Giving myself a Tea Break!
Well it's been a typical Saturday so far for me today. Firstly dragging myself out of bed ( I have to admit I need a bit of encouragement to drag myself out of my bed on a Saturday morning!)
Anyway, once I got going I have been getting on with the usual tasks that a working mum does on a weekend......washing, cleaning and all that fun stuff! Usually I try to get everything done and then find I have run out of time to craft and blog, so I end up posting at about 11pm or something ridiculous! So today I have decided to give myself a tea break and post at 11ish in the morning instead!
There are lots of 'anything goes' type challenges out there this week and also a 'manly' one from Allsorts so I decided to go with the boys for today.
As you may know, my beloved printer gave up on me earlier this week, and I can't tell you how badly I am missing it. Everything I want to do craft wise, seems to involve my Printer somewhere along the line, since the majority of my papers are of the digital variety these days! So I have decided to venture out to PC world this afternoon and get myself a new printer......then comes the scary bit of trying to get it connected to my laptop, which is now a bit of a dinosaur, running on Windows Vista. Oh well, one step at a time as they say!
In the meantime, the card I am blogging today was made with digital images and papers from the fabulous Pretty Tough CD form Polkadoodles.......my staple source on inspiration for just about any boy between 5 and 21!!!
As you can see, my Skater boy is coloured with promarkers, but the skateboard and greeting are printed directly from the CD, pre-coloured.......a little bit of a cheat but I hope I have got away with it!
Here are all the challenges that I am going to enter today:
Crafters Companion - Favourite Colour combination.....I have loads of favourites but the blue and burgundy is probably my favourite for a boy card.
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Anything Goes - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
By the Cute and Girly - Twinkle Little Star
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Men Only
Make it Monday
Thanks for stopping by. Wishing you all a restful and crafty weekend!
