Hello All

Today's card is for my boss's wife, who will also be 70 this month.

Used Tim Holtz dies, the flowers stamps were freebies on a mag, the numbers were Britannia Dies.

Sadly at the weekend my mother-in-law passed away it was very quick and unexpected. 
We had visited her on Friday evening, Saturday she was taken into hospital and she passed away on 
Sunday morning. 
She was 87 and had had a good innings as they say but she was still living on her own and looking after herself.
We are still a little numb!

Thank you as always for your visit it is much appreciated!

Good morning all

It's a bit dull and overcast here, I'd read the weekend wasn't going to be too bad so I hope it picks up a bit.

My little cards for today are for my sister,and brother-in law, the ones that lives in Greece, the good news is they received their cards.

The stamps are Art Impressions clear stamps, I got them from the USA last Christmas holiday.
 I do love their designs, although I find them hard to source in the UK.

Coloured with distress inks

I forgot to take a picture of my brother-in-laws but I think it was this one but with 75 on.

Inkylicious stamp, Phill Martin words and distress inked background.

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

Just like to share a card I've made, no one in mind yet but just having a play with some new Tim Holtz dies I've had. I think they are quite effective.

As always thanks for your visit.

Hello All

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine, summer will soon be here!

These little cards were created with a free butterfly die from a mag and brushos for the background.
I die cut the shapes of the butterfly and then put the butterfly back in. 
The greeting was also a freebie from another mag.

Glad you liked yours Lis.

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

MIL Birthday

Hello All

Today's little card is another for my MIL, her birthday is in April.
I've just noticed I haven't put mother on it and I don't know where I'm going to put

I had a bit of an accident with this one, I was squeezing some of Phill Martin's coloured pearlescent glue and the end came off and it went all over the place. I managed to wipe it off the greeting but it had oozed in between the green background so I had to add some more
 blossom and a birdie to cover it up.

You would think I'd learnt my lesson because it has happened to me before, I don't use them enough and the end gets all bunged up and then you squeeze......very disappointing.

Get Well Sister Dearest

Hi All

I 'd like to share a card I made for my sister, she lives in Kos Greece and has had a hip replacement.

The only problem being it never arrived, I also sent a magazine (separate parcel)  and I feel really annoyed, the mag cost me £10 and the post was £5 and that never arrived either.

 Not sure which end the problem is but I know our Post Office isn't what it used to be, sorry if that offends anyone who works or knows someone that works in the Post Office but that is how I feel.

Anyway moan over, I used Brushos and Inkylicious stamps and a Phill Martin sentiment.

Hope you like it sister dearest xxxx

As always thanks for your visit.

Hello All

Hope you're enjoying the rain! Monday was beautiful here, which made up for the rain all day Sunday.

While out shopping on Friday I brought Simply cards and Papercraft, been umming and ahhing whether to buy it for a week because I tend to buy and never use the freebies but so glad I did.

I had a lovely day playing Sunday, well I couldn't do anything else with all that and there are a few more to come!

I've been admiring the die on the second card for a while, as I keep seeing Janice make some gorgeous cards, which you can see an example here, so thanks Janice for helping me spend my

I used my trustee distress inks and prisma pencils on the butterflies.
