Wedding invites

Hi guys,

Well at last I have designed the invites and they are all in the post. We are getting married in August and you know what it is like plans never really go right but the invites have as I have done all the work and not told anyone really until to the postie dropped them thr’ the letter boxes.


I just love the Magnolia stamp. The nesties I used where Labels 4 for the stamped image. Small labels for  the wedding invitation which is embossed with detail gold powder. The hearts are from the classic scalloped and classic heart. I have used the hearts embossing plate from crafts-too.


I have used the PC to do inserts and used labels 17 with a little bit of pink chalk to distress the edges a bit.

Hope you like.

Mother’s Day cards

Hi guys,

I know I am a bit late with this post but when I have done anything in the right order?

The card below is for my Mum.


Card for my Mummy (My Best Friends Mum)


Mummy loves red and I wanted something a bit different for her with the crochet flower.

Card for the future mother in law


I have done all sorts of cards for Pam so I had to do something different and I had realised I have never done an Easel card for her…….I have now!

Easter Pressies

Hi guys,

I invited my Best friend and Mummy to our house for Easter Sunday and I just had to make something for them………..I did know this would get me into Trouble and it did. I do live up to my nickname of Trouble.

This is Mummy’s Pressie


My Best friend loves Yellow so here is hers.


I did make one other for my Friend Paperlace who at the moment is a snooker widow. This should  come to an end tonight when it is all over so I wanted to make her something to cheer her up and she loves purple just like me and here it is:


Hope you like.

Cross stitch project update

Hi guys,

I have not done an update on my cross stitch project in a long time…….how naughty of me. I did have a couple of weeks with a break from it but I am back on track and I am still enjoying it. It does help when I get in trouble every dinner time with people at work asking why I have not finished it yet!!!! Some people are so impatient!!!!!!!!

The last picture I posted is below:


So this is how far I am:


Please excuse the creases and you can see I have added quite a bit but still a long way from completing the project.


Closer look at one of the clowns.

How are your projects going?
