May Class- All Men's Cards

Evening ladies
Hope you are all well.
I am busy making lots of cards for my family and for the classes. In March and especially April there are lots of birthdays and anniversaries coming up, so busy making a variety of cards.
I have finished the decorating thank goodness and looking forward to working outside for a change, if the weather keeps up. Spring is on its way, hopefully to stay....

For the May class and the cards for men, I have a few new papers from Bo Bunny and stamps too!

Always enjoy making samples when I have new papers and stamps, not that I need any more but who's counting...not me!!!!

      Leanne has taken these photographs just with a sneak peek at part of the cards.

Close up on this one reveals some lovely wooden buttons. What would we do without buttons?
Decided it looked better with two buttons on this card so had to dash out and buy more before they sold out.

 Thought you might like to see how Charlie is getting on as I haven't included him of late.

                                                             Lazy Boy...

                 And Nosey Boy.....just coming into my craft room looking for trouble.

Thank you for dropping by and hope to see you soon.
Take care.

Multi tasking........

Hello everybody

Hope you are enjoying this nice spring weather, not... an indoorsie day today me thinks.
Been busy decorating the hall and landing of late. Hubbie painting all the woodwork, which seems endless, and  I have just finished wallpapering this morning, thank goodness. Just the emulsion now, and Hubbie is tackling that as we speak...or as I type.

This morning I was sorting all the washing to put in the machine, pasting the next piece of wallpaper ready to put up, while waiting for that, I was stamping things ready for the packs.... think that is called multi tasking... in a big way. You have just got to do these things...good job I enjoy...not the wallpapering, nor the washing, I mean the crafting...

                                 Sneak peek at the packs for April... Spring Chickens

Here is a peek at the pile of card I have die cut ready for the class, looks really good in co-ordinating colours, every though I say so myself......

                                   Sneak peek of a tiny flower I have used on one of the cards.

Off to carry on with my packs, after a cup of tea that is and I better make one for the worker who is still painting....

Take care till next time, and happy crafting.

Count Down To Spring.......

Hello everybody
Taken a few photographs of the spring flowers from my garden so thought it would fit in nicely with the title for this blog post. Spring is on its way thank goodness, with the nights getting lighter a little later and the mornings coming lighter earlier.... that's a tongue twister. All for the better.

I love seeing all the daffodils coming in to bloom............

Last year I planted more crocus bulbs in my rockery, as every year the birds eat them and I only ever have a few to show. Don't mind bird sharing but I think they get a big greedy.  They look much better this year.

                                          Love the primroses too!!!

Lastly the tulip bulbs planted in my pots, just showing their leaves, some of which should be the ones Jean kindly gave me, that came all the way from Holland. I know all tulip bulbs normally come via Holland, but mine came via Jean, via Holland...... Thank you Jean...

Now better get back to the samples for the April class before you all get bored of the gardening lark!!!

Saturday 5th April is my 'Spring Chickens' class.

Bright shades of yellow, orange and blues.

Now you can see what I am talking about with this sneak peek of a chicken....

My May class is Saturday 3rd and will be cards all male themed, but will get back to you as soon as.....
Thank you for dropping by.
Take care and see you soon.
