Truly Scrumptious Challenge...Crafty Catz Challenge...It's Been A Long Time..

Wow where does the time go can believe its been so long since I posted on my little old blog....
its begining to think winter came too soon and hibernation had begun early...
Well what have I been up to???
Where to begin.lol...Went on holiday again to Turkey in October with partner and youngest son...Weather was awful...rained for 10 days out or 14 :-(...I caught the flu...just getting over it now 4 weeks on...and felt totaly misserable and wanted home to my own bed as you do...

The week after we came home went to the craft show at the SECC...stood and spoke to the lovely Lorraine...bought some lush new goodies but have still yet to play with them...need to get my finger out and get going as christmas is fast approaching and I will be leaving it til the last minute as usual...

Boys are all well...still playing football and golf....still creating more washing than I ever expected possible :-(
Have gone and bought myself a new iron so hopefully will take the strain instead of my poor arms...wish it was robotic and went by itself but no such luck.lol...
Work going so so....have got new job within a contact centre and I am missing being out and about in peoples homes trying to help them....but as they say a jobs a job and I shouldnt complain...have got a pay rise and back money to look forward to come the end of the month so thats a boost to the xmas funds :-)

Still come on a have a nosey at everyones blogs even though dont get time to comment as much as I would like but fingers crossed my hours will be back to normal in the near future and no more 8.30pm finishes then I will get more time to do the things I enjoy...

Have made a card for a couple of challenges so here goes...maybe I have lost my touch but only you can tell me that....

Card is for one of my son's friends who is into golf as much as he is...as far as I can remember I have not used this image for him but if I have Im sure he will forgive me...




The image is one of Kenny K's. I downloaded the image a long time ago before his website and challenge blog were up and running but you can buy it from here where there are loads of fab images to choose from all very hip and happening for young and old alike but dont blame me if you start spending.lol...

The background papers are a mix...the black and grey swirl and spot ones are from the Black Market Paper Society -Ebony & Aabaster Collection...I cant remember where I bought them but it was online somewhere...google and Im sure you will find them...I have used them a few times on cards and love the vintage feel they have as you can see work great with a young guys card...

The red stripe paper is from the Forever Friends Christmas 2009 'Gift Wrapped' A4 card pad...I love this pad and used it on many chrimbo cards last year and still have loads left...again Im sure you may find it online somewhere if you google it.

The black pearls, little golf balls and pins are from stash...Ticket Sentiment was a free download but cant remember where from but if any of you do know where its from let me know so that I can give them credit for their work...

I am entering the card into the Truly Scrumptious Challenge where they have a fab sketch and with the option of using petals, pearls and pins...
I have used 2 out of the 3 so thats not bad for a guys card is it????

Also entering the Crafty Catz Challenge where its spots and stripes

Thanks for looking and hope you are all well in blogland wherever you are...

loadsa hugs and happy crafting

Hi Jackie, wondered who this Jackie was in my followers just now! Good to see you on here. Was at SECC too, what a pity we didn't bump into each other, mind you, so busy oogling over all that stash you could of been standing next to me and probably wouldn't of noticed. Love the card by the way. Carolxx

This card will be just perfect for that golfer xx

Sorry to hear your holiday was not as it should have been, that happened to me & hubby one year in Spain, there is nothing you can do about though x

Lets hope the flu vanishes soon x
