Hubby Birthday Card

Well I'm well please with the way my card has turned out - its the first time I have used acetate and I can say I will be using it again, not as bad as what I thought it might be.

Katie-Mae (5year old great niece  decide to inform me today that she liked crafting better than me, when I asked how - she said cause she draws more pictures than me - touche little one lol x  dont you just love them.


She had great fun turning the handle on my big shot and embossing some cards to colour in.  As it my hubbys birthday on friday I asked if she wanted to make him a birthday card.  Here is her result so far ( it is work in progress - to be concluded tomorrow after school) - she used chalks to colour it in.

Right budding artist lol x
Another day at the old coral lol - no sleep last night - couple of hours from 6-10 then mam to dentist and me to docs.  Mam is fine and ive got ear infection - oh joy.  Ive got 30 mins then off to pick little one up from school and then to my assertive class tonight - will hopefully manage to squeeze some crafting in before I go to my class.

Wow - how lucky am I! I won both of these cards on Create and Craft - not on the same day, not even in the same week, but a couple of months apart,thats what I call lucky (to have been drawn out of the cup of chance) as they are two beautiful cards. This one is one of Teresa Welch's moveable parts cards - from her CD.
This one was made by Leann Chivers from Crafter Companions while promoting their 4 day deal - Angelica and Friends.

full of busy - dont know where the times goes lol. Ive been looking for inspiration to put some sample wedding invitations together, as well as putting finishing touches to family birthday cards. I decided I would make a card to enter a competition, something I have not done before in the world of paper crafting. This is the card I have done and fell like there is something missing - any ideas???
