Birthday Card

Hello fellow crafters,

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, however I'm really struggling to find time to myself for anything. And the small amount of time I do have, I've been spending it trying to finish a cross stitch I've been working on for a couple of months. I hope to have it finished soon to show you all. It seems so close to the end, but I know it'll probably take me a few more weeks.

Below is a pic of a birthday card I made today for my son's friend. He is turning 14, and it was a bit of a struggle to decide what to make. But this Kaisercraft paper is just perfect for boys.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm hoping when school goes back next week I'll have more time to create. It will be nice to be back in a routine, although my eldest son starts high school this year, so that will be an interesting time for us all.

Take care

Happy Birthday !!

Hi !!

I just wanted to share a quick photo of the birthday candle I made for my mum today. I've coloured this with my copics and added a few embellishments, just to make it pretty.

I tend to feel sorry for my mum today (on her birthday), because it's also my birthday !!!!! I have to try very hard and remember it's not all about me today .... it's her birthday too. So even though we bought her some lovely presents, something homemade and from the heart is also important.


Check out what I got from the lovely and talented Corry. Corry is also a member of the DT over at Bizzy Becs, and if you haven't seen Corry's blog yet, head over here and have a look at what you've been missing. Thanks Corry, it was a lovely suprise to wake up to today, especially with it being my birthday !!

I am now supposed to pass this on to 3 other people. It's extremely hard to choose just three .... where to I start ???



Thanks for stopping by.
Take care

Good Evening !!

I hope you've all been having a lovely day, wherever you are.
Today I have a card to show you that I decided to enter in the Mad for Markers blog challenge this month. The theme is "Australia Day", and all you need to do is make something either red, white and blue, or green and gold. How easy is that!!

These papers are from the Echo Park Paper Co., from their "Little Boy" range. Aren't they just gorgeous ... perfect for boy birthday cards!! I've got a lot of those to make in the coming months, so I think these papers will feature heavily in my upcoming cards.

I always struggle to make boy cards, so I hope you like this one.

Anniversary Card / Gift

Hi everyone,

I hope you're managing to stay cool today, if you're anywhere near me .... we've just reached 37°C, with a horrible northerly wind .... definately the kind of day to stay indoors and be creative.

Today I've made an anniversary card / gift box for my in-laws. It's their 45th wedding anniversary tomorrow, and I just couldn't let it pass without something special.

A lovely friend and fellow DT member shared the template for this gorgeous gift box with me recently, and I knew it would be perfect for the anniversary card.

I've had these very cute Magnolia stamps coloured for a while now, and thought they'd be perfect together. It represents my in-laws quite well, as they are very much outdoor people.

Anyway, it's almost time for me to pick up my eldest boy who I haven't seen for over 2 weeks (he's been spending some holidays with his dad), so I'm very excited to see him again.

Take care,
Honor xo

Happy New Year

Good Afternoon,
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas, and a safe and relaxing New Year.
After some time away, and a bout of sickness, I've finally found some time to get creative again.
I've been working on some special things, but can't share with you just quite yet.

I have got a simple gift card to show you today. I needed something quick for a birthday that I nearly forgot (ooops), and I had this cute image already coloured.

The Copics I used are;
Jeans - B91, 93, 97
Shirt - Colourless Blender and C1
Shoes - E55
Hair - C2, C4, C7
Skin - E000, E00
Balloon - BG32, BG34

The paper is from some scraps I had in my stash (I think it's 3 Bugs in a Rug, but not sure of the collection).

Anyway, have the in-laws down for this week, so I'd better drag myself away from my scrap room and be polite ..... lol

Take care, and I hope to be back soon with some more designs.
