Hunkydory Butterfly and Brandon Year 7

Good morning crafty friends.

Hope you are all good today.

Brandon started Year 7 today (first year of Seniors) and he looked so handsome in his uniform....

He enjoyed his first day and was very keen to go to School this morning.  I wonder if this will last lol!

My lovely neighbour Yvonne knows I like cardmaking and she gave me lots of cardstock that she had.  She decided she wanted to have a go at cardmaking a while back and bought some goodies off Create and Craft TV.  The only thing is, when she tried it, she couldn't take to it.  She kindly gave me the items she'd bought (Hunkydory and gorgeous card blanks).  I decided I would make her the first card as a thank you from the what she gave me.  She was over the moon and here it is....


Really easy and fun to do!

Happy Birthday Flower Circles


Good afternoon crafty friends and long time no see!

The summer holidays are nearly over and what a holiday it was.  There was laughter, tears, shocks, accidents, boredom, fun, exasperation, more laughter, more tears and some temper tantrums along the way!  It was all worth it.

I had a birthday this month and I got a load of dies of my fella.  I had no idea what to do with them until I got my Quick Cards Mag No. 169 and saw these gorgeous trellis cards.  I decided to CASE one using my own papers, colours, dies etc. and here is the result.




This card was such fun to make.  I will be using the other ideas in this mag to adapt to my creations. The sentiment and flower circle are from Digi Stamp Boutique and are coloured in with ProMarkers. The papers are LOTV Nitwits.  I have heat embossed the edges of my die-cut butterflies.
