Birthday card

Thank you so much for you kind comments on my last post, trying hard to get back into the swing again.

My card today is made with papers and embellishments from Craftwork cards.  This is a lovely set and I feel I will enjoy using it.  I used an 8" x 8" card from Anna Marie Designs, papers from Craftwork Cards along with  half of the  handbag card and sentiment, I lined the inside of the card with the script paper and printed a verse on the other half of the handbag (forgot to photograph it) and wallah a quick card

Today has been lazy, the weather has been iffy one minute looks like its going to pour down then the sun makes an appearance but then it disappears again.  Hope tomorrow brightens up, a little sunshine really lifts the spirit.

Well off to bed now, I wish I could sleep longer in the morning as soon as 0430/0500 comes round it is bling I am wide awake and I have to get up.  The dogs are fed up with me dragging the out for walkies at 0600.  They give me a look as if to say you go we will have a long lie.

Yawn . . .  . well must go take care out there.

Bunting - repost

Hi to my fellow bloggers,  I have been MIA for a couple of months, not that I have not been following your posts, but I have had a break from serious card making, blame it on my Silhouette Cameo.  I have been on a huge learning curve with this wonderful machine and every time I log on to make a card I get distracted with all the great cutting files and projects which can be achieved with this machine.

Today I am posting a couple of projects I have been trying out.  We have new neighbours a couple of door down from us, I know Jackie and her girls as they lived in another part of the village.  The girls, Connie aged 5 and Tilly 6 months have just had their bedrooms decorated and I thought I would make some bunting for their walls.

This is Connie's

This is Tilly's

I used cutting files I bought for the Cameo and card that I have accumulated over the years, pearls and ribbon, quite effective I think.  You may have to zoom in on the pictures to see the Gingham dresses.

Photos are best I can get with the size of the bunting but Jackie and Connie are well impressed, Tilly has no choice being so young.

Hopefully now I have posted this today I may get back to card making, which I do enjoy doing.  I have been buying loads of things to make cards so I better use it before Hubby has a fit.  Every time he pokes his head in my craft room or I get a delivery he says and when will this be used then?  I have told him it will be a long winter and I will make inroads when the weather changes.  My excuse and I am sticking to it.

We had a wee holiday at Stonehaven a couple of weeks ago with the caravan and the weather was great for most of the time, I came home with a sun tan.  Hubby, the dogs and me what a nice break, my mum stayed with my youngest sister and it was a break from me for her too.  As she gets older the more immobile she gets and it hard work being with her 24/7 having to do so much for her.  Not that I am complaining but it did me good to have some time away.

As always I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations and feel honoured that you take the time to look and comment on my post.  Take care.
