It's a boy.. or maybe a birthday

Evening all...
Just me popping online to show off a card..
This is a first for me...
using a sewing machine. I often see other people on blogs 
and think it looks so nice and finished
anyway I had a go
 It has No sentiment yet.. am not 100% sure on what I want to use it for.. 
But I am happy with the result
 The teddy stamps are from Bobunny (I think)
They where a freebie with a magazine
I have stamped and heat embossed
 The idea I have is to make a flag to go in the middle
with the sentiment

I enjoyed sewing and will have to have a longer play
I am linking this project up to

Tatty birthday wishes

Hello campers... how are you all
just little me again showing a quick make card
it seems all I have time for of late
 But at least I did manage to make one
I have used a tatty teddy image which is decoupaged
I then layered onto pink card
the papers are nana's nursery baby girl paper stack
 I have no idea where the butterfly came from... 
the only person I can think of is Pauls mum... 

I have used EK success boarder punch not sure on the name though
How rubbish am I !!!
I have decided that I am not buying anything new 
shock I know.. but there is a reason
I need to use up papers etc that I have already
I have packed the printer away so I can not print more
My cards as of now will not have sentiments on unless I have stamps
I am also on a mission to make some 
Chirstmas cards.. yes Christmas.. 
Right I have craft time so I must shut the PC down and not go smooching
thanks for stopping by

Anyone for GOLF

Well I am showing a card for a man today
In browns and blues
I found the image on Google
printed off and coloured with my pens
I have to say it coloured sort of ok
not much bleeding
 The papers are from a magazine
one from two years ago now
I will use up all my papers
The image I chose for a older person
I don't have any standby cards so I am making a few
 I layered and added a small bow for interest.

Now this is the first card I have EVER matched

I actually picked the papers and coloured the image to match
or as near too..
you see I usually colour then try to find papers..
and they dont always match.

I see Tasmin took over yesterday
and showed off some photo's
My lovely Car.. so so nice to drive
and no breaking down anymore
We are going out again over the weekend.
keeping Hannah entertained.
But it takes me away from crafting
and getting time to get on the PC and do posts
I just dont seem to have time..
And I am not working.. but with one thing and another
I dont get chance to sit and concentrate long enough
I have so many bits of cards made its unreal
I really have to put my foot down
I want to make Christmas cards
I should have at least 20 made by now.
but have none.
anyway I have to go.. 
Hannah's new wardrobe came today so we are sorting clothes
and the new dining table came tonight we eat in
Thanks for stopping by and sorry I am not around that much
oh and I best not forget..
Welcome to my latest follower.. I will be around more often

I have added this to linky's
Alphabet Challenge.. -  M for men only
Clear it out Challenge - Manly and 2 or more papers
Make it Monday

Tasmin here

Morning all.. it is so nice outside
And guess what
Mum is in the shower.. so I thought I would use the black box again
We have just been for a really long walk
We walked dad to work then back
but mum took me onto the field so I could fetch the ball
I love that game.. mum throws it and I find it and take it back to her
and it makes her so happy cos she smiles..
(Dad can throw it further, just he doesn't tend to smile to much)
Her I am... I have had my hair cut don't I look cute.. 
Hey stop looking at the fluffy ball next to me..
Yes I know she is cute.. her name is Asher and she lives with Gran
Dad's mum.. and Ember her older dog..
Anyway mum took me to meet her.. 
she is so fast, and annoying, she runs under my tummy so I can't get her
and jumps up and nips my ears.. 
On Sunday we went for a drive in the NEW car
am sure mum has shown you
We ended up a big wall called a DAM
water one side and none the other

 I loved it... but am not sure how it works
How do they stop the water to build the wall !!!
I didn't ask mum as I was enjoying myself
 Here's me and mum again
Dad was taking the picture
Then we went further up a long road..(in the car)
and stopped for another walk
this time longer
 the picture above is where the car is parked.
you can see it.its the Yellow one
 Mum said we walked 6 miles along Penine Way
it was lovely and I kept hearing mum say
wow the views.. !! whatever that means
I just thought the grass smelled funny
then I found out why
 Look at these things
they are HUGE and they chased me and dad..
you see Mum all of a sudden gave me to dad... 
so dad had to walk past them with me
but they chased and dad that is..
mum ran the other way
so we then had to wait for her to walk past them on her own
and it took a long time (think she was a little scared)
We walked for miles and kept walking past water
there we are... can you see us.. me and mum
Dad was walking slow...
Mum said the water is a resa something.. 
It is a strange word.. looks like the sea to me
Then we walked back.. the cows didn't get me on the way back
Dad carried me hiding me under his arms.
lots better than being chased.

I have just found another picture of me
look with the car
Mum loves it..she chose it.. well the colour
Dad chose the type cos it goes fast.. 
I heard them talking and dad said its the best model !!
Its yellow and I have to sit in the boot !!!!
Right mum is on her way so I will say good bye for today
Am sure mum will be on here later..
after she has gone shopping
She is starting a thing called a diet !!
I hope that means I still get my treats..
