"For a Special Friend"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.   Welcome to my little corner of Blogland great to have you call by.  I have to thank you all for your continued support during the months past and months to come.   I know some of you manage to keep regular Posts going during the summer, me.... well I was stating to struggle a bit.  It will be better for me just to pop something on when I can rather than worry about creating something to Post every day, I do hope you all understand.   I am trying to visit as many of you as I can each day.  If I miss you for a few days I have not deserted you, I will be back.
Here is a card I made for a friend of mine.  She is a bit down at the moment, I hope when it pops through her letter box it will cheer her up.

Base card 5 x 5
Pink Card Stock
Paper from Crafters Comapnion Bo Bunny selection
Rose made using a Tim Holtz Flower Die
Leaves from Sue Wilson`s Rose Die Set
Phil Martyn Sentiment stamp on a hand made banner

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time, have a wonderful weekend

"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any passers by.  Welcome to my little corner of Blogland which I have to say I have not been visiting myself as much lately.  I am stepping back a little, we have lots on and things to do especially now the weather is better.   I hope you are all well and enjoying the wonderful weather we have been having.  All very busy here at the Ranch.  John and I have done lots in the garden, cleared out the Shed (Garden Tool Store).  Cleared out the Summerhouse (boys garden toys plus +++)   The boys are now 10 & 8 why were we keeping all these Plastic Garden things???  All gone to a local "Pop up Charity Shop" who were very grateful and I know they have sold most them.  Still lots to do which is on going and will continue later today!!!!
Oldie for Friday is just a bit of fun started by Erika over at:-  anything Crafty you have done in the past is wanted.  Its all fun and a good way to show things you have done in the past.
Here is mine for today:-

Base card looks approx 5 x 7

SB Paisley EBF for the background
A Sue Wilson Edge Die down the side of the paper
Paper was definitely out of a Magazine
Rose made using a SB Classic Circle Die  I used the the Circle Die to show ladies at a class that you  did not need any Fancy Dies to make Roses, however the Blossom Five Die I use now makes much nicer Roses
Foliage a mixture of Dies
Ribbon and Pearls from my stash

That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for calling by and for your continued support, I really appreciate it
Till next time

"Oragami Box & Tag"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and enjoying the spring weather.  We have a VERY thick frost this morning making it look like we have had a dusting of snow on the newly ploughed field.
Sorry I have been missing, life in general is very busy, in a good way I might add. 
I love my Blog but as you can imagine family and home life comes first.  I have lost my MOJO which does not help, if you find it could you please send it home!!!
Got a request for an Origami Box and Tag so here it is.

White and Gold was what was asked for.  I really should have embossed the Gold card it looks rather stark. Think because it was gold I was not tuned in properly.  I am not a lover of Gold, I don`t even wear Gold Jewellery very often.
Anyway it is done and customer delighted, that`s all that really matters.
I have another BIG distraction at the moment as well.  Can`t help watching these little darlings playing in the field.

They are so darned cute, they run back and forth along the garden fence chasing each other for ages.  Next when you look out they are all zonked lying in the sun.

That`s it from me for today
Thank you for sticking with me and calling in, I really appreciate that
Till next time
