Ruby Wedding Card, Birthday Card & Fathers Day card for Hubby...

Hi Everyone, Well it's Wimbledon week and I hope the weather bucks up next week for them.  Nail biting times watching Murray's matches so far, I do so hope he plays better in his future matches...

We're off to my Uncle's 85th Birthday celebrations tomorrow so I thought I would do a quick posting today.  Three cards totally different.  My Brother In Law's birthday card seemed appropriate as they have just returned from their first cruise holiday, and his nickname is 'Hagar' so the viking theme seemed appropriate.  The 40th Anniversary card is an idea I have nicked from Eileen G she has made several around this theme using the x-cut dies, and I totally agree with her that they make lovely special birthday cards.  The third offering is a father's day card I made my husband as we had recently been visiting London.
Be back soon with  more offerings.  Have a great weekend.  Dee xxx

Fathers Day Card and 2 Quickie Cards

Hi everyone,

Just a quick posting tonight, as we have had a worrying couple of days.  Abigail has spent overnight in Bham Childrens Hospital along with her parents.  She was not feeding well and losing weight.  She's had loads of tests but thankfully they were all normal.  They did find that her blood sugar level was very low, which was making her lethargic and so did not have the energy to suck her milk, so they fed her overnight intraveneously and she seems a lot better now and is back home, thank goodness.
Anyway a quick posting a fathers day card which I made last week and a couple of quickie cards made for work colleagues.  I've been having a quick look at the C & C offer and I couldn't resist buying some.....
See you all soon Dee xxx

Baby Abigail Freya has Arrived....

Hi Everyone,

Wonderful news, our little grand daughter has finally arrived ast 7.58pm on Saturday 11th June weighing 7lb.15oz.  I've attached a couple of photos of Abigail, with her daddy and Grandpa holding her, and a close up, they are not brilliant because I didn't want to use the flash.  Not sure if she is going to be a red head like her great grampa and daddy, we'll wait and see. They are both fine, had a bit of a rough delivery, but doing okay now, they came out of hospital today.  Will post again soon, when time allows... Luv Dee xx

New Baby Card & Dad's Birthday Card

Hi Everyone,

just a quick posting today as I am waiting for the arrival of my first grandchild (grand daughter).  They have been at the hospital since early this morning so hopefully we should have some news today.  She was given 11 June as her delivery date, so looks as though they could be right..  It's my dad's birthday tomorrow he will be 87.  I've posted my new baby card and dad's birthday card.  He was in the RAF and still loves everything to do with aeroplanes, and was based in India from 1945-47 so thought this theme appropriate.  I downloaded the old map of India and aged it with my TH distressed inks. Also used spellbinders labels and textured card.  My baby card was made using a baby die cut, spellbinders grand circle die, EK success punch and ribbon.  Hope you like them.  Be back soon Dee xx

blue swirly flowers and a butterfly

Hi everyone,
Where have all you crafty bloggers gone the past 3-4 weeks, it seems very quiet on the blogging front....
Please please can some kind hearted crafter add to my following list, I seem to have been stuck on 44 for ages now.....
Just a quick posting as I have managed to finish work a little bit earlier today than usual.  Hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather this week!!

The card I'm posting I made a couple of weeks ago and haven't yet decided who it will be for.  It's mainly using paper from my stash, along with Marianne dies, ribbon, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and a MS punch.  Hope you like it.  See you all soon Dee xx
