Just sharing…


Sadly I have made this card for Miss S (13) to give to one of her class mates.  I personally don’t know the family, but it is sad when you can empathise with what the family is going through and will continue to live with.

I have used Hero Arts Be Happy and a recent win from The Craft’s Meow Soaring High.

Thanks for stopping by.


PS – It’s still hot. So hot I didn’t have to bake my top mat from my Epic 6 – I just popped it in the sun for a bit and it was flat again. I usually put them in the oven after we take the food out!

Hope to share something more cheerful before the end of the week.


Laugh till it hurts x 2…



Miss S (13) has a another party tomorrow night and needs a card! I’ll let her decide which one she takes. I am rather partial to the stars.

I have used Annabelle Stamps Tomorrow’s Dream, Boy’s Party and The Craft’s Meow – Good Times along with some washi tape (#10 & # 13) from The Stamp Spot. The inks and markers are SU Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Tempting Turquoise and the cs used for layering is also tempting turquoise.

It has been so hot I haven’t had the curtains and blinds open much – just as I was ready to take the pics of these cards the sky turned black and the heavens opened up – Please forgive the really bad photography! Not that I don’t want the rain I just wish it had waited 5 more minutes.

I am linking these upto the challenge at Annabelle Stamps (if I’m not too late!)

Thanks for dropping by

My Second post for today!
