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

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments made.

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.

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments left.

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:
Brown Sugar Challenge Blog - Make it Sparkle

Fairy Tale Challenge Blog -Baby

First of all I would like to say hello to all my followers (you must have all given up on me).  I have no real reason for not keeping up with my blog other than I lost my mojo for a while, then it returned but I just didn't seem to find the time to blog.  I am hoping to remedy this but will not be blogging on a daily basis yet.  Anyway here is a card that I made and have decided to enter it into a challenge to get me going again.  

I love the image used on this card is from the Pollyanna Pickering collection, the images are so charming.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenge       
Cardz 4 Guys   -  Nature.

I would like to say thank you for any comments and that i will try to get back into visiting blogs and catching up with you all.

I have finally blogged some cards.

Well I can' t believe I have finally got round to blogging.  I have been making cards but have had a little break from updating my blog.  The cards i will be showing over the next few days have kept me busy in my craft room but i have thoroughly enjoyed myself.  Here are a couple of the cards i have made.

Everything from the first card is from Stash and my sister and i had a skype link and chatted and made this card, it was a pleasure to make.  Someone asked me to make a special Christmas card for his wife and this is the one he bought.

The second one is from a Joanna Sheen CD and was also a requested card, I think the backing paper was from a magazine. 

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments left.

Good afternoon all, this is the first blog I have made for a couple of weeks.  One of my friends asked if i could make her 5yr old granddaughter a Halloween card - I haven't made a Halloween card for a couple of years so here it is.

I have entered this card into the following Challenges:

Halloween     Digi Galore
Halloween    Emergency Crafters
  Crafting For All Seasons           Too cute to spook

The Kit I used to make this card is by Shery K designs and it was Free, the pumpkins and spider were Free images that i found on the internet.
I put this card together using Serif and then I decoupaged it .

Thank you for passing by and looking and for any comments made.

My last card for Challenges4Everybody DT team

Good Evening to you all, hope you are enjoying your Weekend.  This was such a fun card to make but also my last for Challenges4Everybody .  I am having a break from Design Teams as I have found that I have not got the time to give them my all.  I would like to say it has been great working alongside all the talented DT and will certainly try and enter the very popular Challenges.  
I will still be making cards and updating my Blog but as and when i can manage it.
