Snowmen and Dogs


I hope you are all staying well, in these difficult times. I do apologise in advance, if I have made any spelling mistakes, only at the moment I'm working on my son's computer, as our's broke 2 months ago and I have had to use the Ipad !!, which is a pain, when it comes to adding watermarks to photos !!

As today is the 25th June, it means Maureen has a new challenge over at Rudolph Days Christmas Challenge  and it gives you all a good excuse to make a Christmas card or two, before the silly season starts.

The first image is : Penny Black - 'Patchy The Snowman /1996'
The inside image is : Penny Black - 'Snow Delight / 3536H / 2006'
Papers : Doodlebug - 'Frosty Friends'
Dies : Circular one, round image : Memory Box - 'Frostyville Wreath / Style No: 98418'
The die across the top : Penny Black - 'Snow Drops / 51-086 / 2014'
The sentiment : Joanna Sheen - 'Bravo Set Small / SD452'
All dies are covered in glamour dust

A couple of people have asked me, how i made the above card, well here is the back of it, to help you ;

This one was done as part of a Challenge, that I've been doing with 3 other lovely crafty friends and it was a sketch (I don't have that MFT die, so I used Stitched Modern Rectangle Stax by MFT) :

The image and sentiment is : MFT - 'Deck The Howls'
The papers : Bo Bunny - 'Snowfall Collection'
The snowflake die in the middle : Memory Box - 'New Castle Snowflake'#

Father's Day


I hope you are all keeping well and that you have managed to meet up with some of your family, unfortunately we haven't been able to, as they live in West Yorkshire and we are in Sussex, which is a trifle frustrating, when all my neighbours have had family round

Anyway today is Father's Day in the UK and here are the cards I made for Alan (the Wallace and Gromit one) and his Dad.

This is the Challenge I was set by my lovely Copic / crafty friends, I chose Blue, Dry Embossing, Male

Image, Sentiment and Paper : Papercraft Essentials magazine 
Embossing Die : Crafts Too - 'Bone and Paw Print'

Another crafty Challenge from my lovely friends, was to use up my scraps !! and whilst having a nose round blog land, I noticed the lovely Di had done this : Pixies Crafty Workshop, Challenge 378, and she was kind enough to add a link, so I followed it and made the above 

I'm sorry about the colour combination, but it's Alan's Dads favourite Rugby League teams colours (Leeds Rhinos)

Image / Word : Papermania - 'Typography Clear Stamp - Dad'
Paper : Penny Black - 'Madison'

Di has asked me to enter her Challenge : - Challenge No : 380 (sorry for long link, only I can't seem to work out on new system how to link it, after it's been posted !! )

Stay safe and well my crafty friends and for looking at my cards, if you would like to leave a comment, it would be much appreciated, luv Sam x
