Just a wee scrap of a girl

This is Ellie Marie the birthday girl herself. She is such a delicate wee thing.

Ellie Marie

This is yet another card I have made for my great Niece Ellie. This one is from me and my Dearly Beloved.

It is another image from JS Daisy and Friends. I love this this wee girl Grace, because she looks like Ellie with her red hair. The backing papers are from Crafters Companions Cute Companions. The lace is a favourite of mine. I get it from the local market. The lilac ribbon is yet another £1 for 20mtr reel from Crafty Ribbons.

Once in a lifetime birthday.

Well I have actually got around to doing another blog entry. This card has been made for my Great Niece Ellie Marie, who is coming 11 on the 11th. Her once in a life time birthday. The image is called Grace, and both it and the backing papers, and the insert, are from JS  Daisy and Friends cd. The ribbon I bought from Crafty Ribbons 20 mtrs for £1. The punch is an xcut flowers and swirls border punch. I used my duster brushes and Mahogany Distress inks all round the edge of everything really. lol The little heart is there as an afterthought to cover a wee hole I made trying to remove a mark.. I hope you will leave a comment for me xx

This card has been ordered by her Grand parents.

80 years young

 Well the sun has shone for the 3rd day running up here on the hill. Still a bit breezy, but we get used to that. Had a lovely visit from Kieron and Nina this afternoon. They look so happy it is really lovely to see. Spent a couple of hours looking at their honeymoon photo's. Fabulous Darling lol

This is a card and a necklace I have made for my friend, who is also my next door neighbor. Hazel was 20 years of age on Coronation day. We have been friends since  we moved in next door to each other, on the same day 38 years ago. The is a very simple one but I hope it's effective. The roses I made from pearlized paper. The main paper is one I have had for a long time, and thought it was to nice to cut up. You all know what I mean, we all have paper like that lol  The insert I did on CAP. The Necklace is Coral shell, red Jasper rounds and pearls.

 I hope you will leave me a comment good or bad, preferably good lol x

Me and my Dad

I have spent a few hours today doing this scrapbook page. It is the most favoured of all my photo's. I never tire of looking at it. My Dad was the lynch pin in my family. He was loved by all, he truly was too dearly loved to be forgotten.

Just a simple little card i have made for my daughter Sarah' best friend Sarah' little boy.
I always give Terence my cards to read the insert just to make sure there are no mistakes.
"Is he he 3 or 4" say's OH, " can't you read " say's a snooty me. "Yes well it's 4 on the front and 3 inside, smarty pants" says he. arrgghh don't you just hate it when they are right. lol

For Karen on her birthday, I remembered you liked Lilac,
as you wanted the first necklace I made which was Amethyst

Princess Maddy

Well it has rained all day just for a change. Best place to be is in my craft room, making cards and scrap book pages. How did I ever find time to go to work. I just can't seem to get the hang of this getting up lark since I retired. Och well never mind. I'll try a bit harder when the weather cheers up. I think in my next life I would like to be a bear. I can then quite legitimately hibernate all winter. lol

This lovely little princess is the daughter of one of my young friends that I used to work with.
