Prom night

 Hi all
Post two
Of my roller coaster week,
From the low on Monday,
To the high of Friday 
As I said before I guess its what
I've been making this week,
My son well and my daughter beautiful,
As I've said before my daughters left school 
This year and Friday was prom night,
So after bag hunting,
Jewellery shopping and the tricky one
A hair piece,we got to spray tans and nails,
And eventually to the big day,
And she looked amazing,so on to the sharing 
Of photos,I am a kitchen assistant 
At the school so I'm lucky enough to 
Know most of the young ladies and gentlem men 
And they all had a fantastic night,
And did them selfs proud

Morning all
Nothing paper related today sorry
But I guess you could say this is what I've been 
Making this week,
And what a roller coaster ride it's been, 
Monday after the tea party,
I was feeling under the weather,
Then Monday afternoon I got a phone call from 
My son to say he had a bad car 
Smash on the Aston express way 
And was wait for an ambulance, 
Lucky after a fair few hours in 
A&E and one cat scan later,
He was given the ok to come home,
Only suffering bad bruising,
Although we he had a ruff ride home
Having to stop for him to be unwell,
I think it may have been the shock,
He's doing ok,he's still full of aches and pains,
And having a really stressful 
Time with the insurance company,
My son is a petrol head (he hates that term)
Spending all his spread time and money on his car,
Hers a few pics of before Monday afternoon

Pretty box for 50 th

Evening all 
No card this evening,
But a box for the teacup,
Made on the big score from crafters companion,
I used craft card, 
And to be honest I winged it,
I knew I wanted a 6x6 box and it 
Took two sheets of card,
I've used my free bi bunny cd form issue 6 for the paper,
And tonic dies on top 
The double, double bow,with the bow maker 
And once again a home made dazzler 
And a few pearls to finish 
The photos don't really do the box justice 
I am really rather pleased with this

mad hatters tea party

Afternoon all 
Sorry I've been away for so long,
Boring stuff often gets in the way of the fun stuff
Still a bit up side down from the 
Freezer breaking and hubby,( the worlds
Second messy worker the first being my son)
Re configuring the kitchen,
To get in the new American fridge freezer,
Which I'm over the moon with,
Any way yesterday was my sisters 50th birthday 
And she had a mad hatters tea party,
It was a brilliant couple of hours 
So now I can share the folded book I made for her,
And a few pic of the tea party

Wellington bear with bunches of love

afternoon all
Today's card was in spired by a birthday card
I received for my birthday back on May,
I had to have a go,
I used spellbinders butterfly corner 
And cut it out x4 as one side 
Doesn't cut out of one side I left a tab
On,scored and folded a tab and 
Stuck them on to a 6x6 square and 
Added it to my card,
I printed out a topper with sentiment
Matted it on silver and stuck inside,
Printed a matching insert off docrafts 
Digital designer,
A card with a difference I think,
Would make fab invite to

Daughters last day at school

morning all 
Mixed emotions today,
It's my daughter,Alice's last day at school today,
So no more early morning for me,but when did my baby get so big,
My,I feel old,really old,
Firstly I must say sorry for the pants photos,
I was very rushed,but want to share and log,
My project,for future reference.
The gift I made for the teacher that went above and beyond
To help Alice,
It's not a card but a book fold project,
I though the word inspire was perfect,
That's what all great teachers do.

A morning tonic

Morning all
I wanted to post this last night but for reasons beyond 
My control I didn't get there,
It's looking like a beauitful morning here 
In the West Midlands,hope the sun is shining were you are.
Any way on to my post,
I can't believe my luck really,after a hospital visit yesterday,
(Got another today) 
I thought I would cheer my self up with the last of my birthday money,
and buy myself a set of Aqua markers,
There only £14.99 at the range,but when I got there 
They were reducing most of the tonic dies,
Well it would of been rude not to
So I ended up buying quite a few sets,
So today's card is tonic dies
Beautiful bramble,
For some reason I can't find a name on the flourish,
And on the inside I used 
Threaded scallop,
With the corners out of the bramble set,
Flowers from country baskets,
And stamp from issue 6 crafters chompanion freebie
And finally the butterfly is a docrafts magazine freebie.

Spec-tacular day

Hi all 
Late post today,
A little card I'd had on my mind for a while 
I used carft card and printed the sentiment
Then I cut out  the glasses from coloured card,
I stitched around the card with a sewing machine 
With out cotton,think I could of done with a bigger needle 
But it's not to bad,
Happy crafting

Hope it is were you are 
Enjoy your weekend

Just swinging

Hi all 
Today's card is lotv card,
Inspired by there face book summer challenge,
I decided to have a go,
As I grew up in the country side I spent many hours just swinging on 
the swing,I wasn't lucky enough for it to be from a tree,but
There were plenty to look at,summer you instantly think 
Flowers,but you forget when your traveling around our green 
And pleasant land,just how beautiful the trees are.
So it was with that in mind I choose the image and how I put it together.
I coloured with a mix up today,chameleon pens,I used my spectrum noir grey and 
Spectrum noir pencils and blending stump and solution 
The paper are lotv from my stash and some I was lucky enough to win
On little Lucy's blog candy give away,the charms were also from my win
For the leaves I used a Woodware punch and the ribbon from my 
Stash,I have no idea were it came from.
Sentiment from crafters companion,
And I used my circle cutter to create the frame,and I 
Tried to use the lay out on the inside of the card to.
Happy crafting 
Enjoy the sun shine 
Crafty hugs
