Craft Tote Bag

 Afternoon all, 

I have had a productive day, made Sarah’s tote for her birthday added lots of bits to it.  I hope she likes it.

I also made a Christmas card this is made from a crafters Companion die.  My crafty friend Rachel gave me loads of dies a couple of weeks ago and I love this one and can see many variations of this card being made.

You can see my head in shadow an the Miri card 

Thanks to everyone who visits my blog really appreciate all your comments

Sarah’s Card

 Afternoon All, 

Just sitting down with a cup of coffee and a low calorie biscuit because I am dieting.  I am in the process of making Sarah’s tote but thought I would show her birthday card, as she doesn’t log in on my blog I used a Dr Digi digital stamp that I bought many moons ago Sarah is going to murder me when she see’s it lol.

I used an 8x8 card stock and papers from stock.  Coloured her in with crafters companion triblend pens hope you like her.    Not sure if I need to add anything or leave it like it is what do you reckon my wonderful crafty pals

I am entering this card in the following challenges     (Through the craft room door)

I am also in the middle of a couple of Christmas cards but need to finish them off first.

Well that’s it for me today will check and comment on your posts later.   Alison x

 Evening everybody

Not posted for a couple of days, I run a craft group every Monday afternoon so have been preparing for that.  

I am in the process of making our youngest daughter Sarah a craft tote so have made and covered a notebook for her, bought some fat quarters, tape measure pins, etc etc to put into the tote.  I have also been making a couple of cards but can’t post them just yet as I need to put finishing touches to them.

I have made a card for a friend who is horsey mad and when I saw this image she immediately came to mind

As some of you know I love sewing and I recently finished a quilt for our great granddaughter Darcy’s bed 
Here is a photo of it

I also thought I would show you a picture of the boss she is 11 years old and certainly rules the roost.  

I will try and finish the two cards I started today and post tomorrow but I also must do some sewing and at least finish one of the many projects I have on the go at the moment.

Catch up again soon.  Alison x

 Afternoon everybody

It’s Alan’s birthday today and our youngest daughter Sarah is coming over after work for dinner and then they (Alan and Sarah) are going go-carting as a surprise present for him.  I am staying home and catching up with some sewing as Sarah’s birthday is on the 12 October and I am making her gift this year, will show pictures when finished.

As for cards well I have a couple to show you. 

This card is commissioned and they wanted to incorporate things that he was interested in through his life 

thought I would start on Christmas Cards 


I have had this stamp for ages but never used it so decided to play

 Well best go and start dinner both Sarah and I are dieting so something low in calories me thinks

Bye for now will do another post when I have made some more cards

 Afternoon all

Been a funny old day today our new tumble dryer was delivered this morning had to buy a new one as the cat decided to bring a little furry friend home and then let it go it then proceeded to ignore the humane mouse traps and made home in our dryer and then decided to eat it’s way through all the cables/wiring insurance company said that they didn’t cover rodent damage/infestation to which I replied we didn’t have a rodent problem we had a cat problem.

Here are a couple of cards I made a few weeks ago but am only just getting around to posting.  I love these images so cute.  

Well that’s it for today will check in again soon
Take care

 Hi All just popping by to say hello and to post a couple of cards I made today.  

These are commissioned cards for a friend whose granddaughter is going to be 18 in October and she loves elephants, the first card is using a sweet poppy stencil and the second is using an image from a  Jayne Netley Mayhew CD which I have had for years 

I have entered this card into the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog 

This next card is for my hubby Alan’s birthday he will be 71 on Friday, our daughter Sarah is taking him go-carting, think he will enjoy it.

Anyway that’s it for tonight will post more cards over the next few days

Hello Again

 Well it’s been such a long time since I published on here not sure how many of you are still around.  Alan has now been retired for 4 years.  Our great granddaughter Darcy is nearly 5 years old and has started school, we also have a great grandson Harry who is now 3 years old and has started nursery.  Picture Alert

I am hoping to get back into card making but not on the scale I was at previously.  I am still making my own soap and quilting and sewing a fair but but have also started crocheting but can only do granny squares at the moment, onwards and upwards.

I hope a few of my previous followers are around would love to hear from you and call by your blogs.

Love Alison

I am hoping to get back into card making
