I've been a bit scarce again and will be for another 10 days at least.
I've been busy getting sorted for hols. 
How do I stop kids growing! I've had to kit them both out in new clothes. 
I've also managed some creating and have loads to share but I'm out of time.

Sweet Stampin' - Something Sweet

It's Team Fi's turn over on Sweet Stampin' and we want you to create Something Sweet.

This week you could win a prize from
and the Monthly prize from The Ribbon Girl

I had an idea for my card but while looking out the stamp came across this one and decided it deserved to be inked instead of lurking in the drawer.

The stamp is Lili of the Valley Mix it and Make it.
Coloured with Promarkers.

I think the paper was a magazine freebie but it's been in the stash for a while.
The little cupcake stamp and sentiment was from freebie set with a DoCraft mag.

At the start of the month it was my dear friend Susan's boys birthday.
I should have blogged this last week!

Here is the card I made for him tho the pics ain't great. Sorry.

Now whenever Scott is here playing with Sam they load up with swords, shields, guns and helmets  and head out into the garden to battle.
So when I saw this Simply Betty image called Miller and Little Dude I knew it was perfect

He's coloured with Promarkers and I made the little scene on a side step card to be like the garden.
Using a Marianne Design fence die and Dienamics grass die.

The inside was designed by Sam using Simply Bettys Christian and SpitFire
and the sentiments that came with them.
(It was very hard to let him do what he wanted and not design it all)

OMG at Kenny K Krafty Krew

Kenny K has a new release in need of names.
So there is a wee competition.

Now they just make me think of the Spice Girls so I'd say

1. Baby or Emma
2. Posh or Victoria
3. Ginger or Geri
4. Scary or Mel
5. Sporty or Melanie C 
It's unfortunate 2 had the same name.

What do you guys think?
If your name/names win you get the image/s.

Creative Craft Challenges - We love you Dad

Over at Creative Craft Challenges our new challenge is We love you Dad.
Our sponsor this time is the super Kenny K who has loads of images for male cards.

Image is Safari Guy and was kindly supplied by the ever fab Kenny K.
I thought he looked more like a General so I coloured him up with Promarkers as a soldier.

I computer generated the speech bubble and sentiment.
Stars and oval cut with Nesties.
Jute Ribbon, Kraft card and some paper out the scrap folder.

I'd like to enter him at

Sorry I've been a bit scarce, I promise that I have lots to show you and lots in the pipeline.

I have just had the weekend from hell, hence the title of this post.
It would take pages to tell you all about it but my Hubs and I got the train to York to collect my Dad's partners car. 
Delayed train, lost tickets, broken car, stolen rolls (they have 5 cats!!), 
expensive on the day tickets home on train- service suspended and a kaput Kindle.
Not sure who I offended but enough already!

Did have a lovely meal in a french resteraunt with Dad and Edith so not all a disaster.

Here is a card for you that follows the Disaster theme

Image is a LOTV stamp called Ooops!
Coloured with Promarkers

The paper is My Minds Eye - Bluebell
On Kraft card
Ribbon die is from Die-namics Blueprints set
Sentiment LOTV cut out with a Die-namics Sentiment Strips die
embellished with some cardcandy.

Sweet Stampin' - Fathers Day

Hi Peeps 

It's time to play again over at Sweet Stampin'
This week is Fathers Day sponsored by Cuddly Buddly.
Plus you get a chance at the monthly Ribbon Girl prize.

I came across the image I've used and it reminded me so much of my Dad I had to get it.

Funnily enough I had just finished this card when my Dad called to say he was coming for a visit.
This was a lovely surprise as he lives in York which isn't exactly pop over distance from Glasgow.
Unfortunately he was up for a funeral but I'm not complaining. Don't get to see nearly enough of him and the kids loved seeing him.

Here is a pic of Emma and her Papa taken this week.

Onto the card tho...

Coloured with promarkers.
The little un' could be me (mumbles) 40 odd years ago or my daughter a few years ago

I  echoed the image with the embossed flowers and the peach ribbon.
Computer generated the sentiment.
