OK! My Bad - Not Posted In 2 Months!

Well here we are in August and I just haven't got around to posting for 2 months!  Haven't done an awful lot of crafting as I've been so busy.  A week in the Lake District in May, plus a week at home with Mark.  Lots of charity events at work including a 10 mile walk last month right in the middle of the heatwave we've been having.  I have another week in the Lake District coming up in September and it's not coming fast enough!

Ok! So here are a few odds and ends I've worked on over the last few months.

Just something silly while trying out my new flex markers :)

A sympathy card, not something I enjoy doing, stamped and coloured with distress markers

This was a bit of a challenge lol!  I had a request for an 50th birthday Elvis themed card, as the lady in question was having an Elvis themed birthday bash.  The actual card shape was made by welding several shapes together in the cricut craft room, the gorgeous photo I found on line and the roses are from I am roses I think.  Overall I think the black and white worked really well :) 

I am the designated charity champion in our store, along with another colleague,  so each month we have to come up with a different charity event.  Aprils was a breakfast hamper raffle, I make posters for all our events this is Aprils. It's always fun to try and come up with a different theme each month :)

These three are all coloured with promarkers, first and last images are from Wee Stamps and the center one is from  All that Scraps

This next card was for my Dads birthday, the ships wheel, sentiment and ship stamps are from Crafters Companion, the stamp used for the wooden panel background is by Bo Bunny I think, the texture for the wood was created by dragging ink pads over the cardstock and the I stamped the boards over the top.  The scene was created using Tim Holtz distress markers on watercolour paper.  The brass plate is from Docrafts.
 This card was for father's day for my Dad, I used the south western cart on my cricut and used a cut downloaded from the cricut project site, I love how vibrant this is :)

Card for my brother-in-law, he is a keen photographer and when out and about taking photos he has what we call a NO! Dad hat lol!  As his kids always shout NO! DAD!  when he puts it on, so here's a cute bear wearing a No! Dad! hat lol!

A quick scrapbook page of our night out bowling and then a meal at an all you an eat Chinese buffet YUM!  Shame I've just started Weight Watchers again lol!  Pics of my hubby, Sister, her hubby and kids :) 

A quick scrapbook page of the Easter goodies I made, the cookies were so good!!

Card for my nephew, used the robots cart and played around with embossing boards and folders to get some additional texture.
 There is more to come, I just have to fiddle around with the photos so they don't take forever to load!
