Anniversary Waltz



The challenge this week at Daring Cardmakers is Anniversary Waltz.
Which was an ideal challenge for me to ink up my new Hearts stamps from Stampin'Up. I think I must be in simple mode this week as all the cards I've made have had very simple layouts and this in another of them.I've used this layout many times before as it it so versatile.
Not sure why the top paper looks purple when it is in fact beige guess it's just a trick of the light. Sentiment is from Imagine That Papercrafts.

It's a Man's World


Well what did I say about Bank holidays and rain. Yes you guessed it it's tipping it down so bang goes my chilling out in the garden.
The theme at Tuesday Taggers this week is It's a man's world. Now we all now how hard men are to make cards for,It's pointless putting any of those lovely embellishments on they just don't register in their minds.So with this in mind I just made a very simple card but with one of men's favourite topics other than football and that is cars.

Charisma Cards 39


Just a quick card and post as I am not feeling too great today.This was a really quick and simple card to make which only took a few minutes to colour and I just love the sentiment."Life is unpredictable eat dessert first."
Both are from Pink Petticoat.
This card fits the Challenge over at Charisma Cardz this week which is "Sweet Treats" so your card must include food or drink.

Sketch Saturday 103/Penny Black 101


Finally managed to uncover some space to make a couple of cards. Who would believe that emptying one hall cupboard would take up so much space elsewhere. Never mind at least the end is is sight and hopefully all decorating will be finished this week.
This card is for two challenges. I followed this weeks sketch at Sketch Saturday. The second challenge is over at Penny Black and the theme this week is flowers. I've used this cute little stamp from the Hugs set which was yet another purchase at Ally Pally a few weeks ago.I've coloured with copics.

Friday Sketchers 101/Cards for Men


Well I don't know what happened to last week is just disappeared in a flash. Maybe I was just having too much fun to be at my pc.I did spend a day at my friend Gill's and had a lovely lunch with the girls another day. I even spent a day with hubby visiting Grand Designs live in London. The downside to all my activity was I spent the next three days doing absolutely nothing.
When I saw this weeks sketch at Friday Sketchers it was just what I needed for inspiration for a man's card.The challenge at Cards for Men this week is the theme "outside".
Sorry about the poor quality photo but it was hard to take indoors without the light bouncing off the mirri card.

Sketch Saturday 101


What an awful weekend we are having all this rain but then I suppose it is a Bank Holiday and it always rains then.Hubby has got his decorating hat on once again and has started on the hall. All those doors poor hubby has 8 1930's panelled doors to paint plus the picture and dado rails and the skirting board and that's not counting the walls as well. I can see it will take him a few weeks to get it all done.As for me I spent some quality time with my friend Val on Saturday visiting Imagine That. Well they did have a 10% off weekend and a girl can't ignore that now can she.
This card is for Sketch Saturday. I've used my new Hero Arts cupcake stamps which I chose as a prize a few weeks ago when I won the Friday Sketchers challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, weren't I the lucky one.Backing papers are from Carol Ann Sweet Treats CD.
