DT Time, and some News

Before I tell you about this week's DT post just wanted to let you all know my daughter is getting married on the 5th October this year. So I am busy trying to design her invites,favour boxes,evening invites and believe you me Lisa is so fussy. So its all go just wanted to share that with you all.

Morning guys well wanted to make sure I did not forget to post this today so I have scheduled this one.
Over at Anything goes,this week the theme is,manly so for the man or son in your life why not get your thinking caps on and see what you come up with,as we all know how hard men's cards are.

Well this is what I came up with and its the first time I have ever made a stepper card just never been able to get the hang of them and this one was already cut for me so shows how daft I am,

So there you go my first stepper,I covered the card with some kraft card,then I stamped,the ruler onto some white card added that to one of the steps. Then i stamped the ruler again and cut it up and matted onto kraft card. Then I stamped the chain, etc.,onto Kraft card on the side,then stamped the clocks and hands and then cut out and placed on the side of the card.  The back is again stamped,on to card then cut out.

These stamps are from Kanban. If you want to look for any goodies,you can always pop along to the craft den to see what Lynn has in stock,the link is HERE
So there you go,that is my man's card hope too see what you all come up with if Alfie leaves my side for a minute that is,he is on my lap now as I am typing this ,tell you I have never known such a faithful,and loyal dog in all my life he sure is a great comfort.

Just a card to make you smile,before I sign off,its from the La Pashe CD the best of la pashe,2012
The bubbles,are just drops of glossy accents,then just added a ribbon,some card and cosmic shimmer pink pearl drops.
HE HE love this cd,thanks for everything guys you are the best,and hope to have some candy soon just to say how much I appreciate you all,love massive hugs Cheryl xxx
