Get Well Soon - Charlotte

A quick make for my friend who managed to damage the ligaments in her leg whilst leaving work during a fire alarm.  I quickly threw this together - which is unusual for me as I can sometimes take me a while to put a card together.

I created the background using a Fiskars roller stamp and added ribbon across the length and width of the card and them popped a Hobby House Kenny K die cut topper and added the greeting and her name with Studio G stamps.

I finally added a wooden flower sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer mist and added a bit of bling on the flower and the corners of the die cut topper.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog.

Scrap it with a Song - We are Young

Today is another Scrap it with a Song Reveal - This week its 'We are Young' by Fun.

Here is what I cam up with:


I knew I was going to use this photo for the challenge as soon as I took it.  I think it's a lovely photo and they are both really smiley for the camera.

Jacob (my grandson) and I were visiting Sophie & Theo at the new house and I took this quick snap as they were watching Fireman Sam (always a big favourite with 3 year olds)

This is what I used to put the layout together:

Patterned Paper – Daisy Bucket – My Little Monsters – Hold my Hand
American Crafts - Red Letterman Alphas
American Crafts – Chipboard Shapes (Oblong/Arrow/Rockets/Dinosaur)
PDQ – Chipboard Pointy Fingers
Stabilo Black Pen

Saddle Up

This week is the POP GALS turn over at Scrap it with a Song with a song I chose which is:
 "Wild Ones" by Flo Rida ft Sia

I didn't want to go with the obvious title (which would have been Wild One) so I after scanning the lyrics many times I decided to go with 'Saddle Up' after remembering I have photographs of my son and I horseriding many years ago.

Here is what I created
The photos were taken in September 2004 on the one and only camping trip we took as a family.
We camped and a site called 'Park Foot' in Ullswater, in the Lake District, UK.  At the top of the site leading to the fells they offered horseriding.  My husband was too 'chicken' to have a go!

My son and I really enjoyed it and it was lovely to be trotting across the fells on horseback despite the fact it was not a particularly nice day in terms of the weather.

I used the following to put the layout together:

My Minds Eye - Quite Contrary - That's My Boy Leafy Tree Tops Paper
Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Green
American Crafts - Foam Shapes- Leaves & Sun
American Crafts Thickers Foam - Giggles - Light Blue
American Crafts Thickers Vinyl - Spirnkles - Orange
Kars Wooden Shapes - Leaves
Papermania - Kraft Labels
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Cuttlebug Folder - Dots
Hessian/Canvas Ribbon
Acrylic Paint - Brown
Staples
Whispers Pen - Brown
