A Few cards

Hi there friends, I am back with a few quick cards I made recently, one stamped using an Altenew stamp and the other two are digital again. One was a sympathy card for my son-in-laws grandfather who died at the grand old age of 98, what a lovely man he was too.

My second card was for neighbours who just had their first baby aww, what a cutie she is too. The third one is for our nephew who is 21 on Sunday.

Will add pics of our recent holiday to Cornwall as promised later so the post isn't too long. Back with more cards soon too ;)
I am currently very busy printing lots of  'magical' pages and sayings to go with our 'magical/fairy' theme for the grandchildren at our family party soon. I decided to make a 'magical' themed treasure hunt this time, (there is often a treasure hunt!). I do make work for myself though don't I lol. Menu all sorted at least now too.
I wrote a story for them all a while ago (using their names which they all found hilarious) and have added another new story along the same theme. I bought a set of cars and two sweet unicorns as presents and I have clevery 'inserted' them into my story he he. So that's what the treasure hunt present will be too shhh! Written all clues now and printed A4 magical pages which I have all over the house now lol..... they will love it I am hoping. Phew and now for a rest!

I will try and take pics of the odd thing or two I made. I am loving am obsessed with the large lanterns just now (so much scope to add themes to them, Easter/Christmas etc.) and I made a fairy light jar to go on the wall also. Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned, I will be cooking (far too much again..I tend to cook for an army lol!) and also treasure hunting exciting!! ;)

Can I please be adopted into your family, Vee? You are the BEST hostess ever! I love a treasure hunt and love that you are going all out with this fun magical theme and the food!

And you put just as much care and detail into the card art you make for others! Each of these is perfect for its occasion and will be cherished by the recipients! Lots of hugs, Dee
