Big Sentiment. Small Cake.

Morning.

I suppose I could have gone the other way and that I could have made the cake big and the sentiment small.... but it worked for me this way.

This is a work card I made recently. It's always difficult to make cards for folks you don't really know!

A Cup of Love

Good morning.

An anniversary card to share today - one I made for friends' who have their anniversary in August.  Last year I sent them a card and I completely forgot to write in it so am hoping I remembered to do so this year.....

I used my very favourite DSP which was a wrench but it needs to be used, it can't be saved forever!

Hello.

A quick card this evening.

Dabbing is Life

Morning!

Can you believe we're halfway through September already? Our local shop has started to display Christmas treats and I saw mince pies in the supermarket the other day (but wasn't allowed to buy them!)

This is one of the birthday cards I made for Andy. This one is from Scott who will dab at every opportunity so when I saw this Little Miss Muffet image I thought it would be perfect.

Relaxing Sundays

Morning!

There's something lovely about getting up before everyone else and just chilling with a cuppa before the day starts.

So with that in mind, cards with a theme today... all cards with featuring ladies relaxing at a spa. 

This first one was made for someone going to start her own business.  The little towl is a Jolees Boutique sticker which must have been in my stash for 100 years!

First Day

Hello.

Well that's it, the silence is golden. The children are back at school. Not that they're that noisy tbh but there is a certain silence descends when they go to school for the day, it's a pity I have to go to work and I can't make the most of the quiet...

This is the card I made for Scott starting S1. I've used a Polkadoodles image and kept the card fairly simple. I've simply used the school colours to back it.

Clever Clogs

Good morning.

So we're almost at the end of the school holidays, only today and tomorrow to go and they're back to school.

Tuesday was a big day in our house as it was results day.  Poor Craig had to wait until the postman arrived with the precious envelope just before 2pm to find out how he'd done in his National 5's.

He got.....

5 A's
2 C's

So proud!!

Morning

Happy Thursday. Nearly the end of another week. Nearly the end of the summer holidays. I'd say nearly the end of the summer but I think that was a few months ago now.
