Well, it is a cold wet day here today so what better way to spend it than tucked away in my craft room. After playing with two cards I have only managed to make the one...will have to go back to the other one tomorrow. For this card I have played along with the team at CAS(E) this sketch! and the sketch for this week CTS#112. I really like this DP I had in my stash so after choosing to use it my card evolved from there! Thanks for taking a peek.

Yeah! Another creative Saturday afternoon....today I had intended to make some cards and play along at a couple of blog challenges....I got a little side tracked! It is has been in the back of mind that I needed to get started on my C and D tags for our challenge organised by our crafty friend Robyn. Well, I am happy to say these tags are no longer on my mind but sitting on my desk beside me! My C theme is Clocks...I did struggle a little with this tag but I am happy with the way it turned out....
I thought I would keep the momentum going and play with my D theme tag, and this one came together nice and easy...D for dance and dress...

Well I have managed to sneak in a little more time at my craft desk again today so have made another male card to add to my stash. This time I have played along again with the Tuesday Morning Sketches team and their latest sketch #287. I had to improvise with the shape as the circle dies I have just weren't big enough and I actually never intended to colour the image on this card but it just wasn't doing it for me so I sponged it with some bisque ink and some distressed ink as well and now I'm okay with it. Thanks for taking a peek and I hope the week ahead treats you kindly.

Just the one quick card for me today, on a cold, wet, dreary day here in Tasmania! For this card I have played along with the CAS(E) this Sketch! team and their sketch for this week CTS#110. This time around I have made a male birthday card as I know I have a few male birthdays coming up throughout the year. Nice and easy today...stamped the image and then just sponged 2 different distress inks over the image using an oval fiskars template to guide my sponged area, then finished by just stamping the sentiment directly onto the card. Thanks for taking a peek.

I am back today to post another card I started yesterday, which still needed some tweaking this morning. For this card I have played along again with the team at Tuesday Morning Sketches and sketch #286. My card took shape around the DP that I chose from my stash....and yes, I know, I have gone with the black and white again but.....I have made this card for a scrapbooking friend who has an upcoming birthday this month (thanks Robyn for the reminder) and this DP reminds me of some of the papers I have seen her using when our group of crafting friends used to get together. I hope she likes this card...I secretly do, lol. Thanks for taking a peek.

Well, happily I am back at my stamping desk again this afternoon and once again I am playing along with the team over at CAS(E) this Sketch! This week's sketch CTS#109 is by Sam and it was just so clean and simple that I had to play along. I have made this card for a former work colleague of mine who has an upcoming birthday this month. Like myself she likes black and white...that is actually the only colours I have ever seen her in...so I hope she likes this card with a splash of red! Thanks for taking a peek.
