Afternoon all..............

Well, the weather has stayed dry after all, which I'm pleased about as my daughter has gone off to the Lake District for a few days with school, & they are abseiling this afternoon, I'm sure they'll all have a fab time.

A friend of ours has a lady friend in Thailand so he asked me if I could do a card for her & this is what I came up with, the image is Penny black & the top paper is Amethyst Infusion by Papermania, the greeting says 'Happy Birthday To My love'

Thanx for stopping by

Tara for now

Grandaughters 21st card

This card has given me so much grief over the spelling of 'Granddaughter' I know officially its spelt with a 'dd' but after chatting with the lady who ordered it, this is how we decided to spell it

The decoupage is from Morehead & the doiley cut file is courtesy of Linda Davies over on the crikey forum

Thanx for dropping by

Here is one card I've made this morning, used the birds & swirls cuttlebug folder, along with my trusty swiss dots, added some organza ribbon, & the stamped sentiment is from See D's Inque Boutique.

Vey windy here today, just right for staying in & crafting, so if you keep your fingers crossed, I might have another one to show you later

Not sure about this one..................

Good evening, I was having a 'me' day today & of course it never works out that way does it???????

Managed to get in my studio & made this card for my neighbours little girl, not sure about it tho, I liked the ribbon on it but now its stuck down, I dont & I think the right side of the card looks a little plain so might put a couple of gems just to bling it up a wee bit!!!!!

Thanx for dropping by

Good evening , been very windy today, just right for staying in & crafting. Have been busy today, I've made a few cards & took them to the shop that sells them for me & I've done these two cards for a customer & this is what she wanted.

Eeyore was cut on crikey & the backing paper is the new 'Daisy & Dandelion' paper pack, which is just gorgeous.

The wedding card was for a couple who got married abroad, hence the colour, the hearts were cut on crikey using the wedding cart & the yellow paper is from Kanban

Thanx for stopping by!!

Morning everyone, seems I've neglected my blog over the last few days, but with having the Rainbow sleepover, visitors, doing my garden etc etc, I've not had much time to do any crafting. I'm off out to the Kanban outlet today with a friend so looking forward to that. Hopefully will have a card to upload aswell later!!!!

Another lovely day here in Lancashire, so I managed to get a bit more of my garden done! Seems like a never ending task at the moment.
This card is for the secretary at my daughters school, she is retiring tomorrow after 28 years in the job, wow, what an achievement, swirl paper is Papermania Basics Vibrant, chocolate paper is Kanban & the rest is from my stash! Sentiment is computer generated!

Enjoy the rest of your evening ! TTFN xxxx
