Slow & Steady.

Well, I don't know whats up with me this week - not really been bothered to do much - not like me especially when it is faffing with paper and colouring in, hmmm...wonder if its the weather???
Anyway, when I saw this freebie digi image - I knew it would be ideal for my f-i-l, it's just so suitable for a man football supporter rather than the cutie kiddy ones you can get:

I have coloured him with pro-markers.
Football paper from the Smirk range
and die cut Dad with my sizzix.

I would like to link this one to the pollycraft blog for a freebie to use next week - ooh am intrigued!!!

Now, for this one, there is a bit of pink overload, lol.

The image from Angela is coloured with promarkers.
The patterned paper is from MME freebie with this months Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.
Anitas Organza ribbon
Sentiment in stash
Flower & pearls are from stash
Pink backing card from The papermill

I would like to enter this into:Stamp Something: 1 Ribbon, 1 Paper & 1 Image
Pollycraft - bold & bright.

Lastly, after spotting a challenge on Rainmacs blog and finding a lovely santa image, I thought this might cheer me up - Christmas in July - is it too soon to start writing a list - lol.Sorry about the dodgy photo - I couldnt find the right position to stop a reflection.
The embossed christmas tree was kindly sent to me when I started card making last year from Craftygranny.
The image is a freebie digi - coloured with promarker and cut out and adhered to the tree with 3d sticky fixers.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Magical Crafts - Xmas in July
Ooh la la - Xmas in July
Fussy & Fancy - Xmas in July part 2
