Just to let everyone know that we have a Cricut club once a month here in LINCOLN UK. Everyone is welcome but places need to be booked to ensure there is room for everyone, so just drop me a line to ensure you get a place.

It's a great friendly group even if I say so myself.

Golfing Birthday

Quick card today it was my wonderful Hubby's Birthday at the weekend and I wanted to make him a golf themed card. I had a good look through my stash and couldn't find what I wanted. Of to the internet and on to Craft's U Print where I found this lovely card to print. I know it was very lazy of me but I just wanted something on the golf theme and different from last few years.
Please forgive me but I just wanted to share it with anyway, as it's still very lovely.

Golden Wedding Anniversary

Today the card I have to share with you is a card I have made for a friend at work.
It's her Mum and Dads Golden Wedding Anniversary and she came to see me and asked if I would make a card for her. Wow what an honour to be asked to make a card for such a special occasion.
I have used an 8 x 8 card. After a little look through my paper stash I found wedding papers. Most were more of a silver wedding theme but then the last two pages were just perfect.
They had a lovely golden theme.
I used my Cricut to cut the shape for the centre one a little larger than the other.
I cut some gold swirls with a Marianne die.
I used the lovely rolled rose and edged with my Soft Suede Stampin-up ink.
The little leaf was made using the Marianne punch and emboss leaf.
Finished of with a few gems.
Thanks for dropping in, love to hear your comments.

Funky Hands Challenge- Celebrating Spring

Well I can't beleive the lovely weather we're having it makes you feel so much brighter.
I have had a busy few days in my Craft cabin with the sun shining through my blinds and open door, it's so nice. I love to be able to go to my cabin and sit with the door open and listen to the world go by, it so peaceful and pleasant with birds singing.
Ok back to what I was surposed to be doing, showing you and telling you about what I have done.
This birthday card which I'm entering in the Get Funky
The papers are from Craft the year Away CD, I have chosen to use Marching on Collection as I loved the colours and thought as the month is March it woud be lovely.
The Ribbon is from my LITTLE Collection (I can hear you girls shouting little !!!), I have a bit of a thing for ribbon; must get a couple of rolls everytime I go somewhere. A girl can never have enough ribbon!
I used one of my nesties to cut the centre piece and stamped Happy Birthday.
Oh next for the exciting bit, I have loved and wanted this stamp set for so long, it's a stampin-up set (Vintage vogue) which I have used to stamp the flowers and the foilage around the edge.
Not forgetting the ink being used was island indigo, so a big thanks to Hev for enabling me with this purchase !!!!
Thanks for popping in, hope you like my creation.
I always love to hear your comments.

Mother's Day card

Sorry I've not been about for a while, I've been busy doing lots of other things.
Just a quick post as I'm having problems getting my new Laptop sorted.

The card is made from some very pretty pearly card but the photo doesn't show it of to well, trust me it's lovely card.
