It's Saturday again and my course work is finally over, sat up until 1am this morning getting it finished, then my lovely hubby gave me a lie in this morning.

Need to catch up with my card making now as a little behind, got an anniversary and a birthday to get done, then it's the eldest step-sons birthday next week too, so after making a laptop card for Jack, need to make something equally as impressive for Sam!

Going to have my breakfast now, I can smell the bacon cooking lol

Will post some more later x

What a Lovely Day

I can't believe what a beautiful day it is out there, I have just come back from Tesco (hurray lol) where I picked up a bbq for £6.00, what a bargain ... makes a change lol

My friend came for coffee this morning and I was showing her the colouring I had done with my promarkers, she thought they were fantastic (blush) and said he daughter would love them, I had one I had done in A4 so I gave it to her, she was thrilled.

Currently I am thinking about outlets where I can sell my cards, so watch this space lol

Have a lovely afternoon and will post some more goodies very soon.


Thursday Morning ... just

Been sitting here for hours trying to finish the last assignment on my OU course.  I am down to one question and now I am falling asleep lol really want to get it finished so I can get back to the cards ... I have some deco ones on the way, so once I have finished them, I will share them with you.

Nathan's Harvest assembly went really well this morning, he had some lines to read and he was fab, its lovely to see them all singing along and enjoying it.

night night

A Word Book for my Brother and SIL

After feeling sorry for myself yesterday, I thought I had better check the date ... and low and behold it is my Brothers anniversary very soon.  I have made mum's card, as you know, but thought I had better get on with it ... then I drew a blank, a complete and utter blank ... I looked through the hundreds of images I have on cd, I looked through the dozens of deopage sheets that I have, then finally decided on a wordbook.  Probably not your traditional anniversary card or indeed colours, but hey I kinda like it, hope you do too x

I used the FunkyHands cd for this one, and some pearls (what else) on the front, then used my beloved new MS punch on the sentiments and finished it off with some ribbon.


After being up at stupid o'clock with Emma I now feel a little more alive and am ready to face the day.  We have Nathan's Harvest assembly this morning and he has some reading to do, so better take the camera!

Catch up soon

Feeling yuck!

Been feeling really yuck today so not done very much but I did get a box from WHSmiths to hold my Promarkers!  (My hubby found it for me and it is perfect!)

I wanted to share with you a "cake" keepsake I made recently for my friends wedding.  And the card, which is A4 and created from Forever Friends cd and lots of glitter lol.

Hope you like it x

My Latest Card - Pearl Anniversary

I have made this for my Mum to give to my Brother and SIL for their 30th anniversary, a bit of glitter and lots of pearls.  I designed it on My Craft Studio and it is on some lovely new cards that I picked up ay Ally Pally.

I hope you like it, I will post pics of my other cards on here, just give me some time lol.  Note to self: take photos from different angles lol


Well, here goes ...

I have finally decided to make a blog and show the world my creations.  I hope you like them.  I will try and post as often as I can, but being a busy mum and carer and doing open university as well, time is always tight, but not too tight to craft!
