Happy 70th Birthday

This card has been made using my ecraft
My mum will be 70 on 31st May
I can safely post this as we have  week of surprises planned 
so I know she will not be looking at my blog!
My sister started the treats by taking her to London on Friday 
and then to the Chelsea flower show
Tomorrow morning her next treat will start and all she knows is that she need to pack for 4 days away
For the past few months everytime we wind her up she says I am nearly 70 you know
So I had to put a twist of this on her card 
I will not be posting anything new until after the weekend 
So have a great week 

This card is for the following challenges

Wedding Recipe Candle

It was my friends wedding yesterday
This is the gift I made her to celebrate her day
I used the digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil
and a verse that was in one of our wedding cards 22 yrs ago
Its called a Recipe for Marriage
I printed both onto tissue paper by sticking the tissue paper to card
Once printed I used my promarkers to colour the image
I then used my heat gun and baking paper 
to gently heat the tissue paper into the candle
The box was one that my daughter got for her birthday that had smellies in it
I covered it all in paper and re applied the ribbon
Finally I finished it with a tag

This is for the following challenges

WOYWW - 258

I thought I would keep this post short and sweet
I have had one of those weeks lots done but not for myself!
On my desk is the start of pressie for friend who is getting married on Saturday
The box had smellies in and I thought just perfect to decorate and hold a personalized candle
If you wonder why I am showing you my desk 
pop over the Julia host of the Stamping Ground click HERE 
and have a good nose around the world of different crafty desks
I finished the christening card for those that would like to see it click HERE

Thought as not a long happening on my desk I would show my crafting buddy
Stanley - wide awake as normally if you look closely one eye is open

Have a great week

Happy Retirement

One of the ladies in our village shop is retiring and I was asked to make a card for her
I have kept it very simple and because she worked in a shop I wanted to use a trolley
I saw on TV someone convert a trolley into a chair 
I found the image on Google and then just added the words

Its a very simple card and hopefully will be well received

This card is for the following challenges

Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday - WOYWW

Thought I would show just what an OCD crafter I am this week on WOYWW
If you don't have clue what I am on about pop over to the Queen Desks HERE and join in the fun
I ordered some embossing folders from Create and Craft and they all arrived today
Before I did any crafting they had to be tidied away ready to play

Here they all are away in the drawer
The picture below shows the drawer with my ebosser mats on top

Now tidy I can get down to some crafting
Here is the shot of my desk ready to play

This is a close up - I am making a Christening card for one of neighbours
whose Grandson is being Christened this weekend
Not sure why but I have really struggled with this one
In fact I have been trying to work it out for a couple of days.

At last I have an idea and yes it will involve at least one of the new embossing folders

Have a great week thanks for popping by - will visit once I get in from work tomorrow
