Birthday card and Tilly

Evening everyone, hope everyone is enjoying such a gorgeous Good Friday, although the wind is a little on the chilly side, it's so good to have the sun shining bright and dry. It makes you feel so good doesn't it.

Tonight I am posting a birthday card I made recently for a friend's birthday.  I love these colours.
I've also posted an updated photo of Tilly, as you can see she has changed quite a bit especially in her face. She has settled in really well and learns so quickly, she's loved so much by all the family.

Thank you so much to you all who have left comments on my recent postings, the problem when you do not post regularly is that people become disinterested but I really enjoy following all the lovely blogs from crafty friends. See you soon hugz Dee x

Tilly - New family mmber

Hi crafty mates,

Sorry I haven't been around much again recently but there doesn't seem enough hours in the day, I can't believe it's 1st March already, but at least we have quite a few spring bulbs rearing their little heads in the garden, which is lovely to see after all the wet dreary days we've had

Anyhow, I have attached a photo of the new member of our family, Tilly Scott, we've had her for 2 weeks,and she is 11 weeks old on Monday,
 She is a lovely honey and white Cockapoo.  She's so loving and is learning so quickly, I'll update you in the near future as she grows a little.

I've still got a few cards that I've made over the last few months, and the one below is a wedding card
I made for a friend of my son's.  the NEC show is coming up shortly and I will be going along with a friend. I've said I'm not going to buy a lot this time, but you know what it's like when you see all the lovely goodies...

Hope you like the photos, see you all soon. Hugz Dee xxx

80th Birthday Card

Morning everyone,

Today here in south Birmingham is a bright and sunny morning. The wind has blown away thank good along with the rain for now...I expect...  Atleast we haven't had the terrible storms that a lot of people on the coast have had.

Todays card is one I made last year for one of my friends, mom's 80th birthday in November.  It is a 7 x 7" square card using various dies. I still have a few to blog from last year, but now making a start on this year's, quite a few family birthdays coming along, and I have to think of a special one for hubby who is 60 in March!  Better get my thinking cap on very darn quick. See you soon Hugz Dee x

Granddaughters birthday card -2013

Good evening everyone.
Well 2014 has not started well for me so far, I have had the flu which turned to bronchitis so had to pay a visit to GP to get antibiotics. Haven't been out since new years eve, except to surgery!! Lets hope the year improves... 
I have decided to start posting some cards that I made throughout 2013 but for various reasons never got around to posting them.  I've started with my grandaughters 2nd birthday card and will try and post more regularly this year.  I have to get crafting soon, as I have lots of birthdays comng up. I couldn't believe the price that cards are now, as I had to buy some towards end of 2013 - not being able to make any for family and friends due to the sad loss of my father.

Look forward to seeing all the lovely designs from crafty bloggers during 2014...
