Put your best tie on!

Morning Folks!
Long time no see, but I'm back again with my card for the new challenge that is starting over at Sweet Stampin' this morning. Our theme this time is 


Here's my card, very CAS and not at all like the original idea in my head! The papers are Chateau Stripe by Chatterbox Inc, I bought several double sided 12" x 12" sheets several years ago but sadly this is nearly the last of them - think this might qualify as my favourite 'masculine' paper ever!! 

The stamp is 'Dressed Up' by Penny Black - another one that has been 'rescued' from Ebay - yes my addiction is getting worse but who could resist that little face??
Here's a closer look, coloured with promarkers and then fussy cut and framed with a nesties die cut background:

Love Ducks

Good Morning Folks!
Pheww, thank goodness it is FINALLY the weekend! 
I've had one of those weeks where I just seem to have been chasing my tail!! 
This is going to be a quick post, as I really should be tackling some of those chores I've been trying to avoid all week!!
 The new challenge just starting over at Sweet Stampin' is


which was lucky as I don't think I could have managed an elaborate card!! 

I've used another Penny Black stamp called Lovin' and Huggin' that was 'rescued' from Ebay. I think it is going to become a new favourite because it is really quick to colour and useful for so many occasions! The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

Here's the happy couple - aw cute!!

It had to be ....

Morning Folks!
Our new challenge has just started over at Sweet Stampin' and this time we'd like to see your projects inspired by a 


No prizes for guessing which film I went for!! I just wish I had more Paddington stamps in my collection, this one was a magazine freebie from several years ago. This card is going to be for my nephew, who is also a big PB fan - we went to see the film together! I wanted to keep the design fairly CAS but went for a joy fold to add a bit of interest.

The papers are from Country Companions Christmas 'Winter Wishes' collection and the bear himself has been coloured with promarkers, here's a closer look:
