Chloe is 4!

 Hi there everyone.

Well today (in Australia) is my Granddaughter's 4th birthday. They do seem to grow up quickly but then we have only met in the flesh once when she was 18 months old  and I doubt she remembers that!. I see her on Skype of course but she is usually distracted but surprise video phone call last Friday night revealed she was very excited about her party the following day....naturally so

At 4 years old  she is into mermaids and Frozen...so I went with the mermaid theme for her card. I hope her tastes haven't changed too much since I made it......

I didn't have any mermaid images so I bought a digi from LOTV and coloured it with copics. An old Sue Wilson embossing folder for the background ad dies from my stash for the rest.

After all the agonising over what to do I quite like how it turned out and it arrived down under in record time.

I hope you are all well. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and the comments you leave me. I love and appreciate them all. blogging friends are the best. 

Take care and have a good week.

Black and White 70

 ......and a serving of glitter!  


This is a card I made for a friend of my late husbands who celebrated 70 this weekend. I.m not fan of doing male cards as one soon seems to have covered all bases applicable to that person over the years...sports, hobbies ets...so this was done with Uniko Explosions and Explosion Additions and the sentiments are also Uniko.The numbers a 'go to' from stash (not sure of make) cut twice for a bit of depth. I kept the rest flat for posting. Plenty of glitter to bring it to life.

So I hope this finds you well, so many people I hear of now eventually succumbing to the virus, but thankfully not too ill with it. if you are under the weather I hope you soon feel better.

Did you all eat lots of chocolate this weekend?..and have a nice Easter break. ....here in the UK the weather has been really good for a bank holiday weekend.Nice to have some warm sunshine, it makes one feel so much better. I got my Vit D fix sitting in the garden for a bit. 

Blogger seems to be juggling my feeds around these days and posts I have already seen appear at the top of my list again. ...so sometimes I miss new ones that are further down! Does anyone else have that happening.?

Thank you for popping by and I will see you again soon I hope.

Take care

Plain Sailing

 Hello friends!

How I wish life was plain sailing, don't you? 

A card for a male, though I guess if a female were into sailing it would serve equally well on the female front.

A quick card.... self explanatory...... the image is from an ages old Making Cards magazine for men...I knew it would come in useful someday!

The sentiment is again ages old and from craftwork cards. It just says Happy Birthday though it doesn't show well on the photograph.

Chloes birthday card has arrived in good time at the other side of the world so I will share that with you a little nearer the time. Pleased the postal system seems to be getting better.

I hope you are all keeping well and if you are under the weather I hope you feel better soon. Have a good Easter next weekend everyone...chocolate!!...yumm. Fingers crossed that Asda deliver my Easter egg (yes just the one) tomorrow and it is not out of stock!

Take care everyone and Thank You for stopping by.

Love Carole xx
