Hi fellow crafting friends.. I am married and have been for 18 years, we have 2 children who are 17 and 14 and getting more complicated as they get older! I love my crafting.. though mainly cardmaking, it keeps me busy and off the (high)street, apart from our local craft shop where I am a frequent visitor. I have been crafting for about 6 year, it started with putting a few cut out easter eggs on some cards for people and just grew to what it is now, I have taken over the dinning room, garage and I have the cupboard under the stairs to.. one day I hope to convert the garage into a proper craft room. We live in Leicestershire but are orginally from Exeter in Devon. We moved here after a short stint in Bedfordshire but have been here for 8 years in October, its the longest we have ever been in one place for! My husband is an aircraft engineer but I dont really share his love of metal flying machines! Just cars and crafting!

Just sitting creating..

I was sitting here yesterday and came across this image of a rather lovely rose so downloaded it and cut it out and decoupaged it (which isnt my favourite crafting technique but found this quite relaxing for once).

Its wonderful what you can do with a bit of card siscors and tape and of course a few stamping techniques, etc!

Anyway, I am quite pleased the way this has turned out and hope that someone may think the same when I take my card box up to Blackpool next week when we are going to visit my hubby at work!

Another Anniversary card

This is for my Mother and Father in law for their 49th Wedding anniversary.
I used the same colours for this as I did for the 50th anniversary card, mainly as I had the bits of card left!!
The curling unfortunatly was caused by heat embossing the gold powder on.

Heres Julys offerings so far.
The Scrabble board card was for my Mother in law who is an avid fan of the game so thought that it would be a good idea for her card.
