Week 4 - Frame

I chose the theme this week and I gave the girls the option of using any type of frame, window frame, door frame etc. on their card.

I've used the 'door frame' of the guard house.


Family Card Challenge - Week 3

The theme chosen by my sister in law this week was: choose the colour scheme in your lounge and make an appreciation card for someone who’s done something nice for you.

Guess what colour my lounge is?!!  I was really stuck with finding the right words to use on this card and in the end went with a simple 'with love'.

Family Card Challenge 2013 - Week 2 - Three Times a Lady

The theme for this week was the Lionel Richie song, Three Times a Lady.

I recently did some family tree research and while doing so I came across an article on stitched postcards which inspired me to try something different with this card.    The skirt is made from lace and puffed up with net underneath, so it stands out from the card.

Free digital stamp from here.


Family Card Challenge 2013 - Week 1 - Love

Well, the Family card challenge for 2013 has begun again and here's my first card of the year.  The theme - Love.

It's a very different card from my usual style but one filled with lots of meaning...the red berries remind me of my daughter because they are made with her red nail varnish, lol!  The bird reminds me of my son because he loves nature.  The brick wall of my husband, strong and sturdy, the stability in my life.  Three kisses, one for each of them and 1 red heart - mine, in which they all have a place.

Crochet Update

You may remember my post from a year ago about learning to crochet.  Well, I thought you may want to see what I have been up to...

I've been covering coat hangers!

The rose and leaf pattern is from the Attic 24 blog.   I'm still perfecting them, they are great fun to make.

Another work in progress!

Thanks for coming to visit!
