Give "Yo Jimi" a great big Dudeville Hollow welcome!
He's a superstar & he knows it!
Although he's maybe not as young as he thinks he is! lol
I put Jimi on a square card base made in black cardstock.
The DP's I have used were part of a Mystery Parcel I bought last week
from Sarah Wright  so I have no idea where they are from. If I had to guess,
I'd say they are possibly Papermania

Jimi  Rocks!
I coloured him up with a mixture of Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
Next I fussy cut him out & adhered to some black cardstock!
I added a few little star charms, from my stash, to embellish.

I made the sentiment in my graphics programme.

I decorated the inside too but I didn't get a pic of it.
Now it's time to hop on!
From here you want to hop on over to visit Nancy!
I know she has something amazing for you to see!

I've decided to add my sentiment as a Freebie if you'd like it!

A Card In A Hurry

Good Morning bloggers!
I thought I'd share this quick card that I made!
I had to make it super speedy!

It was made using the Hunky Dory Kit from C&C

I added some mirror card, ribbon, buttons & a butterfly!
Sorry the pics are wonky, I had to do them super speedy too!
Thanks for looking!

Get Out Of Jail Free!

Good morning lovely bloggers!
I can't tell you how happy I am that it's Sunday!
We're having some work done in the house & we're all topsy turvy!
To top it all, our carpet fitter caught us on the hop & decided to come a week 
earlier than we were expecting him to!
Great to get it done quicker than we expected but a lot of work 
in a short space of time!
Today, we're over the worst & most rooms are heading back to the right side of  normal!
Anyhoo, over at The Crafty Pad,
this weeks challenge theme has been chosen 
by the lovely Joanie
 Her theme is #180 Interactive
we want to see your interactive cards, sliders, waterfalls, wipers, 
shakers anything at all that moves!

My crafty stash has been packed in boxes & moved around so much that
 I have no idea at all of what is where!
Hence, my Get Out Of Jail Free card!
 I managed to pull this together with just the aid of a printer, 
some card-stock, some paper, DST, a little bit of ribbon & not much time at all!

 I've used one of Debbie's get you out of a jam cards.
All I have done is printed onto some card-stock, cut it out & added some 
DST & ribbon! Simples!

The instructions are clear & easy to follow!
Here is the first part extended!

Both parts extended!

The insert!
If you need a card in a hurry, believe me, these are your best friends!
All the work has already been done for you!
This would also be great for those of you starting out who want to make your 
own cards but not spend too much!
This card also comes with an envelope but I just didn't have the time or the 
energy to get that one sorted!
I also apologise for the slightly squiffy photos!

I will most likely embellish this card a little more with glitter etc!
(when I find it that is! lol)

Thanks for stopping by!
