Happy Birthday Dad


Good Morning,

Happy weekend, hope you all have a good one...the weather here is decidedly dodgy and could rain at any point.  Think it will be an inside kind of a day!

It was hubby's birthday recently and this was the card I made from James and Sophie. They asked for something that wasn't cute and as in previous years, we have exhausted aeroplanes and MG cars...I opted for something a bit rustic in a very clean and simple design.

Tools: Cricut Expression to cut DAD letters, Die-namics (Fishtail Flag Stax)
Embellishments: Card candy (white) coloured with a Tan Promarker
Sentiments: 'You're The Best' created on the computer using 'Sandwich Paper' font, 'Best Wishes on your Birthday' stamped using an old Elzybells sentiment stamp

Sophie 16th Birthday...Jiggles the Giraffe



Good morning,

OK! So not only is Sophie shoe mad, she also loves giraffes and can't get enough of them if ever we get the opportunity to visit the zoo.

I spent hours trawling the internet for a digital image and finally found this adorable little image from Doodle Pantry...he's called Jiggles. I opted to create a little scene and cased this card that I found on Pinterest...I love that there's so much inspiration on the net, especially when your craft mojo isn't really on the ball.

Passion for Promarkers #344...Nature


Good morning,

It's time to share new challenge details for Passion for Promarkers and this weeks theme is all about...
NATURE

My contribution to nature is this pretty little box of flowers...I love daisies as they remind me of my childhood, making daisy chains in the summer and then attempting to wear them as a necklace. Somehow I always managed to break mine though!

Apologies for the rubbish photo...my camera broke over the weekend and I had to snap this with my iphone...its not the best quality but needs must and all that. Also, just as a point of reference for myself really, this card is 8" x 8" and the scalloped card base came from Hunkydory.

We are sponsored by

Sophie 16th B'Day Card (Sister)


Good morning,

I'm sharing a card today that I made for Sophie's 16th birthday a few weeks ago. She's absolutely shoe mad and I couldn't really find any images I liked online so I turned to my trusty 'Fabulous Shoes CD' and chose this lovely image that looks a bit like a toadstool!

The card was a real hit and looks much nicer in real life...for some reason my camera kept making the shoe look out of focus.

1st Birthday Card


Good morning,

Hope you all had a wonderful easter weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed the longer weekend break away from work, its just a shame that we only had one nice day of dry weather. We did manage to cut the grass and tidy the garden up a bit on Good Friday so at least we were able to tick something off our list!

I'm sharing a card today that I recently made for a 1st birthday...I know I've said it before but pre-coloured images are a god send when you need a quick card and I adore these little critters from one of the Lily of the Valley art pads...they're so cute!

30th Birthday Card


I think I most probably get the 'worst blogger award so far for 2016 and I am so sorry I haven't been aorund much to visit your blogs.

I have no excuse, I just need to get better at managing my time. I have made a few cards recently but they have largely been with pre-coloured images for quickness. I'm also embarassed to say that I have also recently bought some shop cards for family & friends birthdays but they have been very kind and haven't beaten me up about it!

Anyhoo, I mjade this card a while ago for a lady who loves, frogs, green and yellow....bingo, a perfectly co-ordinated card to which I added ribbon, lace and pearls to girlify it.

Also, just to prove I haven't been completely idle..I have been crocheting throughout the dark winter evenings and below are some piccy's of recent makes I've finished...

Florence...1st Birthday Card


Good morning,

Brrr...its very chilly here today even though the sun is shining. We had a very hectic few days last week preparing for a mini break to visit family in Scotland. We had a wonderful few days even though it was extremely cold. We arrived home to no heating or hot water last night but thankfully hubby managed to sort it out and we're defrosting now.

I haven't managed to visit any blogs over the last week or so but I hope to rectify that over the next couple of days.

I made this card recently for a little girl who is celebrating her 1st birthday...I couldn't resist using a bit of gingham with one of these adorable pre-coloured images from Lily of the Valley.
