The husband of a friend is keen on ski-ing, so decided as he was off on a ski-ing holiday on the day of his birthday this would be the ideal subject for a card.  I search the QK Silhouette site and found this, it was free as well - not sure I cut it on the craft robo..

I am sure if I had time I could have incorporated the greeting with the cutting - but tbh I had left it a bit late and it was a last minute flash of inspiration!

and yet another

OK it may not last but thought I would do another post today.  I have have just spotted that Sally-Ann from the digi-stamp boutique is offering some blog candy, her designs are lovely.  I still use her stamps that I bought ages ago.

As Mother's Day is fast approaching I thought it was worth reminding you that I did some word circles for you to print and then punch them out - here is one that I used with one of Sally's designs:

DON'T FORGET 5th March will be the day that Sue will be start the birthday/spring week - there will be loads of things - it would be lovely to see you there.

Last year I had a play about and made cards using tickets.  There are rubber stamps available, but you can't personalise them -  so I thought it would be fun doing them in MSWord so that you can custom make your own.  Did any of you have a go - or even see the article?  

As well as the downloads there are some useful links to other ticket makers along with some lovely tickets and cards made by Ruthie .

I have just looked back over last year and can see I made no mention of them on the you might have missed them.

I hope that I have managed to send everyone a newsletter by now - it was a real struggle this time - I had many problems - and I am sorry if I have sent you it twice.

Another Robo file

Just letting you know that I have added another file - this one is for scallops and printing too, and also some lovely borders.  No need to worry about getting a punch now...Scallops and tags


I have made some cards with the borders - but need to get them photographed - so will show them later.  so what are you up to?

New pages and freebies

I have updated the web site today with new Craft Robo templates and also some other projects.  I still have more cards to add and will hopefully do another quick update, so check back soon.

I am now clearing my craft room out - as I am going to swap rooms with Owen - so I seriously need to downsize and get tidying - I can't see it being done overnight, but I really want to get stuff has got too untidy and sprawling.  If you have any ideas for my new room let me know.

ONLY 2 weeks since the last post

...I am at home full of cold today, so been vegging out on the sofa, I guess I was guaranteed to be struck down with it seems everyone I know had been poorly!

I made quite a few cards a couple of weeks ago - I took some down to the Leanne at Flowers with Flair in town, and thought I would share a couple with you. As usual...simple....I just love this stamp of the Edwardian couple, and stamped in sepia with the prima flowers it looks fab. I borrowed Sue's several time and eventually tracked it down and bought my own.

I bought this pretty dress at Stamp Addicts on my birthday as it was half price, it is just so cute - my kind of thing...shame I don't have any little girls to share it with!

I hope to update the site fairly soon - I did manage to do a little change around on the Robo menus a few days ago and have added a new file there for Robo/Silhouette and other GSD file users - I would love to know if you make use of it:

Scallops - borders and messages

We have a frosty day here, seems like a lot of the UK is the same, judging by the traffic news - not that I have ventured out here but can see that the conservatory roof was very frosted, not that I spent much time out there, sitting on a deck chair isn't that much fun unless you are on the beach! I have ordered my furniture for the conservatory - so can't wait for it to arrive so I can sit out there.
