Crafting Session at Mums house....

On a Tuesday, I go to my mums house,she lives a few miles away in the next village....we have a tea and craft session, mostly tea and chat with a bit of cardmaking thrown in ....anyway I made three cards today,not loads I admit but we did a lot of chatting today...lol.. I also did some planning this morning ,wrote all the things I have to do down in a book...probably lose the book now and be just as unorganised as I usually am....
This is my entry into an Easter challenge over on the cb forum, the deadline was today so I made it by the skin of my teeth again...
This is the second card for my friend Jayne,the other one is below...Jayne's neice has had a baby girl.....fantastic news...I like this one pink and patchwork go well together I think..

This is a wedding card for my friend Jayne, her daughter is getting married Easter weekend....this card is for Jayne to give to her daughter, I still have to make my own one to send...mine is going to be slightly different , she is having a fraggle wedding...."down at fraggle Rock"....I love the little hearts on this one but it is slightly too girly flowery pinky for me....but I know Jayne will like it...so thats what matters..

Finally, some time to craft.....

Finally had some time to craft this week, we have been very busy in the garden, building new veg beds , fencing off the garden and generally trying to tidy up.....the weather has been so beautiful I couldn't stay in and craft I had to be outside......anyway, I managed to get a bit done ,must get my seeds sorted out now.....chickens next.....

I don't quite know what to call this, its like a card but its not and its like an exploding box but its not....anyway whatever you want to call it, I like the way it turned out and I would make another one......




I borrowed mums Whiff of Joy stamp again to do this card, I am loving their stamps , must buy some of my own I think....but I am sure mum doesn't mind...at the bottom of this card I used some shrink plastic to make a smaller image...worked quite well I think..
Another Sarah Kay image, as you can see I am loving this stamp at the moment , I must treat myself to another one....
A sarah Kay bookmark for the swap on the cb forum....I love the colours in this one....and I am loving the huge flower at the moment....
mmmm.....black and white atcs, makes your eyes go funny....
I love the colour of the green on these oriental papers....
These are my tags for the March swap on the CB forum, very sickly pink and green but easterish I think..

Cards, ATCs and Scrapbooking,wow all at once....

Before I get onto my crafting today I just thought I'd share a little story with you , my youngest daughter came into the house and said her sister had gone over the road to see our neighbour , he wanted her to sit on his children , and she was quite indignant at this point....he is going to pay her!!....out of the mouths of babes eh....
She is looking forward to Easter holidays at the moment, anything that takes her away from school and home all day.....
I had great fun making these cards today, I used my new basic grey papers, Sarah Kay stamp and my mothers Whiff of Joy stamps......I have been inspired by Jules (Devonbunny) creations for a while now...so I adapted some of her ideas to fit my own style, I hope I have made a good enough job of them.....




Just a few atcs today, I love making atcs to send to people but if I spent all my time doing these I wouldn't do anything else.....





This is my Mothers Day Present, a little scrapbook album, no pictures just stamps and quotes...I can't show too much incase she comes on here and has a look.....don't want to spoil it do we...
