A new baby niece!

I can finally share this card I made for my sister-in-law who gave birth to her baby girl this morning, welcome to the world little one and big congratulations to Stephanie and Mark.



I’ve been asked to make some cards for Docrafts!!

I got a message today from the Editor and have been asked to make 3 cards to feature in the Talent Spot section of the Creativity Magazine in May. They are sending me all the products and I have to have the finished cards back to them by 9th March. I feel quite chuffed as they asked me after seeing my cards in my gallery!! I just hope my mojo doesn’t do a disappearing act!!


Laura’s 19th birthday and my bargain Flip video camera

Laura at 2 weeks old – the very first time I held her.

Yesterday was our tiny baby girl’s 19th birthday. Who ever would have thought that tiny bag of sugar size baby would grow into this beautiful, clever young woman – well she has and where the last 19 years have gone I do not know!! We feel very old. All the kids went out last night to celebrate and Russ and I went to The Bell for a lovely meal and celebrated our daughter’s birthday in our way as they celebrated in their way!! Happy Birthday my darling, we are all very proud of you. xx

I got an absolute bargain this morning on Ideal World, a flip HD video camera for £79.99! They retail for double this normally but this was on special for an hour and I managed to bag one! It will be so handy in Florida as it fits in your pocket but the quality is astounding and it is simple to edit and upload and email videos just by flipping the usb and plugging into the laptop, great for sharing whilst we are away. I have wanted one for ages and it was almost as if I was meant to flick channels and catch this!


House Mouse

This is an 8×8 card, I have never made one this big before but quite like it. It fits with the House Mouse decoupage images really well. I just love this image, look at the cute little mouse peeking out from the hole in the recipe card!! The flower I made in SCAL and cut on the Cricut. I put a spacer and pearl in the centre.
