polka dots

oh the weekend has flown by much to fast, why cant we have 4 day weekends every week?
i love the weekends when i get to spend time with the family.

i did get some crafting in yesterday though and i made this polka dot card.
the image is my cute sassy cheryl one again

the papers are gorgeous double sided ones and came free with this months Cardmaking and papercraft magazine.

MS punch and ebay bargain roses add the finishing touch.

the sentiment is from whimsey stamps.

i will enter this card into the challenge over at sassy cheryl's blog.

i really must think about a male 21st card now, my mind has gone blank. hmmm ok its always blank!

thanks for stopping by

i hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
i've had a crafty day and made a couple of cards and a calendar page.
i also found time to finish a good book so i need to find another one tomorrow.

here is my calendar

the cute digi is from sassy cheryl's
i've fallen in love with these gorgeous images.

i've added some real shells and used a GoKreate die set to cut the letters.

Also today i made my first dresser card

I'm not sure about this one. i think its just a bit too plain but im not sure what to add, any idea's welcome.

i've used a mini topper from liliofthevalley. they are small but perfect for this card.

thank you for stopping by.
Before you leave, please a take a moment to check out my 'items for sale' page. i've added a few more bits today and will be having a sort out this week.

Happy Birthday Billbo

Its my son's birthday tomorrow. (happy birthday Billbo, love you xx) I wasn't sure what sort of card to make for him. fast cars?....he definiately likes those, football?....he definiately likes that, beer?......lets not even go there lol so i suppose he's easy really but i didnt go for any of these. His new hobby is fishing. i think this has more to do with spending time with his brother and the beer cooler than the fish.
                                                                  so here is his card

I've used a hanglar image and coloured it using copics

                                                        and of course it is an easel card.

                                                  i thought the little fimo fish worked well

 i made the sad little worm and hook myself, just freehand drawing and some glossy accents, very simple.

thanks for visiting my blog and for any comments which are always appreciated.
thank you.
