70 plus 70!

 Hi Friends

First I must Thank you ALL so very much for the kind comments and encouraging words that you left me on my last post. each and everyone is appreciated more than you will ever know. June has once again turned into a difficult month for me so I know I will be sporadic in my blogging, but I know you will all understand and hopefully still be around when I surface to surprise you.

In the meantime......At the beginning of June one of my friends celebrated a 70th birthday...and another friend will be celebrating hers at the beginning of July...that's two of my three! Glad to say I am not quite as old as them! I know for definate that the second one at least will not be peeking at this, so I can share with you...both cards , on a similar vein.

First the June one...friend aptly named after her birth month......

This is the front of the card

and the inside......

The papers are some old Craftwork Cards (I think) and the 70 die is of course Crafters Companion.

It took some getting my head around did making this and the first one ended up in the bin...but I got there in the end and was quite pleased with the end result.

Here is my Twofer as they say......the front

and the inside...

This time the papers are from a LOTV pad called promises. I love this pad but sadly it is not available anymore.

The dies are once again Crafters Companion including the banner and balloons with coordinating stamps The Happy Birthday I am not sure of the make as I have had it in my stash for a good while (like everything else I have in the craft

Once again the first of this one went in the bin too, I seemed to have forgotten what to do from making the first one...and of course how many of us write instructions for ourselves for next time? do?...ah well lesson learnt there I guess.

I hope you are all keeping well and have been enjoying the sunshine here in the UK. Thank you for stopping by.

Till next time...take good care of yourselves and keep the inspiration coming...I keep peeking at all your wonderful creativity in the hopes that Mr Mojo will return...perhaps he has emigrated?

Love and crafty hugs to each one of you.

 Hi Friends

Today would have been mums 101st Birthday!..If you read my last post you will know she was in hospital following surgery for a fractured hip. 

Sadly she passed away on Saturday , so she didn't quite make it to the 101 but I still feel I would like to share her card with you though................what better way to celebrate her life.

A new stamp...Pink Frog Chrysanthemum love this stamp. I coloured with Copics. Matt and Layers are cut with Phil Martin nesting dies.

So proud of her, such a great age.

Thank you for stopping by, and for all the lovely comments that you left on my last post...another card she sadly didn't get to see...along with several others.

Anyway that's it for today...short and sweet. We have just have a thunderstorm here! Hope it is sunny where you are. Take care everyone and have a good week.

Catch you all again soon

Crafty hugs
