here is my take on the sketch ~used k& co papers, sugarnellie stamp, nestabilities pinking cirlcles, sizzix corners, flowers and brads from my stash.

please take a look at all the other DT cards ~enjoy your day xx

it`s your day

just showing a card i made earlier in the week using the fab sketch over on CUPCAKE CRAFT challenge ~it is a birthday card for a friend, who has their birthday tomorrow.

used basic grey papers, sugarnellie stamp, nestabilities ovals, pennyblack wording, brad, ribbon and these fab gems which change colour from my stash ~finished with glitter.

sorry not around but lewis has been ill and still is very poorly now for 5 days (high temperature)~so have not been crafting, blogging, spending time with my family from the USA and no sleep!!! i am so tired ~ so glad i got this card made at the beginning of the week, think it will be a while until i`m back to normal. xx

just the usual ~dad

well it is fathers day here today ~different card from me today ~no stamps and no watercolour paints used ~no , as you can guess decoupage.... and no glitter!!
followed the sketch over on SCRAPADDICTS ~not used one for a while!!

used la pashe, "remember when..." decoupage sheets, dovecraft man paper.. and really not much else except different card used for matting and layering!! (with all the layers and loads of sticky pads ~was difficult getting it into the envelope!!.. much to my husband amusement)

just perfect for my father-in-law ~ (not cute cats or any of the other stamps i have!!)

hope you all have a fun day with your dad , or father of your children today ~guess it`s the grand prix today... or cricket ..or what ever they can watch on that square box!!!!
