Bella's fella

I've had to make 3 male birthday cards this month - panic time!!! Thank gawd I bought the Grillafella stamp (love the name of the Bella stamps!). I bought the stamp as 1 of my cousins lives in Australia so it's perfect for him --- even though he reckons that it's "cold" in Brisbane a the mo!

This card was sent to Oz

and this card was sent to ----- Eastbourne :o)

Papers are Pebbles, the greetings are rub ons and the images have been coloured in with my fab Copics. I was going to say that I hadn't, for the first time in ages, used anything Stampin Up but then I realised that the ribbons are brocade blue and chocolate chip :o)

Get Well owl

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for a close friend who was going into hospital for an operation. Despite being in considerable pain, she text me when she'd received it to say thank you and where did I get the image from --- yep she's a crafter as well:) The poor love is still in there but hopefully she'll be out soon and can get back on her feet.

First Stitched card

I bought a sewing machine in March but haven't really had the chance to play ---- until I had the week off from work.

Now this might not look like a major achievement but here's my first ever card that has stitching on it !!!!!! As my dad would say --- little things please little minds LOL :o)

The image is from the Stampin UP stamp set True Friend and the papers/card stock are also Stamping Up.


It's been a while since I blogged but that's just down to there not being enough hours in the day!

I did have a much needed week off work which was great especially as I'd picked the week when we had a heat wave!!! 31degC recorded in my garden - sun sun sun and more sun!!!

However, it wasn't such a great week craft wise as it was too warm to craft and I only managed to make 1 card LOL Thankfully, I had a couple of friends over at the weekend and they helped me find my mojo :o) So by the time I returned to work last Monday, I'd made the grand total of 9 cards - woohoo!

I can't show any of the cards that I did make as they're for upcoming birthday's. Here's a couple that I made last month - 2 new babies in our family.

These cards use products from my 3 favourite craft companies :o)
