No Cardmaking for me today so I'm posting an old favourite.
This was a card I made for my neighbour for one of his friends birthdays.
It ended up being a real hit with customers in the book that I take around to craft Fairs etc and I have had many orders from it in slight variations. Dads Shed, Dads Allotment etc...

She wanted ladybirds and bees as we have been having a bee and ladybird theme at the moment.
Today we have been at the Chichester Music Festival , the choir category was today!
Our school won last year, but I'm afraid we were beaten this year by a better choir......
They sang better songs..but our girls and boys were brilliant!

The blue and red brads were a 'Thank you' gift from Sarah Bostock from 'Quick cards made easy' as I sent her a money saving tip for this months mag.
The background paper was a free download from Nikki, which has been so useful!
I was in school today making Mothers day cards with my little year 1/2 class.I took in card and my flower punches to show them. I will show you my prototypes and then all their cards later. They were brilliant and really enjoyed it.

Hubby is off this week and doing lots of jobs in the house.... He is Spring cleaning today.
Hoovering and re-arranging the living room as I type.
We live in a three story townhouse with our livingroom on the second floor and have two sets of double doors that open. The 'Summer' arrangement is the sofa corner unit away from the windows so they open fully and the 'Winter' arrangement is sofa in front of windows. We have deep red curtains and cushions in winter and pale gold in summer.
So today is changing seasons! This is all his idea by the way... yesterday he made chocolate chip muffins for the cake sale at school. He does the food shopping (as I spend too much) and the washing as well.
Does anyone else have a husband like this?

Caroline asked me to join the Raspberry Ribbons Sketch team a couple of weeks ago and I was delighted to be able to join in the fun.
Just after I sent her the card this week our computer went bananas and has been to the techno-Doctor for some repairs.
Happy to say he has sorted it out and I am back just in time....but it has been a nail biting time wondering what you have all been doing!
As you can see, bunny is still bouncing around my craft table..just love him with my Easter egg ribbon. Back soon to show you what else I have been up to....

This card is for two teachers at school who get married next month.
The sizzix doll is still one of my most ordered personalised cards especially for weddings.
I managed to do this and some Easter bunny cards yesterday, which I will show later.
Just taken 2 Mothers Day card orders this morning, and I'm half way through some 'Beautiful Cards' commissions.
The list of jobs is getting longer so I am off to do some work.

I'm still playing with the green promarkers and this little dragon stamp from Lily of the Valley is just perfect. I've coloured a few in to make a birthday card for a 2 year old boy. This one with the butterflies went well with this spotty paper so I made up one for my stock.
Thursday is my busiest day of the week. I was in school all day and then we have gym class and swimming lessons. We went to McDonalds for tea so everyone is quite tired and in bed now.
I have my market stall in the morning so it will be interesting to see what sells!
We are away this weekend staying with friends who live on the Oxford/Cotswold border. They are great hosts and always have lots of activities planned for us and the kids. I went to Art college with my friend Georgina so we have known each other since we were 17!
Not going to think about how long that is!
