At my age .....

...  I can wear whatever I want! Or indeed what I can get to fit me lol! This week seems to have flown by and there has been no craftiness done until now. Only 2 more weeks of school until the Easter holidays and they can't arrive quickly enough!

Over at Seize the Birthday this week the sketch is taking a masculine spin and over at Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge they are having a laugh. So it could only mean one thing for my card - bringing out Bugaboo's Gus! Let's face it every family has a Gus!

I had to go with bright papers for this one and chose WRMK "72 & Sunny" and some twine - simples! The tag sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and Gus's bucket, glasses and beach ball have had the glossy accents treatment.  

Thanks for visiting!

One more candle .....

Good evening! Mid week post from me - how unusual! My Monday did not turn out quite as I planned - ended up in A&E for 3 hours with oldest as his school thought he had fractured his cheekbone in a playground accident. Thankfully it was just rather bruised but my gosh that was 3 hours I won't get back again! It was also really busy for a weekday afternoon - I was really surprised. 

This little card is for a colleague at work who is 60 tomorrow but doesn't want the world to know so it's a low key creation with no mention of "60"! I used this weeks great sketch over at Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge:

The irate looking lady is of course Bugaboo's Stella - don't think I'd cross her! The papers are Prima "Doodle Deux" and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards. Everything else was lurking in my stash. 

Off to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert on Friday night at the Edinburgh Playhouse and staying over so very looking forward to being boy free for a wee while!

Thanks for visiting!

Another wee card made although this one definitely did not turn out how I'd planned it! This one follows this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

I had not meant to go a bit steampunk with it as I started out with stamping black and white butterflies but I could just not get them to work with the paper so I had a rummage through my stamps and still went with something that flies - an airship!

The papers are the lovely Prima "Printery" and the stamp is one of a set of 3 from the Hero Arts "Flying Airships" set. There is a Papermania Chronology gear to which I have added a flower and brad. Gave TH On the Edge Steampunk an airing and added some gems. So not what I started with but I do quite like it (I think!)

Mr Fix It

Sunday again - its been a whole week since I made anything crafty! Life just seems to get in the way lol. 

Peaceful here at the mo - hubby's watching football and the boys are out playing. Playing along with a couple of challenges with this card - Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge have a theme of St David's Day and want to see Dragons and/or daffodils. Have combined it with this week's masculine card sketch over at Seize the Birthday. So this is what I have come up with (although not sure about it - it looked better in my head ha ha):

This not so very scary dragon is Mr Fix It by Dustin Pike. The papers are Prima's Craftsman which had their first outing and the sentiment is Craftwork Cards. The frame is one of my new Spellbinders "Labels Thirty" and I just put some faux stitching on the edges.

Well off to do more crafting while no one needs my attention!
