Blogging Buddies

Friday, 22 July 2011


Morning everyone, thanks for stopping by.  Well schools out, six lonnnng weeks ahead before the start of the new school term!  Today I'm working til 3pm (scheduled post) and already Emily's complaining!!!  She wanted a lie in but unfortunately had to get up with me at 05.30hrs in order for me to drop her and Ethan off at my friends house and still enable me to get to work on time!!!  So she stropped and whined about me ALWAYS being at work (I only work 2 and a half blumming days)!!!   Anyway, all sorted now - I hope my patience lasts til September lol!!  

Enough of getting that off me chest and down to business lol. We have a fabby challenge set by moi over at Totally Papercrafts Challenge.  One of my favourite themes........


Yes, we want all things masculine, for the little, and large boys in your life!  

Here's my little effort,

 Our sponsor for this challenge is Karen from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

I've used "Tumble Time" from their "Boy oh Boy" bundle available HERE.
 As well as Karen's wonderful digital image sets her store also stocks more than £16,000 of craft products. Karen is offering our lucky winner TWO fabulous digital bundles of their choice.
A new collection of images is due to be released very soon so keep your eye on their site so as not to miss out!!!!!

I've coloured with promarker and used BG papers and my trusty nesties, all of which can be purchased from Karen's store. 

 I would also like to welcome a new DT girlie ,,, Jeni aka Flip-Flop Creations :-) If you haven't visited her blog then you are in for a treat !! Please pop over to say 'Helo' and give her a warm welcome :-)

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges.....

Cupcake  Crafts - Wishing on a Star
Everybody Art - Dots
Cute Card Thursday - For His Eyes Only
PaperCutz - Anything Goes

Please check out the awesome makes this week from my lovely DT buddies HERE.  I really hope you can join in the fun with us and can't wait to see what you come up with!

TTFN and have a great weekend.
