Mixed Up Saturday

Good Morning Ladies,

Another weekend is upon us, they're whizzing by so fast, I can hardly believe we are almost at the end of October. 

Today I am sharing Danni's latest makes, all four items from 1  12x12 sheet of paper.  Danni puts numbers on hers and hides them around the house with goodies in for Advent for her girls.  Such a lovely idea, much more fun than a calendar.!! 
I will leave  a link to Danni's video explaining how she made all of them.  
Thamk you so much Danielle for allowing me to share your projects.


Karlie has made another beautiful card to share with us.  This one is made using a beautiful, delicate floral paper, which is just so pretty.  Karlie kept the card clean and simple, which allows that gorgeous papee to shine through. The lovely sentiment reads "life is much better with you in it". Which is lovely.  Thank you so much Karlie for making a card for us.

I have shared a couple more of my Birthday cards below..

Michele used the 'Swirly Scribbles' Thinlits die ti create the wavy background for this lovely card.  She has then die cut the sentimemt and added lots of individ flowers around the sentiment.  That sentiment just stands out beautifully  die cut in Mirror card.  Thank you so much Michele for a lovely birthday card. 


Maria made this gorgeous card for my birrhday, using Sue Wilson's  Weaving Dies  to create the beautiful  pattern featured on this card, placing it on that beautiful embossed background  was such a great idea.
Thank you so much Maria for such a lovely birthday card. 

Thank you all so much for taking part in todays post.
Have a lovely weekend Ladies,  fingers crossed for sunshine. XXX

Love and hugs to all of you,



  1. Morning Everyone
    Well we had a different day temp wise yesterday. We had fog for most of the morning and it was really cold compared to the last two weeks. So much so that the log burner was lit for the first time in the day.

    It's a 'swear' word this morning and perhaps I can get some play time in this afternoon. There are jobs to be done re closing the house for winter first.

    A lovely selection of cards and craftyness today. I like the idea of Danny's re Advent. Much better than the bought calendars.

    Have a good day everyone. I hope all dear Friends not feeling too well are on the road to recovery. HUGS on their way to you all. xxxx

  9. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    This is a test run as I cannot publish using Google. Brenda xx

  10. Hello Sandra and ladies,
    I have been having real problems with Google for the last two days, when I press publish my message seems to fly off into cyberspace. Yesterday I tried signing out as anonymous and that also disappeared never to be seen again. It is really frustrating as this has only happened since I did an upgrade. Have tried signing onto my Google account but that didn’t charge anything!!!

    SANDRA I’m really looking forward to watching the video on how you created those beautiful cards yesterday AND I also would choose the one with the white mat, it just stands out more. xx

    DANIELLE Love your project, what a great idea instead of an Advent calendar. You certainly got your full value from that 12 x 12 sheet xx
    KARLIE your card is lovely, so fresh and clean. The paper you used is gorgeous xx
    MICHELE and MARIA, Love the birthday cards you made for Sandra. xx

    VAL Enjoy your weekend with Barrie, is your DIL at home or still in hospital? xx

    MARIA, Pleased you enjoyed your holiday, it sounds a lovely experience, I’m sure you will be glad to be back home and get some rest!!! xx

    I’m going to try and publish now - fingers crossed etc. etc.
    Love Brenda xxx

  11. Hi Sandra & ladies
    Sorry late I didn't have a good nigh with my feet & legs they were very painful & couldn't get to sleep I came down & went in my chair with the raised cushion I went on Pinterest till 3ish then dosed off so didn't get up till 10. 30 when CU came down to let dogs out he moaned that dogs woke him up
    HAHA he's lucky that they let him have a lay in. So by the time we had br & cleared up it was time to go Tesco.
