Hubby's away...so I'm playing!

My hubby had to head over to Sydney yesterday for a training session... started yesterday and continued today.  He's coming back late Sunday evening... so it's ME time!!!!  I get to watch what I want on TV and with having to craft on the dinning table due to my room being out of commission.. I don't have to pack up till late tomorrow.  So once the chores were done today - grocery shopping, washing, dusting and vacuuming.... I got to play again.  So since last night a total of 6 cards done.  Some I can't share yet but I did make some cards for hubby's 60th (next Sunday)

I started with this one last night....


I finally broke out the Crazy Cat stamps and Dies.  I started by stamping the Geometric stamps (from a Grace Taylor set I picked up for .47cents.  Score!) I used 3 colours from two Altenew ink cubes...the warm greys and purples.   I stamped and coloured the cat with my new Touchnew Markers.  The matching die cuts very close to the stamping.  Looks awesome.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  

This was to be the card I gave him till I saw an awesome card on FB by Emma from Emmascraftycards and I just had to CASE it!


The image is a digital stamp from Little Miss Muppet Stamps and is called Mustache Too.  It's totally awesome as you add the mustache and cap or not as you want,    I used the computer to add the sentiment.  Finished with a few red stars.  Although my hubby doesn't have a mustache and looks more like 45 than turning 60 I think he'll appreciate this one... and the first one will go into my stash of cards.

I got some DT cards done and a couple of swap cards - one for my NZ technique swap group and my CCC card for October that is heading off to Spain.  Once they are received I'll be able to share.  Tomorrow more Christmas cards plus a lady from work wants a card the same as one I did a while back. 

Nearly bed time now, so I'll stop, have a hot drink and take myself off to bed with my Kindle for awhile. 

Hope you all are having as much fun creating as I am this weekend.

Your Crazy Cat card is so fun, and I love your mustache man! I love this sentiment, too! Good for you to get all those chores done with 'reward' time for crafting...way to go!
