Hello blogland! Rather late than never as they say!! Had such fun at Ballroom last night that I forgot to post a blog for this morning! My toes are fine by the way!

My card today is just very girly - roses and a butterfly and lots of pink!! Beautiful Spellbinder dies and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Have a good evening everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

Love and light

Persian inspired

Morning friends! Back to work today, no children yet though, so should be fairly peaceful!!

I haven't put a sentiment on my card today, it's just nice to have one in my stash that I can use for any occasion.

The dies are from Spellbinders Persian Accents - absolutely love them!

Have a good day, and hopefully see you all tomorrow! We are going to our first Ballroom and Latin class tonight, so really looking forward to that! Will update you tomorrow how it goes, and what colour my toes are!!

Love and light

Birthday Club

Morning friends! Bank holiday Monday - the house is quiet, the whole day stretched out in front - lots of crafting to come!!

My card today is for Ann, who is part of the Birthday Club I joined. It is really difficult making a card for someone who you don't know, so I have kept it as simple and generic as possible!

I love brown and pink together, and Spellbinder dies can make anything look really elegant! I hope Ann likes it!

Back tomorrow, still have the rest of the week off work, so hopefully get lots of cards made!

Love and light

Happy Easter!

Morning Friends! Happy Easter to everyone, hope the Bunny brought everyone loads of lovely chocolate! Also hope he didn't freeze his little tail off - it's freezing here, very damp and very cold!

Today's cards isn't really an Easter card, more a Spring card to remind us that it is supposed to be Spring and warming up!!!

I have the family coming over for lunch today - roast dinner, and strawberries and icecream and apple pie and icecream for dessert! Yum!!

Back tomorrow friends - hope you all have a good day!

Love and light

Turning 20!

Morning Blogland! One more day til the Bunny comes to visit!! Hope everyone is ready for a chocolate overload!

This card is for my nephew who turned 20. I always struggle a bit with male cards, so tend to try and keep them as simple as possible.

Have a good day everyone, and be back tomorrow with another card...

Love and light

Elegant Chair

Hello friends! Good Friday, and it was actually!! Nice and chilled, although this horrible weather is holding on!

My card today is winging its way to New Zealand as we speak, as it's my Godmother's birthday next week. I couldn't really go for anything too elaborate as it had to go in the post, so I kept it as simple and elegant as possible!

I hope everyone has a lovely evening, and I'll be back again tomorrow with another card!

Love and light

More pink roses!

Morning friends! Well the sun is shining this morning, but still chilly, so there might be hope for my two weeks off yet!!

This is a birthday card for my deputy headteacher at school! I have used some paper I had in my stash which has vintage postcards all over it. I used my trusty Spellbinders to cut out a layer, some ribbon , distressed all the edges, inked all the edges with tattered rose distress ink and added some lovely roses from Orchid Crafts!

Enjoy your Sunday, hope you all have a relaxing and crafty day!

Love and light
