Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to another 'Mixed Up Saturday'
I had planned to upload a Video Tutorial for you to follow but sadly we were
Delayed getting back from Colchester last night, we got in at about 10pm and
To be honest I just wanted to go to bed, the journey home was horrible, lots of traffic and hold ups, I'm not sure how much longer I can manage to do both journeys in one
day for, it's just too long to sit in one position, I try not to jiffle about too much on the
Journey home as I would hate Paul to have to feel that he needed to rush.
Mum was ok, she was asleep when we arrived but soon woke up and had lots to
talk about, we took lunch which she enjoyed too, her chest does sound congested,
We tried to explain the importance of using her inhalers today as she hadn't been using them regularly, I explained that she would end up back in hospital if she
didn't start using them properly, thankfully her antibiotics seemed to have
worked their magic, I did take her a large pack of Bio Live yoghurts as she
Says her mouth has been sore since taking the antibiotics, so hopefully they will
Help restore some of her good bacteria.
Anyway onto today's crafts........
Made this Card for Max’s 5th Birthday-I used a Spellbinders die for the card base and the topper is by Whizz Kids . I won a Whizz Kids bundle ages ago-there were stamps, papers & a decoupage book of toppers. I used the toppers as it made a quick card and the card folds flat for posting to the USA. Max has recently started to play “soccer “ so this topper seemed perfect.
Thank you Michele, now let's have a
Look at your shopping.
Some lovely new dies Michele, some
Great dies to make 'Man cards' the first
Thought that comes into my head is one of those tool storage boards that my Dad had in his garage, that 'Peg Board will be really useful, I can't wait to see the amazing cards that you'll design with this haul.
Thank you so much my lovely.
Janet sent me a photo of another one of her amazing hexagonal
Boxes to share with all of You, this one has been decorated with the Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. Janet has added
So much intricate detail including clocks,
Stopwatches and potion bottles.
Then hiding inside is an amazing handmade teacup with the White Rabbit inside and Alice peering in.
Such an amazing work of art Janet,
Thank you so much for sharing it
With all of us.
Karen has very kindly sent me some photos of her newly organised Craft Room.
Karen you have so much space and everything is SO organised!
I will add Karen's description of things that are still to be done/added......
"Here are a couple of photos of my roomI still need shelving, curtains etc and when my sister in law returns our pasting table is going to go on the left hand wall My friend is going to help with making “something” to decorate a wall and I will be putting up some pictures"
Karen it will look amazing when you have added your
Finishing touches. How many things did
You discover that you had 'put somewhere safe'??

Your spare time!
