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,


  1. Fabulous boxes Marjorie, love the cuttlebug die corners.
