A special card...

My lovely friend Elaine asked me to make a card gor her Gran - she will be celebrating her 80th Birthday this weekend! The only request was to use some purple...and to make it quite modern - strictly no vintage! She is a Groovy Gran after all! These MM papers are actually far more purple than the photo looks - honest! The Cricut machine even got a dusting to cut some lovely numbers :) Hope she likes it!

Have some ideas for Easter treats for local kids and neighbours but need to see if OH is in a good enough mood to go shopping for chocolate!

Bye for now xx

A Sweet Day...

Lots of sweetness going on today :)

My lovely friend Eva popped over with some yummy choccies - thanks honey - they are super yummy :)

Annemiek and I have been busy crafting - we both made a card using an adorable Magnolia image and an Alota cupcake - mmm it looks good enough to eat! This is actually a Christmas stamp - must see if I can get me another sitting girl!

Had a delivery of sample stock from Bramwells with a wee extra goodie bag inside - some super yummy "Flowers & Frills" papers which I have used on this card. A big thank you to Susan for her kindness.

I have received so many lovely cards, gifts and messages since being unwell - it means so much to know that so many people care :) Soooo - all you lovely ladies- THANK YOU for making my day sweet!

And just look at Meike's card too......ahh she does me proud!!!

Bear Hugs....

Goodness me another post this weekend - anyone would think I had nothing to do hee hee!

Here is another of the new Gorjuss Girls stamps from Set 2 - she is just adorable - and looking a bit like my Annemiek with her wild blonde hair :) A simple card really - only one piece of patterned paper!

The Sun has returned today yaaay - so Ads and the girls have gone off for a day out. Wish I could join them but it's another quiet day at home with my foot up. No doubt the colouring pens will be out soon!

Drookit Saturday!

Oh my goodness - what happened to the lovely Spring weather!? After 3 glorious days starting off with frost but turning sunny we have had a day of heavy rain all day! Such a shame as Ads had hoped to take the girls to the beach - lets hope tomorrow is better!

A couple of crafty bits to share - a few projects made with the yummy new K&Co Rapsberry Ripple papers and Inkadnkado stamps.

Hope you are having a nice crafty weekend!

More Gorjuss-ness


Just a wee post to say woooo-hooo the wonderful Gorjuss Girls Set 2 are now available to pre-order from Funky Kits

They are even more adorable than the first set (if that is possible!)

This is a card I made with the fantabulous Little Miss Attitude!

Troubled times here for me still - have had to take leave of my job at Funky Kits - not my own decision but one I have to accept for my own good. Hoping to get myself fighting fit again so I can regain my Sugar Slave status later this Summer.

Have a Gorjuss weekend!
