Happy 21st

 Good Morning Peeps,

I hope you are all well and have managed to keep cool during the spell of hot weather.  I took the opportunity to have a couple of weeks off from blogging while Fab'n'Funky is on it's summer hols.  We had a couple of days away in Lincoln, we've never been there before it was really nice and we enjoyed our time there.  Last week our third granddaughter Abbie was 21 we went out for the day to the Trafford Centre with her, sister Emma and Mum Lorna while she picked a ring she wanted from us.  We had a lovely meal there and enjoyed the day.


Emma and Abbie

This is the card I made for Abbie’s birthday


I think the bp was from an old First Edition pad the image and sentiment is by Stampin Bella, coloured with Copics and paper pieced dress, flowers are cut with a Lisa Horton die, banner die by La La Land.  The  Happy was cut with a Sue Wilson die in silver and the 21st a silver peel off.  Finished with a doily and some enamel dots.

Have a good day!

Merry Christmas

Good Morning Peeps.

Hope you have all had a good weekend with some cooler weather, thank goodness, far too hot for me at the start of the week. much pleasanter now.

We have a new challenge starting today over on Christmas with the Cuties where for this month our challenge is:

For my card I have used a new Christmas stamp by Pink Ink, I coloured him with Copics die cut with Lisa Horton torn edge circles, paper is by Polkadoodles and I added some die cut branches, a bow and sentiment.

We would love to see you joining in with our challenge this month and there are some great creations by the Design Team on the challenge blog.

CELEBRATIONS
(Birthdays, Anniversaries, Weddings etc)


I have made this card for our granddaughter Jude, who will be 21 in a couple of weeks, unfortunately we won’t see her on her birthday as she went backpacking a couple of weeks ago for eight weeks, to Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Viet Nam, she won’t be home until the end of July so our celebrations will have to wait until then.

The image and sentiment are Pink Ink stamps the image is coloured with Copics, papers are by MFT and Whimsy and I used dies by Phill Martin and My Favourite Things.
