Do you ever find that the card you make is not the one you thought you would make? Or is it just me? I was sure I had some paper with strawberries on it as there are one or two strawberries and cream challenges around. Well I was right and as you can see I found it. Somehow I had visualised a redder card if you see what I mean but this is what I ended up with lol!

The original didn't have any leaves but I managed to smudge one of the liquid pearls and had to add something to cover the smudge - hence the leaves! After I had taken several photos I then realised that I hadn't added stickles to her dress. Thank goodness for digital cameras lol.

sorry I've been a bad blogger and not visited anyone for a few days. We were babysitting for my daughter from Friday to Monday. So not much time for blogging with a seven and a half month baby and a two year 7 month toddler. And of course Catriona forgot to give me the password to use their broadband so my laptop was not a lot of use to me. Before I went I only had time to do my DT cards and schedule the posts and comment as far as I could. Now I need to catch up with this week's commenting and do next week's DT work. I really wish I had time to catch up with all my favourite blogs but I don't think their are enough hours in the day. If I don't manage to visit you today then I will try really hard tomorrow!

This week at Just Cute Bears our challenge is Here comes Summer. Now you might be thinking "what Summer?" Well if it's not too good where you are you might just have to use your imagination!
I think this cute Penny Black bear just says "Summer." Look at him, doesn't he look as if he's enjoying himself? Lying in the sunshine in his hammock with a lovely cold drink lol!

This week I have made a birthday card. I couldn't resist this cute PB hedgie in his car. And all boys love cars don't they?
Image :- Penny Black - Auto Hog.
DP :- Wild Rose Studio - For Men.
Colouring :- Promarkers, Sakura clear glitter gel pen, and clear gel pen.

Ribbon from stash.
I'm also entering some challenges with this card :-
One Stitch at a Time :- Boys to Men.
Mojo Monday :- Sketch.
You could make a Father's Day card or a birthday card for a man or a boy, just whatever you think fits the challenge. Looking forward to seeing what you make this week. My talented teamies have made some gorgeous cards as usual and you can find links to them in my sidebar. If you have time pop over and see what they have made to inspire you.
Enjoy your weekend. I will! I am off to Alford to see some demos from the inimitable Kath of Penny Black fame. She is going to be demonstrating using Hero Arts stamps and some Tim Holtz products. Can't wait to see what she's going to make.

I also had to waste time going to Tesco for onions. Didn't occur to me that I needed them when I went to the local shop for my papers. I suppose that would have been too easy!
So here it is and right up until it was almost complete I still wasn't sure about it. I'm still not sure about the blue I used for matting. The plain pink was no problem but the blue was a nightmare! I had all sorts of blue out. Too blue, too green (?), to dark, too light. So I just gave in and chose this one. I'm a bit disappointed about how the ribbon looks in the photo. In real life it doesn't look as dark.

But on to our challenge at Just Cute Bears. This week we would like you to make something for Father's Day.
This is the lovely stamp you could win this week from our sponsor Kim at Cuddly Buddly. Isn't this a sweet image and just right for this time of year. I've just heard from Ali that Kim has a sale on just now so her web shop is definitely worth a visit!
As usual I struggled with doing a male card lol! Funny cos I have a husband, son, son-in-law and grandson and I was brought up with 2 brothers. I spent ages looking for this stamp which I KNEW I had but couldn't find. Then I realised that I'd tidied up my LOTV stamps into a folder lol!

It's rather late now so I'm just off to schedule this post and go to bed. After work tomorrow it'll be a bit of a novelty to just come home and catch up with blogging. I'm very relieved that my daughter's flat is finished now - well enough for her to be living in it!! Maybe now we can do something about a very weedy garden and a house that needs all it's outside woodwork varnished.
Enjoy your weekend and I'm hoping to pop over to some of your blogs to see what you've been making especially if you've managed to join us at Totally Gorjuss.

Meantime I'd like to offer Princess Tilda as candy. I accidentally ordered her recently and couldn't be bothered sending her back to exchange her for a different Tilda. She's really pretty so I hope one of my followers would like her. If you'd like her please leave me a comment before midnight (GMT) and I'll draw a winner on Saturday 5th June. She's only little so I'll post worldwide.
Good luck everyone.

So now I just need to make a birthday card for her and get it posted on time! Her birthday is on Sunday and funnily enough she was born on a Sunday.
