Happy Hopper

This is not quite a House Mouse as I know I seem to have steered towards them quite a bit lately, but I do love this image. The greeting is by Penny Black and the background papers by DCWV and I used my trusty border punch and - wait for it - MORE ribbon. I need therapy!!The embossing at the bottom of the card is one of the new border folders from Cuttlebug.

Happy 40th

My sister asked me to make a card for her friend's 40th birthday but wanted something to do with keep fit as she was training for a marathon. I thought this little House Mouse image was perfect and is just so cute. The background papers are by DCWV and so are the letters for the name. The numbers were cut using my Cuttlebug.

Wedding Scrap Book

I recently went along to the wedding of our estimator at work, Paul and his new wife, Nina. Their wedding card is the House Mouse card on my blog somewhere. They decided not to have a photographer and I was worried that they might not get around to putting an album together. While they were away on their honeymoon, I put together a scrapbook of the day as a surprise for them when they came back. They were thrilled to bits and sent me a lovely thank you card and, for the first time, I actually took photos of the book (I usually give them away and forget to keep a record) so thought I would add it to my blog to see what you think.

I'm Back!!

Hi everyone

I apologise for my absence over the last few weeks but the medication the doctor has put me on for epilepsy has been wiping me out and I haven't been able to keep my eyes open/11 (Nothing new there then .....) I have still been crafting but not really trurning the computer on. Sadly, I left my job on Friday due to my lack of transport and now that I have finally stopped bawling my eyes out - I loved the job and everyone I worked with - I am now stuck at home so will try and catch up with everyone. Prepare yourselves for a barrage ........

This card was made for my sister and her husband for their anniversary and I used the House Mouse image again together with my Cuttlebug and just a tiny bit of ribbon .....
