All you need is love!!..and a bit of sunshine...oh and no gales! ...shall I go on? OK then I'll show you my card instead.......

Well actually all you need is 'love ' from Uniko and a heart die from 'The Works', card and a fine liner pen and away you go!
It was a bit fiddly paper piecing all those red hearts I have to say!

I will dedicate this card to all you lovely people who spare the time to stop by my blog, and especially those who leave me 'love' in the form of a comment. Your time and 'love' is so very much appreciated. Mwah

I hope this finds you all safe from floods, gales and anything else life and this world may throw at you...and fit and well too. If you are under the weather or having problems I hope you soon feel better. 

As I have said before the days are whippng past us again too quickly  BUT ...take heart the days are getting longer..(here in the UK anyway),  the daffs are reminding us that Spring is here despite what the weather dictates. SO SMILE everyone and spread a bit of 'love' ...then we can all feel ready for anything!

See you again soon

Hi ...just rushing in as the weekend comes to a close to share hubby's Valentine card (nearly forgot!) post it that is.

The die is another NBUS that I picked up in the sale at  the Works...and I love it! hubby did too. I think it will be useful for Anniversarys too.As you can see I cut it twice in white and red and offset them.

I hope you have all stayed safe in this weekends storm and not experienced too much damage.

Wishing you all a good week to come.

Two of a kind.

Hello...I decided to have a play with some Uniko products last weekend. I picked three sets of stamps which are NBUS.........but now they are not anymore!

This is what I came up with..........

I used:- 'You are,Yes you', Background Pinstripe and Sentiments Outlined.
              Coloured with my new Phil Martin watercolour pens that were a surprise from hubby at Christmas.They have a really fine point on them so were perfect for colouring the sentiment. I didn't use watercolour card for the flower though so they didn't blend on the card I used otherwise they self blend.
I fussy cut the flower and raised the whole panel cut with a stitched rectangle on foam for a bit of dimension.
I am really quite pleased how this came together so I made another with a different sentiment and different colours.

Two cards in one afternoon!...that's a first for me.

For those of you that read my last post, Thomas loved his card, he thought it was like a transformer and put his hand in it like a puppet and let his imagination take over. It probably didn't last the day! it was appreciated that's for sure.

I hope those of you in the UK have survived the storm  and the floods that it brought along with the gales.I gather storm Dennis is paying us a visit this weekend, so time to hibernate again. Today however is sunny intervals and no wind...a very welcome change.

Thank you to those of you taking time out of your busy lives to read is as always so very much appreciated. Blog land seems very quiet these days.

Right I am off to the Playground to catch up with my mates as all the bits on this card were from snippets, except the base card of course...then I'm off to an 8th Birthday Party at Uniko followed by a couple of other a busy day for me!!

I'll be back with hubby's Valentine card at the weekend so be sure to stop by again.
Take care

Hello everyone.

In approximately an hour (or even earlier) there will be one very excited 4 year old in Australia!...where did those 4 years go to? As I type this it is early morning in Brisbane.

Here is the card I sent for him....

I hope he is still into his dinosaurs!

So I hope you re all well.   I see on visiting blog land that a lot of you have been very productive on the crafting front..........and very artistic too. I am always amazed at the imagination that you all have.

So yes I have been crafting in between the house sorting and a bit of craft room sorting...I haven't parted with much on the crafting front...well it may come in one day! At least it reminds me what I have....I just forget where it is!

I hope you all have a good weekend and I thank you for paying me a visit. Hubby is out tomorrow so I am planning on a crafting day and a catch up of a couple of crafting programmes that I have recorded. I can do the ironing while I watch those!

Stay safe and well everyone and see you again soon I hope.
