Im Entering a Challenge'

Morning All

I am actually going to enter a challenge today over at Cardz4guyz and the theme is Birds of a Feather well as you know from my earlier post I am trying to make some male cards for my daughter who takes them into work to sell them.

I have used card stock from stash, image from Jayne Netley Mayhew's CD and Hot off the Press feather stamp and die along with some other die cuts of shells can't for the life of me remember where they are from but I think they may be Marianne's.

Do so love puffins 

My second card is also a male card and this is from Crafter's Companion Destinations CD and the little Merecats are from Joanna Sheen they are so cute hope you like it.

Well that's it for now 

Catch up with everybody later, I am at Sarah's in the morning as she has the man coming to check her fire alarms and she will be at work when they are due so I said I would go over and spend the day looking out over Plymouth Sound

Love to All


Where does the time go

Hello All

Hope you are enjoying the bit of sunshine we are having today makes a lovely change from the rain.

Our darling daughter Sarah takes the cards I make into work with her to sell all year round which is brilliant and she sells quite a few.  She asked for some male cards as she was running low and this is what I have come up with when having a lovely day with my crafty mate Rachel on Saturday afternoon what do you reckon.

Am off now to do a bit of blog hopping

Enjoy the rest of your day

New Great Granddaugher

Hi all sorry I have not posted for a little while again but I do have a really good excuse.  At the grand old age of 58 I have become a Great Nan it all happened rather quickly as our eldest granddaughter Nicole was rushed into hospital last week as she had problems with blood pressure and serious swelling of her body so she was started off and gave birth to our little bundle of joy on the 9th February.  

We were hoping for the 8th of Feb as that was our anniversary having been married now for 41 years.  Alan and I went out for a meal and then onto the cinema to watch Dad's Army really enjoyed it.

We are now half way through our challenge of anything goes over at Our Crafty Corner so you still have time to enter if you haven't already.

Below is a picture of our new Great Granddaughter Darcy Rose she weighed in at 61b 4oz and is
so dinky and cute had loads of cuddles

Darcy Rose and her Great Granddad who looks petrified and is lol

Well that's it for tonight I will be back tomorrow to look at all your lovely makes but I really must get some dinner ready for the both of us as it is now nearly 7.30 pm and we have still not eaten since around 12 noon today so feeling a bit hungry. 

Loads of love to all
