Something For Me!

Better day today! The rain has stopped and the sun is out - what a difference from yesterday.

Decided to make myself something last night......don't know why really, as I've got plenty to get on with for other people. Anyway, this was the end result.

I covered the book covers in MAMBI blue floral paper and lined the insides with a pale blue Bazzill c.s. More Bazzill c.s. was used for the front of the book and on the lighter piece, I stamped the words 'memories' and 'journals' from Tim Holtz, in Versamark so it gave a watermark effect. The image is Magnolia which was coloured with Brushables and layered onto Bazzill c.s. Flowers are Bazzill and Papermania, Ribbon is Papermania and Dovecraft and brads are from my craftbox. Sticky gems are from Papermania. Lettering was made with George and Basic Shapes on my Cricut. Finally, the book was put together with my Bind It All.

Hi, Jo,

I'm having a look at Wymouth bloggers' sites, and I really like your one!
On 9 January you wrote, "So, have decided that when the counter hits 2000, I will be offering some blog candy." Well, you better get a-making that candy, Jo, because the counter is at 1990!. Good one!
Where did you get that wonderful clock?

Thanks for your comment Tartanwonder! Don't worry, keeping a close eye on the counter! If you put your mouse over the clock, you can get the link to it.

Card Requests

Been quite busy recently trying to juggle work, home life and the card requests I have received.  This type of card has proved very popular so here are the ones I have made so far...still have a few more projects and cards to complete before I am able to start on my own!

The two 50 cards do look almost identical however, they are for twins!


Here's the last of my Christmas makes...

A Special 60th

My lovely Sister is celebrating her 60th birthday today so had to make her a special card.  Her gift from us was money so also wanted to dress it up a little so made a Tim Holtz gift card holder to put the money in and attached it to the MDF 60.

The bag was a little rushed to say the least!
