Well, the 6 weeks holidays have finally arrived and I've finally started to get back into crafting mode again - got some new toys to play with too.....  

My first card is for Super Anthony - the remit was for Anthony who has just become a RMN - Registered Mental Nurse and a big Superman lover.   I just love the little stethoscope and nurses hat!

I just noticed that I took this picture before I'd put the 'S' on Congratulations!!!!!

My second card is for a new little Garner, born on the 16th July - welcome little Ella.

I know in the crafting world that 'Less is More' but sometimes with baby cards 'More is More'!!!!!!!!!

Hope the sun is shining wherever you are!

Pretty Paula in Pink

My bestest friend of 49 years celebrated her birthday this week.   We don't get to see each other often but we can talk for hours on the phone - several times a week!   Happy Birthday Lurve!

This is a recent wedding card I made for Suzie.   I did the concertina bit slightly different and instead of edging the top layer of the concertina, I cut separate strips which I edged with the crafty edger then stuck these to the top layer of the concertina.   I dovetailed the corners to finish it off. A long project, but I was very pleased with the overall finished project.

Mother's Day Tulips

Oh how I just love these cards!   I've made soooo many (all slightly different of course).   The design came from Jackie Huckstepp (The Glitter Pot).   Jackie's was bigger and a little different but the overall shape/design was hers - isn't it gorgeous?    The stamp is Jane Gill's Tulips Woodware JGCL532.  The die is Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur de lis rectangles.

Kit-kat eating elephant?

I just love these Woodware stamps, they're just great for such a wide variety of occasions.   Phoebe (my name) was for a good friend who's just come out of hospital - not sure what is her biggest love - chocolate or cats, so she's got a bit of both with this one.   The Ellie card was for my friend who has just become a Grannie.   There is a lovely BABY and hearts on this set, I would have loved to have used them but fairies visited my work desk and borrowed them...   they left them on the floor two days later, the floor that I'd swept twice mmm....

Phoebe the Fat Cat

This is one of the new Woodware stamps http://www.woodware.co.uk/detail_display01.php?ProdID=10877&ProdSKU=FRS113 - I've named her Phoebe.   Really simple paper-piecing and some lovely googly eyes, but I think she's quite cute and I've been making several lately all in different colours.

Congratulations on your OBE!

My neighbour's cousin has been awarded and OBE - how posh!   She asked me to make a card for her, so I used Jane Gill's evening jacket template.   I downloaded the medal from google images.
