Trees and Leaves

It's time for a new challenge over in The Male Room. We make male only cards and projects and this week we want to see some
TREES AND LEAVES.
Well - out came the Lovely as a Tree set - my go to set for men - but this time I thought a different style of card was in order - a BOX CARD - take a look


I also used the fabulous Hardwood stamp for this. A gorgeous background stamp and it's huge. However I have a tip for you - buy the wood mount style. How awful would it be if you bought this wonderful stamp, opened it up and realised that you didn't have an acrylic block big enough?!
So I'm thinking that this will be my dad's Father's Day card - what will yours be? Can't wait to visit and find out!

Oh Dear

Yep - time has got away with me once again and here I am playing catch -up! I was all set to return home for a few days last week and I had loads of things planned but they all had to be cancelled at the last minute as my husband got called away to London to do some work - I have to let him sometimes as who would pay for all my crafting stash if he didn't!
All thing happen for a reason and in a way it was good I didn't go home as dad was moved from Newcross hospital across Wolverhampton to a rehabilitation hospital where he is now learning how to walk again and do all those things that you and I take for granted - just having a shave at the moment wears him out completely.
I also got to go the the Stampin' Up Regional Training day in Telford - I had loads of sneaky peaks of new products coming at the end of June plus other news and offers that I can share with you very soon.

For now though I will post some pics of my DT cards from the last week - the link to the challenges will be under each pic so do go over and see the other DT work too xx


Card with a moving part - ends Tuesday May 27th


Colours - ends Wednesday May 21st


Recipe - ends Friday May 23rd


Nature - ends Saturday May 24th.

Make My Monday - Owls

Today at Make My Monday Laura has given us the theme of OWLS. The card I have made was created some time ago from a tutorial I found on YouTube - sorry I can't remember who to credit.
It's a kind of swing card and if you scroll down to the second picky you will see what happens when the card swings open.


Please do pop over to take a look at the fab owl cards made this week and don't forget to say hi to our three new DT ladies.

It's the start of a new week and later today mum and I will be making our usual visit to the hospital to see dad. He is making very slow progress but each new day there are tiny improvements - whatever any of you are doing this week - take care and have a good one xx




Find the Owl punch HERE in my shop.

Hello - Remember Me?

Yes I'm the one who used to post regularly! OK so things have been a bit tough lately but it looks like there may be light at the end of the tunnel even if it is just a pin prick at the moment.

Today I have my DT card from CAS - Colours & Sketches to show you using these three fab colours chosen for us by Lizy


And here is my card - one of the quickest I have made in a long time!


I have used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set - perfect for adding quick splashes of colour to your cards. I had to pretty it up a bit and add some Bitty Blossoms and pearls!
