Tope Note Stepper Card

Today's card I made to thank some lovely ladies for sending me beautiful flowers whilst I was in hospital recently. It is a Tope Note Stepper Card, the instructions for which I got from Julie Leece. I have had the instructions for ages but never got around to making it. Julie's instructions where nice and easy to understand.
       This shows the side on view. The only problem I had was were do I write on the card.

On this card I have used a new stamp set, Fabulous Florets, from the up coming mini  catalogue, due to start on 1st December. I chose whisper white base and baja breeze, rose red and pink pirouette card and elegant eggplant and black ink.
I liked it but what do you think?

Till next time
Take CAre


I have seen various forms of these "elf legs" online, so I decided to get some Christmas spirit happening and make some of my own. These were fun to make and I cant wait to share them with family and friends over the Christmas time.

Arent they just so cute?
These would make great gifts for anyone.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
have a great day

Mum's Birthday Card

My Dear Mum celebrated her birthday recently while they were visiting and helping me out.

I was working the day of her birthday, so being unorganised as I was on that day I even had to buy her birthday cake. It was a Berry Cheesecake from the Cheesecake shop. This would have to be the first Cheesecake I have ever bought. I always make the cheesecake or whatever cake is needed for the birthday. Oh well even Domestic Goddesses have their off days!!!

This is the card that I made for Mum's Birthday

Mum really liked the card I made for her. It was particularly hard trying to make this card with Mum hovering and asking what I was doing all the time. I ended up waiting until everyone was in bed before getting it done. 
Bye for Now

Birthday Greetings

I made this card for a close friend who celebrated her birthday last Thursday. I hope she had a great day and was spoilt by her family.

Using the Elements of Style stamp set, but not the flowers this time. I have used rich razzleberry, old olive, whisper white cardstock and ink and some retired old olive taffeta ribbon from christmas last year. I saw a card similar to this online somewhere but cant remember who it came from.(sorry)

Thanks for stopping over here to have a look.

Missing In Action

Well my dear friends, sorry about the lack of posts lately. I have had surgery and just haven't had the inclination to post any of my cards etc. I have had my wonderful parents with me for 8 weeks, they came when my surgery was to first go ahead and when it was cancelled they just stayed on. Mum and I did some crafting, trying out a few new things and even had my Dad peeling off the double sided tape backing when we were mass producing calendars for the school fete.

So over the next few days I will show you some of what I have been up to in the last little while. Mind you I made some lovely thank you cards, but gave them away to the hospital staff that looked after me so well.

This is a birthday card I made to give to my Mum for her birthday, but not the one she received. I made two and then couldn't decide which one she would like the most.

This card was made with soft suede, baja breeze and cherry cobbler card stock.
I even tried my hand out at embossing with the cherry cobbler embossing powder, not bad for a beginner in this field.

Well I hope you are all geared up for the oncoming festive season and are all well and happy.
Take Care
