Up-date

Just wanted everyone to know that I'm not being rude by not visiting your blogs. As I mentioned below, I've lost my beloved laptop (wipes a tear from her eye) but Tony has given me the OK to buy a new one....trouble is I've got to wait for him to send the money from Oz. Usually transfers the same day if he gets to the bank early enough, so I'm really hoping he can tear himself away from work and send me the readies so I can then go shopping. I'm using Lewis's PC at the moment but unfortunately all my bookmarks for the blogs (and shopping sites!!) were on my laptop. I do have some on my blog which I will try and visit over the next few days. Also, Lewis doesn't have many programmes and was thinking of loading PSP onto his but have now decided to wait until I get my new one as hopefully, it shouldn't be long now!! Thanks for bearing with me!!

Hope you don't have to wait too much longer until you can get a new laptop! It's just a pain having to set up all your bookmarks and everything again. I know I was lost without my laptop when I had to get a new charger!

Hope you're back sharing new creations soon.

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!

A Little Bit Cheeky!

I saw this stamp set from Indigo Blu and knew I had to have it as I have too many of those friends and family who need to have a slightly naughty but funny card.


I made this card for my friend who has the same sense of humour as me!  Very plain and simple and easy to make...I think the sentiment says it all lol!

AMD Samples - Sending You Birthday Blooms

I have another sample to show today from the Create and Craft TV shows - this time a blue one!

I started with a  5" x 7" scalloped card base and chose three sheets of paper from the blue Garden Blooms pad which I then tore and distressed the edges, inking with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink (my favourite!) and then layering them onto a piece of pastel blue double glitz card which had been cut to size with the bottom corners rounded.  
I then took one of the blue postcards and stamped the sentiment in blue on it and of course, inked and shaped the edges!  I then applied Inka Gold to one of the frames from the Shadowbox Kit and glued it over the sentiment.
I then proceeded to arrange a selection of flowers and leaves on top of some natural fibre on the top of the card and also inserted a cheeky little heart!  I dabbed on glue gel to the flowers, leaves and heart and edges of the card and covered with Ice Crystals.
To finish, I cut one of the blue inserts down to size for the inside o…
