I'm Back with 2.....yes 2 cards!!!

Good afternoon my lovelies how are you all? Well I'm back from our little break.......which turned out to be very little as Natalie ended up unsettled & Monday morning we had to cut our hol short & go pick her up. When she was home she then had an epileptic seizure so it was actually a good thing we picked her up....so cus of her been unwell I've not been on the internet. This morning however I have managed to make 2 cards which is sooooo unlike me, normally I never get time to make 2 in one day but images were coloured already & one card is a shimple one for a man lol...... Anyway I better get on as I have Natalie's bedding to dry, she loves to give me lots of washing lol.
The 2 cards are Pollycraft ones.......1 is for the Pollycraft challenge & last weeks card got me in the Top 3, woooooooo hooooooooooo thanks ladies soooooo much mmwah.

This is Sonney Honeycloud 'My Way' & I did it myyyyyyyyyyy waaaaayyyyyyyy.....by cropping her before printing so I could just have her heed lol....isn't she fab!!!
PollyCrafts challenge is set by preggy-anna Emma lol & its 'Recycle'....well I couldnt decide so I added 2 recycling bits.........lol....

My first bit is of an old curtain, its the binding bit around the edge, I stamped it with a wood backed stamp off my shelf. Wording was stamped with Walnut distress ink.....I also stuck 2 Tim Holtz safety pins either end.

My next bit of recycle I have to thank my hubby for as I mentioned the challenge to him & he took apart his old watch as he hadn't worn it for years & it wasnt working properley lol. So I cut a flower out of a cork sheet & then stuck the watch face in the middle & then added a pretty brad to the centre & some stickles to the flower but you cant see the sparkle much.........I loves my hubster ya know.....he hee...
Paper used is Bo Bunny 'Timepiece'
Challenge I'm Entering little ickle one......

My next card is this little dude.....can you call a robot dude......'Robo-Dude' lol. He is from the Critters & Cogs range & is called 'Made With Love'......isnt he metal-lishious.....

This is a wooden heart which I inked with Red Brick distress ink & then heat embossed with UTEE a couple of times.....oh & threaded bakers twine through it. Sentiment was done on my new Dymo thingy-Ma-Bob which hubby saw in a shop & thought I could make use of it.......it was a fab surprise I'm VERY easily pleased lol.

This is the card.......an EXTREMELY simples one for me which as you know is really hard but Cards For Men have a simples challenge......so thought this dude would be perfect for this challenge.

Challenge I'm Entering this in.....

Thank you soooooooo much for all the fabulous comments I sooooo appreciate it from the bottom of my heart I will be round to visit you all later....I've mished ya al!!
Lotsa huggles to all of you xoxoxoxo
