Club Night....




Late in posting what we did at club as this has been a hectic and busy week for me....
At last Wednesdat club evening we made boxes....the first box was a Squeeze Box you can make these any size and are ideal for little Birthday or Christmas gift boxes.

The 2nd box we made was a Hexagon box again these can be made any size, the girls put one single large rose of their hexagaon boxes but as you all know there are so many different ways of embellishing anything and these are a few of my samples.  The taller hexagon box would take a half bottle of wine but of course you would use thicker card to give it strength.

Another busy week ahead and then of course the children break up for the summer holidays so I wont be getting much crafting done then as we will be spending time with all the grandchildren but I will try and visit your blogs inbetween...

Good Luck....

 We've just got back from having a lovely week  away in our caravan and what fabulous weather although at times it was too hot I'm not complaining!

Our youngest daughter is taking a management exam next week so I need to make her a card, she doesn't do fussy or girly cards and her nickname is 'Bird' so thought one of Tim Holtz 'Crazy Bird' images would be very apt.
Very simple card, coloured with watercolours, little bit of pink and a single flower, computer generated sentiment and it was done.... Jut added some eyelids to the image to make it look a bit like a female!

Its an other glorious day down here in Somerset but we have a gentle breeze blowing which is lovely...

Need to catch up on all your blogs now to see what you've been up to...

Have a good weekend whatever you are doing

Birthday Wishes....

 The stamps on this card I have had for many years I think I bought them in around  2009  they were designed by lady called Kay Carley they are from a set of her stamps that are so easy to stamp and colour.
I found some lace glittered card which has been in my bit box for ages which  just fitted on the bottom of the card nicely, butterfly is an old Martha Stewart one which I still use a lot....

Thanks for looking

Look what I've got..........




 Last November when I met up with my friend Val (Aquarius blog) she was wearing the most beautiful beaded poppy she had made and I asked her if she would make me one and much to my delight she said 'yes'  ...
When I last met up with Val for coffee she handed me this beautifully decorated box and inside was my poppy she had made.
  Isn't it beautiful? The beads are so tiny and must have taken her a very long time to put the poppy together, I can't to wear it but of course I dont have to keep it until next November I can wear it anytime....  Thank you so much Val I shall always treasure it...Val is such a talented lady...
Pop over to Val's blog she has just posted another piece of beading on her blog.

Thinking of you.......

I kept the front of a card I had sent to me a long time ago as I thought the image was just adorable and so pleased I did as I needed to make a quick 'Get Well' card for a friend and thought this liitle image fitted the bill.
The embossed background is one of Sue Wilsons Pin Point embossing folders and I've just added glossy accents to the droplets of water....

Train Spotting..


 I'm such a bad blogger at the moment but I have been busy 'behind the scenes'..lOl....
I've done lots of sewing and have just completed another quilt this time for our youngest grandson (photos later) also I've been busy preparing for our July club meeting so I haven't been idle!

I was asked to make a train card for an 80th and this image from the Kevin Walsh Out and About paper pad fitted the request and I've also used my new corner die which is from Crafters Companion Diesire range.. 

Its a beautiful day today so do you think our summer is on its way??

Thanks for looking
