Happy Birthday Dad xx

Today is my Dad's birthday and boy what a year my poor Dad has had.
Today, though, we aren't looking backwards but forwards 
and hope the next few weeks, and months are more and more positive.

Love you Dad xx

I chose a Teddy Bo image for his card which I adore.

Good morning all.....

The winners of  'Anything Goes' challenge are over on the TLT Challenge blog - 
congratulations to you all !!

Today's challenge is a 

'Photo Inspiration'

I am not a fan of photo inspiration challenges as I never know whether to 
choose the colours, image etc, so on the safe side I tend to stick to the colours.



Now onto my card......

I have used 'Valentine Billie' - cute isn't he....and used Pink Petticoat papers.

Snow Penguin


Today's card is one of my first batch of Christmas orders and you won't believe this lady has already started wrapping her presents - how wrong is that ??

The image is a Digistamp Boutique one and is so cute and easy to colour.
I embossed the whole piece of card with a Sizzix embossing folder and flittered the snow and snowflakes.

Thank you for stopping by - hope you are having a good weekend.

One today.....

Good Evening All !!

Today I went out to lunch with a couple of girlfriends - we were deciding whether we book a lunch for Christmas or do something completely different - in the end we have decided to book a treatment each at a local beauticians which is located in a renovated farm and you get home made cakes, cups of tea etc all served in vintage crockery - it's just so cute and now have something to look forward to :0)

My card today was a request for a friend - I used Baby Rosie from Digistamp Boutique.

Mid-Challenge Reminder

Well another week over and another week closer to Christmas - did I actually just say that ??

My card today is for my Nephew's girlfriend - I haven't coloured 'Swing Billie' before and must 
admit I loved it.
When I went to brush the background the blue was a lot darker than I wanted it to be but looking at the card as a whole it doesn't look too bad.

and don't forget use a LCI image for an extra chance to win.

Take Care

One Idea Three Cards......

Morning - I needed to make some quick and simple female birthday cards and
this is what I came up with.
I love the simplicity and as previously posted am loving my embossing folders at the moment.
 
 This one reminded me of Cadbury's Dairy Milk ;0) 
 
 
My favourite one....

 
using a fimo flower I have had in my stash for such a long time.

 
Thank you for stopping by.

New Month and New Challenge

 
I still can't believe it is October - where on earth did our Summer go -
I must be getting old as weeks are flying by.
 
Today there is a brand spanking new challenge at LCI and
it is gorgeous Julie's turn to hostess the challenge and she has chosen
 
' Paper Piercing and/or Stitching (Real or Faux)'
 
I have used 'Handbag Nikki' today - isn't she gorgeous.
 
I embossed the card front with a new De'sire embossing folder - my stitching went a bit haywire as Celeste my Burmese cat decided to help !!!



 
Hope you enjoy the challenge and look forward to seeing your entries on the challenge blog.
 
Don't forget to visit all the bugs and leave some ladybug love.
 
Hugs
