Bunting: PBSC

Hi all, I've been awol again, just not finding the time to be on here , still making jam & gardening along with other things & looks like I'k going to spend the weekend catching up with the dreaded housework & the ironing basket is overflowing too, UGH.
This is a very quick card to catch the deadline, why do they always cause the most problems, you start out thinking I'll have this done in no time & 2hours later still fiddling with it, it was supposed to say PARTY TIME, but ran out of space, anyhow here it is,
Card recipe:
PB Party Animals
Basic Grey Cupcake DP
Spellbinders labels
Sizzix alphabet
Clear sentiment
Bakers twine

Thanks for visiting & for any comments
Have a great weekend

The Ribbon Girl challenge

Flower Power PB @ Allsorts

Hello all, at last we have sunshine, what a mirerable wet few days we've had here, had a busy few days making more jam & clearing out the endless weeds, just tried a new jam this morning, Rhubarb, Lemon & Lavendar, wasn't sure, but had all the ingredients & it's not too bad at all, does leave a hint of lavendar aftertaste, but not unpleasant, so bang goes the diet again.

On to the cards I've managed two which is unusual for me at the moment, first is:
PB Merci Bouquet
Bazzil bling cardstock
DP I've had forever
Flowers are a mix of WOC & Prima, punched ones EK retro small, leaves Leon Em branch
SU sentiment & ovals

Cool Dude

Hi again, weathers been a bit more behaved today, just one shower, we've had lots of flooding here so a good thing the sun came out for a while & I live on top of a hill, wish I was wherever this cool cat is getting all that sunshine, we do have a beach a couple of miles away, but that could be flooded too LOL.
Still busy with the jam, moving on to raspberry now, my son just polished off half a jar while it's still warm.

On to the card, this is for PB challenge Desert Island Stamps, I've chosen this one as it usually only comes out once a year.
I've made another of these simple stepper cards
PB Aloha, coloured with promarkers & sakura pens
Flip flops & sentiment are Imaginesce stamps
DP Basic Grey
Bazzil cardstock
MS border punch Shells
Background is TH distress ink pads, though not showing too well
Thanks for any comments which are always appreciated

I remembered about the lolly stamp & added today with glossy accents to make the ice lollies look more realistic

Hangler Girl

Hello all, hope you;ve survived the mega downpours & thunder storms, I think we surpassed the total rainfall for the whole month in one day , it's gone quiet for the moment but more coming, ah well I suppose we should expect it we had 2 whole really hot days.

This is my first time back for a whole week, been busy making strawberry jam, we've had a mega crop this year.

I managed a bit of time today  to make a card as it's been so wet, the challenge is shabby chic, which I'm not too sure about as I've not tried that before, I used aged looking DP & distressed the edges a bit, but not too good at that either, can't quite get the concept of destroying nice new papers, her's my effort with my nice new stamp.
