Would You Believe It - I Made A Card!!

Hello again.

First of all can I say hello to my new followers, thank you for stopping by.

Well as usual I kinda left this one to the last minute.  It's my wee dad's 89th birthday tomorrow and I just couldn't think what kind of card to make.  I get my crafty gene from my dad and I remember spending many an hour with him and a pile of art stuff having great fun and when I found this image on the Internet, that is exactly what it reminded me of.  I photoshopped the Teddies' noses to match the backing paper I picked (cheating a wee bit here) and added some red glitter to the paint brush.  I've never tried embossing a card blank before and I quite liked the way it turned out.  I embossed the image after I cut it out using my Nestie and an embossing tool (a tip from an MSE friend) and matted it onto blue card.  I'm not too happy with the ribbon cos it doesn't stick very well (I didn't have any glue dots - added to my every growing shopping list).

Anyhoo enough of the boring stuff, this is my wee dad's card - I hope he likes it (and you do too)

Thanks again for visiting.

Apologies and Cherries!

Hi guys,

I hope you haven't all deserted me.  To say life got in the way was an understatement - I didn't realise it had been soooooooo long since I posted anything.  Ooops.

OH and I have been decorating the house with a view to selling so it's been a bit manic (that and the fact that my craft stuff was deemed clutter and boxed and put away - got it back now. YAY!)

Now for the fun stuff - look what I've got....

I would like to say a big Thank You to Sue from Crafting With Sue for giving this to me.  I feel very honoured to say the least.

Here are the rules of this award....

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.  Thanks again Sue

2. Copy the award and put it on your blog. Tick.

3. List three things which you love about yourself.

          I have a nutty sense of humour that only my OH truly gets.
          I'm really tall and have very long legs
          I can draw (which I get from my dad - thanks pops)

4. Post a picture you love.

I know this is a bit of a strange one and it looks like some random picture of a bench in a park but it'll make sense in a minute.  The bench is in the park grounds of Stirling University, which is where Chris and I met and we sat on this bench and watched the sun come up, it was very romantic.  So exactly a year later Chris decided that we should take a day trip back to OUR bench except this time it was even more romantic because he proposed.  This picture was taken about 30 minutes later.  I could have showed you one of me with tears running down my face or him with a silly grin on his face (or heaven forbid one of us kissing) but I chose this one. 

5. Tag five people you wish to pass this award on to.

In no particular order I would like to pass this award onto:
