A Card At Last!

Well, I've finally done it......made a card at long last! Was planning to have a go at the weekend but ended up spending some time with Tony and the boys so my next plan was to make one on Monday (my day off) but ended up working! Had no choice in the end and had to knuckle down to it last night as I needed a get well card for someone I know who has recently had an operation and who I am seeing today. I've kept it very simple because of the time restraints and even used up some of my scraps of paper! The image is Nurse Valerie from High Hopes coloured with PMs and used my Sakura glitter pen on her wings. Doodled around the edges and matted her onto Bazzill c.s. Papers are My Minds Eye. Added a couple of sticky gems from Papermania. Now, I'm not sure exactly if the sentiment is from High Hopes or Alota but it fitted the bill so who cares lol!! Off to work soon but only for an hour or so this morning so have to tackle my own housework when I get back! Have a grea

The Results Are In!

Do you remember me telling you about the scrapbook me and Lewis had to make as a school project? It was all about his London trip and we put so much work into it in such a short space of time........well, we got 1st place.....whoo hoo!! It also meant that he could at long last, bring the scrapbook home, so I've been able to photograph the pages and here it is. The pages aren't really spectacular as I had to do the whole book in a weekend and I usually like to spend a couple of days on one page!! Hope you're all taking advantage of the gorgeous hot weather we're having at the moment. Apart from working for a couple of hours on Saturday morning, I should have a peaceful weekend so I'm hoping to sit out in the sunshine for a while and also get the chance to make a card......I haven't made one in ages and I'm itching to get on with one! Have a great weekend.

Birthday Cards and a RAK!

So sorry it's taken me so long to photograph the gorgeous cards I received for my birthday, however, had a whole weekend of scrapping which in any other circumstances would be really enjoyable. However, think you know what I'm like when I have a deadline to complete a scrapbook! Anyway, Lewis's London book had to be handed in yesterday (Monday) and of course on Friday evening we had only completed approximately two pages!! I had to work Saturday morning so once I got home, it was all systems go and spent the entire weekend working on it. Sunday morning I was up at 7.30 am and didn't get to bed until 12.45 when I had finished it!! I'm afraid I can't show you any photos for a couple of weeks as being the dozey mare that I am, I forgot to photograph it and believe me I was not in the mood for taking pictures at quarter to one in the morning lol!! Back to those beautiful cards I they are...... Denise also very kindly sent me on
