I have made this card for a friend who had a baby boy on Tuesday, Thomas James. Congratulations Gemma & James.

I have made a large easel card and will make a box for it to fit in. The image is from my very good friend Jane and it came already painted lol. Thanks Jane your a gem. I have used baby backing paper from Craft Creations and bazzil from RWS. I have used a Martha Stewart boarder punch and decorated with ribbon from my stash. All finished off with flowers and a charm.

I also want to wish Tracy a very special friend a very very happy birthday. Have a great day and enjoy your girly day tomorrow. Lots of Love. xxx

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather, i seems to hot to craft, but cards must be made. This is a baby card I have made for a friend. They all seem to be boy's at the moment. I have another friend about to give birth any day and know that is a boy to.

I have made the card like a book. I have used the Forever Friends decoupage and decorated it it with flowers and a charm.

The inside I have made a pocket to put a gift voucher or money into. Everything used is from my stash. I keep using things up but it never seems to go down. Oh well I will keep trying.

Enjoy the rest of the warm weather, hope it lasts.

This is the card I have made for my next door neighbours. Again it is an easel card and forever friends decoupage. I didn't have just the right color of flower so punched them out of the backing paper I have used. All finished with a charm and glitter. Congratulations to you both. Cannot wait for a cuddle.

This is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge. I have painted the image with distress inks and used backing paper from the Wild Asparagus range. I have added the flowers a charm and highlighted the flowers with stickles.

Sorry this is a short blog but have had a very busy day and am feeling tired now.

Just thought I would share this story with my readers. My grandson Caden who is just 5 years old had been learning about the Icelandic volcano at school this week. When I saw him today we were sat chatting about school and that his best friend had gone on holiday to Turkey for a week.

Caden said he had told him to be careful in the aeroplane because of the stuff from the volcano could get in the aeroplane and make it crash when it gets to Turkey. I said but Caden the volcano is in Iceland not Turkey. He looked at me as though I was stupid and said Nanna ready for it ......they have moved it. bet you all didn't know that did you . lol . I was then informed that did I know that everything in Turkey is free, a child's interpretation of Fully Inclusive.

I do love the innocence and the interpretation of children. Caden I do love you

Hope this has made you all smile to
