Sunday Slot

Just need to share a card and my 1st of the month pages today before everything goes bonkers with the release of the first game at AAA Cards tomorrow.

My card is for The Male Room's current challenge - Give Us A Giggle.  I went searching on the web for a suitable digital image as all my male themed stamps were not quite what I wanted. I knew as soon as I saw this image it was perfect, reminds me so much of how my boys used to tease each other when they were small.  Who am I kidding? It's how they still torment each other now!! Some things never change.  Anyway it makes me giggle when I think about it, so I'm hoping it will you too.

Promarkers: cool grey 5, leaf green, poppy, azure
Flexmarkers: blush, dusky pink, tea rose, nutmeg
Paper: doodlebug, kraft in color 
Die: Lil'inker, anytime tags
Embellishments: doodlebug sprinkles, day to day assortment

A day in my life - 1st May 

This month I decided to just go with the day and see what it had to offer. It may seem mundane at the moment, but maybe some time in the future a descendent of mine might find it fascinating to see what people got up to in the long ago distant time of 2014.  Also I find it quite fun to look back on myself, helps me appreciate and be grateful for my life.

Here's my pages:

And here's a close up of the butterfly button embellishment. This is a format I keep returning to in both scrapbooking and card making. 

Oh and in case you're wondering about the sheep each month I'm using the pictures from last year's Thomas Joseph calendar - far too cute to throw away!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today, your visit is very welcome.  Enjoy what's left of your weekend.
