40th Birthday Card

Well good afternoon to you all and another week has just flown past, far tooo quick and always seems there`s just not enough hours in the day.
Mack the dog is now back to his normal scatty self and i`ve also started, again! on the new allotment, so i`ve been pretty busy with clearing the weeds, digging over and sowing some seeds etc.
This card was for my hubbys 40th, didn`t quite turn out how I wanted it to look, but hubby had a chuckle and was pleased with it. The image is from bugaboo stamps and I coloured it in using my promarkers and used k&Co papers that were at the bottom of my stash box.
Catch you all later, Val xxx

Boys birthday card

Good morning everyone and hope you are enjoying the sun, although a bit chilly this morning on the school run. Well i`ve managed to do my first card since afew weeks ago and loved doing this for a little boys` 8th birthday. He`s a big WestHam fan, so I coloured in the little fellas outfit in their colours, although it looks pink in the picture, it`s not. I scouted around for a digi image and come across the footballer from bugaboo stamps, which was just what I wanted.

This card i`m putting forward for the lexis creations challenge of 3 papers, 2 embellishments and 1 image.

Papers: BG and K&Co

Digi image: Bugaboo stamps and coloured using promarkers

Embellishments: Football buttons from my stash

Sentiment: Whimsy sentiments

Sorry, I haven`t been posting lately

Good afternoon all!
So sorry I haven`t been around for so long and posted, as things have got a bit hectic lately and with the easter break as well. With a few illnesses (not serious, thank goodness) going around and the poor dog having to have a new knee cap, bless him! (try keeping an 18 month old collie quite is a task)I`m hoping (fingers crossed) I will be back at blogging.
I haven`t made any new cards lately, so will be back later in the next day or two with the start of some new makes.

I hope you all had a great Easter and are keeping well, with the sun finally showing it`s face.
Ta ta for now Val xxx
