Happy Birthday Jazz!!

Hi all! Sorry about the last post but I was in a real hurry....could you guess?!!!! Anyway, we had a great time bowling and I even ended up a bit tiddly....forgot they had a bar there!!! Tony won all four games - what a surprise!, however, after getting over breaking a nail on my first throw (!!!) I made a good recovery...think the vodka may have helped!!! We enjoyed it so much that we went again yesterday!! Me and Tony had alot of paperwork to sort through in the morning because he's off to Russia on Monday to work so we ploughed through that and spent some quality family time together in the afternoon and evening. Extremely tired today as I didn't get to bed until 3.00 am - think I'm getting too old for late nights like that lol!!!

Anyway, on to the card. I was asked to make this one by a good friend of mine - she's a Childminder and one of the kids she looks after is celebrating her birthday today. Jazz is not what you'd call a girly girl, hates pink and loves dogs (we know someone like that don't we Vanessa, - bless him!!).

The image is from Whipper Snapper (I actually thought it was a Penny Black to begin with and even named the photo PB!!) and has been coloured with Promarkers. In fact, I think it is the first time, I've used this stamp. DP (it's actually more like card!) is My Minds Eye. Stitched around the edges and did a bit of doodling around the image. Added a tab made with an SU punch and a sentiment from Craftwork Cards. Sticky gems are from Papermania.

Need to make a big apology to everyone for my eratic blogging and postings over the last few months but I have been experiencing some major personal problems. However, now feel a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders and apart from one issue I need to sort which I'm hoping to do after Monday, feel ready to get on with life.

Hope you're all having a great weekend.

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!
