two little cuties ...


Hello my crafty friends ... hope you all had a super mothers day yesterday and got thoroughly spoilt  ... it was a little sad for me without my dear Mum this year but we took some daffs over to the crematorium for her ... 

and so on to my cards ... just love this little image ... was inspired to use it by my lovely grandson Olly needing glasses for the first time ... boy was he excited ... not like the "olden days" when children wouldn't be seen dead in a pair of glasses ...

glasses are now a fashion statement I guess lol ...

oh sorry btw I could not find a boy in glasses but this could be his sister Gracie coz she has decided she needs an eye test and may need glasses (her words)

 the image is from here ... isn't she a cutie ??

have not put any sentiments on them yet ... they will go in my "ready and waiting" box !! lol

and here is my lovely grandson Olly ...

helloooo there ... tis me ... lol

wow I am back and good news we have sold and completed on our dear Mums flat ... feels kinda strange to think of other people in there ... but they are very nice and I hope they will be as happy as our Mum and Dad were when they first moved in ...

and on to my cards ... at last I can make cards again !!! ... had a bit of a lull on making them sorta lost my mojo as they say ...

thank you to all of you who have continued to stop by and leave such lovely comments ...

two cards for my granddaughter Chloe who we do not see anymore ... you all know the story ... but I keep sending cards on birthday and at Christmas ... never know if she likes them or not obviously and as I don't really know them anymore I don't really know what her likes are ... ho hum ... I try my best


 the flower on this card is a brown poundland special ... but I have glossy accented it ... never used this before but got it from the craft show I went to in Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago ... very pleased with the result ... it is a bit like enamel


the back of the card is a recycled hand made by tag ... and I was looking for a little bit of black ribbon ... sat next to me on the radiator (drying off) was an M&S blouse  ... so the label came off pretty quick ... nice little bit of ribbon eh ??

hope you are all having a lovely week ... promise to visit you if you leave a message ... and hopefully will catch up with you all soon xxxxxxxx

made this little doggie card for my lovely granddaughters birthday tomorrow ... she is puppy mad as you can probably guess ... you can see "cookie" in my side bar ... actually it is more of a little book than a card ... cant wait to see her tomorrow ... ooooo love her to bits







the second card is for a dear friend of mine for her birthday ... we used to work together but now we are both retired ... its a big birthday but didn't want to put the age on the card ...

Poor Pauline ...

my dear friend has just lost her Mum ... she died on the 21st December ... so very sad and such a hard card to make ... I decided not to put a sentiment on the front of the card ... and then had a bit of a brainwave and put it on the back cover ... well its different anyway

thank you for stopping by ... hope you have all had a super Christmas ... it was my birthday yesterday so am still in a bit of a spin ... Christmas and Birthdays are all a bit much ... think I will be like the Queen and have an unofficial birthday in the summer ... or maybe not coz I will get old pretty quick lol

well hello there my little friends ...

sorry I have been mia ... wow don't know where the time goes ... I will try to catch up with you all real soon ... have been busy with the selling of our dear Mum's flat ... and although I don't want to talk about it yet (tempting fate n all dat !!) but hopefully things are going well

It is going to be a bit of a sad Christmas this year ... but I just keep thinking ... I would not want Mum to be here if she was suffering ... Last Christmas day was very hard ... having the family to cook for and all I could think about was that I had to get round to see Mum ... so although I am going to miss her like .... oooooo everything ... I would not want her to be here if she was the same as last year

hope you all have a great Christmas
