Hanglar Stamps


This is one of the stamps from my new Hanglar's Autumn club kit. It is so hard to find stamps that are suitable for boys, can see me using this one a lot.
The design paper is by K&Co, ribbon & button from stash.

Berry Happy Birthday


I made this card several weeks following a sketch by the lovely Nikki. This has to be my all time favourite Tilda stamp.
The gingham paper was a free download, the images are coloured in with my Pro-markers.

Bad Blogger


A card, hooray! I've been a bad blogger this week due to not feeling very well and my house still being in chaos from our new kitchen. The kitchen will hopefully be finished soon, it's Roger's 50th birthday in three weekends and we've got a party and a house full of family staying for the weekend, help!
Anyway I did manage to make this card for Poppy to give to Roger for Christmas. I have used the very cute Forever Friends stamps and papers. I have stuck the "world's best Dad" on a strip of acetate and so it bounces.
Hope to add another card later.

Friday Sketchers Challenge


Here is my take on the sketch for the challenge on Friday Sketchers. The sketch was designed by Kristine from Norway. The card is for my ex father-in-law who will be 65 December. I am still very close to him as I have known him since I was 16 years old.
Hope everyone is enjoying this fab weather.

Magnolia Autumn Kit Club


My Autumn kit club from Magnolia arrived on Friday and here is my first card. I am entering this card into the "Autumn" challenge at Papertake Weekly, I think the image is rather apt with all the rain we've been having of late.

It's my friend Annalisa's birthday on Friday and a group of us girlie's are going out for a meal to celebrate should be a good night.

My Brother lives in Singapore and whilst he doesn't really miss much about the UK he does miss a English Christmas. I've made this card for him & my Sister-In-Law, using traditional Christmas colours.
I enjoyed the sketch #10 created by Katherina on Paperweekly Challenge I've used it again.

So Much To Say........


I have so much to tell you....
First here is a Christmas card I've made for our dd Poppy. Poppy and I love to bake cookies together and so when I saw this Magnolia stamp I knew it had my name on it :0) The layout I have used is by the very talented Tiets
I've received another award from Marion who is new to the blogging world. Thank you so much Marion I really appreciate it. Here is the link to Marion's blog
Lastly I have met some wonderful people through crafting/blogging. I've made a very good friend from Norway through UKScrappers and she and her husband are coming to spend a weekend with us in November. May Britt and I are going to Hobbycraft show at the NEC whilst our hubbies are going to the car show.
Well that's all my news until tomorrow when Poppy starts secondary school.
