Allsorts 96 For a special lady

Saturday again, how did that happen?? Don't know where the week has gone!! This week at Allsorts Debs would like to see cards, projects, gifts or anything for a special lady. Mothers day is in just a week so a perfect time to get ahead and make that special something for your mum or for any other special lady in your life.

I made this card for a friend of mine. We used to work together many moons ago and is retiring soon. She is soooo not a girlie gorl, she can't stand pink and flowers and butterflies and all those other pretty thin gs so I thought she would like this.

Please come and join us at Allsorts this week, we'd love to have ya :o)

WOW I managed to get some craft time!!

Don't ask me how but Alfie had a good sleep this afternoon so I made the most of it!! He's such a lovely wee boy and happy enough but if I sit at the table he knows that I am not paying attention to him so he acts up and turns into a wee devil LOL

this card is for one of our grand daughters who is going to be 10 on Monday. The image is a Penny Black stickeroo, can't remember who made the papers I've had them for ages and the packaging is gone. The flowers and brads and buttons etc are all from stash.


Little Claire's ~ Flowers

Penny Black Saturday Challenge ~ more than one fold

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge ~ patchwork background

Sketch Saturday ~ sketch

Charisma Cardz ~ Easel Cards

Lily's teacher and his wife had a baby boy over the weekend so Lily came home demanding a baby card!! Papers are from the same collection as above but as I said I've had them so long I can't remember who they are by.


Claudia and Co ~ Recipe (Stitching (real or faux) 2 patterned papers buttons a sentiment circles scallops)

Now wouldn't it be lovely if Alfie had a sleep like that every day :o)

Teenager time......scary lol

Yes we are looking for card/layout/gift or whatever for a teenager. *shudder* I really struggle with anything for teenagers, haha maybe its because its been so long since I was one lol.
As it is the first week of the month that means we are sponsored by the fabulous Digistamp Boutique and I picked Josh with not only a teenage card but a boy teenager LOL
Josh is coloured with the usual Promarkers, buttons are SU and the cardstocks are just scraps. The sentiment was printed on the pc.
I am entering this card into a few challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges ~ Anything but a square
We hope you will join us and show us your teenager inspired projects :o)

InStyle Stamps

Oh dear I am having a bit of a white rabbit moment with this card.....I'm late I'm late! Alfie has been in the wars a little this last 2 weeks. Last week he had a bad cough and cold that was waking him in the night and ended up as a chest infection so that was a 10 days of sleepless nights. The on Sunday evening I noticed he was covered in a rash. Turns out this is a reaction to his MMR (measles, mumps and ruebella) injection he had 2 weeks ago, it's called mini measles apparently. He is totally fine he just has a rash all over, thankfully its not contagious or anything.

Anyway back to my card for this months InStyle Stamps. The image is called Princess Clarrissa and isn't she just so cute? I love her and I used her to make a card for Lily's friend who turned 6 yesterday. A perfect image for any little princess in your life :o)

I am entering it into Truly Scrumptious' challenge of Swirls and Pearls and Friday Sketchers
