I'm lucky enough to have today off work as its my best friend Becca's Birthday tomorrow and I am meeting her later for a girlie afternoon.....a bit of lunch and some shopping are in order! So, this morning I decided to do some baking....no surpries there.....and make some cards. I haven't really had that much time to make cards recently, so I decided to get stuck in on some challenges.
First off I have a dinky little card for my two favourite weekend challenges.....Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and Allsorts....
I love making little cards, this one measures 4inches by 4 inches - so cute! The challenge over at SCSC is "clean and simple".....I think this fits the bill perfectly....a cute little image, a sentiment and a little colour. The Allsorts challenge is "Things with Wings", I hope they like my bee! Pop over to both blogs and check out all the gorgeous DT cards, be quick though because there will be new challenges tomorrow!
My second card is a masculine card to fit in with the challenge over at Simon Says Samp...which this week is either Father's Day or Masculine. After loosing my dad so recently I don't think I'll be making any father's day cards this year, so I opted for "masculine". I've also decided to enter this card in the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers which has a sports theme this week. This is the first time I've entered a challenge there, but I've practised with my promarkers for a couple of months now and decided to give it a go.....after all nothing ventured, nothing gained! The only thing I haven't used Promarkes to colour is my golfers face....I haven't got my skin tone pens yet and had to use a trusty pencil....I hope thats ok with the Promarker DT! Don't forget to pop over to both of these blogs, there are some gorgeous cards to be seen!
The white blob in the corner of the card is supposed to be a golf ball.....looking at it now I'm not so sure! And I hope you like the sentiment - I love play on words on cards, anything to make people smile!
One last thing I wanted to share with you today is a photo of my latest buy for the kitchen....I'm very sad, but these beautiful glass jars for my flour and sugar make me happy when I look in my baking cupboard! They are actually preserving jars, but hey I think they look fab anyway...they even have "home made" etched on them!
Thanks for popping by today, don't forget to pop back tomorrow when I'll tell you all about this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin!
