Happy Birthday Tess.

Happy Sunday afternoon all.

I have a card with a matching bag for you today.  The bag is a pre-existing gift bag. (I have added the flowers)

The card was made in a rush.. My daughter has gone off to Tess's birthday party this afternoon. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the card. When I saw my daughter had already wrapped the present and put it in the gift bag. I thought .... Looks like I will be making a red card.

Card made using the following:

Paper:            Very Vanilla Stampin Up.   Red Cardstock. Stampin Up.
Sentiment        From my stash.
Flowers          Kaisercraft
Bling               Local craft store.
Ribbon            From my stash

I have to mention that the flowers were included in my order (as a surprise) that I received from Bizzy Becs,    I love little surprises.

Have a great afternoon.   

Hubby is presently preparing tonight's roast.  Mmmmmm ..... Looking forward to that.

Lavender and Lace

Hi Everyone,
What a great day to be crafting and blogging. The rain has been coming down all day and heavy rain expected overnight.  We really need the rain. A few more of these days will be fantastic.

Please note that I have used some Lavender from our garden. I have to mention this, as we don't get many things right in the garden, but we are very proud of our lavender.  I love looking at blogs with nice gardens. Have you seen   The House in the roses and The painted garden  I would love gardens like these.!!
I have made a Card and Chocolate box cover for a very good friend of mine. It is Janine's birthday. I have known Janine for many years.  We do not catch up nearly enough. .

The images are sourced from the wonderful Marie's Freebies blog. Pop on over to the blog there are some really beautiful images.

I will enter tthe card and chocolate cover in the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room                                              (Lavendar and Lace)
Our Vintage Affair                                                     (Decorate a bar of chocolate)
The Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog                      (Make it Vintage)

The Inspiration photo on the Shabby Tea Room blog that inspired me. It's just lovely isn't it.

 The card was made with the following products.

Paper:   Striped Paper is called Perfectly Purple Pinstripes Cynthea Sandoval, Cardstock is from my stash.
Lace:     Kaisercraft

Have a fantastic weekend!!!

WOYWW 10/11/10

Hi Everyone,

I am joining WOYWW  week.  If you haven't seen this blog before, make sure you pop on over and have a look around.

Well it's been a couple of Wednesday's since I have joined this blog party.   I have actually been cleaning out my craft room over the last two weeks.  I am now able to sit at the table without having anything under the table at my feet,  I am showing the create sign , as I have had part of this sign on the wall, and part fallen down on the floor.  I might feel a bit more creative now my sign is altogether and not scattered all over the place.  

Have a nice Wednesday,
