Pets Galore!

I treated myself to this set of pet die shapes which includes cats, dogs, a goldfish and rabbit!
They are made by First Edition and cut beautifully!

I just has to add a couple of carrots to the bunny rabbit card - think I will be using this for some of my Easter cards this year. I loved the sausage doggie too!

Thieves in the Night!

This week we had a new sofa delivered, so we arranged that, for a small charge, our local council would pick up and dispose of the old one. You can have up to 5 items disposed of for the same price, so yesterday we added a broken wooden step ladder and an ancient split hosepipe and left them in the front garden.

Well, the ladder was rotten and wet and not even fit for the bonfire whilst the hosepipe leaked like a sieve in several places - whoever took them, is welcome to them!

Jeepers Creepers- Where d'ya get those sneakers!

Well, from Woodware Stamps of course!

Although this stamp set has been out a year now, I never knew about it until I stumbled across it on Pinterest. There are some great cards made with it and lots of people have used  paper piecing to get a great effect, So I had a go too!

These are a couple of cards I have made for girl or boy teenagers - most of those I know, live in their Converse or Vans Shoes!

I Love Owls !

I could not resist buying these 2 cute felt owls from The Works and soon whipped up these 2 birthday cards - the owls were only £1 for the pair!

Be My Valentine

A valentine card for my husband - we've been married now for nearly 31 years, so don't need to make a big fuss about it!

I did an indoor car boot sale this morning, but when I got there found 3 other ladies selling hand made cards, so I put mine away and concentrated on the bric-a-brac and toys. I did OK, but my Dad on the stall next door came back with next to nothing, having sold most of his model cars, mens clothing, shoes and books!
