Happy 50th Birthday Pops!

Hello Everyone,

My old Dad is 50 today & he is the best. Here are the cards I made for him. A little jokey, but perfect for my Dad because he ates my fussy "no face" cards!!!

My Auntie Chanelle gave me this idea with her card that she made for my Dad from Bugaboo.

Here is the one I made for my Mum

I imagine my Mum and Dad like this when they are old - ha ha

Here is the one I made for me and my sister and this is soo my Dad LOL

The only thing missing is the television remote.

Right I am off now because we are out today shopping and then for a lovely family meal later to celebrate.

Molly Bloom Circus Train

Hello again & Happy Mothers Day especially to my Mum who I love to bits, she is the best!

Well when I woke up this morning to take my Mum to work, I just didn't want to get out of bed at all. I feel like I could sleep for weeks and I think the last couple of weeks have caught up with me.

Martin was going to football as he always does on a Sunday so he dropped me off at the Craft Box in Elsecar for my Molly Bloom class.

It was fantastic and here is what me made - how fab is this???

There was lots of colouring and cutting, but it was well worth it in the end.

I am going to give this to my little niece, Izzy for her birthday tomorrow instead of a card.

Right that's it from me I am going to relax and probably catch up with with my commenting tomorrow.

Izzy's Birthday Party xxx

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have not posted much this week, but I have just had too many orders to do & I wanted to get them all done in good time.

I have also been busy for the last couple of days preparing for my little Niece's birthday party. She is 3 on Monday and she was having a little party today. As always my Sister gave me a list of things she wanted me to make for the party.

I made a lovely bunting with Isabella's name on, but I will need to upload the photos of this again because an error seemed to occur when I tried today.

Anyway, here is my Sister with her eldest Ryley. My Sister tried a bit of face painting and it went down a treat. She was really good at it too to say it was the first time she had done it.

Ryley was Dracula but his paint seems to have worn off a little when this pic was taken LOL

Here is my cupcakes which went down a treat. I was up until 2am this morning making these for little Izzy, but they seemed to go down well, thank god.

Unfortunately I don't have a pic of little Izzy because she is a little madame and has her own mind. She does exactly what she wants to do. Even though it was her party she didn't want to have her face painted, didn't want to play the games and wouldn't let her Auntie Kerry take a picture. My Sister will kill me, but she is just like her - lol!!

I will hopefully be back with some crafting projects soon!

Off to drink some vino now and relax ready for my Molly Bloom class tomorrow!

My Nan's Birthday Card

It's my Nan's birthday today & here is the card I made for my Mum to give to her;

I am loving my new Woodware "Mum" stamp and this will hopefully make my Mothers Day orders so much easier. I love the words and they are so true about my Mum. I added a Tilda and check out my lurvly homemade flower. Its a little bold & big and it doesn't fit in an envelope but who cares about that LOL!

I need to go into card making over drive this week in readiness for my Mothers Day orders. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Easter Box


Well not a great start to the weekend for me. Yesterday I woke up with a swollen eye that wouldn't open. After a trip to the Doctors and A&E it turned out that I had 2 infected cys' on my left eye - not attractive!!!

Neveremind, here is a box that I made with my Auntie Chanelle on Thursday evening. There isn't many projects that I plan/think about in my head that turn out how I want them to, but this did and I love it. This was what I come up with for a little Easter gift

The box I learnt how to do at a class last week at the Craft Box in Elsecar. I covered my box in Magnolia papers (6 x 6). I placed my magnolia eggs with a sentiment I borrowed from my Auntie Chanelle in the concealed lid.

I also added my cute little bunny looking in on the top. I finished off with some pretty ribbon and an old button from my stash.

The box is fulled with tissue paper and choc chicks!

I hope you like and I will be back tomorrow with my Nan's birthday card. I am really trying to catch up on my blogging.

I am entering my make into the following challenges:

I love Promarkers - Challenge # 107 - Ribbons & Bows

Hoogie Boxes!

Well I have had a lovely day at the Craft Box at Elsecar. I went to a workshop using the Hoogie board and I have loved it.

I have really learned how to put the board to good use. I have nothing to show from me today because I have been poorly with a stinking cold then I have had lots of orders to complete as I got a little behind with being poorly.

I thought I would share one of the projects I made at today's class taught by Julie. My own little note holder! How cute!!!

Also love the Molly and little pencils we were showed how to make. I think they may need to be put on a card at some point - lol!

This picture is just showing you the design and the little pen holder at the back!

I am going to try and visit my favourite blogs tonight after Sunday lunch that my Dad has cooked for us.

PS - so sorry about the poor pics but I have just taken them in a rush!

See you later!
