Card Idea for Mum

Good Morning, I have a day off today so getting a few jobs done and them I am going to put my feet up, make a card and watch Meet Me in St Louis ( a film I have never seen). I have made this card for the Mum of a very good friend of mine.
I made it using the alphabet from one of the My Craft Studio CD's and the numbers from one of the clip art fairy CD's. I thought for a change I would use a piece of acetate on the front of the card and then I added lots of bling with glitter and gems. I am really pleased with it and I am going to have a go with a few others but perhaps on a smaller scale. My friend was absolutely delighted with it to.

3D Flowers

Good morning, it's a bit cold and frosty outside today so I have made some 3D flowers to brighten the day up. I got the idea from Sue Wilson on Create and Craft months ago for making these but have only just got round to having a go. You just stamp your flower image onto scraps of paper, cut them out, give them a little spray with some water and then scrunch them up and leave them to dry off a little. Then punch a small hole in the centre of each one, add a brad and layer them up, if you do this while they are still a bit damp you can arrange the petals how you want them to lie, I used about 6 layers to make each of these flowers. It's a great way to use any scraps of paper you have, plus a different way of using your stamps. You can view Sue's blog at
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog

Happy New Year - One and all

Happy New Everyone - and apologies for my lack of entries recently. Unfortunately I haven't been a well Kitty, even before the bad weather kicked in I some how managed to get pneumonia ! So that totally knocked me off my paws and then just as I thought I was on the way to being back to my old self I got flu. Honestly it's been a mad few months my granny has been able to move quicker than me and she's in her 90's. I wouldn't mind but I live a far healthier lifestyle now than I did ten years ago and I hardly take my woolly hat off from October to March !!!!!

Here is how I would have spent a typical Saturday night in 2001

Jacket Spud and cheese for tea

Shower, hair washed, dried, straightened, make up applied, get dressed for night out (these procedures would take at least a couple of hours)

Hit the local pub for early doors (8pm at the latest), drink copious amounts of alcohol and final stagger home to my bed at about 2am.

Here is how Saturday nights for 2011 are planned

Jacket spud and cheese for tea

Nice relaxing bath, with a face mask and as a special treat top bath up with a drop more hot water. PJ's on by 8pm at the latest, a few diet cokes and into bed by 9pm to watch Wallender.

Lights out by 10.30pm, if I see 2am it's because I have had to get up to TC.

Now don't get me wrong I wouldn't swap the life I have now to go back to the one I had in 2001 but then I never even caught a chill - and I never wore a coat, even when it snowed !!!!!!!

Anyway enough of my ranting TC and I are in our PJ's and it's only 7pm how organised are we.

So after all that I haven't done that much crafting really over the past few months but I intend to back into it now we are in 2011. I did make some boxes of cupcake socks for my God-daughters little girl who was born just before Christmas.

Let me know what you think.

See you soon
