Card Making


Have not been about all week work took over and this weekend i have been catching up with the good old housework that would not wait another few days.   But at last i have been able to get some cards made these are for the twins birthday.  Base card was made with ellymay (my ecraft machine) and have used crafters companions Humphrey stamps.  and yes i do know that they open the wrong way but i love them Image

and the next card took me back to my comfort zone girls cards lol well i just love making things with flowers on the flourish was brought yesterday and is a memory box one called Quinn Flourish


this one is Easel card from the Crafters Companion CD


another from the cd but not made into an easel card as printed it onto the wrong paper

busy week again this week at work and at home weekend will be taken up with looking after the twins and watching out for their dad on the TV with so many runners this will not be easy but i have promised their mum. got some colouring in done yesterday evening at the craft group but not going to get anything much done until next week now

My car Boot Bargain


Needed something to store my Spectrum Noir pens in that would allow me to carry them to and from craft meetings with out having two many bags. got the bag for £3 was full of car wash stuff that hubby has got to use and i always take mine to the car wash.  and found some plastic from hubbies stock of bits and bobs to make the partitions.  its not neat but it works just fine for what i wanted just need to wait now till Crafters Companion bring out its own storage solution.

here is the picture of the bag and the inside with pens ImageImage

Easter Sunday


what a miserable day we have outside getting colder in doors as the minutes tick by with nothing planed now the sunshine has disappeared again.

hoping to visit my youngest grandsons today and will see the bigger ones as well when they have stopped hunting the Easter eggs in Aunty Amanda’s  wet garden bless them they love getting mucky. later today its catch up time with the iron and hoovering then some colouring in planned have to make a man’s card they are not my favourite type so always struggle. have got a lovely wackycars design in a mini that will go well as they like them but not sure yet what colour to paint the one they had was done in the union jack but will not bother trying to get that right would hate to mess it up. when i have finished i will post a picture for my two followers to see

hope one day i might get some more to follow me but never mind two’s a start
