Age As Focal Point

Mid July, well it is when this goes live, but I'm still in June!  I am however working ahead and this is the card for Carole's challenge over at MAWTT
So she has asked us to make

Landscapes

Monday Morning in mid July - time for a new Ooh LaLa challenge and this time it's Lynn who's looking for;

Landscapes

So let's see those scenes where ever they may be!


My card is made from the Paula Oakley CD, I'm thinking the field is full of Oil Seed Rape - but I ain't no farmer so I could be wrong!

Hope you can spare time to join us, Jx

Anniversary

Monday morning again and time for a new challenge over at Ooh La La.  This time it's Julie who has chosen the theme, and she's picked,

Anniversary

as our theme, which happened to be perfect for me, as my parents celebrated their 60th (diamond) Wedding anniversary back in April so I made them this card to celebrate.


Again it's from the Shawn Jenkins Collection, and I made it a big 8x8 card with a scalloped edge...that's the beauty of CD crafting, you can scale up or down size to suit!

Challenges;
Di's Digi's - layer it up
Alphabet Challenge  - H is for hearts
As You Like It - Favourite way to add ribbon - a strip down the side or bottom of a card - just breaks up the layers and adds a nice bit of detail!
In The Pink - Special occasion - my parents anniversary.
Double D - Anything Wedding - wedding anniversary

...and here they are, my Mam & Dad on their wedding day!

Get Well Soon

So, there's been a bit of a demand on cards of late, first graduation, then my neighbour going in to hospital for a hip replacement, hence the need for get well and thank you cards, all mixed in with the usual birthday requests!

So this demand has spurred me on and today I'm sharing my get well card with you, as my neighbour comes home today and it will be so good having her next door again so I can pop in and out as I please!



I'm not even going to begin naming the papers - they are old, but colouring is by Promarker and the stamp by LOTV.

Challenges;
Creative Knockouts - For the girls
Sketch Tanten - Sketch 33
Pink Gem - Summer Colours

Finally, I promised I'd share some graduation pics with you...so here they are.  So proud of Alan, five years of study and he graduated with First Class Honours in Master of Chemical Engineering.
