Just for Fun " Anything Goes " !!!!! Moving Along with the Times Here comes summer !

Would like to start off by saying a couple of thank you' s. The first is for all your kind words of encouragement during these difficult times here in Greece I really do appreciate them . Secondly would like to thank the lovely and talented ladies at Just for Fun who had me as their guest design team member last week , I had a ball ladies !!

This week over at Just for Fun they have an easy peasy challenge even I can't moan about it ! the topic is " Anything Goes "  Now I know you are all most probably sick of my Silhouette creations but I am afraid to say I am not so until I get fed up or my pokey tool becomes blunt you will be seeing a few more of them !





It seems that everything I create at the moment has a flower on it and it always seems to end up in the corner, believe you me I did try several other positions but as you can see the corner won once again !



Both of the cards where made using the Silhouette including the background paper . For the flower I used my Paper Artsy flower die and the two little butterflies on the lower card which I hand punched ( not a rubber stamp or a drop of ink in sight ) the butterflies where added purely to cover up a little accident I had with my glue gun , ah whats a girl to do. Now for all you stampers and inkers out there who are most probably thinking this took me about two minutes I have to say in my defense that using electric die cutters is not as easy as it seems ! It has taken me hours to produce these two and then of course I lost the light ! Would also like to enter this into Moving along with the Times challenge a blog that I have been keeping an eye on of late, lot's of my followers seem to enter this one so I thought well why should I be left out !!! Their theme is  " Here Comes Summer " and I hope these cards fit the bill. http://movingalongwiththetimes.blogspot.com/

I have had several requests well one actually from Irini  " The Boss " at Get Creative where I am on the DT, for pictures of the dastardly duo Rosie and Bailey otherwise known as R&B. So for you Irini here are a couple of the little blighters trying to get in my gym bag. I do believe that Rosy ( the porker ) has a bag fetish,  ( a bit like myself  although I prefer to buy them rather than sit in them  ! ) on an earlier post I have a picture of her sitting in my suitcase !





That's all for now folks look forward to popping by you all later on , it seems that the lecky man has taken pity on us and decided to give us a little break hence the long post and all the photo's.

Bye for now

Marie

  1. If you ever tire of the blighters (although I seriously doubt it) then I would happily give them a loving home - Too Cute!!!
    A real blast of summer with the cards you have made.

  13. Really gorgeous cards Marie. Just love the colours on both. Very cute milkmaid and cow too.
    Your 2 little cuties look gorgeous and a little sheepish too so maybe they know they shouldn't sit on your bag lol

  17. This card is still great since my last comment lol.
    But thanks for your comment on my PBSC and as for the rub on, I hate them, hence having this sheets for yonks, and to be quite honest I was terrified to use them as I didn't expect them to work, was stunned and relieved when they did.
