Have your cake and eat it!

Personally I'm not a huge fan of cake myself! However I do want to share a photo of the cake I was made for my 21st, it's me sat on my bed in my student nurse uniform! It was amazing and it tasted delicious!

I think you'll agree with me the cake is FANTASTIC!

All ingredients (for the card not the cake):
- Papers from Pink Petticoat
- Image from Forever Friends DoCraft CD
- Ribbon from stash
- Sentiment by DoCrafts

A bit of CASEing for the first time...

Hi everyone,

I am new to this CASEing thing but I thought I would give it a go...

I downloaded Pink Petticoats 'Old Fashioned Girl' Set last week and was requested to make an Anniversary Card for someone at work so decided to use my new papers.

I knew I wanted to use the main image as my sentiment and then the hearts papers when I stumbled upon the super talented Sarita of Little Princess Cards who had made this lovely card here.

My design is very similar but with a few different elements to it.

A Humphreys Christmas

Hi all,

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, wasn't it nice to have an extra hour in bed this morning? That mean's I was really lazy and that I actually woke up at 11!! Whoops. We won't tell anyone ;-)

I have made this Christmas card for 2 very special little people in our lives, they are new to the family so thought it would be nice to make a special card for them.

- I have used a freebie decoupage sheet and backing paper that came free with a magazine last week
- Blue paper snippets from Summertime Designs
- Snowball pompom ribbon candy win
- Sentiment computer generated
- Gems and stickles from stash

Double whammy

Hi Everyone! How are you? Sorry I have been a bit AWOL recently, we have been at the house nearly every day since we got the keys around 2 weeks ago. We have stripped every room of wallpaper, skirting boards, doorframes etc in the last 2 weeks and are having the plumber and electrician round in the next couple of weeks so hopefully the ball will start rolling. I will post some photos up of before and after if people interested in the near future?

Anyway, on to cards! The cards above may seem familiar, I made 2 of them a while ago and yesterday decided to make 2 sets of 5 so voila, we now have 10! I had left over snippets from the first 2 cards so used up the lot in making these!

These are the cards in their sets of 5 all packaged and ready to go!
I am holding another card stall after last weeks success so thought some sets of cards might go down a treat!

Here are the sets I have so far, the ones in the middle were also made a while ago.

All ingredients come from Pink Petticoat!

Craft stall

Hi everyone,

Woohoo the weekend is here! Unfortunately I am working tomorrow but nevermind! 

Thought I would share a photo of our craft stall we held in the hospital yesterday, you can see my cards on the left hand side of the table nicely wrapped in cellophane. It looked so neat that I didn't want anyone to buy anything!

Luckily we made around £100 between us to raise money for the ward I work on so I was really pleased.

Thanks for looking,

We might be needing wellies soon!

Hi everyone,
Hope you had a great weekend, nearly half way through the week!

I have made a batch of cards today for this card stall I am attending on Thursday, I have not made anywhere near as many as I'd have liked but nevermind, some is better than none!

Another boofles number

Hi all, 
How are you? Just thought I would post this quickly before I head off on my night shift tonight, 1 down, 2 to go!

Hi everyone! Hope you are well. I am very excited today as 

1. I made 5 cards yesterday so I will be posting every day for the next few days (yay!)
2. We should be completing and getting our keys for our first house today, very excited!!

This card is smaller than the usual 6x6 and for some reason I managed to whip out 4 of them yesterday, I guess they are easier to work with than the usual 6x6 card blanks, less space to work with!

More Bugaboo and Graduation!

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted for a while, I graduated last week from university;

I had a wonderful morning and it felt very surreal shaking the vice chancellors hand! Unfortunately I was quite unwell in the afternoon which was a real shame.

The card above was made today, I am not entirely happy with it but it was the best I could do as I'm still feeling a bit squiffy. I used up snippets from previous cards to try and reduce my pink pile a bit!
