Hello from a very sunny Central Belt.  It has been a dull warm day but for the moment the sun is shining.  I do hope it's nice where you are.  It's been a week since I last blogged or crafted.  I've been so busy trying to de-clutter without much success.  I have managed to bring  my wall and floor cupboards down to my dining room from what used to be my craft room and is now #1 sons bedroom once again.  I'm still waiting on the floor cupboards to be secured and a bit cut out of the back for my pc and printer plugs.  So still loads of stash on my dining table BUT I did manage to craft on the 6" square that was left uncluttered.  I had to make party invites for our Pastor.  I gave him a choice of design and trust him to pick the one with the most die-cuts.  I was quite happy with the end result.  Hope you like them

I just can't believe how cold it is today or how windy.  I've had the heating on and off all day.  I'm adding a card I made on Monday for my nephews birthday.  but haven't done anything since as once again I'm changing my craft room/dining room around again.  At the minute you'd think the bin men had emptied their lorry in it.

White base card, used a cog mask in my GC and it came out great.  Papermania Portobello Rd. urban stamps and button, grey Memento ink, cool grey and Poppy  Promarkers
Also a couple of ATC for swaps over on DC.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a funny day it's been today dull and warm one minute and cold and wet the next.  I wonder when summer is going to happen or was that week in May it?  I have my 12 yr old granddaughter staying the night and I've said she can have the pc for a little while before she has to get ready for bed but not until I had finished  blogg hopping and adding a card I made last night. so without further ado here it is.
The stamp is from IdigoBlu, paper, card candi, ribbon and brad are all from my stash.  Thanks for popping by and for any comments you leave.

Here's a card I made yesterday after hours of work and 2 attempts going in the bin.  Not too happy with the end result but I was not redoing it for a 4th time.  Just as well it's for my old auntie who is getting a bit blind.  I just have to clear up the mess now.  I couldn't face it earlier.  Hope you have all had a lovely and crafty jubilee weekend.  Thanks once again for leaving so many lovely comments.

 Once again I've used free papers, flowers from my stash 2 home made pins and assorted dies. Sorry I can't remember who makes the stamp, it is part of a set.

Good afternoon All, hope you have all enjoyed this Jubilee Sunday.  I've been watching the Royal barge and other boats on the Thames while making another birthday card.  The same stamped image as last nights card as they are for my twin nieces.  They are in their late 30's but still like to be the same.  Once again the papers are a magazine freebie.

Marianne dies and spellbinders dies used and the Joanna Sheen silhouette stamp.
The atc is for the friendship swap over on DC atc forum.  Free jubilee papers once again and I stamped the sentiment on to a kind of holographic effect acetate, it doesn't show up well in the photo.  I got 4 sheets of this stuff at a craft show and haven't a clue what to do with it.
