For Caitlin

My good friend Steve, who works at the same school as I, and his wife Sarah, had a beautiful baby girl this morning at 2.45am. They have called her Caitlin.

The image is from 'Karen's Doodles', please see the link on my blog if you would like to view and purchase any of her lovely creations.  Sadly, this is the last card I will be making before going into hospital tomorrow as I just don't have any more time but I will be taking loads of images into hospital with me to colour etc to while away the hours, the loooooonnnnnnnng drawn out hours before my release.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like the card?
Hugs, Fae xxx

Lianne's Sports Presentation Evening 2010

Just a few more days and my little girl will officially be a teenager!!! OMG!!! She has all the teenage attitude now and is a handful but she has blossomed into a beautiful young lady (just wish she would show it more towards her family, especially her brother).

She went off to her Sports Presentation Evening last night with her friends and they were all dressed up like it was THE social event of the year and all looked amazing, as did all the girls (and lads) at Lianne's party recently. Thought I would share with you one of her photos, Lianne is in the black and white and her best friend Sam is in the blue dress. Don't they look grown up?

Thanks for dropping by and watching me making myself feel old. Come back soon.

Swirls and Curls

Here's a little something I made today to while away the hours between Lewis' Sports Day and picking the children up from school.

The image is Penny Black (cling-on stamps) which I coloured with coloured pencils and 'smudged' with Sansodor and a few blenders. I just love this technique!  The 'frame' around the image has been cut with my Big Shot and my new Nellie Snellen Multi Frames. The ribbon was purchased from Watford Indoor Market, the gemstones came from PoundLand and the 'swirl's' were created, also on my Big Shot, with my Marianne Creatables. The red card was border punched with my Martha Stewart Doily Punch.

Hope you like it?

Thank you very much for stopping by and hope to see you here again soon.

More Leavers Cards

Well, I have been a very busy girl today. Having finally slept after arranging Lianne's birthday party and sorting everything out for that, with mum's help, thanks mum! I have finally been able to get on with the many leavers cards I have had to make.  As it is our last week of term this week, THIS weekend was my only chance to get them done in time for everyone at work to sign them.

Here are ALL the leavers cards I have made this evening (in between watching the most boring game of the World Cup 2010), only watched it because I had SPAIN in the sweepstake at work! And I won...wahhooooo result! are the cards:

And did read correctly, I have been making these cards all day and my poor hubby settled only for a cheese and ham sandwich for his dinner! Bless him!

All of the images (apart from Cliffy) are from Karen's Doodles, digital images. They are all so lovely and so many to choose from. be sure to pop over and give her a visit as she currently has a buy 3 get 1 free offeer on all her images. What a great excuse to get introduced to digi images (or just buy more if you're addicted to them like me).

Hope you liked the cards, thanks for popping by.
Please be sure to pop back and see me again soon. Thanks and hugs, Fae xxx

Pineapple chunks and cheese, cocktails sausages on sticks, quiche, sandwiches, seafood platters, dips, crisps, picked up the cake, picked up giant '1' and '3' helium balloons.... pause for breathe.... ironed steve's clothes, ironed my clothes and lewis', did two loads of washing AND cooked the chicken nuggets and chicken legs. Two more hours to go and I think I am done!!! PHEW

Now I need a nice long sleep. wake me up in the morning, it's too hot for partying!

Lucky Leprechaun

Well, I have made a new friend, Karen at Karen's Doodles. Except their not doodles they're amazing digitial stamps and little mini works of art and there are so many different characters to choose from I have just literally gone bonkers for them. I have seen her images around for a while but didn't know where to source them and then I came across her site just by accident and have been an almost permanent resident ever since.

Anyway, I purchased this rather lively leprechaun from her this week and thought he would be perfect for Jan's A4 'Good Luck' card, as she is leaving the school, where I work, at the end of this term for pastures new.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my cards. Please come again soon.
