Cute Card Thursday


At first glance I thought I don't think I can do this challenge but I had a go and here is what I came up with... I am quite pleased with the simplicity of this card!!
Sometimes less is more!!
The cake cases have been highlighted with a silver gelly roll pen but doesn't show up very well on the photo.
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

We took honey out this morning to a local garden centre where we sat outside and had a cup of coffee she was so tired from all the excitement she went to sleep for a couple of hours this afternoon so it gave me chance to have a play.
Can't remember where the papers are from it was a piece in my scraps box just asking to be used!!!

She has lots of nice new toys and what does she like to play with most the old sweeping brush bless!!!

So overwhelmed I could cry!!!

Hi I am back from a wonderful relaxing holiday in Cornwall we had the most glorious weather and the cottage was gorgeous.
My birthday last Monday was one of the best for a while (we have a very sad anniversary that falls on the same day and it can sometimes taint it a little bit).
My son and his girlfriend came with us and they paid for me to go to a very posh Spa for a day I had an aromatherapy facial and full body massage and a very nice lunch overlooking Fistral Beach on the Tuesday... Becci and I went together and Neil and his dad had a boys day playing pitch and put and surfing it was wonderful.
And today I have come home to a postbox overflowing with he most gorgeous cards you girls really are the best and so talented it feels like my birthday all over again. I will take pictures and get them loaded in the next day or so.
I hope to catch up with all your blogs over the next couple of days and get back to normal and make some cards but back to reality for now and the washing and ironing!!!
Love Sue :o)

Father's Day Riley Moose

I realized today it is father's day the day after I get back from my holiday next week so I made this card quickly tonight.
I wanted to use another Riley Moose this time he is gardening I have kept this card very simple as I don't think my dad would appreciate anything too fussy.
Paper are DCWV from a bargain stack I bought last year from QVC.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

New Baby

My friend had her baby on Sunday weighing in at a healthy 8lb12oz a little girl called Gemma.
She already has one little girl who will be 2 on Monday so she is going to be very busy for sometime to come!!
I am sure it will be Lovely in a few years time when they are two close sisters.

I made a couple of cards that I posted a few days ago and of course she will be getting the pink one!!
I have made this one for Ellie so she won't feel left out.

Annie very kindly sent me this image some time ago and I have just been waiting to use it.
Thanks for looking Sue :o)
