Here fishy, fishy

So it's Sunday and I've found some quiet time to sit and get my blog updated and maybe even schedule some posts for the coming week.
Today I'm sharing the card I made for Niece's husbands birthday. He's an avid fisherman down in Devon so when I got the Best Fishes stamp and die set for Christmas I knew straight away I'd be using it to make John's birthday card.  This is the second time I've used it now and both times I've made shaker cards with it. It's so hard not to plus I am addicted to shaker cards at the mo. 
I also used these great dies called frames craft dies to create the glitter scallopped frame.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges :

Virginia's View Challenge who want to see your shaker cards,
Simon says stamp wednesday challenge who want to see all creatures great and small,
and finally
Crafty Catz weekly challenge who want to see cards for the boys.

Thanks for coming on by and checking up on me. If you'd like to become a follower or would like to leave a comment I'd be thrilled,

Happy Valentines from your little monsters

Just a quick post to share my hubby's valentines card. I couldn't share it earlier for obvious reasons and need to post it before the challenge deadline over at Less is more challeneg who is celebrating their 4th anniversary.
The challenge is yo use pink and grey in your card.
Heres my take on the challenge

The heart was die cut and has then been inlaid as such with the die cut words Love in two shades of pink. With the glitter pink heart added to make the word dtand out.
The tree monsters from Tiddly Inks represent our three labswho at times can be little monsters.
On the inside I have done inlaid die cuts with a row along the bottom of tiny pink x's and a stamp from this months card kit from Simon Says Stamp which reads "WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE?"  I will add a photo of this tomorrow.

So many cards and yet not got em blogged!!

Hello, is there anybody out there??????
Yes I am still alive and finally getting some cards made. My mojo really took a beating with my health issues and some depression and it's taken me a long while to finally find a new style I love and feel happy with.
My card for today is a request off my Sister in law and I decided I'd have a go at a couple of challenges and maybe try and blog it.

The challenges I am entering are ;
Clean and simple on Sundays who want you to use a stencil which I have on the circle behind the image.
Colour Me who have this great colour palette 

And finally Freshly Made Sketches with this perfect sketch.
Here's my take on all three challenges

I have used Sk8tr from Tiddly Inks and coloured him with spectrum noir pens.  The pennants are by My Favourite things and the patterned paper is by Stampin Up.  I used Wendy Vechi paste with the stencil.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you may leave,
