100 years

Hi everyone!

Better late than never! Last Sunday was my mums 100th Birthday.. Not quite the celebration it should have been. Covid has certainly spoiled a lot of thing for a lot of people this year.

As promised here is the card that I made for her.......

(Photo get a cuppa...)

First up the box to put it in.....

and then the card....8" square with front folded back ad a 6" card inside folded the opposite way.

Co-ordinating papers from a Nitwits pad LOTV I think! and the border edging is an age old border punch! ...remember them? Sentiment dies are Crafters Companion and the corner pearls are Creative Expressions. Sorry not very clear in the photos.

and finally both together.

It was hard not being able to see her on her birthday and give her a hug...typical that the weather changed a couple of days before after all the glorious sunshine.

A little bit different for me...and if I am honest I am not sure about it even now. I think I have got used to the more CAS look. 

Crafting has taken a back seat in the Dixon household just now, with life having taken a big change for us, and things to deal if I am absent for a while, I haven't forgotten you all and will still be peeking at your creations but probably not leaving you the love you deserve in the form of a comment....forgive me please and be sure I will surface again at some point.

Till then...thank you for stopping by...and stay safe and well in this strange world.

A kit and blogger experiment!

Hi Everyone!

Well here we are at the beginning of June and the easing of Lockdown!...I for one will still be carrying on the same and not venturing out more than is necessary. This rapid release worries me I have to say.

Thank you to those of you that left such lovely comments regarding the album I did for my son...when I found your comments that is...they were not coming through on the email to alert me. As blogger is once again messing with our heads I am giving this post a go on the new goes....

Three quick cards made with a kit I have had for ages and decided it was time to at least use part of it....nothing special in the creation.....

One in pink....

In blue....

and green.....(just showing off now! ) I have also changed font size to large for those who are interested....or struggle to read small print. Let me know what you think about it.

I think they are an ages old Kanban kit.

I normally wouldn't have blogged these but as I have nothing new that I can share with you yet then I though I would experiment with posting these! far so good!

I think I will leave linking for another! I always struggle with that and I wouldn't enter any challenges with these.

Apologies for not being around much...I have been making the most of the nice weather!

Thanks for popping in...stay well..stay safe..and see you again soon. :)

Love Carole xx
