More Cards and a Bit of Journalling

Hi Everyone

I hope all you mums out there had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday. I met up with my mum , daughter, brother and families for brunch which was lovely. After that a visit to the Mother in laws where I made her a new hanging basket of silk flowers and the rest of the day making some custom retirement cards.

I can share the cards with you because they are all for blokes in work who won't even know I have a blog.

The script for this one was a man who loves to sail. Bit obvious eh!

This one was a little more difficult as it was astronomy and try as I might I struggled with inspiration 
As for the third one I can't believe I haven't taken a photo. What an idiot I am?

Along with the cards I have also been indulging in my new love of Journalling and joined the Mission Inspiration group on Facebook. This is my first mission

I am actually attending one of Mike Deakins workshops on Saturday and am really looking forward to it

Oh and I mustn't forget I have made three design team pieces for Personal Impressions but you will have to wait to see them when they are published in the next few weeks. Check out their blog if you haven't already there is some fabulous makes, videos and inspiration on there. 

Anyway that's it from me for now. I'll be back soon

Take care

The Final Touches

Hi Everyone,

Today we are putting the final touches to my craft area so as soon as we are done I will show you some pics. The hope is I will have a card making area and an altered art area to work in as I do need more work space. I am praying everything still fits on the shelves we are putting up but you know what us crafters are like.......... WE JUST NEVER HAVE ENOUGH!

I am going to share a couple of samples I made for Personal Impressions recently that were shown on Hochanda when Linda was demonstrating. I can't describe how excited I was for Linda and seeing my makes on TV. I am truly blessed to design for PI as I have been taken out of my comfort zone by not having a choice of products. I look forward to receiving my box of goodies so I can push myself a little further.

All the pictures here are using products available at Personal Impressions

This is my gorgeous grandchildren, daughter and son in law.
The speech bubbles are stamped with stamps from PI and the heart is stenciled with Tim Holtz stencil and distress ink

This little drinking jar has sparkly peel off letters and gold bling

This wedding card again uses lovely sparkly peel off letters along with Sweet Dixie Dies, white card and gold organza ribbon

Thanks for dropping by today

I'll be back soon (I promise!)

Love Gill xx
