The card we love to hate!!

Good morning all

Well whatever you're doing today I can bet it's not much different from yesterday - or tomorrow or even this time next week!!  This stay at home business ( this being the official day 3 but in reality has been going on for a week or two) isn't so bad if you stick to a routine. 

 I'm taking the attitude that it's nice to not have to hurry doing anything, as we can't do anything else I may as well just make the best of it - of course there are sooo many negatives in all of this but what's the point of focusing on that side, I am forever the optimist and I'm hoping this will carry us through : ) - this too will pass.

So lots of time for crafts - for me that I'm spending time clearing out and tidying my craft room- just a little bit at a time paper crafting - and Knitting.

Its our lovely Buffy's turn to host this weeks challenge at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

 and she has chosen the theme


Myself I Dont mind a masculine make (!)
I know  an awful lot of people hate it
I always take the attitude of basically plain and simple, mainly primary or muted colours and it nearly always fits the bill.  I made this card for a good friend's birthday

the front

the inside

This is what I did....
6 x6 inch card
Papers are an old LOTV paper pad - te cover is missing but it's called birthday something!!
Happy birthday die - Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions
Star die - an old memory box die
the stamps are from a set from MFT

Hope you'll join in with our challenge this week, see you there
and stay safe, take care, stay home, make the most of this quiet time because we'll all be joining in with real life again before we know it.

Black and white with a hint of Pink!

Good Morning all

I'm a bit late with my DT card for 

I was down to only 100 toilet rolls - so I had to rush out to panic buy!!

I promise I am joking and on a serious note I hope everyone is fit and well and coping with all this media saturation of coronavirus.  It's so difficult to keep a sensible head on when it's all the news if full of.  I really don't know what to worry about first !!

Our challenge this week has been chosen by the lovely Pat

the theme is 

Black and White with a hint of Pink

I decided to get going with making Mother's Day cards as it'll be here before we know it 

This is what I did....

I had an assortment of lovely black and white papers, i know they're mainly first addition and one from the LOTV wedding themed paper pad,
 I just decided to go a bit geometrc and used some rounded sqare dies - I think from MME but not sure
The flower dies are from Crafters Companion Country Garden Collection
Mothers Day die is a sue Wilson from Creative Expressions
It's a 7 x7 inch card matted and layered up with pink and black card and some 3d glue gel for dimention

I wasn't really sure where I was gong when I started this to be honest, I just used the papers for inspiration, but I really liked how it turned out!  

Hope you'll join in with us this week at Fab 'n'Funky
