My Last Week....

As you may have noticed already my pregnancy ticker seems to be ticking by really quite quickly! In fact I'm booked in for a caesarean section next Monday, providing he doesn't arrive before then that is! That's only a week today! So I'm making the most of this week and that fact that its half term so I have my little boy at home with me too.

I've not really made many cards since Christmas. Partly due to the snow and my craft room is way too cold! and that I don't really have the funds to replenish my stash at the moment, so I've just been taking it easy! I have however made a few cards that I thought I'd share with you today.
First up, is this Tardis card I made for my friends Son. No surprises, he's a Dr Who fan! My friend Helen made a Tardis card a while back, which is what inspired me. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. I hope he liked it too!
This is the card I've made to give to my little boy, when his baby brother arrives next week! I think I'll give it as a card from the baby rather than from me and hubby. I've made a big 8x8" card, and have used my favourite Penny Black image. The font is cut from my Sizzix Round-A-Bout alphabet.
This is the card I made for hubby for Valentine's Day! I was inspired by a card I'd seen on SCS a while ago, although as it turns out that mine is nothing like it! The stamp was a freebie from a magazine which I've stamped onto red pearlescent card with white chalk ink. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.
This card was inspired very much by Beth at Big Sky Paper and Design. I was trying to achieve some basic cards for men but without the use of images/rubber stamps. The papers were a download from Summertime Designs. I really love the combination of the black, grey and lime! Very masculine!
Again, using the same papers, I've used my favourite layout of the moment for this card!

Well that's all from me for now! Hopefully this week will give me a chance to do some blog hopping and maybe even get to leave a few comments! I'll update again when my little man makes his appearance!
