wedding anniversary card

well its just started to rain but had woken up to sunshine! Typical i was taking the boys to lunch time picnic at Freiston Shore RSPB reserve 5 mins up road. hopefully it is a shower that will pass. First day of school holidays so they are full of excitement, while i ponder how to keep them entertained!
I made this wedding anniversary card for my sister in law. I used the new Papermania embossing folder for the backgound and sizzlit hearts. gold tinting on hearts embossing with black ribbon and clear gems. stamped sentiment.

Revamped background!

sorry been quiet for last few weeks. Life been busy... helped my parents to move and hubby been helping build kitchen etc for them. Didn't get job i applied for so was a bit down about that and so my crafting mojo got up and went. However silver lining is that my current work have began to give me more flexi shifts.
Any way having a craft clearout and saving for big shot as my original sizzix died! Decided to revamp site so that when my crafting mojo returns i have a brighter site to display on.
Off to summer clean (bit late with spring cleaning!)!

Lucy the flowerpot cat

Well woke up to sunny sky but cloudy and windy. Pottered in garden and one of my helpers sat watching me weeding around the pond.Lucy decided to sit in the flowerpot just in case she could pounce on a frog i might disturb. Unfortunately poured with rain this afternoon so rain stopped play! I have been trying to complete a job application form this evening, but also want to get some birthday cards done for this month. Oh well hopefully finish it tomorrow.

My favourite flower and the first bloom has appeared in my garden. I love this pink variety. so lucky inherited this with the garden when we moved here 4 and half years ago. roll on summer sun ..soon please!

zesty gardener

First Post !!

welcome to my blog and my first posting. I've become addicted to selling on ebay so delayed setting up my blog but here now. I'm sure i'll have a play with the backgrounds ...i'm still hunting for some peonies to post. My first garden bloom appeared yesterday so will pop out and photograph for my blog. Over next few days I will up load some cards as my week has calmed down - who else gets tired of chauffeur duties to cubs, youth club, football etc !! Well at least i can say my boys are active!
