I have struggled this week with Blogger and just can't seem to get it to upload my photo's. It kept saying "timed out" all the time. I know it's Mr Blogger because I checked my Internet connection and computer . . . they are working "a ok". Anyhow after much dithering, swearing and frustration from me, I remembered that I had a photobucket account !!! Why oh why didn't I remember this a week ago !?! So after a little renewing, I have uploaded my photos there and can now get on with my DT duties.
So without further ado . . . . this week’s challenge at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is going to be so much fun! We can’t wait to see what you create! This week's challenge is a… “DADS or GRADS!”
For this weeks challenge you will create a card or project for either a special DAD or a special GRAD! The possibilities are ENDLESS! Oh…and don’t forget to stamp! After all, we don’t call this STAMPtacular for nothing! This week's fabulous prizes donated by: MY FAVORITE THINGS
Well here is my card. I have used a lot of HOTP car elements on my card (acetate overlay, sentiments and map) but the fab checkered flags and background have been stamped, inked and chalked. The stamp is part of the Wonderland Set from Polka Doodles. I have deliberately left the red panel blank, as I'm not sure if I will put "Dad" or "Grandad" in here yet. Being me, had to add embellishments so have used some brads and grommets. I also got out my glossy accents and used it on the acetate to add a further dimension and also on the arrows.
With the left over bits . . . HOTP stuff and my checkered stamping, I made another card but this time it is for a birthday rather than a Father's Day. I used similar techniques to the above card but for a change stamped the checkered design onto blinds! We recently had vertical blinds fitted and I kept the bits that were trimmed off as I thought I might have a use for them one day! Love how the checkered design is more subtle in the card below.
I've just decided that I have a real thing for bunting at the moment . . .!

Well gotta dash as I can no longer put off the house work or either the ironing. However I have a penniless student at home at the moment who is willing to do chores (obviously for money) who I might convince to do the ironing !!! He cleaned my oven and hob for me yesterday so might just take up my offer!
