Just a quick post today of my darling daughter.. in my shoes.
 I think she must have been about 3 in this picture.  There was nothing she loved more than to put on my shoes and dig dirt in the garden. She would clip clop back and forth.. just to hear the sound the shoes made.
She's all grown up now..21 this year and has big shoes of her own. 
Where does our youth go.. and why does it have to go there so quickly?
I Need Ideas for a really special  21st birthday card for Rachael in August... any suggestions???

Oh I must tell you... There's been a body found in our street.  A suspicous death the police are calling it!!!!
More news on that in next post!!

Here's a quickie card made for a friends birthday.

I wish I had more time to play with my craft stash, life would be so much easier with a craft room.  No sooner do I pull out all my goodies.. then its time to put them away and cook the tea.

On this card i've used the following
Martha Stewart punch
QK Florish
Magnolia stamp and paper
Copic Markers
Crystal Lacquer
Ranger Perfect Pearls and Viva Pearl Pens

It's a lovely day.

It's a lovely day outside ... but  I haven't really done much of anything with it... I've stamped a few images.. and made two cards.. not much to show for a whole day.  I don't know where the time has gone.

But I must admit I've enjoyed my lazy day..... I've looked at my 4x8 QK Alphabets..and realised that there's a few I've not even used.. so  I have plans for those.
I've used my copics.. haven't done that for a while.

I've cut my new doily lace heart die.. that's so Lorna can see what it's like

I've found some falling flowers for my website.  Pretty aren't they.  Later on if I really make an effort I could try out my new Martha Stewart punch.. so that I can show Lorna how sweet it is.  But until then I think some more chilling is in order to enjoy this really lovely lazy day!

Magnolia Cont.....

Just want to post my very quick layout using the  magnolia pics I snapped yesterday.
It wouldn't cross my mind normally to scrap something from the garden..but this bush has grown with us over a 20 year period.. and I thought it deserved a L/O all of it's own as it looked  so pretty.
Here's  my "get it done in an hour" quickie  L/O
Thats all for today... I have to go sing now!  bye......

Magnolia and I don't mean the stamps

The Magnolia bush in the garden was looking so pretty today I decided to take a quick pic using my phone camera to post on the blog.
It smells devine and it just a mass of white flowers.
I also have some pictures that I sneaked when Rachael wasn't looking.  Again clicked with the trusty phone camera .
The little cat card was a quick draw for a friends birthday who had just arrived back from Florida... note the little Mini Mouse ears on the fairy cake.

I'm almost embarassed to show you what' I've half made.(The one on the left is not quite finished)
I just love the expression on the little girls face.  I must admit it's one of my fav digi stamps. Thanks Mo
The one on the right is a Digi Stamp from Heather-(Available on EtsyPure Innocence digi stamps)
These stamps are so sweet.  It's the simpliciy of them that I really love such an honest little image.  How can you not love them.

The last stamp I have to thank Drea for.
Ahh isn't she a darling.  Just need to add some flowers to this one.

Have a good week.
