More family cards

Did these over the weekend but forgot to post them on here.

Card for my uncle

After receiving this image a while ago from a very good friend, this card seemed to make itself - thankfully!

Busy few months

In my family, September, October and November are busy months for birthdays and anniversaries. I make my own cards to send and for quite a few of them, I make cards for my mum and dad to send as well. Female cards are okay but male cards are really hard especially when you have to make 2 different ones LOL.

This is a card for my mum/dad to send mums brother. I used a sketch from Di Hickmans fab blog as inspiration. Thankfully, he likes golf so this cute Penny Black stamp come in handy again !!! With the amount of golfers in my family, it has to be one of my most used stamps. Need to do my card for my uncle now. Better get the thinking cap on!

Which colour???

My family have started to ask me what I really really want for Christmas.

1 or 2 crafty things I'd love are the new Doodlebug Craft Knives and Cutting Mats. My dilemma is which colour do I go for as they're all gorgeous. It could take me till Christmas to decide unless I get some help LOL

At the moment, I'm leaning towards Bubblegum knife and Black Beetle mat but that could very well change by tomorrow. BTW aren't the colour names just brilliant.

Card for a lovely friend

The black/white paper is from Dovecraft. The white flower is a Heidi Swapp one with a pink Prima Sprite and Making Memories brad at the centre
I used a sketch challenge from a blog but I really can't remember which one. I'll try and find out and give credit where it's due for a fab sketch.

Wembley again !!!

Despite having sinusitus, I still went to Wembley yesterday. Although, my dad reckons that the only way I wouldn't have gone would have been if I couldn't get out of bed LOL.

England played Estonia in the Euro 2008 qualifier and it was great. Brilliant atmosphere and great view (of the gorgeous Robbo in the first half) - even though all the goals were scored at the other end.

I have no voice now after cheering the boys on at the match and then shouting at the telly when England beat France in the Rugby World Cup Semi-final. 14-9 was a magnificent result on their home turf. Bring on South Africa or Argentina :o)

Good Company

Ooooh 2 posts in the one day :o)

Here's my page for this weeks challenge over on http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/. Doing this layout has helped me get full points for my team - the Pink Glitter Girls !!!

The challenge was to scrap a picture using:
  • Disney film or song as the title

  • 4 items of something

  • Fancy edge scissors

  • Autumn colours

The picture is of my sisters family dog who sadly died about this time last year. Snoopy (Loopy) was a lovely dog who really was a great company.

I'm addicted ...

.... to my Bind It All LOL. Here's the 2nd mini book I've made with it and it's fab. Dad was very surprised with his "book" and the photos caused much amusement at a family meal out last night.

65 years young

My dad is 65 today (Happy Birthday dad!!!). Here's the card that I made for him. It's been a while since I've done decoupage and I really enjoyed it.

I've also made him something else which I'll be giving to him when we go out for a family meal to celebrate. So I can't show it yet as he might be a bit nosey and have a look on here ;o)

Stash piccies

Here's some piccies of the yummy goodies that I bought at Ally Pally

Fab weekend

Started my blog on Friday and didn't do anything to it over the weekend. That's because I was having a great time with my friend Kerrie (who came to stay on Saturday) and then at Ally Pally on Sunday. Met up with a few friends and had a really good laugh. Managed to squeeze in a bit of stash shopping.
