Birthday Girl

I was in Kent last Tuesday for my birthday celebrations with my Swanley Scissor Sister Gals.
As usual lovely crafty pressies were received (most gratefully I might add.. they were all fab) but cake aside, I most look forward to getting my lovely handcrafted birthday cards and as my good friend Trudy says, 'Art should be shared' so here goes..

Beautiful butterflies from Jean..

and Hilda,

A fab Tag from Joan

and flowers from Vicky

I'm sure you will agree how great they all are, show you the rest soon.

For Mum

Happy Mothers Day to you all out there...a day late I know but that seems to be my life at the moment.
As I said in my previous post I have been playing with my new Spellbinder dies and thought I would use them to make a Mothers Day card.

I started with a base white pearl card and layered with some grey cardstock, topped with a glittery page from my First Edition paper pad 'Isabelle'. I then decorated the card with the various die cuts and finished it off with a ribbon rose and some Prima flowers.

Its all go !!!

I know, I have been a very bad blogger...and a very bad crafter.

There has been so much going on just lately I can't tell which way is up. After my daughter had her baby she had the news that she was moving so all were roped in for the big day. The up side was that I got to babysit my new grandson for the first time when he was three weeks old.

After all this rushing around and catching up with work I felt that I had lost my crafty mojo...but DB was away this weekend and I gave myself a good talking to and got on with some cardmaking.

This is a belated new home card for my daughter.

I have had the heart paper for quite a while but don't remember where it came from, I used the Go Create Frame, Pointy #1 and printed out my message on the computer.
I finished it off with a Martha Stewart heart punch and a mini peg.

Somewhere in the last week or two I also had a birthday and my beloved bought me some Spellbinders fleur de lis dies that I have been playing with, more to show soon.

Am heading off to Kent tomorrow to celebrate my birthday with my Scissor sister this space for more wonderful creations from them !
