Been playing again......

Hello Peeps!

Sometime in the middle of the year, I got a freebie stamp set with a magazine, and I carefully tore out the 'Your Free Gift' section of the magazine and put it on the ever-growing pile of stuff on the desk.

Yesterday I wanted to make something, as life has been just so busy lately just doing that I have not actually made it to the standing desk to make something just for me, just to play around. I was not feeling particularity inspired so I decided to CASe something from the pile!   The top one was from Woodware, (that's all I wrote on the box). These three cards were the result - straight CASe re design!

Momento ink, SU sentiment, some Stickles and scraps of paper, paper pieced leaves

This card uses a sentiment from an MFT set called Sweet Little Memory

Coloured up with the SU alcohol markers, some ribbon and paper from stash (SU)

Stickles on the darker colours

This one has been paper pieced too, and the mushrooms are also, as well as lifted up.

Didn't measure a thing - can you tell? SU sentiment.

 Last Monday our SIL had a birthday - you can checkout the number on the card! As he is a musician, and loves beer, barracks for Collingwood  (yeah, we know!) and has just spend time painting the house, I added a few items to represent these aspects of his current life! Love pop-up box cards for their ability to load up the things you want to add! I added a dinosaur as well - as he is getting so old!!!!

Papers and beer label image from a magazine

Lots of diecuts!

That raven (black and white bird) is from a red wine bottle label - he likes a drop of red too!

Yep,that old!

A bit of fun.

Finally, that's my middle Grand-daughter Hettie in her NZ Army Band uniform, who is currently in Fuhlsb├╝ttel, Hamburg, Germany for a Brass Band Competition with the Band. She has a singing gig with them this time as well as playing!

Thanks for looking!!

You've been a busy girl Susan. Hope your grand daughter enjoyed her visit to Germany. Can I ask where you got you music 'stuff' from for the pop up box. My grand daughter is musical too and these would be ideal on her birthday card. Hope it's stopped raining and you're now enjoying your Summer W x
