S on S Present

This weeks offering is using an image of a present, unfortunately I don't know the original designer of this so cannnot give them credit. I hope you like the way I've used the image and as usual I'll be posting a card later to show you how I've used this sheet. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Here we are as promised the card I've made using this weeks sheet. I used Dovecraft corner punch on the second layer and the plain backing paper was from a pack of card sheets from Grafix for Kids. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

S on S Bike on the beach

I'm sorry this is so late today, Iwent out this morning with my son and his family thinking I'd only be an hour or so and returned 8 hours later! lol Had a lovely day though and was spoilt to lunch out and dinner this evening. :-)
This weeks sheet is made with my Mum in mind as her 2 favourite things are cycling and the beach and even though she's in her late 70's she still cycles! I hope I'm that fit when I reach her age. As usual the sheet has been designed for printing on A4.

Mid week Freebie

Now don't get too used to these midweek freebies! lol It's not something I can offer regularly at the moment! That said, I hope you like this weeks offering! I thought I had better post something you can use for everyone including the men in your lives. As usual I'll post the card I make for you to see.

Sparky and Fudge

When I saw these photos I just had to make some cards with them. Sparkey and Fudge were in the news in January this year in Australia as Sparky the week-old miniature donkey was rejected by his mother after a difficult birth. He is being raised at Ashington Park Stud in Melbourne, and has a surrogate mum and companion in the form of a teddy bear called Ted that his carer brought for him. He has also made friends with a baby Alpaca named Fudge. Awwww

Envelope for wobble card

To make an envelope to fit this weeks S 0n S wobble card start with a piece of paper 71/2" (190mm) square If you have a metric scor pal with an envelope guide score A and B at 3inch mark other wise follow the diagram which I hope makes sense! lol by marking 41/4" (110 mm) in from each corner and scoring as shown.

I've added a photo of the cards made up, I added stickles to both cards. Next time I think I'll add some tiny gems. After making the cards I altered the image in the girls card so that it is lower and have changed the sheet for you in the previous post.

S on S Wobbling Ted

Hope you like this weeks sheet. It's my first attempt at designing a wobble card! As usual click on the image to enlarge it and print it on A4 card. So that I don't keep you waiting here's the card and insert for you, I've cut the insert between the lines as I like mine to be a fraction smaller than the actual card but its up to you. I'll be posting a template for the envelope later today. Bye for now

Just add ink challenge #24

This is my interpretation of Just add ink sketch challenge this week. I've stayed close to the sketch but found it hard to leave the top so blank and just had to add the 3 clear gems! lol


White cardstock from stash which I embossed with the 2 lines to 'frame' the card.

Stamps - from The stamp mans' Aspects of Design 6-Nature set.
- The sentiment is from a See D's set
Ink - Whispers black and I used brushmarks with a blender pen to add the colour in the leaves and berries.

Happy 4th July
