Christmas Turtle & Dove

Hello my lovelies, hope you are all keeping well.  Sorry I haven't been about, I'm finding I have less and less time for blogging these days and I can't even really tell where the time is going.  Things are definitely a lot busier at work, which is where I would normally find time to visit people and comment.

Anyhoo, I have a Christmas card to show you today.  This one is for one of my brothers and his wife who loves turtles.  I actually coloured an image, it seems an age since I last sat down with a copic in my paw.

Pop-Up Box Card

Hello my lovelies, hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and have been able to enjoy the gorgeous weather we've been having.

The garden is looking lovely, although the daily chore of having to water it isn't much fun!

I've been seeing these pop-up box cards everywhere recently and just had to have a go.  I admit this was my second attempt, the first didn't quite go according to plan!  I found a great tutorial on YouTube.  As I'd recently bought a SU Owl Builder punch and had been making Owls pretty much non-stop (kinda overrun with Owls now), I added a couple to this card.  It's my favourite colour scheme again aqua/pink.  Don't think I'll be giving this one to anyone, it's currently sitting on my desk at work, brightening the place up.

She Passed!!

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good weekend.

My SIL and I went to Biggin Hill on Sunday.  Neither of us had anything in particular on our shopping list.  I was doing really well until I came across a stall selling Project Life products.  I bought my daughter a kit for Christmas and decided I just had to have one, so when I saw it, of course I had to get it!!  Ooops!

Never mind eh!  The first page is sorted as my daughter passed her driving test yesterday, so proud of her.  First time too.  This is the card I made her.  We took a couple of pictures too, so I can scrapbook it.

Make a Wish

Hello

Hope you're all doing well and enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend last week.

Sorry I haven't been around to see you all recently, I've been really busy and then a bit poorly.  Hopefully all behind me now so will be getting round to see you all soon.

Off to Biggn Hill on Sunday with my SIL for more crafty shopping, but I have absolutely nothing on my list.  Be interesting to see what I come home with!!

Today I have a birthday card I made for a friend.  It's very clean and simple and PINK!  She really likes pink, but doesn't like fussy at all.  So hopefully she'll like this.  A list of ingredients used is below.

New Home Card

Hello my lovelies, hope you are well.

I had a few days off work this week and have been playing with some of my new stash.

Today's card is for friend who is moving home soon.

The birdcage and birds are both Clearly Besotted from the Love Birds stamp and die sets.  I gave the little birds tiny little black gem eyes.  I used SU ink pads Pink Pirouette and Costal Cabana for the birds.   I used a detail brass embossing powder for birdcage.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Love Lives Here set.   The pearls are from eBay.  I really like how this one turned out, hope my friend does too!

Another Hoot

Hello everyone, hope you've all had a great Easter weekend.

I managed to carve out a little crafty time so I had a play and came up with this



I used my SnC to design the card base and to cut out the stamped image of the owl and all the die cuts.  He's been coloured with copics.
