HUGE thank you to Paula from Pollycraft she took my brief and turned it into a great drawing that I will be using for numerous Beaver Projects I am sure.
so here are the 2 cards I made. For these I printed the black and white drawing out and coloured with promarkers. I used the doodlebug papers that I picked up at The Glitter Pot onn Saturday, they have leaves, frogs, bugs ect so a bit "outdoorsey". The small bag is an idea I thought of for presenting the badges to the beavers. For that one I colour the image prior to printing on the PC and then printed it out. If this idea is taken up I could be making 26 of these at a time so I needed to colour these before.
I am really pleased with these projects. Very simple but do the job.

I was having problems emailing the list so I have uploaded them to 4shared
House Mouse, SU Backgrounds, PB Christmas sets and more
PAYMENT PAYPAL PLEASE
SO here are the rest of the cards I made at the Glitter Pot yesterday. And also some of Carolyns cards, she is the owner along with Bryan and her colouring is beautiful! Her colours are always so vibrant and make mine look wishy washy. Mine are first.
I really messed up with the photos yesterday, I forgot to take single shots of some of them, so some are cropped parts from larger photos so they go a little fuzzy.
This is one of the fuzzy shots, the champers glass is really cute and for lots of occasions.
A little bit of paper piecing for this one, I added an extra balloon, think it looks better
with two - again a fuzzy shot
This is the mini box and cards I made before I went to the Glitter Pot.
ADORE these colours of papers. I had to get a sheet or 2 of the one on the right as its beautiful. All totally "me" colours - anyone else have to buy 2's of papers? One to use and
one to stroke right?!
This is called a side step card and created a lot of comments. I have a class at the end of July for Forever Friends stamps so I think I will throw in this card fold to the class too, of course making a new sample which will be different.
So last night I was saying to hubby about maybe going to the beach today, not for ages but for lunch and a play in low tide. But now in the cold light of day when I realise we have NO picnic food and I would have to pack and get ready for the entire family to go out the door it doesnt seem such an inviting option. Hmmm me run around like a headless chicken for 2 hours to get us all ready and lunches done, or sit here, make a start on some cards I need to make for tomorrow? Pollycraft have very kindly designed an image for me so I can make cards for the beavers. I cant wait to show you what she has done!! its fabo.
7th July is a BIG date on my calender. Stampin' Up! are opening the registration for the convention in Germany and I am going!! By hook or by crook. I cant wait. everyone that is a demonstrator can go (of course you have to pay) but there are no restrictions of sales or anything so as long as you are a demonstrator you can book. Join now and come too!!
Oh well, better go and get dressed its almost 9!
ps will be back later with Carolyns cards
pps will be back later with a few things for sale too as I am saving for my latest rubber wishes

I read a blog this week that touched my heart. A beautiful little boy called Ethan lost his battle against cancer. You can read the whole story here. Basically the designer of the stamps for Pink Cat Studio has designed these adorable images Cowboy Ethan and his rootin tootin sister Cowgirl Ava. All proceeds to these digi images will go to the make a wish foundation. Not only did I think these images were adorable, I very much wanted to help, so I brought the image bundle and made this card.
As mummy to two adorable boys I can not imagine the pain this family has gone through.I flipped the image of the cowgirl before I printed it. I wanted them to be riding together and their balloons are supposed to look like a heart.

Had a lovely day yesterday with Harveys class and year 2, now feeling bad that I might of infected someone else but without knowing it as I felt fine yesterday. They went to bodium castle, it was a really great day.
Will be back soon with something handmade, been enjoying printing and colouring these past few nights whilst catching sick from Caiden so I have a few images ready to mount, just feeling "blurgh" today so I cant sit up for much concentrated things.

I used the Stampin Up! star punch (really into stars right now and desperately want the nestie stars!) and the ultra huge eyelets from Stampin' Up! which again give it a male feel.
A stamp from old is the stitching stamp and I dont even know who makes it! and the Howdy and cactus is a retired US SU stamp set called "Cowboy kid" ... Love that set.
SO who said making boys cards isnt as fun? I LOVED making this card :) Not sure who it is for, I might just keep it in my shed! How cool would have this card looked with gun shots through it! Now there is an idea for a punch!! LOL almost wanted to go out and shoot this card :) or learn how to make mini lasso's. A native american (See politically correct) would be fab please Greetings Farm!
One last little thing..... I love Stampin' Up!... I hear the new USA catalogue is out soon.... pritty please with sugar on the top would a kind USA demo help me get my mitts on one?? email me firstname.lastname@example.org

I really love this card, so clean, simple.. guess thats my card style all over. I look at the amazing pieces of art all over blogs and wish I could be more like them, but for me this simple style just takes over all the time. Lack of time and stingeyness might play some part too!! ;)

I do have boxes and drawers to sort through, lots of bits and pieces are not where they should be and I am always shuffling my supplies from one box to another one.
My Pritties corner - buttons, flowers, bigshot and my stamp unit. New stamps and favs go on here
These shelves were such a bargain, I love the coloured baskets some hold my glues, h20's, distress inks, rollers and more. Bookcases hold ribbons, ink pads, folders and other oddments.
This is my stamping desk. Its an ugly desk but its very solid so its OK. Again storage needs sorting as I have so many empty places.
This is where the bulk of my wood stamps are. I have a lot of SU stamps under the white table in the other photo. All these wicker drawers need sorting as they are all mixed.
I actually spend very little time in here, but at least it is all stored here. Well not all, I have a rather large pile of regular used stuff. Stuff that I want all the time and that is behind the door in the front room.
Mummy is in the shed, tidying up, I am going to walk about the garden, perhaps I will go on the slide... Wheeeeeeee!! that was fun..... Hmmm on the trampoline now...... boing boing! off again, I'll chase Milo... heee hee this is fun... Hmmm whats that? A plastic basket... I wonder..... Up, Up, Up, yep, its up the top of the slide, now if I just sit in it... and Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! SMASH Waaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Mummmeeeeee!
Conclusion.... Plastic baskets on slides GO REALLY FAST! Shed on heads HURT A LOT and make BIG EGGS ON head... I'm OK now... Mummy was worried... Uncle Robert was impressed... this photo doesnt show the size of my egg head!
Experiment over.... But hang on, where's that basket, I fancy another go! (not likely says Mummy)
