Modern Sugar BLVD


I made this card this afternoon using 1 off my new images that I bought from Modern Sugar BLVD I just love this one. I am going to enter it in their challenge modern sugar blvd this week.

The paper is from stamping-up and I used my star and music notes sizzix dies, I used my Fiskars border punch and coloured the image in with my promarkers, and I used my stickles glue to add some sparkle.

1 card 2 challenges, sketch saturday & crafty cardmaker's

This is the card I'm entering for Sketch Saturday's challenge and also Crafty Cardmaker's challenge.
I actually made it for my daughter, The inside has a pocket in it so we could put money into it for my daughter who passed her 8 GSE's she was sitting, To say that we were very proud of her is an under statement. We had promised her a large sum of money as an incentive to pass her exam's and it worked a treat, We will have to start saving again for when she passes her Higher's next year

No Printer ink

I bought Jack & Ginger from Mo's Digital Pencil and I have discovered that I have no ink left in my printer (sob Sob) just my bloody luck, I am going to have to beg Hubby to buy me more ink and it ain't cheap and he knows we have to go out at the weekend to buy the kids school clothes which certainly isn't cheap, If he says no I will withhold all favours in the bedroom from him till he gives in lol.

It finally decided to work, when I came back from walking the dog I tried again and one card linked no bother, but the second one refused to link, I thought right try one more time and if it doesn't work I would only do challenges from now on that use Mr Linky, but it did work so I'm happy now. I can go to my bed and sleep now as that would have bothered me all night.

Blogger playing up I think

I can't seem to leave a link back to my entries for 2 challanges it's driving me crazy, to begin with it wouldn't let me upload 1 of my cards, then when I try to post my link back to my card it keeps saying error page not found, If you hear someone screaming that will be me. I'm gonna throw my laptop out the window in a moment, right I'm taking the dog for a walk and I'll try again when I get back.

Summer Time

This is the card I made for the challange over at Beecrafty, The theme was summer.
I used a free image from Dustin Pike and coloured it with promarkers. He has a lot of free images for downloading.
I also used free paper's I got from a magazine, The flower's were also free from a magazine as was the sentiment's so it's pretty much made up of freebies Lol.

No challanges for me this week

I don't Know if I will be doing any challanges this week, I had planned on entering a few but I received a call at 12:30am on the 24th from my brother to say that our dad had just died, shocked dosn't even come close to how I felt when he told me, after all my dad wasn't old he had just turned 62 on monday so i'm not in the mood to do cards I might give it a try in a few days see if it takes my mind off things for a few hours and secondly the hospital phoned 6 hours before to say that my operation is on this coming Friday, it had to get cancelled last month due to me having a chesty cold and it might have to get cancelled again depending on when the funeral is, but I will just have to take each day as it comes. I was feeling terrible today not only with grief but when I got of the phone from my brother I turned to the vodka bottle just meaning to have 1 for shock but lets just say it turned into more than 1 and at 3:30am I decided that I neede more ciggies and went off on a 6 mile all round walk to the petrol station how I got there and back in my sozzled state is beyond me but some how I managed and in record breaking time as well LOL fancy that I walk quicker when Im drunk. Well that was my late Thursday early Friday morning news here's hoping that Saturday is better.

Just Magnolia challange

This is my card for the Just Magnolia challange, I wasn't too sure about entering after seeing all the fantastic cards by everybody else, I must admit I was feeling kind off intimidated by them all but I thought what the heck you have to be in it to win it, so this is my humble effort.
