Anyway, Anything Goes have a new challenge this fortnight - Lavender and Lace. Here is my entry, a simple little card, which I think I'll save for my MIL as she loves flowers.

My cousin Jilly had a lovely little girl a couple of weeks ago, called Betsy Willow. I didn't have chance to make a card before we went to see her, so I got a shop bought card in the meantime...... Now I've had a chance to make one, which makes me much happier :-) Hope you like. Back to the doors and then back to work. K x

My Stars and Stripes layout is of, Emma, on a pony ride at a fair last summer. The photo is not brilliant, it was taken on my phone, but it’s a lovely memory to share. Dan was leading her up and down, an experience for him as well as he’s not used to horses!
The papers are Bo-Bunny and I’ve raised the stars and the banners on pinflair glue to create a bit of depth around the photo. You can just make out feint stripes I think under the picture in a starburst pattern. My first layout in a long time with no flowers or butterflies on it! See, two posts in two days. A flood after the drought!
Right off to paint. Not the fun kind on paper, but on walls. Doing up the attic/spare bedroom/craft room/computer room and in a right old mess!

Busy, busy, busy - there are never enough hours in the day, but I have missed visting my blogging friends and so here I am again.
Just a quickie (best not overdo it!)
I am sharing a card I made this week for my father in law's birthday. I am not good at men's cards, but I saw this in a recent magazine and thought it would be good for a chap's card. My advice here - don't attempt it! LOL! Cutting and sticking those tiny little strips of paper for the beach huts drove me round the twist!! The comments I had back were worth it though!

Well, it's been 3 months since I last blogged. Work has been very busy as I've changed my job and I don't know what I'm doing, lol. Home is always busy and I found I wasn't doing much me crafting, so I decided to have a wee break from blogging.
So I thought I would share my first project of 2012, a card for my Dad, whose birthday is this month. He's an old rocker (he got an air guitar for Christmas. Yes you can buy them, that's not a joke, I know they are supposed to be invisible, lol) so I thought these old stickers I have had lying around for a while would suit him perfectly!
It's also my lovely Mother in Law's (Wendy) 70th Birthday this month as well and I have made a Tilda card for her. I can't remember what this Tilda is called, but she's doing a lovely 'hurrah' in the air, so she's lovely for birthdays. We are off down to 'Naarfek' (Norfork to normal northerners) this weekend for some lovely celebrations. That's me back off the diet, Wendy feeds us too well! Short one today, don't want to overdo it straight away! Have a lovely week K xx

I do believe I have one or two of these, LOL and I am betting that most of you do as well!
I have made this card for my daughter, Emma who is 5 on Friday - wuh?! where did that time go? I only had her last saturday! Well she has asked for enough toys on her list to fill the past five years of birthdays anyway, I groan everytime the toy adverts come on, she wants everything!
The theme for October is 'Using a favourite Quote'. Come along and join in!
The last was another free reign with an option to copy Lynne and use these lovely Bo Bunny papers. I completely copied Lynne, as I loved her layout with the trees and birds! Emma is running around my mum's garden with string for my mum's cat Millie to chase. She absolutely loves Millie and thankfully Millie is one of those lovely compliant and well natured (and quite stupid) cats who put up with an lot!!
Thanks for looking, see you again soon! K xx
