Friday the 13th EEEEKKKK

Well how has your day been?
I am not usually superstitious but today well!!!
So far the cat has been sick on my Very Pale cream bedroom carpet..grrr
I walked all the way to the post office and realised when I got there that I didn't have the parcel I went to post ..DOH!
My printer has decided it is time to retire..blummin thing
and now my woodware leaf punch has broken..I need it to complete my nieces wedding stationery...but that's another GRRRR story!! lol
Hope your day has been better lol

Anyway enough waffle from me and on to some cards..yes really I made 2 cards. About blinkin time I hear you cry lol

My first one is made with this super cute Rocky Robin image from
digi stamp boutique

He is coloured with prisma colour pencils and glamour dusted
I haven't a clue were the paper is from. I know it's a download and probably free knowing my cheapskate ways lol
I punched a few snowflakes out of the same white card and stuck them randomly all over the base card because it was looking a little bare. Even for my clean and simple ways.

The second is one of Ruth's lovely images over at A Passion For Stamps
This little chap looks rather like my nephew Anthony
so was just perfect for his Bday card

Again I have coloured the image with prisma colour pencils
Printed his name onto DP then cut out and mounted onto 3d foam
The greeting was printed directly onto the card blank
It's Ruth's birthday on the 24th as she is celebrating by offering some fabulous candy of five digi's on her blog..pop over HERE and enter

I hope you like my latest offerings
Off now to scour the net for a new woodware grass ounch ..grrr (if you ever here me say the word wedding stationery again..slap me lol)

I glad that I'm not the only one that has days like that. I love the way you printed his name on DSP and mounted on foam. Great idea!

Fab cards terry; love the one for Anthony. Has been a weird day for me too; my printer wouldn't register that I'd put a new ink cartridge in, I couldn't get a dialling tone on the upstairs phone and my camera taking blurry photos. Roll on tomorrow! xx

Noreen said...

Both cards look wonderful. Hope good luck soon comes your way again xx

Your robins are adorable (previous post too) and I love your clean and simple cards - they never look simple and when I try to mimic your design, mine just look like I didn't try very hard. Your card for Anthony is fab. Great image cleverly used and your colour work throughout is stunning! Hope things are picking up for you! Warmest wishes, Lesley

Heather said...

Sometimes a day is just like that! At least you didn't spot a mouse scurrying around your house leading to a day full of frantic cleaning!

Anyway, love the cards. The card for your nephew is amazing! I want to have a go at that, looks so effective. Thank you for the inspiration & amazing creativity. Thanks, Heather:)
