2 year old

Hi Everyone, I have a card for you today that I made in September for my Great, Great Niece who was 2 years old, my Niece keeps me informed of what Dorothy does, which as she's living 4/5 hours away makes it wonderful to be involved in. I used a cat as she has one that she loves.

I had seen a technique by Jennifer Mcguire that showed how to use glitter and a laminate pouch. I had both in my stash, so had a go, the background to the cat is what happened. I was thrilled with it. I also added her name, using my Cameo and the WRMK foil pens on the bottom parcel, whilst also cutting the cat, the number and the shaped border out.

Hi Everyone my card today is late for the

I had so many ideas that I put off making my card until I decided which one - Wrong!
Anyhow last minute I thought of a crossword as I know a few men who spend their time with the daily newspaper doing their crossword. I made it up on an Excel word sheet and then transferred it to Photoshop, where I put it all together with background dp.  The pencils were then cut out on my Cameo and 3D'd onto the card. Here is the message in case you can't see it, On your birthday you need no clue, to know all good wishes are sent to you. Happy birthday.

Hi Everyone, a card I meant to enter the Limited Runs Progressive Challenge, but too late, I've made it with a couple of days to spare, I'm so pleased.  This was the perfect image for me lately LOL. I've made a start on Christmas cards so hope to post a sample of a few soon.

Hi Everyone, I felt I had to explain my lack of visits to you all. As you may know we are carers for my son, who has mental health issues. These last many months have been particularly wearing for us, maybe our age is getting to us? Anyhow, I want to thank you for your continuing support while I have taken a step back from a few things, but comments will have to wait I'm afraid, for the time being, while I pick myself up.

I have thankfully been able to keep up with my DT work, but I have not felt like crafting and even when I do, I sit here and nothing comes to me. Lots of procraftinating! Family cards have had to be made even though nothing else happens, I make myself do them, the dreaded Christmas cards are particularly difficult this year, lesson learned - start early in the year, which is what I promised myself at the start of the year, oh! well.

I wanted to show you these few things while I'm here.

After seeing our neighbours holly tree hedge, I had to take a closeup photo of them, I haven't seen so many berries in all the 25 years we have been here, does that mean a hard Winter? there were 3 magpies sitting in it (circled)

another part of it

I have been looking for a while for matching canisters to suit my kitchen, whilst in the supermarket a few weeks ago I saw these and thought them perfect, but they didn't have a labels on them. As they were only £2 each I decided to have them and then made my own labels on the Silhouette Cameo 2 with vinyl. I'm really pleased with them.

Avast me hearty!

Hi Everyone, as you can imagine from my title my DT post today is about Pirates and is for

I had 2 male cards to make and this theme was perfect, for both are West Country boys/men? I still think of them as boys, even though one is 21 and one is 20. They don't know each other, hence no problem making two cards the same. I came across a Pirate speak translation site, I entered what I wanted to say and out came the phrases, handy ay? and as pirate speak originates from the West Country, I thought it was right to use it.

Halloween Howl

Hi Everyone, my DT card today is for 

I have absolutely no mojo atm, and had difficulty putting something together, Pinterest, didn't work, until I came across this howling wolf and I thought straight away of him howling at the moon, so I look for a moon and this background paper came up, look for a sentiment and this one came up, so looking for inspiration was actually in my files, whew! I couldn't believe how many Halloween files I have!! including a recent blog hop!

I decided to have the wolf on half a card, so he looks like he is further away from the moon, it works in real life! I cut him on my Silhouette and added score marks to make the texture on his coat. I also added another bat.

wolf - Design Bundles, cut on Silhouette
bat - Digital Scrapbook Studio - Blog Hop Oct 19, cut on Silhouette
halloween paper - Just Because Studio, also blog hop
insert paper - Studio 4, also blog hop
skeleton - Tracey B Creations, also blog hop
sentiment - no info - sorry

this shows the half card and the wolf 

 this is the insert

as I was going through the files, I saw this a can label from YEARS ago. I had just finished a can of coffee and it had an orange top, so decided to clean it out and add the label, a gift can! whooppee! of -
