A bit of fun at CCT

This week at Cute Card Thursday our challenge is to show us some fun times!  Our sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up, please stop by the CCT blog to read about the prize and see what the rest of the DT have made.

I have made a little 5" square card with various Marianne Design goodies, and being for a boy I stayed clear of the flowers!  The image is skateboard Don coloured with my Copics and cut out with a die in set CR1223, and I used a die in the same set to cut the edge of the paper scrap down the side.  The papers are from the Garden Party pack, and I've inked and distressed the edges. I die cut the star behind my image from cordinations cardstock so I could distress with an emery board, using the biggest die from the set CR1226.  The text I die cut with the new Charming Alphabet dies COL1397 then finished of with the narrow cream ric rac and MD domed metallic gems.

It's been a busy few days here with meetings to try and arrange for Mum to come home from the hospital.  Most have gone well, but a few hiccups in getting support for me to help with showering etc and a granny sitter for when I need to be away for more than an hour or so.  She is doing much better and actually starting to become more mobile so I will have to take over her physio too as the waiting list for home physio visits is long .. .. ..  Next week I should be taking delivery of a hospital bed and other equipment, then fingers crossed.  She sleeps more nowadays so I should be able to find time to craft, once we settle into a routine.  So, I am still an infrequent blogger and am sorry for not visiting/commenting very much, but I do appreciate all the visits you make to see what I've been making.


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment.
