A Day Out

Another weekend approaching, please let it be cooler.  I worry about everything and everyone with this heat.  My garden is dying, people are not taking enough precautions when they are out, if I see one more person burnt to pieces I will shake them.

Enough moaning from me, here is my latest DT card for the new challenge over at Friday Sketch Challenge, would love to see you joining in.  Thank you for all those who joined in with our last challenge, the cards were beautiful.  There are so many talented people out there and it is lovely to see your work.

For this card I used the following:

Image from a set given in a magazine by Gillian Flint
Coloured with Promarkers (would be lost without these)
Green card from stash
Papers from Making Memories Simply Fabulous Collection
Butterfly die Cheery Lynn Designs - Mini Dimensional butterflies
Memory Box leaves and Small posie

After a few busy weeks arguing with a certain DIY shop over my Grandson's birthday present a wooden playhouse - it finally arrived and has taken a couple of weeks painting and putting up.  The saga of getting this playhouse could be made into a book.

This is the card I make for my Grandson, he is mad about Toy Story, Buzz in particular.  I found this free colouring page on a website and I have printed some out for him to colour and couldn't resist making a one off card as I hadn't seen any Toy Story stamps.

For this card I used the following:

Papers from stash
Spellbinder star and rectangle dies
Embellishment 2 came from cake making set of numbers

He had his last day at Mother and Toddler group (in our case Nanny and Toddler Group).  Although I must say there are equal amounts of Mums and Nans in our group.   I that it would be nice for him to give them a little gift - I finally decided on an individually wrapped cookie and two fancy teabags - I made some boxes for them to go in.  It was a bit of a rush as I didn't realise until a couple of days before that this was going to be the last week before the summer break.  I would have liked to be more creative in the decoration of the boxes but as it was I was up until 1.45am the night before the last group meeting.  There are about 6 ladies that come in but did make a couple of spares in case I missed someone.

It was also my best friend's birthday so made her the following card.

For this card I used the following:

Image from Butterfly Kisses called Faraway
Coloured with Promarkers
Spellbinder banner dies and rectangle die
Papers from stash
Woodware sentiment stamp
