Butterflies, Flowers and all things garden.........................

Hi Everyone,
           I have a card for Stampotique this week Jackie Payne is our hostess and she is taking us on a "Butterflies, Flowers and all things Garden" adventure
Here is what Jackie says about this challenge:
"Now that summer is almost here, it's time to spend some time in the garden and enjoy the nature and flowers. Let's see your best Butterfly, flowers and all things Garden projects"

 Yes, well, it's flowers and butterflies and one has landed on Dog's head , snigger. Dog also has a very interesting coat, more sniggers. You see my problem is I don't have many small butterfly stamps so I have resorted to a rub on and some DP! For the line of the ground I have masked Jo Capper Sandon's floral stamp, repeating it 3 times.
I hope you haven't been washed away with all this rain, funny old weather here in the UK! 
Thank you for stopping by :D Gay xx

Man up!

Hello there lovely peeps, Over at Stampotique this week
Carol Fox is our hostess and she is challenging us to a manly challenge. "Man Up" is her challenge theme and here is what Carol says about this one:
"Journal page, card or mixed media, all is ok as long as it has a male image on it"
I made a card

Taking a line for a walk again, I stamped Eric first and then drew the lines up to and around him, crossing them to give the impression of waves. My lines aren't very even but not bad with a gammy hand LOL. I wanted to say 'A birthday Wave' but couldn't find a stamp that would fit or bend to follow the lines.
Hoping the sun will make an appearance sometime soon, fed up with being chilly :)
Thanks for dropping by, the link for the stamp is his name :D Hugs Gay x

Hi everybody, Today I have taken up the Stampotique challenge,
It's time for a fun new challenge and this Week Coby is our hostess and she is challenging us to a "Boo" theme, Here is what Coby says about this challenge
"Say Boo to little children and they will laugh.... use the word Boo in your projects this week to let us laugh."
I have made two cards this week 'cos I can LOL My first will be my entry though,

This is Newton and I love him  :) Certainly use him a lot!
And this is inside my card, it is fun!! Like a bird's beak it opens and closes to reveal two little tinkers having a giggle and trying to spook Topher! I used double sided paper so that the inside would have contrast.

 Closing the apperture by opening the card.

 This next card was made first but I wasn't happy with it and then below the inside of this one
 and opening up to close the apperture. I'm still not sure which one I prefer although I think I like the inside of this one and the front of the first, Hah!!
Thank you for joining me and having a look at my latest makes! I hope you're warmer than me because I'm sitting here shivering, the weekend should be better, fingers crossed :D Gay xx
