Thank you Card


I had to make a Thank you card for Nanny as she give me, Duncan and Jennifer money for Christmas which comes in very handy for our hobbies. Jennifer put hers towards a game for her DS. Duncan put his money towards a game for his new Xbox and of course I put my money towards new toys for card making.

This is what I made for her:


I used my new Labels Five nesties. I used my crayons which I have not used in ages. I also used my new embossing folder from Crafts-Too of hearts. I am sure you recognise Tilda.

I am going to enter this card into 3 challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketches – A Sketch

Cute Card Thursday – Thank you

CRAFT Challenge – Thank you.

Thanks for looking and do say hi.

My crocheted boxes

Hi Guys,

Like I said before that I seem to pick crafts I can do downstairs in the room as my craft room is quite cold in winter.  I decided that for Christmas presents I would make Duncan’s mum and Sister in Law some crochet boxes with a little something inside.

Here they are and I am so proud of them.


The pattern I used did not have the white edges or the flowers. The edge I did by myself and the flower I got out of a weekly mag I get.

I hope you like and do say hi.

015016017 018I had to make these in an afternoon……..I made the other half buy me some stash for this……so in the end it was worth it.

Thanks for looking and do say Hi.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Hi guys,

Long time no hear………I have been crafting but not making cards. I have made some crocheted boxes and I have a pair of wrist warmers to finish. My craft room is up in the attic and it can get quite cold up there even with the heating on…….so I seemed to do a bit of cross stitching, knitting now I know how to……and crochet as I can do this in the room.

I will upload the pictures tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of Christmas.

Love Jane XX
