Less is More Week 186 Sketch

The challenge at Less is More is a sketch.  I always like the sketch challenges, it makes it so much  easier.  I've used Stampin Up Blooming with Kindness for the flowers, and have used Elegant Eggplant and Lovely Lilac Stampin Spots (thanks Michele).  The sentiment is a Papermania anniversary stamp.

Charisma Cardz Challenge #18 - Wedding Anniversary

My friend has just celebrated her silver wedding anniversary. I can't believe that she has been married for 25 years. Where has the time gone.
I got the idea for this card from Pinterest.  I love this site, I can spend hours and hours on it. For the card I've used Stampin Up Petite Petals stamp set.  I have heat embossed each flower with silver and then added them to a circle.  I also heat embossed the sentiment.  The sentiment is a Papermania set called Anniversary Sentiments.
Happy Anniversary Michele & Tim x

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - 25

Love the sketch at this weeks Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  My friends daughter is getting married next weekend and I thought the sketch was perfect for the card I needed to make, but I have changed it slightly and added a heart instead of a circle, so I don't know whether it will be accepted or not.  The colour scheme for the wedding invites, favours etc is cream and grey, so I thought I'd add grey on the card (what a copycat!!!).  The image I've used is Stamping Bella - Uptown couple Brett & Brenda get married.  The hearts are a Marianne Creatable die.  Can't remember what the papers are called.  I've used a heart embossing folder on the large heart.

Birthday for a Boy

Our friends little boy is celebrating his 2nd birthday today. Happy Birthday Connor x I don't know where the time has gone.
The challenge at Mo's Challenge Blog is "Birthday for a Boy" - challenge #233.  I chose this little cutie called Ben. The papers are again LOTV called Bear Necessities.  I've got loads of different paper pads but I seem to go back all the time to LOTV's.  Which reminds me that I fancy buying a few more ;).

I love the new stamps LOTV brought out a few months ago.  The one I've used for this card is called Annabel Upside Down.  The papers are also LOTV called Bonnets & Bowties.  The sentiment is a Stampin Up stamp.  The challenge at Sketch N Stash was to chose a sketch.  I chose Sketch 59.  I'm also entering this card into Charisma Cardz challenge #15 which is Anything Goes, and Cute Card Thursday Challenge 329 which is Pretty Papers.

Show chickens

Today we went to see a friends show chickens.  I've never seen this breed of chicken before but they are beautiful. They look like they've got massive big afros (lol).  These chickens are definitely not for eating.

This one is called a Black Poland

This one was having a good dust bath

This one looked like it was having a very bad day,but it should look like this. I'll never complain next time I have a bad hair day lol!!!

Sketch Saturday #315

Every time I need to make a birthday card I always seem to leave it until the last minute.  I was so relieved that the sketch for this weeks Sketch Saturday was perfect for what I needed to create this card.  The papers are Lillibet - A Tale of Friendship, the image is a digi from A Day for Daisies called Pearls in my Hair and the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set called Express Yourself.
