Ismaki 37

A super sketch this week again from the ladies at Ismaki. I originally intended for this card to go to my ex-husband's aunt, who is terminally ill with cancer but then I remembered that she just adores owls. So now I am on the hunt for a super owl stamp so I can cheer her up a little. She married late in life (a man 20 years her junior) and so never had any kids. I always think of her as the owl-lady cos she would carry a toy owl everywhere :). Saw her just recently when she took my boys on a hot-air ballon trip. She has decided to do all the things in life she would NEVER dream of doing lol. She has even bought a fast racing car.
Anyways, this sweet Tilda will have to go somewhere else :).

Tilda and Friends "Tag your're it"

Front of tag
Inside tag

I don't do a lot of ATCs but this weeks challenge was to make a tag so I thought I'd have a go. And Tilda is my favorite stamp so made it double fun. I made the tag so it opened with a tie closing. I think it turned out rather nice :)

Don't get as many cards done as I would like but life pretty hectic lol. Terrible 2s and 12s together with arranging to finally moving in with my boyfriend after 7 years together is rather stressful.

Sukkersott No 10

Don't you just love Edwin!!! The challenge at Sukkersott is Brown and Green colours. And the fall is full of those colours.
On a different note I had to get my neighbour to put my spare wheel on my car. A nail at caused it to get flat. I am usually pretty good at being independant (you have to be as a single mum) but I can't change tyres.

Friday Sketchers No 22

As always there is a great sketch at Friday Sketchers and the DT ladies do wonderful work.
For my card I have used this cute stamp by Panduro. These are only available in Scandinavia as Panduro is an old danish family company. My mum bought them for me as a "well-done for stopping smoking for 1 year" present . After some encouragement from me lol. When I next go home I am definately visiting their huge shop as they have some super stamps.
