Hello all you lovely people, not a bad day weatherwise, quite mild.
My card today was made yesterday for my son-in-laws birthday today, the image is ideal as he has always got his head stuck under the bonnet of his car.I have not got one embellishment on this which was hard for me but I don't think he would have appreciated any ribbon or gems.

The image is one of Karens Doodles "Mr Fix it Car coloured with promarkers. and the backing paper is Pink Petticoat. I do hope you like it.xxx

Jule's Crafty Snippets

Good afternoon all you lovely people, I have had such a lazy Sunday and so enjoyed it.My card today is initially for one of my great blog pals Jules, she has a Sunday theme of using all your scraps only on whatever you make, it is a way of getting rid of all those scraps you keep for a rainy day. So this is my contribution to getting rid of those scrap piles.The image is from Crafty Sentiments her name is "Lilly with Flowers"which came from a box for  images that I have coloured in advance. The backing paper is Pink Petticoat, I know this as I have a scrap box for every make of designer paper that I use 28 boxes at the last count ( hangs head in shame)oops!!! The sentiment band was already printed off from Pink Petticoat. The rest from my stash. I do hope you like it.

Tom's Valentine

Hello to all you lovely people. I have Decided after being married 43years I would give my gorgeous hubby a Valentine card. I have never sent him one before because I am just not a sloppy person and I just don't do Valentine cards plus we had more pressing things to spend our money on when we were younger.

So he will have the surprise of his life on Feb14th. And this is the card he is getting . Don't worry he never looks at my blog so he wont see it.

The image I have used is a digi from Crafty Sentiments called "Bear Couple"  coloured as usual with promarkers,the backing paper is Donna's from Bearly Mine Called "Spring Blossom" this is being released on 15th Feb there are two sets being released then.The sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments. I do hope you like it. I just hope Tom does xxx
