I suppose we can celebrate a little bit now that the hairdressers, dentist, and cafe's are starting to open up again.

My hubby had a dental appointment yesterday morning, so  we walked into town but before coming home stopped and had a coffee which was really nice....it actually felt a bit like a normal day...with social distancing !...

This is small 5 x 5 card was made using the Happy Birthday to You SU stamp set...again I've only used the pretty flowers.
I've used the subtle SU 3D embossing folder then stamped it with Versamark.

 I'm in the middle of having a craft room clear out which is going to take me a long time so not so not a lot of crafting is going on...  

Thanks for stopping by

This little Piggy....

Just loved the 'This little Piggy' stamp set from SU..... made this little card using a piece of embossed card from my snippets box.... a little image that you could use for lots of different occasions...

We have sunshine today after yesterday torrential downpours...planted some new shrubs so it saved me watering them last night.

Can't believe how quickly the weeks seem to be passing by and we've had the longest day....just pleased we've been in lock down through the summer and not Winter...
Have a good week-end and take care ...I think roads and places are going to be very busy this weekend...but we are staying put at home.

All dressed up.....

Isn't it lovely to have it a bit cooler... I like the sun but it was just a little too hot for me... the rain arrived overnight I'm pleased to say but the garden desperately needed it. 

Another cutie card this morning..Penny Black 'All dressed up'....I'm trying to be good and to use up some of my old DSP...I really don't need to ever buy any more papers.
 It's cool enough to go in the craft room today so that's where I am heading.

Hope you all have a nice weekend whatever you are doing

Penned & Painted 'Thank you'...

 Just a quick 'thank you' card today using the SU Penned & Painted set...I've also added another little embellishment a dragonfly....the card is from an old Craftwork Cards pack which matched perfectly the colours of the flowers..

The beautiful sunny weather is back with us so I will make the most of it by sitting outside in the shade and colouring....We did the garden yesterday & cut the lawns before it got too hot..housework all done so time to relax.... 

Have a lovely day whatever you decided to do.

Make a Wish....

I didn't start off making this card yesterday but got side tracked like you often do in the craft room, found this sweet image that I printed off ages ago and decided to colour her in..she's a digi image from Mo manning  called 'Make a wish'.... papers are from an old LOTV pad..  Does anyone else have boxes of embellishments that they need to use up? I do... hence the little heart..
Back to what I was working on yesterday!

Ferns and flowers.. ......

At the end of May I was lucky enough to win a giveaway magazine, stamps & die set from Christina at  Flowers, Ribbons & Pearls..
Both the stamp set and the dies were from Paula Pascal's Bright Rosa range... this is the first card I've made using them.

 Hope you're all keeping safe and keeping busy..hopefully the new ease in lock down restrictions will mean some of you will be able to see your grandchildren and family...sadly I have to wait a bit longer..

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Free as a bird....

Today my card is made up of a stamped image from SU Free as a Bird stamp set (which I stamped at one of Jill's Coffee and Card mornings) and the dies are from Ornate Garden layer die set..they are such a pretty set of dies.....Sentiment is computer generated...

I thought we were going to have rain today but so far nothing..looks like I might have to water the garden tonight.

Thanks for stopping by
