hi guys i haven't updated my blog for a few days now , but i have been feeling a little sad over the past few weeks as i've not been able to get to oklahoma ready for my daughter to give birth and i so wanted to be there for her :( 
This week though lee has got to have some pain blocks in his spine to try and help him with his back.

OK the top photo is a stitch i done when my son james was a baby so it's about 25 years old  and still looking good.

The second photo, is a card i started designing tonight. and this is as far as i've got i just loved the paper and yes it is wall paper my daughter works for one of the large companies and this was half a roll that as left over so she brought it home for me to see if i could use it and it makes lovely paper and design for cards.

The third photo is of my puppy odi, wearing a hat, he was so very happy not that he looks it but his 8 so we'll forgive him for that one lol.

my card for the simply betty challege

hi guys well i've designed two cards using the franken betty from simply betty stamps.
the top one is coloured in reds and blacks,for the backing it's a downloaded paper from scrap in the city which i've wrapped in cream ribbon for the wrapped part of the challenge the feather is just another piece of the same ribbon with i dyed with ink, cut stripes up the ribbon up each end leaving a centre piece whole and the took away all the spare fibres. i finished it off with added 3 gems to each side of the card.

the second card is the frankenbetty coloured green this time, the backing papers are plain black and green to go with frenken betty, this time i remembered i had some thick medi tape left over from lee's last op, so used that to wrap this time i added extra bits here and there because it's not meant to be perfect is it? lol. but i was happy with the outcome.
