Mojo Monday 123. Go ahead Wish

A change from the Valentine Cards I have been making all week, it is my D I L's birthday soon, and I do like to get ahead with my personal cards, and I love this sketch from Mojo Monday, you can make it round or square. I used a scalloped circle from Craftworks Cards and then cut a square card into a circle as the base,and then glued the finished card to the base card.

The Algarve Jan 2010

We are back in good old blighty, and boy is it cold, actually they have had the worst winter ever in the Algarve this winter and we arrived there in the most awful rain, and it rained for a few days, but we did have some nice days too, as you can see from the above photo.
Busy catching up with all your blogs and challenges that I have missed, will try to do some crafting inbetween all the washing and ironing.

My First Easel Card

I have seen a lot of these cards around blog land, and I think they a wonderful idea, I did think they might be difficult to make but no they are easy peasy. I will definitely be make more of these.My neighbour asked me to make a card for her Dad who will be 90 soon. Hope she likes it.
It started to snow last night and hasn't stopped since I'm afraid I am a southern softy now we are so not used to so much Snow, this is the most we have seen in 20yrs. Hubby can't get to work again. But we might try to get into Town later, need some Euros for our hols. And more immediately we need milk.
