Happy Birthday Mum and Guy

Hi all,well pleased to say the weather is settling back down again here and we have had some sun! Also my cold on the way out at last.
Anyway onto my cards and the first one is for my mum and I followed a tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers

Used First Edition 'daydream' papers. Letters from stash. Card is a combo of papermania and stampin up. Memory box die 'flutter'. Tim Holtz 'tattered florals' die and brad.

And I actually made a card using my Brother Scan n Cut. Stamped the dinosaurs on the background and then everything else done on scan n cut.
At moment though I am waiting for a spare blade to arrive as it seems I have a faulty one so not been using the machine as much as I would have liked. The other blade is fine and cuts through thick materials really well.
So hope you are all well in blogland and I shall be visiting you soon x

Collection of cards

Just some of the cards that I made recently using limited craft items when unable to get in the craft room. Then I added embellishments and stamped greetings once back in craft room.

Used 'swirls' embossing folder, stampin up 'flower shop' stamp set and matching die. Stamped greeting is from the stampin up set ' four you'.

Don't worry re the wonky gems, sorted them out but forgot to re photo

Finding it hard to get motivated to go regularly in the craft room at the moment but the latest cold I have is on the way out so hopefully normal service will resume shortly. I have this week off so looking forward to some crafting.

Flood photos and Scan n Cut

Hi all,yet another horrible day here in Devon, unable to go outside with the children today as so wet and windy!
Fingers crossed not too much damage done today down the seafront. We now have lost part of the roof of the little shed so with the damage done to our big shed and broken fence panels it's becoming expensive :-(
Hope you are all safe and dry and not suffering damage to your properties.
These pictures are from last wednesday when we had the bad storm and it has been the worst I have ever seen here in 25 hrs, just glad we no longer live by the seafront.

My heart goes out to those people who have been flooded out.
I do have some good news though that my special delivery turned up on Monday and I am now the proud owner of a Scan n Cut :-)

so been having a play and getting used to the machine, first impressions are good.x

Back in the land of crafting :-)

Hi all, well am finally back and installed in my craft room again. Bet you haven't even missed me lol.
Had to give up my craft room and some of the house whilst middle son moved in for a while until he could move into his new place and as much as I loved having him, its nice to have my craft room back.
And I celebrated by moving it around again!

Loving the new layout but know its going to be a pain when guests visit but maybe I can dissuade them lol.
Managed to make a few cards with limited resources which have recently finished so will add soon but I did attend another felt workshop and this is what I made

The one on the left I made at the workshop and the other one I made when I got home complete with scarf.
I did find my crafting mojo went into hiding and I have read a lot of books instead but now I am back and can't wait to catch up with your blogs.
Am home today as waiting for a extra special delivery which my husband has brought me for our wedding anniversary. Will add pics next time and would love to hear if you have got one too.
Right off to wait for the courier,catch you soon xx
