Mmm Ice Cream

Good afternoon - hope it's glorious wherever you are! This morning the boys and I went to see "Brave" at Cineworld - they boys had their sweets finished before the adverts came on! We then ran the gauntlet which is school shoes shopping at Clarks (nightmare). After all that excitement and some lunch I'm finishing off this lovely day with a trip to the dentist, ha ha.

This little card is very appropriate for today's weather! Combining a fab sketch from Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge with the "Cool Summer Treats" theme over at Crafty Creations

This cheeky chappy is Pollycraft's Chester and I would love an ice cream that size! The papers were a magazine freebie. 

Thanks for popping by!

Froggy Friend

Evening all. Got another wee card for you today this time with a garden theme. As I've said before I love using sketches. When I'm stuck for ideas, I look through all the sketches I've used in the past to give me inspiration - sometimes I even mix and match them!

This card is based on this week's sketch over at Friday Sketch Challenge. Now I will admit at first glance I wasn't sure how I'd work with it, but once I had decided on the image it came together (I think!!). I would also like to enter this into this week's Creative Inspirations challenge which is "In the Garden".

The little froggy (with his googly eyes) is an old digi stamp from Pollycraft coloured with promarkers. The papers are MME's "Kraft Funday" with the sentiments from Craftwork Cards. Not sure if I've overdone it with the gem star though!!

Thanks for popping by!

Best Wishes

Happy Monday! It's been a busy day in the White house - softplay, a small trip to Hobbycraft then lunch. They boys are currently outside playing swingball. Peace for the moment! 

Tidied up some of my craft space yesterday and as usual found things that I had forgotten about - it's like buying them all over again!

Anyhoo onto my card. This one combines 3 challenges:

* Sweet Sketch Wednesday #165
* Divas by Design #46 - Flowers
* Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #144 - Pink 

Lovely Tilda casting a wish with her wand, teamed up with the lovely new papers from Prima "Tea Thyme" which has very muted pinks. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flowers and seam binding were from ebay. As always there is a little sparkle there as well!

Thanks for visiting! Sheena xx

Just for You

Afternoon - a dry one here so far. Been swimming with the boys which they enjoyed. I took them out for lunch where Hamish managed to set a colouring pencil on fire - much to their amusement. Currently I have Hamish in Bill Oddie mode watching the birds in the garden - my favourite quote so far is "mummy, we have a bald eagle in the garden" - not bad for living in Falkirk lol!!

Anyway, onto my creation for today. This one is for this week's Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge which was a great sketch to work with:

The image is a cutie from LOTV coloured with promarkers. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the paper is from a lovely Grace Taylor "Playtime" pad. The clouds are all glittery although you can't see it from this photo.

Thanks for visiting!

Evening all - are you enjoying the Olympic coverage? I've not been watching it non-stop but I did see (Sir) Brad win his gold - I can see sideburns becoming trendy again lol!!

Managed a little card, a departure from my usual style, got all grungy and distressed (that last bit was me making this card ha). Used a sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches. The image is a Magnolia and the ticket I got from ebay today (that's what gave me the idea!). The paper is a digi paper from Raspberry Road Designs and part of the Big Top collection. I then scrunched them all up and inked them with some TH. The negative strip is also from TH. The little dots are Card Candi from Craftwork Cards.

I hope you like my change of style!!
