Firstly thank you for all your lovely comments on my wedding card. I do appreciate them all.

Well I don't know what weather you all woke up to this morning?  We woke up to the white stuff, which is still coming down thick and fast.   Yes it looks lovely, but not when you have it.  It's no more than a few inches at the moment, but if it keeps come down it will be a good thick layer.  So its a stay in doors day for us.

My card to day is me getting cards that are needed, done and ready for posting.  It's a very simple one as the person receiving it doesn't do fussy!!!

It's an 8x8 prefolded card.
Teal card is crafters  companion.
Memory Box 50
Sue Wilson  -   Diagonals - love hearts die.
XCut best wishes.

As I said a simple card.

Have a few other cards to get done for next month,   Plus I have orders for baby baskets, just awaiting to see what is needed.  One is for twins, and the nice thing the couple want a surprise no opening and having a look before the big day.  The other is for a girl, but I don't like making them up to early if it can be helped.

Take care when out as the weather all over isn't great.

Good afternoon.  I am sorry I have been AWOL!!!  This weather is just getting me down, the lack of sunshine isn't doing me any good.   I think if we didn't have Harris we would be away somewhere warm. 

Thank you for all your kind comments on my last card, I have made a few more with those dies! But until they are received I can't show them.  This one is an order and I don't think the couple will see it on here. 
It's a 8x8 prefolded card, layered with card embossed using spellbinders dotty folder.  LOTV topper mounted on card that I cut the edge with on of Sue Wilson's edge dies. The packet from this one has gone walk abouts.  Then I Stamped the congratulations on a piece of card then just cut it out and foam mounted it.   I have kept it simple.

I just now hope it will be liked by the lady that has ordered it.

Thank you for calling in.

Good mornng , and thank you for all your lovely comments on my card, they are all appreciated.
The weather here isn't much better, today it's very cold and I have a feeling snow isn't that far away.

Today I have another gift basket.  This basket was order by my sister Patricia.   It's for her neighbour and friends new grandson , he was born 8 weeks early, he was just over 3lbs in weight.  So little prem  cardigans were required, thankfully my friend was able to come up with 3 little cardigans.
This is what I made.

I added a towel, burp cloth and a bib as well, things that even little ones need and these didn't matter how big or small they were. 

Off this morning to meet up with Patricia with this basket, it's been sat for nearly a week waiting for the weather to get better so I could deliver it.  Patricia hasn't been able to get out as her roads have been flooded no matter which way she went out of  her village. 

Right off to get myself ready.

Good evening,   Not so good really as the weather here is  atrocious  We still have heavy rain.
Thank you for all your kind comments on my cards, they are much appreciated.

Tammy asked me to make a card for her good friend, she asked if I could use the two new dies I used on the cards I show the other day.   So this is what I did

The pre fold 8x8 card are ones I bought from my local craft shop ( McOyster Paper Crafts) they are pre embossed with a tartan design.  Loved these when I saw them before Christmas but get I couldn't justife the cost.   When I got gift vouchers to spend in the craft shops for Christmas I decided to treat myself.  I cut the die cuts out of tartan paper again from my favourite craft shop. These tartan papers are brilliant.   They are by craft style.

I cut the Sue Wildon heraldic die out. then using the inner frame out line I cut 1 in white and placed it behind the centre die cut, then foam padded that into the centre so it's raised.  I then cut a white and tartan outside frame from the Sue Wilson hearts of hearts putting one on top of the other, and the special friend was also cut out of the tartan.
Pearls from stash.

Well I started this post this morning with good morning, got interrupted so it was changed to afternoon!  Yes got interrupted again so that why it now posting this evening.

Stay save.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.  Oh I have again been a bad blogger.  Trouble is I didn't photo my Christmas cards.  The light wasn't good - still isn't plus I was making them getting them written and in to the envelopes as quick as I could be get them off in the post.  Gift bags were my other make and I have shown them so much.

Today I am showing two cards made from two new dies I got from Anna and Beth for Christmas.
I was very luck as I got four Sue Wilson ones all together.  I also got gift vouchers for my favourite craft shop in Cupar.

My cards are made out of parts of A3 card left from making Christmas cards, the back ground card is from Works 12x12 pad ( great value at £4). I cut out the Heraidic Square die from again left over card.  The same with the Hearts of Heart die overlaying the green on to the white and slightly off set. These two cards started off as me just playing to see how the dies cut and what I could do.  They turned out way better than I had planed so they are now in the box that Tammy can pick cards from.
Goes to show once again you need to use up those bits and pieces of card you have left over.

Well I for  one am glad things are getting back to normal, all this mad buying of food that folk were doing and will have wasted has gone until Easter.  Tesco have got Easter eggs on the shelves today.
The weather here is terrible, we are lucky and won't get flooded but there are so many who haven't been so lucky.  My heart goes out to them.  Here's hoping they will get help to get back into their homes as soon as poosilbe.

Now I am off to make some more cards from that box of bits.  I don't want to put it to one side, but will make up as many cards as I can.

Take care if you to drive on these water logged roads.
