Poppy Silhouettes

Hi all,

Well here we are at the end of another week, it's mid-term holiday here, so while the teenagers are still in bed, I thought I'd post this card I made yesterday.

I'm sure most folk love poppies, I certainly do, and I've much admired the Memory Box poppy die for quite a while, so I recently treated myself and I have to say, it cuts beautifully.

Supplies Used
Memory Box Poppy die
Stampin Up DP in Summer Starfruit
Sentiment is Hero Arts punched out with SU Petal Punch

I'm entering into this week's CAS-ology challenge:

Many thanks for coming to visit, wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Slider Money Wallet

Hi all, thanks for popping in today, I hope you are all well!

The new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and More is "This is a Man's World", hosted this time by Carol.  She's asking you to create anything suitable for a man or boy.

Well, I'm not good at masculine cards so I thought I'd do a children's money wallet, with a spinning football on it.  However, you know how an idea pops into your head, which you think will be a quick and easy make but sods law, it ends up taking you a whole afternoon to construct.  Well this was one of those occasions.

This was my first go at a slider/spinner card, and although the mechanics are actually quite simple, on my first attempt I made the grass too tall and the ball was sticking on it and then the sentiment I'd chosen was too big and was obstructing the slider hole.

So, after much faffing, here is make number 2 - short grass and little sentiment ....

Supplies Used
DP from stash (I just free-hand cut the grass)
Football stamp is from Hobbycraft, clear embossed
Letters are Studio G, clear embossed

Thankfully, now that we're into February, the days are starting to get a little longer and I can feel myself slowly coming out of hibernation! Lol!

Many thanks for coming to visit.
Take care
