Goal!

Hello Crafters

Well thank goodness someone turned the oven down, think it must have been a fellow crafters prayer (The Cobweborium Emporium) that did it – thank you muchly Cobs!

I have yet again been exceptionally busy, I know how a dog that chases his tail feels now, except I not only catch it, I overtake it! I had a busy day picking up my son’s first car, and taking it over to him, and then in the afternoon, I was busy baking Cappuccino Cupcakes and then flying over to my youngest sons for his house warming barbecue, so we had a lovely family day, bit windy but better than being burnt to a crisp!

Today I’ve been busy baking bread rolls, making cards, housework and I will shortly be off to finish the ironing before making my lunch for work. I really am getting toooooo busy to work!

Anyway a quick share of my son’s birthday card, which he opened today, so I know I’m safe to show you!

Items Used:

  • 15 x 15cm Base Card
  • Lily of the Valley – Football Trio Stamp
  • Creative – Stars Dies
  • Cheery Lyn – Son Die
  • Spectrum Noir Pens

My son is an avid football supporter, and he supports my team Tottenham Hotspur, I was born a mile away from the football ground, but never quite made it to actually watch a match there!

Well I hope you all have a great week and can’t wait to see your crafty makes!

Hugs

Gorjuss Birthday Girl

Hello Crafters

Oh my feels like the summer of ’76 all over again, what a bloomin’ scorcher! Don’t know where to put myself and it is still darn hot at 7.30pm and I got to do the ironing, but I am sure that Poldark will help me get through it….

Today was Mr Kim’s daughters birthday so I made a little card with a die that my ‘bestest craft buddy’ bought me, and I have only just had the chance to play. It was one of the Gorjuss Girls called appropriately ‘The Little Friend’ and I must admit I struggle with cards like this, so it took a while to reach the end. I knew I wanted the central figure but was flummoxed as to what to put behind. Well see what you think anyway…..

These dies come with sheets of paper so you can use it right out the packet. I did watch a video from you tube before I assembled her and glad I did as it gave a few good tips. As she is put together in layers, I coloured her face and arms with Spectrum Noir as the base was white, and this video mentioned colouring the edges around her hair and skin so you cannot see the layers, and it was a great tip, looks much better when assembled.

Items Used:

Ok can’t put it off any longer, got to go do that ironing pile, sure it’s got bigger while I’ve been sat here……

Have a lovely week, and to all those who recently joined me, thank you so much for visiting, I appreciate everyone of you, and hope you gain inspiration from my ramblings with a lot of smiles.

Hugs

Mexican Skull Card

Hello Crafters

Well it truly has been a busy week, one of which I am glad to forget but, I have had a few hours where I got lost in creativity to lift my mood and I loved the results, and I am so glad to be able to share this one with you today.

Mr Kim’s daughter-in-law has her birthday today, and hopefully she has received this card by now as she loves Mexican Skulls and I saw the die whilst I was shopping in The Range and couldn’t resist! However I did need a good reason to purchase those stitched flowers and I think this is as good a reason as any!

What is a Mexican Skull?

Calavera (Spanish) – The term is most often applied to decorative or edible skulls made (usually by hand) from either sugar (called Alfeñiques) or clay which are used in the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) and the Roman Catholic holiday All Souls’ Day

Items Used:

I was thinking about this for days before I made it, and I woke up with this imagine for the card, and it flew together.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, and please remember your sun screen, it looks like it will be a scorcher 🙂

Hugs
