Getting the young one's card making

Hi again,

Just wanted to share this card with you...

My daughter, Evie has just made it for her Grandad Dave (my dad) who is going to be 60 on Friday.  She did everything herself (she's 7) stamped him, coloured and chalked the sky and grass.  She even got his favourite football colours in for Leeds Utd (I know it's not exact but never mind!).  I think he's fab!!

I've entered it into a challenge over at Messy's Mini Missions - Summer Fun

Less is More Week 24 - Circles

Well hello everyone, long time no blogging.  Its been such a busy time I haven't really had time to make any cards, but now I'm officially on holiday for 6 WEEKS yippeeee!!  So I hope to be able to do more.

I did however make a card and picture for my friend which I will try and upload later in the week (she's just had a baby girl).

Anyway onto this weeks Less is More challenge (I am soooo late with this), but the theme this week is CIRCLES.  Struggled a bit, but this is what I came up with...

I've used a Craftwork Cards message and gone round the edges with Candi.  I quite like how it's turned out and am going to try it in different colours.

I will try and get round to your blogs and leave you comments but got to get on and make my Dad's 60th birthday card which is for this Friday (will try and post when finished) so no pressure!!

Hope you like the card and enjoy the rest of your week.

Less Is More - No 2 - Gizelle the Giraffe

Evening all,

Had a bit more time this afternoon as my kids went out on a bike ride, I decided to hunt through my stash to see if I could come up with anything else 'leggy', for the Less is More challenge and I came across this image.  She is called Gizelle and she is an old freebie digital image from Little Musings.  I've had her a while and not used her, but I think I've fallen in love.  She comes either with or without tutu, but she just looks gorgeous with it I had to use that one...

She's printed directly onto the card and I've coloured her with watercolour crayons.  I've also added a touch of glitter to her tutu.

As it was getting late, I couldn't think of any witty sentiment to put with her - but if anyone wants to help me out!!
Hope you like her.
Bye for now.

LIM Week 23 - Something with Legs

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a good week.  Well Saturday has come round again and it's time for another challenge on the Less Is More Blog.  First of all thought I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to Chrissie and Mandi for Showcasing my pin wheel card, I was so chuffed.

Anyway onto today, and this weeks challenge is a one layer card "Something with Legs".  Oh My! I thought and all kinds of ideas came to mind, but it finally rested upon this...

I wanted to do something bright and fun.  The stamps are a Pink Petticoat freebie from a magazine.

Not sure how well it shows up, but I've coloured them with Sakura glaze pens as I wanted to give them a shine, and added a little touch of glitter to the bottom of each one.  Gonna try and have a stab at another one now.
Have a good weekend.

New Baby

My friend Roxanne has just had a baby girl.  Here is the card I'm going to send...

The photo hasn't done it much justice because it's got glitter on the flowers and round the edge (must try harder!!).
It's all from Craftwork Cards, the papers, Candi, flower and template.  The Stamp is Paula Pascual.
Hope you like.

Afternoon everyone,

So while Evie n Oli were at school, I've managed to make two cards.  This one I'm entering onto PaperPlay Challenges.  The theme there this week is 'Fruity'.  I decided to go with Pink Petticoat's 'Life's Lemons', I think the papers are really bright and summery.  However, I am struggling to 'bond' with my card, it's just not turned out how I planned.  I'm sure it will grow on me, so here it is....

Would love to know what you think.
Bye for now.

What a Week!

Morning, well so far it's been a fab week - my birthday yesterday, been awarded Investors In Pupils status at the school where I work (it's abit like Investors In People, but aimed at the kids - anyway I co-ordinated the project and we got some fab feedback).  Finally to put the icing on the cake - my pin wheel card has been ShowCASed on Less is More Blog, sooooo thrilled.  Hope to get some cards done later, when Oli goes to school.
Hope everyone has a good week!

Less Is More - Shades of Blue

Hi everyone,

Can't believe Saturday has come round again so quickly.  Had such a busy week at work and next week is set to get busier (nearly the end of term though!), so haven't had much chance to make anything, However, the kids today have gone out with their gran and grandad to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and then back for a sleepover.  So as it's going to be my birthday on Wednesday (yipeee) my hubby and I are going out for a lovely meal with some friends, I can't wait.

So it's been quite a relaxing day, I managed to get all the cleaning done this morning and though I would set too on this week's Less is More challenge which is Shades of Blue (I can't believe how many entries have already been submitted for this challenge and how fab they all look - aren't we a clever lot of LIMettes!!

Before I get to my card for this week I just wanted to say a huge, massive THANK YOU!! to everyone who left comments about my pin wheel card over the week.  I ended up with 50 comments and they were all so lovely it really made my heart swell, you are all fab.
Anyway here is my card for this week...

The stamp is an old Craftwork Cards one called Elegant Grasses.  I've stamped it in two Memento colours - Summer Sky and Danube Blue and then I've mounted it onto some dark blue card.  The font is Scriptina.  If you look carefully I've added some little clear gems onto the flower and under the sentiment.  These were a steal - they were all over each  table at the wedding we went to recently, so as the kids were getting restless I gave them a job of collecting as many as they could.  Needless to say, I've quite a few now (well they would only have been thrown away!!!)

Anyway, that's enough jabbering on from me, I'm going to see what other gorgeous creations everyone else has been coming up with.
Bye for now.
