Electric socket thanks

Hi Everyone, another card I found while going through my files, that I haven't posted, it was a thank you card for the electricians who worked on our new kitchen.
I had seen a USA version on Pinterest,
 but adapted the design to the UK version of electric sockets in Silhouette.
I think the background paper is off the web
sentiment designed in Photoshop CS6

this is the insert

If anyone would like the Silhouette cut file of the socket and plug,
 I am more than happy to send it to you.

Hi Everyone, I've been experimenting after watching a few tutorials by Toni Darroch and came up with this card casing a couple she has done.

floral stamp & sentiment stamp - Stamps by Me
embossed with white embossing powder
leaf die - Tattered Lace
cut and layered onto card
label die - Card Making Magic
watercolour pencils - Nuvo Brilliantly Vibrant
image fussy cut and 3D'd
gems - stash

something else I have been busy with identifying our rubbish/garbage bins that are supplied by the Council, the blurred bit is our road name. Have to say the neighbours have been asking where we had them done! I'm chuffed with them.

Balloon birthday

Hi Everyone, well! we have Summer at last, although only for a few days, but gorgeous weather the last couple of days.

Anyhow you are here to see my card? I made it a couple of months ago and forgot I hadn't posted it, so here it is, I have to thank Jennifer Mcguire for the inspiration for this quick card.

I designed the balloon in Silhouette and cut both the balloon and and sentiment out to place onto the card, I added some bakers twine and it was done. Just as well as I had completely forgotten a GNephews birthday, so a quick card was needed and handed to him later that day without him knowing I had forgotten whew!

I managed to catch the incredible view of the eclipsed moon last night, it was awesome, I had to go for a walk before seeing it, as we have a lot of trees around us and the moon was low in the sky. Such a shame that I didn't take my camera just my phone to take the photos, I thought it would be better, I should have known better. These are a couple of what I took, just a shame they are so blurred. However I saw it in all it's glory and wonderful red colour.

Hi Everyone, a card made in the mood that I felt! I made it for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge, I haven't visited there in a while and it helps me so much with designing a card.

Anyhow as things have been difficult recently, I was looking through my files for something bright to make for the challenge and to cheer me up, I actually saw the border image first which looked like the ribbon we were shown was on the sketch, it went from there, the sentiment outside and inside reflected what I felt then. I'll keep the card to send to someone going to through rough times too LOL. The card is made up of  digi images and papers printed and cut on the Silhouette Cameo.
Digital kit - "Squeeze" Amanda Creations
front elements 3D'd
insert sentiment - the web
gem - stash

Christmas card in July #2

Hi Everyone, keeping up with the Christmas in July theme, it's doing me good, at least I have started making the dreaded Christmas cards. I decided to do a wobble card. I don't use these colouring book images enough, they are fun and easy LOL.

I also thought I would show you a bird doing what to me is a strange thing?

On to my card.
image - Elizabeth Dulemba colouring pages
coloured in PS CS6, for some reason the yellow is orange and the orange is red in the photo, maybe because it was very heavy cloud when taken?
sentiment - Create with TLC
tree background - Marisa Lerin Pixelscrapper
wobbly eyes - stash
Action Wobble for movement #julyawc
wire glued to star and back of tree to hold star.

Now for the bird a pigeon!
The photos were taken from inside the conservatory, he settled down on top of the box hedge making himself very comfortable and stayed for about half an hour, I've never seen this happen before, they usually stay for a feed and jump at the slightest noise, but nothing seemed to startle him. Then he just flew away. I thought he may be injured at first, but there was no problem with his flying. Maybe it was a female practising nesting?

Christmas in July

Hi Everyone, my DT post today is LATE! my apologies to my Teammates, but I had an emergency with my son, he lives with us, so it had to be dealt with immediately. He is OK and safe now and that is why I haven't been visiting, so with huge apologies to everyone, I hope that normality can resume now!

Enough of all that, here's my DT card for

For some reasons Blogger isn't letting me add a photo to my post, anyone else having problems? I can't even add placement ie. left centre right, without a lot of carfuffle, I'll try and add it again tomorrow, but I have to get this to the Male Room, EDIT, tried today and it worked - contrary thing LOL

I used magazine freebies of the stocking, the stamps and
 the cable embossing folder
paper - Wonderland by Helz Cuppleditch
You can see my card on -

Hi Everyone, I hope you're all OK.

I saw a challenge I hadn't entered for ages, hence today's card. I have seen so many dandelions and daisies looking like jewels on the side of the road, I decided to make something with my digi stamp and here it is. I think it will brighten my Goddaughters day, at least I hope so.
