"One from the Bit Box"

Hello follow bloggers, friends and visitors welcome to my Blog.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my recent cards, I really appreciate each and every one.
Weather here in the North East of Scotland is beautiful, sunny if a tad!! cold.  The hills are covered thick with Snow, cars have a crusty frost on them that is gradually melting in the sunshine.
Nothing much planned here today, I have a few things to catch up on then I hope to "play".  
When I was clearing up some old crafty stuff the other week I found something I had bought at a Hobbycraft Show.  I think it was last October, it could have been the March one!!!  Brusho Paints/inks, I watched a demonstration, thought they were great.  Took them home, looked at them, forgot what was said and done at the Show,  Put them in a cupboard to deal with at a later date ...... I think it is now time to deal with them don`t you???
I did have time to play during the week.  I decided to start with my "Bit Box" there were a few bits in there that I could see would make some cards for general use.
Here is the first one I did:-

Just Bits of card and a small scrap of that beautiful Card from a "Works Pad"
I have kept the card flat for posting, have not added any sentiment till I know what it will be need for.
Simple and it used up bits I would normally just throw away.  Well I would normally pop them in a bag for the School.  They still get plenty so no worries that they are loosing out.
That`s it for today, thank you for calling by I appreciate it you taking time to do that
Have a wonderful weekend.
Till next time

Very simple card

Hello Blog friends and followers, hope you are all well.  If you have arrived here because you pressed a wrong button, welcome!!!  Please stay a while and have a look, I love having visitors.

Nothing much happening here at the moment.  When the boys went back to school John said "this school lark fairly interferes with our playtime"

Today`s card is simple beyond words.  I was working on a project and just happened to look up to see the makings of a card staring back at me.

I had cut a heart out of a piece of white card which ended up lying on an odd scrap of spotty card.
White base card approx 4x6
White card with the negative heart shape.  
The spotty Anna Marie was a scrap bit that luckily fitted behind my heart.  
Organza Ribbon from my Ribbon Box
Very old StaminUp Stamp for the greeting.
Card made  ...  simple!!!

Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that you take time to call by.
Till next time

Hello Blog friends and followers welcome to my Blog.
Today was our Family Celebration, we have so many special birthdays throughout this year.  Hazel and I decided that we would have one big Celebration to get everyone together.  Unfortunately like all these things no matter how hard you try there are always some who have other things on.  Gillian (Hazel`s daughter and Hannah Fiona`s daughter) were away on a Training Course and did not manage.
A few of you mentioned I was not on the photos of our few days away with Blog firiends.  I was taking the photos I posted, anyway here I am with my sisters:- 

From left to right:-
Me, Hazel, Jackie and Fiona

That`s it for today.
 I just thought I would let the people who mentioned I was missing, see a photo of me.
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate you calling by
Till next time
