School Boy Andy

School Boy Andy (4)

Morning All. Just a quick post from me as I’m woken up with the sniffles and a bright pink eye, so I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself.

Anyhoo I’m having  quick coffee in peace while the Hubby and Children are out and I thought I would share this card that I have on the Gems of Inspiration blog this morning.

I’ve used School Boy Andy to make a Thank You card for my son’s teacher

Christmas Bells

Chistmas Bells (6)

Afternoon all! What a miserable day here in the UK. It’s so grey and raining too, almost put a jumper on so it must be cold as well.

Anyhoo, enough waffle it’s time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell’s World Challenge and our theme this time around is Christmas in July and I have used the super cute Christmas Bells…Here is my card:

Wryn Floating Along

Wryn Floating Along (7)

Morning All. I’m just getting ready to do the school run. I think some schools have already broken up for the summer holidays but my eldest has today and tomorrow left before we can relax a little and take a break from the routine.

Anyhoo, it’s time for Tiddly Tuesday over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and we have a new challenge for you.  Our theme for the next fortnight is Summer Song, so we want you to pick a summery tune and use it as inspiration for your card.

I went quite cheesy and picked Summer Holiday by Cliff Richard. My card is definitely something I would love to be doing on holiday but I don’t think it will be warm enough where we are heading in a couple of weeks……North Wales!!

Wryn Floating Along (10)

I have used one of Christy’s newer images and this is Wryn Floating Along. Anyone who knows me knows I love cute characters and Wryn is one of my all time faves. I think this Wryn may just top the list.

Inspired by Miss Alyce over at Kit & Clowder I have been trying to colour up some little background scenes for my digis. There were already some artist drawn lines for the waves which I extended and I’m pretty pleased with the result.
