Krafty Guest Time…and a challenge too!

Julie (2)

Afternoon all! You all know by know how completely useless I am at sharing really fabulous news…..well I get to play along with the Krafty Girls again as a Krafty Guest for the Month of August…..Whoop Whoop! My excuse (and I’m sticking to it) is that I have been having too much Krafty fun to remember to share the news lol!

Anyhoo, back to the point of todays post and as it’s Saturday it means it’s time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and we have a nice easy theme of Happy Birthday. Here is my card using Julie and Make a Wish stamp sets:

Wryn Birthday Girl

Night all. Oh I’m tired as I’ve been packing all day ready for our holiday but I’m here! ….just……for Fabulous Friday again over at Tiddly Inks.

I’m sharing a (sort of) clean and simple birthday card made using the very cute and versatile Wryn Birthday Girl…..hmmmm I think she would look lovely coloured up in traditional Christmas colours.

Morning All. Just a quick post from me as I’m woken up with the sniffles and a bright pink eye, so I’m feeling a bit sorry for myself.

Anyhoo I’m having  quick coffee in peace while the Hubby and Children are out and I thought I would share this card that I have on the Gems of Inspiration blog this morning.

I’ve used School Boy Andy to make a Thank You card for my son’s teacher
