The country has gone....

Olympic crazy, I for one can't stop watching these Olympics, well I can't go anywhere as One I live on top of Olympic land the Traffic over here is mad, and Two my Poor car has been put of action for a few weeks now, and after having a dang in my Mum's car yesterday, I think I will give up the driving for the mo and just sit and enjoy the rest of the Olympics in comfort of my own seatee....

Now today I made a card using Create with Connie and Mary's challenge  HERE  this which is use Real Red, Saraha Sand and Black,  coupled with Mojo Monday's 253 Sketch this week HERE......


Now I am not sure I like the card I created, I love the colours, But I struggled somewhat with the Sketch, but then that's what  challenge should be all about, taking you out of your comfort zone..

I used the Stampin Up Delightful Dozen stamp set again, I kept it simple and as I wanted a card that was more male orientated than female, I substituted the Ribbon and bow for a strip of card stock and brads.  I used the Stampin Up Marvelous Markers again, so perfect for this type of stamp design.....

Thanks for popping by, Happy days!!

Delightful Dozen

Hello All are you enjoying the Olympics, It's kinda taken over our House here, never that much into sports, though I do endure the football for Paul's sake and the season is about to be upon us soon...

I noticed my last cards were the colours of Team GB how did that happen without me noticing it when making them...lol

Today's card is the card I made for My hubby Paul today is his birthday and I cased the front from a fab card I saw on the net, the watermark so small I can't read to give credit, the original card was made using bright colours, great for a lady but I wanted to use Regal's family  colours for Paul's...

I stepped it up a bit by 3Ding the Happy Birthday bit,  Used Brads instead of Rhinestones and stepped it up rather a lot inside using a new die from Sizzix for a Wow pop up bit, to which I popped some spondoolies (paper money) behind, it held it all quiet nicely...... I used Indigo Island, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Whisper White colour ways.

So the cards consists of two Sentiment stamp sets only The main from t image is from Delightful Dozen and inside is from For My Family.....    Love these two sets and it goes to show you don't have to have images to colour in or in fact any image on your card other than sentiments to get a Great effect!....
