Box & Card

Good morning Blog friends and followers, thank you for calling by.  
My heart goes out to all those people in London effected by the horrific fire.  The emergency services and the local community have done so well.  I just hope the people are found homes ASAP 
Our son is Station Officer at a Fire Station in Dundee and as you can imagine the talk has all been about what has happened.  I thank God that no Fire Fighters lost their lives, they are the ones running "in" to a burning building while helping people to run "out"   So many lives have been devastated so quickly and in a terrible way.
I am struggling a little to find my MOJO ... checked my suitcase but its not in there!!!  
I needed a Box and gift card for a friends birthday.  I made her Birthday Card using the same paper but guess what ... Yep!! it is in the envelope all sealed and I forgot to photograph it.  
Here are my Box & Card:-
Papers are from an A4 Pad, I had a look but could not find the front cover
Base of the box just Bog Standard white 300gsm A4 card stock
A very old SB Lacy Squares Die
Butterfly made from beads, plus a bow, some wire and a border of sparkly stuff all from my stash
 
That`s it for today, 
Thank you for your visit I really do appreciate it
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend
Till next time
Hugs

A little bit of Holiday Colouring

Good morning Blog friends and followers, thank you for popping by.  
While I was having a cuppa this morning I turned on the television to see what was happening in the world.  
Oh! My! Goodness! more tragedy!!! My thoughts and prayers are with these poor people effected by the terrible fire in that block of flats in London.
I have not managed to make any cards since I returned home form holiday.  I think I left my MoJo in the Algarve.  I popped some books to read and pieces I could colour in my luggage.  I am an early riser, Hubby is not, in the time I had to myself I coloured a few pieces. 
Here is one of them.

It is a Sugar Nellie image I downloaded many years ago
I have a few downloaded, it is good to print some off  when you want them
It is coloured using Spectrum Noir Pencils

That`s it for today
I really must try to get some projects started
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs

Happy 90th Birthday Card

Good Monday morning folks, I hope you are all well and ready for the week ahead.
We are back from our holiday in the Algarve where the weather was amazing, blue skies all day every day.  I LOVE the heat but I do NOT lie in the sun, getting older wrinkles start to appear naturally I don`t want to add to them!!!  We did lots of walking, approx 5 miles every day, plus meeting with up and having days away, BBQs and meals with friends who live out there. 
Washing and Ironing baskets emptied, cases back in the attic for now!!!  Hopefully they will be down in a couple of months for my sister Hazel and I going off on our annual holiday, nothing booked as yet.
Today`s card  is one ordered by an old lady in the village to give to her friend for her 90th Birthday.
