How cute is this

How cute is this... My grandson Finn at his first wedding yesterday. My daughter wanted him in a kilt and he was the cutest sight. Finn had a great day as we all did and was very well behaved.
I hope to have more pictures later when hubby downloads photographs from his camera.

Christmas in July

I am hoping to have a little more time to blog but don't hold your breath...

This card is for Penny Black Saturday challenge and I used the Friday sketchers sketch.

At last 2 minutes to show you this card and then off out again. Since my last post my dad has been in hospital after a fall, so I have been busy with hospital visits. He came home yesterday but now we are having to get the house modified as his mobility is not too good. Life gets hectic at times...
Now my card is made with one of Ruth's new digital images. I have coloured it with Promarkers
and used My Minds Eye and K & Co papers. I also used Nesties, X-Cut and Woodware punches.

Another busy weekend for us but luckily it is a holiday weekend in this area, so no work tomorrow. Friday night was my Niece's hen night and last night was my cousins birthday and another party. Today my dad wasn't to well so been to see him twice and to make dinner. Plus we are changing ot firepace in the lounge, but with all the interuptions it is taking forever. Now on to the card...

Truly Scrumptious has a lovely sketch which I have used for this baby card. The optional extra to the challenge was 'how does your garden grow' which I didn't manage to fit in this time. This card also fits into C.R.A.F.T theme of babies and Passion for Promarkers which is Animals.

I used PB image, Messy Rabbit images, Promarkers, Nesties, Martha Stewart border punch, X-Cut hearts, Craft Creations paper, Liquid Pearls & Stickles.

I needed two similar cards. So I thought I would just make them the same to save time. I used the sketch for Papertake weekly, then I made a mistake when folding the second card, silly me. So not one being one to be defeated I decided to reverse the sketch and came up with a similar card...

I used Vera's free digital image by Lings Design Studio , Promarkers, My Mind's Eye papers an chalks.

My hubby was trying to be artistic with this shot... I thought I should post it since he went to so much bother.

I am entering these card into the following challenges.:-
Papertake weekly - sketch
Charisma cardz - Watch the birdie
Digtal Tuesday - red, white and blue

It is another blustery day again, not too cold but not nice enough to sit in the garden. So crafting again... This card fits a couple of challenges Charisma Cardz 'Watch the Birdie' and Paperplay 'Your numbers Up'. I was asked to make a card with an owl on it and I didn't have a stamp that fitted the bill, so I pieced together this scene. The owl is a freebie digi image from Dustin Pike and the branch is from Messy Rabbit baby bunny set. I think they compliment each other well.

I used Nesties, Promarkers, Craft Creation Papers, Cuttlebug swirls, Liquid Pearls, Sizzlets letters and the rest from my stash.
