Card Feature Wednesday 1

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Part of the switching up the blog, I have decided to feature the cards I make on a Wednesday. (Today it's a bit late though!) That way I know when they can be posted and if anyone would like (or not like) to see them, they know when they will be posted. 

This card was for our niece's birthday recently. I love the Clearly Besotted Fabulous Fuchsias stamp set and thought I would try it out on this card. I stamped the leaves on the background first and then struggled a little to fit the fuchsias on but it worked. 

I really like the colours of the patterned paper and the ink and think they go well together.

Paper - American Crafts May Berry  | Stamps - Clearly Besotted Fabulous Fuchsias | Ink - Memento Rose Bud and Versacolor Night Sky  | Ribbon - American Crafts.

The next card I made at the end of last year but never showed. It was for a little girl and so decided to use the Clearly Besotted Ballerina Jasmine stamp. To colour it in I used some chalk pencils. I'm not the best at colouring it in but I think it was OK.

Paper - Forever Friends | Stamps - Clearly Besotted Ballerina Jasmine and Amy R  It's Your  Birthday | Chalk Pencils | Ribbon - Hobbycraft | Pearl - Hobbycraft.

I still have a few cards that I have made in the last few months and have not shown so will show them in the next few weeks. See you soon. 

Visiting London

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

On Sunday we decided to go to London for the day. We had won some free train tickets and needed to use them before the end of the month so we left Amelia with her auntie and made our way to London.

First stop was to St. James park and Buckingham Palace. It was busier than normal as there was a 10k run on and so there was a lot of runners and supporters.

We then saw the Horse Guards Parade.

Hollie had her photo taken with a horse guard!

We then walked up the road to Trafalgar square and sat and watched the world go by. Love people watching. Fascinating. 

Moving on we went to the tower of London and saw tower bridge.

We made a special trip to Hamleys toy shop. Had a good look around and saw lots of demonstrations of toys. 

Hollie was fascinated by the phone box made of Lego!

Hollie got her picture taken with  r2d2 and c3po from Star Wars although she had no idea who they were!

Before catching the train home we saw the London eye. Would have loved to have gone on it but hopefully next time.

We had a great time in London and was great to spend some quality time with Hollie. 

Hope you are having a great week. See you soon. 

Changing things up.

Sunday, May 04, 2014

I just wanted let you know that I am doing some changes to my blog as I really want to get back into blogging and have been at a standstill with the blog.

I had some good news a few weeks ago that I don't have to have an operation that I thought I would have to have so I feel it's time to change things up a bit. I have tended to write blog posts about the cards I make and now and again about home decor or organising, well hopefully from now on, the blog posts could be about any of the things that I love to write about like crafting, organising, home decor, inspiration and general life blog posts.

 So I hope that you will stick with me while I find my feet again and I looking forward to giving my blog a bit more focus.

 Hope that you are having a good weekend and see you soon.
