Another Birthday Card With Attitude

Made a card for a friends little boy whose birthday it is today!
He's been a bit of a monkey with his antics lately so when I saw this image on Digi's With Attitude! the other day, I immediately thought of him! It made me laugh as on the same day I got this image I saw the card his mum had made for him. It too featured a monkey!!!
Don't know why I wanted to make a round card, it just seemed to fit the image! My first ever round easel card!
The backing paper has been in a file on my pc forever it's from some Jungle Safari Clip Art which I purchased at Sammy Murphy's Scrapbooking Mad, the site that got me into downloads way back when!!! Made a host of friends on the forum there too!
Anyway, again I digress!!! I coloured the image with my promarkers and then cut it out out with my nesties, on the Big shot Express, but when I embossed it the image slipped! (Still not found the best way to do this & all tuts are for Big Shot manual with different platforms. If anyone can advise I'd be delighted!) I think it looks quite good the way it is, double embossed on one side!
I printed out the greeting & coloured it with promarkers and went round the edges of the circle with the same pen.

My Floral Birthday Card & More Candy

Hi, just had to share with you the surprise I got at work today! There was a knock on the surgery door & the porter handed me a parcel with my name on!!!
I opened it, thinking it looked a bit odd for an NHS order & to my surprise I found this!

 It's a floral card with real live flowers! Beautiful is it not!
I've never heard of these before so it was a lovely surprise! I text Mum & Dad to say thanks but wish I hadn't said anything as Mum was upset that it didn't come on the right day! It was a stroke of luck that I was actually working in that perticular place today as I don't work there every Wednesday!!!
Anyhoo I'm delighted with it & will have it tomorrow morning!!! Think I'll put it in the fridge & surprise myself again tomorrow!!!!

As I'm in a good mood & got home to find the doormat strewn with envelopes, I have decided to add another small surprise to my Birthday Candy!!! I was going to post a pic, but I think I'll keep it a mystery for now at least!!!
Back in a while with another card!

Birthday Card With Attitude!

Had to make a card for a friend who's birthday is on the same day as mine! I have to say she's a good bit younger than I am but hey ho who says your friends have to be the same age!!!
Having discovered Digi's With Attitude! after I recieved the blog award from Carly, I'm smitten!

This little beauty was a freebie! I found her when I went over to spend my voucher! Yes folks it's true, the voucher is there if you follow the conditions! Anyhoo, I digress!!!!

Here is the card I made with the Cheerleader image!
Isn't she great? I coloured the image with Promarkers, matted & layered onto some papers that I've had forever in my stash my stash, one of which I punched the edge of.  I apologise for the picture quality but couldn't get the light right!!!

I added some ribbon and some paper roses.
Oooohhhh makes me feel like singing........
anyway, back to the point!!!
I printed the grreeting straight onto the card
and finished it off with an insert!


I would like to enter it for the Challenge #7 Sports Theme, on the Digi's with Attitude! Challenge Blog!
I would also like to add it to Challenge 79 on Passion for Promarkers

Christmas Card

Hi, thought I'd share an example of my overseas Christmas card for this year! I have made a variety of these using different colours to colour in the design & different backing papers to matt onto!
Basically I used a Just Inklined digi stamp, which I think I got as a freebie, from imag-e-nation. It's called Little Church in The Snow and I loved it the minute I saw it!

As my husband posts the overseas cards every year I have to keep the postage to a minimun! (Lol, he is originally from Aberdeen)
I like to keep my Christmas cards fairly simple any way, just as well eh!!!
To help achieve this I printed the greeting straight on to the front of the card & I printed the verse inside thus negating the need for an insert!
The image was coloured with promarkers & I think you can see I added  a bit of sparkle with my quickie glue pen & my Diamond Sparkles.

I have entered this card for the One Stitch at a Time Challenge Season/ Event  Winter/Christmas
I have also entered the Crafty Calender Challenge#14 no optional snowflakes but lots of snow!!!
Also the Gingerloft Challenge 6 The Great Outdoors I think this fits the bill!
As well as Scrappy Frog Merry Christmas Challenge
And Stacey's Stamping Stage Colour Challenge
