Thank you

Must be the season for me to make Thank You cards I cut this on my robo Then took ages to thread the Ribbon through the slots.. Then sewn beads on to the card after Id chased them all around my craft desk ha ha ... Ive now came across a "tool" to help me thread Ribbon with my chubby swollen fingers much easier its called a "Bodkin" Dont you just love that name!!!! wonder who thought of that?

Poppy Cards

I needed to send some Thank you cards To some lovely people who work for the British Legion So I came up with these!!! I used my Craft robo pen facility and coloured them in First with pencils then with my spika pens and then left overnight to dry out some glossy accent definition I put on I didnt want fingermarks on them like I normally get while waiting for it to dry......

My Daughters Birthday

Well today Is one of my Beautiful daughters Birthday... Where does the years go?... It only seems not long ago she was a Babe in my arms And now she has two children of her Own!! My Mum was with me and Delivered Jay into the world 24 years ago as the ambulance got lost on its way to me.... I only wish that my Mum was still  with us today to help Jay celebrate her Birthday She will be in Spirit Im sure.....

I decide that this year I was going to make Jay her First kind of Grown up card! Ive always done a humorous one before for her .. so Im hoping that she likes it!  I had to make a little bag to put it in as the flower embellishments I made are quite fat on the Easel card I done

New Addition!!!

Well, we now have a New Addition to Our Family!!! Dont know if its a boy or a girl yet... as its too young to tell! We have called it "BASSETT" because we think its SWEET.... excuse the pun... at present its only 8 weeks old! At first we was going to call it Stripe But Now its here Bassett Is much better suited

My New work of Art

Copied from Alysha on the Trimcrafts forum ... I think this can relate to ALL crafters and think its Brilliant

I got up this morning, but haven't yet dressed
My dishes aren't done, and the house is a mess
Have not done my work, or fed the cat
Just on line for a second, and popped into chat!
There’s so much to say, so much crafting to do
I'm sitting here now with glitter, scissors and glue
But O’Dear me, I’m finding it hard
When all I need is to make my next card.....
I know tomorrow, I'll make a fresh start...........
Just you wait till you see My New Work of Art!!!!!!
