Goodie or Baddie?

Good Morning!!
Well as the title of this post suggests "goodie or baddie?"
I am unsure whether or not this card really works but it's growing on me - just!!
Not a lot to say about it really other than it's a forever friends stamp and I have used my new MFT film strip die, isn't it fab!!
These dies are my new addiction at the moment and i still have lots I haven't used yet but seem to keep buying more!!
Sound familiar??
Well i have been up bright and early doing lots of washing (exciting eh!) as it looks like it gonna be a shiny sunny day, fingers crossed anyway!!
I am entering my card into the following challenges
secret crafter - male card
cupcake craft - boy oh boy oh boy
fussy and fancy - man cards
creative inspirations - one for dad
Well, I need more inspiration for male cards so will be blog hopping tonight!
see you soon

Fathers Day Card!

Good Afternoon!!
A man card for you today I thought I had best start on the many Fathers Day cards I have to make so this is Number 1 using a very old sugar nellie image, in fact one of the few man/boy images I own so it does get aired a lot.
I have used the fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday and you can win a fab MFT voucher!! Woo hoo! they do the most fantastic dies so my fingers are crossed!!
A quick post from me today as need to do some food shopping its rather like "old mother hubbard's kitchen" and with 3 young lads that eat non stop I had best get stocked up!!
i will also enter the following challenges
papertake weekly - anything goes
craft room challenge - anything goes
Last but not least the "fish Curry" was a hit and I will be requesting it again!!
Yummy yum yum!!

Double pocket card!

Hullo, Hullo,
A new style card for me a "Double pocket card" with two little tags.
This was a first attempt and not as complicated as first thought so will definitely be making more - me likes these!!!
I have used the adorable Flowers for Mimi , Penny Black stamp , those little birdies are so tweet!! this has to be one of my favourites!
As the challenge this week was Doodling over at Penny Black Saturday you can see I have done lots of faux stitching and a few dots here and there!!
Here is a close up of the two little Doo hickey tags using Elzybells sentiments, I have used white organza and pink twine through the holes.
Absolutely smothered the edges of the card with stickles so it's lovely and sparkly!!
There is also a challenge over at Penny Black Blog which is using Fun Folds and there is a fab tutorial so will be trying that next for sure.
I will also be entering my card into Penny Black at Allsorts - favourites.
Craft room challenge -anything goes
Right must go there is a "fish curry" cooking in the kitchen - not me cooking I'm busy blogging, to be honest fish curry sounds wrong to me but will let you know how it goes !!!
Toodle pop!

Baby Card!!

Good Morning!!!
looks like it is going to be glorious the sun has most definitely got his hat on today!!!
I should know I have been awake since 4am!!
Yes stupid o'clock tossing and turning wheezing and sneezing and beating the life out of the other half snoring!!! GRRRRRRRRRRRR!!
In the end i gave in and got up at 5am and did some washing so it's out on the line already swaying soaking up the sun.
My card for today is sadly not for a new baby just been born, i just picked a stamp out the drawer without looking what it was and that was my challenge to then make a card, but I now have a baby card if anyone needs one!
I so love this stamp it is so cute and yes obviously an elzybell as you can probably tell!
I have paper pieced the entire stamp, i had originally coloured in the baby but the colour just didn't stand out enough on the Kraft so obviously need to invest in a better quality flesh coloured pencil.
I will be entering my card into the following challenges
our creative corner - beautiful baby
cute card thursday - embellish it
