Double Pocket Envelope Card

Hi all,

OMG what has happened to the gorgeous weather we had over the the weekend, I am sitting here with my heating on!!!.

As you know we were allowed out of hosptial on Sat to come home and finish the meds off, well we were back up their at 11.30pm on Monday night after Abbie's line failed and was causing her a lot of pain, so we had to go and get a new one put in. Unfortunately all did not go well and 5 hours and 3 tries later we finally came home with a cannula in the back of her hand as her little veins just wouldn't take a new line. Hopefully this will last until we finish the drugs but we are not holding out much hope as cannulas dont' last as long as the lines and my poor little mite just doesn't have very good veins at all, so we could well be in for another visit before the end of the week.

Anyway I have one of my class creations to show you today (another idea found on Pinterest) a Double Pocket Card Holder. The pockets themselves are very easy to make with a few scores and folds using  12 x 12 paper and then obviously decorate them up as you require.

The papers I used are Trimcraft First Edition Floral Pavillion & New Bloom pads and a couple of cute little Fizzy Moon Bears (just the perfect size for these). A bit of ribbon and some pretty WOC flowers to finish.

Hospital update

Hi all,

Just popping on for a quick catch up with you all, we have been in hospital for the last week and I have had no wifi connection at all.

Abbie is doing really well on her anitbiotics and seems to have much more energy- so much so that we have been allowed home with me finishing off the drugs myself.

Thought I'd share you a couple of pics with you.

Firstly this is the fabby 1D card her class mates sent her :-

Inside with little pictures drawn by all her friends

While we were in she was also asked if she could be photoed receiving a cheque that the playroom on the childrens ward had been awarded.

And finally this is a pic of all the drugs we were sent home with to finish the course off lol!!!!

Off to have a hop round your blogs now to check out what I have missed out on.

Hope you are all having a fabby bank holiday weekend

Cut out Flap Card

Hi all,

Another class card to show you today,  I don't have any new creations so good job I have a few of these to show you lol!!!  
We are not having too good of a time here at the moment, Abigail didn't have a very good hospital check up last week, and was found to have lost weight again and her lung function has dropped right down to just 56%. Her consultant has decided she needs a 2 week course of IV antibiotics so we are gearing up and packing ready for a little visit to hospital from Monday. Making sure we have lots of things to keep her entertained as we have to have our own little 
room and be kept away from others due to risk of cross infection.  

Anyway these cute little cards have the cut out in the flap for the little image and then open up and for you to add your little message. The girls really enjoyed making these.

The images are from LOTV and the paper are First Edition - Floral Pavillion

I will pop instructions on when I can get round to typing them up

Double pop up slider

Hi all,

I have found a few pictures of class cards that I have made previously with my ladies, so while I'm not particularly doing much crafting at the moment, thought I might as well show these to you.

This one is a Double Pop Up Slider, when you pull the top tab up, the little mini tab comes up too.

We gave the cards a pretty feminine feel and used some of the older LOTV cute squares for the images.

If you would like instructions on how to make these, let me know and I will try and do a little tutorial for you.

I have a few more cards to show, so will schedule them over the next week or so

Special Delivery

Hi all,

I am here this evening with my last post as a guest designer over on the Stamp Basket Blog.

I promised Janet that one of my creations would be a christmas card and today I have an adorable card using the lovely Bella with Sledge from Wild Rose Studio. 

I decided to make a pretty girly christmas card (which will be put by for madam I think) and teamed the image with some fabby Nitwit papers, added a lovely Memory Box die, some gorgeous lace & vintage ribbon and a few pearls which I coloured with my promarkers to match to finish.

The items that are available from The Stamp Basket are -

I hope you have enjoyed my creations over the last 6 weeks using the fabulous Stamp Basket goodies.

To celebrate the release LCI are having a month long challenge with the theme

Baby Baby

Now their isn't an actual hop (not if you dont want to) but over the course of the month each DT & GDT will be choosing 2 commentors each to win one of the new release images. So if you do want to pop over to each members blog and leave a comment you will be in with lots of chances of winning!!

So here is my card, I was given Baby Billies Pram to work with and - well it is just adorable!!

I chose to make a girl card, as Oliver's teacher's partner - who used to be Abbies teacher before she went on maternity leave have just had a gorgeous baby girl - Ava Lilly. So this card is for them off the kids.

I coloured the image with promarkers and used some beautiful papers from LOTV, added a few WOC flowers and lush polka dot organza ribbon.
