Hi All

Its a long time since I last posted but lets hope I can keep it up for a while.

I have not been making many cards lately as my Rheumatoid Arthritis is painful at the moment and sometimes it is difficult to move my hands. Lets hope I get it fixed soon.

Here is a card I created for my Nephew who is a big Everton fan.


I think I obtained  the image off the net somewhere. I coloured it with my promarkers in the club colours. Lets hope he likes it.

Next is a card I did for my sister who is very old today, ( I hope she does not see this) Happy Birthday Maureen.

Again the image is from the net and coloured with my promarkers. As for the paper and coloured card where are they from you may ask, your guess is as good as mine.
Thats it for now take care all.

Hi All

 Sorry I have not posted for a long time but I now have some cards ready for posting

This card was for my nephew who loves to play the banjo and tries to sing. I downloaded this image from the net and was able to make an appropriate card for him. I am sure it made him laugh.

This card was for my brother who was sixty five this year I always find cards difficult to make for men.Sorry the picture is not very good.

This card was for my husband who  became a pensioner this year. I rub this in a bit as I still have a few years to go. We have just invested in a static caravan and he intends to get fit and walk along the beach and  ride his bike so I thought I would add a nice old bike and car to his card just to match my old man.

The final card is for our newest Great Nephew Rory Gerard Mulholland. I took the picture before I added his name to it.

I also made this one just in case he was a girl.

Well that's it for now see you soon

Hi All

Well what a great wedding we had and the weather was lovely but it was a little too warm. My Niece and new Nephew had a great day and had big grins on their faces all day. And here they are.

Don't they look so happy, unfortunately the day was over all too quickly and before we realised it was time to go home. We now have many happy memories to look back on.

This card is for my Niece to give to her Mum and Dad to say thank you for all they had done.

I forgot to take a picture of the wedding card I made my memory definitely is getting worse with age.
See you soon.

Hi All

Well here it is the last of the countdown card for my Niece the wedding is this Saturday. I can not believe it has come so quickly and I am sure it will pass as quick.

I now see the paper over the  border is not quite centred but it would not be one of my cards if it was perfect.

The verse was to give her a little advice from her old Auntie Aud who has been married for 40years so I think I have the right to give a little advice.

Now to work on the wedding card.

see you soon.

Hi All

Here we go again I have been able to make an exploding box card for my niece for her two week countdown card. Not sure how I have had the time to make the card as I have been glued to the TV watching the Olympic what a show I have enjoyed the games so much.

This is my card

I decided to make a exploding box for my  two weeks card. We were going to Nottingham for her final dress fitting so I was able to deliver it to her. The only problem I had was getting a little bride and groom for the centre of the card. I could not get one so I cut one out on my cricut in white and then black stuck them together and made it stand up. I think it looks good.  

See you soon

Hi There

Well here we go another week and another card. This is my four week countdown card for my Niece.

I know she liked this card and on the final page I added a picture of the future bride and groom.
We went to the church today, where the wedding is being held, my husband is going to do a reading  and we needed to know what was expected of him. 

Its now three weeks to the wedding but unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the card.
See you soon.

Hi All

I hope you are all well and have not experienced any flooding but if the forecast is correct the weather should be changing any time soon. Let's hope we are in for some sunshine any time soon.
Here is the card I made for my Niece who had five weeks to her wedding, now it is almost 4 but you have to wait for that card.

It was a 2 hour class and she kept us busy but we all enjoyed it.

See you soon.
