A blitz of blue.....

.......What with Father's day, my OH's birthday & my son's friend's my crafting has been mostly male orientated recently and very blue.

This one is for my OH's birthday today, Happy Birthday hun! Had fun playing with string and rather like the results. It adds some dimension to an otherwise flat card. The dogs nose & the candles are highlighted with Glossy Accents (not that it shows in the pic!)

Father's day card made using an image from
they have some fab images to play with. Used Dawny's sketch #16 from the Papertake challenge.

Another card for OH from the kids. Also made for the Housemouse challenge #41 Red, White & Blue, but I didn't get round to posting it in time :0(

One for my son's friend. A freebie decoupage image from
Text done on PC, numeral die cut with Cuttlebug Olivia

Still blue but not for a male this time. Found some fab ribbons in the Pound shop and really liked the blue/green set. 5 different ribbons for......yep £1! Could kick myself as I went back for some more today and its all gone. Oh well......

Another blue one for yet another challenge I missed the boat on. What am I like! This one was for the Christmas blog challenge #4 ~ A blue Christmas. Tried using my new Cosmic Shimmers with a spray bottle on the oval before stamping the image.
Hmmmmm some practice needed!
Looked a right mess so sponged over it with some blue chalk ink to hide it.
Note to self.....must be more organised when doing challenges in future!
