What another post so soon!

Good morning bloggers,
Very cold outside, but sunny.
My Brother and Brother-in-law were around this morning to fix a leak on my back room roof. Hopefully they have sealed it off. Wait for it to dry, then will paint it.

Got a few photos of cards I've done recently, my son helped me with the inserting of the photos as google was not letting me put them on before. So hopefully I can blog more.

This was a box card made for my Grandson.




















This box card was made up from Karen Burnistons' dies of the Cat, Dog and of course foxy loxxy. The box was made from a Tattered lace die I've had forever lol. Sponged some distress inks on card then embossed with a star folder.  The hats and balloons are all Karen Burniston.                                                                                                                      

Tim Holtz Cats.

This card I made for my neighbour, who was 80  He loves cats. Embossed background. Coloured cats in comic and Sue Wilson Happy birthday die. Hope you like my two cards.

Hope you all have good day. Big Hugs, will be back soon Jo xxx

Again a bad blogger.

Good afternoon bloggers.

I cannot apologise enough. My life is so busy these days. I thought when you retired, it would be easier.  I was helping my eldest daughter Jo-Anne pack up her house as she has long last exchanged and completed Friday 31st August 2018. It's been a long road for Jojo and hopefully this is a good beginning for her.

My brother-in-law had to go to hospital regarding his lung as they have found a spot on it. - Well he had to have half of his lung taken away as they found a small cancerous growth. He has now recovered really well and hopefully cancer free. He really has a guardian angel looking after him!

I have been making cards for all the family, but as usual forget to post and take pictures.

My Mum was 90 in February 2018 went to a 5 star Hotel in Spain - had a glorious time. Did make her a beautiful card, but again didnt take a photo of it on its own, there is one or  two but with the other cards.. My brother was 65 in April, made him this card.


Front of Card. These stamps I have had for ages.

This is a Karen  Burniston Pop Up Card

Well bloggers, I shall end here for today. Do have a lovely day and enjoy. Bye for now. Jo. God Bless. xxx
Will put some more cards on tomorrow.

My poor little Possil

Good Morning all,

My poor little Westee Possil had to go to the Vets this morning. They think she has a torn ligament in her back leg. They are X raying  her now and hopefully it s not too bad £400.00 or operation £1500.00. Hope its the £400.00 because we are pensioners £1,500.00 is a lot of money to find.

Well I do have a couple of cards to show:- this one I made for my brother in law his birthday was New years eve.
Made with Craftstash dies.

This other one I made for one of Peter's friend for his 60th. Its using the Tonic large letters which I find useful..Also used the Karen Burniston Top hat and moustache. Celebrate I think is a MFT die.























Well I do hope you are all warm and tucked up wherever you are as its pretty cold in London and Scotland.
Keep well and safe.
God Bless 
Big Hugs Jo.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Morning all,

I am again late in posting. I cannot promise to post every day or even month  as I have a lot going on this year. On Wednesday is my daughter Jo-Annes birthday, made her a card which I can show as she doesn't blogg.
Its made up of Sue Wilson dies. I do like Sues dies they are so versatile.

Hope she likes it. Her favourite colour is green.
















I did make some Christmas cards, a few I will show you. I think I made a total of 65 for friends and family and I was on time cannot believe it I had my mind set and they were done!

Here is a few to look at. These were for the friends and neighbours. Different dies.
This was a Sue Wilson die from 2016

This was a die from Sizzix from 2016

This was a die and embossing folder from Craftstash

This also was a die and embossing folder from Craftstash.

These dies are from Sue Wilson collection 2017 my favourite this was for family and really good friends as you can see a lot of work went into this.
This was a die from Sue Wilson 2017 and her  flowers from 2016

I have a lot of other cards to show which I did make last year for peoples birthdays etc.

Well Bloggers, I do hope you like some of my creations. I will try and post as soon as I can. Mums 90 next month and I really should be thinking what I'm going to do for a card. I did make her an Album when she was 80 but don't think she really was bothered. It took me months! So a nice card will have to be done and I will not feel so hurt is she discards it. lol.

Well if any of my friends do visit my blogg. I wish you all health and happiness for 2018.

Bye for now.
Jo. xxx

MY GRANDSON IS 1 ON WEDNESDAY!

Good morning Bloggers,

Would you believe it my darling little grandson is going to be 1 on Wednesday, how time has flown by and he  is a gorgeous soul. So happy and clever.

This is a card I made for him.
Front of the card It lights up  when you press the  dragons tum
Inside of the card.
The Stamps used are Mama Elephant for the bear and the Dragon and the Big Elephant is a Chloe Stamp. I have used copies, still trying to blend, but Rome wasn't built in a day lol.
The big letters J One and Birthday are Concord & 9th dies so that you can use an outer and inner colour, The paper in the inside of the card was from a bundle of baby papers had long time ago - I think from Tattered Lace.

Well I do hope you like this.

Here are another two cards I found that I did recently but never blogged. One was for my Granddaughter passing her exams to go to University, and the other is  Peters niece's daughter for her 21st  Bothe using Sue Wilson Dies. The Owl is an old Go-Kreate Die I positively love the little animals are from Taylor Expression I've had for yonks.
























Well I hope you like them. Bye for now. Have a lovely day, looks like rain again. Where has our summer gone.

Big hugs Jo.

My Niece's Birthday card.

Hi bloggers,

Yes it's me, absent again. I have returned to work for 2 days a week. I sometimes do a week here and there because the girl who took my place when I retired 2 years ago only went and got pregnant ! So I'm helping my old boss out until 1st October and hopefully she comes back after a year off.  I cannot do it any more, it takes 1-1/-2 hours to get to Putney I would drive but it's the parking and so it's not worth my while. Cannot wait, I miss my card making and my Garden. The grandson Gabriel who's coming up to 16 now stays two days a week because his mum has to work.

Well I made this card during the days I wasn't working. I did another but forgot to photo it.
This one is made with Chloe stamps and dies. I do like these stamps and dies, but you have to very gentle peeling them off the plastic sheets there on. They could easily tear which I know about. Lol.
Well here's the card hope you like it


I've got one of these super apple mouse, and for the life of me still cannot use it properly ! Im trying to pick another photo and its not letting me do it, It was one I sent to my mum for Mothers day. Once i get the hang of it I will post because its pink and lovely.

Bye for now and have a lovely day. Work for me tomorrow boo hoo.
