Chloe is 3!

 Hello friends...hope you are all well and have been enjoying the sunshine and longer days here in the UK.

Today it is my Granddaughter's 3rd Birthday. Sadly of course she lives in Australia and so I am unable to share in her excitement and I have not heard whether the card I am about to show you has reached her yet.

I am not sure what they call this type of card......

All the stamps are Crafters Companion balloon stamps with matching dies and the papers are from an old paper pad in my stash.

I was quite pleased with the result as it is the first time I have done this style and the first time an idea in my head has actually made it to the card without changing it!

Well I mentioned sunshine and as I look out the window now it is drizzling with rain....the gardens need more than a drizzle though I have to say.

Thank you for stopping by and sticking with me as I know my blogging is a bit sporadic at present. I have been and visited you all but blogger seems very hit and miss with its feeds and also sometimes I read a post and then two days later it appears back at the top of the list again as a new post!! Does anyone else have that issue? Very confusing (it doesn't take much)...lol

Have a good week everyone and if you are in the UK and heading for the long bank holiday weekend...enjoy...lets hope the weather gets just a bit warmer for sitting outdoors.

65 Birthday Wishes

 Hello everyone..time to play catch up here!

I hope you are all well, and if you are in the UK, adjusting cautiously to Lockdown easing. I know I am not finding it easy.

I have done a bit of crafting these past weeks when the mood has allowed me. I had a special card to make for a good friend who celebrated an 'in between big' birthday.......here it is...

I used Uniko .........'Simply Organic Additions' and corresponding dies and 'Simply Said Blocks' for the sentiment. 

The numbers I think may be a tonic set...cut in glitter paper. 

A few dots of glitter to finish off .

Finally got my hair cut yesterday (after over 4 months) as hairdressers here re-opened their doors , so thankfully at last the old long haired grey woman that was stalking me has disapeared..lol 

I'll try not to be so long away next time, so till then, many thanks for popping by and take care of yourselves.

Happy Easter

 Hello blogging friends! I hope this finds you all safe and well.

The lovely sunshine that the UK has been experiencing these past few days has really brought 'spring' on in the garden. It has never the less disappeared today to be replaced by a mist like rain and blanket of cloud, and a bit cooler. I do believe snow is forecast for the weekend too!

 My favourite colours at this time of year are yellow and purple and with that in mind I found two digi images (Uniko I think|) that I had coloured with copic pens a while back and so I made them into Easter cards.

The cards are from my stash which I ran through an old embossing folder for a bit of added interest. Good to be using up some discoveries from the past...speaking of which, I found my wobbler springs the other day! Remember? ....those I needed for the Christmas tree a bit back? 

My mojo is still very lacking (it obviously can't get back from its holiday) but these did spur me on a bit and I have done a bit more creating which I will share later. 

I wish you all a good Easter break and 'Thank You' for popping by and sticking with me. 

Don't eat too much chocolate!
