Morning ladies....

I thought the sentiment on today's card very appropriate because of all your very kind comments and concerns for me.  I've practically lived at the hospital this week!  The staff have been super, as has my hubby (he always is)

A&E Monday, (I said no to the emergency ambulance as I thought and said to the medic on the 'phone,  that I'm sure there is someone more needy than me, plus hubby could get me to the hospital much earlier than waiting for an ambulance.  Tuesday I was back there but this time to see an occupational therapist, who was fantastic, (dealing mostly with my hands and 'well being'), I left the department feeling as if Christmas had arrived as, Nik/OT, ordered numerous pieces of equipment for me, that I certainly did not expect nor asked for!  I was going only for new splints/supports for my hands!  So when you see the odd video with me wearing some special black gloves, that only show my finger ends, you'll know why 

I had the heart procedure on Thursday, that was an eye opener, then 45 minutes to an hour later I was called for a heart scan.  Lying on your front, for 20 minutes, not having to move, having rheumatoid disease, and throw in osteoarthritis, plus lying on your boobs, is something I hope won't be repeated, but only time will tell.  If I don't get a 'phone call from them over the next few days I will have to return to the Medical Physics Department for the second procedure.... followed by another heart scan!

Now back to 'business'

The black base is an 8" square.  The pretty pink paper is from my stash.  I used a pair of 'fancy corner scissors' as you can see, and before adhering the paper to the card I added a thin piece of black satin ribbon down the centre, securing it behind the paper followed by gluing it to the base card

Two separate dies were used for the heart and adhered into place

Mounting foam was applied to the sentiment and adhered to the card

I did layers of black and pearlised pink card to the inside and typed a verse

I've taken a close up of the verse should you want to use it yourselves at any time

  • all from my stash with the exception of the two hearts, the black one is nameless, the red is by Memory Box
and now for the card winner....

Morning Bloggers....

I've retrieved an 'oldie' of mine for today's offering, when I get back to 'normal' I need to add a fresh layer of now/glitter jewels and a verse!

The darker blue card is actually a lot more subtle than it shows on here!

The 'Peace' stamp is another favourite Clarity Stamp of mine

I hope the winner of this week's Chloe stamp can use it too

You have until 6pm Saturday to leave a comment on today's post if you would like to be entered into the draw

The winner will be announced on Sunday's blog

Until tomorrow....

Morning bloggers....

I have 2 CAS cards today that are a very easy make!

The pink card is 10.5cm x 13.5cm and the blue card is 10cm x 15cm

The giraffe card is a side opening and I actually covered the base card with  the pink embossed paper!  There isn't any need to waste gorgeous designer paper that way, or any other type of paper/card.... the thinking head is not thinking very well this week

I used the giraffe die to die cut the silhouette onto the white top panel card, then added mounting foam to the back of the panel and adhered it to the base card

The sentiment was die cut and embossed 3 times, glued together then adhered to the card

I used 'pastel rose' PVA glue to create the 3 gems

The blue card is  top folding and, this time, I only added a small piece of the blue spotty paper onto the base card

I die cut the top panel much smaller for this card as a contrast to the pink card and used an elephant die on this panel

The sentiment 'pitter patter' was die cut and embossed the same way as the other card

I used 'decadent teal twinkles' for the gems on this one

  • elephant die ~ same set as above
  • pitter patter sentiment ~ same set as above
  • welcome little one ~ 'New Arrival' - Little Treasures CED9308
  • pastel rose PVA Glue ~ CE
  • decadent teal twinkles ~ CE
  • baby papers ~ my stash

Hello ladies....

I'm  afraid there isn't a post today as, yesterday, I was taken to A&E as an emergency with query heart attack/angina.  Thankfully it was neither but the doctors are not sure what is happening

I'm having 2 procedures on Thursday morning, so if you would bear with me please I'd be very grateful

I'm happy to say that Wednesday's freebie card  will go as planned, it's just today's post that I've not been able to put together

Thank you so much

The base card is an A5 black cardstock with a smaller panel of blue cardstock

I used 2 different stamps for the background then added wide organza ribbon.  Double sided mounting foam was added to the back and adhered to the base card

In my stash I had the Chinese image as well as the 'good luck' sentiment.  I matted the image onto silver card then added mounting foam on the back and attached it to the card

For the sentiment I only added a little mounting foam 

I used a domino to stamp the female image then added colour before I applied a wet glue to the back of the domino to securely glue it in place


  • all from my stash 
Until tomorrow....

Such a glorious day yesterday for the royal wedding.  I loved Megan's wedding dress

Today's card is one I made quite sometime ago, it's amazing what you can find sorting through boxes etc

The base card is kind of a dark sage green with a smaller white panel with a white gloss card on the top

The white area was masked and for the background I used the technique with wax paper and an iron.  I've shown this technique before 

The stamps are by Clarity, the LOVE was heat embossed with gold embossing powder and a gold paint pen used to draw a squiggle frame

Now for the winner of the gorgeous stamp set....
