Boy oh Boy!

Afternoon my lovelies :)
This card is for my gorgeous hubby,
who celebrates his birthday next week.
At present he is deployed
 and I miss him with all my heart...
and so does the ironing pile!!!

Anyway a friend sent me the digi image
and I coloured him in to look like hubbies
beloved greyhound Toby....
Have no idea what the papers are as I never
use black and white so really had to
hunt for them but actually enjoyed
stepping out of my comfort zone.

Am putting this into Charisma Cardz challenge blog
which is asking for a male card.

Happy crafting :)

Talk about distressed!

Hello peeps!
For once this none blogging lark has not been down to my
laziness....ahem...but today is the first day I've been able
to post photos!
Don't ya just love technology!

Anyway I've made this card for no other reason than
to, hopefully, make another crafty friend smile :)
Love these stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps.
Papers ~ no idea! From stash.

Happy crafting! :)

A distressed 'Waltzing mouse'......

Hello peeps...I'm back!!
And you have the lovely girls over at Waltzingmouse Stamps to blame!
The oh so lovely Sandie offered to send me some stamped images of the gorgeous WMS set
 'Rescue Remedies'....but instead her and Claire (owner of WMS) got together and sent me the whole
 stamp set...including the additions set!
To say I was slightly overwhelmed with their generosity is an understatement.
Girlie's....I know I've said it already...but thank you muchly :)

Anyway I obviously couldn't wait to use the stamps and paired them up with some
 Basic Grey papers...and stamped, distressed, ripped, tore, folded
 and got mucky much to my little hearts content!

I really hope everyone is well and I can't wait to catch up with you all...mmmmmwah!x
