Simple male card for Makeesha's challenge

That would be a simple card, not simple male....! (boom boom ;)) This is for my brother's birthday next month and I CASED the idea from this lovely creation here...isn't the bunting cool?! The layout is inspired by Makeesha's sketch challenge all in all I've just used everyone elses ideas!

Here's my card:
I've used all SU! supplies. The colours are so saffron, tangerine tango, pacific point and riding hood red. The numbers are from the Timeless Type sizzlits dies - fabulous for cards and scrapping.
Please let me know if you make any bunting inspired cards as I'd love to see them - the monkey from Fox and Friends would look cute hanging from bunting don't you think?
Thanks for visiting!

Stamp with Us Sketch Challenge

Good evening!
Stamp with Us have this sketch challenge for this fortnight:

So this is my sketch inspired card:

Stamps: Vintage vogue (can't believe I almost didn't get this set...what was I thinking?!), on your birthday Ink & card: so saffron, rich razzleberry (yipee they're staying in the new catalogue!), orchid opulence, whisper white Other: square punches, razzleberry polka dot ribbon, filigree brads, clear rhinestone, silver brads.

Well, I'm off to have a cuppa & put my feet up now! I played hockey today (first time for nearly a year) & my back & legs are already feeling sore!....I should just stick to stamping...

Anyway have a good w/e - it's apparently very peaceful today where my family are in the UK with no planes overhead....but of course not good for those with travel plans....

Stamp with Us Colour Challenge

Happy long weekend!
I had a quiet child free day today which meant that I could indulge myself in the world of stamping without interuptions, such a treat!
I've been meaning to make an easel card for ages, so decided to get on and do it (following Beate's video tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers). I used this as the basis of my card for this fortnights Stamp with Us colour challenge. I used all bold brights, which actually made a nice change & isn't that what challenges are all about?

Here's my card:

Stamps: Upsy Daisy, Heard from the Heart, Polka dot background Ink & card: pink passion, green galore, only orange, whisper white Other: button latte, ribbon originals dress up, polka dot embossing folder

Thanks for stopping by!
