You may have seen this card yesterday because instead of saving I publish it then quickly deleted it and started again. When I make a card I upload the photo into drafts in case Mr Blogger has an issue with uploading the pic it will already there.
So this is Mr Dunderton from Dr Digi who has loads of fun Mens images, I've also tried but failed I think using the Sketch Saturday sketch. I decided he would look good up against the Bricked embossed wall and and the strips are edged with a zig zags using MFT die.
I did put Mr Dunderton slightly higher but he look like he was floating so I brought him down to the ground but them I felt he needed a bit of grass to stand on which is using Martha Stewart Icicle punch.
The sentiment was chosen so I could use for Father's Day or a Birthday, it came from CASual Fridays.
I'm off to go swimming this morning with a Disabled club I only started last week but I'm still not 100% with a tickly cough which is keeping me awake all night but felt it would look bad not going the second week.

Well I've been awake since silly o'clock so I've got up and decided to post my card for today. This little darling has been waiting in my drafts for a while. Possibly it was because my camera has made her face wishy washy don't know why it does that when the rest of outfit is fine.
She is called Georgia and of course you can find her in Mo's shop here. Papers are from LOTV designed by Nitwits got slightly carried away adding pearls to the printed flowers. The foliage die is Memory Box Lavish Branch with some punched flowers with again pearls centres, finally the sentiment is from Craftwork cards.

Time for new challenge on Simon Says Stamp Challenge
and this week its
Take a Picture
anything photograph/camera/film related
anything photograph/camera/film related
So onto my card I was a bit stumped when thinking of a card for this challenge but when you sit down and see the rest of the team you will realise there are plenty of ideas just wish I had them when I made my card.
I used a Penny Black Say Cheesecake stamp which luckily has a camera on and since its a large stamp my card was almost done.
The papers are American Crafts Soho Garden and I finally got round to using the Spellbinders Curved Borders die. I also used the Simon Says Stamps Bella Bloom but to make is more masculine I added button centres. Last but least I used the All Occasions Banner stamp and die set.
Now you know the drill to win the chance of this fabulous prize you have to enter the challenge with a new card no backlinking and you need to enter your post using the linky thing on the challenge blog. Also you need to link to the challenge in your post or you won't be eligible for the prize.
Something to tie you over to the new Simon Says Stamps Challenge later. Its using one of their stamp sets called Circle Friends, the bees are a fab size to cut out but I also stamp on yellow and cut out the strips so they matched with everything else.
My hexagon are MFT but used the frame border but cut out the outline of a hexagon which I then run through the xyron so they wer sticking and stuck them on the stamped honeycombe circle, then simply cut round them.
The sentiment is stamped inside a Talk bubble but I cut it yellow and then white but trimmed round the white to allow a yellow border to show through. The sentiment is from the Circle Friends stamp set.
Sorry a bit late this morning it was a late night last night picked DS from the airport but didn't realise they shut off the A3 the main road to the M25 so had to take a longer route.
See you at 2pm

I made this card a couple of weeks ago cos I got my challenges mixed up so hope I can remember what I used. First of all the new challenge on Everybody Art Challenge is for Flowers nice and easy.
Right to start with I've used Fussy Frankie from the Cry Babies set, you can buy them separately or as a set we all know which one I've got.
The papers are Doodlbug and the sentiment is an old one I found which I think works a treat.
Flourish Foliage from Memory box for my flowers CC Designs five point flowers which I've tried to match the pattern papers. Some faux stitching to finish.
Do pop over to the challenge to check out the team.
I'm not going to go on about the cold and now the tickly cough I have nevertheless no crafting was done yesterday, fingers crossed I make it today

I love how this turned except one thing but more about that later. I'm using the Freshly Made Sketch and the flowers are Wind Flower a digi from Janey Digi Designs, I particular like this flower cos it has the leaves as well.
I did have issues I cut the centres out and then I went and did something stupid like dotted them with a white pen looked awful but saved by Micro Beads, well I'm not keen on them but its not a wasted card.
The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the dotty paper is by them as well.
So my biggest bug is the ribbon it is no way that colour, its obviously to do with light shadow and a camera with a life of its own.
I delighted (not) to inform you that I have a cold and feeling a bit pants but I reckon Mr Mojo has legged it rather than get one himself so it will be interest what I shall be making this week!

You're right I'm such a coward and I couldn't bring myself to post the previous card on the LIM challenge good job I had this one made as well.
I picked it up at the Make it Show at Little Claire's stall while chatting to Heidi. I was going to colour it in but I thought how fab it looked just in Black and White. They look a bit like the zentangle drawings they're probably not but thats what they remind me of.
Of course its been debbylised by cutting, the different parts out and using silicone glue to give them dimension and layered.
Just some tiny scallops Martha Stewart punch and the All Occasions Banner set from Simon Says Stamps.
Not sure if I shall get into my craftroom today, woken up to a scratching throat not a good start for the following week.
This is a cheeky LIM card they're asking for Cats and Dogs and I couldn't help wondering whether I would get away with using paw prints.
The stamp is quite old and possibly an Anita but the sentiment was from a Simon Says Stamps Exclusive stamp set called Friendship Circles. A spotty ribbon to finish.
Now do I have the courage to post it on the challenge blog.

Its a Saturday well at least I think it is and so I like to post a Penny Black card, this week we're back to some cuteness.
The papers are Echo Park Take a Note possibly and I've used the Triple Scallop Border die from MFT but I ran it in plain red as well as the pattern, I quite like it.
The flourish is a Honeyblossom Sprig and the flowers are Fancy Blossom both from Memory Box. Sentiment is from LOTV.
There is a sketch here you can just see in the bottom right hand corner that its two triangle mats, the sketch from Sketch and Stash is totally hidden, also I added a border so its not a true sketch.
The stamp is of course Penny Black but its called Sugar Sweet Dreams not sure if it still available.
