Pretty colour scheme at Sunrise!

Hi there everyone.  What a beautiful day it is here. The sun is shining brightly and we are ready to go to Church for the start of Easter week.  Traditionally, we e process around the church building today with palms to mark the beginning of Easter week.  Some years have been so gloomy, cold and wet but not today!!

Anyway, here is the card we made at Sunrise Crafts this week.  I absolutely love the colour scheme. What do you think?

I love it!   It's designed by Bhanu of Sunrise a Crafts.  She is such an inspiration!

Have a wonderful Sunday.

See you soon.

50 years tied together!!

Wow!  What a long time is 50 years.  Happy Anniversary to Geoff and Helen.

I loved making this card and the photos really don't do it justice.  Helen always appreciates my handmade cards so I more than hope she especially likes this one for her special day.

The inside was made using my trusty Serif Digital Craft Artist.

Thanks for looking.

Have a great weekend if I don't see you before :-)

For a four year old boy......

For some reason, I struggled to get this card going.  I was thinking of using a character - a really lovely little image from Crafters Companion's Adam range of Adam on a tree swing but my crafty mind was just not working on that day - well for a couple of days in-fact because I just couldn't get it started.  Anyway, I decided that I should just redirect my thoughts and change my plan altogether.  This is what I came up with and I guess it's kind of cute.  The kites and papers are digital files from My Grafico.  The lettering was done in Serif Craft Artist which I use pretty much whenever I craft at home.

.....and a little peek at the inside.  I made up the verse......

I would like to enter this into the following challenges....

One for the Boys - The Crafting Cafe

Thanks for looking.  Hope your Wednesday is wonderful!!

Happy birthday to my gorgeous daughter.......

It's been a tough couple of weeks.  My granddaughter stayed here for a few days whilst she was a little poorly and then it was tim to do the new year accounts which is always challenging.  Now though, it's time to craft!!  I have started with a pretty birthday card for my daughter who celebrates her birthday tomorrow.....

Happy birthday JJ.  Hope you have the most wonderful day!!

If anyone from craft class is reading - you are right in thinking that my plan was to do a brown and cream theme but I just couldn't do it!!  I really did try.  I cut out a few elements and got a background ready.  I even sorted out the ribbon but when it came down to it, I just had to do a pretty pink!!  Still, I love it.  The bear is fizzy moon from Serif Digital Craft Artist.

Thanks for reading.  Have a great evening - not much of it left!!

Bye for now xx
