Kalo Mina!

The post title translates as "Good Month" which is a Greek saying and that's what I'm wishing for you all :)
I haven't been able to do much crafting this weekend on account of having a social life - sometimes, fun just gets in the way!
We went to a 40th birthday and I did make a lovely card for the birthday boy but I took 2 photos (in a rush) and they're not very good so I'm not putting them up for derision!!! lol
The following day I couldn't have crafted if you'd paid me to. I was a tad under the weather!!! Tired!
I have made a lovely card this morning to send to my sons' Nanna as a "hello" card, and just to let her know we love her- ahhhhhh, I'm such a softy!

I used the papers which were included on the CD rom in the latest issue of Crafters Inspiration magazine and added some little acorns from the oak tree in my garden!

The weather's glorious at the moment so I'm off to put some more washing out on the line and make a coffee!

Bless Ewe!!!

Hi all!
As it's that time of the year where we all start with the sniffles and sore throats (me included) I just had to use this super cute digi image from Tiddly Inks and make a tissue packet cover with it!
I already used the image on a get well card earlier this month and thought it perfect for this!
I'm entering it into the Anything Goes challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog.

(It's a pity you can't see the sparkling gem inside the flower....oh well!)

That's all for now!

Autumn again!

Hi all!
Here are 2 more cards for the challenges at Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine!
Yes, I know, I've obviously got too much time on my hands - but, as they say, idle hands do the Devils' work so I think it's best to keep busy or I might get up to mischief!!!

This first one is called "rakin' the leaves" - It's a digi stamp by From the Heart Stamps and it's the birdbrain chicks who are uber cute and funny!

This next one is, again, the pumpkin pigwit image from the same company! I love their stuff - Faith Skrdla is the artist behind the images and I think she has a real talent for the quirky and whimsical!

That's all for today folks!
 I'm suffering with a sore throat and I think a cold's coming on so gonna dose myself up with copious amounts of vitamin c to ward it off (ie- I'll eat an orange!!!)

Have fun x

Hi all!
It's a little bit soggy here in Leyland this morning! It's quite mild though so not cold enough to stop me from going to the shops and spending his money!
Today's post is just to show the type of Christmas cards I've been making recently. I'm not sure, yet, which style to use this year and this is just 4 I've been playing with!

This first one is a modern card using "Sparkly pink"!!! Lol

I thought it might make a change to be non-traditional, but now it's done, I'm not sure! Still, there's 3 more to follow!

The second one is a stepper card and I used Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol paper collection.

The final one is a little simple card with a tag front - I quite like this as it's quick to make.

So, there you go! Three cards made, not sure which style to use, if any, but there's till time to play and make some more and what is it that crafters like to do most??? PLAY!!!

Have a great day
