Circle punch

I was asked how I got the pretty circle that I used on my blue Challenge card.
It was very easy using my Fiskas Aurora Punch,You can punch a 6 or 4 inch circle and it leaves a pretty edge, I was lucky to get mine on EBay a bargain price of £1.99 plus £1.50 P&P.
In the shops they are about £10.99 , But I have seen them on ebay on a buy it now for £4.99 +P&P.
They have lots of different designs, I am planning on getting the elegant and Victorian ones next

This weeks Challenge

I have just compleated another sample card for the challenge below, this time all the papers came from pink petticoats
For a change This week I have set the girls on Crafters companion forum an inspirational challenge.
I have given them these two photos to work from this week, They are to make a card or item taking inspiration from what they see, they can just choose to do only one item using the photo they like most or to use both photos and make two items

Here is my sample card, I have used some of my Joanna sheen Cd's for the backing paper and topper, She has some lovely backing papers that look like satin sheets, I printed a pink one then took the other into my graphic programme and changed the colour to peach, I also printed out a nice floral paper to match in, This card is for my son and girlfriend they got engaged three weeks ago, This is the first chance I have had to make them a card

So Congratulations Kyle and Leah, looking forward to your Party in the new year.

A need to say goodbye

sitting here at 2 am unable to sleep, I feel the need to say goodbye to my dear brother Malcolm.
who passed away this morning, you fought so hard to stay with us, Rest in peace until I can see you again, I know you are in a better place and will be watching over me, I don't know what I am going to do with out my big brother, I will miss our chatsThis photo was taken last weekend at the hospital, Our great nieces had just come back from a week in Disney Paris, they came to see him dressed as Minnie mouse. My niece took this photo for him to keep by his bed, He kept telling me how cute they both looked, It made his day and cheered him up
Sleep soundly Mac

photo wallets

It is both my mums and mum-in-laws Birthday this weekend.
My daughter had some photos done the other week, she sent some home for her grans, I told her to keep them as they would make a nice birthday gift.
The papers came from pink petticoats, It was just a black and white patterned paper, but I printed onto coloured card stock.
The photos are held in by slits in the card, so easy to slip out and frame if they wish


two more card made using the cuddly buddly snowmen dowload This time I made the snow mountain out of torn paper, The edges wee glittered with my stickles.
The sentiment topper was printed out in word, then matted onto pale blue card

1st Blog Anniversary

Well here I am at my first Blog Anniversary, Who would of thought that on that first posting I would still be doing this a year later.
I must admit to enjoying bolgging very much, I was not sure on where the bog would go, and if I would be able to keep up with my postings.
I also enjoy reading other bloggers blogs.
So here is looking forward to the next year.
Thanks to everyone who takes time to look at and leave comment on my blog
