Speeding in with a bit of Need for Speed

Oh my things have been so hectic around here lately.  I'll update you at the bottom of the post  if you wish to read on.  

So as you'll have guessed my crafting time has been limited but I grabbed some time today and would you believe I made three cards!  I've got two to show you today as they are both for the Less is More challenge this week which is Need for Speed and before you all shout at me what have I spotted?  Yep it's one layer and what have I done?  Yep definitely not one layer so back to the drawing board!!  There I was so pleased with myself.  Ha Ha. 

So off I rush back to my super tidy craft room.  (One of my lack of having crafted recently.  I spent a day giving it a really good going over.  It's sooooo tidy now)  And because I want to keep it tidy well everything was put away wasn't it!   There are some arguments for a messy craft room! 

Here's my rescue card.  Using another image from Need for Speed the Speedboat.  It's cresting the waves of Happy Birthday wishes.  I stamped the boat in Cherry Cobbler and coloured with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.  The birthday sentiment is from Happiest Birthday Wishes and are stamped in Marina Mist.  

So the first card is Bashful Blue card stock with a mat of Marina Mist.  I stamped the car in Marina Mist then kept on stamping another 2 times without reinking. Then coloured the car with my Marina Mist Stampin' Write Marker.  I sponged a dust cloud around the car as it was speeding in Crumb Cake with a touch of Real Red.  The sentiment is Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped in Marina Mist.  The main panel is popped up on Dimensionals. 

The next card is a Father's Day Card. 

I've used a 6" by 6" Night of Navy card stock.  A More Mustard panel popped up on DImensionals.  I added a smaller panel of Whisper White with the jet from Need for Speed stamped in Basic Black and coloured with my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker.   Dad is a sneaky little preview!!  It's from a new stamp set from the new catalogue out in July - Outline Alphabet & Numbers.  I can see this being so useful.  The Happy Father's Day sentiment is also from Teeny Tiny Wishes, another fabulously useful set.  I punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  

Wow 4 cards in one day!  A record!  Hopefully you'll see the other card tomorrow. 

So why has my crafting time been so limited.  Well first of all my son has now moved up into 3rd year but before that had 2 days activity.  The second day he was paintballing and I got a call at lunch time to go collect him and take him to A & E.  Cut and grazed knee requiring to be stitched.  Four hours later we limped out.  Me too as I think my bum was numb sitting so long!  We've been back to the hospital this week for it to be checked and he gets the stitch out on Saturday.  

Then as it's June every activity my daughter has and including school all have end of term events.  I'm losing track as to where I'm supposed to be and at what times.  I need a P.A. to work out all the logistics! 

And lastly we got one of these on Saturday. 

Her name is Jess and she is a CavaPoo.  Her Mum is a King Charles Cavalier and her Dad a Miniature Poodle. She's all black except for a few white hairs on her little chin.  At 8 weeks old she is keeping us on toes day and night.  Did you know that the birds are up and awake at 3.30am?  

Hope you've survived this extra long post.  I've had blogger starvation!! 

See you (hopefully) tomorrow.  x
