Thank you. xx

Have posted a thread over on D/C but also wanted to say over here too, Huge thanks to everyone for your lovely wishes, the wonderful cards and the goodies on my birthday. I had a fab day yesterday. No craft related pressies from hubby this year, but he paid for me to have my hair done on thursday, which was what i really wanted. My mum and dad brought me a gorgeous dress which i am planning to wear to my friends 50th birthday party tonight!! Might be a wee bit hungover in the morning!!!

Sometimes card occasions are like buses.....

You wait for ages and then loads come along all at once!! Right now working through 6 birthdays, Fathers Day cards for hubby and my Dad, and then to top it all hubby's niece had a baby girl yesterday. Plenty to keep me out of mischief, lol

First up is a birthday card for one of my lovely Docrafts friends, Julie, whose birthday was last week, so the card should be with her by now. The image was donated, isnt it fab!
next up, is a card i've made for a work colleague, whose birthday is next sunday ( I am two days older than her, and never let her forget it, lol!) Image is a freebie download, my apologies but I cant find the link to that blog atm. The dotty buttons come from a local drapery store and i absolutely love them! This is the card I made to congratulate Lisa, James and Ellie on the arrival of Daisy Grace ( she weighed in at a very respectable 9lbs 12!!)

Finally, this is the birthday card that i made for a very dear family friend. This image is this weeks freebie download from pollycraft, its a treat to colour, so will be using it loads more.

Well, thats about it for now - more to come later in the week! Havent gone into much detail on each of the cards, but if there is anything anyone wants to know, please feel free to ask.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend. xx

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend. As i updated yesterday, despite selling a few cards the craft event yesterday wasnt a huge success, but it was nice to be able to go out into my craft conservy today and make a card for my parents wedding anniversary tomorrow. Have spent a lot of my card making time recently on cards for our "to be sold" box so it was lovely to be able to spend some time on something more personal that I know will really appreciated.

donated image, coloured with promarkers, backing paper is also donated (it came from a wild rose studio cd), sticky pearls in corner, and this piece layered up onto a section of card that has been "swiss dots" embossed. Wording produced on pc (the font is called LD Pretty), added a little bit of ribbon and a button to the corners to finish.

got a busy one today

just getting the last of my bits ready for an event i am having a table at today. It is a craft fair with a "make and take" theme. I have prepared some decoratable book marks, hand printing pictures with a nice verse, Fathers Day certificates, and have also printed off some pictures onto tissue paper to do some candle decorating. Hoping to sell some cards too - wish me luck!

Hope you all have a good day too, what are you up to?

*** just to update, didnt have the best of days yesterday, the turnout for the event was very disappointing, but ho hum, as my great aunt lil used to say "worse things happen at sea" ***

Thank you. xx

Just wanted to say Thank you for the lovely comments that have been left on here and over on D/C following my last post. I am still a bit giddy with excitment, Nippy on the other hand is treating his newly found fame in a more laid back way - when i say "laid back" I actually mean laid back and waiting for someone to tickle his belly!!!

oooohhh my little boy is an internet celebrity!!!

well sort of! Am sooo excited, some of you may remember that i blogged a while ago about a blog candy draw i was lucky enough to win, the prize being a chosen image being turned into a "little musing", anyway I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview of this image a few days ago, and of course, i couldnt wait to play.

As most of you will know, this is my gorgeous boy Nippy. He is now available as a freebie download from
