Golden Wedding

Congratulations to my Mum and Dad they have been married 50 years tomorrow.  They have gone on holiday to a secret destination, just hope the weather doesn't spoil their plans.  I love these Lily of the Valley stamps, I couldn't choose between them so i used them both.  I made the flowers using a free cut on the cricut craft room.  The images are coloured with promarkers - I'm finally improving my technique.

Entering for the Allsorts Challenge 'Deco delight' and I love promarkers 'Anything Goes'

LOTV 9th birthday

My beautiful niece turned 21 last week and here is her card.  I love this image along with many other LOTV designs.  In fact I've just reorganised my stamps and was amazed by how many LOTV stamps I have amassed.  I have just treat myself to a couple of the new romantic stamps, they were the perfect images for a very speical card I have made for my parents wedding anniversary which is in a months time.  I spent a whole day playing in my craft room last week when it was half term, what a treat.  I can't wait to share the wedding anniversary card but I have to wait until the special day arrives.  In the meantime I want to enter this card for the LOTV 9th birthday competition.  Hopefully I can add a few more stamps to my collection.Thanks for stopping by.

Loving LOTV and Knitting!

A couple of recent cards made using LOTV stamps.

I love this range and have just ordered a couple of new ones, the images are so versatile, I have coloured these with Promarkers, I use them in a very simple way,  I haven't got hours for crafting and I had to do both of these cards in hurry.  I should build up a stash of cards but I just don't seem to work that way, I like to prepare cards specifically for the people who are going to receive them.

I've been having a go at knitting recently, inspired initially by Amber's attempt to knit a phone sock.  When i nipped in the wool shop for her, i spotted some scarf wool on offer, inspired by the wonderful advice by the lady in the shop I purchased a couple of balls.  The scarves are very satisfying, knit up extremely quickly and the result is a surprisingly professional scarf. 
Now I have well and truly got the knitting bug, I have embarked on knitting a teddy bear, a purple one of course!  It is the first time I have attempted to follow a pattern, the head and body are complete, partly due to the 4 days I have just spent on the sofa due to a mystery knee injury!!
Hopefully he or she will appear in a future entry.

So little time, so much to do

I have been crafting honest!!!  I just haven't got round to blogging. 

I have to confess I didn't decorate the pot for the bouquet myself, but I did make the bouquet.
Now I've discovered knitting, Amber and I are addicted to scarf wool and now I'm going to try knitting a bear, I'll probably get round to blogging them in August!
