Birthdays are like buses

They all arrive at the same time

Havent managed much crafting over the last week or so as I am running about like a chicken with it's head choppped of trying to get everything sorted for a weeks holiday to Turkey. So between working and sorting out insurance, money, tickets, packing etc there hasn't been much time for anyting else. (Why do men think getting ready means putting their jacket on as they leave for the airport!)

but I have quite a few birthdays coming up which guarantees that my mojo has gone awol. So, this card has been made with one of my nieces in mind, problem is I haven't decided which one!

I will get round to putting a sentiment in the centre but until I decide which one its for I will leave it blank. One is 21 this year and the other is 22, I have a feeling that I may make a more individual card for the 21st but time is limited so who knows they may both end up with very similar cards this year. I also have 2 50ths My brother and my best friend both of which I need for the day after I return from holiday. Neither of which have been started yet so I have 3 days AAAAGGGHHHH!

and now for something completely different

as I did say when I started my blog that my style was, for want of a better word, eclectic I thought that I would include something completely different from my normal coloured stamped images

so here is a new baby card comissioned recently for the imminent arrival of twins (a boy and a girl) the gatefold card is made using a kit bought from QVC on the recent craft day These cute images have both a back and a front so I've used acetate windows to show them off. I do hope that QVC decide to bring out the characters as rubber stamps as I think they are really cute, I have added sakura stardust to the stitching on the buttons to make the card sparkle aswell as teeny hand and feet brads and a jewelled motif

sugarbowl challenge 10

Can't believe it's Friday again already! Its another sunny day here in Fife. Unfortunately the sunshine is interspersed with massive black clouds and heavy downpours. Oh the joys of Scottish weather. 4 seasons in one hour never mind one day.
Thought I would take the plunge this week and enter a challenge and as I am just a bit obsessed with Gorjuss girls at the moment it made sense to pick the sugarbowl. This weeks challenge is to include buttons on your card .I have used some DCWV papers and rub ons, a couple of floradoodle flowers and a cute pink button the finish The image is coloured with promarkers. Thanks for looking

Thought I would make a card this afternoon while watching a bit of the craft day on QVC so used another of the gorjuss girls with some dcwv papers and ribbons from my stash.
I thought the card turned out quite nice till I tried to stand it up while the silicone dried. I'd only made it upside down! so poor wee gorjuss girl would have to do a head stand to allow the card to stand up! I have photgraphed her the right way up as I dont want her to end up all dizzy. Guess I will be chopping the front off the card and attaching it to another one the right way round.

Please tell me you do things like this too
