This is my first go at making this shape card, was quite pleased with it, think I will need to have a bit more of a play cause I think there is sooo much more I can do with it with a little more effort.

I've had my first go at using a digital stamp, I love this image it's such a cute birthday card I also thought I would have a go at trying to use up some of my scrap bits of paper and all of this has some from a big bag of paper that I have, sorry the image is a dark but the weather here is not to great again today I guess the trip to the farm may have to wait for another day, lets just hope it gets a bit better for tomorrow I'm meant to be taking the kids to London!!   http://heather-ellis.co.uk/ This is where I got the image from.

Here are the invites that I have made for my friends Mum, all she told me was she wanted black white and purple as the theme. I got all the the paper from The Glitter Pot the butter fly was an Cuttlebug die that I had got to make the invites for my brothers wedding earlier in the year. I hope she likes them.

At last here is the Christmas card that I said I would make last week. I have been quite busy I forgot that a friend had asked me to make her some invites for her mum's 60th birthday, I have just about finished them now so I may be able to show you them tomorrow. I'm not sure if I like this card very much, I don't think the colour of the flowers go with the rest of the card.

My oldest daughter has been doing some jobs over the last couple of days to earn some money because she wants to go shopping with her cousin today, she's never been that bothered with shopping before so it's so sweet to see her getting so excited. I thought I would have a go at making a card without using any stamps and I just about did it other than the text stamp, I'm quite pleased with this card I like the colours. If I get chance today I might have a go at making a Christmas card, been blog hopping and everyone seems to have started and it's got me all christmasey. I got as far as cutting out a new stamp that I ordered ages ago from The Pink Cat Studio so it may have to be inked today.

Another day and I've got 2 cards today, I know the image is the same, but I wanted to have a go at doing it in a color i would not normally use Yellow, I'm quite pleased with them both. The stamp is from Pink Gem Designs again, the flowers on the yellow card are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the papers etc... are from my stash. I think today we might head to the library and then see if I can get the kids crafting!!!

I know two post in two days, I'm doing well. My friend took the kids to see Toy Story yesterday so I managed to get some cards made. In this one I used a stamp from Pink Gem Designs again, both the monster and writing was from there and I think the rest of it came from The Glitter Pot. Hoping to have another play today as the weather is so rubbish.

I've been having a little play with some cards for boys here is one of them the stamp is from Pink Gem Designs and I found the backing paper and my local craft shop. I'm quite pleased with this card, but I do think I can do better. I've not got much planned this week so I'm hoping to get a few cards made, watch this space!!!

I made this scrapbook page quite a while ago, but I'm just been reminded about it because I've just booked tickets to go and see Tim Minchin again, I love him,he is very funny, not to every ones taste but we're all different. Sorry the pics a bit blurred I'm not that great at taking pics. I' have managed to make a card this week if I remember I will take a pic and put it up later.
