Good afternoon friends, just popping by
to show you more card and bag sets I
have been making.
This is the cool aqua set, I love this
colour, hope you all approve too.

Pink Petticoat, die-namics rolled roses

I used 120gsm paper for the bag and Linen 
card for the tag/roses. The tag looks a slightly
different colour here but irl there is
 little difference. 
 The rolled roses were made using a
 Die-namics die.

Blossom card,tag and bag

Good afternoon friends, brrr it's a bit chilly
here today. Autumn is well and truly here
I think.

I have a few photo's to share with you. 
I made a few cards and matching bags and
 also a bottle  tag. This is the pink set,
 I will show you the Cool Aqua set
 in another post.

Blossom, Thank you

I just fancied making a few bags for
my SIL's & a friend with a matching 
card. As we are visiting them soon, I 
thought it would be a nice surprise. 

I will either fill the bags with some
yummy chocolates or bake some
cookies. I may add a pair of earrings
if I can find the time to make some.
They do seem to LOVE my earrings

Pink, blossom, bag

I have some clear acetate to wrap them
( the cookies/chocs) in. I will add a
 matching ribbon too. Then pop it all 
in one of the bags. The wine of course
and maybe a nice bouquet of flowers
 too ;)

The bags were a bit of a faff to make,
but after a couple of trial runs I just
went for it with proper card! Lots of 
tutorials out there so I won't add a link.

White Flourish card

Hi everyone, just popping by to share
another 'Less is More' card again.
It's a colour theme and 'Jewel Colours'
this week.
This is my second attempt, I went with
stamping, heat embossing and then 
distress inking. I then added my latest 
die...... such a pretty flourish I think.
 Sorry if you now want it too. That's
 how I end up with most of mine lol !!

Anyway come and have a closer peek ;)

Jewel coloured card

Good afternoon friends, hope you all have
the lovely sunshine we are seeing here
 today! Wow  October already........ where
 did September go to??
I am here to share another 'Less is More'
card once again. It's a colour challenge
this week and.....
Jewel Colours
This is what I came up with. We were 
babysitting yesterday so had to wait
until today to make my card ;)
I am loving these bright colours too,
I tend to stick with pastel shades. So
nice to have a change!

Anyway grab a cup of tea/coffee or even
 a glass of vino and come and have a 
closer look.

Happy crafting and enjoy your week
 everyone ;)

Green Ombre Sympathy card

Good afternoon friends, such a warm sunny
day here too. I hope it will be a nice October.

Just stopping by to show you this sympathy
 card. Sadly I have had to make far too many
of these lately.

I have heard of five deaths in the last two
 weeks ! First my elderly neighbour lost her 
dear husband. Then a good crafting friend
lost her lovely husband. 
Then my SIL lost a close friend in an 
accident. My DIL lost her granddad. Then
 a couple of days ago my closest oldest
 friend lost her husband very suddenly.
I hope that is all for now, my heart goes
out to all their poor relatives & friends.

Anyway come and  see my card, it
seems to be my 'go to' card now for
sympathy cards. I find black too
harsh and depressing.
I hope the recipients liked them too and
 found comfort in the wording. I always
try and say something uplifting.......
and can only hope it helps a little. I
used the green ombre colour on the 
insert too btw.

Thinking of You Green Ombre card

Just a quick post for a change. I made this card
for a dear friend, then disaster struck! I had just
finished photographing it and I saw a watermark
had suddenly appeared at the very edge half
 way down :(  You can't see it happened
a couple of minutes later.
I think it was the white tak stuff I used to hold
the card closed whilst taking a photo. Never had
 that happen before. Anyway because of where it 
was I was unable to hide it.
I was most annoyed as I had taken so much
 care over making it (sob sob). Never mind
I made another one which was much simpler
and more my style. I will show you that
another time.
Happy crafting my lovely friends ;)

Silver Hello card

Good afternoon friends, and a lovely warm
sunny day it is here I am pleased to say.
Hope it's as good wherever you are too !
I have my usual 'Less is More' card to
share with you today. So busy yesterday
with the 'littlies' so no time to make it until
 now, more about that later though.
It's a 'recipe' this week over at LIM 
This is what I came up after a bit of
thought.I layered some vellum after a bit of
stamping. Soft shades of blue/green,
 a touch of silver for the 'something
shiny' & a few clear sparkly sequins.
Anyway come and have a closer look......
 The usual ps. bit is below my card today
as it goes on forever lol. Ok to just see
 my card instead ;)

ps. I decided to do a 'dinosaur' day for
our grandchildren yesterday ;) Any
excuse really lol ! 
I printed out lots of dinosaur pictures/
games, bought loads of dinosaurs
 (rubber or plastic). Cut out dinosaur 'feet'
and left a trail all through the house.
They each had a dinosaur name,
Charliesaurus, Alexanderapter and Lanatops.
and crocodile 'hats' from the good old £ shop.
The children loved it, I renamed their
play tent to 'Dino Den' ....although Charlie
said it was a pirate tent still after the
last pirate day ;)
I left a trail of dinosaur cards for a garden 
treasure type hunt which went down very
 well with them. Each had their own initial & a 
number on the back and they had to bring it to
 daddy to check of a list.
The prize was a dinosaur each, ( wrapped in
 layers of newspaper so it resembled a 
large egg). Charlie was disappointed it
 wasn't chocolate though ;)
After a few more dinosaur memory games
 they had 'monster' stilt feet to walk in. Then
their most loved game the 'dinosaur obstacle
They had to pick up a small coloured ball
(dinosaur egg) cross a chair, walk on
'dinosaur' eggs ( cut out of card) without
 touching the carpet.
 Then over a bench and through the 3 part
 tunnels ( bought for last 'do' popular
 with them that!). 
The naughty daddies and granddad tried to
 catch them as they went through the tunnels
 and pretended to be dinosaurs lol.
Then they had to deposit their 'egg' into a
 large bowl and start all over again. It proved
so popular with them they used the 8 'eggs',
they I quickly replaced them again and again
so the game could continue lol. 
Those boys move sooooo fast now,so much
laughing.... it was  all a blur. I think I lost
 several lbs in the process and it tired the
 boys out.....for a while too ;)
They each got a kinder egg at the end, so
Charlie was very happy. It was also a celebration
for our eldest son's birthday (2 days earlier) so
Charlie loved helping put candles on the cake.
He helped daddy to blow them out too ;)
Cake is Charlie's passion so he had a piece too
along wth Alexander and Lana....silence prevailed.
I won't mention the 'bones' I made and cooked
 using a salt dough recipe. I hid them in damp sand
for a fossil dig.
 Disaster!!!! Alexander flicked sand in his eye and
 Charlie put sand everywhere.We gave up after that.....
I found out later all the hard 'bones' had gone soggy
 in the sand overnight so I threw them away!
Ooh sorry this goes on forever.......well done if
you read it all lol. I am already planning a
 'jungle' day next. With vines and big leaves and
monkeys hanging from them. 
Yes I am mad!!!
What would I do without grandchildren now??
