3rd birthday Card


Happy Sunday,

We had some much needed rain last night which will be good to help settle in some bedding plants that have recently been planted. I had a little catch up on blog hopping whilst hubby watched the footie...Englad were their usual disappointing selves but a huge well done to Wales for winning their opening match!

I'm sharing a recent card I made for a 3rd birthday...I've used this adorable little pre-coloured image and kept the design fairly clean and simple. I really love the colours on this card and must make a note to use them more often.

You're Not Old!


Good morning,

This is the card I made for my hubby's birthday. He really isn't a great fan of cute cards, he prefers either a humorous card or one with cars on it. People often give me their old Birthday and Christmas cards to recycle and that's where this image came from. I didn't think the card needed much else other than a CAS design with the text and border added on the computer.

Digital Border: RebeccaB Designs (Borders #2 Square 9), re-coloured on the computer

GCSE Good Luck Cards


Good morning,

It's GCSE season and I wanted to make Sophie a Good Luck card to wish her well in her exams. I knew it had to be a fairly clean and simple design and I cased this really pretty card I 'accidentally' discovered on Pinterest.

I also wanted to make cards for Sophie's besties Deon and lauren, as this is such a tough time for all of them and I wanted to let them know we were thinking of them too!


Here's a couple of photos of Sophie...2011 when she started out on her high school adventure and again in 2016 on her leaver's day. I love that the pose is the same some 5 years later!

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

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!
