Time flies.......

Hi everyone, wow I can't believe how the weeks fly by! I have been crafting but can't show you everything as the birthdays haven't happened yet :o)
I was lucky to achieve Santa Supreme with my last card for CASing Christmas but haven't managed to make one this week. We had a lovely weekend in Bristol catching up with some old friends who we haven't seen for about 18 years!! Fabulous food and too much wine! It was Carol's birthday while we were down there and this is the card I made for her:

The same day it was my nephews 50th and his wife asked me to make a pop up card
 with family photos and hobbies and this is it:

There were a lot of photos and Paula found it difficult to choose her favourites so I made a mini album with the rest, come and see:

Finally a small acceptance card for a wedding invitation, only 2 to go to this year!

We have the builders back with us so chaos reigns again for a couple of weeks but at least the weather is lovely!
Apologies if I haven't commented on your posts but I always check them out, I've had a  couple of commisions with fairly short notice and it's been a bit hectic :o)

Easter catch up

Hi everyone I hope you all had a lovely Easter and didn't over indulge! I had a busy week leading up to the weekend with front row seats at our local theatre on Tuesday to see Pasha from Strictly which was amazing! It was a present for my friend Jean for her birthday and we had a nice meal beforehand. The next day Jean and I went to see Made in Dagenham, brilliant, followed by a fab Japanese meal and Thursday caught up with friends over a very nice Indian meal!!
Charlie had a great weekend the highlight being a ride on a big red bus,upstairs in the front seat! He was amazed that it talked and repeated all the stops :o)

I've been busy making some special birthday cards that can't be shown yet and I was sorry to miss last week's CASE-ing Christmas challenge! I needed to put that right and so here is this weeks card that I cased from DT Rocky's card:

I chose to go with the bauble and red. I used SU Christmas baubles stamp and punch and some glitter paste through a flourish stencil. Rocky's card is below, fabulous eh?

No choir for another couple of weeks so my Wednesday evenings are free, more time to catch up with friends :o) 
It's the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking fair this weekend at Ally Pally so I may just have to go along for a little look! Anyone else going it would be nice to catch up!
Hope you're all enjoying this fab spring weather, long may it continue :o)
