Quirky Crafts Challenge 9

Cazzy has set the challenge this time, and I think it will make you think a bit. Her Challenge is "A Right Royal Affair". Visit the challenge blog here to get all the details and see what the rest of the team have come up with.

This is my offering
We were given a choice of digital stamps from our two sponsors, Paper Pretties and Limited Runs. My Frog Prince came from Limited Runs and the darling little Bugle Bear from Paper Pretties. I hope you like my offering, don't forget to visit the challenge blog regularly to see what entries we have had and of course to vote for your favorite.

Been a bit busy......

...sorry! Had a rush of family birthdays etc etc. Now the day has passed I can share with you the card I made for my Father in Law's birthday...well I say card, it is actually a 3D Frame and picture. When my in-laws were more mobile they liked to take a trip to the shore and sit and watch the boats etc. With this in mind I thought a sailing dingy might be appreciated, and I am please to say he loved it! What do you think?

Don't forget to come back for the Quirky Crafts Challenge launch on Sunday....here's a sneeky peak at my offering:-

Quirky Crafts Challenge

It's time for the launch of the next challenge over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. Before I show you my contribution this week, I just want to say my own personal thank you to those who entered the challenge last week. It was my first turn at setting the challenge, and I was convinced no one would bother to enter. So thanks to all those who did, and I was especially pleased to see the comments from people who had never tried and easel card before and are now hooked!
On to this week. This challenge is set by Caro, details can be found on the challenge blog. The theme is Easter, but with sparkle and glitter and it must contain one punched shape. Here is mine:-

As crafters we are always making things for others, and as it was my birthday this week I decided this time it was going to be for me......how selfish is that?? So I have a lovely bar of bubbly Galaxy here decorated up for Easter......not sure if will last that long mind you, but still! My bunny is a digital stamp from Digital Delights By Louby Loo he is coloured with promarkers and his ears and feet are a glitter gel pen. My flowers are punched from yellow glitter card and the easter eggs in the basket are punched and then glittered. Then of course there are my glitter bands down the edges....enough glitter Caro???

Dan's Birthday

We all know that male cards can often cause us to tear our hair out....but when it is your Son's 16th birthday...it's about as bad as it gets.   I was struggling this year. I have done the computer/music/playstation/x-box/ favorite computer game/ football/ golf options, and really was at a loss this year. Then I came up with this
Sorry it is a bit of a shaky picture, didn't notice until I uploaded. Anyway, when he got it there was a £20 note in the coin pocket, to add to his present, and he seemed happy enough with it. That's that problem over for another year!
