Willow Sketchie design

Ooops I forgot to use a Willow Sketchie download but here's the second 90th birthday card I made using their sketch:
Again I used the Papermania Blueberry Hill paper and flowers.

Thanks for looking :)

Ooops sorry - long time no see!!!

Sorry I've been lapse in blogging this month. I'm not sure where this month has disappeared to, except that I've worked the last couple of Saturdays and been out over the weekends too, time seems to have run away with me. Still I'm thinking of the extra money for craft buys in August when we're on holiday :) I've also had a cough/cold this past week :( which has kept my energy levels low, on a plus my sister/BIL visited us just over a week ago and my sister and I went for a girly night out to see "Menopause the Musical" which was an absolute hoot.

I haven't done any crafting the last couple of weeks either :( felt fed up this morning but on seeing the Mojo Monday blog I decided to have a go at their sketch as I need to make two 90 birthday cards for residents on the court. Here's the first one:
I used Papermania Blueberry Hill patterned paper and teamed it with some dotted paper I was given free with a magazine. The card is by Stampin Up. Flowers, ribbon, the button and Doodlebug brad and numbers I already had in my stash.

Thanks for looking :) Now off to find some other blog sketches to inspire me.

Friday Sketchers # 55

I saw the Friday Sketchers blog sketch yesterday but didn't have a chance to make a card until today:
I'm pleased with the way it came out although it is a slight variation of the sketch (at the bottom) - you can't get the real effect of the card from the scanned image - sorry. The cardstock is Stampin Up and the pretty patterned paper is a new one by Brenda Walton K&Co "Madeline". It was hard having to cut into it I must say :) I used lace, pearls, flowers and Doodlebug glittered letters to finish off the card. I hope my "aunt" likes it at the end of the month. She's my best friend's Mum so not a blood relative but is very much an aunt to me.

Mojo Monday # 89

I love Mojo Monday sketches and used the sketch today to make the other anniversary card for David:
I used Craft Creations patterned paper, along with a little Doodlebug worded paper. The silver card is stardream so it shimmers and the image is the other in a set of Forever Friends Elements. I enjoyed making this card :) thanks

Sketch & Stash Challenge # 11

Good morning, it's beautiful and sunny here, hope that continues though it was a little too hot in school yesterday. Sorry I haven't been around, been looking after Mum and also making her some cards for a fayre the court is having on 13th June.

I needed to make David's anniversary cards for the 14th and wasn't sure what to do. The sketch and stash challenge blog sketch gave me an idea:
I'd just bought the Forever Friends elements especially for an anniversary card so used that, along with some new Papermania paper. I used some old heart ribbon and Doodlebug dotted paper, along with Stampin Up card. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Sure David will love it.
