Good morning everyone, what a lovely day yesterday even if i was working, it was lovely to see the sunshine, it makes you feel much better and think of lovely spring colours.  Not so nice today very dull and cloudy but i have my Grandson coming to stay this afternoon for a couple of days, he enjoys dawing nd colouring he is 5 years old. So no serious crafting for a couple of days but it's surprising how inspiring it can be, pictures in his books, his drawings and lots of pictures to scrapbook with.

Heres a card i made for a teacher retiring, so added the stars and notebook paper punch strip, the card and topper is from Kanban.  Well bye for now, catch you all again, thanks for dropping by.

Hi, here's a card i made for a friend, she wanted a card with phesants on, all i could find in my stash was one with snow, so out with the alcohol pens and here we have grass, saved, the background is from a Hunkydory autumn kit.  The weather is still bad here but not as bad as some places, we had no electric at work yesterday for a few hours but we kept open for prescriptions.  Thinking of all you people flooded out and all the poor animals, roll on Spring.

Good morning, it has started snowing here today, i suppose its at least not raining but the ground is so wet, my poor chickens, sheep and rabbits.  i am sat watching Lili of the valley on Create and Craft i do love to watch for inspiration and they are bound to have brilliant idea's.  yesterday i made a box card, my first one so heres' the template and the base card, i just need to decorate it so watch this space.

 the card folds flat for posting and to fit in an envelope.  i did a close up so that you could see the measurements, it's 7cm each section across.  well must go chill then work, bye for now x

Hi all, i have made a few cards today, i got some of my Hunkydory kits out and sorted a bit more of my craft room, i am moving it back down stairs now, too cold and lonely upstairs and the dogs howl down stairs but won't stay upstairs with me, so i decided to leave my Christmas stuff upstairs and the rest downstairs into my new drawer unit i had free from a school clearance skip, pics when i have time to tidy a bit.

the cards are from the Hunkydory Eastern Promise kit that i had for Christmas.  Here is a tip for saving money, i made the "candi dots" by punching out dots with a hole punch then place on a foam mat reverse side up and rub in circles round and round with a large embossing ball tool.  Must go i have 2 dogs pushing me with their noses, i need a bigger settee i think, cuddles coming up, byeee.
