Chris and Robs News: Three weeks old today!

Bless! - here's a cute pic of my pal's baby - and the card I made for him. It's the pram embellished one slightly up and to the right of his head.

Couple more cards

A couple of quickies a get well card for Mum's next door neighbour and a 'spare' for the card box at work. I checked today and I've sold 9 cards. It's gonna be a long time before I'm a millionaire but its a start!

Shadow Frame for my sis's B'day

It's not quite ready but I'll be picking up the real photo for the middle just before I go away so this was poss my only chance to take a piccy before I give it to her. If I get chance I'll update it.

My sister's birthday was deemed an important enough occasion for me to cut into my belove Mr Cogsmo papers from Cosmo Cricket - well she's worth it! The wording down the far side says 'Boys are 90% mischief and 10% dirt. I think those figures need checking

I've also uploaded her birthday card which is a little more refined and sophisticated - but not as much fun!

Those robots with my nephews faces in them make me chuckle every time I look at them!

"And son" has been busy.....

I've had a nasty headache all day today so "& son" has been keeping himself busy with my stash.

He had 3 birthday cards to make so that kept him going for a while.
I'm so very proud of my clever 8 year old! and the headache has nearly gone so I can have go at making something now.

Late Post Pals Challenge Card

I made one of these cards for the post pals challenge on the cute card Thursday challenge - only 5 days too late! The other is to go in the card box at work.

Like the backing paper? I made it myself with clip art. I got fed up of searching for some dinosaur paper so decided would be quicker to do it myself!

Well I've been crafting all day (apart from a quick shopping trip/lunch with my sis) but can't post much as 2 of the things I've been working on are gifts so for the moment they're secret

However, I have made a quick male card as good luck for an interview. It's A DCWV card blank with a foam embellishment (the basket won't hang right but I've had enough - it will just have to do.) The clouds are vellum stickers by sticko

What a day it's been at work - I definitley needed to unwind! I think the bombay sapphire helped a little but getting the scissors and paper out has made me feel almost human again!

This is my entry for the MSE 'green' challenge. I'll pop it in the card box at work as it could be used for either a girl or boy so should be good for a 'last minute' card

I made it using the template at

I really really need a circle cutter! (I had to draw around a beer glass - lol - well it is Friday night!)

Granny and Grandad on honeymoon

This page was originally my son and his 'first love' age 3 but it seems to have morphed from that through a layout of my Granny and Grandad's engagement to one of them on honeymoon.

Papers were all from a pack that I bought from Costco. Wording is word art - Book Antiqua

Special thanks to Saveapenny on the MSE forum for sending me the template I used for the flower. I can see a few more of them coming your way some time soon
