Sweet Stampin' Fathers Day/Special Man Challenge.

Hiya All.

This is a scheduled post today as I have just got back off holiday, so I am wrecked and having a sleep in!!

So as it's Saturday it's challenge time at Sweet Stampin' and this week it's all about the MEN in our lives!
So it's Fathers Day/Special Man....Our sponsors are "us" again with a "Goodie Bag",
Please remember, as we are a stamping challenge, a touch of stamping is needed somewhere.
Have Fun guys.

So this is what I came up with.
I made this card a while ago for a friend's Birthday. Not sure what make the image is, coloured with pro-markers.

Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin'.

Hi Girls

Before I tell you about Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin', I have some exciting news to tell you.
I am off on Holiday (yet again) with Mum and my Sister Mandy (I don't know......did not go on Holiday for 7 years, now I seem to be going every 8-12 weeks.....lol)
This time I am off to Benidorm (again!), I go the day after tomorrow, so tell you all about it when I get back.

So this weeks Challenge is C&S (Clean and Simple). Sponsors this week are "Us" so a Sweet Stampin' Goodie Bag awaits you. Don't forget to add some Stamping to your projects please.

I have another of my Card-io type stamped cards for this weeks challenge, I am sure they can be classed as C&S, as they are stamped straight onto the cards with no matting and layering. Hope you like it.

This card is not actually made using a Card-io set of stamps, but is done in a similar style, the stamps used are by Lavinia Stamps (I just used one colour ink),did a touch of secondary stamping.
In the set you get a branch and three different flowers, the little butterfly is from another of my
card-io sets. The Sentiment Stamp is by Woodware, I finished off by doodling around the edge with a fine liner and added a few Hobby House pearls for the flower middles.......Simple, but I think sweet!

Vintage Baby Boy~

Hi Girls

Hope I find you all well.
I hope the weather is nice where you are (mind you it's gunna be better where I am going on Monday.....Spain for a week with Mum and Sister Mandy. It has come round so quick, one minute it's January next it's May!!

I have been busy lately. Now my Children have both moved into their own homes, I have tons of decorating to do! So one room down and another started, so this weekend is Painting walls (like last weekend), I will be ready for that break next week!!

So I have a quick card to show you today. My Daughter asked for a card for her work friend that was a bit vintage and old worldy, think this fits the bill ok.

Not sure what make these papers are, bought them a few months ago. One side has this hexigon pattern and the other has these vintage toppers on, lovely little old cycle, perfect for a quick card. The sentiment is pc generated. I have used some leftover spotty paper for the border and that edge is an X cut punch. You cannot really tell but it's a nice sage green colour so I have teamed it up with a brown matting layer.

Saturday is Sweet Stampin' Time..

Hi Girls

Another Saturday means another challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This week our theme is "Inspired by a book or Film" and our Sponsors this week are "us" so a lovely craft goodie bag awaits you!
Go on have a go....don't forget we are a Stamping challenge, so a touch of stamping somewhere please, ta.

I have another Card-io card for this week, I made a few of these a few weeks ago, I love the crisp clean look they give. I decided to go with both the "Book & Film" theme, with The Secret Garden!
Not very imaginative, but it's very flowery so is garden like!!

I have used several stamps from different sets, some Hobbyhouse Pearls and a touch of Stickles.
Very Simple, but fun to make.
