Keeping it CAS!

Gotta love CAS cards when you haven't got a lot of time (& for me that is most of the time lately lol) & this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge is Clean and Simple (+ a sentiment) & we are sponsored by 2 Cute Ink & I used this cute Balloon Birdie digital stamp which I coloured with ProMarkers.  I found my tool that corrugates card & used that on some Kraft card.  The background is done with chalk & using a die cut cloud as a stencil  I finished of with a Lili of the Valley stamped sentiment & some gems.  I'm sure you can all fit in time to make a CAS card so I really hope you can join us ;o)

Simon Says - Keep It Clean & Simple
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Things With Wings
Color Me Creative - Birthdays

It's Friday!!!!

Hooray it's Friday, just gotta last til 5.00 & weekend starts :o)  Friday also means a new challenge at Jellypark Friends which this time is "One for the Boys".  I used this fab image called Football Rugby Supporter & coloured him with ProMarkers.  The papers & embellishments are from Papermania's Portobello Road (apart from the felt heart) & I finished with a computer generated sentiment.  I haven't done much crafting lately cos we've had our 3 grandchildren staying & how lovely it was to spend time with them :o) & my mojo seems to have gone walkabout now but hopefully it will find it's way home soon...

The challenges:
The Paper Shelter - For the Boys
Penny's - One for the Boys
Dream Valley - Say It With Words
Come and Get It - Where the Boys Are

New Found Love...Mini Albums (**V**) (warning: lots of photos)

Today is my turn to choose the theme for this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge & I chose "Vintage/Steampunk" & I had in my head I wanted to make something with an Alice in Wonderland feel.  I had a wonderfully illustrated book when I was little & it was my fav.  I saw THIS printable album online & fell in love with it.  It took me ages to make but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I added a few other images I bought on Etsy & added some ribbons, charms, ink & liquid embossing.  I would love to make for mini albums but I really don't have much free time at the moment :o( (I did make a toilet paper roll album for a swap which I will blog at a later date but I don't like it as much as this one).  I haven't shown all the photos (but there are still lots lol), I hope you get the idea :o)
