This is a card i have made for my nephew who has turned into a man today as he is 21(awww bless Daniel). he is in the Army so hence the number 21 decorated with a military theme which i think he will love. Didn't have a clue what i was doing, but it all just cane together with the little bits of military items i had.

Rock chick card

Just a quick posting. This is a variation onthe onei did earlier inmy blog with Ian as the image. This time i thought the colours and stars would go perfect with my High Hopes Stamp. Hope you like

One card but four challenges

I have really enjoyed putting this card together, therefore i am going to enter it for four challenges (my goodness) that is amazing for me (lol). So the first challenge is Saturday secret Crafter
where it is One for the Girls for this weeks challenge and i think this is definately a girly card (he he), the second would be Our Creative Corner
where there challenge is a colour combo and one of my favouritesi have to say(lucky me).
the third is High Hopes
where of course the challenge is to use your favourite High Hopes Stamp. Forth challenge has to be creative Card crew, where it is to decorate the inside of your card. (phew) think i covered everything, it is harder to do a post for four cards than actually make a card(what do you lot think?
I have to say i think the flower soft feathered bower and pearl necklace really set this card of and make it look so girly. hugs debra

BIL Birthday Card for 50th

I made this card last night for my BIL birthday, he is going to be the big 50. He is crazy about golf. I based this card on Sems sketch from last weeks Sunday Sketch and Stamp as i just love this layout, it is so versatile. Layered the embossed circles to look like golf balls and also the Kanban Pearls are supposed to give the golf ball effect also. hope you like.

Feeling very sad

Hi everyone
Just thoguht i would let my bloggy friends know why my cards have dropped a lot lately. I am in the middle of seperating from my husband, although i am still living with him till a house gets sorted within hopefully the next few weeks. This is a very difficult time for myslf and family especially our 3 beautiful childen, we have tried our best to save our 12 year marraige and total relationship of 18 years but it can be no more i am afraid to say. I am now gong to be a lone parent with 3 children and have therefore decided to study 2 A levels in the hope i can better my future for the sake of our children and myself. I am an emotional reck at the moment and find it hard as we still live in the same house and just don't know how i am going to build my life again, i met him when i was just 15 years old and the world has changed so much i am so scared but need to be strong for the children, i will try to focus on my card making when i have moved and settled and will occasionally blog hop until i have my full strength back. I hope you understand and don't all dissapear and leave me i will be blogging but maybe not as much.
big hugs Debra

I placed an order back on August the 1st and i am still awaiting some follow up items that were out of stock. I have tried to email them but it won't work and also tried ringing them and there mailbox is full which is a bit strange, so i thought i would see if anyone else has had any problems?
thanks Debra

My First Diary

I really enjoyed making my first homemade Diary. I know it's a bit late in the year but i am finding i need a day to day diary at the moment, and as i loved the Lilly of the Valley sketch so much and my final result of my card the other night, i thought i would do a slightly adjusted version and add lots of ribbons to create my adorable new diary.
My daughter woke this morning to find it on the table and loved it and asked who it was for and looked gobsmacked when i said it was for myself (lol), she thought i had made it for someone else.
