Double trouble

Hi Gorgeous Peeps,

Yup back again, shocking I know ;p.  Two days running for blogging woo hoo!  Todays' post is about this gorgeous sketch from Retro Sketches and two cards.

I made the top card for the challenge and then when I was finished I noticed how similar it was to the bottom card that I had made on Friday at a friend's place.  How weird is that?  I brought the Gorjuss stamp on Thursday on my way home from the movies.  I think she's so sweet and I am enjoying colouring her in with my copics.  I've even been practicing my black hair colouring.  I think it's getting better.  I decided to go with the yellows/blues on the top card, colours I normally wouldn't use.

Have a great day & happy crafting

Blast off birthday

Hi Gorgeous Peeps,

I'm back again to share a quick card that I had made this morning using this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I love sketches they are so much fun to play with.

I'm using up a Kaisercraft 6.5 x 6.5 inch pad called Blast off.  I actually made this with some scraps from the pack.  It involved a little bit of fussy cutting and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set called Boys Will Be Boys.  The "Alien" is popped dotted up just for a bit of fun.  
Well the natives aka my girls are getting restless so had better go do Mum Stuff I guess ;p.  Btw this is my second post for the day.  

Just a few cards

Hello my gorgeous peeps,

I'm back after a busy week of recovering from a cold and doing "Mum Stuff".  I have been card making as well - so don't feel to sorry for me.  I have found a place in Nambour that will sell my cards for me (as well as some bags I made awhile back).  So have been busy making cards to sell.  Here's hoping they do well.  I also received an order for 12 cards from a friend yesterday.  So I will be busy over the weekend.  I promised my girls that we'd go "Fathers' Day" shopping this morning and then I'd make them a card each to give to Doug.  Plus this afternoon we're going on a playdate to a friend of Bill's.  I haven't told her yet.  Or I wouldn't get any peace.   Plus somewhere in there the dog needs a walk.

So here a few of the cards I've made to sell.  I'm hoping they do well, but won't be disappointed if they don't sell.  At this stage of my life I'm just happy to be card making.  A lot of these cards were based on sketches from some of my favourite challenge blogs.  See the left side bar to check out these fun sites.  

Well peeps it's time to get going for the day.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and to all of those celebrating Fathers' Day tomorrow have a great day.
