Happy Birthday To Suuuuuuuuuuzi

T'was my Sistaaaaahhhhh's Burpday on Wednesday.... She's now the grand old age of "Thirty Fi - cough cough".... sorry where was I?.... She is in a band called The Circus of Sound and they are fandabidoubledozie!!!... oh and I made her these coz she is super lovely!....

Circus of Sound - I wanna CD - pretty pleaseseseses!!!

I made the card above using Lorie Davison's Faerily Moonlit Kit (with everything in it!) and some Prima flowers, with some blue Prima lace trim. I cut out the dancing faerie with my Craft Robo - because I am severely scissor challenged and I find tracing the image on my pc easier (probably takes longer, but that's me!) I simply adore Lorie's art - she is amazing!

And this one with some of Kay Miller's papers in the background with Basic Grey papers for the small squares, which were cut on the Cuttlebug and American Crafts Chipboard letters added... Oh and a touch of Prima Crystals too bought from here (lovely shop in Upminster - with super lovely owner!)

I am chatting too much - sorry!

FELTastic Hearts

I'm a self-confessed felt-a-holic... I love the stuff... So I thought I'd go all out and see if I could sew straight! tee hee - it is getting better-ish!... Well, I've combined my love of hearts, felt, aromatherapy and pink and come up with a few of these. Simple crafting is sometimes the most rewarding isn't it... Plain and simple and sweet - easy enough for me anyhoooo!...

The pink and green one is my fav - not least because that has a few drops of a 'stress and tension relief' blend of oils in it... Hmmm - maybe I should keep that one!

Sad post....

I am sorry, but, I have to pay tribute to this guy... Because I loved him dearly - so - I am posting a sad post - but a tribute to a wonderful faithful friend... We lost our boy on Tuesday, very unexpectedly - following what should have been a routine op - he was 11 months and 2 weeks old... He passed away. In his short time with us he taught us so much and our children too... He will be missed. I know it's not something that is normally posted - but I wanted his picture here - because he's beautiful and I was so proud of him... He came top in his puppy class... He was part of a demo team for German Shepherd Dogs and he loved, loved, loved to work... This guy is gonna be one special angel I tell ya... One of the best - love you Buddy.x.
