Late again!!

Hi Folks, well it has taken me a whole week to make this little card and by the time I get around to blogging it, the challenges that I was going to enter it into have closed!!! Just not enough hours in the day!! Hopefully within the next week, I will have found out if I can "retire" or not, so I will be able to craft and blog until my hearts content, that's after I have caught up with 25 years worth of housework of course!!! So fingers crossed for me as I shall be gutted if I don't get selected. This little card is really not me at all, but I must say I really enjoyed making it and the image was a joy to colour. I even managed to mask Tilda and it was pure luck that she is balancing on the edge of that barrell, lol. Looks a bit lop sided but I think we all would if we were sat on an anchor!!! Anyway the sketch I have used is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday , I may be in time for My Time to Craft which was Xtra image but definitely not in time for ABC which was X marks the spot - a Pirate Theme.

Images are Magnolia Pirate Tilda and Barrel, High Hopes Pirates Birthday and Ships Wheel.

Take care and enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts!!

Happy Father's Day

Hi folks, just had to prove to Jenny that I don't always make my cards the day before or on the day that it is needed!! This one is ready to go!! Life is still hectic and I am still extremely tired, hope the tablets kick in soon or I shall be asleep at my desk by 9am!! Anyway I really enjoyed making this card, didn't think I liked Teddy Bo but have changed my mind. This image is just perfect and my Father in Law will think this is highly amusing with DAD upside down as he wouldn't expect anything more from me!!! My own DAD passed away when I was 3 years old so I don't tend to "do" Fathers Day in a big way, just quietly. So I am going to enter this into a few challenges
