This card was done by a lady who comes to the craft club and she has done it beautifully, using peeloffs, metallic pallete paints, parchment paper and mulberry paper and a stamp. its definately got the WOW factor.
My daughter made this card at craft club, she matted and layered and stamped the image.

This is mums birthday card, I had fun last night doing this card, I have used peeloff butterflies and dotted them down the edge of the card its an A5 card with a third cut of the front. I coloured the butterflies in with H20s and stuck 3 onto parchment and painted these too, once dried using silicone I attached them on top of 3 down the side. I had a bigger one did exactly the same and stick it to the front, stamped happy birthday and mum. I used the paper brads onto the corners, This is the first time I have used these and they look lovely. you get these from craftwork crafts

Ive been crafting!!!

This is for a friend who's mum died, I find it hard to do cards for men in this situation, it is stamped, then matted and layered with corners cliped and peeloff corners.

Brin and Gyp sitting waiting for me to take a photo, they love the beach and they even share a ball with each other. They only met 4+ weeks ago.

this is the area that I weeded and put bark down (no not the dog) decorative bark!
Brin just has to get in these photos. He's a poser

Our dog Brin, he has just been running along the beach playing with his new friend Gyp. He's 10 so he is taking a wee rest.

This is what we call the "rockies" alot of this end of the beach is full of rocks and pools where you can see the crabs and other sea critters. the dogs love this as the pools are quite warm.

This is taken from the same point but facing the Inverness direction

It was lovely and flat calm, thought I might see some dolphins today.

my walk on the beach today 25/5/09

Nairn beach walking towards the harbour

25th May 09

Oh my word where did this month go to, it has been a very strange month indeed, I gave up my job and im a lady of leisure, haha I wish! I am keeping my eye open for the right job, something i will be appy doing I always thought that would be working in a craft shop how wrong was I, It takes away the fun from your crafting, you spend more money than you make and your left with way too much crafting equipment and no time to do any of it. Anyway enough of that.
I have done a bit of crafting and will add photos of my work here.

3 ATCs I have done for a lady who I had promised last year and yes they will be posted tomorrow. And a matching "just to say" card

Birthday card for my Dad

My daughters card for her Grandad

A wedding Guest book, I had done the ladies
Invites the same so made them a guest book to match.

A card I love making and have done a few in different colours but these stamps are so cute.
