*** Cutie ***

 Good morning,

Hope it was a good weekend for you.  
It was hubby's birthday Sunday so visits from the family were a real treat.  
With Father's Day next Sunday he is sure to be just a little spoilt but so well deserved.
 He really is the best!

*** For the Boys at Fab'n'Funky ***

 

Hi folks,

Thunderstorms as I schedule this post.  No complaints though because we really need the rain.

It's time for a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #527

where the theme is "For the Boys"

For my card I've gone back to a much loved style that is not very trendy but still one I like.
and I know you are probably thinking I've lost the plot putting a ribbon on a masculine card.  
Well.. it is supposed to represent a bowtie as this card is going to a very dapper fellow.

 

The papers are from an old collection, number buttons are Tim Holtz. Sentiment die is a Sue Wilson.

I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.

I've coloured with Copics a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil.

*** Something different **

 Hello everyone,

I hope you are well and enjoying the weekend.

I'm here today to tell you it's time for a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin

where we are challenging you to use something not usually seen on your cards. This was a perfect time for me to use some of the unusual items I tend to save.  This little flag was originally perched on a delicious tower of individual sized bundt cakes that I received for my birthday in February and I thought it was too cute to trash.

I've coloured with Copics a digital stamp called Aurora Pandemic from TheEastWind. The sentiment has been stamped with versamark, white embossing powder added and heat embossed, cut using an MFT die.   This card is for one of my granddaughters.

***Couldn't help it**

 Hello folks,

Are you ready for the weekend?   
Can't say that I am as all days run together now.  
We are in a stay-at-home mandate again...sure hope this helps bring the numbers down. 

Today's card is one I created because the image made me smile. 
 As most of us are in "Spring cleaning" mode I thought this snarky little gal 
has come up with all the answers.  Pretty cas design, coloured with Copics.
