Happy 40!



Sharing a card I made recently for a 40th.  Trying to work my way through my Studio Calico Card Kits - mixing them all around - don't think many items from the same kit!  The fun bright coloured doily and patterned paper was from the Penny Arcade Kit.  The white ribbon was from a kit I can't find the name of! and I just love using dymo embossed tape for the sentiment.

Thanks for peeking.

Good Luck!



I know it's not currently exam time but I had this sheet of 6x6 patterned paper sitting on my desk with the sentiment printed on it.  I decided to use it rather than trash it!

I added some twine to the label/tag after I photographed it!

Thanks for peeking.

Tis the season!

 Supplies:  Mod Tree Die - Simon Says Stamp, Pink cardstock -
 Penny Black, pp - My Minds Eye, enamel dots - MME, dymo 
embossing tape and machine stitching.

I know I should be sharing a spooky card today! Oh Well!!! Here's what I have!

I made this using non traditional colours but love the hot pink and aqua together.  I used woodgrain effect patterned paper for the tree although it is so thin it is difficult to see the pattern in the photo!.

Shoot for the Stars!

Supplies:  pp - Dear Lizzy for American Crafts (SC), 
red cardstock - Canson, black versafine ink, white stars -  
Blue Note Card Kit (SC), sentiment stamp - SSS, 6x6 card 
blank, clear acetate and machine stitching.

As you know I love shaker cards and made this quick one without the fuss of hiding the "mechanism" of the shaker by using machine stitching to sandwich tiny enamel stars between a layer of acetate and patterned paper (Studio Calico - Marks & Co Card Kit).

A fancy 40!

Supplies:  Pale pink pp - Fancy Pants (Sugar Rush), dotted pp - 
Paislee Press (Office Hours), tomato red cardstock - Canson, 
Underground Card Kit digital elements, 
white alpha numbers - Basic Grey, copic R17,

A quick share - very difficult to photograph this one!  When I stood it up you couldn't see the square back of the card (the curve on the front got lost!).

When I saw a creation by Aga using this digi I had to purchase the set - The Underground Scrapbook Kit.

Thanks for peeking.

York is off to start his next adventure!

This boy "York" joined our family last year on 21st October - you can see how tiny and adorable he was below.  The photo above was taken last week by his "new" puppywalkers (who are amazing! - long story! but we were blessed with the new family that welcomed him into their lives).  They upload nearly daily photos of his adventures which has let us see him grow and develop into an amazingly, confident dog.  He is starting his next adventure at the end of the month.  He heads off to "big school" where he is going to train to hopefully become a Guide Dog or Assistance Dog/
 We wish him and his siblings in the "Y" Litter every success in their training.  If you want to find out more about the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind - check out their website here.  
Okay - alert - two more cute puppy photos below!.
Can I go sailing too? I will fit in this bag!
Butter wouldn't melt!!! Yeah right!!!
 Thanks for peeking.
