Hi again well as you can see this card is for the same guy as yesterday. His Mum loved the other one until I showed her this decoupage image and she fell about laughing.... saying it was just perfect for Michael as he was always asking her if she wanted to see the stud marks he got at today's game... So being the kind hearted person that I am I made another for her today when I came home from work.....in between watching craft day on QVC...lol..... been good never bought anything..........yet....

Busy bee.....

Hi there, been busy busy today. First card as you can see is very pink. I used cerise pink pearl card and googled the Disney Princess image. The card is for a girl who is autistic hence the very young image, she loves D/Princess and loves pink.

Second card is a get well card 'Thinking of You' for one of our Managers at work who has been off for a few weeks. I used papermania inspirations paper for this one and an image I got ages ago and don't actually remember where....lol.. added his name with bubble stickers and put plain ones down the side to balance it up.The dark blue strip of squares is rather nice flock wrapping paper which is now rapidly disapearing, sad to say..., it's great for guys cards, I know I bought it in John Lewis ages ago, probably won't get it back in now.

The third card is for a guy who plays rugby. I used a decoupage image and Dovecraft black and white paper. The 18 is numbers that my Hubby gets from his work they are self adhesive aluminium and great for special birthdays like this.
Well that's me for tonight going to look for my holiday on the net now for next year. It's our 30th Aniversary in March so we are looking for something special......Sorry for the long post but had a lot to say....lol.....not like me....lol

Hi, just made a quick card last night with my Pip stamp I got a few more Copics and one was red so I used it on here. Hope you like it, I left it a bit empty so that I can personalise it with a tag.

Just a wee note to appologise for not posting this week. It's been one of those weeks when you do lots but get nothing done .....if you know what I mean. Sorry I've no cards to put on yet but I'm working on it. Nothing exciting this week just the usual goings on in the family, but I just don't seem to be getting any crafting done. Hopefully this will all change come the weekend. Hope you are all busy crafting away, must do some blog hopping tomorrow to see what you've all been up to. Thanks for stopping by.

Well here he is as promised .I love this little guy he reminds me of my Little Grandson Christopher or Topher as we call him .That came about 'cause his big brother 2 at the time he was born, struggled to get Christopher out so we got him to say Topher instead and it stuck. He's so cute just like Topher. I did this one blue with my Copic pens and gave him a wee bit of sparkle. The ribbon I think came free with a mag last year can't quite remember. I mounted Pip onto a shape cut with my Craft Robo, and the papers are from Papermania. Hope you like him I think I'll be doing quite a few cards with Pip this year. Thanks for looking .

Do you recognise this backing paper?

These two baby girl cards are off to Tenerife at the weekend they are for a friend in my work to take over when she goes on holiday next week. I used cb baby embossing folder backed with gold mirri card and mounted on to gingham card. The image is a decoupage from Studiolight, and the backing paper which I love was a free paper in a craft magazine. I don`t know who makes it but would be very gratefull if anyone recognises it if you could tell me where I can get more. Pink duck button and flower from my stash.

I've had a lovely day, to start with my Hubby made me a new shelf unit , AND put 2 extra shelves in the crafty cupboard . I'm keeping him busy while we are both off work this week...Then my friend Elaine came for lunch and we had a great afternoon going through my stash and messing about on the computer, a few sandwiches cakes and bickies were also consumed while we played with my Copic pens. Elaine loved these and my shelf unit so poor Ronald ( Elaine's hubby) is going to get his ear bitten for all that extra wood out in the garage to be turned into something usefull...lol and don't forget the Copics Ron......
Picture of the shelf unit, I just put on a few of my fav stamps that I use the rest are still occupying the draws...( soon to be moved I might add to make way for other goodies) ......


And then I discovered I've been given an award from Natalie over on http://www.ngcards.blogspot.com/. I was really chuffed and very surprised thanks Natalie. Why not take a look at her creations they are really gorgeous.......
I'm passing this award on to five other people who's creations and blogs have in some way inspired me, thank you all and I apologise if you already have this..... but hey! it's nice to get it again from someone else.

Crafty day today

Today my friend Elaine has come over for lunch and we are messing about on the computer so if you see odd thingies appearing on here don't worry they are only temporary, you may see some cards later, if we get the time. bye for now.

Out of my comfort zone

Hi there, its Monday and I'm off work this week.!!! So as you can see I've made a card thismorning, it's a bit unusual for me and out of my comfort zone as far as colour goes. Normaly I go for pastels but I decided after the green card the other day that I should do something different. I used my HOTP papers that I've had for ages....and a bit of braid that I found the other day I wrapped a piece of brown organza ribbon round it. Flower and charm are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by.

NOT PINK......

Happy Saturday to you !! This card is for my son's friend's mother. It had to be green, that was all he said.... so I added a touch of yellow in the flower to give another accent to the green and finished it with gold mirri card and gold peel offs. I've had this green card for ages and never used it before but I quite like this card and it's a change from PINK. I seem to be doing a lot of PINK lately.....Have a nice weekend and thanks for popping in.

A couple of cards I made last night with my CB Christmas snowmen.


Papertake Sketch challenge.
Here is the sketch and this is my interpetation of it. I used Cuddly Buddly image and free papers from a mag last year. Dovecraft ribbon, and the snowflake embelishments from the works. Also last years. I think I've got enough stash for next years cards as well.... That doesn't mean I can't buy more of course!!! Thanks for looking
