And there's more!

A few more xmas cards today,inspired by Kristina . Where does the time go, it's lunchtime already and I've done nothing today, must get away from this computer soon. My niece Paula had a baby girl on Monday and I have a card to make, the baby came a month early, but mother and bay are both fine, and got home yesterday. Also I am making some roman blinds for my daughters dining room.

Happy Thankgiving day to everyone across the pond, I think we should celebrate thankgiving here in the UK but maybe not so close to Christmas, don't think I could cope with two celebrations within a month or three if you count New Year.

Off to make a baby card.

2 Sketches 4 You

I received my first Christmas Card yesterday, from my brother Tony, actually I think his girlfriend Tina sent it from the both of them, if it was left to my brother nobody would get a card, which is probably why I didn't get a Birthday card from him last week, It's his birthday next week and maybe when he receives the card I made him he might just remember who he forgot, shame on you Tony. men eh!

The weather here has been awful with Gale force winds, I think I have all the dead leaves from all the trees in the street in my garden, this is the time that I don't like autumn, oh yeah I know they look all lovely with all the beautiful Autumnal colours, but not when they are wet and soggy and in my garden. Will get hubby out to clear them up when the wind drops after he has to earn his keep somehow.
There are two great sketches this week on 2 sketches 4 you. Laura's super sketch and Cheryl's bonus sketch, decided to play along with both this week, and two very different cards. I bought the little snow girl last year from Lily of the Valley and thought I should use up some of last years stash too, also I have a few little girls to send cards too.

This card is made with papers from We R Memory Keepers.Posted by Picasa

Home is where the heart is

I have a neighbour who is moving soon. They are keen gardeners and their garden is the pride of the neighbourhood, and we will miss them when they move, they are always there to give a cheery hello.

I loved this sketch at The Sweet Stop,and the flowery papers from MME is just perfect.

Birthday Card.

It was my Birthday on Sunday and thank you to everyone who sent me good wishes, I received this beautiful card from Kath, I have admired Kath card's for a long time every since I first started blogging and was so thrilled when I held one of her creations in my hands, It is certainly outstanding. I love it. Kath's so card are unique.

I had a very busy weekend, my son and his family came to stay for the weekend, and when they went home I felt shattered. I am so not used to having a full house anymore, though it is wonderful to have everyone here. I don't know how people with big family's manage, there only eight of us when we all get together.

Card Patterns

Not sure that I like the way this card turned out, something's missing.But will post it on the Card Paterns challenge anyway, no more time to craft now.

This is the last post here for a few days. Busy few days ahead. My daughter Nicola is treating me to a spa day tomorrow as it is my birthday on Sunday, and my son, daughter-in-law and grandson are coming down for the weekend. My grandson Rhys is 17 and everytime I see him he has grown taller.
