On a Roll

Well at last I seem to be on a roll with getting cards done. getting a nice selection in my stock box now ready for the card party I am doing on Tuesday evening.
Today I am not getting on as well as yesterday, full of cold. The day didn't start to well. got a load of washing on and the spin cycle decided to give up,so now I got to get a new washer.It will have to wait till Monday now.so got the wet washing out and drove over to mother in laws to spin it. thank god she only leaves up the road.
will try and do abit more card making today as I don't plan much else. Tomorrow Andy and myself are going to London, to watch spurs play, cant wait soooooo looking forward to it, as we have never ever been.
not anything else to tell you..........ooohhh yes there is we have had 2 new arrivals within our families this week. On Tuesday My cousins partner gave birth to a baby boy, and on Thursday Andy Cousin gave birth to a baby girl.
Anyway here are three cards I made yesterday.

Ozzy loves his football

I just had to get the camera out tonight and video Ozzy. He loves to watch the football on the telly. Normally he comes and cuddles up beside Andy or myself and watches it. Buttonight he decided to stand in front of telly and watch, jump and bark. heres a little footage...........after 3/4 of an hour the bark started to get on our nerves......hope its not going to be like that every time we sit and watch footie.

used the famous cuttlebug, then painted holy leaves with H2o's, layering onto green mirror card, coloured peel off green.........don't use many peel offs these day, but have so many Christmas ones.


Cuttlebugs been working again, after embossing this I coloured some of the dots Red, cut it into four pieces layering onto red card and then arranged onto a A5 white card, adding a bow down side and again colouring a Christmas peel off red. may just have to make a few more similar to this one.

Been Playing

I haven't done any blogging in a while now and thought it was time to give it a new look. wondering how people got different designs. So I spoke to a dear friend and she told me what I had to do.

I have been busy making cards for 60th birthdays, the person recieving these cards are my mother in law and her twin sister.

This card is for my hubbys aunt from us,

this one for hubbys mum from us

this is for mother in law to give to twin sister

this for from twin sister to mother in law

and finally I made this one for father in law to give to mother law. used greeting card factory to make this one.I decoupaged the rose heads and added some stickles to give alittle sparkle.


that is now all 60th cards made, next are cards for hubbys 40th birthday.

Thanks for taking the time in having a gander
