Biker Father's Day card

Afternoon all

Hope you're all well! Here's the first of a few father's day cards I've made. It's for a friend to give her father who is big into motorbikes. 
I used this cute image from Di's Digi Stamps - he's called Biker Bear and he's currently on sale at $1! Bargain! It's difficult enough to find a nice biker related image, but this fit the bill perfectly.

Pretty Grafik papers
LOTV sentiment
Martha Stewart Star Border Punch
Dew Drops from Ribbon Girl 
Ribbon from Stash

Flamingo :)

Good evening everyone

I hope you're all well! Life here is stressful at the moment, but I got my college results on Monday and I have a GPA of 89 right now, so I'm pretty happy with that at least :) 

When I saw Squirrel's Random Challenge had the theme of "wild things" I instantly thought of flamingos for some reason! I love flamingos :D Here's a pic of me last year in Orlando with some flamingos. Hottest day ever, about 11 am and I'd already sweated off all my makeup haha!

I searched for a good while to find a nice flamingo image that I was happy with - if anyone has any recommendations for flamingo images, send them my way ;) 

I went with this gorgeous chap from 2 Cute Ink

Crafty Friends Challenge - Inspired by a book

Good afternoon everybody!

We're having some seriously lovely weather here in Ireland, I'm back inside now as it's too hot to sit out anymore! 

Anyway back to crafty stuff :) Today over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog, our latest challenge has gone up - the theme this time is 
INSPIRED BY A BOOK.

We have two fabulous sponsors:

AND


I used a Sherri Baldy image for my card: 

I think it's pretty obvious that my book inspiration is Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. I've always loved this book, and the sequel, Through the Looking Glass. They're both so delightfully weird, which pretty much sums up how I like to think of myself :P Also, Alice's character also reminds me so much of Luna Lovegood, and she's my favourite Harry Potter character ever! (I'm aware that I relate everything in my life back to how it would fit in Harry Potter, and I am so OK with that!) I'm also tea-obsessed! 
Ingredients
Adorable Alice from Sherri Baldy
Maja Design Papers
LDRS Lovely View die
Rose trim from Live and Love Crafts
Cheesecloth from Noor Design
Lace and charm from Ribbon Girl
Red ribbon and pearl embellihsment from stash
Coloured with Copics
Stickles

TEA! Always tea :) I get headaches when I haven't had any tea for a while - the first week back at school when I was in school was always desperate, after a whole summer of drinking tea, I used to be in bits without it all day!

Thanks for looking and do head over to Crafty Friends Challenge to see the beautiful cards made by my talented team-mates :)
