It's been a while

Hi all , its been a while since my last foray into the world of blogging, I seem to be eternally busy at the moment. I have been away for a couple of weekends, and spend time babysitting my lovely grand daughter Madeline every week, along with sewing and of course making a few cards here and there.
These are a few I have made since I last saw you.

Thanks karen, hope I am the lucky one.

A little of what you fancy

My Brief for this card was that 'The lady likes white wine, so I have tried to make this a little more feminine by adding the grape vine, and ribbon.
The stamp is white wine by stamps happen, and the vine was from a set by mary hughes, at papercraft 4 you. It was coloured with polychromos pencils, and I used glossy accents on the glass and grapes.

I actually did make a card, and this is the result of raiding Viv's bit box.
Thanks Viv it was a wonderful day

Soni's New Blog

Sonia at Scraps4fun lost her blog, and has had to start from scratch again, well what I have seen is lovely Sonia, and I will be back to look again at your lovely cards.

Hello Sailor

This card was asked for by a friend whose husband used to be in the navy,

For the red white and blue theme I used a Pink Petticoat striped background

which I added a red stripe to, some plain red and Navy card from The Paper Mill Shop,

an image off of the net, and Papermania letter stamps.

Challenge card


Life has been a tad busy lately, but all seems to be calming down a bit now, and I have finally got round to attempting the Thursday challenge on the stamps and smiles blog, hope its what was wanted.

Just noticed it looks a funny shape, I assure you it is straight, its my photography that is rubbish.
