You nerd!

Recently it was mine & my husband's wedding anniversary. I was inspired by the one layer card week at Less is More where the challenge was to make a masculine card. Unfortunately our anniversary was after the challenge deadline so I couldn't join in. I was also inspired by Addicted to CAS where the code word this week is 'Chevron'. My husband is a bit of a computer nerd so I thought this quite suited him ...

I'm also entering this card at CASology where the cue card this week is 'Line'.

I was quite excited to see that 2 of my recent cards have been challenge winners! :)
My 'Home is where the heart is card here  was a weekly winner at CAS colours & sketches.
And the cute hamster card, 'I wheelie like you' here was a challenge favourite at Tag You're it
It's great to know that people like my cards & once again, thank you for all your lovely comments.

You're spec-tacular

I had a bit of a craft buying splurge recently & one of my treats was the 'Incognito' stamp set by Paper Smooches. It has some great stamps of specs & moustaches with some cool sentiments. I made a simple card using this set together with a matching spectacles die:

The specs were die cut from black card & I used Stampin' Up Candy Dots for the eyes. A bit of colour from the red striped Simple Stories 'Snap Color Vibe' paper adds to the funkiness!

Life's been a bit hectic here recently; my daughter had her school prom & a week later, a 'graduation' ceremony to celebrate the end of her secondary school life.

Now I may be slightly biased but I think she looks stunning. Or dare I say, quite spec-tacular :)

Thank you for popping by & for all your lovely comments, I really appreciate them.
