Quick and Easy

Just to show you a card I made for my sons girlfriend's birthday.

I was very pushed for time and made it from a Kanban die cut sheet, 'Birds in the sewing room '. Add a couple of flowers, some pretty Prima paper (Annalee) and its done !

As a gift for Emma I also decorated a little wooden box..

It started like this

And ended ike this

As you can see I used those Prima Alla papers again.. will put them away now and try to use something else !

Have a good weekend

Happy Birthday Hilda

At last I can show you some birthday cards I have made recently, now that they have been safely delivered to the receipients

The Swanley Scissor Sisters had a special meeting for Hildas birthday last week. A special birthday for a special lady.

I have told Hilda for ages to get her own blog, and because I was too slow !!! getting all her beautiful birthday cards onto my blog she has finally started her own. Pop on over to Hildas blog to have a look.

This is the card I made for her, a variation on a few I have made recently, but I do like them.

I used my favourite prima paper pad of the moment, Alla and a Tim Hotz die cut. The ticket stamps are from Creative Expressions, (tickets) and the charms and flowers are from my stash.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while.
I was not very well a couple of weeks ago, then I went down to Kent and I have just got back from a long weekend away. I have now got to catch up with work but hopefully will have a few more things to show you soon.

Happy Crafting

Three (or more) little birds

Had a great weekend crafting with my sis while DB was away. So nice to get together and catch up.
We tried some brayering with limited success and made a few cards.

I can't show them all at the moment because some birthdays are coming up but I did make a quick one from the paper stack I was using.

This one is a Crafty Individuals stamp on Alla-Prima paper. Along with a flower and die cut it makes a nice simple card for any occasion.

Hope you like
