PBSC Recycling

I've not been around too much, I've a really nasty throat which was put down to a virus & it was coming & going but never really went away, well after seven weeks struggling with it the doctor thinks I might have a cyst on my thyroid. I've had lots of blood tests today & am having about 5different things hopefully eliminated, plus having to have a scan on my throat, just a wee bit nervous , but also a bit relieved something is being done.
Anyhow on to more impotant things, I've manged to cobble together this card from half done projects, the button covers one abandoned project where the bird was upsidedown.

The PB image is Raining Daisies
DP is imaginesce
Cuttlebug embossing folder
ribbon & button from box
Prima flowers
this is for PBSC

Many thanks for any comments which are always appreciated.

This Little Piggy

I got this in a sale with another piggy, I'm sure, but just can't find it. I have way too many stamps, but just can't part with any.
I have had a major clear out, but more must go, the brownies I think have enough stash to see them through to the guides!
This card fits two challenges, which is rare for me as I never have the time to look around, there seems so many on the go,
Recipe is
PB Pinky Joy & sentiment
DP is from a while back I think is Imaginesce
Stampin up ovals
Spellbinders circles
Swiss dots embossing folder
MS border punch
WOC flower
Sketch Saturday, using there layout
Penny Black at Allsorts Spring theme


PBSC Green

This is for PBSC which is to use green, I've maybe overdone it a little.
Sorry about the flash, but this is the best of about 12 pics, the flash just keeps picking up the same part & it's not really shiny, tried everything, but just not working.

I've used stickeroos which I've never used before
The paper was discovered while having a clearout & thought it would suit the frogs, as was the embossed acetate which someone gave me ages ago & I never found a use for, the bottom curly bit was from a sizzix die, actually  the card just fell together from bits which were destined for the bin during a clearout, so not surprising something went wrong, ie the photo.
Thanks for looking

Blueberry Muffin

I love blueberries in any form, especially as they come, this is my first try with the muffin stamp, it's for granny's birthday, she'll be 3 next week & loves cooking & purple, I was going to do another easel card, but decided to keep it simple, just in case it got displayed sideways or upside down, she doesn't do new fangled. just plain & simple.
I've used

Tilda with wooden spoon coloured with promarkers
Magnolia sentiment
Magnolia blueberry DP
Spellbinders dies
This is for Totally Tilda Challenge, which I hope I'm on time for, usually always too late for these challenges.
Thanks for the get well wishes, it's still sore but a little better, at least I managed my yoga class today.
Many thaks for any comments & for taking the time to visit.

PBSC More than One Fold

I've not been around much, had a really bad throat, although I've been making cards as this is my busy time for family birthdays, they've really just been made & posted, this is second to last for a few weeks, my niece's birthday on Sunday.
This is my first attempt at this style I think it's called a twisted easel, I did have one or two problems espesially with DST got a bit carried away with it & forgot half of the back isn't taped so as I did't have any more of this blue card, I added some contrast to the back & taped it again, the right way

This is for PBSC

I've used
PB Birthday balloons
PB Sentiment
Card & flowers from craft box
Spellbinders circles & corners
I hope this fits the challenge
Many thanks for any comments, which are always appreciated.

Chris' birthday card

At last got round to posting this,it was supposed to go into a challenge, but missed it.
 I got a bargain of these Flippin stamps about a year ago & never used them, as my son loves to garde & has just got back from a lads weekend in London, it seemed appropriate, not keen on the pint though, as I'm not a fan of alcohol.
These were a dream to stamp, colour & cut out, so credit where it's due
I've coloured with promarkers
DP are Basic Grey
Bazzil cardstock
MS bird punch

Thanks for visiting
