Deer Me!

Hello, sorry to have been AWOL for so long, life has been a bit hectic this week.  More of that in a minute!  Its Steve's birthday tomorrow and this card I made for DD1 to give him.  I used the great image from Bugaboo (link on sidebar) with some scraps.  My trusty mini sewing machine helped too and I found this set of labels in my local farm/craft shop and they were so cheap so I just 'HAD' to grab them!  Let me know if anyone fancies them as I can get you a set for £9.99!  I had a little play with the paper piecing too.

And here is my friend Clare and me ( Im the hefty one!) when I went down to Eastbourne to meet her for the first time!  We had a great afternoon and it all went too quickly!  I was very lucky in that Steve offered to come as I wouldnt have managed the drive home.  I had a whale  of a time looking at her craft room!  There is something so special about seeing someone else's crafting space isnt there!  
I also met Bert & Simone (more on that on a later post!) who were sound asleep in their bed!  It was quite a spur of the moment visit as it often does tend to be but we had a great time and are already planning the next one!
Hope you get a good rest today Clare as I know you're a poorly bunny x

Here is the card Ive just finished for DD2 to give Steve.  I was going to use proper tartan for the background but it looked a little too old for her so I used PP's Little Check in Envy green.  I really like this card.  The image is by Teri over at Delicious Doodles, isnt it lovely and so great for men's cards.  Im going to have a play at using it for Christmas cards too.  Teri's looking for a DT too so why not have a peep?

Well, sorry for the long post and I hope you are all well and enjoying your Sunday.  Thanks for popping by!

Hi Keryn... how lovely to see a pic of you... i'll be able to envisage you when we have our little e-mails chats. We should set up a skype chat too...

These are both lovely cards - I find the bugaboo ones soooo funny - you can't dislike a bugaboo image. The second one is great and i recently bought that set of checks from PP.

You should seriously consider trying out for the DT as you produce excellent cards, particularly the ones you do using his images.

I'll PM you as i've we've a lot to catch up on. Also need to send your CD ROM back too.

Big hugs

Paula x x x
