Midnight Madness

My new SugarNellies arrived today-wohooo! So I've used this skateboarder for this weeks Midnight Madness challenge. I know lots of peeps don't like making male cards but I really have lots of fun making em! The papers I've used are all Kaiserkraft-they're ideal for boy/teenage cards. Now that I've finished this I think I'm gonna have to sort my sewing machine out-ugh. Yesterday Leo got his little mitts on it and I just caught him but I think he'd twiddled something or other as when I started sewing last night the bloomin needle broke!

Stuff: SugarNellie stamp-new Mary Hall collection coloured with Promarkers, Kaiserkraft papers, core'dinations cardstock, clear patterened strips from stash (I wish I knew who made these-I got em at a craft shop and chucked the box!), buttons from stash, raffia, dymo labelmaker.

I'm still waiting on my magnolia summer kit to arrive but my new guillotine arrived that Ian bought me-it's fab! It's an a3 Fiskars guillotine so pretty huge and super sharp-my old one was on its last legs! Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave-they make my day! See yas tomorrow!
