Butterflies and Flowers....................

 ....Two of my favourite things I might them both...I've used them to feature on the card I'm going to show you today...and I also used my new favourite toy'm finding the Cameo is as good as everyone said it was.   Although I'm still on a learning curve with it I've been reading all the info I came across and have practically gone cross-eyed watching the video oh my there's some extemely talented ladies around.  Wish that I could

Anyways before I get to boring you all silly I'll get said card uploaded but in all seriousness I'm not too sure about it...I'm not over-fussed with the colours I've used but it's done now so here goes.........

I made the card using a cutting file from Krewella Kreations the butterflies were another free download from...I think...UKScrappers...but I'm sorry I'm not sure...I coloured the butterflies with a Promarker to blend with the centres of the flowers and used stickles on the body but you can't really see it too well.  To finish the card I used a piece of cream cotton lace, ribbon and some stick-on flat backed pearls.  I also used small stick-on pearls in the centres of the flowers plus a Promarker to bring a bit more colour to the centres.  Hmm still not sure...!!

Well I'm sorry this is such a short post today I'll try to do better next time...thank you for calling by I hope you call again.....take care...!!

First Card Of 2013...........

Well I've finally got around to creating a card and not only is it my first card made this year it's also my first card using my Silhouette Cameo...I love it...the Silhouette Cameo  I mean...LOL...!!

Hope everyone's weekend was a  good one...mine was a bit hectic...DH took a couple of plants from the front porch to put in the garden to catch the rain on Saturday and slipped on the wet tile steps and ended up breaking a bone in his foot. Had to get our neighbour to drive to the hospital because I don't drive...never learnt and it's been one major regret of mine...!!  DH is not a happy bunny though as he's had to cancel his golf  for this Thursday...but he's getting over it...!! LOL  Said neighbours took me to the shops this morning too...on their suggestion...we live in a valley and have no public transport so with DH not being able to drive I was so grateful of the help. He has to inject himself everyday though until he has his next appointment in a fortnight...I've never known that before for a "break"...I know my son didn't have to do that when he broke his leg a few years back...but that was in the UK...and things change I suppose....!!

Anyway I'll get to the task on hand and upload my card...hope you like....

A Belated Happy New Year...............

Well I'm finally back after my long absence...I can't believe how long it's been since my last post...I've given the blog a new look and given myself the determination to do better and update more often.....I was a dismal failure last year I admit...!!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year...our holiday in the UK was lovely and enjoyable in as much as we got to see family and friends but on the down side I was left nursing a bad cold for the best part of our stay but I know for sure I wouldn't have been on my own in that respect..!!
I have so many photos of the cards I made before Christmas but honestly if I posted them all I'd bore you into a stupor so I'm only going to post some of them...hope you like!!
Before I do that I have to tell you I finally got to buying a Silhouette only arrived yesterday and as yet I haven't given it a test run but hopefully over the next day or so I'll be back to show something I've made with this space...!!

Now for the cards...these first two are cards I made for two of my sons...both having December birthdays.

The following are Christmas cards I made for my Grandsons and also a 1st Christmas keepsake and card for my Granddaughter.......



And to finish here's an assortment of other Christmas cards made......

I hope you've enjoyed visiting my blog...until next time stay warm and take care..!!
