Sorry - I forgot!!

"we" forgot to send a Birthday card to my OH's dad ! how can we forget lol I have a room dedicated to making bloomin cards? 
So I made this quick card to say sorry and wish him a belated Happy Birthday.
The image is a freeby from Dustin Pike, pre coloured I just made it into a 3d sheet and added the word "sorry" in PSP.
I think the papers are Making Memories

Enchanted Castle

Hope you are all enjoying the nice weather and your Easter hols! I have spent a little time card making today and might just sneak this card into the Papertake Weekly challenge before it closes.

The theme is "Spots and Stripes" Isn't this mushroom castle the cutest? It's a new image from the Paper Shelter. I printed out the pre coloured image used stickles on the spots of the mushrooms and also outlined the piccy with a clear Sakura Glaze pen to add subtle embossing.
The papers are from my scraps box and are a free download Shabby Princess Festival
The little mushroom embellishment has been hanging arouund for ages so I am glad I found it a new home LOL
The Sentiment is computer generated
So there we have it a quicky card which is unusual for me!!
 I am struggling to get a decent piccy lately I might have to make a light box.....

The Paper Shelter Challenge 8 - Anything Goes! Card or Recipe Box

This weeks challenge at The Paper Shelter is Anything Goes! Let your imagination run wild LOL!
I decided to make a card holder for the cards I made for BARC my local dog rescue centre
I have used Bee Bear again for this weeks challenge. I printed out the pre coloured one to save time as I spent ages faffing about with the Card Box. I added a little stickles glitter to his wings and antenni.
 I designed the template for the box myself by making a tiny prototype out of scrap paper just to see if the thoughts I had would actually work with card AND they did! and then had my techi clever O/H draw it in a  programme called Sketch Up.
 It is still a work in progress and needs a little tweek but all in all it came together really well I think. It could also be used for a recipe card index or seed packets if you made some dividers. As you can see my 6x6" (approx) cards sit nicely in it.I have shown it with 4 cards displayed but there is room for around 20 cards depending on how well embellished they are.

I have used the Disney scrap book papers again as I think they work so well with this image
Punched and shaped the flowers and added glitter to the centres. The little butterflies are Anita's Dimension Stickers
I have used nesties to cut the scalloped circle and Fiskars punch Threading Water for the scalloped edges
Ribbon from stash
I forgot to upload the picture of the card set all wrapped and tagged up ready for the tombolla stall, trust me lol.
Good luck with this weeks challenge and remember if you use a Paper Shelter Image you will be eligable to be entered into the prize draw for a £15 voucher to be used in store

I was late posting again! I will be sent to the naughty step ...
