Sending love and sympathy

Warm day , sun shining. 
I am thankful for all blessings that I have .
Hello to all visitors , thank you for calling in . 

Today I am sharing a sympathy card .This would have to be the plainest one I have made in recent times. 

 Basic Black card base.   Paper from Black and White Recollections pack .  Sentiment from SU set , Love and Sympathy   .  stamped on Very Vanilla card and punched with SU circle punch and layered onto larger circle . Pearls from my stash to embellish .

PS;   How many of you have done this ? I finished this post and sat looking at the photo , thinking that the paper layer seemed crooked . So I picked card up and noticed that in the top left corner and side still had the double sided tape cover on and was not adhered to card base ...just a senior moment .


That's better . 

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Cute smile

Sunshine today so smiles abound .
Hello you all . Thank you for calling in and welcome to my room .

A super Spring day which did wonders for flagging spirits .DH has been suffering cabin fever for weeks now,  after what seemed to be a prolonged Winter . We managed a gopher ride this morning  right down to Linear Park to Hackney Bridge and back . We had breakfast at a little bakery and then had lunch there on the way back . No photos today because I forgot to recharge my camera batteries .All the tracks were busy with walkers , joggers and cyclists . There were seniors , singles and groups , children and dogs every where . All in all , a perfect day out .

Now a whimsical image for my card share today .

This awesome flower is one of three from a set , Funny Flowers , from Peachy  Keen Stamps
I coloured with various copics. I stamped the image twice, cut out both but  cutting out only the leaves from the second image to 3D them .The die for smile word is from MFT. The card is a pre cut one from my stash . The flower is adhered to a white die cut circle with SU snail then onto black die cut circle .

Most smiles are started by another smile.

           Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

Hold onto your hat!

Hello there .So happy that you called in . Welcome to my room where I am sharing this birthday card  made for a male relative . Hope you like it . 

I went through all my vehicle images , sporty and fishing images and thought that over the years I had probably sent them all on different cards to this male .I definitely had to think of some thing else. 

My great fall back is a visit to pinterest where I found this image . I used a SU stamp and punch set for the sentiment and even an embellishment in form of an airballoon . I used a small circle punch and Very Vanilla card to hold some bling adhering to front with foam dots . Brown card base , Very Vanilla mattes and ribbon from my stash . 

I think Frank will like this departure from the usual manly images he gets.

Cold  and wet again,  here,   today . Such a pain after one sunny top Spring day .

           Let us never know what old age is.
 Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years. 


Hooray , tomorrow is Friday .

      Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
