Hello all!

Just a quick post today to show you the collection of cards I have made over the last few days. I have made a mixture of masculine( always the hardest for me) and feminine. 

Ta T for now.

Hello to you all!

What is the weather like where you are? Its bleak and rainy here and word has it, that we are in for  lots of thunder and lightening! Hoorah! There is something about a thunder storm that makes you feel all cosy when you are at home. Any excuse to make a yummy hot chocolate with spray cream eh?

A great pal of mine asked me to make a card for a very good friend of hers. Sadly, her father is suffering from Leukaemia and so she thought a special card was in order.

Ta Ta for now.

Hello folks!

I am really looking forward to Christmas you know? More so this year as it marks only two more weeks to wait (give or take) until my new baby is here!

I decided to do a bit of Christmas Crafting this weekend, three cards to be precise, using some of my new Stampin' Up! Stamp sets.

What an evening!

It began with a few ideas but ended with what could only described as a bombsite! If the card I made hadn't of been so beautiful (if I do say so myself) I would have given up crafting for a bit just to get over the trauma!

Good Grief, paper and card stock flying everywhere, bits of ribbon, jars of buttons falling on the floor and then me deciding that the floor was the best place for them! You guys just don't know the half of it. 

Thank God for 7 year old Cameron is all I can say; who came downstairs, shook his head and said, "mummy this place is a mess, let me help you tidy up". I love that kid!

Right, well here it is....

The background has been embossed with silver embossing powder. Before making this card, I have to say that embossing in this fashion was not a favourite of mine. But the lack of any patterned paper led me to experiment and I really do love the way it has turned out!

This card will be winging it way to sunny Spain courtesy of a loving brother. I do hope they like it. How nerve racking when you make cards for others.

Ohhh, I almost forgot! Here is another card I today, almost seems like a distant memory now.

Oh dear God!

The pain is unbearable and as I sit here clutching my chest and wincing from the pain of this heart burn, I do hope that at least one of you is feeling sorry for me.

Chuckle, OK so I am exaggerating but I am in a bit of pain, hence  the "late night" Blog!

Right! So today I got a chance to make a couple of post it note holders, complete with tiny pens! I am really chuffed with how they turned out and think they are very cute indeed.

The tiny bow was inspired my a pal of mine,  Loraine. I  loved the idea so much that I stole it!!!
