What A Lovely Day!

Here are a few more cards I've made lately, the first being one I dont want to give away because its so shinnnyyyy lol! I got the decoupage from a craft fair at Bolton (I've still got three more but I'm reluctant to cut them up lol), and the paper from a set I bought at Hobbycraft, I'm not sure of the make, I'll look it up when I get a chance, but there are some gorgeous, bright colours there.

This one was for my Dad's birthday (obviously!) I told you that you'd be seeing more big letter / number cards. I'm not very good at mens cards, they always seem boring to me, but I really liked making this one.

And onto some non-craftyness, I cleaned out my little goldfishes tank this morning, it had horrible fungus stuff on the glass of the tank, so i emptied a fair bit of the water out then wiped the sides of the tank. Its a nice, clean home for fish now. Now I'm just catching up on Neighbours while updating this and my others sites.

New laptop!

I decided to splash out today and bought myself a new laptop. Its the Dell one they keep advertising on tv from Currys, and its cherry red. Its going to take me a little while to figure it all out, plus I need to put all my programs on it. So bear with me. I do like its prettiness though lol.

Fairies and Ladybugs!

Heres a lovely flower fairy card, the flower gems, paper, and flower fairy image are from Lets make cards magazine. The rest is from my crafty stash.

I made the card below for my mum when she had to go into hospital for an operation. She's now well on her way to recovery. I seem to be into making bright cards lately, plus I love the little ladybugs I got from a website.

As Promised...

As I promised several weeks ago I have finally got round to taking photos of the new cards I have made. I won't post them all at once but over the next few days they'll start appearing.

Now...which one to show first?

My mum bought her very first stamp from a site called one stop card crafts. I recommend checking it out, they're good prices plus you get a minimum of 10% discount off your order no matter how little you spend. Ramble over, anyway this is a Jollynation stamp and we both liked it because we have a caravan and go camping, although not as much as we used to. Its perfect for my grandma and grandad too as they love going away in their caravan.

This one I made a couple of months ago for a friend, Chloe, who turned 18. I really enjoyed making this card, its different from my usual style. You'll be seeing a fair few more of these no doubt.
