Funky Friday

So we're on the cusp of the weekend and a whole week off with the children for me! I'm really looking forward to time off, it might not be a proper holiday but it will be lovely to be away from work; have some time to catch up on some jobs and hopefully get a boatload of crafting in as well...

Today I'm sharing a card I made recently using papers from the Dreams Come True cd rom and the Fairy Happy image from Tiddly Inks.

 I'm not the most confident of colourists and decided I would have a go with watercolour pencils for this. Here she is

So that's it from me for this week and you never know there might be a few more posts from me next week! Love as always, Sammylou xXx

Attention! A card with the military in mind...

 Happy Wednesday to you all x today I am sharing a card I made for an 18th birthday. The chap in question had just passed his Marines exam so the theme army was the brief.

The card I made was from a fabulous designer, Gordon Fraser and his dude designs can be found at Craftsuprint. 

I decoupaged the Dude and hand cut a number 18 using a Union Jack paper. 

Male cards can be a nightmare but a simple brief can sometimes manifest into a card to be proud of! I really enjoyed making this card and will no doubt use the dude again!

See you all on Friday for a Funky Friday share. Love as always, Sammylou xXx

Friday's Forgotten Funkies!!

What an alliteration to get you going on a Friday? Sammylou here and today I am sharing makes from the Shabby Saturday download from Funky Hand.
I just love the colours in this collection and think they are absolutely perfect for all kinds of makes. I have showcased two of my makes over on the Get Funky and Craft blog but wanted to share with you another of my makes using the download:

I have paper pieced the birdie using some of the papers, embossed plain white card to mat the image and cut out one of the fabulous sentiments available as part of the download. A quick card made in minutes using the delicious papers :)

I hope you like him and if you'd like to see more of the makes from the Funkettes, please pop on over to the blog for a lots more inspiration. And, if you love it as much as we do, then pop on over to the website to bagsy your own! And don't forget to share your makes over on the Funky Hand Facebook page!

Speak soon, love Sammylou xxx

A bit of Bot!

Happy Hump day to you all, it's my turn over on the Get Funky and craft blog today and I am sharing a card using the new Boys will be Boys download and the fabulous digi Bot! As you will see, Bot is quite a character and looks like he's up for any adventure.

I have used him to make the card I have shared on the Get Funky blog and also an easel card for my Husband from our son. It's not his birthday until the 3rd of this month so I'm hoping he doesn't see it!

I used pro markers to colour him to match the papers and added the die cut Daddy. The papers themselves just pop with colour and I think my Husband will be really pleased. Our son definitely approved!

I am busy adjusting to my new work hours which have changed to accommodate my son starting school so I have been a little quiet of late. I hope you don't hold it against me and bear with me as I try to figure out how to organise my blogging and card making around this change.

I will be back soon to share some other fun stuff I have been working on. See you all soon, Sammylou xxx
