Hello Blog friends, followers and passers by.  Hope this finds you all well and TicketyBoo.  If not I send a few (((((hugs))))) in hope they might help along the way.
Sorry, I am still not Blogging that much, better things going on at the moment.  I am still looking in and commenting when I can.  If I have missed commenting on your Blog I do apologise, it is not intentional and I will get round to you soon, I promise.
Here is a very quick baby congratulations card I did.  Its for the Grandparents of the new baby.  I did one for the baby ...  guess what!!!  Popped it in the envelope, sealed it and forgot to photograph the card.   Bet you can work out the new baby is a GIRL!!!

Oldie for Friday

Hello Blog friends, hope you are well.  If not I am sending some (((((hugs))))) in hope that they help.
I am not Blogging much just now, but I do try to keep up with what you are all doing.
I have had offers for days away  ....  that`s something I definitely do not refuse.  I will tell you about them later.
Oldie for Friday was started by Erika over at:-  http://snappycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/
Its for fun, anything Crafty you have done in the past, pop it on your Blog and lets have a look.
Here is mine for today:- 

A little box of Buttons:-
I made a box to fit under the Die Cut.  I know the box was about 3 inches deep to hold all the buttons.
SB Lacy Square Die and SB Square Die to cut out the centre.
Acetate over the aperture
Mieflower Organza Ribbon tied in a triple bow
Selection of Buttons to make a Button Necklace
Someone asked for the Button Selection to make their own Necklace rather than buy one ready made. This was how I presented it.

That`s me for today
Thank you so much for sticking with me I really appreciate that
Till next time
Hugs

More Shoes

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  If you are ill, or just a bit "down" I send you some (((((hugs))))) in hope they might help.
I am not at the computer much these days however I do like to keep in touch with you all.  Keep up to date with all your wonderful creations, my goodness there have been some wonderful makes.  
I am still making Bags and Shoes.  The Bags hold quite a few Mini Products and have been requested for Teachers Gifts.  I  made a "Template" for a Shoe Box which holds a pair of the Shoes.  I have been putting Bottles of Nail Polish in each Shoe. 
Here is a Pair of Shoes and matching Bag:-

 Shoes in their Box
Just sold a Pair

Shoes and Bag made using the £3.00  Paper/Card Stacks from the works.  I really wish I had bought more of these Paper/Card Stacks.  They are nowhere to be found now, typical, just typical!!! 
I embossed the base of the bag with an embossing folder to give a " Skin/Leather effect"
SW edge Die from one of the Gemini Range of Dies for the edge of the Bag.
SW Bow Die, pearls from my Stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really do appreciate you calling by
Till next time

Simple Card for a very Special Couple

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well.  If not I send you some (((((hugs))))) in hope they might help.  Please help yourselves, plenty more where they came from.
Very quick post today, busy busy as always. Mind you better that than nothing to do. 
My niece Gillan gets marries at the end of July.  I made this card to send her and Andrew their gift.  We gave them money, Gillian has had her own house for years and has everything "Just So"  Andrew has moved up from down south, he also had his own house.  As you can imagine they did not need any of the "basics" ...  they put the money towards a new Lawn Mower.  
Their whole meeting and marrying is just a wonderful "fairytale" we are so happy for them.
Here is the card:-
