Happy April fools day

Good morning and Happy April fools day … beautiful start to the day but the rest of the week is not so good apparently … I don't really rely on the weather forecast I think it is better to actually wait until you wake up in the morning and look out of the window lol ...

anyway today is my dear Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary neither of them are with us anymore but I wish I could spend an hour with them both chatting …

Dad was in the Royal navy and had to get a special license to get married and April 1st was the only available date (well that's his story anyway)

here is there wedding photo



April 1st 1950



thank you for stopping by and if you can leave a message I will visit you too … have a great week

Happy Valentines Day all ...

  … Happy Valentines Day all ... and more importantly Happy birthday to my lovely son he will be round later as I am honoured to be asked to do his wedding stationery ...

his new fiancĂ© Kelly is lovely and they both asked me if I would like to do the jobbie … and said if I decide it is too much or I don't enjoy it I can bow out at any time … what would I not enjoy eh ?? … a chance to have a BIG play but wow busy cutting our hearts at the moment ...

any way here is Shaunie's birthday card he is a bit of a steam punk lover well they both are here they are at a steam punk experience
Shaun and Kelly's steampunk experience




here is Shaunie's birthday card
here are two valentine cards that I made dear hubby … the first one is one I sent him last year … ha ha … he wont remember … coz the second on I had fun making but it is a bit strange … I will still give it to him tho but it is not a mantlepiece pleaser lol

Last years card (lol)

had fun with the hearts but a bit of a fussy card !!

one of those cards we hate doing !!

Hi there my crafty friends … had to make one of those cards we all hate doing … a sympathy card for a dear friends Dad well for my friend really … I have known her since we were 5 years old and her dear Dad has just passed away

and the second card was made using bits from the works … went there yesterday with my dear sister … I got an embossing folder for £1.50 and those quotes dies for £4.00

the pink arrow background paper was made from the packaging but if you look behind that you can see the actual embossing folder in white well worth the money … I love the works

A sad card 

all from the works

Hope you are all ok and not snowed in anywhere we are promised some snow again tonight but we never got it on Tuesday night when it was promised so not sure what we will wake up too

thank you for stopping by … have a good weekend xx
