it's party timeGood Evening All

This week I have been asked to produce some cards for a lady who turns 90 in July, and this is one of them.  I thought I’d throw a funny one into the mix, just for the hell of it 😀 I like to offer a variety!

So, I’ve used an 8×8 base card, the current Mojo Monday layout and the design papers are all Portobello Road.  The image and sentiment are from the “Wrinklies” stamp set by Dimensions Fourth and I’ve coloured the partying wrinkly in with my Promarkers to match up with the design papers.

Anyway, short and sweet tonight, really must do my ironing, need my uniform for tomorrow! But I shall endeavour to be back again soon

my little starWell hello everyone,

Apologies for not having blogged for absolutely ages but I’ve been rather busy decorating my kitchen and work is just silly at the moment.

Still, I have finally managed to make a card for the first time in weeks and here it is 🙂

The image is a very sweet pre-coloured one (a little bit of a cheat) from Lily of the Valley and I’ve selected papers from my stash which match in with her dress beautifully.

The stars have been cut using my Cricut and the George & Basic Shapes cartridge and the ribbon and bow are from Docrafts.

The layout of the card has once again, been provided by the current Mojo Monday challenge – I don’t know where I would be without this website 🙂

Anyway, much as I’d love to stay, work once again beckons.

But I will endeavour to be back again soon with another creation.
