Afternoon all,

Another day of crafting!

This is a card for Tracy who had a nasty accident over the weekend. I think there may be two little nurses looking after your every need now that you are home, lets hope so! Get well soon Tracy.

This is one of the beautiful stamps designed by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie Stamps over on the Funky Kits site. (Link below) I have teamed it with Deja Views papers "Blue Raspberry". Me thinks, I might have to play some more with this stamp!!

Today I also received a lovely parcel from Beckie @ RP, many thanks. I love it, the "Pop Star" papers are so applicable to me with two boys, can't wait to play!

Oh, I've been playing with my blog again much time on my hands?
Or should I be doing something more constructive, yer, probably, but where would be the fun in that?
In honour......I know it is a little late...of the new Gorjuss stamps over on the Funky Kits site...I've added this background, sweet isn't it. Looking forwards to playing with the new stamps, I love this range.

Another card here for a friend in the village, with a picture of her partners dog. I've kept with the beach theme and colours and again used my template from The Cutting cafe for the greeting.

Over the years I've done my fair share of sympathy cards. Calla lilies being the favourite embellishment in various forms. So what do you make of this one? To much, with bling? Just got sick of lilies and wanted a change.

I first saw this cuttlebug embossing plate when Tracy Dowie did a demonstration at Papercraft's Boutique in Elgin...Tracy thanks for the idea.

The stamped image is from The Cutting Cafe and thanks to Sharon my teamie on UKS for that link. I can see I will be using that site again.

And for today's card, gets out trumpet! (Only kidding)

This stamp is part of a Rusty Pickle packet that I picked up on my day scrapping with Mr Pickle last year in Edinburgh, thanks to Becky, and I have been waiting for a wee while to use it, I thought it goes well with the Creative Imaginations "Love to Shop" papers.

As you can guess Julie enjoys shopping, or that was my brief!

So how was your Valentine's day folk?
Red roses, chocolates...Champagne?
Or did your partner forget?
My hubby told me we weren't bothering this year then surprised me with flowers, chocs and my favourite brandy. So what is he after?!*
On that note I thought I would show you this years Valentine cards.
I have been busy of late making new samples for Papercraft's Boutique in Elgin...if you want to see them I'm afraid you'll have to visit the store, I know you want to!!

Ok who pinched January? And now it is February....who ordered snow?Actually here we have a light "icing sugar" dusting which is pretty but I believe the rest of the country seems to have come off worse.

This picture is for my "teamies" on UKS. My youngest had a birthday party to go to today...he made his own card , don't know whether the little girl will appreciate a Pirate card when she is having a princess party but the thought is there!

As to gifts well I usually do a bigger picture than this one...too much brandy last night...wasn't quite seeing straight this morning!

The apron is usually given with a cook book/cake making kit/fancy icing pack etc... Just a little different from picking something up at the shops and she won't get two!
