Birthday Boys - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It is time to celebrate the menfolk in our lives over at Sweet Stampin' this week, as the theme for our challenge is Birthday boys!

Now I love making cards for menfolk, so I had a little fun with this awesome Paper Shelter image, and some papers from my first ever paper pack (yes, I still have some left!):

Isn't he a dapper fella?

Now there was a slight incident involving a black pen, the image's eye, my elbow and my youngest offspring, just as I had finished colouring the blasted thing! There was no way I felt like starting again from scratch, so I printed him out again and turned him into a decoupaged 3-D chap. Phew, problem solved, lol.

Over to you guys now, please do come and share your birthday boy makes with us! In the meantime, I'm taking my son out today to buy him a dress shirt for his prom. He already has his suit - a lovely charcoal - and soon he'll be off for the evening looking just as smart as this chap!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Teacher appreciation - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

It's teacher appreciation at Sweet Stampin'  this week!

This seemed a good excuse to break out a MilkCoffee digi and my Prima School Memories paper pad, to make this:

She was a lot of fun to play with!

I hope you'll all come play with us this week, and remember, if the theme doesn't grab you, you can enter an anything goes entry too. Just don't forget to stamp!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

May the 4th be with you - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

I know it's not my week over at Sweet Stampin', but I decided to take over join in with team Wends this week, as we're celebrating Star Wars day, and are looking for all things space themed!

I may have created a card or two or three for this one...

Doctor Who:

Star Trek:

And of course Star Wars:

I did also make a Firefly card, but completely forgot to take a picture before letting it fly to the other side of the world. D'oh!

So, that's my contribution this week... I hope you'll come and play with us, as I can't wait to see the entries this week!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

May challenge - Altered Eclectics

Morning all,

Time for our May challenge over at Altered Eclectics!

I decided to have a play with a wooden box my mum gave me, which once had some kind of cheese inside. I may not be much of a fan of cheese, but I really like these boxes!

I used some of my favourites here - crackle paste, Hessian and my TH Tattered Florals die. The leaves were originally white, but after some judicious application of Spray Oxides, they were soon a better colour to work with.

The flower in the middle is a Prima one which I won in a tombola in the LotV shop quite a few years ago now. A TH sentiment, Hessian ribbon and some trim to finish it off, and there you have it; one keepsake box, ready to be filled with treasures.

We hope you'll come and take a peek at what the team have prepared for you, and then do come and play along with us this month!

In the meantime, have an awesomesauce day!
