My Son Jasons birthday card

This is an experiment as I had no template for the S and O so had to make my own, I know he will like it and the sense of humour is right up his street.
Well brill I am, you will have to go from bottom to top, sorry, will crack this blog stuff one day. Am afraid there is no stamping on this as usually i do stamp, but it is a bit of fun. The Santa's are off a piece of wrapping paper my SOTH Darlene wrapped my Chrissie box in, brill it is

Been busy again

This one was stamped on glossy and coloured with pro markers, not a brill result. Background was done with a cuttlebug folder and I used velum, thought that came out quite well
The pink card is stamped on the background but does not show so well on the scan, another one of the lady stamps. Last one on the brown is similar to the blue and green but used brown card, these are a bit different for me but have enjoyed making them and experimenting

New punch

Love these Marther Stewart punches, have just got this one and it is so easy to use, looks great doesn't it. This is another lady off my Dimension 4 plate. Really like these too, as well as punch the border I use a cuttlebug folder on it too, which is great on the big shot as it it is wide enough to go through, then I sanded it, first time I have done this was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. I am one of those people who hate doing something for the first time. Once I have done it them I am OK, but am often a coward at trying something new

Just had to have

I really needed these stamps ( he he ) Stamped and coloured the images yesterday and sat all day today looking at them wondering what I wanted to do with them and this is the only one I have finished. Talk about a mental block, sheesh. Gonna leave them now and go to bed and look at them tomorrow hopefully with fresh eyes.
The stamps are from Dimension 4, hope that is the right name useless I am

Friendship card

I enjoyed making this and for once everything went as planned, the little girl and boy are Magnolia stamps and the background paper is crafty individuals. Anyway hope you like it. The butterfly I cheated as stamped a load and colourd them then photo copied them, cannot tell a lie. Love this style card and once you have done one they are so easy and you can easerly adapt them to any size that suits you

New Sissex toys

Well must admit love these dies, the card one is one of the new long ones where you can put the window where ever you like on the front of the card and the word ones are great. There are three sayings on most of them.
Well you all must know my sense of humour by now, just hope some of you get a smile from it, below is the front and at the side is the inside

Birthday card

Well it has took me ages trying to think of what to do for James ( my daughters partner)I hate making men's cards, can never think of anything. Don't know if I am happy with it but will have to do. The stamps are Viva Les Vegas. I am not bad when it comes to Hubby as he knows my sense of humour but any other bloke and I have had it. Well just hope he likes it as he is like a big teddy bear

I finally got some photo's of the snow in our garden, think we are behind the rest of the country as ours is just coming down heavy the last couple of days. Here are three of the Grandkids having fun in the snow
Had to take one of the snow on the old plum tree too have been dying to take a photo like this. Love this weather as long as I don't have to go out in it. Bit miffed mind as they have cancelled the farmers market, so I can't get my fresh veg tomorrow. Poor things don't suppose they stood much chance of getting here anyway
