*** Father's Day / Masculine ***

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all doing well.

Happy Father's Day weekend.  
Hubby had a fall last weekend so will be sporting two black eyes for the big day 
but all is well.   No broken bones which we are so thankful for.  CTScan at emergency showed no damage...so again, very lucky.  Stitches out on Tuesday so I'm sure he will be back to playing snooker soon. It's been nice having him home during the day, my routine can wait. 

Today starts a new challenge at  

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where we would like to see some Masculine makes. 

It's a great place to show us your Father's Day  makes so join us if you can.

I've used slimline paper from Whimsy Stamps, stamped HBDay using an acrylic stamp from MFT in Black Memento Ink.  Ballons are acrylic stamps from MFT, coloured with Copics and then die cut.

*** Fairytales ****

Good morning all,

Happy Victoria Day long weekend for those of you who are celebrating.
Great spring weather here...sunshine with the occasional shower to keep everything green.
Busy weekend planned setting up the patio and it just might be warm enough to do some planting.

It's time for Wendy's team to show you some inspiration on the new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

with a theme of  Inspired by a Fairytale

I've created my card with a Cinderella theme using an old but much loved image by Sassy Cheryl.  This is the pre-coloured version that I have touched up with a little polychromos.   The stamp is from the "Balloon Bundle" at MFT Stamps. Striped paper is also from MFT.

Thank you for stopping by today. I do hope you can stop by the blog and see the amazing inspiration from my team mates.  You are sure to be impressed as they are all so very talented.

Hope you are having a good week

*** One for the Boys***

Good morning everyone,

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #548

where our lovely Buffy has chosen the theme "Masculine"

After clearing out a lot of my stash earlier this year I convinced myself I did not need any more craft goodies and held off for almost 3 months...but oh..when I saw these cute panda's at Whimsy I broke down.  I have used it here for a masculine card but can see many uses for this trio.  The paper is a very old Basic Grey boxer that I've been hoarding. Fingers shook on first cut into the 12x12 sheet.
