Father dear father

Here are some Father's Day cards that I am making to be sold my the children's music group "Mainly Music" at my church, prior to returning to work I used to lead the group and had so much fun doing it. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would do ANYTHING remotely musical. The group is as popular as ever and I am glad I can contribute in small way even though I have been long gone.

Annabelle Stamps

Annabelle Stamps is an Australian stamp company. They run challenges and a community that  I have recently joined and am about to start collecting their stamps.  They are about to launch a new release VERY soon and I for one am really keen to see it.
Why not hop on over there and sign up for a challenge, check out the stamps and meet the loveliest stamping community on the blog! Guaranteed you will be glad you did!

Say it in Pink and Green

After making the card I realised that I could enter this into Annabelle Stamps  say it in Pink and Green.
So here is my contribution to the challenge, these colours are just so perfect together aren't they?

Currently from the scrap box we have....

Still on my crusade to use up my scraps, I made these cards. I cannot believe what I was finding in those boxes, one I haven't even looked in! I can only wonder what lies in there.... It is fun though, I have a little game I play: "scrap lucky dip". I put my hand in the box blindly and pull out a handful of scraps. What ever comes out I have to use up in that card making session. I do have some rules, after pondering a few ideas, I am allowed to have another scratch around in the scrap box to find co-ordinating papers etc. I am also allowed to use new embellishments and stamps from what I already have.

Boy Card

These card titles are getting more basic and obvious huh?  Boy cards are always a little more of a challenge - well ones for older boys 11 and up and I hear this opinion being sighed all around card blogs everywhere. This card is for my son's friend who actually is a BMX championship rider - he will be 12 and I think he will be pretty happy with it.
