A month of birthdays...

January is a busy month for me. I have 6 birthdays, starting on the 1st and the last on the 31st... Lots of cards to make. Inspiration needed...

Oops, how much do those scales say...?

 Anyway, its not the new year yet, but I have made a decision and rejoined I still have dicounts from last time round and I did lose lots of weight because I wasn't snacking! Will let you know how it goes!!!

Less is Moore - Singing in the Rain and Forever Blowing Bubbles...

Ok, so this week is theme week at Less is Moore...
Mummy wanted a couple of thank you cards and I remebered these PaperMania stamps, so I thought it was a perfect way to do the two things!
The cards are from Craft Work Cards.

All stamps are Papermania.

The images are stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Promarkers.

My Mum loved them, I hope you like them too!

Christmas Cards...

It has been a while since my last posting. Life has been mad and random with Mummy in Addenbrooks and Albert in Papworth. He is home and waiting for bypass surgery. We are hoping to break her out for a couple of hours tomorrow!

But, life has to go on and the annual frantic Christmas card making session happened last Saturday, with me directing and BF doing the glittering (he was doing the corner rounding but couldn't make the punch work!)
Anyway, we made some mess and some great cards!

So, I was hunting around for inspiration and decided to try a layout from the Crafting Time team. I wanted to see how it works as a 12x12 scrap page before adapting it to ATC's (keep watching in January!).
I think that it has worked OK, but I still need to work on layering with Serif Craft Artist.
I picked the purple as it is Lucy's favourite colour...

Less is Moore challenge...

One layer card - One piece of card folded in half with no additional layers and minimal embellishments, where the image is stamped or printed directly onto the cardstock.
The theme is Let it Snow!
I have never had the courage to stamp directly onto a card before, but I made the ATC Christmas tags and they worked really well, so I thought I would try and recreate it.
I masked up the square with tape and then stamped the snow man, greeting and snow flakes all in Memento Bahama Blue. The images are all filled in using ProMarkers.
I put a line around the square as I wasn't completely happy with the neatness, and particularly the left hand side! Hence the simple white ruffled ribbon... The bow in the same ribbon gives balance, and I am afraid I can't cope without a bit of bling!
This is the first time I have tried a challenge, so I hope it fits!

ATC Cristmas Tags

OK, so I ran out of gift tags!
I hunted around for some scraps to make some more with and could only find my box of ATC blanks.
They are white pearl, so haven't photographed brilliantly, but never mind! You can see what I was up to....

Crafting that doesn't make mess!

My Best Friend

My lovely BF at my cousin Charlottes wedding this September.
A beautiful sunny day and all of the family together.
It was a wonderful day and great for us all to be there to celebrate.
