Cardmaking

Ho ho ho…. it’s Christmas in July!

Hi crafty people, how are you today?  I hope you are all doing well.  We are a “man” down in the Ginger Ninja household as the Ginger Ninja himself is poorly and has been at the vets since Sunday morning.  He had a blockage in his bladder so he was really distressed and sore but after surgery and lots of TLC from the vets and nurses he is on the mend and I hope we can bring him home really soon because we are all missing him.  Here’s a pic from healthier times!

I have been crafting as a good distraction and I’d like to share a festive make for the following challenges:

Here is my card:

I used a new Sizzix die and I coloured his face and beard with some alcohol inks.  I paper pieced the hat with some red card and a glitter white for the fur and pom pom.

I thought I would finish off with a few pics from our wander around Edinburgh on Saturday night.  We managed to find 7 of the “Oor Wullie” statues that are dotted around the city.  I used to read the Oor Wullie cartoons in the Sunday post as a kid so it was fun to see a few and I hope to see some more before they get auctioned for children’s charities.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and I hope to see you again soon!

100 Things Challenge

100 Things Challenge #5-#10

Happy Fri-yay!  Today I’m sharing a few pictures of items I’ve made for my 100 Things Challenge.  In a nutshell the challenge is to use up some of my crafty stash to make 100 things before shopping for new craft items!  These are items 5-10 and it’s a bit of a mix.  There is a couple of cards you have seen that I did for challenges.  The 40th birthday card was a request from a customer for a James Bond fan.  I made a batch of gift tags for Christmas as I’ve started making a few Christmas projects.  I used up some scraps of paper and a flower punch and added some gems (I seem to have amassed a big pile of bling….. a wonderful problem to have!) so I have a supply of little embellishments for happy mail, pocket letters etc.  Finally I made a Traveller’s Notebook insert.  I was in Paris for a few days with my husband in May and the plan is to put some photographs, tickets, memories etc in.  Hopefully I will get some spreads done and share them in this 100 things challenge!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you liked seeing some of my projects and I’ll be back next week with the next batch.
