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

http://melonheadzillustrating.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/we-have-our-winners.html

dont know if you can see but I have a slice taken out of the right hand side of both cards ... makes them a little different ... saw this on create and craft today ...




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
