You Are Getting Sleeeeeeepppppyyyyy...................

Well howdi doodie my lovelies how are you all on this glorious morning? Up here in the north east its looking promising......fingers crossed no rain today so have pegged washing out woooo hooooo.
This morning I have something a bit different....for me that is lol. I've been hopping around blogland doing my commenting & I have been seeing gorgeous images & thought I really should get mine printed & make a card. So I did last night..........actually I saw the sketch first & that pushed me even more........
Shall I just shush & show you the card.........yeah me thinks so.......

This is 'I'm Not Tired' by Pollycraft....isn't he just lush....
He is from the 'Swings & Slides' collection set 2........you can buy him singular or like I did in a set which works out cheaper..........yes CHEAPERRRRR, we love that word dont we lol.......well I do..lol!!!

This is the sentiment the stamp is from a magnetic stamp set that has been in my stash for sooooooooo long!! I stamped it onto ribbed kraft card & did some faux stitching & folded a bit of ribbon up & stapled....I quite like it to be honest......mmmmm snazzy lol.

These images are soooooooo easy to colour & you can just keep them simple so ideal if you need a quick card. I even used my Promarkers..........I know what a shock to the system that was!!!!!!!
For detailed work which requires in depth shading I do prefer my copics........to be honest I prefer copics all the time lol.......as I realised when I used my PM's last night!!!!!!!!! 

Now this is only my 2nd Pollycraft card, I made 1 last year I had only been crafting for a few months & already I needed my craft room in the garden extended....... So I was crafting in a litchen for a week & half & this was my 1st pollycraft image & a freebie...........
I remember feeling soooo proud of this when I made it lol.........you dont realise how you progress the more you craft do you.........

Back to my now card lol. I followed the fab sketch over at Pollycraft & if you want a card but dont want a lot of embellies on it then this is the sketch...........wow I loved it & will be using it for other cards, I soooo enjoyed making this!!!
You will be seeing more Pollycraft cus I really enjoyed this.......so watch this space.......OMG another addiction I see in the distance...........

Well I'm gonna get a cuppa & some jam on toast for my brekkie.....hubby is on doing it for me bless him lol.
Me loves him ya know!!!!!!!!
Will be popping by to see all you fabulous peeps.
Thank you so much for stopping by my lovelies mmwah.

Gorgeous sweetie! Thanks for joining us at Pollycraft!!

KraftyKoolKat said...

Both of these cards are gorgeous sweetie. As is your door hanger. I have viewed all your cards and posts that I have missed over the past few days. So glad it isn't as serious as first thought with Megan but I do hope they find out what is wrong soon. You do not mention your own health? I hope you are feeling better? Sorry I haven't been around but we may be looking to move and I have been bombing up and down the country viewing properties.

Hugs
