ODBD stamps Majestic squares and rossette dies
  Good evening  Crafters,  I hope you are all well and have had a good week.   I've only made one card this week and just had to use my newest favourite stamp, the fishing boat from ODBD, and since I had bought the fishing net background stamp, also from ODBD it gave me a good excuse to use it again.   This time it is going to be a birthday card for my brother or uncle, I've not decided yet.   I do hope to get crafty over the weekend so might be back to add more

Stamp from ODBD sea stamps, lace and pearls from stash

 ago so not quite sure which ones they are.
Hiya folks from a wet amd miserable Central Belt.  I thought I'd get a head start for a change  and be ready for the DC bloghop.  I hope you have all had some time to spend getting crafty.   
I had to make sympathy cards this week as a young member of our church died on Sunday, she was just 22.  Very sad.  The funeral and thanks giving service is tomorrow.  Rachel has planned the funeral and service has chosen 16 songs to sing and I'm sure there will be lots of laughs amongst the sadness.  But with such a long service then off to the cremetorium and back to the church for a buffet tea I doubt I will get online tomorrow.  So I shall wish you all a happy weekend.   Thanks for popping by and commenting on my cards.

Another busy day

But at least I got some crafting done, though not untill I had spent a couple of hours in the sun reading my craft magazines.  Hope it was nice where you are.   So today I made 2 atc's and a fat page.  I was quite enjoying playing with just the same few stamps.  Thanks for hopping by.

A birthday card for my Brother in Law who was sent to the gym for 12 weeks on the NHS.  He's 63 over weight and has a dicky heart so the thought of him ending up looking like this made me smile.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blogg and leave comments.   I really appreciate you all. Hope you have a crafty weekend.

Evening One and All,  it's been a cold wet day here today.   Thankfully the rest of the week was dry and sunny as I was painting my fences, 5 hours yesterday, it nearly killed me.  So no crafting done at all until tonight.  I made an atc.  Painted the background with acrylic paints then covered with versamark and utee.   Borrowd a Marriane die from next door and added one of the cameos I was given.  Finished off with some sticky backed jewels.   Two more atc's to make for a swap and a fat page for this months swap so I will need to get busy oh then there are 2 or is it 3 birthday cards to make for family, aaargh!  I think I'd better start with  the cards.
