No voice!!

Its pretty quiet in our home at the moment - everyones loving it !!! I've lost my voice !
I seem to have inspiration block at the moment - havent done anything.  My big 50 is looming (14th June) - wondering if i totally refuse point blank to grow up and age, and not only will i stop getting old, but may even go in reverse ! This ageing thing is a mean old thing, I mean, i still think like i did when i was '20', so how dare my body disagree with me. I think me and my body are going to have a huge falling out if it doesnt start to behave - due 4-5 operations this year - I feel like a washing machine, under extended guarantee, so can just about still be repaired.
Our 20th wedding anniversary is on 9th June - i think my hubby needs a medal to have put up with me that long - i think its cos he knows i think hes gorgeous!
So on the 16th June, i think a party at mine is in order - family and friends to help me commiserate that dreaded number (50) - instead of hiding from it, i am going to look it straight in the eye and laugh

love to all xxx

A sunny day

I am thinking of attempting some of the card challenges, but not sure if i have enough confidence to do it yet, dont even know how to join the challenge, so that will be a challenge in itself !

What a lovely day today, sun is shining, so i have talked my hubby in to doing a bit of gardening for me! I am trying to sort this blog thing out, havent a clue what to do on here, dont even know how to add other peoples buttons on here - i am sure i will learn.
My biggest passion making my cards is using Lili of the Valley stamps and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

I have been very lucky with my little craft room, my hubby re arranged our study and converted an area of it and put shelves and ribbon holders etc to make it all organised for me.  My friend is making wooden reels to put some of my other ribbons on.
Last week i bought a sewing machine - now this should be fun, as i am petrified of sewing machines !!!


1st Birthday

I made this card for my Grand Daughter Maisie. Lots of love went in to this card - and all my favourite things are on here.

Another mums day

I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts on this card - I adore the flowers from there, they have become quite an addiction !!!

Mothers day

This card was made for my Step mum - this style is something totally different for me, but loved doing it.
