We cant all be stars but we can all twinkle

Wanted to share another of my lovely wooden plaques, which I think is very apt in many ways!!
I was sent this one by my lovely cousin Natalie, who, when we were visiting another cousin who also had one of these, happened to say to me that she had one too.  I pestered her and pleaded with her to get me one!  She could no longer get hold of them so gave me hers!  Love & bless her xxxxx  Thanks Natalie xx

Monochrome Birthday card

Hi
What has happened to the gorgeous sunshine!  I checked the weather forecast, big mistake!  I decided it was shaping up to be a nice sunny day and put my washing out.   An hour later the heavens opened, not seen this much rain in ages.  As a consequence, I got my washing in some 4 hours later and it was wetter than it was when I put it out!!  Note to self, don't believe the weather forecast in future!
Anyway, today I am sharing a card I made for a lovely lady last week.  I am very much a fan of daisy like flowers and I made these using the Succulents Framelits Dies (retiring at the end of this month) and the Pretty Pines Thinlets.  There is,of course, glimmer added.  Hope my friend liked her card.

Thank you for stopping by today

Falling in Love Twist & pop card

Hi
Absolutely love this paper and I also love the "twist & pop" cards that are all the rage at the moment.
Just had to make this one with my crafting ladies as they love bling as much as I do!
There are many videos on You Tube now on how to make these lovely shaped cards.

Wooden Plaque

Hi
Thought I would share with you today this lovely wooden plaque that a very dear friend made for me using her brilliant woodburning skills.  She knew that I loved birds and flowers so based the design on just that.  She even added the customary bling because she also knows I love anything that sparkles!
Isn't it just a great piece of work.

Have a lovely day and thank you so much for stopping by xx

Class cards

Good morning, hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I did! 
It was a weekend of birthday celebrations for my hubby and I.  Our children & grandchildren spoilt us rotten.  My daughter, who is a great cook, cooked us all a 3 course steak meal on my hubby's birthday on 21st and on 22nd my son treated everyone to a Chinese meal (which was very much appreciated too!) for my birthday. I must add that my two young granddaughters acted as the waitresses too! My daughter also spent the day pampering me with a new haircut and colour (don't worry she is a qualified hairdresser!), then a pedicure, finishing off with Jamberry wraps on my toes.
Yesterday, Sunday, the weather was gorgeous so I managed to get some tidying up in the garden done too.
All in all a lovely weekend x
Back to cards!   The following cards were made at another of my craft classes held this year.





Thank you for stopping by today x

Enjoy your week
Take care
Jan xx

Shoebox swap



A couple of weekends ago, I met up with a few Stampin Up friends.  We had a lovely day chatting and crafting.   Everyone had to make a shoebox swap.  This is where each of you have to design a card then supply all the materials to each of the participants.  You place the materials in a shoebox or basket and you pass to the person to your left or right and they make the card up themselves and at their own pace. When they have finished the swap they then  pass to the next person.  Its a fun way of crafting and you each go home with several different cards and full of inspiration! 

This was my shoebox swap.  There is just one thing missing from it and that is the centre of the flower!  Oh well, you can imagine, Im sure!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.
