A freebie from A Day for Daisies

called Blooming Cherry Branch. These flowers really remind me of Spring and look so beautiful, except when you have to sweep them all up.   I have practiced with my Promarker Bender to get the shading effect on the blossom, and am quite pleased with the result.

Attitude or what?

I love this image from Mo Manning.  She is called Mariko is mad and really reminds me of me when I was little.  Kev says she still reminds him of me?????

Lazy Afternoon

I bought some cute squares from Lili of the Valley last year, and loved them so much I ended up buying this stamp anyway.  I have made this card using just scraps left over from other projects.

Something different

City Crafter challenge have really challenged me this week.  The challenge was to download an image from The Graphics Fairy and to use it on a creation.  I don't usually do vintage, however as my Dad has always been a bird lover (the feathered varity), I thought immediately of a Fathers Day card for him.  I hope you like my card.

Craft Candy

 at The Tiny Blue Butterfly
American Crafts Ribbon Candy

I have now found my  wire to connect my camera to my laptop, so I can start uploading my cards again - as soon as I have enough time.  I am a very busy Grandma now and love to spend as much time as I can with my gorgeous little Jamie. 

Its been a busy couple of weeks cardmaking, with several family birthdays and a few orders too, most I have had to send without taking photos, but I'm getting  back into a routine slowly.
