For Mum
Hi friends! Long time no post. Sorry, but things are happening here and I will tell you all about it soon. (It's all good, so don't worry). OK, onto my latest DT card for In The Pink. Our theme today is.... For a special lady (including Mother's Day) I was ...
I was going to make a card for my grand-daughter, but changed my mind and decided to make a card in memory of my wonderful exasperating mum, who I lost 5 years ago. This is just the type of card she would have loved to receive,. so if you're looking down Mum, this is for you!

Purr-fectly pink
Hi friends. I hope the day finds you well and in good spirits. I've all of a sudden decided to use some of the pots of Frantage I rushed to buy moths ago and never used!! (I'm good at that)!! Anyway,  I made a card a couple of days ago with Shabby white for...
Anyway, I made a card a couple of days ago with Shabby white for the next CSAYL challenge, which, for obvious reasons, I can't show you yet, but it got me going if you like, so I made another card using Shabby Pink...... I actually think I went a bit overboard, what do you think?

Something completely different!
Hya Friends! Today, I finally did something with a pattern I got of the Silhouette store. I loved it in the store, but didn't love it so much after I cut it out! I left it lounging on my desk for ages, but finally thought, 'either bin it or do summat with i...
I cut two of the blue patterns and scored one about 2" at the top, glued it to the top and back of the front one and that gave me a 'hinge' for the back of a card. As it's got a lot of scrolls on it, the only other embellishment I gave it was a blingy brad on a piece of ribbon.

Have a 'hoot'
Hya friends! How's the snow at your neck of the woods? Back to the usual here, melting and slushy. Yak! Loved it while it was coming down though. I'm a sucker for snow. OK, a few days ago, I made this card for my DH's nephew....   It's a blatant CASE of a f...

Hi freinds. No card today I'm afraid. Just thuoght I ought to let you know that we are selling our house and moving to a bungalow in Wales. I had no idea how much work was involved!! I'm shattered! LOL   There's one room I can't do much with though and that...
I haven't time to make a card and I miss playing, but I need to keep everywhere as tidy as possible, 'coz it needs all the help it can get! LOL. We had our first viewing yesterday. (Mother's Day too)! Still, we made ourselves scarce and told the lads not to come until after 1pm.

I used a sentiment from PK-1444 'Dear Santa and Penguin sentiments'. Because the stamps are so flexible, I was able to curve it around the base of the circle. I stamped her onto a stitched circle (SSS), coloured the little lady with Copics and mounted it onto a stitched rectangle then the base ...

I've got the blues!
Well I thought I'd give pink a rest for today. (It'll be back on Thursday with a new challenge at In The Pink, so please come back). I looked at a few paper pads and lit on a Papermania Capsule Collection pad 'Burleigh Blue' It's hardly, if ever, seen the l...

Getting even pinker!
I swear this wasn't pink on purpose! I saw the gorgeous cut-out card in the Silhouette store and had to have it. 99cents or 60pence for a lovely design is a bargain in my eyes! Well, I just automatically grabbed some pink cardstock to add contrast! Why didn...

Visited this lovely little shop on 25th October with a group of friends. Deborah made us welcome and was very friendly and helpful without being 'in your face'. She has a great range of crafting goodies and upstairs there is the facility for craft classes. We were provided with tea and cakes and had a great time. Thank you Deborah! (Don't lose my lace)!
