Hi everyone !

Hi everyone,
Sorry to have been MIA ..We have been in Barcelona,visiting Sara ( our daughter ). We had a smashing time and never stopped ! It doesn't matter how many times you go there, you always discover new parts etc.This time we travelled over to Tarragona and visited the PortAventura theme park for a day.We have been a few times over the years. We had a great time at the park ! We got soaked numerous times on the water rides..and it just added to the fun. They have a new rollercoaster there,' Shambhala' and all l can say is ..It was an Experience !!! hehehe...( see it on YouTube !)  Sara was free from work for 2 days , so it was great that she could join us...Back to routine now though, and just caught up with everything! So , l will be visiting you all soon to see what you have all been up to !
Hugs Susan x

Woof !

Evening everyone,
Its been a busy few days  ! I am looking forward to the weekend .My daughter ,Sara, is coming over on Sunday from Barcelona until Wednesday ,so it will be nice for her to have a break from her work and wonderful for us to have her home to spoil hehe. The weather over here has been fabulous this week,so l hope it continues over the weekend.
 I started a new James Pattereson book last weekend, and its so exciting, but I have not had time this week to read anymore, so l am hoping to get in the garden this weekend and enjoy my book...

The card l am showing you this evening is a 6x6 card blank. I have used some distressed brown DP and a blue DP for layering and matting.l used promarkers to change the colours of the kennel and the 'woof ' die cut.l also used a dark blue and  a white pencil for outlining. The coredinations brown card stock has been put through an embossing folder and lightly sanded afterwards. As l wanted this to have a rather male look to it,l have added 4 staplers just for decoration... All dies have foam pads to give them a 3D look and all materials are from my stash.
I would like to pop this card into the following challenges...
Wishing you a lovely evening and good start to the weekend

One for the box !

Evening everybody,
The card l am sharing today is one for the box...The card is a  pale yellow card blank.I have had some Laura Ashley papers for a while now, so l dug one out and used it to matt the card front.I have cut the front at an angle and placed it on the inside to create a pocket to use for a voucher.l haven't used peel offs for a while, so decided to use some more pale yellow card with the peel offs, then cut them out and use them to  embellish the card.The sentiment is from a sheet and matted onto the yellow card,  with a few tiny silver balls.. All items used are from my stash..
I am going to pop this into the following challenges..
Hope everyone is well and havin a nice afternoon ..Hugs Susan x

    Foxy !

    Afternoon everyone,
    Had such a busy morning...its great having a ' Dia de fiesta' but the queues in the bank this morning were horrendous ! Best part of an hour waiting to get served..I managed to keep the other appts. that l had, but it was all rush rush !
    The card l am showing today is a 5x5 white card blank. The image is another from the 'Big One' cd.I have decoupaged the image..l love his little face !  l have matted the image onto some grey card stock and  then onto some green DP, all from my stash .The branch is a die from Marianne designs.I actually cut it out using an odd piece of white card, then used shabby shutters distress ink pad all over it. My good friend Barbara sent me a bag full of tiny buttons, so l have used 2  different colours to cordinate with the image ..The inside of the card has the same green DP , branch and smaller version of the image...
    I want to enter this card into the following challenges..
    Wishing you all lovely afternoon..Hugs Susan x

      Quick and Simple !

      Afternoon everyone,
      I think the weather today over here in Mallorca, has ticked all the boxes. This morning was glorious, blue skies, sunny and warm !  We took advantage of today being a 'fiesta'  day and  we had a lovely long walk and a coffee in a little bar infront of the beach. Come lunchtime, we were having thunder, heavy rain, hailstones and a considerable drop in the temperatures ! Looking out now, as l write , we are back to blue skies with some dark clouds lurking on the horizon...Its crazy ! So all you in the UK  or else where suffering from all the heavy rains of late, and  thinking of' 'Spanish sunshine'...think again ! hehehe
      The card l am showing you all today is really quick and simple...5x5 white card blank.2 sheets of the same pink , flowery paper.One for the front of the card and the other for the inside. The topper is from Kanban ( l think).I have used 3 little pearls and some pink ribbon and a little pink, material flower embellishment.. .thats it ! Everything used today is from my stash !
      I am going to pop this into the following challenges...
      Wishing you all a lovely evening ..Hugs Susan x
