Twinkle Twinkle!


I've a card to show you today.
It's the card I made for the dedication of our friends latest addition.
The image is from a stamp I have had for ages, but it's very cute!
I've used muted blues and browns for this card, great for baby cards.

I've added pearls to add some glamour and a small amount of glitter
to the stars on the sentiment.

I have loads of cards to make over the next few days on top of 
everything I need to get done!!!
Best get on as I need to get my craft bag ready for tomorrow's trip down the road to
see Julie and the lovely Jems for the last time :(
I'll fill you in on what we get up to on Monday.

Hold My Hand

I have another Bible study journal page to show you.
I've used a picture of Samuel's tiny hand taken shortly after he was born.
I can't believe he was so small!

I've kept this page nice and simple as the focus is the picture
and the Bible verse.
For those of you that are interested the bible verse I've used is
Psalm 37 v 23 & 24.

I'm having a busy week.
We are getting closer to a result on the planning permission for our church cafe,
so I spent the day yesterday at a local supplier to the catering trade
talking all things cafe, from fancy coffee machines, cups and teaspoons to display counters
and milk jugs!!
I am in the process of writing a VERY long shopping list!!

I'll be back tomorrow with something else crafty.

Birthday Page

Hello, sorry for the late post!!
Jonathan and I have spent most of today at the Salvation Army Hall
with the over 60's group, finding out what they get up to.

Here is another scrapbook page but this time it's a 6x6 page.
This one is for the boys album.
I haven't yet finished my next Bible study journel page!!!
Hopefully it will be ready to show you tomorrow.

This layout uses the brilliant Party This Way stamp set from Stampin'Up,
great for all things birthday!
The picture is of Ben's 1st birthday party, can't believe we have just had 
his 5th!

Speaking of the kids, time to feed them again.
Enjoy your evening.

2 Little Monkeys!

Here is a card I made at the weekend for our God-Daughters
2nd birthday.
The monkeys are appropriate as she can be a little monkey, just like all

I'm trying to use up scraps of card and papers from my drawer and scraps
of ribbons too!
I seem to have loads, I'm sure I hadn't put that much in the drawer!!

I'll be back tomorrow with another scrapbook page for my journel.

Scrapbook Journel

Good Morning.
Well you may have noticed a few changes I've made to my blog.

Sadly due to the many commitments I have and the very busy year ahead
I have had to resign from being a Stampin'Up demonstrator.
It's very sad and it hasn't been an easy decision to make, 
but I know that it is the right thing to do.

But don't panic, I will hopefully still find the time to blog and craft.
And of course you can follow us through our journey into officership,
our move to London and beyond.

One of the things I have to do over the next few months is to keep both
a prayer and bible study journel.
Well what better way to for a crafter to keep a journel that to create
a scrapbook.

Here is the first one!
I'm using the blog 365 Promises (link is in my side bar) for prompts for my bible study.
Then I am picking my fav of the weeks passages to scrap and reflect on.
Plus it's also a gret of me doing something creative with all these
photos I have!!

Funnily enough there will be more of these over the next weeks and months!

so make sure you pop back to check them out and tell me what
you think.

Lets Eat Cake!!

Good Morning!
Sorry for not having posted for a few days,
our house has been very busy last week and over the weekend.
Full of birthday fun for Ben.

The picture above is Ben's birthday cake.
Now I have to confess I didn't make the cake as I was soooo busy but 
I did decorate it.

Watch out this week for some changes to my blog.

Would you be suprised if I told you how busy we 
have been, even though the boys only went back to school today!!

Wednesday is Ben's 5th birthday!
I can't believe he will be 5, my little man is growing up!
This is the card I have made for his birthday.

He loves Toy Story, in particular the aliens.
Great excuse to get my punches out and create.

This afternoon I managed to make these cute cupcakes.

Yummy lemon, Ben's favourite flavour.
Think I might put one in his lunch box school tomorrow.
