Mojo Monday 282

Hi there,

I'm failing miserably at trying to post twice a week lol!! Ah well!

Here's a card I made for Mojo Monday 282.


I used a Stampin Up stamp set from sale-a-bration from last year and the card and papers are all stampin up too. I added a dinky sentiment and a few gems to finish.

Bye for now

Hi there,

Yesterday was my pops and my step brothers birthdays. We all had a lovely afternoon over at dads with my sisters and their kids all there. My sister made some fab cupcakes too :)
Here are the cards I made to celebrate their birthdays:

This is similar to a card I saw a while ago on a google search, but I didn't make a note of the blog it came from.

I love these little stickers that look like scrabble tiles :)
Two very quick and easy cards and pops n step bro loved em :))
Thanks for popping by.

Mojo Monday 279

Hi there,

I'm keeping to my promise to myself to blog at least twice a week! I have a few birthdays coming up this week so lots of crafting to be done :)
I was looking for inspiration today so decided to follow a sketch ... and Mojo Moday sketch 279 it is!
This card is for a work friend - I hope she likes it :)
I used Stampin Up baja breeze for the background and then a couple of sheets from Wild Rose Candy Stack. A little pink ribbon and some white dots around the edge to finish.
Thanks for popping by,

Perfect Postage

Hi all,

I'm here with my first proper posting in over a year!!

This is very simple card for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I've used the Stampin Up perfect postage punch to stamp some squares from Kate Knight's Totally Tropical summer papers which were free with a craft mag forever ago lol!! I decided to go with these papers as they are so bright and lovely, just perfect to brighten someones day for their birthday don't ya think? I've used a 6x6 Kraft card base and Tangerine Tango for layering. I finished off with a Heard from the Heart sentiment. I have created two of these cards as I liked it so much and another friend has a birthday on Friday.

Thanks for popping by, laters :)

I'm Back!!

I decided to take a massive break from blogging but even I didn't think it had been over a year!!

Anyhow, I'm back now and plan to blog at least twice a week. I'm not going to put pressure on myself to blog any more than that because I just have too much going on (as do most of us I'm sure!) so we'll see how it goes :)

I decided to go with a new look and a new URL to go with it. It took me ages to think of a name but my hubby has called me curvy (for obvious reasons lol) for a lot of years so I decided to go with that! Let me know what you think of the new look and name :)

Please pop back later in the week when I will blog a card  I will be making for a friends birthday.

Ruby Anniversary No.2

As promised (if a little late) here is another of the ruby anniversary cards I made for my friend Sue who's anniversary is on Sunday.

The idea of the two coloured heart is not mine - I found it on a google search ages ago and jotted in my book of things I might use one day! Glad I did because I think it's really effective.

Thanks for looking.

Ruby Anniversary

A work colleague will have been married 40 years on Sunday! I've had a few anniversary cards to make recently where the couples have married forever!!! Anyway, my friend Angela asked me to make a card for Sue (who's anniversary it is) and this is what I made. I made a similar card for my husband for one of our anniversaries a while back but I put bought flowers on it. These, I have made myself - soooo easy but very cute and I added a teeny self adhesive pearl so finish them off.

This card is suitable for lots of occasions simply by changing the colour scheme and the sentiment!

I made a card for Sue from myself and will post that tomorrow so be sure and pop back.

Thanks for looking.
