1st Anniversary Card

Hello Everyone!

How have you all been - been a bit quiet here on the crafty front! For some reason everything seems to be taking ages to come together.

Here is a card I have managed to make - can you believe its a whole year since my brother got married! (plus I'm also 2 stone lighter than I was then!!).

I used one of the pre-printed designs from LOTV and coloured it with Pro & Flex markers. Greeting is from LOTV too. Love these new papers from Santoro - found them in The Range.

I hope Paul & Annie like it!

Well we are off on our Easter Holiday today - fingers crossed for the weather!

Look forward to reading your comments on this card

Catch up soon

Hello Everyone

Hope you are all well....What's happened to the weather?? Last weekend it was Spring and now we're back to Winter again! Oh well fingers crossed it will warm up again soon!

I'm off to do the Sports Relief Swimathon on Sunday which is 1.5KM (60 lengths). If you haven't donated to the good cause of Sports Relief as yet, you could donate and sponsor me to do the swim on the following link:-

Thank you!

Anyway back to the crafting and this week my brother and his wife moved into a new house so of course I had to make a card and here it is:-

How cute is this little cottage from Saturated Canary?? And if I do say so myself I love these muted colours together. I hope Paul & Annie like it too!

Right I'm off now to do a few KM on the treadmill before the Swimathon tomorrow.

Party Acceptance

Hello everyone!

Seems like ages since I've blogged, done some colouring lately but not actually made them into cards! Need to get a wriggle on I've got a few to do for April!

Here is my latest card - a 'we accept your kind invitation to your party' from our friends for their 40th Wedding Anniversary and here it is:-

I've used Monty Mouse from Di's Digi downloads - cute isn't he! (I've also coloured him for my mum's mother's day card, but in warm greys).

Looking forward to the party in July!!

See you all again soon

A Friend in Need....

Hi Everyone

How are you all doing - Ok I hope! I am very pleased to report that I have reached my target weight at Slimming World after 14 months - well chuffed!! Still had a bit of a gain this week but I'm still within my target weight. Anyway on with the crafting news.....unfortunately one of our friends was taken in to hospital this week - fingers crossed he is on the mend but of course I had to make a card. And here it is - I have the image saved as 'A friend in need' on my memory stick but I can't remember where I got the image from.... sorry!

The sentiment was a freebie from Birds Cards. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

I hope you like him, I've heard that our friend does!

Hope to catch up with you all again soon

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello again everyone!

You all feeling in a romantic mood today?? No me neither haha - but I did make the effort to at least make a card. Always quite hard to do a Valentines card for a male I think but I found this cute image from Wee Stamps and thought it would be ideal!

Please ignore the really un-straight line at the bottom base layer - did that a bit wrong didn't I!! Good Job it's only staying in this house haha!

Hope Brent likes it!!

Bye for now

The Road to a Friend's House is Never Long

Hello Again

Sad day today as it sees the anniversary of my friend losing her son in a car accident. I always make sure that I send her a card on this day just so that she knows we are thinking of them all. We don't see each other as much as we should but when we do things are just like we saw each other yesterday! I've used the Sweet Cottage image from Saturated Canary and the greeting - which seems quite appropriate - is a freebie from Birds Cards. Here it is:-

And look at me I've managed to use pink!

Hope you like it too

See you soon

Thinking of You

Hi Everyone

Found out this afternoon that one of our neighbours passed away this week. She had been ill for a little while. We are not able to attend the funeral on Wednesday so we made a donation to the collection that the residents of our street have made and I've made a card to put through their door tomorrow.

Super quick card to make - the image is a digi stamp from Stitchy Bears and the sentiment is a freebie from Birds Cards.

I hope the family like it.

See you again soon
