                 LITTLE BOYS OR BABIES.

My friend Pat has asked  me to make two cards for her God Children who are going to Disneyland in Florida for Christmas. She wanted Mickey and Minnie Mouse  cards with their names on, 

and I have added Mickey and Minnie's heads inside
so that she can slot some Dollars in for their spending money 
 ( shown with DP in photos ).

I hope Pat, and the kids like them?

Would you believe it, but another month has flown by, and I'm in hospital again for my treatment today, so I'll be snuggled up in bed for a few days to recover.Which is just as well as the weather forecast is for cold icy winds and possibly snow!! I love this time of year, don't you ?!!!

Well whatever you are doing for the rest of the week, have a great time, and I'll be back soon

Remembrance Day

Today, this is my DT card for The Male Room with a theme of Remembrance,  and I'll also be entering it into three challenges

The sketch is from Clean and Simple,

the colours from Dynamic Duos,

and Addicted to Stamps  want to see something  


Here it is

As the 11th November is Remembrance Day, and our theme is Remembrance, I've created a poppy out of red butterflies made with a punch, as my focal point.

Supplies :
All are Stampin' Up unless stated otherwise
Card = Real Red, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Loving Thoughts and Fiskars
Inks = Black
Tools = Big Shot, Mosaic Madness EF, Butterfly Punch, Readicut Punch, and Fiskars Scissors
Extras = Ribbon and 3D Pads

What with half term and Halloween, I've been really busy with my niece and nephew. These are the pumpkins that we made, Sophie wanted a cat?, hence the straw whiskers!

 Here we are before the kids smashed the pinata, and we went off Trick and Treating. I'm the green faced witch (and by the way that's a false nose!), Nathan is a zombie skeleton, and Sophie is a witch with a cats face?                                            

Here's a close up of the pinata.



I hope you all had as much fun as we did, but I have to say I'm glad it's only once a year, as the green face paint gets everywhere.


Anyway, today I'm going Christmas shopping with my Mum and Sophie, and we are going to take her to the big garden centre to see all the decorations.Thanks for dropping by, and I'll be back soon
