Our forum has moved

This is just to let you know that the forum that I have been a member of  for more years than I care to remember has now moved, we (me and Bri) are now hosting it on our website, and I've had lots of fun setting up the design of the forum along with Lynn, the founder of the former site, We are now enjoying all the lovely comments that are being made about the site, and of course enjoying the company of all the lovely ladies over there, the link is over on the right hand side, (crafters reunited), please feel free to come on over and say hi, we would love to meet you in our new home!!

I've updated!!

Hi again, As you can see I've been playing with my blog, Im sorry I havent been posting but as always I have been a busy bee, we are in the middle of setting up a new site for a craft forum that I am admin on, The link to the one I'm talking about is in my list of  "my favourite sites" ( "fab friendly forum") but I will give further details when the new one is up and running in the near future

In the meantime I would like to show you some Christmas cards I have made
 The bauble one is made from an idea I saw on Wendy's site, thankyou wendy for your inspiration

 The Christmas window is made from a decoupage sheet from La Pashe

All of these medallion ones were made with a set of peel offs that I bought when I first started crafting many moons ago, I dont usually like working with peeloffs but I think you will agree these have come out ok

Hello blog friends...I havent been doing much crafting this week as I have been busy with other things, I have been spring cleaning my craft room, but now its all tidy I dont want to mess it up by making cards in there lol.... also over the bank holiday weekend we were working in the garden as we are building a raised bed at the rear of the garden to grow vegetables and salad stuff in, cant wait till its finished and we can get onto the growing stage!!

So as I havent done any cards for challenges yet (notice I said YET) lol .....I thought I would put some cards that I had to hold back as they are for my FIL and I didnt want to spoil the suprise for him, see if you can guess how old he is

I did two cards for him as I wanted to do a "special" one and I did put a jokey verse in this one, its a verse that Brian came up with and it goes like this....

70 yrs have passed you by
Think back on  the good times you’ve had
But when you look in the morning mirror
Doesn’t it make you mad
To see those lines across your brow
All deep and crisp and jagged
Happy 70th birthday old man
My god you’re looking haggered ! ! !

So now you know why I needed a sentimental one as well lol
Here is the other card

Its a "framin" card from La Pashe and as he loves to potter in the potting shed it was ideal for him

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look
