Happy 40th Birthday Claire.

Good Morning all.
This is one of my rare Blogging moments, I made this card for my daughter Helen to give to My elder daughters 40th Birthday Today,  I really enjoyed making this card lots of sparkle and pretty things.  The stamps i used were freebies from a magazine embossed with Hologram Super Sparkle embossing powder.  The white flowers and Butterfly are by Sarah Hurley,  The beautiful butterfly and bead charm was made by my daughter Helen.   I still make lots of cards but don't always get the time to photograph and blog them.  Where does all that time go when you are retired.!!





This second card i made with using the drawing facility on the Silhouette Cameo.  I love this machine and when they introduced the latest update I was a bit worried about doing it but so far so good.  This card is from Eddie and I for Claire's Birthday.  I really enjoyed doing both of these cards as they are for a very special person.  Mu daughter has a blog and designs for magazines you can find her blog  HERE




Thank you for passing by and looking.

Cards for a friend


CARDS FOR A FRIEND

A Friend asked me to make a few cards for her and here they are.  I am useless at keeping my blog up to date now, life seems to have taken over a bit.  I do still enjoy making cards and I am making something for someone or for my stash weekly.  I will try and put a few others on but I must admit I quite often forget to photograph what I make now.  They aren't the best photos I have taken, but I think they are adequate.  Hope you like them. 











Thank you for passing by and looking and hope to see you again soon.

MDF tool caddy

Good Morning to you all, long time no see.  I keep meaning to update my blog, but then something crops up and I forget.  I made this tool caddy a few months ago and never got around to photographing it till this morning, it is showing signs of wear and tear now, we use it to put all the tv remote controls in with the theory that we won't lose them :-/.  I have quite a few cards that I can put on the blog too, but I tend to forget to photograph them as well.

Holly Hobby

Good Morning to you all, as you can probably tell I am not keeping my blog up to date as often as I should be and I have no genuine excuse for that :-( other than I don't seem to find the time these days. (I must try harder). 
Anyway - I made this card yesterday as I just love this image as it reminds me of the Holly Hobby rag doll my daughter had when she was just a toddler.  The weather here in Spain is glorious at the moment and it is so enjoyable walking Rufus in the mornings, my walks with Rufus are now much shorter due to his age and poor leg, but he still thinks he is a puppy and we have to remind him he is at least 12 yrs old and has to take things a bit easier now.




I would like to enter this card into Sarah Hurley 365, challenge 92  -  Anything Goes

Just a few cards recently made

Well, I haven't been very good at keeping up my blog have I!
Here are a few cards i have made over the past few weeks.  I have got quite a few more that I need to photograph so I think I will have to get my skates on.  I have even sold a few that I didn't get around to photographing, there just isn't enough hours in the day.

Twins first Birthday

Hello again, I am trying to get my blog going again and have decided to show you a card a made for a friend, she wanted a card for twins that were a year old, but she specifically wanted just one card for them both.  I searched through my stash and came up with this Dufex decoupage sheet and the idea just came straight to me.  Fortunately, she was very pleased with the outcome.


I think i will have to look for a challenge to enter this one into i think.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenge:
