I tried something a little different on the ECD blog yesterday.
Today is my anniversary. 16 years ago we visited the beautiful island of St Lucia on our 11th year of being a couple we got married. So that's a whopping 27 years!
I LOVE you Darren x
I used the Karen Burniston Hanging Charm pull card and her gorgeous happy frog. I am not sure why a frog when I think of my hubs. 😂😂
My niece Leanne is 30 tomorrow but had a party down on the farm she lives on lady night.
Busy day yesterday as I worked all day. Then off to the cinema to see The Jungle Book which was great by the way. And then to the farm for a fancy dress party. 80's style.
Back to the card. I used Cocoa the horse from Karen Burniston and the fence also from Karen Burniston to decorate the folded card which I created from a Jen Long die. My niece has 2 horses so I felt the decoration fitted 😀
Cocoa and the fence can be purchased from Crafts U Love or Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I suppose I had better share us in fancy dress. I was just in 80s neon. The other 3 80's films. Et, The Shining and Ghost busters 😁 can't say we are not game for a laugh 🙂
I became a great auntie Saturday and as soon as I found out Sunday I got making a baby card.
I used the Karen Burniston Oval Landscape accordion die and Taylored Expressions Hippo Birdy stamps.
It was lovely to use Pink and make this cute card to welcome baby Imogen. Congratulations Nephew Robert, Emma and Big Sister Ruby. X xx
I have a visitor to my crafty palace. Sometimes in the day, mostly at night.
I've named him Crafty, not very inventive. But he's a beautiful looking fox who I think lives just behind us.
I think the reason he was on my shed roof last night was I had had my heating on for a few hours and heat rises. So a snuggling little fox. ☺
And here's a fox card I made recently.
Another birthday card. This time made for another one of Harveys friends turning 13. Teen boy cards always hard but I decided on the comedy of the Taylored Expressions BIRTHDAY Grumplings .
I also used one of my new Marianne Borders for the blue spot paper.
All from Crafts U Love.
I had to make a quick card for my neighbour to give to her husband and whilst making cards for men isn't my favourite zip managed to knock this up with the Happy Birthday pop it up die from Karen Burniston. I also decorated the front with the Barn star from the star accordion.
I made this card... Actually for my mum total and forgot to give it to her, it's still in my shed. 😢
I used the circle pull card and Penny Black stamp. Some gorgeous papers from Echo Park.
I hope you've had a lovely Easter. My mum came for dinner and we had a huge roast and Darren made handmade ice cream and we made waffle cone baskets and they had chopped strawberries in theirs too. I forgot to take pictures this time but I'll add one from last time. We made it using Darrens new kitchen gadgets from Gourmet Gadgetry.
You may of seen the new Jennifer Long "Fox Tales" fold-a-long dies featuring an adorable Fox and owl shaped card. I love anything a bit different and of course I had to have these. However I didn't realise that there was a whole selection of these. Mainly because they appear mostly to be restricted to UK via wholesale distributors 😢.
I did manage to get this die in the post and last night made a quick card.
The cute bee inside is from Taylored Expressions and I stamped it with Tim Holtz Scattered Straw to give it a "no lines" look.
Fox and Owl currently out of stock at www.craftsulove.co.uk but will be back in stock soon.
I purchased this one from www.scrapbook.com in USA since not available in the uk.
