grapes anyone?

Hiya everyone
Confessions time.  I've been keeping a little secret :)

Yip, I'm going to be showcasing Julia's new releases twice per month
.....and it just so happens there is one tonight

This is The Grape and Hair, you'll find her and the other NEWLY RELEASED images
 over at the Esty shop.
I'm not so sure grapes could take over as the new hair decorations but there is something quirky that I like about this one :)

April Elf

Just thought I'd pop in with a quick card made just for fun.
It's not often I have time to play just for the sake of it but since I won three gorgeous images in the Julia Spiri on Facebook challenge it would be rude not to use them :)

Time now to get on with my DT work plus a couple of orders I need to get out this week.

All things bright and beautiful

This gorgeous girl should have been on my blog last week but  as I said in an earlier post my Dad hasn't been too well and I totally missed my posting day over on Art by MiRan
 Better late than never though right :)

I fell in love with this one as soon as Miran showed it to us DT girls and I knew I was going to go bold and bright with my colours for her too

everyone loves a cuppa

Hi everyone
Sorry I've been AWOL once again. 
 My Dad has been very unwell and spent ten days in hospital so I have been busy visiting and of course helping Mum out too.  I've hardly had time to turn around never mind catch up with my blog but he seems to have turned the corner so at last I can have some 'me time' and get the pens out

I totally cased one of my own cards with this one,  I loved how it turned out so used exactly the same layout as before but made an easel card and added a few more dies, plus it's easier to put together when you don't have a whole lot of time.  Talk about cheating lol

So. there you have it.  A perfect way to get a commission out of the way quickly.  I must admit this is the first time I have did this but with the amount of time it saved me I think I may just do it again
Thanks for stopping by

Is it me or is Blogger is getting even more temperamental than usual lately?  Since I got the new lappy and updated to windows 10 it won't upload any photos using IE at all.  Then when you start again it's in your picassa but not on your post
I'm sick of it now :(

Anyway I came across a fabulous new digi company on FB the other day and of course I had to buy and image or two.  Well it's rude not too isn't it?

It just so happened I'd been asked for a football themed card too so the timing was perfect,
