Anniversary Card

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and you got all that you wanted. I had a hectic Christmas day with the grandchildren but it was lovely seeing them. Haven't been doing much crafting over the Christmas period but I do hope to get back to it as soon as possible.

Card I have to show you today was one that I made in Linda's workshop a few months ago. All the fancy frills are cut in individual strips and stuck on. Bit of a pain but gives a lovely effect. I added a butterfly and stamped the greeting and sent it to my nephew and niece for their anniversary. 

Thank you for reading

80th Birthday Card

My mother in law came over to visit a couple of weeks ago and we celebrated her 80th birthday whilst she was here. It was the first birthday we had celebrated with her in over 14 years as she lives in France.

We had a lovely day on her birthday with all her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Here is the card that I made for her. The papers came from a set that I bought in Lidl's. I used Stampin up number dies and stamps. Used petite petals punch to do the flowers.

Something different....

As well as doing card making I have also been trying to scrap the photos that I have taken over the years. I scrap digitally as I find this fun. I am doing year books of my grandsons and the things that I do like holidays, days out etc. I have nearly finished scrapping all my pics from 2017 but have also made a start on 2018. Over the next few days - if I remember :-) - I will be sharing some with you. Today here are a mixture of what I have done from this year.

Today I have 2 cards to show you. A good friend and her husband are both celebrating their 70th birthdays this year.

The first card was made at a workshop with Linda. We made the gold effect paper - can't remember how we did it (menopausal mush brain at the moment :-) ) but is is lovely. having made the card I had some left over so was able to make the 70.

Thois card I have already blogged about. One that i made at my crafty retreat in Aberdeen back in April. I have added a 70 using stampin up number dies.

Birthday Card

Today's card is one that I made at Clair & Sharni's workshop. The card is not my normal type of card as too fussy but I really liked how it turned out. 

The card is made from a Mintay Scrapbook collection. Elements have been cut up to produce this layered card. Lots of fussy cutting , texture and distress. 

I have added a greeting to my niece and sent it to her for her birthday.
