Hi folks having a good week weather wise it forcast rain but we've had another fine day that three in a row, managed to get loads of washing done.
Having a good time crafting as well this week.  I managed to stamp some flowers yesterday and had a nice time colouring them in while watching Tv . I'm out on Wednesday afternoons at a local church hall, they have a small group of people that either embroider or knit while having a natter. They are all a lot older than me but very talented ladies.  Tonight I. decorated my flowers then made them into a card.
The first card I have to show you I made for Husband who's Birthday was on Saturday, he was thrilled to bits with it.

The next card was a quick mans card I made for my box, I used a free stamp, a paint strip a picture from Making cards magazine and card candy. The last one is my flower card made with Happy Birthday stamp, shrink plastic, stamps by Chocolate Baroque .The sentiment  is a lili of the valley stamp. I used a free die to cut the butterflies,added gems, pearl shimmer glue, stickles and promarkers.
I'm off to bed now as I'm freezing sat here.
Thanks for visiting. Love and crafty hugs xxChrisB

Today I  had a good morning  getting my washing dry,  also managed to do some crafting while watching tv . I was doing some colouring and putting a card together.
 Hubby was at the hospital today so tried to keep busy to take my mind off it.
I also had our Maddison coming for tea , so made her favourite Cottage Pie. followed by Rice Pudding.
Hubby back home and as to keep rested for a week, he usually does most of the shopping as I can't carry
much one handed. So it looks like I will be out  nearly everyday getting some each day.

I've managed to make four cards , I have used Jungle Friends, Monkeying  Around and Animal Safari all stamps

designed by Sam Poole.
Well will have to go for now. Thanks for dropping by all your comments are appreciated. Love and crafty hugs x ChrisB

Hi Hope you have all had a nice weekend.  I  always have a busy time on Sunday, it's housework time after 12pm when Maddison has gone home.  I have a good clean through and make a start on stripping the bedding  and and doing all the other washing that's piled up.  Then tea needs making before I know it after that I have a  bath before dropping exhausted  down to watch Mr  Selfridge. I really missed Call the Midwife tonight I thoroughly enjoyed watching the series.
I was busy most of the week working on a commission of a Wedding card I  had to do. It's a few years since I made a wedding card for anyone. I used to make them regularly for a customer when I was working. I really enjoyed making this one and the box I used  a stamp that belongs to a friend and some old Papermania papers that I had.  The person who I made it for was thrilled with it. I just hope the receiptients are too.

Thanks for dropping by, sorry I've not got around to looking at your blogs, will try to this week. 
Take care, love and crafty hugs x ChrisB

Hi, hope your all having a good start to the week. I have been having a tidy up after a hectic weekend with Maddisons Birthday. She had a lovely time, her Daddy bought her a X treme Drumkit and keyboard. So we had a very noisy time as she set about entertaining us. Banging away giving it her all, while singing as well to her favourite music band One Direction. Needless to say we ended up wanting some ear plugs after about 3 hours of that.  She finally decided to give the drums a rest when her Birthday cake appeared.
I have spent today making a birthday card for my friend. It's her Birthday next thursday, but she's taking me to the hospital on Monday so have had to try and get it done quick. I just hope she will like it.

I have used Chloes shoe stamps and my Tonic Die and lace from my stash.
Thanks for visiting. Love and crafty hugs x ChrisB
