The look of Innocence

Here is the other photo taken of Me and my Brother, my brother Anthony is just 11months older than me, and as kids we fought like cat and dog. But believe me I gave as good as I got. But although now I don't see him very often I do love him.

Here is a LO I did a while ago, I was so busy doing pages of my grandchildren and other people I forgot about Me, so here is the Lady herself, Me as a baby, more years ago that I care to mention, they only had B & W then it was so long ago.

Too busy to blog....

I might not be around here for a few days as my sister Mandi and her family are coming to visit tomorrow for a few days, so no time to craft.

I am thinking of taking a break from Card-making and doing some Scrapbooking for a while, when I first starting papercrafting it was scrapbooking that was my passion, and I have so many photos that I want to scrap, so hopefully if I get my act together there may be some layouts outs to show you.

I may even upload some old pages that I have made a while ago.

Card Pattern's Sketch 15

I was asked to make a Wedding card for a wedding my Daughter-in-law is going to next month, so thought I would use the sketch at Card Patterns Posted by Picasa Sorry the photo is not so good it's a miserable day here showers and a very cold wind. Click on the picture to get a better view.

I used papers from HOTP.

Just Magnolia 5

A great sketch this week on the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog, I just love this stamp, just about right for the weather we are having at the moment, my wonderful Daughter-in-law Rhiannon is walking next week in Yorkshire to raise money for Cancer Research, do you know that cancer can affect 1 in 3 people and we all know someone which it has, but with some wonderful groups of dedicated people lives can be saved. thought I would send her this card to wish her luck, and to say hope she doesn't get too wet.

I used DCWV the spring stack, and the phrase is cut with Cricut George cart.

Card Patterns 14

The sketch this week on Card Patterns is by 20 yr old Peter van Tilburg peter is from Holland and a very talented young man with a style all his own, I think a Tim Holtz in the making here. I used some papers that I have had sitting in my draw since I first started crafting, so thought it was about time I used some of them, and the die cut squares fit in perfectly.

New magazine

There's a new magazine out called scrapbook Trends, and it is simply beautiful. It is mainly scrapbooking but also has some cards as well, and is simply full of inspiration.
The card on Page 83 was designed by Christine Penaflor and is simply gorgeous, so I had to have a go.
And this is my take on it. As I didn't have any shaped cards, I cut out the papers on my Cricut machine, glued it to a card and then cut round the card. There is also a mag called Card Trends, but didn't see it in my local W H Smith. If any one see's it kindly let me know.

Little duckies all in a row.

As hubby was away up in Edinburgh for the night I had to walk the dog at 7am this morning, not a good time of day for me, I'm not a morning person. But I must have been awoke because I actually remembered my camera, and look who I saw. She was across the other side of the lake, but when she saw me, obliged by swimming across. She has 16 ducklings but I only managed to capture 15 of them.

What's that noise?

Woke up this morning at 6.45am, to a strange noise coming from the Kitchen, wasn't sure what it was....sounded like the dishwasher....but we washed all the dishes last night....I just had to get up and investigate.
On Saturday morning's my hubby Brian gets up about 6am walks the dog and then washes his car...yes there he was washing his car before going out to play golf...the noise was coming from the dishwasher, but it was making a strange noise, so I opened it up and low and behold Brian had found a new use for the dishwasher he was washing his golf balls, well I've seen it all now...but you know what they say Golfer's play better with clean balls....well he should win today.

P. S Just to update you, Brian DID win his Golf comp. today. So it must be true!
