Julia's 10K Subscriber Blog Hop

Welcome to the penultimate stop on the blog hope celebrating Julia reaching 10,000 YouTube Subscribers.  As a valued member of my DT over at Seven Hills Crafts I had to support her in this awesome achievement!    As such I have donated a great prize package worth around £45 including stamps from Lawn Fawn, PaperSmooches and Wplus9, a great die from Concord and 9th and a Simple Stories washi tape pack.

You should have come to me from Stephanie Klauck but if you have only just joined the hop then make sure you go back to Julia's page and start the hop as there are LOTS of prizes to be won so make sure you don't miss anyone out.   Here's the full list of hoppers:

For my card I decided to make a fun card to remind Julia how awesome she is and I thought a pancake flipping chef was just the way to do it!

I used Recipe for Happiness from MFT and coloured the chef with copics before fussy cutting and cropping off his fingers (ouch) so his hand worked for holding the pan.   I used the Surf and Turf dies and spin and slide discs to make my flippin' pancake which I just cut by hand from kraft and used a few pencils to shade it. Unlike when I try to flip pancakes in real life he always catches it too ;-)

That's all from me - hope you liked my fun interactive card.  The final step on the hop is Yoonson Hur so hop on over and check out her fabulous project.

Thanks for visiting - Happy Hopping!

Ninja birthday

I don't get nearly as much time to craft for fund as I'd like these days but as it's my hubby's birthday today I did need to make him a card and as I made it with scraps of leftover card I thought I'd play along with one of my old favourite challenges and link up to Pixie's Sunday Snippets challenge - long time since I made it into the playground girls - can I have a go on the swings please???

I dug out an old Birdie Brown stamp from when she designed for the now closed There She Goes stamps - this one is perfect for my hubby who is a huge fan of all things Japanese and martial arts.  I decided to add a second sentiment so made it an open flap front card using an MFT blueprints die so I could hide the secret second layer inside but still on the outside!

I used a stitched hill die with another scrap from my snippets box and curved the sentiment from Clearly Besotted's Laugh Out Loud stamp set around it.

Happy Birthday darling - sorry about the dig about your age but you will ALWAYS be older than me!

The challenge at Less is More this week is to have something repeated on your card.  I thought this was the perfect theme for a new stamp set I just got so went to town with a rainbow of colours and just one of the images from the set.

Perfect for the mini heatwave we are supposed to be getting this week too!   The stamp is from the 3rd Birthday release from Newton's Nook and is called Party Pops and there are 6 different lollies to choose from but to keep it CAS I stuck to the one style and just changed the colours each time.  You add the stick to your lolly of choice.  I added the sentiment directly over the top to keep is super-CAS.

Hope you all get the sunshine this week.
