Cute Robins

Two more sleeps ;0)

Today's card was made for my beautician's father to send to his wife - the poor man has been in hospital since July with vascular problems...fingers crossed he will be allowed home for Christmas dinner.

The image is from Digi stamp Boutique and perfect for this card.

Keep it Clean and Simple Reminder


Hi all...

Sorry for my absence from blog land - and although have made lots of cards have had very little time to blog.
I can honestly say I only have Eleanor's gifts to wrap and then Christmas can commence.
Hope all your preparations are coming to a close and that you are now ready to enjoy !!

Today's card is for a very, very special friend - who is most certainly one of lifes gorgeous people - inside and out. It was her birthday last week and she loved my card.
I simply used Bucket of Roses Delight and matted it on some Anna Maria designs card.

Thank you for stopping by and have a stressless couple of days

Digistamp Nativity.

Happy Sunday !!
We had a lovely wander around our local Christmas market today ~ 'it's beginning to feel alot like Christmas'

Today's card is for a friend who lives in California and her parents live here in UK - she always sends me a scan of her greeting which I print and put inside and 
she doesn't need to worry about the card being late and any excessive postal charges....excellent idea ;0)

I have used a Digi-stamp Boutique image and Anna Marie Designs dotty card - coloured in with Pro-markers and 'sparkled' with my Wink of Stella pens which you can't really see in the photo.



Thank you for stopping by......

Happy 21st Hannah

What a beautiful day we have had today - the sun was shining very cold but gorgeous.
I'm suffering with Bronchitis again - think it's due to walking in the damp last week 
and it's got on my chest :0(
Lewis and Eleanor were off school yesterday, a teacher's inset day, so we took them into Manchester watched the new Sandra Bullock movie 'Gravity' at the iMax in 3D - it's the closest I'm ever going to get to going into space - crikey I felt like we were there !!!
We went out for dinner and then had a mooch round the Christmas markets - it was a lovely day and made me realise how much I'd enjoy a 3 day weekend every week !!!

Okay - onto my card - yet a new embossing folder.....and some stunnalicious Kanban glitter card - did I tell you how stunning it is......gorgeous.
Winestool Nikki looks beautiful in green - love it !!




Thank you so much for stopping by.....

For you......


I was asked to make a card by the daughter of the lady who we
 bought our two Burmese cats from and she wanted a cute cat on it...
..don't think I could get much cuter than this image from Digistamp Boutique.
The lilac and lemon DP are perfect for this card and Anne-Marie was  
delighted with the card for her Mum.






I'd like to enter the following challenges :
