Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks....hope you are all enjoying your weekend and finding time to fit in a bit of per usual I am off out to my cubbyhole......hubby is getting ready to start painting...a tad grumpy today he is....and after my expensive faux pas with the car.....I can't afford a visit to the divorce lawyers as best I stay out of the grumpiness allowed in the cubby and what a glorious morning....the sun has got his hat on today......hope he is visiting where you are too.
The challenge this week on Daring Cardmakers has been set by Rein and boy....excuse the pun...did I enjoy this one.


I knew what I was going to do the minute I saw it and reached for
My Nitwit Collections....Little Men
I love this collection and it is just perfect for cards for boys of all ages.
A nice quick and easy card apart from the bit where I had to cut
out the spokes on the bicycle wheels....
let me tell you that would try the patience of a saint....
I have got some super cute cards to share with you tomorrow.....from two extra special little gentlemen.......and I had a little play yesterday....made a card....not for a challenge...not for any DT....not for anybody in particular.....just for me and that doesn't happen very often.  Now you know me...I have never been into Magnolias....Tildas or Sugar Nellies....and I can just hear you thinking "wash your mouth out woman"....but I must admit when I see them on other folks' blogs.....they are beginning to grow on inspired by three very special ladies.....I decided to bite the bullet and have a go....just hope that I haven't shot myself in the can be the judge tomorrow.....that is if I don't chicken out and not show it at all......catch you all later..............Hugs Kath xxxxxx


  1. Super card as usual, might take some inspiration here for my son in laws birthday, always a problem. And I'm moving to your end of the Country, you keep talking about sun - what sun I ask,it's a distant memory in the fens ?
