Sorry I'm rushing this morning as I'm taking my Mum to the hearing clinic.  She doesn't see very well and you know what hearing aids are like, so tiny and she broke the box that the battery goes into, so I'm hoping they will be able to fix it for her.

Will catch up with you all soon... have a lovely day and take care!!

Super Striker

Good morning everyone:) Are we really into the first week of March already, it seems forever since I last posted, but here I am back again, and hope to be able to blog a little more often.... my hubby retired recently and we are trying to get into some kind of routine lol!! it is a bit hit and miss with my crafting at the moment so I'm just taking one day at a time...  I have managed to make a card for my grandsons 7th Birthday... just don't know where the time has gone since he was first born... he is really into football at the moment so thought this cute image from LOTV fitted the bill perfectly.

Also it's another great challenge over at Papertake Weekly The challenge this week is Anything Goes with an option of using flowers if you like... No flowers from me this week though, although I did think about adding a few daisies in the grass, then thought better of it lol!!

The image is called Super Striker and I have coloured him with my inktense pencils, I finally had a chance to use this lovely die from MFT called chicken wire. I think it makes a fabulous net with a little cheese cloth behind it. I decoupaged the football to make it stand out a little more too but you can't really see it in the photo's. I used the pieces from the chicken wire die to mount Liam's name on, they were just the right size!

LOTV are sponsoring us this week and there's a £10 voucher for the lucky winner!! 


Hope you will join us this week, we would love to see all your gorgeous cards.  Do pop along to the main blog and check out what the rest of the team have done!!

Thank You

Good morning everyone, and a very 'Happy New Year' to you all... What a fabulous Christmas and New Year David and I have had... we had all our family here for Christmas and then New Year we took my Mum with us down to Deborah's in Worcester and we had a such a lovely time!! but all good things come to an end lol!! and it's time to get back into the swing of things! ... so being Tuesday it's time for a new challenge over at Papertake Weekly and seeing it's the beginning of the month it's Anything Goes with the option of making a 'Thank You' card or gift.... I think I've slipped up a bit with this card as I should of printed the image onto watercolour paper or cream card as it doesn't look quiet right to me... also maybe the image could of been a bit bigger too!! but no time to create another one... I do love this image it's one I won from Bugaboo last year, and I think it will get used a lot.... The lovely vertical dies Santa sent me lol!! I loved these when I saw them on Liz's blog, I think they will be so useful!!
