Second card is a get well card 'Thinking of You' for one of our Managers at work who has been off for a few weeks. I used papermania inspirations paper for this one and an image I got ages ago and don't actually remember where....lol.. added his name with bubble stickers and put plain ones down the side to balance it up.The dark blue strip of squares is rather nice flock wrapping paper which is now rapidly disapearing, sad to say..., it's great for guys cards, I know I bought it in John Lewis ages ago, probably won't get it back in now.
The third card is for a guy who plays rugby. I used a decoupage image and Dovecraft black and white paper. The 18 is numbers that my Hubby gets from his work they are self adhesive aluminium and great for special birthdays like this.
Well that's me for tonight going to look for my holiday on the net now for next year. It's our 30th Aniversary in March so we are looking for something special......Sorry for the long post but had a lot to say....lol.....not like me....lol

I've had a lovely day, to start with my Hubby made me a new shelf unit , AND put 2 extra shelves in the crafty cupboard . I'm keeping him busy while we are both off work this week...Then my friend Elaine came for lunch and we had a great afternoon going through my stash and messing about on the computer, a few sandwiches cakes and bickies were also consumed while we played with my Copic pens. Elaine loved these and my shelf unit so poor Ronald ( Elaine's hubby) is going to get his ear bitten for all that extra wood out in the garage to be turned into something usefull...lol and don't forget the Copics Ron......
Picture of the shelf unit, I just put on a few of my fav stamps that I use the rest are still occupying the draws...( soon to be moved I might add to make way for other goodies) ......
And then I discovered I've been given an award from Natalie over on http://www.ngcards.blogspot.com/. I was really chuffed and very surprised thanks Natalie. Why not take a look at her creations they are really gorgeous.......
I'm passing this award on to five other people who's creations and blogs have in some way inspired me, thank you all and I apologise if you already have this..... but hey! it's nice to get it again from someone else.

Hi there, its Monday and I'm off work this week.!!! So as you can see I've made a card thismorning, it's a bit unusual for me and out of my comfort zone as far as colour goes. Normaly I go for pastels but I decided after the green card the other day that I should do something different. I used my HOTP papers that I've had for ages....and a bit of braid that I found the other day I wrapped a piece of brown organza ribbon round it. Flower and charm are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by.

Here is the sketch and this is my interpetation of it. I used Cuddly Buddly image and free papers from a mag last year. Dovecraft ribbon, and the snowflake embelishments from the works. Also last years. I think I've got enough stash for next years cards as well.... That doesn't mean I can't buy more of course!!! Thanks for looking
