These are two pots I have decorated up very simply using some new My Minds Eye papers that we have just had in, some Papermania element stickers and a bit of ribbon. All the holes around the tops were cut out and had the eyelets put in them with the cropodile. The small one is an old gravy granuals tub and the larger one is something I found lying around the shop that used to have pencils in it.
This is a little memo holder that sticks onto the fridge by the aid of a magnet on the back. It is made from the cover of a Papermania Chipboard Album and again some fab My Minds Eye papers. I got the idea from one of the Docrafts Creativity mags. I used the big bite to do this one.
Hope you like.
The image is a Racheal Ann Miller, Papermania Spring Burst papers, Making Memories paper flowers with some fab Papermania glittery brads in the centre, oval sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

This picture is Abbie doing her Physio on her dad. As this is something she has had from when she was born it is a normal thing to Abbie and quite often she will do physio on her dolls or on one of us. In this pic daddy (rich) was trying to have a relax watching the footie and Abbie thought he was a prime candidate for physio. The blanket that Rich has got over him is Abbie's Physio Blanket it is one we have used right from the start and she associates this blanket with her physio, if we dare to try and use another one she goes mad. So there you have it a little insite into my life.
Also I will be having some blog candy up for grabs soon, just in the process of sorting it out. I have some fab news to share with you and am having some candy to celebrate. Keep your eyes peeled

There is no point giving a list of items used as I have listed them above in my explaination of the card. Hope you like and thanks for looking.
I have had to do a couple of personal cards today for my nephew who's birthday is tomorrow. I was totally unsure what to do as I find male cards really hard. Luckily for me the postie dropped off some PB images that I had brought off Ebay and there was a couple of suitable designs in there. I am hoping to be able to do some challenges this week as the last 2 weeks have been chaos and with me being ill as well I missed most of them. So am I hoping to be able to take part in most of them this week. So I have decided to enter this card in the Penny Black challenge this week which is 'In the Frame' you have to include a frame somewhere on your card. So I have mounted my image straight onto the card, then cut out a frame and mounted on top of the image with foam pads to give it some depth. I also decided to make this card not too fussy and went for just 2 patterned papers and a couple of brads. I think sometimes with male cards its best to do something quite plain and simple.
This fab surfer dude is from Penny Black coloured in with whispers pens , I have no idea of the name as I dont own the stamp. The papers are Papermania for him collection, DCWV cardstock, Papermania sentiment sticker & Dovecraft brads.

Springy card, made very simply using a square card blank & the papers and decoupage from the Forever Friends Kit. Ribbon bow and sentiment added at bottom
Gatefold card, again using the Forever Friends Decoupage kit and an A5 card Blank with a little ribbon bow on corner of image.
Inside of Gatefold card.
Trifold card front view, I have tried to make the card up as a story. On this first page the bear is being given a box from her sweetheart .
On this second page the bear is seen opeing the box and hearts are flying out.
On the last page the bear is seen holding one of the hearts.
As I made the layouts quite simple I added extra interest on this card by, pricking holes all around each page with a pokey tool and adding faux stitching with a gel pen.
Hope you liked seeing these next lot of samples.

Again I have tried to make more than just cards, and also done a different style of card for variation. We have some gorgeous PM pearlesent card blanks on offer on the day for only 99p per pack, so I have used these to show them off.
This card was made with the PM card blank, Laura Ashley die cut decoupage set, papers & brads, All put together with some simple matting and layering and finished with a gorgeous piece of ribbon.
This card was again made with the Laura Ashley decoupage set & papers. I folded back the front of the card on itself to give a zig zag shape, again was put together with some simple matting and layering.
This is actually a wallet, I cut the front of the card in half and then with the fold at the top, stuck the piece back on as the bottom along 3 of the edges. I left the top edge open to slide things in. The decoupage flower is only stuck on at the bottom and the top flap folds in behind the flower head. Finished of with a brad.
This little tag was made using the Big Shot and 3 dies flower, Circle & scalloped circle (something else I am gonna be demoing, we will be doing a half price deal on sizzix dies ). I again used the Laura Ashley papers and brads and the PM cardstock.
Last but not least is a little gift box I have made, so simply buy using one of the Sq card blanks cut in half, scored, folded and stuck together. Finished off with a Laura Ashley decoupage flower on the top and ribbon round the edges of the lid.
Hope you have liked seeing a different style of things from me and also something other than just cards. Will be back soon with some Forever Friends sneeky peeps!!!
