This post is dedicated to Swansea Sue

She probably won't read it until Monday when she is at work (shhhh!) Just to say thanks for being a fabby friend for longer than I have been alive (seeing that I am only 25 and we have been friends for 27 years). Here is a page I made of Sue and my talented God daugher Nerissa (all the talent came down the Godmother genes obviously) who is also great friends with Carys. It's only another 23 years until we can see each other every day (when I retire back to Swansea!)
I had to use 'good' not 'best' because of the colour of the letters! The papers and letters are from my Cool Blue Crate cowgirl kit. Friends is my new foam stamps, journal spot is Purple Onion from a recent SA kit. I think you know the flowers by now....
I was feeling very down last night so lost myself in a bit of crafting and it really did the trick!


I made two more cards for the Daring Cardmakers BLING! challenge as well.
Firstly the card on the site. The photo there does not show how shiny that card is - this one is more out of focus but more blingified
Some more of my new Chipboard UTEE'd to the hilt. The middle dot uses Kingfisher utee from Joanna Sheen. Rest of flower is the same but with extra fine blue glitter added. The outer part has Kingfisher then Pearl then extra fine silver glitter. The glitters are from Stationery Box for 99p for 4 and they are just as good as expensive ones IMHO

This card is for Sarah who I let down badly by not sending her a birthday card for BC2 on Crafts by Carolyn's forum. Her birthday is just after Christmas which must be pants in itself in some ways and not helped when those who should be sending you cards don't. More UTee'd chipboard, rub on letters and almost a whole tube of stickles. So sorry Sarah.
And then a teeny bit of bling on this one Just the 'T' but it shows off my new Blonde moments UTEE. Its a lush greeny gold. Mmmmm. Papers are Cherry Arte from Cool Blue. 6 sheets of paper, 3 bazzill card, sheet robons and 2 flowers for 2:50. Lovely!



PS: I did peel the tree picture off and remount it and it looks (a bit) better now
