Hunkydory Mans card....

It's a couple of weeks since I postesd but the children are still on holiday and we still haven't finished our babysitting duties just yet.

I was lucky enough to be given some lovely Hunkydory images from two different friends thank you Jill and Margaret.  This is one I made from a man's collection and have used it to make a friends birthday card.  Using a vintage worded embossing folder a few sentiments a border, ribbon and its done...you will be seeing a lot more of the gorgeous toppers over the next few week they are so quick to make a card with and I shall be needing more cards for my craft fair in November...

It's drizzling a little bit this morning down here in Somerset but I must say it is nice to have it a bit cooler especially the nights...

Enjoy your weekend ...

Thank you cards...


 Whilst clearing Karen's craft room I came across a bag filled with 'Thank you' tags which were from Clearly Besotted usually when your order arrived it came with one of these tags...rather than bin them I thought it might be a nice idea to make 'Thank you' cards with them so some of the girls from our craft club took one home and made a card with....the above card is mine...just used a Spellbinders die and some pattern paper that was all in my bit box
These are some of the cards the girls made from the tags....they will now be delivered to one of our local Hospice shops....

Hopefully we can use  the others and make more cards...I also found lots of doilies so again  am hoping the girls will take one home and make a card.
Its another glorious day down here in Somerset so we've been making the most of the weather before it changes at the end of the week.

Thanks for looking

Club night bags....


 On club night we made these lovely  Crafty Hallett bags (link here if you fancy  having a go ) They are so easy to make using two sheets of double sided 12 x 12 papers.  On the first bag I have used my beautiful Baby bear stamp again..
 The second bag again is SU DSP and flowers made from the SU large Rose die and various punches

The weathers looking great for the weekend so enjoy it..

Special Card.....

Would you believe it I've actually managed to make a card in between seeing the grandchildren....
This card is for a very special lady and is one of my oldest friends, we've known each other for about 39 years...she loves bears so I thought I would use this gorgeous bear stamp from Stampin Up called Babby Bear
I''ve used a mixture of Sue Wilsons dies, stampin up card and paper.
I am so pleased I decided to buy this stamp set and I think it will get a lot of use..

Thanks for popping by

Candy.....


 As some of you know I have been clearing out my friend Karen's Craftroom, Karen's sadly passed away at Easter.  There's an awful lot to do but we are getting there, and what we dont sell will go to the St Margarets Hospice shops.

Whilst clearing Karen's 'warehouse' of crafting goodies I realized just how much I've have hoarded over the years and needed to do something about it ...so yesterday afternoon I started to sort through my 'stash' its going to take quite a while!!!...as I've not made a card for a while (there are a couple on my desk in progress) I thought I would offer up some Candy..
Creative Expressions Wedding stamps one I won from Sue Wilsons blog, the Indigo Blu Christmas trees which seemed a good idea at the time but they haven't seen daylight and the little Bloomin Violet die has been used once....

We shall be spending time with the grandchildren over the summer holidays so not a lot of card making will get done really until September

So my blogging friends  leave me a comment and I will get one of my grandchildren to pick a name out on Sunday night...

No candy hunters please ......
