I've Been Abandoned!!!!

It's Jules' day off today and he's abandoned me to go and play golf - how rude!!!!  I don't mind really (well that's what I'm telling myself anyway lol). 

We've got some new neighbours two doors down so I've made them a card to say hello.  Here it is:

The stamp is from Impression Obsession and I've just stamped it in black Versafine and layered on a Lacey Circle nestie.  Some Papermania paper over a Martha Stewart punched border and some Cuttlebug corners.  Hope you like it.

Thanks for looking.

Dusting Off The Distress Inks!!

OK - So I've had them for a while, and I've looked at them, got them out of the draw even, but so far I've been a bit scared to use them.  So I thought - it's time to dust them off and get going with my Distress Inks.  I've kept it simples ;) and only used one colour and it may not be the most exciting project (I may need to add glitter!) but I'm quite pleased.

What do you think???

Calories?? What calories???

Everyone knows birthday cake calories don't count - don't they??!!  Well I hope our Brother-In-Law Stuart took that into account.  This is the birthday cake that Jules and I made for him - it was a chocolate and vanilla marble cake with cream cheese and Oreo frosting - how bad could that be??!!!

Update on The Tigs

Just thought I'd let you all know that the Tigs is a bit happier today.  Still fairly quiet and a bit wary, but much improved on last night.  I'm sure she'll be back to her old self very soon.

She's made herself comfortable under the desk in my work room and I haven't wanted to disturb her, so no crafting for me today.  Hubby Jules is playing golf on Sunday afternoon, so you never know I might get something done then lol!!!

Happy Friday everyone - hope you have lovely weekends.

Simply Handmade By......

Hi All,

Just a quick post to upload a card which my lovely neighbour Carol asked Simply Handmade By... to make for her.  She was recently made redundant and wanted a little something for her friend that she job-shared with and here is what I came up with.  I thought that incorporating the tealights made it more of a gift/keepsake.  Carol was really pleased with it and so I am told was her friend.

I am very edgy today as I has to take my Tigs to the vets this morning - she is having some dental work done under aneasthetic (the vets bamboozled us into it when we took her for her booster last week).  I should be able to pick her up at 3pm - bless her heart.

5pm and The Tigs has been home for about half an hour.  She's still quite dozy and has jelly legs but I think she's OK - not sure she's forgiven me just yet though!!

Happy Birthday To My Mum Lorraine

Hi All,

It's another hot one today but I couldn't let the heat get to me as it's my Mum's birthday and I've been busy making cards.  I had a real dilemma because I had a few different ideas (the first and second shamelessly borrowed from Simply Handmade By - hope you don't mind girls - thank you Emma and Donna) and couldn't decide which one to use for my Mum's card - so I made all of them!!!!!  Still, it's a special birthday (bet you can't guess which one lol!!!)  for her and the more the merrier.  I made her a cake too which I will upload piccies of later - it's on Jules' (Hubby's) phone.

Don't forget to check out our Simply Handmade By Facebook page for news and our latest creations.  We will be resuming our Craft Classes in September so please contact us if you would like to come along.

Happy Birthday and Much Love to My Mummy
