Beautiful day

Today was a Beautiful day!
As I walked into work at half seven this morning I had a feeling it would be a nice one. It was clear and bright and there was the smell of spring in the air.
Sure enough the sun shone bright and the air warmed beautifully.
I wanted to make sure that I took a little bit of that home with me. So I treated myself to these....
Beautiful blooms. x

This was my gift to my husband for Valentines.

I can safely post it now that he has it.

It was made at Sharons valentines class and I have to say, what a fantastic project. I love it! x

This is the covered tin.


You open it up to find this assortment of wonderful things.

Who would not have been happy to receive this?

Short and sweet post today as it is half term and I have the boys to entertain. Hope you all have a great week x

My New Toy

On the way home Saturday I popped into Netto to see if they had something I saw in there flyer.
I thought that they would be sold out. So when I found a whole stack of them I was totally surprised.

Now the thing is I do already own a full sized machine. As to its whereabouts I am not really sure, I expect it is in the loft at my parents.
Still no need to worry about that right now as I have this little beauty. Just perfect for my paper crafting.

Once home I had a little play and these are the first cards made with it.
Hope you like them x
Thanks for stopping by please leave a comment and if you have a blog I shall pop over to yours real soon. x

pics from shoebox swap

As promised here are the pictures of the projects I got to make at the swap.

This was Sharons project. You will know Sharon from the Stampin Boutique.
I think the is super cute and love the effect of the piercing around the images.
Thanks Sharon for hosting the swap.
I had a great time and cant wait to do it again. x

This was little Sues card.
I love pink and green together and really enjoyed making this as it was the first card of this type I have made. Cheers Sue x

This Puffy box is so so cute. (sorry for the bad picture)
Denise showed us how to do this and I love it. This is one thing I will make again for sure.
It has so so many uses and once you know how, it is very easy to make. Thanks Denise x

This project beat me! Pat made a lovely card using this beautiful image.
We had to paint it and that was what I could not get the hang of. I learnt that I am not a painter.
Not wanting to be totally beat I re stamped the image and am saving it for a later date.
Thanks Pat x

These three beauties are the projects designed by the very kind Judy (little Jude).
I think she was trying to challenge us with 3 makes.
I really enjoyed making these, the stamps from Unity where a joy to work with.
Thanks for the Easter Bunny Judy x

I had a wonderful time Thanks Girls x x x

Love Sweet Love

Tomorrow my Harley is off to a birthday party.
This is not any party but the party of Elise.
Elise has been in love with Harley since day one at school (six months now). She says she is going to marry him. Harley like all men has been a bit slow in accepting this but is now coming round to the idea.
I think it is so sweet.
Anyway I made a quick card tonight for the birthday girl.

I am off to a shoe box swap tomorrow. I will be back to share the projects with you.
Hope you all have a great weekend. x
