A Birthday Treat

Hi Everyone,

I have had a lovely day today. It is my Birthday and I have been out for lunch with my lovely family.

The day started with a visit from my lovely crafty friend Lisa from Gracie's Creations. She has just started her Blog so pop over and see her lovely work. My gift from Lisa was two sets of Popcorn stamps so will be having a play with them soon.

I have also managed a little crafting today and have been making something special for Easter

I call these my little Chick-a-Dee's. I drew out the pattern and started cutting from felt. I loved the first one so much I just kept going. You will notice the legs got a little longer every time so need to perfect that a bit. I think they will be lovely teamed up with a chocolate eggs for Easter so will need to get some more made.

Paul and I went to a 50th Wedding Anniversary last night and had a great evening even though we were deafened by a full Scottish bagpipe band immediately behind us at the beginning of the night. Here is the card I made for the happy couple

This card is  20cm x 20cm and I have just used card from my stock and a little embossing. This is my favourite size for a card.

I am going to make some cards tonight using the fabulous free stamps and paper in this months Papercraft Essentials so keep your eye here for the finished results.

I can't believe that the day has gone so quickly, I am off work all week so hope the week does not fly by like today. It is a decorating and clear out week so I am hoping there will be a little time for crafting.

Have a lovely week everyone and I will be back soon
