I made these 2 cards from left over pieces from 2 larger cards. I haven't put the larger one's on as they didn't photograph very well.

I have had a very busy day today, been to have the stitches out of my cheek, from when I had the mole removed last week. While at the doctors the nurse thought it a good idea for me to have my swine flu injection. As I have been deliberating whether to have it or not it is now done, and thankfully I don't have to think about it anymore.

Well I am going to have a break from Christmas cards and going to make some baby cards, I will share them when I have made them.

Well that's all for now have a nice evening.

I love this card, teenagers are really hard to make cards for, but this is just perfect. I cannot take credit for the painting that was done by Jane. Thanks for helping me out it is really appreciated.
I found some bright jazzy backing paper and matted and layered the images with some holographic card to give it a lift. It is finished off with flowers punched out of the left over paper and a little rosebud in the middle and as always a charm.

This is a very rare photo of me and my daughter Lisa. I cannot remember when we last had a photo taken together. I was totally banned from putting this photo on face book so thought I would share it here instead.
Lisa joined us on our night out but managed to stay out of the photo's,.
I have been making cards, had a break from Christmas and now doing some birthday cards which I will share with you later

I have had a lazy day today. I have made 3 Christmas cards one of which is above. This is a Kanban sheet and I got 3 cards out of 1 sheet so this makes it good value.
I have just added some ribbon and gems.

I had a really good birthday and thank you to everyone who made it special, for all the lovely cards, presents and text messages.

The long awaited night out tonight I am really looking forward to it.

This is one of the 10 cards that I made today. I have used the forever friends again, you get such a lot in one pack they are very good value for money.

I have used the bo bunny papers this is a double sided one and I have used both sides, I have put ribbon round the centre to hide the join. The christmas trees are cut out of a sheet of bo bunnt paper and finished off with a message.

Christmas Card

This is the only card that I have made today. I have used a decoupage from the Forever Friends,

and punched out a snowflake with a punch I got from Running with Sissors. I have also hung a

beautiful father christmas charm from the snowflake. I am addicted to charms at the moment

and they are on nearly all my cards.

I have had a lovely afternoon out shopping with my very special friend Jane. Thanks Jane you

are an inspiration and wonderful friend xxx
