Crafty Birthday....

Hi All

Today's card was made for a crafty friend at card class.
I've used Sue Wilson dies and a few attempts to get the sizing there must be a knack to lining these dies up at each end.

And while I was making it I added two for the box....

Thanks for dropping by, I really appreciate the visit!

Hi All

Another card using the Presscut and Spellbinder dies, woodware stamps, stencils and inks.

This was for a work colleague and it was just a copy of the card that 
Maxine from maximumcrafts did to demonstrate the die.

Hi All

This must be the quickest card I've ever made. Only forgot my nephew's birthday and I've not forgotten in over 30 years. 
It was Monday, so I got home made a card (it's probably missing a bit of finesse) and dropped it round the same evening so technically it wasn't late.... 

That's what making Christmas cards does to

Woodware stamp and promarkers and tried to use colours of his fav footie team

Thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it!

The girlie holiday was going so well, the weather was fantastic, if not a little too hot for but come Thursday evening my big sister fell and fractured her arm in 3 places just below her shoulder.

 She had to be taken to hospital and I can tell you spending fourteen hours in a Greek hospital is NOT much fun, my sister accepts it for what it is but OMG it's shocking.
 If I hadn't stayed over night with her, I don't know how she would have coped, there was nobody to help her in and out of bed or take her to the toilet.

It has now become one of my worst fears.

I've also just noticed my signature has gone and that will have to wait till my stepson returns from his

So onto the card I made for my husband's aunt., she celebrated her 80th with a small family party but sadly I missed it as I was on my girlie holiday.

Using a selection of dies from Sue Wilson, Britannia, Spellbinders and Heartfelt Creations.

As always thanks for the visit I really do appreciate it!
