Starting School....

Our youngest Grandson starts school on Monday....he seems too young as he's only just 4years old and will be one of the youngest ones....thankfully he's part-time for 3 weeks so as to ease them in gently...

This is a little good luck card I've made him using one of Mo Manning's digi images....the small alphabet and numbers are from the Tattered Lace Issue 3 magazine.  Backing papers are from Echo Park 'Boys life' paper pad...  
Bless him his school shirt comes down to his knees and his little shorts are for 2-3 year olds....but he cant wait to go...and of course his big sister is giving him lots of adivce on what to do and what not to do, she's 6 1/2 ....don't you just love 'em...

We have a dry day here in Somerset which is lovely after the awful rain over the past 3 days...

Pixie's Snippets Challenge week 138......




Managed to make a quick card for Pixie's Snippets Challenge  before we have the grandchildren tomorrow... sorry the photograph isn't good..

I've used a little Penny Black stamp called 'Daisy Sprig', stamped and coloured with Copics, image cut out with Spellbinders Pierced Ovals...papers are from LOTV 'Promised' pad...Whimsy Corner dies, and I've used part of the Sue Wilson petite bows for across the centre and added and little pearl embellishment, sentiment S.U.

 I  won't be posting again until next weekend.....put will try and pop by your blogs when the children are in bed!

Something a bit different....

 Firstly thank you all very much for your kind get well wishes and I am feeling so much better now...

My Mojo seems to gone on 'sick leave' now so really struggling to make cards. We have our two youngest grandchildren next week for a few days and whilst in our local craft shop looking for things to keep them occuppied should the weather be bad I came across these scrabble sticker letters so thats what I've been playing with and this is one of the cards I've come up with.  Its lovely to make pretty wedding cards but not everyone likes 'pretty' so this is my version of 'different'....  I've used my new Spellbinders Celebration Pierced squares apart from that its all scraps of card and string....tiny hearts are from the waste of the Martha Stewart punch...I knew one day they would come in hand!

Have a great weekend...

Owl Wedding card....




 It's nice to be back in the craft room its been an eventful two weeks, had a lovely week in Brixham with two of our grandchildren and the weather was glorious....came back Saturday and ended up in hospital on Sunday until Weds evening....  feeling better everyday now which is geat.

This card I made with a friend, the image is one from Pollyanna Pickering British Wildlife and thought it would make a lovely wedding card..using Sue Wilson's lattice heart background, Memory Box hanging hearts.

Hope to visit your blogs soon to catch up and see what you've all been up to...

Last post for a week or so.......


 
 The Grandchildren arrived yesterday so for the next week or so we are spending time with them so the craft room will be redundant for a while.

I managed to finish off making this very quick card yesterday using one of the beautiful flower images from one of the LOTV Art Pads....just added a little bit of glitter to the flower heads...
Backing paper is also from LOTV....corner die from Whimsy and I just love the new petite bow from Sue Wilson.

My craft room looks all neat and tidy now that everythings back in its right place...its not normal is it??   ..lOl...lOl

Catch up with you all soon

Pixies-snippets-playground-week-134

Another week flown by and another Pixie's Snippes Playground...

Do you have coloured card in your stash that you just dont like and it rarely gets used?  Well I've actually used some on my Snippets card its the rusty colour.  The image is a pre-coloured LOTV one called 'A lick of Paint' but I've changed some of the colours to tone in with my snippets of card....two strips of 'Hessian' embossing, I cut the Hessian ribbon in half as I only had a small piece left so what you see is all I had! Corners and the star are all Stampin Up punches..
We've got a lovely day here in Somerset after the awful thunder, lightening and rain yesterday...just hope it stays fine for the childrens summer holidays...
