Puppy Post


Gee i can't believe it's September already and H has started his last year at primary school - although it's a bit tough doing the commute back to where we used to live, as we couldn't get him into a school near our new house !! In August we went to Norway Fjords, here are a couple of photo's :

Today's card has been made for Maureen's Rudolph Day's Challenge, which starts today and finishes 30th September and all you have to do is make a Xmas card - the image : LOTV - 'Puppy Post', (that i bought at a 2nd Hand sale in a set - 'Set 4 - Merry Christmas'), the shape : Go Kreate - 'Frilly #4', the papers are : Stampin' Up - 'Candy Cane Lane', the snowflake die at the top : Tutti Designs - 'Ice Crystal Arch', and the snowflake : Memory Box - 'New Castle Snowflake', are also covered in : Glamour Dust, the ribbon from Matalan (clothes and household shop in UK).

Santa Club


Today Harrison finishes school until 4th September, we have alot planned for him including a tennis camp, sleepovers and training with the Harlequins Rugby Team.

Since my last post, i have moved house and i thought you would like to see my new craft room (this was taken, after we had first moved in, so a bit messy) :

Today is the start of Maureen's Rudolph Day's Challenge, where you have to make a Christmas card from today until the 31st and it's a great way to get ahead.

The image is Penny Black - 'Santa Club / 1230K / 1998' and it's been coloured in with Copics, the papers are : Bo Bunny - 'Silver And Gold Collection', the sentiment is : LOTV, the brad was originally silver and i covered it in gold embossing powder and heat it.

Thanks for looking and for any comments, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Shutting Down This Blog


Can someone tell me how to shut down this blog please, as i'm so upset and devastated at the moment, that i don't want to continue card making - it was something i enjoyed doing and kept me going especially with my Rheumatoid Arthritis,

Thanks for all your help and support, Luv Sam x
