here is the card i made

......for my friend Jilly's birthday, i was worried about this card turning out ok as it was a bit different to what i usually do, but i think it turned out ok? well Jilly seemed to like it anyway lol, i used my laura ashley contemporary papers for this as id not used them much and i think there quite elegant, then made the flower using my daisy punches that i love lol, then used my gold glamour dust to decorate appropriately. the photo doesnt show of how glittery an shiny this card is but if you pop to jilly's blog she has a better picture of it along with all her other hand made cards she recieved,

my most favourite pastime lol

i was looking through my photos and came across this, isn't he just sooo gorgeous, this is my little man Alex. i thought id pop it on because it cheers me up lol, its the excitement he shows that tickles me, its just like me when i go into a craft shop or come across a bargain lol,


today is my good friend Jilly's birthday, as she is a complete blog addict i thought i would use this way to greet her a happy birthday lol, we shall be going for few drinks tonight at the local pub to celebrate.

a friends birthday card

well this is not my best piece of work but its nice, i made this yesterday for a friend of mine she is only in her early 20s so i thought that it was appropriate? it is her birthday on Wednesday so was in a bit of a rush to get something made for her, i also made my other friend Jilly's card but will upload that after her birthday as she is a avid blogger( )so i don't want her to see it till her birthday lol, the card was made using dovecraft glamour papers and one of my handbag templates, also I'm loving my daisy punches too so had to make my own flower as well,hope she will like it?

monday morning crafting (5)

well today we thought we would have a go at making a wallet card as Ive never made one of those before, Jilly showed me how to make one and i was surprised at how simple they were, also as a bonus we decided to do one of the sketch challenges, we had a look around blog land and decided upon this one on it is a fairly simple sketch to do as my inspiration has been lacking of late i didn't want anything to intricate lol. I'm actually quite pleased at how it turned out for a change lol, Jilly also went off the same sketch, to see hers just visit her blog considering this morning was a bit of a mare with our two young boys misbehaving we actually produced some decent work lol. have a look and let me know what you think?

christmas card inspiration

this is just another Xmas card i made after having a go at a challenge and really liking the sketch, i used one of the PB Christmas critters stamps, and my dovecraft Christmas paper pack, i wasn't sure about it whilst making it but i think it turned out ok?

monday morning crafting with jilly (3)

this weeks session was from jillys making cards creative christmas magazine, we chose to do a slider card as we had never made one and thought it would be fun, i made mine using white glitter card for the snow and blue backing paper for the sky, i used a die cut snowman as the main picture which im not really 100% happy with but its ok, you cant really see from the picture but ive also used silver glamour dust as snowflakes in the blue background, and theres also glamour dust on the snowman, this card was a lot of fun to make and im going to do another but try to make it as a birthday card, will have to post when ive done it, go and check out jilly's take on the same theme over at
