Golden wedding...

Its our friends Val & Brian's Golden Wedding Anniversary today...Happy Anniversary to your both.

This is the card I made for them using on of Sue Wilsons dies from the New York Collection this one is called 'Times Square'......the 50th die cut is from Memory Box and the little flowers are actually Poppystamps small blooming poinsettia dies and I've also used a die from Joanna Sheen's Wisteria die set.

We've got out two granddaughters staying over tonight they are coming this afternoon and guess what we will be doing yep crafting...its always a joy to sit and craft with them..

Have a good weekend...

Christmas cards..1,2,3 & 4

I have four Christmas cards to show you today....When I got my last two Stampin up orders from my friend Jill of Jill stamps up  she very kindly gave me a little 'thank you' envelope and inside were these lovely images the little owl is from the Hostess set Cozy Critters and the reindeer, Santa and ginger breadman from the Cookie Cutter set.
My box with the Christmas snippets of paper and die cuts is pretty full so decided to make small 5 x 5 cards so I could use up some of my festive papers...
The little owl branch is an old Marianne die and the little robin I made is from the little bird in the Thoughtful Branches set (which I have yet to use)....
Love the little reindeer just coloured his antlers and a little bit of glossy accents on his red nose...
Little little Santa fits nicely in a round die cut and made a lovely little bauble card.
 This little gingerbread made is really cute...I even used the little blue envelope that my little images came in its the blue backing behind the gingerbread man...
Four more little Christmas cards for my Christmas card pile...

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and thank you for stopping by.

Birthday blues....

Its been a while since my last post AGAIN but we have been making the most of this glorious late summer we've been having, so we decided to have a few days down in the New Forest and it was lovely.

Back to my card:  I made this card for my friend Margaret who's birthday it is today, Happy Birthday Margaret...I just used several dies and some flowers also I decided not to put a senitment on the front of the card after reading on someones blog that they never do as the person who receives the card might want to frame it.

Blogging hopefully will now get back to normal as all the grandchildren are back in school and I've got more time in the craft room.

Sorry I haven't been able to get around to reading your blogs but hope to but that right over the next couple of days.

Thank you for popping by...

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 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

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
