Happy Travels!

Evening all out there!

Today I have a very quick card. 

A while ago a relative was clearing out her crafting stash and a lot of things just happened to come my way.  Amongst them was this cute stamp of a teddy driving a car.  So I've made a card using this and a section out of my map book for the background!  I'm going to have to get a new book now, there are quite a few missing sections in this one!

The stamp is called Racing Ted from Funstamps, the sentiments are LOTV and the other bits from my stash.

Here he is:

I would like to enter this in the Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Journey/Travel

That's all for today, thanks for stopping by.

Christmas in August!

Morning everyone

Having just returned from 2 sunny weeks at the seaside it is very strange to be making a Christmas card before school returns!

Anyhow, I have created this little cutie using a LOTV stamp coloured with Promarkers,  Memory Box snowflake die, punched snowflakes using a Woodware punch and added some glamour dust for the snow.  The paper, gems and ribbon are from my stash.  The snowflakes are made using pearlised card from the Papermill Direct but unfortunately that doesn't really show up on the pic.  I also forgot to do a close up photo - think my camera's having a holiday!!

I would like to enter this in the following challenges

Ready-Teddy-Go - dyes and punches

Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday weekend and thanks for popping by.

Lazy Days

Hello everyone

Another day, another card!  I'm not sure about this one!  I think I'm a bit out of my comfort zone using yellow and orange but I've had a go at trying to make a summery card using these colours for a change.  However, I have used one of my favourite stamps, Penny Black's Lazy Days coloured with ProMarkers.  The dies are Spellbinders and Marianne's creatables, sentiment LOTV, paper, ribbon and buttons from my stash and the old favourite butterfly punch.  I have decoupaged the daisy and put a bit of gold glitter in the centre.

Tatty Teddy

Good morning everyone

The weather has cooled down quite a bit here and the garden is certainly enjoying some rain!

Today I have made quite a simple card using some of the Papermania  number stamps and I think the Tatty Teddy stamp was a freebie!  I have avoided lots of embellishments to keep the weight down as this will have to be posted to my Neice.

I have coloured with ProMarkers,  banner dye from Memory Box, papers and pearls from stash.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Ready-Teddy-Go - dyes and punches
Creative Inspirations - anything goes

Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
