Super Dad - Craft Stash DT

Morning... Happy Monday... I can say for sure that I hurt already from yesterdays gym session with Lizy, but I need to battle through the pain and keep going.  Determined that I will be able to do at least 5 full press-ups easily by the end of August and I am struggling to do even half press-ups at the moment.

I have a card made for Craft Stash this morning for you using some very simple star dies.  You can find them here in the shop.. they are currently on offer for a bargain of £6.99!!

I love how I can mix the items from the shop with my own stash too.  Here I have used small memory box alpha and added some simple stitching.

Must rush today, it's going to be a busy week for sure!

Have a great Monday!

To A Good Friend

Morning.... I have been a really bad blogger for the last 3 months or so and at one point I seriously considered giving it up and just putting any creations onto Facebook and Instagram instead.... but as I came to type up that post a couple of weeks ago I realised I just couldn't do it, instead I took the rest of July off and I'm starting August with a clean slate and hopefully a few more posts that you have seen for a while.  I caught up on my DT work for Lili of the Valley and for Craft Stash and took the well needed pressure break from having to type up posts each day.  

I feel refreshed and a little less stressed about the lack of crafting I have managed and I hope you will come back to me to see what I have been creating... Warning they may not all be cards going forward.

So enough waffling, today I have a little card from the last release from Lili Of The Valley for you.  I love how cute this guy is.. and how fab does it look on the crumb cake card stock! 

I have also used paper from the Romance and Roses 8 x 8 pad and a really simple sentiment from Stampin Up Happy Birthday Everyone (A hostess set).

I'm off to the gym with Lizy this morning ... With being away I let my membership expire as I could not commit and it's been a while. I'm going looking a gym where I can justify just paying to go at weekend :-) ... and I may ache tomorrow ... I'll let Lizy practice her PT skills on me ... Hmmmm

Hope you all have a great Sunday!

Garden In Bloom

Morning LIMettes.. Thought I would take a peak at this weeks challenge over at Less Is More today as I was up early.  Happy to see it's an easy colour challenge and those colours are "Berry Shades".

I thought it was a perfect opportunity to use one of my new Stampin Up sets... Garden in Bloom. Here is what I came up with... the only decision.. is which way the card should stand!

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday, I'll be tidying my studio up as no matter how little crafting I do I make a lot of mess!!

Life's A Beach

Morning LIMettes.. remember me... I actually forgot what my house looked like over the last 2 months, never mind managed much crafting... My job has taken me pretty much across the work with trips to California and Singapore and after next weeks Italy trip it all calms down and I can have some time to myself.

Since I felt like doing a little card making last night whilst on Skype to Rachel, I thought I would check out today's Less Is More and make a quick card to show you.  This weeks theme is "Life's A Beach" .. so I thought this little stamp was perfect...

I've used the fabulous Wetlands set from Stampin Up and simply used Expresso Truffle memento onto Pool Party card stock.  Some signature stitching and it's clean and simple!

Hope you all have a fabulous Saturday.  I hope I get round to typing up some posts at some point with my LOTV cards...

Hello.. Remember Me!

Hello..  What do you all do when life just gets that little bit crazy? any time I do have to craft I'm just sitting there, zero mojo, wondering how I ever managed to make cards all the time.  I think the pressure of work and working away is getting to me a little.  Hoping after my Singapore trip next week it calms down and goes back to normal after a very crazy and unexpected 12 weeks of non stop travel.
I managed to sort out my photos on Friday of loads of cards and this one is using simple star dies from Craft Stash and is one of my DT cards for them..

Simply an aperture, filled with sequins...

Better get off for now, hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!

Dad, It's Your Day

Evening.. Sorry I have been a bit of a stranger.. I literally got back from Los Angeles early this evening after a week with work there and I'm back to Vienna Tuesday to Thursday this week.  It's all pretty crazy right now and I'm itching to do some crafting.

If you want to senak some of my travels, check out my instagram account by clicking on the below...

Anyhow, on to a card for today.. I used one of the fabulous boys images from a couple of years ago for this LOTV card.  I love his Odd Socks!!

Hope you all had a great Fathers Day... Hopefully I'll get some crafting done tomorrow as I have a day off.

See you then
