Easter Thank You’s.

A few Easter Thank You’s

I try to make a monthly card/gift as thank you’s throughout the month – this is this months :O)


Stamps: Curly Cute
Cardstock: Baja breeze
DSP: Nursery Suite Speciality 
Mediums-  soft suede
Embellishments:  certainly celery satin ribbon,
Tools – Big shot and Labels spellbinder die


I made loads of these and have given/sent out a load already, this is the remainder – I may have to make up some more ...

Any excuse to get into the craft room, although with the ‘summer’ weather we’ve been having I should be in the garden building up a tan ready for my holidays :O)

Old and New.

Well not quite so old ... hubby and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this week. I managed a few minutes, literally a few minutes in the craft room alone and created this card for him.


It turned out totally different to how I envisaged it because he kept coming in while I was trying to make it – he was supposed to be out working according to the calendar!!!  I was having to keep hiding it and the components with each of his visits every 5-10 minutes.  In the end it turned out a much simpler card than I wanted to make him.  Its the thought that counts ...


And the new:


Another nappy cake, I really love making these, I especially love how this one turned out, despite rolling 3 lots of nappies (that’s approx 192 nappies!) – Why has pampers changed the colour of most of their nappies to aqua?  I eventually found WHITE nappies – they’re becoming a rare commodity – I recommend Pampers Simply Dry to anyone else in the UK who has encountered the same problem. 


More cards to come later in the week
