I Love You.....This Much...

Good Morning everyone,  Monday's do come around so quickly.... Today Meljen designs are sponsoring us over at 'Make it Monday'.   Melissa the store owner designs the most beautiful digis and stamps, her images are always so lovely to use, she has designs for all different occasions and they are such a pleasure to colour... Thank you Melissa for supplying us with such lovely images to play with.  Do pop over and take a look at her shop which you can find here.  This card is for my very special Mumsy ...

I have used white bazzill card and the design papers are from my scrapbox, I printed them out from a card making magazine... last year I think!.. they were a free download and perfect for my card.  The red glittery card is core'dinations 'Glitter Silk cardstock' it really is gilttery afraid my photo doesn't show it up to well though.  I used Die-namics flower trio for the little flowers in pink with a stick on pearl.  The corners are a Corner Die Set by Whimsey Stamps also with a stick on pearl.  The Ribbon is from Bunny Zoes. I stamped the lovely image on to a Spellbinders die called 'Lacey Ovals'.. I use this a lot!  The image is from Meljen Designs and it's called 'I love you...This Much' and I have coloured it with my Prisma Pencils.. I have inked everything with colourbox chalk inks.

Bugaboo Cowboy

Good morning everyone, hope everyone has survived the snow lol!!  Candice was so disappointed when the snow didn't stop her from going to school lol!!!  but they have forecast more snow for tonight (Sunday) as I am Scheduling this post for early morning I won't know till I wake up lol!! Well it's Make it Monday time and this week we are sponsored by Bugaboo.. and I was sent this lovely image to play with.

I have so much enjoyed making this card for Liam (my grandson).. It's been a while since I have really felt like doing any crafting, it's been such an effort... but this card came together so beautifully and took my mind to another place lol!!  The image of this little cowboy is just sooooo cute lol!!

I used scraps out of my scrap box as I love that dotty paper and don't have anymore, must buy another pad as it's so nice for boys cards.  I didn't have enough for the bottom so I used a coordinating sheet out of the pad... I have used two lots of design papers one from 'Wellington' and the other is called 'Oxford'. I inked all the papers, cards and dies with colorbox chalk ink.  I love the circle die it's called 'Picot Edge Circles' by spellbinders and I have put red gem stones in each of the circles. The stars are are a Die-manics die called 'stacking stars' I got it from 'Dies to Die for' - BEWARE when you go on this site, it takes all your money lol!!!

Good morning everyone...
 Our visit to Germany was just fabulous, Liam is such a little character and he is just unbelievable with his languages!!  He really does put us to shame as his English is so good, I can't say very much at all in German!  I am hoping they will all be here for his birthday at the end of March, he's told his mum and dad that's what he wants for his birthday to come to gran and granddads.... bless him!  Candice had a lovely time too! we went to the Christmas markets, the weather was so mild, it was a pleasure to walk around.  Nicole introduced me to hot chocolate and baileys...mmmmm... I don't normally drink, but had about 3 or maybe 4 of these lovelies over the course of the evening!  Needles to say I was a little merry lol!

I am sorry that I haven't been around too much over the last month or so,  I'm a little out of sorts at the moment, as my Mum is going to have to have a triple bypass operation as her little heart isn't in very good shape. We still have some more tests to do, but they are thinking around the end of January, early February.
Mum really wants to have this done, as she says she doesn't want to sit around waiting for a heart attack to happen.... so my Mum being my Mum is going ahead with it..

This is me and my Mumsy, she looks so well and I just want her to stay like this forever!!

Sorry about the long post today girls, it's all or nothing with me hey!!... Have a fabulous week.. 
Take care,
Love and Hugs,
