A Quick Update

Hello all - I'm back home now and dad is out of hospital although his treatment has left him very poorly. He now faces daily visits back to hospital for constant blood tests and check ups.
I'm sure I will be popping back to see him very soon but right now I am preparing for a weekend of craft fairs and a trip to Manchester next week for the Stampin' Up Convention - feeling a little panicky as I haven't yet completed my swaps or Card Candy swaps!
I also failed to show off a couple of DT cards so I'll add them now and try and get back on track tomorrow!


52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown colour challenge- open 'til tonight



Make My Monday - Anything But A Card - challenge open 'till tomorrow night.

A Day of Catch-up

Morning everyone. Today as my post title suggests is going to be a day of catching up. My poorly husband is on the mend although we have a hospital visit tomorrow afternoon for some more tests. We have also had some very bad news about my Dad. His cancer has progressed and has become quite aggressive and therefore he is going to have some pretty intensive treatment. He is looking at 4 months of intense chemotherapy with long stays in hospital ending with a 3 week stay in the QE hospital in Birmingham for stem cell treatment. So, with both hubby and Dad in and out of hospital I think I am going to be a bit busy for the foreseeable future.
I have been working hard over the weekend making as many of my DT cards as possible so hopefully I can keep up with that. If I don't get around to commenting on your work as often as I should - please don't be offended. A lot of my post will be scheduled ones so although it may look as if I am around I may not be. Thanks for understanding.

*********************************************************************************

OK so while I'm here I will do the first catch up post of the day! Here is the card I should have posted Thursday for CAS - Colours & Sketches


A little out of date now however there is still time to take part in this week's challenge, please do head on over and take a look -

Fancy Folds for Christmas

Sorry this is late folks - been looking after a poorly husband this weekend. He's a little under the weather and needed some TLC.
Back to business though and here is my card for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - the theme this week (if you couldn't guess from the post title) is 'Fancy Fold Cards'





This really isn't that hard to do. The main card was decorated and the fold out part was made by concertinaing a piece of black CS and then placing it on a tag die with the folds lined up above the bottom cutting blade. I used the retired Stampin' Up Two Tags die and my folds were placed on the die just above the half way mark - in this case there is a fold line on the die so it was easy to see. Decorative pieces were added to the extra long tag and some sentiments and then it was folded up and attached to the front of the card with some ribbon to keep it closed.

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Joyful Christmas
Ink: Real Red
Card Stock: Naturals Ivory, Real Red, Basic Black
Paper: Polka Dot Parade DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Big Shot, Two Tags Die (retired), Scallop Trim Punch, Very Vanilla Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones

Nature in The Male Room

Morning all - it's time for a new challenge in The Male Room and this week's challenge is NATURE. Take a look at my card


I have been having fun with my brayer again - it really is one of my favourite things to use and gives such a beautiful effect.
I have a confession to make too - the stamps are not Stampin' Up!!!!!!!!! However I do think they compliment my Stampin' Up colours perfectly and I have had my eye on those hares for a long time now.
Here's another piece I did with them - this isn't a card but I have framed it as a picture


This was a practise piece as I followed an on line tutorial just to get the feel of the stamps but I loved the result so much at the end that I have framed it to go on my wall!

Stampin' Up Materials Used
Stamps: Everything Eleanor (Bird on the wire)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive,Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy (retired) Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Black Stazon
