A Grown Up Card

I'm all behind today but just before I head off to Brum for another week of hospital visits I can show you my card for this week's challenge over at Make My Monday - the theme this time around is a Grown Up Card - no cute images.

Inks: Smoky Slate, Garden Green, Elegant Eggplant
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Silver Glitter

Now as I said above  - I was a little late with this post as I've been packing and getting ready to head off to stay with my Mum awhile. Dad has gone into hospital for the final part of his chemo treatment and he will be in for 3 - 4 weeks as he will be having some stem cell replacement too.
I have made loads of mini card kits to take with me so hopefully I shall still be able to fulfil my dt commitments too.
Orders can still be placed via e-mail or my shop (see links above)

Before I go here is a picture of my Mum and Dad taken last week at Mum's 70th birthday party - Dad looks really well in this but I know as soon as his treatment starts he will be looking ill again


Here's a rare pic of me (I hate having my photo taken) and my baby brother - doesn't he look pleased to be sitting next to me???!!!!


Bye for now - see you soon xx

Valentine

It's a new challenge in The Male Room and this week we are going with Valentine - for men only of course! This is the card I've made for my hubby - he never reads my blog (I know how rude!) so I know he won't see it before next Friday!


Clive loves hares - the more mystical the better, so I've created this one in the moon light - heart shaped.

I haven't used all Stampin' Up stamps this time but I will list the ones I did use

Walk on the Wild Side (grass on the moose stamp)
Love and Sympathy (upside down stems on the flower stamp)
Delightful Dozen (sentiment)

The background and moon were sponged using Midnight Muse, Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler and Black Stazon ink.

Anything But A Card

It's Monday again and that means another challenge over on Make My Monday. This week Fliss is shaking things up a bit with an 'Anything But A Card' theme - no cards this week!
Here's what I made


A set of decorated pegs - they have magnetic strips on the back so they are handy for attaching to the fridge. I got my air drying clay out for these too, they are extremely light embellishments so won't pull the pegs down with their weight.
There are some outstanding projects over on the MMM blog so please do pop over and take a look.

Materials - Stampin' Up (Except for pegs and magnets)
Birthday Basics DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper, Air Drying Clay, Strawberry Slush Re-inker.

My Turn at 52CCT

Morning all - it's my turn to host the month's challenges at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and as always we kick off with a sketch - take a look


And here is my card


You will be forgiven for thinking that it is very close to my last card for the 52CCT sketch but I am having an idea (yes I know it's frightening!). I am thinking that I will do all the sketches similar so that come December I will have a nice little pack of similar styled cards to give as a gift or use as a raffle prize. That's the idea anyway!
Washi tape is perfect for this design and so quick too, and I do love the gold sequins that are now in the new Spring/Summer mini. Along with the gold foil card stock they add a lovely touch of glamour to my cards.

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Hello Lovely, Petite Pairs
Ink: Pear Pizzazz
Card Stock: Naturals White, Very Vanilla, Gold Foil Card, Real Red
Accessories: God Washi Tape, Gold Sequins, Dimensionals
