Baby Ivy

Hello All


Hope everyone is well?

A month or so ago something popped up on my Facebook page about a Greek Kitchen that opens up in someones back garden in Walsall for just 2 months of the year, so being curious I had a look and it's really amazing, four of us went last night and had an amazing meal it was so authentic and for charity, I even put my white jeans on so I felt like I was on
Here's the link!

My Niece had a baby back in March and this has been work in progress for a while, I didn't know where to get the sparkly diamonds from, in the end I got them from the Range in the wedding section with the help of a Facebook group.

The papers match the card I made for her, I just hope she likes it, she has had to wait long 
enough for

Thank you so much visiting, I really do appreciate it!

Hello All

We are doing so well with the weather, we had lst week off  so have been doing some jobs in the garden. We usually go away these two weeks but hubby having replacement lenses in his eyes so no holiday for me until I go away with my sisters in September. Hubby is off  this week as well but I was a bit late and someone else booked the days.

On Monday I woke up and looked at the clock it said 6.45 so I thought I might as well get up as the alarm goes off at 6.55 anyway, so gets in the shower and washes my hair, then shouts my husband who replies it's only 6.15....what a plonker no chance of going back to bed as my hair was obviously very wet!

It was also hubby's birthday on Thursday, we had a lovely day, we went to Bourton on the Water but less here's the card I made.

Here is a recent picture of Frankie who has really settled in.

As always thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it!

Creative stamping


Another lovely weekend, so much better than last weekend, we came so close to having a flood!

Had a little play with more free stamps from creative stamping.
Used Brushos for the background.

The green one was given to an old work colleague for her May birthday.

As always thanks for your visit, much appreciated!

Always be a Mermaid!


Today is my sisters birthday, I made the card first and another box in black and white but then had a thought about making another box to match the card. Wasn't as easy as I thought but worked out better than I expected. 
She is normally away for her birthday but she is going away a couple of days later this time so we are meeting tonight for a meal and a catch up.

The box is filled with a few holiday essentials but I bought a few to many and had to wrap some up separately....

The mermaid stamp is from craft stamper mag, the box is tonic second attempt, coloured with distress inks and some shells added to the lid.

Thanks for visiting, really do appreciate it!

Midnight Fairy

Hello All

Another lovely weekend!

My little card for today was for a crafty friend at Tuesday club.
I had intended for it to be a bigger card with more of the sea showing but I couldn't get it right, I do struggle with depth so I cut it off and made it square. I think it worked!

Most of the stamps are inkylicious and distress inks and a bit of glitter.

As always thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it x

I'm really enjoying this weather, spending plenty of time in the garden, it's helped by me dropping my hours at work, I'm now on a 3 day week and I love it!

So my card for today was for my sister, another Flippin women card, my sister loved it. It actually arrived safely in Kos Greece.

Creative Stamping

Hello Everyone 

The weekend was gorgeous wasn't it, spent sometime in the garden and and got a free pass on the cooking because hubby has done a BBQ most evenings. Which suits me!

Another pesky male card, this time for my BIL, the one that lives in Greece, I'm really pleased to say that they received their cards this year. Must have been because I put them in to a brown envelope!

Creative Stampers free stamps, distress inks (no and papers from stash.

As always thanks for your visit!
