Sent With Love....

 Hi Everyone,

Golly this blogging is getting to be a habit!!! 

Im here today with my second card for Mum to give to her Friend in Oz this time.  Needed to get them done so she could post them off as soon as she can. 
 I stamped this one out last winter and never coloured it in so decided to give it a go yesterday. It's a Mulberry Woods one called Giving. I used my Promarkers and Prisma Colours. I made the wee one a curly moose.  The snow is glittering with Glamour Dust but its quite difficult to see it.

Nativity Time....

 Hi Everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well. Im here today with a card for my Mum to give to her friend in America for Christmas.

Im not crafting nearly as much as I used to but Mum wanted a couple of cards for her friends overseas so today Ive made a start on them as I really cant do very much else except sit on me bum. (Im struggling to walk as I did a workout the other day and now my thighs are really rather sore!!! Note to self... High Intensity means that!!! 😢) 
 I found this image over on Cornish Heritage Stamps. Its so cute. Im gonna use it again on another Nativity card but in different colours.

Anniversary Card...

 Hi Folks,

WOAH!!!! Another card from me this week!!! Have to admit it's only as Jake wanted me to make one for his Lynne. They have been together 2 years tomorrow so hes taking her out for a wee meal and wanted a card too. Ahhh what a romantic lad I have!!! 
 It has taken me all week to make it though. I really have lost my crafty mojo. Ive no idea where it went. Maybe as the pounds fell off me the mojo vanished as well :( That wasnt the plant though!!   This digi is from years ago. Im thinking about 2012. She is called D'arcy but the web site for her no longer exists.

Texturise It...

 Hi Everyone,

I hope that you are all doing well.  Im here today with my creation for this weeks challenge on Passion for Promarkers.   This week the theme is Texture so Ive gone with embossed card and lace. 
Our sponsor this week is Dies to Die for. I got my Dienamics Stitched Circle dies from the. Tracy is always so helpful and the service is super fast!!! 

I have used an older digi image from the now Defunct Willow Designs. This one is of Winnie the owl. The papers were matching ones too. Ive had it printed out for years waiting to be coloured!!! 

Ive not completed the insert totally as yet as I was waiting on my Dad thinking up something to be popped in. They are sending this card to the lovely Waitress at their hotel in Ischia which is a wee island in Naples Bay. Sara went the extra mile for them the fortnight they stayed so this will be winging its way over there later in the week.

Granda Daves 90!!!

 Hi Everyone,

Golly no posts for a fortnight then a few!!! They are certainly like buses!!! 

This card is for a very special Man. Granda Dave the boys Granda. Hes a wonder as he is still very active and driving at the grand old age of 90!! 
I like to make Daves cards nautical as hes loved the sea and boats since he was a lad. In fact the other week he was telling Tom and I about a part of a wreck we went to see just off the shore here in Arbroath. He was there when it happened way back in 1938 and could recall going out on a boat with his Dad to see it!!!
