Over at Rainmacs Place here she has posted a blog candy for some beautiful seam binding ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.  Just got in by the skin of my teeth.

Birthday Cards Galore!

It was my birthday last weekend and I was 39 (cough!) yet again.  Here are the triple gorgeous cards I received from those most fab girls over on the MSE Forum.  Thank you.

 These three beauties are from Dawn (Addams) Margaret (Yummy - Marg!)  and Caroline (CT19720)

 This beautiful trio are from Jan (Scatty) and Antonia (OAP1945) and Claire (Mad-Frog)

 This bevy of beauties are from Jenny (dragonllew) Sarah (rainmac) and Karen (flourgirl)

 Look at the next gorgeous trio from Jo (jowri) Oona (choccy) and Ali (alib123)

And last but by no means least a fab teddy from Debbie (Padster)

I have been very very lucky to receive such lovely cards and I am so proud to 'rub shoulders' with these talented ladies who are design team members for some pretty fantastic craft sites too.

Birthday Card for Another Grandaughter

Our  lovely Lucy is seven at the weekend and this is the card I made for her.  She still loves Miss Kitty and all of the five girls love having their cards personalised.  Thank you Kelly for help with the images.

MSE Challenge - Water

On the MSE forum Marg set us the challenge of creating a card with the theme of water.  This House Mouse stamp from Joanna Sheen seems to tick the box with rain.  The image has been coloured with Promarkers and layered on gold mirri and then mounted on a Pink Petticoat paper.  The LOTV sentiment stamp is part of a set I bought from Tams (Droplets in a Rusty Bucket, a brilliant blog!). The sweet little daffodils I've had for ages and was one of the first set of flowers I purchased, the rest is history.
I can't wait to get out into the garden and be able to take my photos in natural light, it's fair blowing a gale here in Essex.
