A quick play.....

A quick little play this week with some bits on my desk. Some old TLC papers again with stickers and a die-cut. Sorry for the poorly lit photos today, they were being taken at night.
 


Holly hobbie free stamps and papers, coloured with water colour pencils and a mix of greetings from Kaisercraft and Stampin' Up.



Lastly, another teen girl birthday card with no idea what she likes so this is how it ended up with guidance from son for colour and a music theme.


 
Thanks for dropping by and happy craftin' this weekend.

Birthday card run.....


Recent months have seen a few birthdays between my friends and kids friends so I have had to put a few last minute cards together.
 
 
Last weekend was a 70th birthday for a lovely lady who shocked me by the invite to her "70th". She still works full-time and dances several nights a week so I'm guessing that dance and keeping your mind active shows that it helps you to stay young looking. I could only hope I look that good when I get to 70. The Silhouette online store had this great ballroom couple silhouette that worked perfectly for her card.
 


Kerry at Crafty Cards and Cuts had a night time video class on Periscope one night to make cards with scraps so thought I would play along. I didn't get very far with my efforts but at least got a couple made.


Another birthday for a male dance friend so hoped that this would look more masculine with the design. He was very pleased with the result and surprised that someone would go to the effort of personalising a card for him.


Last but not least, a card for a teen girl who likes Avatar the last Air bender. Thanks to a free wall paper I was able to get the character image and just played with the background with stamps and ink. The greeting was an old rub-on in my stash which really worked nicely with the card.


Thanks again for dropping by............

Combat Card play......

Well the end of June saw the start of a new working routine for me after being out of work for a year I finally secured a casual job which has been keeping me busy for the last couple of months. It is great being back in the working scene but seriously impacting on my creative time.
 
I keep pulling out the scraps of old papers sets to play with which have either been freebies with magazines from years gone by that I have been holding onto the last of or old Topline Creations Papers and stickers that are still floating around in my stash. They still make good cards even if it is the last of the bits and pieces which encourages me to "think" a little bit more to get some use out of them.
 

 

 

 

 

 
 
All of these cards will go to Combat Cards.
