CPS challenge 104

Hello, Its been a while. 
This is my card for the CPS challenge. I thought I'd make an Easter card apart from the fact that it's on it's way, it's my favorite holiday. There isn't the same pressure with this holiday as there is with Christmas plus the weather  starts to pick up, and there is a stretch in the evenings. We go out Easter Sunday and Monday with family & friends for our first picnic of the year. 
Anyway enough rambling.......

Thanks for looking.

Happy 1st Birthday Maddison

It's my nieces 1st Birthday tomorrow so I made this card for her. 
I got the idea for this card from my a card my buddy Claire made for her daughter.
Maddison hasn't got a lot of hair yet just a few wee curls so I put a few on her card and she has blue eyes, she is a real wee character and I love spending time with her.

Happy Birthday Maddison, Love from us all X

Thanks for looking.

Hello, Monday again, don't the weekends just fly in!
It's very frosty here this morning, don't you just love black ice (not)
My two daughters were in wrinkles at me trying to stay on my feet while walking them to school. Thankfully we got there eventually. I wouldn't be wearing my walking boots in the ice again thats for sure!
This card is for todays PTI challenge over at Nicoles blog. 
The card above is for my best friend, you know who you are ;)  I haven't been the most reliable of friends over the past few years because of what I've been going through. 
Thanks for putting up with me & always being there for me :)

Thanks for looking.

PTI dot to dot...............

Hello there,
This is the card I'm entering for todays challenge over at PTI
I'm really having fun with the daily challenges, it's giving me the motivation  to make something EVERYDAY!
As soon as my alarm goes off in the mornings, I reach for my iPhone and go to Nicole's blog to drool over the new releases and then to see if I can join in on the challenge. 
Everything I used on the card above apart from the wee brads is PTI stuff. I actually forgot I had the wee jar of flowers. 

Thanks for looking :)

A wee bag..................

PTI is celebrating its 2nd Anniversary and Nicole set a challenge today to make/decorate any kind of bag. I have a Cd to give to a friend as a gift so I thought I'd make a bag for it.
This is the 1st time I've made anything like this so I've kept it simple & I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks for looking. 

Crafting with Claire

I spent yesterday at Claire's house doing a bit of stamping. Drinking tea & hot chocolate. This is what I made. I had a ball playing with Claire's never ending PTI stamp collection, this one is my favorite and one I'm definitely going to purchase very soon. The owls are soooooooo cute. I love them. I'm not very confident at stamping, I'm kind of messy too lol. I end up with more ink on me than on the stamps (just ask Claire)
Anyhow, just wanted to say Thanks to Claire for a lovely morning & for letting me loose with here crafting stuff, I had great fun ta :)
