Girls Birthday Card

Good Evening Fellow Crafters

I hope you have all had a lovely day, i can't say i have had the greatest as since Adam got up from his afternoon nap all he has done is cried (just not enough sleep) so when i finally got him settled tonight i popped of to my wee craft cupboard for some peace and quiet, not that i got much as John decided to run in and out to see what i was doing ( KIDS lol) I must say i am really enjoying being back crafting again.

I planned on doing this image for another card for Sinead's 16th but i have changed my mind and decided on another image for her but i'm sure this card will come in handy for one of her friends as they all turn 16 this year, so here it is......

I am entering this into the fowllowing challenges.....

Anniversary card

Good Morning All

What a beautiful morning it is today I just hope it lasts !! Adam is running about the garden in just his vest he will not let me get him dressed I think the heat is getting to him. Today is my beautiful sisters 21st ( makes me feel old ) Happy Birthday Jenny, I am hoping the cards I made get there on time !

Twice in 24 hours I have blogged its a miricale lol, I have made this card for my hubby it is our anniversary (and my birthday) on Saturday, my daughter helped me pick the image last night I got this off the paper shelter, I can't link this up at the minute I am using my iPad (can't find my laptop Sinead must have it) I'm not sure how to link up on this as soon as I get back on my laptop I will edit this, so have rustled this up out of my stash.........

Well that's me for today think I might just sit in the garden and chill lol, hope you all have a nice day,
Love and Hugs

21st cards x

Good afternoon all,

I hope everyone is well, I have not had much use out my crafting cupboard yet as I still have lack of crafting things and it is hard to make cards out of the stash I have lol, but last night I spent 4 and 1/2 hours in it crafting with the music on it was bliss.

It is my baby sisters 21st tomorrow and I have managed to rustle up these two cards the 1st one I had planned on doing black and pink but as I was making the I realised I didn't have any black card ( my son used the last of it for his pirate ship project at school ) so this is what I have come up with......

They have just been posted so fingers crossed they arrive for tomorrow, and fingers crossed she likes them.

That's me off to do the house work,
Love and hugs

I finally have somewhere to craft !!

Good evening everyone ,

Finally 10 month after moving into a bigger house I have somewhere to craft !!! My darling hubby moved everything out of a big cupboard we have and put it all up our loft so I can use the cupboard as a wee craft room and when I say wee I mean wee lol, here's a picture.......

I still have to get some shelves put up and get all my crafting stuff back from my mum and dad's house in Edinburgh but I do have the bare essentials and my darling mum was kind enough to send me through some papers just now.

So I should be blogging more often now fingers crossed, off to my crafting cupboard to see if I can put something together, love and hugs nikki xx

I'm finally back with a card !!!

Good Morning All

Yes i am finally back !! I can't believe it has been over a year since i last posted a card, wow where does the time go ?
I hope you are all well, i am such a tired mummy at the moment as my 7 month old son is teething but i finally got a full night sleep last night and he is sleeping at the moment so i thought i would come and post the card i made on Sunday night, i only have limited stuff at the minute as all my crafting stuff is up my mum and dad's loft as when i had Adam i had to pack it all up to make room for my new addition but i have now moved into a bigger house and i have a huge kitchen with a huge kitchen table to craft at so hopefully i can find some room for all my stuff and get it all back so i can be crafting more often.
So without further ado here is my card......

Thank you for popping by love and hugs Nikki xxxx
