Another 60Th

It must be a sign of our increasing age. This time its Derek who has a friend at work with a 60th Birthday. he asked me to "knock one up" for him. I asked what he'd like on it and his reply was " I liked that one you did the other week, can you do one like that?"...well yes..what colour? "Blue please" So here it is ..not that much different from the first.

Layers up and using nesties to frame it.

Sketch Challenge can be found HERE

After viewing THIS post by the gorgeous Jo, i knew i NEEDED these papers. they are similar to the chatterbox papers and have a lovely texture. They are just right for embossing as you can see. I also like the fact that because of the smaller print , you can use them on cards or in mini books.
Hopefully back later with some more.

A Couple of quick cards

For one of the teachers at school,,It really was quick :) The longest bit was triple embossing the numbers.

This one was completely copied from HERE . Mine is no where near as good but i just love the idea :)
Hoping to be back later in the week with the Chicken soup challenge for this week.

Chicken Soup No 24

Loved using these colors for this weeks challenge, which can be found HERE . The chicken soup ladies have some great inspiration. Go Check it out.

New Stamps that i LOOOOOVE Papermania blossom tree HERE I bought mine from the range.

I looked for some quotes about getting older, some were great and really funny. I settled for the one above from HERE. My birthday seems to have come round much quicker this year!! - although its not actually till next week :D!

I have very bravely applied to join the Twisted sisters team but with over 160 applications, i am not expecting to hear back. It's only the second time i have applied to join a team so i guess i ought to try a bit more :)
Have a good weekend to make some lunch and then some cards.

A couple of cards

Dan went to an 18th Birthday last night..i forgot he was going so needed to make a card ..QUICK!
My Nephew (Below) was 14 on Wednesday . I thought the digi stamp looks just like him.

A few more of those mini calenders. I am very disappointed that I am still waiting for an order of charms from December to finish some of them off. I was making a few "twilight" themed ones....sigh.
In the middle of the chicken soup recipe for this week..i LOVE those colours ( link in side bar to their blog).

Still Waiting

For Charms and book rings/key chains to arrive in the post so i can finish these tiny calenders.
I have made 10 so far. They are 2 1/2 x 2 inches , so use up very little paper and card. I keep one on my desk at work ( mostly to sort out detention dates at school !)

I have been using up scraps of paper and stickers. I printed out a calender on A4 paper most are plain but i have made a couple with a"Twilight" theme and have some charms arriving soon to match.
As soon as i finish them, i'll photograph them.
Now i need to reinstate my "craft room " so i can do some scrap booking.
