Spring Wreath Happy Birthday

Good morning
I have been waiting to show you this card that I made for a friend but didn't want her to see it before her birthday!   Love all of the stamp sets that have the wreaths in them which are currently available, but I particularly like this one.
Thank you for stopping by today.
Take care

Today I am sharing some swaps that I recently made. They are very similiar to ones that I have made previously and are made using the new square pillow box thinlet.  I have just turned down one of the tops to create the pocket, instead of folding under to form a complete box.  I put a little gift inside for the ladies which I hope they liked.

As always you will find some glitter somewhere on my projects!  This time I have punched a flower out of the velum and glittered the centre and the tip of the flower
Thank you for stopping by today

Get well wishes

Good morning,
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.  To  be honest, I didn't even notice the weather, all I did know was that it wasn't raining!
I spent a fabulous day on Saturday  visiting my daughter and my awesome grandchildren.  As usual we all cried when we had to come home. Next visit will be Christmas - it will soon be here!!
Yesterday I spent the day with other lovely crafting ladies which is my favourite thing to do!!

Anyway, I thought I would share this very quick Get Well Wishes card to a very old friend of mine who has recently undergone surgery.  It is just to let her know I am thinking about her x
I hope you all have a great week  and thank you so much for stopping by.

Take care

Inky playday makes

Good morning,
Our good friend Sarn wanted us to have a play with canvas and ink, so here are my efforts.
At first I was really very apprehensive about putting the ink down on the canvas but once I started I just went for it!
I wasn't very pleased with my first attempt because it needs something else doing to it but I just cannot see what?  Any suggestions?

You can just about make out the leavy stencil on it. I think that if I had maybe used darker ink this may have "finished it off"?
I was a lot happier with this inky sample.   

Not sure that this is really "my thing", I don't seem to have the "knack" or "imagination" to create something I would be totally happy with?  I am no good at random stuff !!

Any comments or suggestions would be truly appreciated!!

Have a good day and thank you for stopping by

Take care

Empty handed - nooooo

Good morning
I met up with my playmates last weekend and had a great time getting inky!
It was decided that this playday was going to be exactly that, a playday, so no swaps or M&T's were needed.  However, I cannot go anywhere empty handed so made these little sweet treat bags with a little bar of choc inside.  Just cannot go empty handed, is that a flaw ?
Hope you all have a lovely day xx

Take care
