Aren't I adorable?

Made this card for my Dad, who loves Orangutans (as I do!) its getting harder to make cards for him as Ive covered most grounds with this theme now :s

The top 2 atcs are made for a swap on a great little forum called magicalcrafts...vintage theme, perfect small project to get me into a bit of crafting with having so little time!

The bottom 2 I made for my dear friend Liz :) She loves her atcs and its because of her I perservere with trying to do them! lol (thanks Liz :)

Nephews 18th

My nephew is 18 this month, and joining up with the army (I have such mixed feelings about that!) Really hard age to make a card for ( for a male anyway, but then arent they all?!? lol)
Thanks to Paula for the help with the 3d sheet :) (I used a freee template to do the 18 card, and free backing graphics for the camoflauge)

His mum thinks he will love it. I do hope so :)

Nephews Footie Card

Cuddly Buddly designs came to the rescue yet again when I was completely stumped as to what to make for my nephews 11th birthday card! this collection has proved invaluable when it comes to those awkward mens cards with a personal touch....... how did i live without them before?!

Thanks for the comments left, after such a long time away from my blog, i was dubious anyone would even remember it! lol sadly I dont get as much time to craft at the moment, but will post whatever I do make, the enthusiasm is bubbling away, its just finding the time to fulfill my creative urges! lol :)

Comissioned Glass piece

As ordered by someone for their Spurs loving boyfriend!

Thought it would take me ages to do, but whipped this one out in just over an hour, good job really as I only had an afternoon to get it done before they went away on holiday! lol

Its been a while!


Well, its been a long time since i last posted anything new on here,mainly due to the downturn in events with my dads health, leaving me little time ( and enthusiasm!?) to craft...
But in the meantime, heres a few bits ive done recently, shall list more over the next few days...
got a hectic weekend ahead, my brothers getting married! (its taken me ages to find anything to wear! though judging by the weather, wellies and a waterproof mac might be whats called for! lol) Made a bookatrix style card with parchment paper and the colour theme of the wedding ( lilacs) Didnt have any other strong card for the box than blue, bit disappointing really :S

Isnt he lovely?? My other half of me bought me this in a lovely little shop called Fairy Tales in Mumbles, South Wales. Took me there for my birthday and even though there was rain, it was lovely! And look at all the lovely cards i had from friends family and wonderfully crafty people!
