Well it's Sunday already ...

How does the week go so quickly ? Just though I'd pop on and show you some cards that I've made this week. Then I thought I'd do a bit of blog hopping to visit my blogland friends and see what you've all been up to.
The BnW card was made from bit and bobs from my stash, the duck one is a free image off a blog I found whilst hopping one day, the paper, the card and the greeting are SU and the rafia is from my stash. The Welldone card I've used SU image and deco'd it, I made the Lplate and then tore it and the greeting is by Papermania. My gorjus shopping gilie is a Mo Manning image, the paper is Dovecraft and the card is SU. Everything else is from my stash.
After nearly 2 years I still haven't managed to work out how to evenly put more than 1 picture in a post. I'l get it one day am sure.
Well I don't know about you but we are on Easter Countdown only 5 more sleeps to Easter and the end of school for 2 weeks. Acccording to my DS he's getting 400 eggs. Uuuurrrmmm I don't think so. Oh the disappointment next weekend. It must be wonderful to be 6.
Am off to grab the little monkey and get him bathed before bed and school again tomorrow.

Good Sunday Morning ...

And what a lovely day it is too. All sunny and bright, different from yesterday's grey day. let's enjoy it while it lasts LOL.

This is a Golden Wedding card that I made for an order. I used crafter's metal for the hearts. The image is Papermania stamped in black Stazon. It's dry embossed and then cut out. 1 is stuck directley to the matt and the other is stuck with a foam pad. The paper and matt card is DCWV, the flowers and brad are from my stash and the sentiment is from a set I picked up recently. Can't remember if it's Papermania or not. Oh hum memory like a sieve.

Off out with the MIL in a bit to see what we can find.

Have a lovely day.

I made some cards GASP !

For the shop. MIL asked me for something a bit simpler and here they are and very pleased with them I am. I just love that bird in the heart, it stamps beautifully. Not bad for a free stamp off a well known craft stamping mag. The cocktail and pint are SU and my gorjus boy is one of Mo's.
DS has been off school today with a sore throat and temp. He seems to have picked up a bit now but he has been quiet all day. Yes Auntie Sarah and Nannie mum did say quiet. Unusual for him not to be chattering away to himself.
I'd better crack on with tea. Oh yes I feed him aswell. Might be back later if i can get into my craft room.

I hope your sitting down ...

Yes 2 posts in 2 days. WOOHOO ! Must be on a roll. I've been and visited and commented on most of my fav blogs. Big round of applause !
Have got a few chores to do then and then its up to my room to create something. Not sure what yet but there will be something.
DS is on an inset day so he's watching TV at the min and then it'l be the WII or DS. Might pop over to the park later for a bit. See what he wants to do later.
Well I'd better go and get sorted and then I can crack on and get into that craft room of mine. I've got some new stamps that haven't even seen an ink pad yet and they're calling me. Shameful I know. Oh hum.

I'mmmmmm hereeeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!!!!

Yes I'm back, not that I've actually been anywhere exotic or anything. I'm off work at min and have been busy making cards for the shop and haven't had much blogging time.
These are just a few of the cards that I've made, that I've remembered to take pics off.
I'm hoping to get at least 1 challenge done this week and some blog hopping done so that I can catch up with my blogland friends.

You can catch up with her 1st week over on the Love Heart Home blog (when I've written it LOL).
Well thats me for the min, I need to go and have a kip. I'm not sleeping at night so am tired in the day. Oh hum !

Wishing all the Mum's out there a wonderful day. Will post a pic tomorrow of the card DS made me at school. It's beautiful.
