Some more cards that I have made over the weekend

I had an enjoyable relaxing weekend this one just gone and managed to get  some cards made for different swaps and challenges I am taking part in this week.
Not only that I have finished knitting another hat for my church's winter programm that of Operation Cover Up. Each winter volunteers in the church family knit peggy squares to be made up into blankets and as well hats and scarves. These usually go to places like Romania and other countries in Europe where they are most needed. So far I have done two children's hats and have just started on the third one today.
The cards that I made over the weekend were for sketches one was for my Paper Follies group over at Yahoo groups and the other one was for I did it Creations forum. I think there is another part to the new name of the forum but have trouble remembering it at presemt.
The landscape brown toned card was made for a swap at Paper Follies and I am really happy with the way this one turned out.
The second card the red and cream one is made for the sketch at I did it Creations forum.

Christmas Bell cards

Hi all well it was not the best of weekends weather wise here so it was a good time for me to do some card making.
I made these two Christmas Bell cards from a Bell shaped cutting file that I purchased on line at
This lady has some awesome card shape templates and printable words that you can buy and use in card making.
I am also entering the blue Christmas Bell card for a challenge over at
 for the Christmas in June Party that they are having at present.
the red Christmas bell card is for a swap that I am on at one of my Yahoo groups.

Have also done this lovely pruple inspired happy birthday easel card for a friend just a bit late in getting it mailed off to her though.

Circle Journal Pages and I did it Creations Forum Sketch #7

Well I am back again at my blog after just giving it a minor face lift and I must say that I like the fresh look of this background called Moments in Time,actually reminds me of the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder that I just love to use lots.
Have finally got these Circle journal pages for Rose Anne done and I really like the way they have turned out as well. Her theme was Flowers a great theme to work on too I might add.
Also made this sketch card for which is Sketch #7.
Enjoy my creations.

Time to blog again

Here it is nearly a month since I last made a blog entry and a whole heap of stuff has happened in that time too.
I have now finished working as a school cleaner. This will give me more time to create and take classes go to SENZ next month in Christchurch and go to Timaru to do the odd class down there as well.
Boy the weather has gotten really cold here this past week Winter has definitely arrived for sure.
Alastair has had his first week at the LSV programme at Burnham Military camp so hopefully it has gone well for him. We are hoping to be able to go to his March Out parade on the 10th July. He also turns 19 whilst he is in there too.
I have got lots of cards to share with you all so might have to do all of this in two uploads I think.
Have been doing local classes atThe Little Craft shop with Liz and Lorraine and really enjoying these and today submitted an application to hopefully become a design team member for a local scrapbooking shop. One never knows what the future might hold HUH.
Now for those pics.
