It`s Monday again and hubby has gone off to London so I am free to craft as much as I like today :O) and the sun is shining and the horrid wind has died down at last. I spent part of yesterday looking at my cd`s and also challenge blogs and came across one for animals on Carols blog and this is what I have come up with in the early hours of this morning. Must admit I have made it before and liked it so much I had to do it again which is unusual for me.

Ruby Rose...... Mummy.     My granddaughter Ashley asked me if I could make a card for her friend Charlene who had a gorgeous baby girl about 2 months ago. She wanted a chrismas card from Ruby to mummy and this is what I have come up with, just need to find the verse to go inside now. I used a small picture of Ruby as an inset for part of the card.
The images came from
My Craft Studio - Free download
I decoupaged the centre image

Crimbo Cards..

What a week of crafting I have had, housework went out of the window lol until tomorrow when hubby is back from London. I don`t really get a chance to craft at weekends so have to make up for it during the week. These are just a handful I did today.

All the images and sentiments were set up in
My Card studio -
Magic of Christmas
Then printed straight onto the cards

Card for Grandson

Like myself and my hubby my gorgeous grandson Ryan is an ardent Arsenal fan and I always have to incorporate them in the card. So my mind went into a whirl thinking what can I do without it looking girly. Decided to have a look at the My Craft Studio cd`s . The original picture was in blue gawd help me if I did it that colour lol. Changed the picture to red and added a larger bauble for the middle then put the text inside and also added a small image of Ryan. It took me longer to add all the circle peeloffs than it did making the image up.
I hope you like it. :O)
