Father’s day cards


Hi guys,

Sorry for the delay in posting this. Not spent much time on the internet or computer. These are the cards for the Fathers Day.

For the Father in Law:


Something a bit different. I have used my new Honeysuckle Vine from Memory box…….I love this one!


Opened right out showing the new die set I have from Spellbinders – Floral Doily Accent. Also used candy and buttons from the stash.


A nice little cross stitch in the middle. The cross stitch pattern is from one of the many mags I get. I have used allsorts on this card. Father in Law loved it as it as his favorite owls on it. The card and papers are from the crop box.


This is Duncan’s card from Jennifer and the cats.

My first attempt at a double fold card for tags.


Duncan loves Dragons so I have used the Wild Rose Studio Fergus with Teddy. Instead of using my promarkers I have used my water colours which I have not used in ages………… I think I need to play with these a little bit more.


The 2 little tags I have made.


Duncan loved his card as well!


I crocheted a little owl for the father in law as I did not know how long it would take me to knit the owl for him. I got this pattern for the Art of Crochet mag that I get.


I thought I would show you a picture of my little helper helping me a lot…….NOT. Smudge does look like he is comfortable doesn’t he?????

Well we have just completed our 4th week with a personal trainer and Duncan as lost a massive 12lb and I have lost 5lb. I was a bit gutted with my loss but it was pointed out to me that I have never trainer like this before and I have found muscles that I did not know I had more like use. I have lines appearing around the muscles like my biceps and calves. So we have signed up for another 4 weeks and we have been told it is going to get harder. I will keep you updated and here is to the pain that is coming our way……LOL!!!!!


Right I need to get off the computer and get to work on the cross stitch I am doing………Remember this??????


Well I am on to the back stitching…….yes I remember saying I wanted to finished this before I got married and yes I have been married 10 months now…….I know I am terrible!!!!!!!!!

See you soon and leave a comment so I can come to visit you.

Luv Jane XX
