Froggy Birthday

This card is for my brother Ray's birthday this week, obviously, he is mad about frogs. Used to put them down my back when we were kids, have yet to get my own back, am still plotting my revenge ha ha!! Have used some wonderful new Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock, Daisy Bucket papers (from CUL) and the Penny Black 'Green Line' stamp .... Had a very busy day at the Crafts U Love Christmas demo day yesterday.

Hope the colours of this card show up, scanner giving me lots of probs at moment xxx

Poorly - Bunny

Have been poorly with a bug all week, so not a lot of cards made. Will make up for it tommorrow, have lots of lovely new stamps and papers so craft room here I come, the ironing will have to wait! Jessie had a lovely birthday, spoilt rotten as she should be. Got a new bunny for Georgia this week as we lost our Daisy a few weeks ago. The Tobster (Toby) is 9 weeks old and has big floppy ears which sit at different angles. Not alot of anything has been done as we can't stop cuddling him ... piccy to follow tommorrow. Have a super weekend all you crafty people, good weather permitting xxx

Jessie's Peaceful Card

Just made this for my daughter Jessie's 12th birthday tommorrow. All very last minute, so it had to be a very quick card. All very odd with 'Peace' signs all over it, but she is very into saving the planet at present, everything from her purse to her pyjamas has this sign on it. Anyway, have got all the pressies, booked the party but forgot to make the card, am pleased with the result ..... Used one of my lovely new 'Penny Black' stamps that hubby brought me and some Basic Grey paper. Hero Arts message stamps and one of my fav flowers. Forgot to say big thanks to the lovely Kim Fee for a super master class yesterday .....

Birthday Thanks

I had a lovely birthday today, apart from being a little poorly and just wanted to say a big thank you to David, Amy, Jessie and Georgia for thoroughly spoiling me. Paula, Geoff, Sue and Tracy for my lovely cards and pressies. Thanks also to my brothers, my friends Gill, Sharon, Lyn, Linda, Jayne and Caroline, for all of my lovely gifts too. Have received some wonderful stamps and papers and will be making up some cards tommorrow, when I feel a bit better. Just wanted to share with you the beautiful card that my daughter Georgia made me ....

Busy Week and No Buses!

Have had such a busy week, but have managed to fit in some scrapping and cardmaking into the mix! Have been transporting my dear daughters around Crawley/Horsham in 'Mum's Taxi', and working two extra shifts at the shop, I managed to have a relaxing morning (and a scrummy sausage sarni) with my best mate Sharon and a much needed haircut to boot! Extra running about today as the bus strike has hit Jess' bus route to her new school. Think the whole of Crawley was driving their kids to school this am, as most of it was gridlocked! She is loving secondary and has all of a sudden grown up at least three years in the last week! Having a big family do this Sunday as mine and Jessie's birthday this week, looking forward to seeing family and catching up and putting my feet up .....
