Quick card for Sunday

Muuuuuuuuuum! you know what comes next don't you? Usually a "can you ......?"

Well today's was "Muuuuuum can you make a card for Josh?"

"yes," I reply "when do you need it for?"

"4 o'clock please" !!!!!!!!!! what happened to a little notice - it's all I ask?????

So very quickly I came up with this very simple card. As Josh is an Arsenal fan (well I suppose someone has to hahaha) I went for the red and white theme. I found this space invaders stamp that I bought for 99p in Papermill when their shop closed down, and thought it would fit the bill.

I might make a stock of these in various colours as just in case Kristian asks again with an hour's notice hahaha.

Not blogged in a while ....

..... ooops! I hope you haven't thought I had dropped off the planet? haha just not been able to blog for a while.

The last time I blogged it was just after Bonfire Night and here is a photo of me and daughter just to show you it was really cold. Look at my red nose - Rudolf eat your heart out hahaha. Can't show you a photo of our spectacular fireworks as they weren't - spectacular that is hahaha.It has also been ages since the last time I blogged my 365 Calendar and here are my very, very late October pages. Sorry Kate et al. Others have managed to keep up to date but I haven't got my November pages ready yet either sssssh. If you want to see up to date entries check out Kate's blog.
Thanks for stopping by.

Remember, remember the 5th November ....

.... gunpowder, treason and plot???? No not from me hahaha ...... I want to show you two more Christmas cards and a birthday card I made with one of my new favourite stamps "Laugh" by Paperbag Studios.

I stamped the image onto cream card and then cut it out and stuck it onto this patterned paper that I received in a swap at the Bubbly Funk retreat in May. I just love the expression on that woman's face - so full of fun and happiness.

The next two cards were made for the November 25th Card Challenge on Bubbly Funk. November's challenge was set by Di the brilliant designer of Tando Creative chipboard - she is a wonderfully talented woman. Di's challenge was to use shapes not normally used to create Christmas images mmmmm ...... I had to think for a while before I came up with these

two robin red breasts and
a funky christmas decoration. These were made from waste from lettering cut using the Craft Robo. The backing paper on the robin card is Basic Grey. The black card and glitter "bauble" needs a little something and I might add some text to the bottom I'll have to decide.

Anyway thanks for stopping by and I hope your Bonfire Weekend is going well and that you are all safe. x
