A nice day.

Well I have had a nice day.  The sun has been shining all day here so far. I actually got my washing dry outside, without the usual mad scramble to get it in in out of the rain.  I paid a visit to my friend with Leukemia. Thankfully she is doing very well. To say that we live just a few doors away, we don't see much of each other. We have booked up with some more friends to see Phantom at B'ham Hip, next April. Had to get the tickets before they sold out. Anyway it is another of my friends birthday next Mon, and she is the reason we are going, she is the only one of the group that hasn't seen Phantom. This card is for her, in her favourite colours. I do hope she doesn't think it's a bit drab. This image, and backing paper are from (you will never guess) yep, Joanna Sheen lol  It's from her Nostalgia cd.   I do so adore all her cd's.

Please let me know if you think it is a bit drab, and if so, any suggestions would be welcomed.  xxx

1st Anniversary

Hi all as you may remember I made a card for some young friends 1st wedding Anniversary. I have now made a scrapbook page for them. The photo I have blended into the background, is one of their high school prom. They grew up together and I really do believe and hope they will grow old together.

I do hope you like this page as much as I do xxx

Good Times

Hi all. I was just sitting here wondering why everything happens at once be it good or bad. Terence and I have had more than our fair share of bad lately. We are so due some good. Well we did have a really good time a couple of months ago, when our Son got married. Hopefully all the bad has gone away, if not for good at least for a dam good break lol. I had nothing to do, then, whoa, you know what they say be careful what you wish for.  I was selected to be on the Cupboard Trilogy DT for my Digital scrapbooking. To say I am chuffed in a vast understatement. Then I got orders for  50th birthday cards 3 needed urgently. 2 more birthday cards and a wedding day card. Then I get invited to do a stall at a craft fair I did at Christmas. Then I am asked if I can maybe do wedding stationery, for  a friend of the wee girl I did it for before. Phew .Well we all knows what happens then Mojo goes on extended leave. The next good thing is the house will be full for Fathers day. That will cheer Terence up. Well I have succeeded in making one of the 50th and here it is.

I do hope you like this card. It is an A4. Another Joanna Sheen image and backing paper, are from the Enchanted Dream cd. Ribbon is my bargain £1 roll from Crafty Ribbons. and the flowers and leaves are some that the lovely Marilyn sent me.

One year on.

I find it hard to believe that a whole year has now gone by, since I made the wedding Stationery for this lovely young couple. They have had a very, very, hard year. So glad they stayed together through all of it.

 Sorry it is all on the squiff. I was rushing because OH was hovering to take it off me, and put it in the post.  Well that's my excuse. If you look back at more of my pics, they are probably all a bit squiffy lol

Fun at the Sea

As you all know I did a page of the cute little scamp called Archie, who literally owns Elaine. Now I thought it would be nice to do one of the elegant Finn, who owns Barbara.
 I think Finn and Archie, are so lucky to own their two humans,      xxx

I do hope you like what I have done with his Photo. I know he really enjoyed himself on the beach..
Please feel free to leave a comment. Preferably a nice one. xxx

Lavender and Lace

This a card I made a while back, for a friend of mine. It seems to fit the Lavender and Lace challenge on Joanna's Sheens Blog. .

 The image is a John P.W. Furse from the RHS cd. I have used my beloved lace again. The flowers are from the embellishments on that cd. John P.W. Furse is one of my favourite illustrators on this cd. Though they are all excellent.

Please feel free to leave a comment.It is very much appreciated. xx

Hide and Seek

I thought this photo was just to cute not to be scraped. I just hope my friend isn't angry, as I didn't ask permission.

I hope I have done justice to the gorgeous wee boy. Please feel free to leave me a comment.
