Toot Toot!

Well hello there. Sorry I'm late with my post, was waiting for the post to go live over at 


Unfortunately Rebekah has so much on at the moment that she's taken the really difficult decision to close down the blog.  This challenge will be the last one ever and as it's the last we're hoping that there will be lots of fantastic entries as it's an Anything Goes Challenge.  The prize for this one will be a surprise but I'm sure it will be well worth winning...so don't hesitate to get those creations linked up!  
Before I show you my card I just want to say thank you to Rebekah and all the ladies over at SFTW.  This was my first ever DT position and I've had such fun while we've been running.  The ladies have all been lovely, we've had some laughs and hopefully along the way helped each other out in other ways.  I'm sure I'll see you all around blogland so I'm not going to say it's a goodbye, just a see you later!

My card today is using another LOTV stamp called Toot Toot.  They had a special offer on mens stamps just the other week....and who am I to say no!  lol.  I've a few male birthdays coming up so they are going to be sooo handy.  Details as ever are below the image.

Hi, Karate!

Well it's a long time since I've posted more than one card in a week, but had this one ready to go and as LOTV have an offer on at the moment (3 for 2 on boys/mens stamps and art pads) I thought I'd share this one with you.  I've ordered 6 more mens stamps today but this is one I've had for a while.  I have an older brother who's a black belt in one of the martial arts (don't ask me which one lol) I thought this was well suited for his birthday this year. It's a really fun stamp to colour and I'm really pleased with the results.

DT Card For Crafts Galore Encore - June Challenge - Use A Stamp Or Digi

Well hello there!  Who would have thought it would be the 1st of June already.  The weather's been a bit undecided this week.  Went for some plants for hanging baskets last Monday expecting to get them into baskets on Tuesday but we had horrible wet rain for two days!  Managed to get them done Thursday night though so now need some nice sunshine to help them flower!  

Had a busy day today, decided to do some baking.  I've done plain scones, cheese scones, biscotti, chocolate brownies, cherry and date loaf, sausage rolls and a bacon and egg flan.  Really enjoyed myself and meant we had a lovely selection for tea time.  Had my card for this months challenge over at CRAFTS GALORE ENCORE  ready early for a change, so no rushing today!  Hoping it will be nice tomorrow so I can get caught up on some housework though - washing to do and windows to clean.  Hope you all have a busy but fun weekend.
The challenge this month is sponsored by 

They allowed our team some digi's to work with but as I'd had first choice for one of the other challenges I sat back for this one.  It worked out well though as I won a stamp just the other week and picked the one on my card.  She arrived in plenty of time to get her coloured up :)
