Our new house!

We're moving at the end of May into a new build house so we went to see it at the weekend to check on progress!

This is going to be our garden

Me and Ben at our front door

Don't we look daft in our hats! (Me and my Mum)

The main attraction - this is going to be my new craft room! It is the size of a single garage so I can't wait!

My Dad measuring up - well done Dad!!!

How exciting!!!

Happy birthday Lollypop!

It's my friend Laura's birthday this week and she's a very sassy girl so who better to go on her card than the lovely and very sassy Anya!

I'm loving this colour combo at the moment! I followed the sketch at Anyone for Anya this week

Great sketch at Sketch Saturday this week which is what I've based this card on

Don't you just love Anya!

I just think she's soooooooo pretty!!! My mum coloured her in but now she doesn't have use of her thumb I had to make the card for her so it was a joint effort!

I followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers and had loads of fun with all the layers. I'm also going to enter this card into the Anyone for Anya challenge this week which is Sweet as Sugar and is basically to use anything girly!

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by

Get well Mum x

My mum had a little op on Friday to fix her poorly thumb so I made her this little card to wish her well.

I followed the fab sketch over at Truly Scrumptious and can also enter this card in this week's CCEE challenge which is to make a get well soon card!

Happy Birthday Grandma!

It's Ben's Grandma's birthday on Monday so I rustled up this little card late on Thursday evening when I had a phone call from Ben all in a panic that he'd forgotten about it!

I followed the sketch over at A Spoon Full of Sugar
(which was fab by the way)

and used a lot of my new ally pally stash as well as some old favourites

Thanks for stopping by

Simon's 30th

Our friend Simon turned 30 on Easter weekend and here is the card I made for him...

I based it on last week's Sketch Saturday sketch (but I didn't get around to posting it in time!) and I had a go at paper piecing (hat and trousers) which is something I'm still trying to master!

Ben thought it was a bit girly for a boy so I ended up removing the top bow and replacing it with 3 pearls. I must admid, it did look better that way (but don't tell Ben I said so!!!)

Relax & enjoy!

My lovely friend Jenny has just announced that she's three months pregnant which is fantastic news so I've made her a little card to say congratulations!

I've based this card upon this week's Sketch Saturday sketch and used my new papers, stamps and copics (yes, I've got copics!!!) that I bought on Sunday at Ally Pally!
