One for the Boys

I really need to up my stash of Kids cards and as you have noticed the last few have been for the Girls so thought it was high time for a Boy one.
So again I went searching for inspiration out there in blog land and decided to use the sketch over at
Try Stampin On Tuesdays....

They always have fun and easy sketches to work with, go and check them out here
And using this sketch this is what I came up with....

I have used the Make a Monster set from Stampin' Up! in which I paper pieced with Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango DSP.
I am also going to enter this one in the Challenge from Stampin' Royalty this week which is to simply make a masculine themed card, there are some beauties from the design team over there,  you can check them out here.
Best be off, clouds have come over quite heavy and have all the sheets and Doonas on the line.
Happy Stamping

Mojo Monday #243

Hi All, hope your week has been productive thus far, mine is going great guns as you can tell by the number of posts!
I still have a few coloured images sitting here to be used so I headed over to the Mojo Monday site were I knew I find a fantastic sketch.....

Now Square or round is just not my thing so I stretched it down a bit to fit a standard size and tipped it on its side.....

This little one comes from CC design stamps and some more of that sweet paper from My Minds Eye Lime Twist collection, and the little tag which I noticed is a little hard to read is a Papertrey Ink stamp from the Tiny Tags set.
I hope you like her as much as I do.
Now jump over to the Mojo Monday site and check out the entries.
Happy Stamping

Freshly Made Sketches #36

Well as promised back with a card made from my scraps...I have used this weeks sketch from Freshly Made Sketches go and check it out here.
This little cutie is a Tiddly Inks Digi stamp and I have coloured her with my copics and of course the left over pieces of Echo Park paper Yours Truly that I used on my last card.
There wasn't much left as it was from one piece of 6x6. It has only been recently I have got into using the 6x6 pads (I know I have been living in the dark ages) I find them great as it doesn't take much to use a whole sheet and wollar no scraps, unlike a 12x12 in which I have a box full of scraps that I really should either use or dispose of.
Any way must go enter this over at Freshly Made Sketches before times runs out.

Happy Stamping

Pal Paper Arts #135

This week over at Pals Paper Arts they have a great sketch to work with and since I have a pile of coloured pictures sitting on my desk screaming out use me! I thought I'd have a go.
Here's the sketch....
I flip the sketch over and this is what I came up with...
I have used a Kenny K Digi stamp, coloured with my copics and the paper is from the Yours Truly 6x6 collection from Echo park.
I have made a little rule with myself  to use my scraps straight away instead of hording them were they never get looked at again (how long I stick to it we'll see) so I am off to use the scraps from the papers I have used here and I am eyeing off the the sketch at Freshly made but I must be quick because it closes in a few hours, so chop chop off I go....

See you soon

NO ...not me silly! I think if I had more children especially twins I would be rocking in a corner somewhere lol
The three I have already keep me busy enough, but I was asked by a friend to make her a Twin card so here it is...
I have used a Kaszazz Stamp coloured it with my copics and added some October Afternoon Sidewalk papers. Cute Hey?

Now you ask what have I been doing in my absence, well plenty over the Easter School Holidays I painted our three bedrooms, ripped up all the old carpet and got some nice new flooring, Yeah! Big job Hubby was busy Harvesting so it was just a double act of me and my brush, but it was so worth it.
It took me three weeks yeah yeah I know I would never cut it on the block.
Then it took me a week just to sort the place back out again.

Any way kids back at school and Uni, Place all sorted and back to normal, hopefully some more free time to create and blog again.
So see you soon.
