This is the Mother's day mini book gift that my mum received, it was from The Sharon Ann little ones collection, gatefold album from Deja views. I thought it was appropriate with two boys.

Better late than never, eh Pam!
It was my pals birthday last week and I finally got around to catching up with her on Sunday.. Why when I make cards for other folk do I always end up being "Last minute Annie" or worse late with sending my own? Very bad indeed!
Can you see the theme and trend over the last few cards, I love my cupcakes especially edible ones. At this point I'd like to thank the Aberdeen girls from the crop on Saturday for not eating all the muffins I took (being so good and not eating yummies!) I have had two already today so I'm doing a very good job at increasing my waist band, add to that the Thornton's choc's I got for Mother's day...I'm so going to need more exercise!!
Why is it that everything that is yummy is bad for you and everything yucky good?!

Morning...bright and breezy on a Sunday morning, I'll pay for it later!
To all you mums out there:
"Happy Mother's Day"!!!
This was a card I made with the same papers and cupcakes below, but a slightly different style, again using my new SU stamps. It was for Beckie Dreyer to say thank you very much for my Rusty Pickle goodies.....which were very yummy!

Here is a card that I made on Saturday whilst at the crop in Elgin. It was for a thank you to Dawn on UKS for the beautiful stamps she sent me. I used Heidi Grace papers and the cupcake set from the Cutting Cafe, the word stamp is SU.

Yesterday it was my Uncle's birthday and he loves golf.
I got these stamps from Karen's, Paper Craft Boutique, at the weekend as I thought they would work well for men's cards. (Golf, fishing, DIY and beer what more could you need?)

I was right to be excited about our girlie craft day on Saturday, boy did I have a good time. Good company, good food, crafting the day away....heaven!
Thanks Sharon and Fiona for organising the event, looks like it might have to be a regular event now. Must ask the girls if I can post a couple of their pics on here of the house...in my dreams, (the house) it was huge.

On to today...it's my eldest baby's 10th birthday today, so where has that time gone?!
Isn't it funny what kids are like. He got a super new bike off us with the weather hopefully starting to improve and some Battle brawlers from his brother, the latest crazy at school amongst other things. Guess what he was more interested in...the little balls of plastic!
Still the weather has been pants today so maybe he'll get out on his bike tomorrow.
So girls I finally got around to making his birthday card and for those of you who know him, know he's rugby daft. It had to be a card on that theme in the team colours (above post).
I love this SN stamp, it gets plenty of use in this house!

Today I've mostly been cooking and baking muffins but found sometime this morning for another candle. This one was for a young couple who's Wedding we went to last month...they're off to a sunnier climate so it was a little going away gift. I've kept it simple with it being for a non-crafter and a wedding.

But never mind today I'm excited about tomorrow!!!

The girls from Fraserburgh are in town for a crafting weekend. Yippee! I'm joining them for the day tomorrow... for lots of crafting, chatting, eating and a few games to play...sounds like a fun weekend is planned. I'm having a day off.

Now my brother is an architect by trade and is the one with all the artistic talent in the family, as far as I am concerned. He is going to make me a new title for this blog....which is very kind of him.
He asked me to go and get a few pictures of the village for him to work with and these are a couple of ideas.....
Upon viewing them he liked them but wants me to capture the "essence of the village" and to be "artistic darling"!!!!!! Jeepers!
I'm obviously going to need some time to think........but any ideas would be gratefully received....I think I need a trip to Findhorn Foundation to get in touch with my artistic bint!!
More of the same today....personalised cards. Not a lot else to say!!! Happy crafting.

"White Rabbits"!
Ooooo the sun is out, the sky is blue, there's not a cloud to spoil the view.....March is here and spring, shhh is on it's way. My favourite time of year, it's getting warmer, all the bulbs in the garden are starting to come out and the nights are getting lighter, yippee.

Looking at some of my fellow crafter's blogs, quite often it is mentioned what book is being read. I used to read loads but often collapse in front of the TV late at night rather than getting my nose in a book. However I have just finished a book that was recommended to me by one of the ladies who have opened a new shop in the village called "Seahorse". We'd got chatting and she said you must read this if you get chance, "Angels in my Hair" by Lorna Byrne. What a beautiful uplifting book...wouldn't it be nice to think that we all have a guardian angel watching over us, protecting us?
Whether you believe or not Lorna is a remarkable lady, I couldn't put the book down.
