Making Music

I know Lily of the Valley have bought out lots of new fab stamps but I still like the cute older ones with the little boys and girls. This is a card using one of the first LOTV stamp - the little boy is so sweet. I have at last bought a sizzix star die so that will be appearing quite often!!
Had a nice day today just tatting and colouring - I am determined to make more cards over the next few days - as I tidy up - its amazing what old favourites you find!!
This card can be entered into the following challenges
pinkgemchallengeblog - make it cute
sketchsaturday - sketch
creativecornerchallenge - anything goes

Off to if!!!

Happy Days

oh so pleased to have a few days off work - its been so long since christmas and i am shattered - horrible horrible weather means i have not been driving and i have walked to work quite a few mornings and its about 4 miles - i'd like to think it helps with my weight loss but the mars bars i eat on the way to keep me energised don't help.
Still its Good Friday tomorrow and it will be good as I am going to hibernate in my craft room!!
Here is an Easter Card I made earlier.
It can be entered in the following
papermilldirect - easter card
craftycreationschallenges - easter
ilovepromarkers - spring is in the air

fifty shades of grey....... promarkers

.. that is my hearts desire!!!
Just got back from the NEC  - had a brill time - John is off to a golf show next week and this morning before I went to the show I told him how much I knew golf meant to him and if he saw anything he wanted he ought to buy it whilst he had the chance and as he really liked his hobby not to worry about the cost!!!

I got some bargains - bought yet more paper - some nice quotation stamps - just need to put it all away - that's when i find out i have got this paper and these stamps from the last show I went to !!

Here's a card I made earlier I 'borrowed' the idea from a certain book [that I have not read- if it does not have the word stamping or paper in the title i am not interested!!]
I can enter it in the following challenge
totallygorjuss - something borrowed

Off to hide the evidence of today's big spend . I read a brilliant quote from a fellow crafter she said
" My biggest fear is that if I die my husband sells my craft stuff for the amount I told him it cost!!!"

Minnie Mouse Ears

I saw this image from Sassy Cheryls and loved it. I have been lucky to have done to Disneyworld in Florida - my son worked there for a year. Hope to go again one day - its not just for kids!!
Have not been posting for a while - been a bit overwhelmed with my new craft room - still not tidy enough to take pictures but I did buy a great unit from Ikea to stuff and hide things away!!!
Its snowing heavily here so I am having me a day in my little room and hopefully getting some cards made or at least a sort out. I am off to the NEC tomorrow to the Craft Show where doubtless I shall buy lots of goodies that I desperately need - and hopefully one year get round to using them!!
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges
sketchsaturday - sketch
stampinfortheweekend - childs play
brownsugarchallenge - anything goes

have a fab weekend and stay warm

This card is for my friend at work who will be 60 next week. It actually folds out to be quite a large card so everyone can sign it. I love this mo manning image and its a lot more sparkly than it seems due to the flowers and the icing.
I will enter it in the following challenges
glitternsparklechallenge - ladys card
joannasheen - layer it up

Blooming Bows

I can not get to grips with bows - have bought a bow-easy [or not so bow-easy], I have the papermania stick one that I can't do either. I have just watched a jaki heath tutorial on you tube and thats not helped. Lyndsey showed me how and I thought I would remember but I havn't. I wanted this card to have a big fat flourishing bow on - obviously that did not happen.I can do them when somebody is with me but by myself I just can't.
Anyway enough moaning - I have mastered a glue gun - I had one gave it away as I never thought I'd use it - saw how fab there cards were so saw I needed one - its been great for the flowers - hopefully they will still be stuck on tomorrow!!
This card can be entered in the following challenges
totallygorjuss - anything goes with pink
sketchsaturday - sketch
simonsaysstampschallenge - anything goes

Have a fab weekend
