Hi All

I hope you are all keeping warm in this miserable cold weather how things have changed since the weekend. It was so lovely and warm here on Saturday in fact it was far  too warm in my sun room. So out came my patio chairs and the sun shade and there I was enjoying the sun for the rest of  afternoon. Life was bliss for us all here for the day in Lincoln.

So today it is chilly again so I decided to make a couple of cards with my new do-craft Michael Powell Stamps. I have always wanted to go to Tuscany in Italy so these stamps have become a bit of a favourite with me. 

The pictures do not do justice to all my hard work. I did have a third stamp completed but my matting and layering proved to be a problem again so it ended up in the bin. I coloured the images with my pro markers which took a lot of time but I do enjoy colouring so much. 

See you soon

Hi All

I hope you are all fit and well. I have had a great day today, I spent the morning ironing (not so great) and as it was sunny outside I went to sit in my summer house. It was very warm sat there in the sun  and I promptly fell asleep. Well I had a busy morning or anyway that is my excuse.

This week we had two babies in my circle of friend, a little girl here in Lincoln and a little boy over in Australia. So would you believe it with the beauty of the Internet we were able to view little Zac in his hospital bed. This was such a privilege to see him this way and I would like to thank Sue and Steve and Beth for allowing us this privilege. Little Lily was born in Lincoln and our friends Simon and Lorraine are her proud Grandparents. So I needed to make two Baby cards to congratulate the families. 

I used papermania paper, my nesties to mount the digi stamp, and my cricut machine to cut out the letter.
See you soon.
