Birthday gift set fro friend

Hello all.  Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year!  So far so good here, no complaints.   I have a friend who requested a set of handmade cards that she could give for any occasions as her birthday gift.  So this is what I came up with.

I used Lavinia stamps, Altenew stamps and Art Impression stamps.  All my favorite stamps too.  Stamped them all and then put them in a clear 6x6 plastic box, that I have idea where I got it but I still have 4 left to use.  Added a strip of patterned paper for a belly band and then a birthday tag on top of that.  There are 5 cards and envelopes, all the cards are blank inside.  I think she will really like it. What do you all think, I'd love to know your thoughts........

Well off to deliver this gift and birthday card.  Hope you all have a fun and crafty day!

Until Next Time

Happy Crafty 2019!

Hello everyone out there in crafty blog land.   What's everyone up to this year?  We moved my mum in with us in November and are still adjusting, LOL.  I am sure it will all be fine.  I now have all of her craft stash in with mine and we moved the craft room into our dining room as my small kitchen area I used for my craft area was no longer workable with all of her goodies.  So far it is working fine for us.  Mum makes cards too but does the Anna Griffin and Crafters Companion type cards.  So now I have a bunch of new things that I can use now.  

Winter weather has been kind to us so far this year, lots of sun and not very cold.  Today is 75 and sunny, can't complain about that.  

So I have a friend that has asked me to make her a box of cards for her birthday in a few weeks, she wants a mixture  so I am doing six cards and found this cute clear box that I plan to put them in with a pretty bow.  Plus a fabulous birthday card too, of course.  I have 3 done and need to make 3 more yet. I will share the set once I am finished.  

Well just wanted to pop in and hay Hi to everyone and see what's new in your craft room this year.  New to me are 2 of Mom's die cut machines ( Gemini and Sizzix) and lots and lots of dies and embossing folders that she has and barely uses.  So my goal this year is to try to use all the new goodies and the old too, lol.  We'll see how it works out.......

So thanks for popping by.  Please drop a note and let me know what your up to in your craft area this year, I'd love to know.  Well Happy Crafting and Card making!   Stop back soon to see the set of cards I'm working on.

Until Next Time,

another Lavinia stamped card

Here's a birthday card I made for a friend's birthday.  It's 3D, as I used foam tape to raise the brown and green die cut areas.  Stamped with Lavinia fairy and used Lavinia alcohol ink background paper.  I just can not get enough of these Lavinia stamps.  I want to get more but that will have to wait. 
Thanks for popping by and leaving your comments.  I love to hear what y'all think of my creations.....

Until Next Time

Sympathy Cards

So Today I had to make 4 sympathy cards for 4 very close friends who lost their Mom a few days ago.  I used Lavina stamps and papers..... Hope you like them.   These are always hard for me so I hope they will like them.   Inside I stamped:  With Sympathy and Friendship, we are sending thoughts and prayers to help you through......

Until Next Time,

Card for Male friend

Hi all, here's a quick pic of a card I made for one mine and DH's male friend's who had a birthday BBQ.  He loved it by the way.    Super simple to do..... had apron template for card and just cut smaller plaid paper and glued on added pocket and googled grill tools and glued them on too.  Also added the grommets for more detail...that's it.   Here's the card.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Until next time,
