Boys card for Great Nana

This is a nice simple card from the boys... I used more of the cardstock from my Scrapagogo Greetings Kits... Cuttlebug Embossing Folders... Stampin' Ups Butterfly Punch and Sentiment from Flight of Butterfly stamp set and the background stamp is Stampin' Ups French Filigree!

You'll have to excuse the poor photo's again... this time I used my iPhone, again as the cards were leaving the house... nothing like last minute is there :s

And another!

Here is the card I created for HisLordShip's nana's birthday... I used Cardstock from my Scrapagogo Greetings Kits, Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Oval Nestabilities, Thickers for the numbers and the decoupage is some I've had for a while.

The party was fantastic... a good time was had by all... with the excexption of one memeber, but that's their downfall... Nana had an amazing time and loved that everybody signed the large A4 Decoupage Card that I turned into a booklet for her (photo's will follow)... I now have the task of going through the 424 photo's we took and making her a scrapbook album as her gift!


You wait all month for a post and then three come along within days of each other... Lol

As Promised... Thank-You Note Card Photo

Matching Note Card to the Invites I made for 80th Party
(Please excuse poor quality of photo... was a last minute photo before they left the house)
I created 25 of these in just an hour or so!

I used the same black cardstock from my supplies, Stampin' Up Bridesmaid Speciality Paper, Stampin' Up Black Ink Pad and the new Thank-You Stamp from the mini Catalogue.
I left the inside blank!

I shall be back later with photo's of a few other things i've been creating :)


I can't believe we are in June already... Where is the year going?

So I seem to have found myself in a depressive funk since returning from GogoGetaway... tried to kid myself I wasn't but can no longer do it. I hate how it creeps up and just takes over... Need to find some new ways of dealing with it... Set myself some new Realistic Goals and stop saying I'll do this or that and never get round to actually doing it! Forgetting to do things... Late payments... Forgetting to reply to emails are just a few of the things that have come to light... So ladies who emailed me regarding GogoGetaway photos... I will get an email to you and apologise for the delay!
When I go through these funks as I call them, I tend to shut myself off as much as possible and spend way too much... I've set myself a task of buying only things I can use over and over again like punches or nestabilities but even then I can go OTT and spend a small fortune... I need to get a grip on my crafting purchases... Is there an addicts group out there???

I've been doing lots of thinking about how I need to try and organise my time better and not procrastinate so much on the pc looking at everyones blogs through Google Reader... Inspiration overload... So many nice ideas and not enough time to excute any... I need a serious kick up the butt!

I have a been creating though so suppose that's one good thing... I did 25 little Thank-You cards to go with the Invites for HisLordShips nana's 80th party... Which I will try and upload in a moment!

First post from my phone... So hoping it goes through ok :) x

Edit... Photo of Thank-You card is on my pc so will upload as soon as lazy bugger gets up :P
