Exciting News but it’s not my sshhhh secret

 Afternoon All

Exciting news the housing association my daughter works for has asked me to design new home cards for when new tenants move into one of their properties, so have been trolling the internet trying to find either digi images or clear stamps to buy to create these cards but either I am not putting the correct info in the search engine or there is not a lot of stuff out there, can anyone help guide me to the right place to buy please.

These are what I have managed so far

I wanted to make a simple card with no layers as then it becomes more expensive.  The first three cards are 6x6 cards.

Love this sweet image

This is a LOTV digi image

This one is layered bit a much smaller card think it measures 4x6

Will have my dinner then do some commenting, at the moment Bella is rolling over my feet whilst playing with teddy, it’s not a very clear photo as the little devil was rolling about.

Well oven’s beeping so dinner ready 

See you on the other side.

Oldie but a Cutie

 Evening everybody

Dinner is in the slow cooker, chicken curry tonight just put the water on for the rice so thought I would come and say a huge thank you to Brenda who helped sort my blog out what a long winded convoluted way of putting a page on it’s not as easy as it used to be that’s for sure.  There must be an easier way.

Todays card is another Christmas card and this image I bought years ago from hobby house and found when having a sort through.  I have no coloured ribbon so ended up using my alcohol pens to colour a white ribbon must go shopping but hate going into town it’s a 30 mile round trip lol.

  Will be back after dinner to do some commenting

I have a secret and made cards

 Afternoon all

I have a secret shhhh and I’m dying to tell but I have to wait just a little longer so watch this space, I am so excited.  

Todays card I found in my box of made cards, not sure why I haven’t shown it, can’t even remember when I actually made it.  

I am just about to make Banana and Choc Chip muffins for tomorrow’s sewing group.  If anyone wants the recipe let me know and I will create a recipe page.

Well that’s it from me today, very short post, will check everyone’s lovely creations later today when I actually sit down for more than 10 mins.

Cardmaking and craft Challenge at Polkadoodles

 Afternoon all

Am having a lazy day today so have only made the one card hope you enjoy.  

I am trying to take better photo’s think I may need a lighter background.  I used silver Miri card, backing paper was a kit years ago from hunkydory, I had the die which I cut from paper stash added a few pearls to my beautiful Winnie Mermaid Mermazing kisses digi download, coloured using crafter companion triblend pens.  I then added some sparkle pens to add a bit of glam.

Am off to enjoy my coffee will catch up with everyone later today

Bored with Christmas Cards

 Afternoon all

Hoe you are well and welcome to my new followers.  I was getting bored with making Christmas cards and decided to play with a stencil I bought at the Exeter Show in September, I have hardly ever used stencils so this is a learning curve for me, but I love dandelions it reminds me of my eldest daughter who right into her 30’s believed that the seeds from dandelions were fairies lol.  For those that followed me years ago know that my daughter Pauline stopped speaking to me in 2003 when she got married although she did tolerate me at family gatherings, things came to a head about two years ago and now she has cut me out of her life altogether but life goes on.

So here is my card 

I used Tim Holtz distress inks paper and card from stash.  I am off to cook dinner just now am making homemade beef burgers and sweet potato chips made in the actifry with homemade onion rings, corn on the cob with a garlic dip.

Love Alison
