Wedding Anniversary


I made this card for the sisters and brother in laws 24th Wedding Anniversary
They tend to go to Disney every other year so I thought I would do a similar card to the engagement one I made my daughter and her fiancee
This time I printed the image directly onto the card and used word
 to curve the sentiment around the image
Finally I added a piece of red card with my bargain tape from
 poundland and bit of spotted ribbon

This card is for the following challenges:

Inspirational Destination Challenges - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

Birthday for Adopted Dad


This card uses another image from The Little Book of Smudge and Mitten
I trimmed it down to fit the card and also the scraps off card I was using to mat and layer it!
This card is made totally from my scraps drawer
It was a quick and simple card but I am pleased with the effect
I made this card for a gentlemen called Peter who since the death of my own dad in 2008 has filled the space of Dad and Grandad to our family - not that he had any choice lol



What A Pathetic Year of Blogging - Now to Try Better and Greyhound keeping cosy this winter

Back to It and Belated Happy New Year



The picture above is my retired greyhound trying to ignore the fact that is has been snowing outside his idea is to cover up and ignore the weather

I was just looking at my blog for last year and realised how little I did on here
I am going to try harder this year although I have not got off to a good start with 2017
I went down with a cold between Christmas and New Year and do not seem to be able to shift it
I was signed of from work last week and am still suffering with a sore throat and cough
Just hoping it clears up by Monday or it will back to the Doctors
I have been making cards and will start getting some of the posted on here
I am also starting to plan the wedding invites for my daughters wedding in September
We have a very exciting year with ours and my sisters 25th wedding anniversary and a wedding
As well as looking after a friends cattery for three and half months whilst they are on a world cruise.
I do not promise to blog every week although that is was I would like to get back to but just to let you all know I am still here and crafting 

I shall upload some pictures later of the cards I have been making upto Christmas as I have not felt well enough to make any yet this year but I have lots of ideas just no energy to try them out
So like any good crafter I have had a sort of my stash and put some on ebay and ordered some new bits to help me along the away

Loving nosing around all you blogs and taking inspiration from your craftiness

Engagment Card for My Daughter and soon to be Son in Law!




My daughter was taken by her boyfriend to Disney World Florida
Whilst they where over there they visited Gatorworld and at the end of the last zip line
He was on one knee and asked her to marry him - such an exiting time
This is the card I made them for when they got home
The Mickey and Minnie silhouette came from the Esty store
I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut the image
I hand wrote their names above the images and added a bit of colour
The scrolls at the bottom are a roll of stickers that I picked up in poundland
The ribbon was left over from another project and was in my stash drawer
Now I just have to plan the wedding invites for when they get married next September!

This card is for the following challenges

I have coloured them using my promarkers
The papers are all bits from my scraps drawers
After trimming to size I then used my ink pads to distress the edges
