Hi everyone,
I did think summer was on its way, but here in South Yorkshire its really windy and cold.  Having a look at all the beautiful cards on the lotv challenge blog cheered me up lol! I have made a card from one of the lotv die cuts and coloured the pot and tree to match the rest of the image.  I just love these cute squares.  My colouring isn't that brilliant, although I am learning slowly.  I am waiting for Bev & Jacqui to have a colouring class here in Yorkshire fingers crossed lol!! I cut out a flower and swirls with a marianne die, then blitzed it all with glamour dust.

Card Recipe
LOTV Cute Square
Papers: Papermania Red Hot (I think its called)
Tools: Martha Steward heart punch, spellbinders, Marianne swirl & flower
Embellishments: stash, hobby house

Hope you like it, I am going to enter it for the lotv challenge Here comes summer

Hi Everyone,
Yesterday was my mums birthday.  She is such a special mum, she has brought up a large family and has had her ups and downs but nothing is too much trouble for her.  At 84 years old she is still independent, and can put me to shame sometimes ha! ha!
I had to work yesterday, but we went shopping in the afternoon.  In the evening we had a barbecue and Deborah, Candice and Cassy (our little Jack Russel) joined us.  Candice my granddaughter made her gran gran a piggy cake (I will try and post a photo).  Candice also made a birthday card (we have a budding blogger and card maker on the horizen lol!)
I have made a card for mum with the wild orchid challenge sketch - MUMS ARE SPECIAL, hope you like it!!  I am going to enter this for my very first challenge, and I can't think of a better first challenge, as I just love the wild orchid website, they provide us with the most beautiful things to play with lol!!

Monday 9th May

Hello Everyone,
I've just been on a really great blog and had so much fun reading it.  I had a good laugh at some things as it is me too a T! It is called shabby blogs, have a read.  Have been on so many blogs today and have got no cards made, so much for entering all these challenges!!  I really must get my act together and enter one. 
This week is going to be quiet hectic as its a big birthday on Friday for me, and my son and family are coming for the week-end from Germany. I do miss them.  My daughter and granddaughter live close to me and I am thankful for every moment we spend together. 
My blog is up and running thanks to my daughter Deborah, I would never have been able to figure out all those codes for certain things I have put on LOL.
A really nice lady called Janie visited me and gave me insperation to start showing some of my cards.  I was so excited when I saw I had a follower other than my daughter and son ha! ha!
I am going to enter a challenge this week and hope to have a card made soon!
