I expressed an interest at having a go at waterfall cards to Karen at Papercraft's Boutique in Elgin to which she said she had just the thing. Here's my attempt.

Instructions can be found at

Give it a go too.

I've got a question for all you crafter's out there....are you bad at sending your own handmade cards?

It was my parents Wedding Anniversary last week and that's me just made a card, how bad is that? Still I enjoyed doing something a bit different and having just come back from touring around Europe...I thought I'd give it a European theme.

Now having spent all day yesterday crafting do you think it would be cheeky to finish work I started?

Better try and get some jobs done first.....and catch up with my boys who are having a whale of a time with the new Lego Batman game on the Wii as we speak.

Whey hey what a great day I've had, first a crop at Fraserburgh and then a crafting group in Elgin. My idea of heaven!

Here is the LO that I have done for the week 4 September challenge on UKS, set by Ruby snippers. The challenge was to use some scraps, a pic of someone sleeping, a heart and stamped image. I have to admit to using big scraps but only because I had recently used this paper to make some cards and this was what I had left over. As for the wee man, he'd had a very tiring day over new year, and although you can see his gun in is holster ready for an imminent attack, tiredness got to him first and he slept where he collapsed! Great challenge, I really enjoyed this one.

One of my team mates on UKS is hosting a cup card swap for I thought why not join in. I don't usually get involved in swaps just because I don't always have the time or you could say I'm lazy on an evening, whatever you prefer. Anyway I've now spoilt the surprise for all in my group by showing what I've done. I have sent my orange muffin recipe, as they seem to be a favourite when made. I was going to do them on bright orange papers, as I thought no one else would use ORANGE! But then re thought and have gone Christmassie instead, after all it is a Christmas cupcake swap. I do hope the other girls in my group like them and can't wait to see what I'll get back soon.

Another day in the world of a crafter and more cards. 1 for a lady who loves to shop and another for a keen skier.

I've actually started a couple of LO's for this week and this months challenges on UKS so I will keep you updated. If I succeed that will be 3 LO's this year, a record!!

Afternoon all

Over the years I've had a few strange requests for cards and this one is no exception. The request was for a pork chop and crumpet to feature on the card and a little tartan as it was going south. The card doubling up for a birthday and wedding anniversary as both on the same day, which explains the brackets, as under the table is a birthday greeting one side and a wedding anniversary the other. This also follows inside the card with a verse either side for each occasion. My customer was "well" pleased with the card and has said there will be lots of explaining to do when the recipient gets it!!! Mind boggles!

So what have I been up to of late....well last weekend we had a trip to Devon for our nieces not much crafting done there!

Busy just now organising a couple of Christmas card classes at Papercrafts Boutique in Elgin, 20th September @ 1 and 3 p.m.

The above cards are just a few of recent bespoke requests for you to see.

Happy crafting all!!
