Happy Birthday Dennis!

Hi friends! June is a big month for birthdays for us, and today is my youngest Dennis, 24th birthday! We lost our wonderful dog Milo 3 weeks ago, so thought I'd put him on the card as this dog stamp from The Stamps Of Life, looks a lot like he did. The paw prints embossing folder is from Kaisercraft, the grass die from MFT and the happy birthday die from CTMH. We are having a lovely winter so far, today didn't get past 19c and the low was about 5c. Fabulous!! I love our winters so lovely to rug up and still nice enough to be outside or at the beach. Hope you are all well and finding time to craft! Thanks for popping by and many blessings xx

Anna's Card.

Hi friends! This card in a box ( die from The Stamps Of Life) is for my dear friend Anna, from my church, who turns 50 this Friday. We have been friends for about 28 years, and she is so giving , kind, and loves the Lord. I used Kaisercrafts collectables, also specialty papers from the " All that Glitters" range. The gold 50 was die cut from MFT dies, using mirror card. I stamped the happy birthday using a SU stamp then used Spellbinders ovals and scalloped ovals to die cut it out.  I really love how this turned out  thanks for popping by, and many  blessings xx

I'm back!

Hi friends! Sorry it's taken me awhile to get back on here, but I was hoping to have a chat AND post a card but, that's not happening and I don't know why but I will try and sort it out. I have had issues with using my phone as it just won't let me on blogger for more than a minute then boots me off..also we had internet issues but now have unlimited internet, so no problem there. Then I went for my eye specialist appointment on the 24th Jan as I have been diagnosed with a condition called AMPPE, and after coming home from the usual check up which means having my eyes dilated, I now have dry eyes, which means drops and trying not to irritate them with fans, lights and the devices we use daily. I also found out I now have advanced AMD which my mum has had for about 20 years, I had a 50% chance of getting it, so such is life. I have good central vision at the moment and the symptoms for AMPPE are the same as AMD so I didn't realise things were changing. So, after telling you all that I have no card to show you I'm sorry, I will try and sort it out. I hope you are all well , thanks for popping in and may our wonderful God bless you  xxx
