Birthday Card

Today is my Father in Laws birthday and I have made this card for him

The papers and most of the embellishments for this card came from freebies in Papercraft Inspirations magazine. The twine and brad are from my stash.

Fathers' Day

It will soon be Father's Day here in the UK and this is the card I have made for Stephen's Dad. Unfortunately I can't remember where I got the papers and tag from that I used for this card so I can't give appropriate credit so if anyone knows where they are from and can tell me I will be very grateful so that I can give credit where it is dew

Journal 52 weeks 20 & 21

I'm falling behind with my journal 52 pages as life has been very busy recently but I'm determined to keep up so here are my next 2 pages.
For week 20 the theme was Good Advice
I've been given lots of good advice over the years of my life and I found it hard to put this advice into specific words so I found some quotes on the internet that i felt summed up the essence of some of the advice I've been given over the years and this is my page

For week 21 the prompt was Top 10 Lists, I didn't find this one all that easy as I'm not a great list maker although I keep thinking I should use lists a lot more than I do. The one time I do make lists though is when we are about to go on holiday. This harks back to when our girls were small, we went camping and we didn't have much money. At that time it was imperative that we didn't forget anything as we didn't have the spare cash to go out and buy replacements, times have changed, the girls are grown up now and have fledged the nest and money isn't such a big issue but I do still make lists when its time to think about our holidays. My page isn't finished as it still looks rather bare but these are some of my lists

Birthday Card

It's my brother's birthday in a couple of weeks so when I was crafting at the weekend I made hime this card

I must apologise for the poor photo but it is wet and miserable today so I have been unable to get a decent picture. I'm scheduling this post so if I can I will get a better photo as the actual card really isn't as washed out looking as the photo makes it appear

Journal 52 week 19

Last week the prompt for my Journal 52 page was Outside In where we were encouraged to take some crafty bits and pieces outside in order to create our page. Unfortunately when the weather was nice last week I had no time to create my page and today it is raining and cold. I have however created my page today choosing just a few items to use as if I had taken them outside with me and they were all I had to use.

Here is my page

The tags are from a free download you can find here

Journal 52 week 18

Well yet again I am behind with my journal pages, I've not had a lot of time for crafting and I've had several cards to make and also two classes to prepare for so they have taken up most of my crafting time. Anyway today I have managed to get last weeks journal page done following the prompt of Observations.  To begin with I had no inspiration at all for this page but then I had a light bulb moment and remembered I had some photos that I had taken of our garden, sadly not our present garden but our previous one and decided to use those to make my page
