Its my Sister-in-Laws birthday on Saturday so once again I got out the stitchels stamps (seriously, how predictable am I becoming though??)

Amandas birthday card

First there is the label, which started life as a tag on an item of clothing from George at asda. I have put a rub on greeting over some puple paper (papermania). The ribbon was a free gift with a Christmas craft magazine.

Next are the stitchels flowers, once again painted with 'the works' own brand twinkling H2O's and they have gold stickles dotted around the brad in the centre.

The butterfly.

And finally, the completed item.

Auntie Sues Birthday card

Well this card was made back in January and I thought I had deleted the photo off my memory card, so imagine how pleased I was to come accross this piccie.
Once again I have used the stitchels stamps, but the card this time is a gatefold.

Well we had loads of snow (over the last couple of weeks) and I took a few photos of it.
Here (below) is the view to the rear of our house

and below is the view from the front of the house

and here (below) is the back again, but at night.
and lastly this is the roof of the conservatory with some melting snow / ice that is very slowly sliding down and dropping off (took 3 days after I took this photo for it to happen)

Retirement cards

I had to make 2 retirement cards and as I have never (honestly) had to make a retirement card before for a man I was completely stumped and therefore I took the easy way out and made them both the same.

Valentines day (again)

This is the Valentines card I made for my Husband using the Forever Friends stamp I bought a while ago (and blogged about)

Valentines day

Ok, first things first - I am sorry that I have not blogged for ages.
I have been busy and will try my best to update you.
Firstly thank you to my wonderful Husband for my beautiful Valentines bouquet.
