This was a great challenge thank you Clare.....made me get out a very lovely old stamp from many years ago...I had great fun with the glas effect gel on the berries!!! I enjoyed doing it so much I had another go
this is using a combination of stamps and inks and trying out the Tim Holtz pine cone die...I ended up on youtube watching the demo...ah a cocktail stick and a glue gun thats the answer...anyway they are getting better the more I make.Mum goes into hospital Monday so fingers crossed. Hope you are all having a great weekend looking forward to seeing all your creations.....

Mums Birthday

well it was my dear old Mums 94th birthday yesterday....we had her out to lunch at a nice pub down by the river and the sun even shone!....Lizzie and Chris brought along Isabella and Caitlyn  and we had a really lovely time, Mum was so tired when we got her home she barely made her piece of cake and cuppa before falling off to sleep....bless.
I had fun making her card with my new spellbinder blossom dies.......Lizzie is going to e mail me some photos of the occasion as in all our organizing my lovely Richard forgot his camera!......
and here we all are !!!! and here are some of her cards and flowers.....
