Blog posts like London buses.......

None for ages... then 3 in one day!! lol!! I made this card for Mark's nephew's birthday. I found the idea for this style of card (a stand-up card) online- but unfortunately I can't remember where (so apologies to whoever's idea this was, and thank you!) I adapted a Magnolia image (he normally carries champagne) with a Papermania Clare Curd clear stamp of beer.... much more to his taste!! lol!!

Used more Basic grey paper here, and some rather wonderful Martha Stewart punches. Hope you like the card... thanks for looking. x

More cards....

Time, as always, flies... and several days ago, our eldest, Ethan, celebrated his 11th birthday. He loves police cars and fire engines... so I made this card for my Mum to give him.
This one's from me and his Dad: Ethan loves cars too... and it HAD to be a green one!! lol!! The image is by Elzybells, and the cardstock is part of the Cosmo Cricket Cogsmo range.

The final card I made for Ethan was from his brother. I used another Elzybells stamped image, coloured with Promarkers. The cardstock is part of the Scenic Route Metropolis range... part of a very old Scrummy Stash kit!
Unfortunately, as I've been poorly, we weren't able to go out for Ethan's birthday, but his Dad took him to the Lego shop to spend his birthday money (which was rapidly burning a hole in his pocket!) and he opted for a chinese takeaway, which we all enjoyed together.

A light at the end of the tunnel....

I've been a bit poorly again, and, as ever, crafting has been my sanity saver.... and when I've felt able to, I've made cards. Today is my niece, Natalie's, birthday. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAT!) I made this from me and the fellas, using a Magnolia image (coloured with promarkers). The patterned paper is from the Wisteria collection by Basic Grey.
I made this card for Natalie from my Mum. I used my Art Institue glitters, which, up until now, had been sadly underused, and the papers are again from the Basic Grey, Wisteria collection.
