Birthday card for a Grandaughter

Hi everyone, hope you are all OK.

I have been playing with my Promarkers and Flexmarkes over the last week or so, I now have quite a few that I have got to put into cards.
This is one of them, the image is from Daisy and Friends, a cd rom that I have just bought from Joanna Sheen. I Love it
All the images are so cute, it's a job to know which I prefer, so I think quite a few will appear on here shortly.
I have been down my summerhouse working on cards all day today, no energy for anything else. When we get to the end of a cycle of Chemo for my dear hubby, we are both so exhausted we flop around on the Saturday, it takes so much time out of our week going back and forwards to the hospital. Still as long as it does him good I don't mind.
Anyway so much rabbiting on I had better put the card on haha!!

Thanks for looking in
Take care

Fairy Tale

I have made this card of Tinkerbell . I coloured the image with my promarker pens.
I love the image as it has the other things from my favourite hobbies, i.e. Needle, Thimble and
Pin cushion.
I love sewing so thought this one appropriate.  I have glittered the wings with the adorable glamour dust, you will have to believe me as it doesn't show up very well in the photo.
I   used Spellbinders Grand Scallop dies to make the card and also all of the other backings.

I am going to enter this into      Contest  number 202 which is for Fairy tale images.

Thank you for looking in
Take care

Birthday card for a Grandson

Hi Everyone
This is a fun card I have made for one of my lovely Grandsons.   He is an avid Westham Football supporter, he is only going to be 6 next week and has always been footie mad. He knew all the words to their supporters song "I'm forever blowing bubbles" by the time he was 4 years old.

Note the haircut, his dad got it done for a treat when they went to see Westham play just recently.
I don't think Charlie's mum was too pleased, I thought it was brilliant. HaHa!!   :)

When I had a clear up recently in my craft stash I came across these Jigsaw puzzle sheets, I haven't used them for ages, so I expect I will now do lots of cards using them. You know how it goes, buy it, put it away and hey presto find it again LOL!!!
Take care all, Sue x

Farmer Duck School Bags

Hi again, yes twice in one day, whatever next haha!!

These are 2 bags I made for my daughters school, she works with the little ones and her favourite
story she tells them is Farmer Duck.  I have made the big sack for her to put all the words, masks and books in, and lots of other related items.  The smaller bag is for the children to take it in turns to take
a toy and other bits and pieces home for showing to their family.  I know this all sounds double dutch but honestly it does make sense when you see it all together.  :)

I used material to do the printing on that I use for quilt labels and then rummaged my stash, I found this animal print material left from a project and hey presto we have 2 bags.

She has just phoned me and the bags have proved really popular so it looks like I am going to do Elmar the elephant, and Gruffalo just for starters.  I don't mind really, I thoroughly enjoyed making them to be honest.
Hope you like them
Thanks for looking

Old Age is on it's Way

Hi Everyone
I have made this card for my dear husbands birthday. He is not a well man but still
has his sense of humour (I Hope!!).
He knows I love him and I am sure he will enjoy this card.
I got the digital image a long time ago and cannot remember where I downloaded it. I think
it is great fun. I wish I could remember where I got it, if anyone out there has a clue I would love
a link to the site.

I coloured it with my fab Promarkers and attached the flags with twine, (even that's given up haha :)

I am going to enter it into the contest by    Contest #200

I must post this now as time is running out for the contest
Take care everyone
