Wednesday Already

Good Morning everyone,
Just a quick up date this morning, my Mum is feeling a lot happier in herself at the moment as they have changed her medication which seems to be working better...fingers crossed. She still needs to go for more tests though, which will be in a couple of weeks hopefully.   Thank you for all the thoughtful messages you have left me regarding my Mum, she was quiet overwhelmed with all the good wishes, you are all such wonderful people Mwhah!!
Also a big hello to my new followers.
I haven't had much time for crafting this last couple of weeks so I don't have a card to share today, but thought you might like to see the boxes I made to go with the previous cards I made. I love the one I made for Grace, the cotton lace around the box really set it off, Phylis was quiet pleased with it anyway.  Amy's box is a little plain and simple, but I quiet like it.

What would we do without our die cutting machines, my trusty steed is a cuttlebug lol!!  The dies I have used for the corners are also cuttle bug and the swirl is a Marianne die, butterfly is Martha Stewart, and the gorgeous flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Hope you all have a fabulous week, in this lovely warm sunshine.  It is another glorious day here in Yorkshire...Thank you for stopping by, will try and get round to visit soon...
Big hugs,

Nevaeh - Saturated Canary

Hi Everyone, Sorry I haven't been around for a while but my mum has not been too well.  Last week Mum ended up in hospital for a couple of nights, while they did tests..still don't know what is really up, so they are treating her for Angina, we just have to wait and see how she is on the medication they have given her.  She is up and down at the moment.  Deb and I witnessed an horrific accident on the way to pick my mum up from the hospital.  Deb hopefully may have saved the lady involved from having more serious injuries than what she could have had..all in all we didn't have a very good week.
Any way I have managed to make another card for Amy..Amy's Mum wanted a special card making too lol!!  I have chosen Nevaeh by Krista Smith from Saturated Canary, I think I'm hooked on these gorgeous images lol! Mind you Kat did say once you have done one, you have to do them all lol!! and she's right lol!!  Photo's are pants again but the second one is more true as her hair is darker than on the first one.  I have coloured her with prisma pencils, distressed all the papers in brown fluid chalk by colorbox, also distressed all the embellishments butterfly etc.

Card Recipe
Papers: Memory Box Brioche
Lace & Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon and Pearls & Diamond Stickles my stash
Letters and Numbers: Tim Holtz Carnivale
Butterfly: Martha Stewart
Flourish: Marianne and Tilda


I have been trying to put this post on for a couple of days, everything is upside down at the moment.  I am at the doctors with mum again this morning, she is still not feeling very well, it may be the tablets.  Will try and come and say hello when I get a chance..
Biggest of Hugs and thank you for stopping by:)

Yo Yo

Good morning everyone,
I have been so busy this week, so I am a little late in posting. A big welcome to my lovely new followers, and thank you to everyone for leaving me such lovely comments on my Pretty Bouquet card..I also came in the top three for LOTV...still walking on air lol!!
My card today is called Yo Yo from the lovely Krista Smith. This is my first Krista image, isn't she just adorable, I love her hair and those lovely earrings, had a pair just like this in the late 60's!!  I love all the little details Krista has put in like rings on her fingers and toes, and I think young Amy will love her too!  I have coloured her with my Prisma Pencils and added a little Glamour dust around her petticoat at the bottom of her skirt.  Also added Stickles star dust to all the flowers.
I've made another easel card as Wild Orchids challenge this week is fancy folds, as this is the only fancy fold I can do at the moment, thought I would make this for their challenge.
