Anniversary card & Mickey Mouse

Hi everyone, just don't seem to be getting enough time to do any crafting or blogging recently. I made this anniversary card yesterday - not for anyone in particular just to add to the stash LOL. I used to make a lot with Paper Nation - or sorry should that be Jolly Nation now ??? but not done any for a while.

Well, I made this Mickey mouse today for my little friend Zak - bless him!!!! He's three and he's my boss Jo's little boy. A couple of months ago Jo hurt her shoulder really badly and couldn't drive so I spent several weeks picking her up in a morning and dropping her off at night. In the morning we would then have to take Zak to his childminders before going onto work. Since then he's mentioned me a few times in various situations which is really sweet!!! I made a card for Jo for Zak to give to his best friend Helena - I did Minnie Mouse and Zak really liked it and couldn't quite understand why he couldn't have it because he liked Minnie as well as Mickey!!!! So I told Jo I would make him a Mickey to put on his bedroom wall - and here he is - I made him 10inches high. Hope Zak likes him xx

Well, I had all the prep work done on friday afternoon for my crown and my god I've decided I really do have a low pain threshold LOL. My god it really, really hurt later on friday once numbness wore off and saturday was awful - my jaw hurt, all my left side of face really hurt even my eyes were sore and had a banging headache!!!! Today quite a bit better apart from my jaw which is still really painful - must be from all the stretching of mouth and keeping it open for 45minutes LOL. God I am a wuss LOL LOL

I'm off to Manchester for Creditors circle meeting for work on Tuesday - I'm just hoping I'm back in time for gym and Fat club. I've lost 11 lbs and 12 ozs - yippeeeeeee - still got a long way to go though!!!

Well, I'm off to do a bit of crafting - think I might do a House Mouse card - seen the new decoupage images today and soooooooo want them - sorry soooooo NEED them LOL but will have to wait a bit cos I'm skint and what little I've got I need for when I visit Lynne on saturday - can't wait to see you Lynne.

Bye for now, Gay xx

I was asked to make a card for Toni who's husband is 50 - motorbikes was one of his interests so themed it on that. Mongy is what was asked to be put on, honest!!! I gave it to Toni today and she really liked it - hope her hubby does too!!!

Close up of metal motorbike embellishment - god it was hard work finding one LOL

Inside of card - left it quite basic as I know Toni wants to put a poem inside.
Well, I managed to sell a few of my bags today which is great - I need to pay for my crown LOL. I've already put it off for 2 months because couldn't afford it - so really can't postpone again. Not looking forward to it. I'm a big yellow scaredy custard LOL
Well, I'm off now to do a few bits before John comes home from work.
Catch you all soon

Card Order for Jemma

Hi, sorry not been posting much recently, just don't know where the time goes!! I've been sorting out all my bag charms etc this weekend - I have now put them all onto card and into cellophanes - much better - but been very time consuming!!!! I'm hoping to do a couple of craft fairs so can try to sell them - fingers crossed.
I was asked on friday if I could do a card order - girly for Jemma - so here it is - hope its ok.

I used Martha Stewart punch around the page punch - first time actually tried this - think I will be using it a lot in future LOL - love it!!! I've used border punches and corner punches in the past but not together like this - I know I'm behind the times LOL.

I used my Big Shot and Twinkle toes alphabet to cut out Jemma.

I went out on Saturday with my friend, Laura, to Hobby Horse at Elvaston but unfortunately it was shut :( really don't know why, maybe gone away for the bank holiday weekend. Anyway, we went to The Range in Nottingham instead and a few new items landed in my basket - I really don't how that happened LOL.

Anyway I'm off now to watch Biggest Loser Australia - nearly at the final now - keep thinking if they can do it I can !!!!! Well, we'll have to see, I have lost just over 1/2 stone so far but still long way to go.
