Special birthday xxx

Hi all,

It has been quite a while since I posted something but trying to find the time to do anything crafty is almost impossible!!!! Anyway our Aidan asked me to make something special for his "little girlfriend"'s birthday so I thought that the little cowgirl stamp for TGF would be ideal for that. The card was a success with Aidan and the little girl too!!! I mad a matching enveloppe, gift tag with her initial on and a little sweet box. So here is what I came up with ....

I will be back to post more soon as we have been celebrating yesterday our Lilu's first birthday. I made some thank you card and gift bag for everyone!!! Will post them soon... Well I hope!!! In the meantime I am going to try and make the most of this depressing weather -although I heard a bit of sunshine should reappear over the week end!!! Have all a wonderful week end xxx

Time goes by sooooooooooooooooo quickly..................

Happy Friday everyone! It has been a while since I have posted anything but had a few things to sort out in my life!!!! Anyway all is good -well it has to be!!!- and here I am to show you that little doll after painting and varnishing. I don't really do 'blues' but my Mum wanted it in that color and I must admit that I am quite happy with it. Well my Mum was so that is all matters....

Hope you all have a wonderful day and a sunny week end!!! We are still hoping for the sun to come out over here!!!!!

Something other than cards...

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all had a fab week. I didn't get a chance to post anything much this week but I have been busy making something other than cards. I used to make dolls out of salt dough but I have discovered the "air hardening clay" which is more resistant to humidity. I made one for my mother in law for xmas but she told me that "she" was a bit bored on her own up on the wall and needed a little brother!!! The little curly haired doll will probably be for my mum -who has already got a pretty big collection of them!!!- as mother's day is in a couple of months over here... They are happily drying in the sun as they need about 6 days before being painted and  then varnished... The next thing I might give a go at is "porcelaine froide" which is apparently a delight to work so watch this space...

Have all a wonderful day. Take care...

Cards in a flash!!!

Happy Saturday all!!! Hope you are having a wonderful week end and have as much of a sunshine as we have over here! What a beautiful spring day. Today our Aidan and Tristan were invited to 2 of their little friends' birthday and I must admit that I had completly forgotten about it so I made 2 quick cards last night for them! And here they are... The stamps are from Pink Cat Studio, design papers for Stampin up and Crate Paper and a few buttons, ribbons to finish them off!!! And here they are....

Tomorrow should be as sunny as today so we will have our first BBQ of the year with families and friends! Have all a fab week end. Take care and have fun...

My kinda gal!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone. Hope the week is starting well for you all, staying away from nasty bugs and enjoying the sunshine if you are having any!!! So I'm still playing with my new stamps from The Greeting farm and this one is my favorite one : the Cheeky Rockabilly coloured with promarkers and to make her look ever saucier I have given her big brown eyes!!! Over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog, it is all about circle and scallop and over at the CPS Blog, they have a fab sketch so I combined those 2 challenges together and off the card goes to be included!!! The starry paper is from Fancy Pants and the Dotty one from Echo Park, ribbon and sparkly hearts to give it a bit of ouh la la... Let's rock!!!

Have all a wonderful day!!! Take care and have fun.

Now onto a card! This one is for Friday sketch challenge. The stamp is the Cheeky Mate from The Greeting farm -sooooooooooooooooooo cute-, sentiment and brads from Stampin up, patterned papers from Crate Papers and some buttons and ribbons to embelish it!

Happy Birthday CCT!!!

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you are all having a very relaxing day!!! Weather is a bit grey in Britanny but the boys wanted to go for a walk on their roller skates, we didn't get caught in the rain!!!!!!!!!!! At least it gave me another excuse for not doing the ironing! That pile has been staring at me for days and I just keep ignoring it!!!!!!!!!!! This week  cute card Thursday is celebrating their 4th birthday so the challenge is birthday card. I played along with my new stamps from The Greeting Farm and I soooooooooooooooo love them! That one is the cheeky shooter, patterned papers from Crate Paper, brads and wooden stars to finish it off... Yee Ha....

Enjoy the rest of your week end !!! Take care and have fun.

Children's day

Happy wednesday everyone! Kiddies day over here in France as it is their day off so the house is full of life!!!! Today our Lilu had her jab done, bless her. Doesn't take the smile off of her face though... Now for the card part, this one is for a friend of us who is expecting a baby boy for next month. I wanted to do something other than a pastel coloured one so here is what I came up with. It is for the cute card Thursday challenge where they have a fab sketch. The stamp -one of my favorite for babies card- is from Whipper Snapper, Sentiment is from Stampin up and Papers from Dream Street.

Have all a wonderful day and hopefully the sun is going to make its big entrance soon for us to enjoy over here... Take care of yourself and have fun.

Birthday boy

Happy Tuesday all!!! Today is a very special day in our household as it is Aidan's 8th birthday! A very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little grumpy clown!!!!  When we asked how he felt about being 8 now he replied "well I feel bigger and I write even better now!!!!" Bless him... He was ever so happy with the canvas his stepdad painted for him, his books, his game and the card I made him. But he pointed out that I forgot to make a bookmark for his books!!!! So here is the card I came up with. The little guy -colored with promarkers- is from Whiff of Joy, sentiment is from Stampin up and  papers are from Cherry Arte.

Have all a wonderful day. Take care of yourself...

I'am quite impressed myself! Two cards in one day!!!! This is the card for the High Hopes challenge wich is not easy to be green -make a St Patrick card or add some green. So here is my card... I love this little guy sitting on his pot of gold. Promarkers to colour him, papers are from Daisy Buckets.

As for our little walk, well the sunshine disapeared even faster than it came out and we actually stayed home where I caught up with the housework and washing!!! oh what fun.... Take all care of yourselves and have a fab week end.

Happy Friday everyone. Hope you all had a good week and yes the week end is approching! YIPPEE!!! And here is a card!!!  I do love this little pizza man from from high hopes- , papers are from Scrapbook  Australia and the flowers are from American Crafts. I made this one for my dad to thank him for all he does for us... He is spanish and not italian but I am pretty sure he will like it! Anyway this has actually opened my appetite and I am going staight into the kitchen to start on lunch before the boys come back from school.

Hope you all have a good day. It is a beautiful spring like day over here in Britanny and Lilubel and I will enjoy a nice walk this afternoon.... Take all care of yourselves...

It was grandmother's day over here in France today so happy Nana's day to all the grandmas out there and especially to mine who turned 97 this year... Also to my dear mum and the boys didn't forget to ring her to wish her a very good day. So today's card is dedicated to them... The stamp is from Whiff of joy -which was quietly stamped for me by the lovely Sue. I coloured the image with my promarkers, the papers are from a little pad I bought over here and bits and pieces to finish it off!!!

Hope you had a great weekend and now I need to get ready for the dreaded Monday!!! Take care of yourselves xxx

Anyway the stamps are from Pink Cat Studio and I love them -sooooooooooooooo cute-, papers are from Paper Salon and bits and bobs to embelish it..........
And inside...
Our little Lilubel is growing up pretty fast and after a couple of weeks of being unwell with a bronchiolitis, she has fully recovered and is now full of life and smiling again....
Take all care and yourselves and I cannot promise that I will be a better blogger but I will do my best!!!! See if the kiddies let me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
