Hi everyone.

What a sad week. I am devistated to hear of LizG's death. I send my love to all of her family. This is the card I have made for Liz and her family.

I will be listing some more cards later. I have been busy making some charity cards.
I am driving down to Kent from Lancashire next wednesday to spend a couple of weeks with my sister. I am so looking forward to seeing her and her husband and all my other family that live in the area. Just sad that I have to leave my 2 dogs here but they will be in my daughter in laws very capable hands. My sister has 3 dogs so five dogs in a house will be a bit much I think.!!!

What a Lovely Sunny Day.

Hello everybody.
I have just watched the Ladies Single Final on T.V.
I wish I had been there.
I am going to upload 2 cards today. 1 For my Brother in Laws Ordination as a priest. I am so proud of him. He is doing now he is in retirement, what he has wanted to do for ages. My sister is wonderful in supporting him. The print was taken from Joanna Sheens Heavenly Moments cd.
I layered this onto a piece of paper run through a embossing folder and mounted onto a Craftworks plain white card.The message was typed out on my computer as was the message inside of the card.
This is the inside of the card. Just a simple message.
This is the back of the card.

This card was made by using Joanna Sheens American Frontier cd for papers and image.. It was made as a spare card to have in case I need a mans card in a hurry. I decided on an easel card as the men seem to like them. I put
some velvet wool and a rubber button on the front. The wool was supposed to go with the lassoo in the picture. Did it work? I am not sure.

Hello everybody

I have not been able to load any cards on my blog again this week. Iife has been very hectic and I have been looking after my Grandson more. He is adorable but being Autistic I have to have eyes everywhere so to speak. He is growing so fast. Anyway I hope to get some cards made this coming week. I have some charity cards to make and quite a lot of family birthdays as well. Hopefully l will soon have some more to load.
I have been looking at all your blogs and your cards and have come to the conclusion that there are some very clever people out there. Your cards are fantastic. 
Love and hugs to everybody Ruth xxx

Another lovely warm day.

Hello everybody. I have uploaded several cards to my Gallery this week. I made some bookmark cards for the first time and I felt pleased with them. I used the fabulous Linda Ravenscroft artwork from the card creations cd.rom. The images have a star sign on them. I carried through the design from the front on both cards to the back.
 I also made a flowered Easter card for my neighbour. The print was taken from a Joanna Sheen cd as was the papers. I wanted this card to be simple. I added a plain silver cross and 2 false brads in pail blue. Again the design was taken through to the middle and back of the card.
The second Easter one was for my precious Grandson who has severe Autism. He loves going in my car and so I thought a Messy Rabbit card was ideal with Messy in his car. This was taken from Joanna Sheens Messy Rabbit Papercraft cd. rom.

April Friendship Swap.

I really enjoy this swap. I have received some lovely cards over the months.
The image and background paper for this months card were taken from a Joanna Sheen cd rom. Beautiful Ladies. I mat and layered onto a square card. I chose black for one of the layers and also cut a strip of the same card to make a ribbon. I decoupaged some of the ladies from the paper and added them on as a extra embellishment. I carried the colour schene through to the inside and back of the card.

Easter Weekend.

I always enjoy the Easter holidays. I think its because you know that winter has truly gone. Apart fron a heavy thunderstorm on Friday we have had beautiful weather. I have made several cards.

Sunday, 17 April 2011

Today its been a beautiful day. I have sat with windows open and made 2 new cards.

The first card from the Messy Rabbit cd rom. I love these because they are so adaptable. I used all the items from the c.d and printed it onto Super silk paper and layered on card and paper. I made a easel card and rolled up some matching paper to put on to prevent the card slipping. I put coordinating papers all through the card. To finish I put 2 butterfies from a small Martha Stewart Punch.I hope you like it.

The other card I made was for my Friendship Swap which I will put details on here when it has been received.

Male Birthday Card for a Friend and a Golden Wedding Card for Two Special People.

I made this card today for a ex Next Door Neighbour. I hope you like it. I took everything from the Black and Gold Collection Forever Friends CD Rom. I find this so versitile and great for mens cards.

I made this card last week. It was for 2 Special People who I have known for 40 years.
Again it was from The Forever Friends C.D but this time in different colour ways and I put it all on a A4  Card and the finished item was stunning. Everything on this card was from the cd apart from the false Brad
I also used a Martha Stewart Border Punch.
