A wee girl is 1 !!

It's a bit of a dreich day here in Scotland, the sun was glorious the past few days, what happened to it :o(

I'm went to see the last instalment of Harry Potter last night, in 3D, and it was fabby, although I have to admit you still can't beat the books!

I'm also off to a 1st birthday party today, so hoping the sun will be out as Kiera (birthday girl) got a bouncy castle for her birthday from her mummy and I think my Ross will be looking for a wee shot :o) (I'd quite like a shot, but apparently I'm a bit old - dunno what they mean!!!), and a 25th Wedding Anniversary tonight (card to follow) I won't have anything else on for about 3 months now!!

This is the card I made for Kiera (no flowers on it as I didn't want her trying to eat them or anything LOL):
See - plain and simple!
Was worried about colouring Teddy Bea, but dunno why - it was a joy to colour!
And my little Foiled sentiment.

Hope the weather clears up so we can have a nice 1st birthday party in the garden!

Sunny Monday!

Well- it is trying to be sunny, wish those clouds would just move outta the way and let the sun get on with it!

My wee bit o news - wellll I have been chosen to be on The Crazy Challenge's DT! How fab is that, my first DT!! The more observant of you may have notice my wee badge on my sidebar. Am so chuffed that I was chosen :o)

The theme this week is Summertime and the below card I have made fits the theme perfectly.

This nice summery card was made using Make it Crafty digi images (7 images in all). This is the first time I have combined digistamps and it was quite fun and easy to do:

It is a huge 8 x 8 Craftwork Cards card. Might not be the last 8 x 8 I do as I seem to need more and more room to decorate on my cards these days.

This is a wee close up of all the digi images. Aren't they all so cute!

Images: Make it Craft digistamps

The Craft Gallery

Hello. I've been a bad blogger recently, but I have my reasons...

... my wee cards are now for sale in a real live shop!! Yes - can you believe it - I almost can't. The boss in my former place of work lives next door to the shop and asked if my friend June and I had some handmade cards that he could show to the owner to see if she'd like to sell them, and she said YES!!

Only gave her the cards at the weekend, so don't know if any have sold yet, but she says she will pay us at the end of each month for those that sell, and we can then replenish the stock - how good is that - just hope some do sell LOL.

This is the wee shop:

Isn't it sweet it's in Carnwath, Scotland. It sells all sorts of handmade and handcrafted items. If you click here you can visit the shop, and if you're ever in the area why don't you pop in for a visit.

Thanks for looking - hope you're having a great day!
