Baby Card

Happy Saturday!
I hope it's sunny where you are ... It's sunny here but with a nip in the air...

My DH's grandson is a month old already ... I've only got to see him once but I guess he's grown a lot ...Here's the card I made when he was born

Kinda hard to photograph with that acetate which I used to make 2 cloud shaker windows

I used 2 different stamps for the sentiment ... I had the "Welcome" stamp from WaltzingMouse and the"joy to the world" from a Clearly Besotted Christmas stamp ... I just omitted the word Joy

I have Pat coming this afternoon to do some crafting so I've just made a dozen fruit buns and I have bread ready to go in the oven for dinner tonight's dinner, we're having spaghetti bolognese... 

Have yourselves a lovely day

Till soon

Wednesday Blues


Well I had the most wonderful time with Stella ... We took them to as many places as we could during their stay ... Here we are at Bunbury where we lunched in one of our favourite country pubs

Yesterday we said a sad farewell ... Her son was quite upset as he still has another 2 months work here but he feels like my son too now and will spend more time with us 
So it's the Wednesday blues today....

I have a card to share that I made last week using that little Ellie stamp

If it hadn't been for the sequins I could probably entered this at Colour Q this week ... Never mind

I made this with Sophia in mind ... her birthday isn't for a few months but better to get ahead huh?

On a positive note I discovered that my card from a previous post here was a winner at 
The Card Concept this week ... Yahoo!
That kind of cheered me up!

I hope your week is going well ... Thanks so much for stopping by

It's a Shaker (City Crafter 257)

Hello everyone

Today is the second week of Birthday celebrations at City Crafter 
This week Kirsty has created a card for us to CASE or to use as inspiration
(You can pick any element of Kirsty's card ... the sketch, the colours etc., and create your version to enter the challenge and be eligible to win her prize)

This is Kirsty's card

...and here is the prize she is offering to the winner

I used the same frame die to make a 3D shaker card

I used paints and sprays to cover my CS first and encased the butterfly and word inside the shaker

It's pretty hard to show that in photos

Our GD this week is the very talented Goga - Winner of week 248 - here's a link to her blog

Be sure to visit City Crafter and check out all the creations by the team

I would also like to enter my card at the JUGS challenge this week where the trend is 
Shaker Cards and the DT have some terrific examples

Wishing you all a wonderful day

Shaken Not Stirred

Hi there!

No, I'm not really a James Bond fan ... The title of my post is this week's prompt chosen for us by Robyn for 

What photos can you think of to suit the prompt? 

Sometimes the things around us help ... 
Did you ever have one of these?

It's a lamp and when you Shake it the light comes on and the glitter changes to different colours as it swirls
Of course there is always the wind chimes 'a shaking' in the breeze

But then again ... I could just revert to the obvious

(Ahem... who knew that was hiding in my cupboard) 

Go visit the blog and see what the rest of the team have come up with and maybe challenge yourself to find something that we haven't thought of ... We'd love you to share

Have a beautiful Sunday

The Card Concept Challenge

Good morning
My lovely blog friend Stella together with her husband are spending some time with their son today taking a look around the city.... I can hardly believe that after all these years blogging we have finally met!
So I'm taking the opportunity to join in the challenge at
I love the colours they have this week

And here is my offering for the CAS section

I stencilled the dots using Aqua and Coral ink pads ... I love those colours together

The butterfly was cut from CS that I had smooched with green iridescent paint and then sprayed with a touch of white and some drops of gold

The sentiment is from the Unforgettable set by Wplus9

We have a full weekend planned with our Dutch friends and though this photo is quite blurry I know some of you would like to see us meeting at the airport

Have a lovely day!

Hi there!

Just popping in with a little card I made a few weeks ago ...
The image is a free colouring book image 

I took advantage of the Hello on the paper ... I'm often find that in paper packs I tend to leave some of the papers ... a little unsure how to use them

He's kinda cute don't you think

I hope you're having a good day ... It's seems that we will be losing our Spring weather in the next few days ... sigh ... back to the cold

Till soon - be safe
