But how fun is whipper snipping! I just went and got ours fixed as hubby wouldn't (think he was dreading the cost of it) but I got it fixed for free lol....Then just went and did some snippering and had a ball! Never done it before was always too scared but now I think it beats the fun on a ride on mower!
Totally random post lol.....I'm in such a good mood today! Will attempt more at my mums mothers day card later hopefully.
Gosh what a week it's been in this household :) Today we are off to visit friends of our's little girl who has had diabeties since she was 3 and she's now 6. She's getting her insulin pump put in today so I quickly made this card...nothing too fancy but I think she'll love it.
The little girl image is a freebie from Karens Doodles. I think she's a cute little girl!
We had MIL's Birthday yesterday and I handed her a canvas I'd done of her dog and she loved it! Then hubby handed her the dutch card and we'd sneakily placed the ring we'd bought her on the front on tulip leaf. She started off all cherpy and singing the verse on the front, then started shaking when she spotted the ring and looked at us in shock, then my hubby said 'that's our present from us' and she was really shaking by now lol....she then carefully put the ring in her lap and opened the rest of the card, squealed when she seen the dutch girl inside and started CRYING when she noticed the happy birthday I'd done in dutch!!!! She then hugged my hubby sobbing hehehe, before coming to hug me and whisper 'thank you so much for your effort on my card, it's perfect and I can't believe you made it'!
Then my FIL told me how amazed he was that I would take the time to search the net for dutch words lol.....
SO, the card was a HUGE hit! :) And she never took that ring off all night lol.....
I finally made my 1st Joy Fold card! Boy it was a challenge and has taken me probably 4 hours all up because I umm'ed and ahhh'ed about every little thing lol....
But I am so happy with it. It's for my Mother In-law who is Dutch. The verse on the front is a birthday song they sing in Holland and inside the card it translates to Happy Birthday. She's 60 this week so I think she will LOVE the card!
Also just an update, we just received word that the tumor my sister had removed was cancerous but at this stage the cancer hasn't spread! I'm a mess and trying to calm down from all the stress but it's not happening lol.....need chocolate! And I'm joining weight watchers on wednesday and I'm so excited about this! You girls have really cheered me up and I look forward to making life long friends on here.
I did use Random.Org but it wont let me paste the results for some reason. The winner is comment Number 6!!!!! Which is Lisa! Please email me your address and I will pop it in the post for you :)
The candy has quite a bit in it lol.....I'm not going to detail everything I added but as you can see, there is quite a bit of ribbons, some bling (lol), a few buttons, flowers, tags and 2 stamped Magnolia images.
You girls have made my day! I am so very sorry I never got back to posting the blog candy picture...I'm having such a rough time lately. Let me fill you in...I joined the gym - loved it but then started feeling blue again and having panic attacks...I finally worked out why I'm blue yesterday while looking at cute knickers lol.....I am totally hating my body right now, the way I look, feel....so I quit the gym and whilst mowing yesterday just got so overwhelmed...I just really want to join again at weight watchers. I did it 6years ago and also 10years ago and loved it so I know I can do it, the first step is the hardest they say :(
Plus with sick grandparents and we just found out my sister has cancer! No wonder I'm not coping huh. Find out hopefully today if it's spread.
Anywho enough about my problems - vent/sook over :)
A big thank you to Sammi for starting the followers coming
I'm going to add to the candy so I'll go get cracking on that now! I'm so overwhelmed about the nice comments - thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Nothing to show here :( been running around like mad looking after family! Am totally and utterly exhausted but did get some lace and more ribbons so I'm looking forward to doing something crafty tomorrow lol.....
It's friday here! YAY! And seeing as I'm still hooked on the Hula Leila (lol) I thought I'd do a congratulations card with a TWIST for my BBF who just got promoted. I'm so thrilled with my new found mojo and creative streak that's come to me out of NOWHERE! Hubby can't believe the change....well..I won't argue that one! hehe.
So here is my card...Congrat Hula Ations :)
That is actually a purple button and I've wanted to use it for so long. It's such an unusual shape and colour and I've finally had my card to use it :)
With Mothers Day just around the corner I thought I'd get a head start on Mothers Day cards that need to be made. Over at lily-boo too's challenge this month is Mothers Day. Even though they prefer to see lily-boo images I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to use my NEW Magnolia stamp.....
I'm soooo pleased at how this card has turned out. Am thinking it's quite possibly my best card yet!
Another day.....more so another EXHAUSTING day in this household! I made this card for a friend's little girl who just turned 5. I love the piggy.....he's from lily-boo's boutique and I just love him.
I had this image all coloured up and cut out and just waiting to be used so I decided to use him instead of anything else.
I had a little package arrive in the mail today!!!! My Magnolia stamp arrived....WOOOHOOO!!!! I'm super excited and can't wait to use her. I'm still waiting on my copics to arrive from the USA so hopefully not too much longer :(
I'm on struggle street today :( my boy hasn't been well and friday was diagnosed with bronchili (sp?)phenmonia!!!! He's fine during the day but boy oh boy nights and early after noons are a NIGHTMARE!!! Hence the lack of sleep (very lack of sleep!) and lots of tears and hair pulling from me :(
Have been busying myself (as much as I can) with scrapbooking instead of cards. It's helping take my mind of things.....
will post some cards I've done though (done as in done awhile ago!)
