Good Evening....

... well am able to nip on here quickly before I start tea as hubby has offered to take Tom to gymnastics which I am quite relieved about - as it does get a bit boring after a while - bad mum - am I supposed to admit to that???

Anyhoo, just wanted to blog this card for one of Toms friends who's birthday is soon - he is keen on karate so I used this Sugar nellie(?) Luca Karate stamp - coloured it with promarkers and used Basic Grey paper (it is from a 12 x 12 cupcake sheet - I think), the number 7 was kindly sent by one of the lovely ladies on MSE - I've left it white but thinking about either colouring it or adding glitter - what do you think??
I would like to enter this into
Basic Grey challenge - dots & spots
Lets ink it up - anything goes.
One Stop Craft Challenge - card for a child
Paper Sundaes - circles



Ooh while I remember I'll just pop these on - to show I can sometimes finish tasks - because I am terrible for leaving things half finished and then having a panic on about how I am going to finish it. Well you know the wedding card with no envelope I set too the other day and made a box for it ( too big - oops ) but with a little bit of tissue paper to add to the effect I did it - yes finished a task well ahead of schedule - yay!!)

















Sorry for the lousy pictures they were taken late last night - blooming low energy bulbs - but you get the idea - lol.


Thanks for looking xx
