Teenagers Card

Spoiling you today :-), second  post today. I'm just showing off as I have spent time in my craft room the last couple of days. 

Card I have to show you today is based on a  card that I originally did at Clair's workshop about a 18 months ago. 

Using cardboard letters and numbers that I had in my stash, Triangle bits and round bits cut from card, carpet gripper tape added then all covered in silver plumbing tape. 
Embossing tool round the cardboard pieces to make the stand out and the rubbed with alcohol inks. Had a bit of disaster with the inks as I haven't used them in ages and I had a leakage and lost a couple of bottles, but luckily I had enough for what I wanted.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #362

It has gone very dark outside at the moment and I think it may begin to rain soon. I may have another afternoon in my craft room which would be nice.

The card I have to show you today is another of the male birthday cards I had to do. I followed the sketch over on Tuesday Morning Sketches

Here is the sketch.

Here is my card

For the card I used Hunkydory's Hobbies & Pastimes - Around the Track and How's That. Everything used on the card was from the pack apart from the gold mirri card and the card blank.

Thursday's Workshop Card....

....was all about the fish! Great workshop last week with Clair  Lots of fun. Bit of inking, stamping using a kit from Stampin Up that I wouldn't normally like but doing this card has put it on my wish list!
The background was inked, the sand was done using a die and inked. The fidhes were stamped out, coloured and then cut. 

Makes a great 'man' card.

Lovely Day At Drusillas

Today seems to be the last day of the summer here according to the weather forecast so we made the most of it and took my grandsons to Drusillas. If you follow my posts you will know that I used to take Leon there every week until he started school full time. This was the first time we have been in a couple of months and it was Ollie's first time. They both enjoyed it and were very good. Some friends whom we met there, were amazed at how Ollie can crawl so far, :-). They are both growing up so quickly.

I do have a card to show you. A quick one that was made using a Hunkydory kit. It is for my brother in law. I chose this image as we are all attending a family BBQ on Sunday at his place and he is doing the cooking.

Still Playing Catch up....

Right I have just returned from a lovely couple of days up near Tamworth at Thomasland with Leon. We were worried that he was getting too old for Thomas but he still loves him and got very excited when we told him that we were going. We had a bit of a nightmare journey up there Thursday afternoon/evening. SAT NAV said 3.5hrs, It took us just under 6 to get there. Leon was so good. Portable DVD's are such a godsend. I will post some pictures when I have them sorted. 

Now a catch up!! Last Sunday, my friend and I went to see Ton Jones at the Sussex Cricket Ground. The tickets were an early birthday pressie from my hubby. The show was FABULOUS!! Tom was amazing and has still got it. The voice is still as powerful as ever. He sung a lot of his old songs including my favourites Delilah and You Can Keep your Hat On. :-). We had great seats and the weather was beautiful.

A fab evening, fab show and fab company!!

Ceremony of the Keys

Where is this year going? Since hubby retired it seems the days/months are just zooming pass. Bit of catching up to do on my blog. 
Last Wednesday 13th  we went up to London to see the Ceremony of the Keys at The Tower of London. Due to the recent problems with the trains, we decided to go up by coach which was quite a experience. But at least we had no problems until we were due to come home. The coach should have left London Victoria at 11.30pm, it eventually left at 12.25am so we didn't actually get home until 2.30am. Luckily we didn't have to work. :-) 

This is the 3rd time we have attended the ceremony and if you every get the chance to attend then you must! A great bit of English history. Unfortunately we were not allowed to take photos of the actual ceremony but we did get a guide around the Tower by a Yeoman of the Guard.

I do have a card to show you also. This is one using a hunkydory kit especially for men. Just added some gold mirri card and the greeting is from Craftwork Cards.
