Karen's Father's Day card
Two fab cards that work perfectly for men
Good Friday Morning Ladies,
Well I am almost too afraid to say this but I was a little too hot yesterday, it was a glorious day, our neighbours were out sunbathing and the others were in their pool.
I was getting a little frustrated as I was here on my own and the Lamb seemed a little unsettled and kept "baaing" which wouldn't have worried me last week as it's not very loud and she doesn't do it that often, sadly though the lady at the end of our garden called Paul over to say that she had had a Representative from Defence Housing at her door on Monday morning asking if she knew anything about a lamb as they had had a 'noise complaint' last weekend. Bless her she told them that she didn't know what they were talking about and the woman went on her way. So now I'm a little paranoid about every noise she makes. Why are people so grumpy? The lady at the end of the garden said that she loved seeing and hearing the lamb, watching him hop and skip about is hilarious. I guess there's always someone waiting to bring clouds to a sunny day !! Matt is going to take this little lamb to stay with 'Pascal' the Black lamb locally, the lady there is happy to continue his two feeds a day, as she is feeding Pascal twice a day anyway. She is still too small to join the rest of the flock as she can still get under the gate. Milo (cat) will miss watching her bound about the garden and he will also miss trying to get into the sack of 'Lamblac'
(Powdered milk), we have caught him a couple of times with just his bum and back legs sticking out of the top of the sack!!
I thought it was about time we upgraded our old step that we use as a 'Soapbox' to
The real thing, so here it is ready to use, who will be first I wonder? Remember to do a risk assessment before you use it though ladies, maybe good on to the back of a chair while you mount and dismount !!! 😉😂😂
Now onto today's fantastic cards........
Karen's card is just amazing, completely her own design, here is Karen's description.....
I have a few Serif kits (most of which were free) and created the cocktail glass with basic shapes in blue and made them quite transparent. The grass from a freebie was placed over the top and I "erased" the bits that were overhanging the edges. The flag, again, from basis shapes and the ice cube, golf balls, was in another Serif kit. It does need a bit more tweaking like, placing the grass better taking them forward or back etc. But I am quite pleased with the result and it's a bit different for a "golfie" !
You are a Serif Genius Karen, thank you so much for sharing your card.XXX
Michele's cards are both funny and fabulous, perfect for men of ladies to be honest but just as they are shouts 'Man' card to me. The Scrabble Tiles were part of a kit a few years back from "HunkyDory ' on Create and Craft. I think that these were the only part of the kit that I used (I bought the same kit), I bet atleast 1 of you ladies has too !!
As ALWAYS with Wasn't "Michele" card, every element is perfect, the little black mats you have made for the letters look perfect, you have aligned them perfectly too, I love the sentiments that you have written to match the age of the card, very well thought out. Thank you so much Michele for sharing your cards with us XXX
It is always great to get a lift inspiration for those "pesky Man' cards, so thanks again. Ladies, if any of you have other cards that you would like to share as well as your Challenge cards, I am always happy to share them.
If any of you want to share your pet photos, I would love to see them today, so that I can share them tomorrow, if that's too soon I can leave it until next week.
It's going to be another warm day, so please have a slow day today, let's all follow Tracy's idea and relax in the garden with a lovely cool drink!
Maria sweetheart, I hope you had a better night last night and are feeling slightly better as you don't want to spend your birthday feeling poorly! sending you big 'bamse' hugs XXX😘
Love and hugs to you all,
