Inspirational Post at Bearly Mine Designs

So it's that time of the month again for me to do my Inspirational Post over at Bearly Mine Designs and I decided to use one of the new digital paper packs available now in the store and it is the Black and White Essentials.

Donna has created some amazing new papers recently and I love the fact that myself and the rest of the Design Team get first dibs at using them.
This card I've created was done in one night with my hubby picking the great Digital Stamp from Bugaboo for one of his work collegue's 50th Birthday party we were invited too. I decided to go with the black and white so the blue I used in colouring the stamped image would really pop off the card.
I'm also happy to say that the card was a hit, he loved him.
The products I've used are
Bearly Mine Designs pp's
American Crafts cs
Bugaboo Digital Image
Basic Grey enamel dots
SU ink, punch & stamp
White gel pen
Black chalk ink
The challenges I would like enter this into are

Creative Moments - Anything Goes/For the Boys
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes/DT call
Well that's it for me tonight, off to watch one of my favourite TV shows (which hopefully will have another season but at this stage it's not) A Place To Call Home.
Have a great time and I hope you all like what I've created and will be back in the next couple of days for a next challenge.
Happy creating.

One for the BOYS

Well I'm running really late with this months challenge post, but first week back at work and it was 7 days straight. Mum was still sick so not only working 7 days straight but also doing everything at home before & after work as well as taking hubby back and forth to work as he was also working 8 days straight when he returned to work.

So here we are 9 days into the month and I've finally got the time to sit down and up date my blog.

I had a lot of fun creating this card as it's my first attempt and a pop up box card and I made it especially for my hubby so the timing was perfect for this challenge over at Bearly Mine Challenges.

As always we have amazing sponsors

Marianne Design have kindly donated the following prize:
