Happy Birthday Robert!

Long weekend here thanks to the Queens Birthday and I have made a card for

I have made a card for my husband Roberts 42nd birthday in a few weeks and knowing how he loves to play golf and how I love the teddy bo images this all came together quite well.
For this card I have used the super cute teddy bo trying to play golf, (much like my husband) and colored him with copics. I have used a golf ball paper called "name of the game" by scrappin sports and I don't know what the other paper is. The ribbon and golf balls are from my stash. I added a small chipboard happy birthday and colored them with gelly roller pens to add some sparkle. I cut around the image and put him up on foam.

Hope you are enjoying your public holiday if you are lucky enough to have it as we are!

I have used my purple ribbon for the card and this is my neglected stash that does not get used enough!
I have used the Lil pinkette August stamp from tickled pink stamps and used copics and distressed ink around the edge of the circle. The outside of the circle is my fiskars boarder punch that I have cut up and stuck around the circle. The sentiment is on a verve die. I have used a selection of purple papers from my stash and not sure what they are called. I also used some white and purple shimmer papers.

This is the card I have made for the paper sundaes Vintage or Shabby chic. When I made this card I think that I had all my stash out and spread over the table area trying to decide on what to put on the card. I used papers from the cappella paper pad and the image is bildmalarna stamp "I'm your angel". I used copics to colour her in and used a nellies die to cut the edging and a whiff of joy metal die "heart banner". I got the ticket as a freebie and used a doily that I sponged pink. I used the pearls and lace from my stash. 
I am also entering it into Ribbon & lace.
Hope you have a great night.

Oh a new Christmas challenge!

I just love Christmas and was excited when I found this new challenge that requires you to follow the sketch at and this is the card that I am entering.
I got this stamp last year from Lily of the valley and think he is so cute. I have coloured him with my copics and added sparkle fluff to the hat and pom pom. I have cut out the images with spellbinders labels eleven and also used this for the sentiment. I added a snow flake from my stash.. I sponged some distressed ink in peeled paint around the edge of the papers. I hope everyone can get along and look at this new challenge site and stock up on cards for Christmas early!
Hope you have a great weekend!
