Play Time at Last

Hello everyone I hope you are having a lovely day, hopefully enjoying this gorgeous sunshine.

I have had a couple of days of work this week and I also have tomorrow off too so Friday my mum and I went spent the day at Coombe Abbey and enjoyed afternoon tea there courtesy of my lovely lovely daddy.  It was a really lovely day and such a gorgeous place with so much history so if you get the chance to go it is well worth a visit.  The kids are now on holiday which will be nice as I will also get to spend some time with Benn before he starts his final year at school (gosh I can't believe how time goes so fast as it seems just yesterday that I was stood at the gates of his infant school waving him off with tears in my eyes wondering where his baby years had gone.  Now it won't be long before I am waving him off to college and then Uni - boo hoo,

So onto my card.  After spending so much time recently doing commisions for people I have finally had a bit of time to just play so decided to do a birthday card (as they always come in handy for those last minutes ones don't they lol) so followed the sketch/theme over at Wild Orchid Crafts.  I wanted to keep this pretty clean so didn't do any inking on my image.  My Marianne Die mat had been cut out twice, once in White and once in red then cut and rejoined together.

Hope you like it, well gotta go now and enjoy the rest of this lovely weather.


I am entering this into the following challenges.

Sir Stampalot - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Crafts - Birthday
Allsorts - Free n Easy
Totally Gorgeous - Punch or Diecut
If the Shoe Fits Scrap It - Ruby

Thank you so much for visiting, it really means a lot.

Birthday Box - Just for a Change

Duh! stupid me, I only went and forgot to link my card to the challenges I was wanting to enter.  Oh well I have done it now lol.  See you soon x

Hi everyone

Hope you are all having a good weekend, I certainly am as I have spent the whole day scrapbooking with some great friends and boy did I need it.  It was lovely and relaxing and just what I needed, I even got 2 layouts completed.

As you know I have had real problems with my PC and so haven't had a chance to put on some cards that I had made previously so I thought I would try and show you on now, and yes another Box Card.  This was made for a lady who had seen one of my box cards that I had been commissioned to make for a friend of hers and she asked me to make one for her to give to her Sister.

Sorry about the photo, I didn't realise it was so dark when I took it and as I have only just managed to download them I have only just seen how dark they were.

Hope you like it, she certainly did.  I am entering this into the following challenges.

Crafts and Me - Favourite Stamp/Image
Belles n Whistles - Flowers & Pearls
The Paper Shelter - Lots of Dots
C.R.A.F.T. - Box
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Sentiments with at least 2 Words
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Swirls & Pearls
Wags 'n Whiskers - Birthdays

Thanks for stopping by and visiting, it means a lot.

Birthday Card

Gosh I didn't realise how long I had been away.  It started with my laptop dying on me and when I finally got it back I have had a real time of it with blogger then on top of that my mojo had gone walkabout.

I am really getting frustrated with Internet Explorer and blogger as there are so many lovely blogs that I love to visit and am not able to, a couple being Juls at The Glitter Chick and Pinky at Pinky's World.  Every time I visit my computer goes so slow but if I try and leave a comment my computer jams up.  So if you are both reading this I just want you to know that even though I can't comment I still love to see all you fabulous creations.

Even though my mojo has been missing I have still had to get some commissions done and will post them as soon as the events have passed but in the meantime I thought I would share one with you that I made for my mum for her birthday tomorrow.  I used this digi image from Crafts & Me which I think is absolutely gorgeous and is so reasonable at £2.00.

And now I am off to bed as I am shattered tonight, it has been a looooonnnnng week but hey a new one starts tomorrow lol.



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Crafts & Me - Birthday
Allsorts -  Free and Easy
I Love Promarkers - Include Flowers
Birthday Sundaes - Birthday Sentiment
By the Cute & Girly - With Wings
Crafty Purple Frog - Swirls & Pearls
