Sketch Saturday Challenge 48

Oh what a miserable day we are having, it looks like rain but it hasn't yet! Just thought I'd show a quick card I made using some stash from my buy at the weekend, it's all from craftwork cards apart from the stamp, I think it's Kars. It also fits in with the challenge over at Sketch Saturday.

Craft Stash!

Oh what a busy weekend, I feel worn out today so just blog hopping for a change, lol. Friday night went out (girls night), Saturday morning up early for the Creative Stitch show at Aintree, had a great time, could have spent hundreds probably but I didn't I was really good only spent £45 which is really good (I think?!) Off to the Happy Stampers show in Port Sunlight in 2 weeks time, so that is why I was good at the Aintree show! Sunday went to a christening, so all in all a very eventful weekend - need to chill out today, but I have made a card with some of my new stash, so will post it later, but here is a photo of my little bit of stash!!

Mum's Birthday

Well, it's another glorious sunny day here again, could this be the start of summer I ask myself?!
Probably not,lol. I thought I'd just show you the card I made for my mum's birthday, the papers are from a scrapbook kit I got from QVC and the stamp is SU, I used copic pens to colour it in.

I would just like to thank everyone who has visited my blog, left me lovely comments or become a follower, I can't believe how addictive this "blog hopping" is, but I love it! All have a lovely day and then back to work tomorrow (groan!)

Take care,

Sad Day.

It's a bit of a sad day here in Liverpool, it's the 20th anniversary of the 96 fans who were killed at Hillsborough in 1989, the strange thing is you don't even have to know anyone who died to feel the sadness, but the nice thing is the whole city comes together and both sets of fans whether they be reds or blues. I've just taken my hubby and my mum to Anfield stadium for the memorial service, I couldn't go, have to look after the boys.

Take care

My First Post!

Hi everybody, would just like to welcome you to my new blog, at last! It takes a while to work it all out but with the help of my 11 year old son and Maxine who I met on the trimcraft site, we did it! Thank you for your help Maxine, I really appreciate it.

Well here goes with my first project, I made this box from a tutorial I saw on splitcoast stampers it's a really good site for inspiration and the box was really easy to make, the papers are K&Co, the flowers are papermania.

Hope you like it
