I made this card for a friend to give to her niece. It was a quick and easy card as I am also trying to get Christmas cards made as well. The backing paper is Papermania, Capsule Collection from the Aqua pad. I am loving these papers. I got them from Hobbycraft when I went with Jane. They also do a other colours and I also got the The Red Hot Pack. I have backed it on black card and just put some ribbon around the centre. The decoupage is from the Kanban range. It is all finished off with a flower, charm and some gems all from my stock. The gems I have had for years just forgot I had them, so they are getting used up now.

It has been a change to make some birthday cards instead of Christmas, but must get back to making them or I will be buying mine. My craft room is an absolute mess and I really should tidy it but am thinking it can wait till all the cards are finished, my famous last words.

I have had a lovely day today with my granddaughter Ieasha and a friends daughter Caitlin. The girls had never met before but after a few minutes were chatting away like they had known each other forever. I am sure they are going to be good friends.

We spent the afternoon making cards. The cards below are the one's Ieasha made.

The next set are the one's Caitlin made. They have both made some beautiful Christmas Cards all there own ideas and designs. It was so nice to be crafting with 2 giggly girls and to hear them chattering away.

The afternoon was such a success we have arranged another one when they are going to do some stamping and painting, that should be fun. Thank you girls for a lovely fun filled afternoon xx.

Just a quick post as I wanted to share the girls cards with you.

Hello again everyone I am sorry it's been such a long time since my last blog. I just don't know were the time goes. This is a card I made for my friend to give to her boyfriend on his 21st birthday. I have done a gate fold card and overlapped the car image so as not to use ribbon.

I also stamped out his name and then punched the letters out. The alphabet stamps were my bargain of the month 99p from The Range at Scunthorpe.

I have used some of the forever Friends images on the inside and finished off with a verse.

Have a nice evening everyone and hopefully I will be back tomorrow to blog again

Thank you for reading
