Sweet Treats!

I'm always saying this but I don't know where the time goes, the first week of my Easter break has already past and although I planned to get some major crafting in, it just hasn't happened.  The children have been busy all week and I suppose that lots of my time has gone by playing Taxi, how lovely it is that they're making the most of their break, going out instead of staying home like they usually do, my babies are growing up fast!

Kerry, had a little brain wave yesterday and decided to give us all a calorie free Easter gift from Ladybug Crafts Ink, how great is that! There are so many beautiful cling stamps to choose from and whilst you're there, why not take a look at the stunning range of digis too, you don't even have to wait very long for delivery where they are concerned either.

Here's a card I made using one of the new Teenager Digis,  First car Josh. it all started with me playing with my xcut stamp dies, I was trying to see if I could use them to cut a shaped card like I do with my nestabilities. Yay!!! it does, I just folded my card and cut close to the edge but then cut another full stamp in my DP. Now, it was my sons 16th birthday on Thursday, you might remember that I used Xbox Josh for his card made a while back. I know that this is way in advance but to be honest I was just playing with an idea, I coloured Josh up, added a reg  to the number plate,I used one of those date stamps,was a good job that I used my copic to ink the stamp as the first time I placed it I did it upside down. LOL! used the blender to remove it before going in again. The postage mark is part of a Forever Friends set I bought the other year.

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Allsorts 149, Bingo diagonal line from top left,
With Attitude 10, Anything goes,
Bloggers Challenge, To die for,
Cardmadfairies 30, Die cuts/Digis,
JKOC1, Anything goes,
Cards for Men 7, Great outdoors,
MIM 83, Anything goes,

Happy Easter!
Thanks for stopping by,
