A Small Thank You Gift

Hello my lovely friends.  A very quick post today as I am off to a meeting with Mum's heart nurse, just so the nurse can have a chat and catch up with how Mum is faring and do some checks.

As I am not going to be able to craft today, I thought I'd share a quick picture of a little bag I made for someone who was very kind to my mum recently.  It's a bag with some cards, envelopes and a small gift, along with a thank you card for her (I forgot to take a picture before sealing the envelope), never mind, here is the bag.



Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know! If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.  Have a wonderful day!

A Five Hour Retrospective For CAS Mix Up


Hello again my lovelies!  I don't know if you caught my post earlier HERE
where I mentioned that I was going to enter the card to two challenges, until I realised there was no stamping on it, so I was unable to enter it in to Loll and Bonnie's 'CAS Mix Up Challenge'

http://casmixup.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/cas-mix-up-march-challenge.html

Well, I was still kicking my self a few hours later (as I loved the way the smooshed panel had turned out), when I had a light-bulb moment and I added some stamping in the form of a partial sentiment - I hope it isn't classed as cheating, as I do think that it was actually crying out for that addition anyway - so, I stamped 'sending' on a tiny snippet of card-stock and adhered it just above the word 'Hugs'.  I hope this is allowed, as it was only made hours ago!  

Anyway, here it is now, let me know if you think that that was what was missing earlier!






Well, there you have it!  Details are as previous post!  HERE

Another Freshly Made Sketches Entry


Hello lovely people!  I do hope you're having a marvellous weekend!  I have been 'playing' in my craft room and have another  card here for the 'Freshly Made Sketches #279', what can I say . . . I'm making up for lost time!  😉

Here is the sketch.

I had started to link this to Loll and Bonnie's 'CAS Mix Up Challenge' too, but then realised . . . it has no stamping!  DUH!  Never mind!  Here are the rest of the photos, as you can see, I followed the sketch completely today!






Again, I used my Starlight Paints - I am completely hooked on their gorgeous shimmer - and as I didn't want to hide it completely, I used a strip of vellum as the top layer, everything else speaks for itself I think!
