Busy with mens cards as June see's my dads birthday as well as fathers day, so here's dad's birthday card, he and mum travel loads so thought a travel inspired card would be ideal, using 'Heartfelt Stickers'.... and its my entry into Cute Card Thursday - no designer papers!
A nice girlie pink card here, for my ex-sister in law, the image is one I received in a swap over on the Trimcraft forum, I love it and find the swaps a great way of getting a range of images to see which ones you would use a lot of... Using this one as my entry for the challenge on Papertake Weekly sketch challenge too...
A few cards to upload today - ones I've made over this week and just finishing off, adding greetings etc... so here is the first, a thank you card for Emma for the fabbie pens I won in her blog challenge, I've coloured this image using the new Copics and some of my pro-markers... i cant decide which I like best but love em all!!!

Hope you have all enjoyed the sunny weekend - I'm a summer time girl so its perfect for me, we enjoyed family BBQs and generally relaxed in the garden... here's a pic my youngest son Harry took of Rocco... we lost our old dog Bailey a few weeks back which was hard but she had been poorly so we knew it wouldnt be long... looks like Rocco enjoyed the sun too - really he was way to hot and didnt know what to do with himself.
Its my stepdaughter Hannah's 15th birthday next week - I love making girlie cards as you can go totally ott on embellisments and glitter! I cant take the credit for the design as I copied it from Caz over at 'aloadofoldblogocks' blogspot but it was just perfect for Hannah's birthday, and the digi image is a freebie - click here to bag it for yourself http://stamphappens.com/shop/images/maddiefeb.jpg

This weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is to make a card for Someone Special - so here's my entry, its for my friend Melody' who's birthday is on Monday, using digi images from DigiStamp Boutique, and K and Co papers... I loved these muted colours...
My first attempt at a word book - for Kian's baptism which is tomorrow (fingers crossed for more sunshine...?!), I printed the letters out on the PC and assembled the book using my Bind-it-All - it was fun to do and I'm pleased with how its turned out, and thanks go to a Trimmie member for the idea and tips on making it (saving me buying a special CD or wording templates!)
I did a workshop last Saturday over at A1 cards in Creaton (Northants) and here's my creation, a tissue box cover made from a template - using thick card they are quite sturday and of course decorated however you want... maybe more will be made for gifts later in the year!
