Happy Birthday

Good morning, not had much chance to blog this week but woke up at some unmentionable time this morning so thought I would add the card I made for one of my crafting friends. I'm sorry I am not very good adding the recipe bit after my cards as I can never remember the name of my dies only the company who made them.


Spellbinders Fancy Lattice Die
Spellbinders Label Die
Memory Box Flower and Fern Dies.

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm seeing all these beautiful cards but I  haven't started my cards yet, I still have quite a few birthdays left for this year. I suppose I should get a move on, especially as the light in my craft room on winter nights is not very good and makes crafting a little difficult.

As always thanks for stopping by

More Distress Inks

More distress inks, I really do like using them and with my new splodgeaway mat which you can find here i'm finding it much easier, good job really isn't it. As I was only having a play around they will go in my box but I may use one of the masculine looking ones for my brother in early October. My Spellbinders Fancy Lattice was delivered this morning so looking forward to having a play the weekend and hopefully the other dies I ordered will make an appearance as well. Fingers crossed!

For my nieces

Well it turned out rather nice after the rain this morning, managed to get some washing dried which is always a good thing. You can't beat the smell of washing that has dried on the line. OK on to my cards, they were made for my nieces Lizzie in June and Victoria in August. Oops just noticed that I forgot to put niece on the
younger ones card but she was probably more interested in what was inside to
Both cards were made with free papers from magazines and the flowers on the first card were made with a die.

As always thanks for visiting!
