Still here...

... just haven't posted for a while, with a missing mojo and getting things organised for my youngest sons birthday who was 10 on Tuesday, and is having a laserquest party on Saturday - just hope the rain has stopped by then - mind you it should make for a good muddy run around - I'm sure the other parents will love me - NOT!!

But a colouring session at Janines crafty club on Saturday helped to get a few cards started :-).  I was starting to panic just a little bit as I hadn't even made a start on Toms card but it all came together in the end - phew.

Now a theme seems to be emerging with Toms cards - he still likes army things - so thats what I did, I think this could be year 3 of an army card lol:

The image is a good ol' Bugaboo, coloured with promarkers, and distressed the edges.  I crimped some craft card and printed off the digi paper - added twine and made my own medal (hmm looking a bit wonky there yet it doesnt in real life??) and added the number 10 from my stash.  The card blank was an 8x8 from Craftwork cards, of which I distressed the edges.

I would like to enter this into:

Cutie Pies challenge blog: For the boys
Pink Elephant Challenge - digi image or papers (I've used both)
I love promarkers - anything goes
Cards for men - string it up
Crafty Little Fairies - numbered birthday

Right, thats my quickie post done - off to do some housework - I dont know about you but if I miss one day of pottering around it all goes a bit mental so I end up running around like a loony on my day off!!!  Mind you I am popping out for a sneeky lunch with a friend for a gossipy catch up - lol.

Thanks for looking
