Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Remember Space Hoppers?

I needed to make a card for my nephews birthday. He'll be 22 on Saturday. I've got plenty of male stamps but they are either a bit too cutesy for a young lad or more suited to old fossils,lol. I've got a couple of cars but he's already had them so i went to scour the net. I googled digi stamps, male, images and eventually found THIS ONE  from Imag-e-nation.
What a hoot, and a bargain at £1.00. It takes me back to my childhood and that was when the original ones came out. The caption was from  Ginger's House  and i added the Hoppy Birthday before printing out the image.
Finished off with some of Torico's cute digi buttons, ( link in my side bar) coloured in and glazed with Glossy Accent's before cutting out. I think you'll be seeing loads of these on my cards, especially ones for men.

Well, that's it for today as I'm off to Hobbycraft.  Partly because i need more Glossy Accents but mainly because I'm going out for a big scoff tonight and i need to walk the 4 mile round trip.

Challenges.....Belli  challenge, the letter S ( space hopper)
                     Top Tip 35,  use 2 or more stamps.

  4. Hi Di

    What a great card!!

    As you say this age bracket is a bit neglected in the image department. But this one is ideal .. .. and your sentiment too.

    My Sister had an orange space hopper and we spent many a happy hour bouncing up and down the lawn on it (plus throwing it as hard as we could to see how high we could make it bounce). Simple things please simple minds and we haven't changed much !! LOL!!

    I hope the weather stayed decent for that route march.

    Love Jules xx
