Yoo hoo...

... hello all, hope you are well - pah! not managing to keep up with this blogging malarky - especially after hubby and me rejoined the gym - so trying to fit everything in is a bit of a struggle.  I have photo updates to take of my stitchy things but the light has been so shocking - I'll have to leave it a little while.  Although I did notice it was lighter a bit later tonight - whoo hoo!!

Anyhoo, enough waffling here is a card I made a while ago but never got round to blogging and as there are a few challenges it will fit into I'll blog it now:

The image is a Pollycraft one (who have since stopped trading :-( ) - coloured with promarkers and although it doesnt show it on the photo (and I forgot to take a side shot - doh!) it has been coloured twice and layered with 3d sticky squares.  I have distressed around the edge and layered onto black card - and added a skull charm.  The dp is Basic Grey and I have (electronically) die cut the word dude and again used 3d squares to raise it up from the card.

I would like to enter this into:

I love promarkers - one for the boys
Charizma cards - a boys thing
A gem of a challenge - for the boys

Thanks for looking



  1. Most impressed with your die cut word. Now the Gym is one place you will never see me in! I tried it once and was bored stiff after ten mins!! hugs Mrs A.

  2. Hey, Ali! Know what you mean about the light being shocking - when are these days ever going to get any longer? Roll on March! I can't wait for some better weather - I'm not a gym girl, but do like a good, brisk walk...I suppose there's always the option of swimming at the moment?!
