Sepia Patchwork Pals

Made for another of my January birthdays! I made this into an easel card. The card and image have a lovely pearlescent sheen and the image is slightly embossed. You can’t really see the effect on the photo as the light is awful today.


Forever Friends Black & Gold CD

I finally got my FF Black and Gold CD and made this card today. The colours are more muted and although the bears are still the same colour, it is primarily black and gold as it says and a bit more sophisticated for more grown up cards!! I have loads of birthdays in Jan and Feb so better get making some more!!


Christmas presents

My eldest daughter and her lovely family

A few pics of the kids with their presents. We had a lovely Christmas and we are all spending New Year’s Eve together for the first time so we are really looking forward to it.
Happy New Year to everyone, hope 2011 brings all you wish for.


A little new year gift for SCAL users!

I am having great fun using SCAL and have made 3 scut files and thought I would share them with anyone who would like them. You can grab them from here:

These are frame shapes which can be used as a card or mat

and this one

which is a heart button with slots for ribbon.

Hope you like them, enjoy!


Mini crackers

I found these cute little chocolates in M&S with little crackers to put the chocs in, so bought one and made a pattern for more. They are each filled with a chocolate penguin, snowman etc. Just a cute little decoration for the tree or table. They are 4″ long.


12 Days of Christmas giveaway

over on the SVG Cuts blog here go and take a peek – they are giving away some great prizes!

I discovered them yesterday quite by chance and have missed 7 of the days but am going to enter from now on!! SCAL is a fab programme that allows you to cut so much more using your Cricut (which I hope Santa brings me!) and gives you much more freedom. SVG Cuts have fantastic files some freebies and some at really reasonable prices which allow you to cut such cute things.


Black and White Joy card

I’ve not had a very good week healthwise and have been in a lot of pain. I spent this afternoon with my lovely daughter and grandchildren and made this quick card with just black and white card and some silver snowflakes as I needed one to send.


Snow Pictures!

 Untouched snow!

Tilly not looking very impressed!

Liam with some bread for the birds.


Liam – snow over his wellies!


Ryan Katie and Liam – so much fun!


Snowball fight

Laura got hit by a snowball!

Had to post some pictures of the snow as we rarely get it this deep here! This is my children and grandchildren in the garden playing in it!! Not sure who was having more fun the grown up kids or the babies!!!
