Birthday Card

It's my brother's birthday in a couple of weeks so when I was crafting at the weekend I made hime this card

I must apologise for the poor photo but it is wet and miserable today so I have been unable to get a decent picture. I'm scheduling this post so if I can I will get a better photo as the actual card really isn't as washed out looking as the photo makes it appear

Journal 52 week 19

Last week the prompt for my Journal 52 page was Outside In where we were encouraged to take some crafty bits and pieces outside in order to create our page. Unfortunately when the weather was nice last week I had no time to create my page and today it is raining and cold. I have however created my page today choosing just a few items to use as if I had taken them outside with me and they were all I had to use.

Here is my page

The tags are from a free download you can find here

Journal 52 week 18

Well yet again I am behind with my journal pages, I've not had a lot of time for crafting and I've had several cards to make and also two classes to prepare for so they have taken up most of my crafting time. Anyway today I have managed to get last weeks journal page done following the prompt of Observations.  To begin with I had no inspiration at all for this page but then I had a light bulb moment and remembered I had some photos that I had taken of our garden, sadly not our present garden but our previous one and decided to use those to make my page

May Postcard Pot Pourri

Its Postcard pot pour time again over at Chocolate Baroque and with the holiday season approaching Im trying to get ahead with my swaps. For May our theme/colour was Lily of the Valley/Shamrock Green. As i don't have any stamps with Lily of the Valley on them I have again had to go with the colour theme. I wasn't quite sure what shade of green Shamrock was so Im hoping this is about right

Journal 52 week 17

Well so far I'm managing to keep up with my journal this year even if I am only managing one page a week by joining in with the Journal 52 challenge. This weeks prom was "Treasure" there were so many possibilities for this one but as Im trying to keep this journal as a fairly personal one I decided to go with the things that I treasure
