Little Boy Card and win a GYPSY competition

Isn't this image adorable? It's by Mo Manning, coloured with copics. The edge punch is by EK Success

These big letters by K & Co were the perfect match for the card and the huge button came from Michaels

Now a bit of news. I have accepted an invite to go on the design team of Scrappy-Go-Lucky, which is an online Australian based store who also have stores in the UK and USA. They specialize in all things Cricut and at the moment have a competition going where you can win a Gypsy, and a place on the design team, so click on the button below to see what it's all about. I have yet to get started, but I have just taken delivery of some Cri-cuts, the most wonderful gel pens to 'draw' with the cricut machine. I am still experimenting, but watch this space........(there are some glittery ones in the set, and you know how I love a bit of bling)




I am still on my voyage of rediscovering the USA, namely getting to grips with the currency. Why are the 5c coins bigger than the 10c ones? Why are the banknotes all green? Most importantly why is a British pound now only worth about $1.50, when last year it was worth $2? On to another topic, why are the staff in nail parlours all from Vietnam or Korea? Is there a huge pedicure and manicure training facility in that country where they can train to do the slapping the legs thing that really hurts, and do hand-strengthening-training for the scrubbing the soles of your feet with a ball of rolled up barbed wire (okay, so I'm a wimp).
Today is one of my very bestest friends birthday, she pops on here occasionally to see what I am up to
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANNE XXX
See you tomorrow with some rather lovely little fairy flutterby's.

Cute, cute card, Enfys. Love the Mo Manning image. I wish I could answer some of your questions, but I've asked the same ones myself (okay, maybe not the dollar vs pound one). And that whole nickel and dime thing ... it's stumped little kids for decades!

Cute card Enfys! That's one of my all time fav images. I use it a lot! As to your questions, haven't got a clue! I stay out of manicure places, but have noticed a def. trend going on in them. As to money, might as well ask why is the sun yellow and the sky blue!

What a beautiful card En, I do love those Mo Manning stamps they are adorable. Congrats on your new DT post, can't wait to see what you get up to.
I agree with you about the Nail parlours, they all seem to be Korean or Vietenamese here as well.

Cute card Enfys! I think this stamp is so darn adorable! I love how the K&Co letters match, like you said, perfectly!!!!

Congrats on the design team!!!! Going to check the place out, I mean, more Enfy's projects to enjoy!!!!

As far as the money and pedicure thing, I have no idea. But I have only been to my small town stylist, who is also a friend for my pedicures, and she is always very gentle, except for the fact that every summer she tries to get me to put bling on my toes. (shudders)

Now don't get me wrong..I love bling, but on my toes...no no. I don't do manicures because as a Nurse for so long, I have always cut them short for Patient safety. :)

Hope you have an awesome Wednesday!!!!

Crafty Hugs,
Lisa :)

oh, Enfys, you are too funny! I love your comments. Never thought about it but why are nickels bigger than dimes? Hmmm

Sandy Bayles said...

Cute card Enfys. Love the image. I am so happy for you to get to design for Scrappy-Go-Lucky. I love the blog. It feels my morning with joy while I drink my coffee. I love the little things that you comment on just as much as the cards you make. Keep up the great job. It is a bright spot of my day.

Jessica said...

Very cute! I love that little guy image. Congrats on the new position. I wish you the best of luck. Will you ever have to go to Austrailia? Such a long hard bit of travel...but someone's got to do it! lol I can't wait to see what you create.
And why is the nickel bigger than the dime...
Maybe I'll google the money questions, and get real answers. I'll see. Hugs

My Creative Time said...

O M G!!! you are SOOOO right about the staff @ the nail salon!! hahahahaha!!! About our coins, all I know is that when my son was 3 yrs old he always asked for the "BIG CIRCLE" coins! He was no dummy, he knew ALREADY which coin was worth more!! lol......
Your card is SUPER ADORABLE!! I LOVE IT!!
Big Hugs,
Emma:)
P.S. Congrats on your new DT!!:)
