Over at The Crafty Pad there are several cute New Release Images!

This post is to showcase today's New Release
 "Hedgehog Harry With Balloons"
Harry With Balloons & the other New Releases in the set are all available from 

I decorated a gift bag with Harry as I couldn't get him to fit on my card 
just the way I wanted him to!
This image just screamed out for bright rainbow colours!


Here's the preview of the image

 Phew!!!


Here's the gift bag again with the little tag I made on show!
I printed Harry out three times & coloured him up, then fussy cut each one out!
I attached two of the images to my bag, with foam dimensionals,
 then cut the balloons off of the third one & added them to the tag in the same way!
The tag was cut with a Sizzix Original die!

I've attached the tag with a little piece of bakers twine.

The images were coloured with Promarkers & the DP's 
are from the K & Company Hopscotch Pad!


I also added some little buttons from my stash!


Here's a closer look at the tag & images!


Harry is really soaring here!
I used to always dream about going on a balloon flight & I 
finally managed it for my 45th Birthday a few years back!
It was incredible!

A Card For A Real Card


Good Morning Bloggers, is it that time already???
Indeed it is!
Time to pop on over to the Dude Time Doodles Challenge Blog
Pick up this month's Freebie & try to 
Win yourself a Guest Designer spot for a month!
use the Freebie to create a card for a Dude,
 it can be funny, cheeky or even a little bit naughty!
You have just one week to upload your creation to the challenge blog!

The Dude & Dudettes love having different playmates each month!
Sometimes, we like them so much we ask them to stay!!!

This weeks Freebie is Mo Stooge
he's already available in the store so if for some reason 
you miss him, you can still buy him!

Without further ado, here's my card!


I made a Playing Card Card for my Brother In Law.
I used an A6 Linen Embossed card blank.
As you can see I added Mo the right way up, then added 
him the other way up just like a face card in a pack of playing cards.
I coloured him up with a mixture of Copics & Promarkers.
I added the name to both sides of the card & just a little bit of Card Candi.
The corners of the card were rounded off with a large corner punch,
to make it look like a playing card.


On the back of the card I added a Union Jack Design Paper
 from Southfield Stationers. I love their papers as they are
excellent quality & very reasonable!
The inside of the card has a simple paper insert.
Need more inspiration???

I do have a card for you but first!!!!

Simple huh!
What's that??? You don't own a Crafty Pad image?????
Shame on you!!! lol 
Don't fret, you can pick up a freebie or two from 
the challenge blog here

Okay, now for my card!!!

I was asked to make a Thank You card or several as it would happen,
I won't go into the details but,here's what I came up with!

It's  a simple little A6 white linen embossed card  blank 
from Southfield Stationers, with a plain white insert.
The image & sentiment are both from Bugaboo
and were just perfect for my needs!


This was such a simple make,
The image was so simple to colour,
I used a single promarker!
Then, I cut it out with an oval nestie,
matted onto a scalloped oval nestie in pink,
punched out butterflies & leaves from the scraps,
added a little pink ribbon, which began life white 
but I coloured that with the promarker too.
A couple of gems to finish off & Hey Presto!
As I was making a number of  these little babies, 
I rang the changes a little & played about with the colours etc
below are just a few of the others!


Hopefully these cards will also act as a reminder to the recipients 
to "Check Their Boobies"!
Early Detection is so important with Breast Cancer & it's so very important
to check yourself out regularly! 
That goes for the guys too!

I hope you like my little Thank You cards!
