Missed challenge.

I sadly missed Di's last challenge, but I did create a card for it, so thought I'd post it anyway!

Summertime at Di's digi challenge.

Well I'm back from my holidays now and we did make it on to the beach once, where my little nephew experienced sand everywhere for the first time. It was so sweet he just loved it. So it's quite fitting today to use the lovely Izzy image on my card from Di's digis with fab blue sea and lovely sand! Do pop over and join our challenge and visit my other teamies for some fab inspiration.

Elzybells cards.

I was peeking through my Elzybells stamp collection last night and I confess to being a bit " Oh I'd forgotten about that one" and so I came up with these quickies.

They are so plain and simple, no embellishing just coloured and stamped sentiments. I must be losing my touch!

Wedding card for my Niece.

Hi all, Hope you're all having a fab Sunday. Well it's my niece's wedding next month and so I have made her this card to celebrate her marriage. It's a gorgeous Lili of the valley image. I have used some lovely faux ribbon from the ribbon girl, some wild Orchid crafts blossoms and a crown pin and a memory box die for my scalloped posie..
I am also enetering this into the
 ribbon girl challenge and
 papertake weekly challenge
CMLI group monthly challenge.

Barbecuing Father?

With Father's Day approaching fast and you never know we might be able to get the barbecue out I have made this card for Dad for Father's Day. It's a Lili of the valley image, coloured with promarkers and embellished with  a memory box twiggy tree die and a few black pearls form my stash. the papers are a combination of old papermania ones and an odd bit from my bits box. I have also used a Magnolia Doohickey die.

Here's looking at you!

Don't you just love the Penny Black mice? Here's a couple of them having fun with some glasses. They have been coloured with promarkers and I have glossy accented the lenses and the eye chart and yes they did take forever to dry! Papers are Echo Park courtesy of a birthday pressie from my lovely friend Diane and the little black pearls are from my stash.

I have had a disastrous weekend! It's been a catalogue of frustrations and difficulties and I went off to Cornwall to have a great weekend with family and friends but injuries, a death, and illnesses, not to mention rain  and missed jubilee party  ruined the lot!  Glad to be home in one piece!

Anyway I'm afraid I'm very late posting Di's digi challenge for this fortnight, so apologies for this. Our theme this fortnight is male inspired and I have used this very cute bear with my mind's eye papers, some bakers twine, a button and of course my beloved stitching. think I might treat myself to some more crafting today just to unwind!
