Arrrrrgh Where is the time going????

Will somebody be so kind as to add a few hours to my day for me, do some of my chores and cook the tea? I am scrabbling around like a mad woman trying to get cards finished for sat night, my daughter joins brownies tonight which takes another chunk of time, and I have 4 cards to make as well not for the party Pressure!!!!

I have made a few to fit challenges here they are:-


This week there is a sketch to follow, and I made mine a thankyou card.I coloured the image with promarkers and used some patterned paper from a k&co pad. The flowers are prima and I added some glitter brads to the centre, the sentiment is hero arts.
Last weeks challenge was "Glitter" and I made the top 5! Yippee! Thankyou.x
Thanks for Looking.x

Basic Grey Challenge

This week the theme over on the Basic Grey Challenge Blog is "Chipboard". There are some cracking dt cards and entries. Heres mine:-
I coloured the image with promarkers. I inked around some of the cardstock and added ribbon and some flowers. The basic grey elements are 2 patterned papers from the sugared pad, and the chipboard element is the word You. I have wanted to make a pink based male card for a while and I quite like the result. I do like layers and lots on a card.
Heres the inside:-Thanks for stopping by and Looking.x

I love the way you do the inside as well as the outside. My DH is already complaining how much the cards cost to send as they go out by weight, so I will have to copy you on only a few "special" cards. I love the idea though.

Tara said...

Brilliant cards Joey! I especially love the pink male card you've created for the BG challenge, it really works! xx

Holly said...

Hi Joey! I love your first card so much. The image is adorable but the background paper you used is wonderful!
I really love how you finished the inside of your second card. I need to remember to do that more often!

I know what you mean Joey, certainly feels like there's not enough hours in the day at the moment, and I'm not even under any pressure to get cards done, but the days are just flying by.
Both cards are wonderful, love them. Never seen the image on the first card before, really like it. Joanne x

Both of your cards are wonderful. I love the birthday card and everything you added to it. It is a great boy card with the pink! Thanks for playing at BG Challenges!

Chris said...

Hi Joey, your cards are both fantastic! Love the images and your great colouring, wonderful decoration on the inside and the chipboard element is perfect. So much great texture and dimension. I think I'm the same as you and need a lot more than 24 hours in a day at the moment LOL! Hope you're well and everything's going ok. Thanks for all the wonderful comments you always leave for me, they're always so much appreciated. Take care, hugs, Chris x
