This card is made using the Go Green range from Born to Shop and Do Crafts.
It's a very simple card to make and a great one to have as a just in case card.

Ruby wedding

A few weeks ago I made a bundle of ruby wedding invites up for the Mum of one of my friends.
My friend then asked me to make up a card for them to give to her parents.

I thought I would use the same stamp that I had used to make the invites up.
This is what I came up with.......

They all seemed to like it.

Off to get some more work done.... no rest for the wicked as they say

A little gift

I made this at my last demo and thought it would make a nice little gift for anyone...... handy to have a few made up to use as gifts for Teachers or as a stocking filler.
It's a great thing for children to make too!

Here is one I make with some of the new Honey & Hugs range from Do Crafts....

The flower clock,

This is the flower clock that is in Edinburgh.
Isn't it amazing?
Girlguiding is 100 years old this year and what a party we have been having!!
If you happen to be in Edinburgh, go and have a look at the flower clock, you'll find it in the gardens.

The work that goes into this clock is amazing - well done to everyone who was involved in this!

Fun with skype.....

Just the other week I was mucking around on skype with Jo......... well this was the result of it!!,
I don't think either of us have laughed so much in a long time.
If you have never tried skype before, I can really recommend it.
I love the way that I can get to see my niece as she grows up and my sisters even though they live so far away.
I can even have a chat with my SIL who is in Auz.......

Another 'John Byars' card

I really do love all of the designs that have been created by John Byars. He is such a talented artist and all of the stamps and decoupage are just a joy to demo and design with.
I just can't get enough of them.
This one was one that I made for a friend - she turned the big 60 and I hope she loved the card.

Another box card today

but this time I have made it with the 'Born to shop' range....

This has to be one of my favourite sayings from the range...
I no longer skinny dip - I chunky dunk!!!
It makes me smile every time I read it.

Hopefully I will be able to show you some of the things I have been working on for Doolicraft very soon.... they are bringing out some wondeful goodies very soon!!!
