great sunshine, well in Kendal anyway.
I have not been here for a day or two, lots of colouring been done
but no card making, to nice to stay in during the day, and OH wanted
to get all the pots sorted in the back yard, and there are loads of them !!
Today I have 2 cards for you, I have used the same image for  both, but
different colours and design.
For this one I have used 
The Wedding Couple, image from

I have also used the
Cherished Moments Corner 4 times to make a square frame and
embossed with lemon Cosmic shimmer .

The background was cut using my Cameo.

Today I have made an Easter Egg Card, using
the free download image from  and free downloaded papers

Good Morning Everyone
As usual it is very wet here in Kendal, but, it is lovely to see after all the
blazing hot sun shine we had in Mexico,  I know I must be crazy but we ( well me lol)  
are not use to nearly 3 weeks of 46C ++. temperatures, as gorgeous as it was,
It is so nice to feel the rain. 
Now for some very exciting news I am now a Design Team Member of
At the beginning of March MITZI SATO WIUFF contacted me and asked
if I would like to be on her Design Team, well what was not to like I didn't even
have to think about it as I absolutely love Mitzi's images, which I have using
for the past few years.
As I was away when the 1st Challenge went live I could not take part, so I will be
joining the other fabulously talented DT members for the 2nd Challenge which starts on the
21st of April
But there is time to join in the 1st Challenge and the theme is
Anything Goes here is the link
My card today was made for my Son's Birthday
I have used Aurora Wings image
I would also like to say Hello to my new followers and to thank everyone
for taking time to leave some amazing comments left on my blog over the last year.
Bye for now

Good Morning Folks
This will definitely be my last post until I return from my holidays
So I hope you all stay fit and well while I am away,
I will try to take a look at what you are all up to when I can get
an Internet signal.
The card I have today is one of those cards that we never want to make
With Sympathy, this was for my very dear friends
Dave & Sheenagh Hulin Dave's Father  past away  last week.

Good Afternoon Everyone
I hope you are all fit and well on this gorgeous sunny
This could be my last blog before I go off to Mexico on my holidays,
we will be away nearly 3 weeks, never been away that long before
I hope I will not get bored, what with all the sun sea and sand and of course
the odd couple of drinks and loads to eat. I have set myself the target of
swimming for 1 hour every day as I have lost nearly 2 stones over the last 6 months and
don't intend to put the weight back on, but, I will see how I  manage.
Now onto my creation for today.
This is a large Shadow Box that will hang on one of the
bedroom walls, which we have just painted in green.
This happens to be the room my Son and Daughter in Law use when they come and
house sit while we are away, but, when Melissa saw the subject she said  she does not
want it hung up until I come back as she found it scary,  what do you think?
The image is called
SANTA MUERTE Spanish for
Mitzi Sato-Wiuff images and I loved colouring it.
You can buy this and many more  of her images from
I also used the amazing new
Available from
The Shadow Box was cut using my Cameo.
Thank you all so much for visiting and leaving me a comment.
