Opinion please....


Afternoon girls, hope your day is going well so far...
I made this last week when I was feeling unwell, and not really up to card making as such...

The material I have had for ages, same with the beads etc;...like most of my stash it's been around a while..lol...
Problem is I made it with someone in mind, but then thought twice, is it REALLY acceptable as a gift....not sure and would like some honest opinions, I am not easily offended....lol...
Thats all girls, I am at a loss....lol...speak soon.xxx

I used up all my odds and ends in this, so I will just show you the out-side, very shabby inside..I can't subject you to that..lol....
The Create label and clock were freebies from my travels, if I can find the source I will
point you to it...sorry...

Sweet smell of Roses......

Hi everyone, are you all still enjoying the sunshine, it has gone abit over cast at the moment, but I live in hope..
I have felt so much better since the sun came to play, what about you......
I am only popping on to show a couple of my gorgeous roses that have bloomed over the last few days, the smell
in the garden is just beautiful, even in the evening the fragrance is gorgeous......
                                   
I have no name for this little beauty, it's been in the garden a few years now, I just love the colour...

                                               
This is 'Just Joey'....
it's a cabbage rose and smells like heaven....you can tell I'm lovin all this..lol...

Just had to share, enjoy the rest of the day girls..xxxxxx

Mia's Birthday Book...


Good afternoon and what a glorious day it is here in the NW...
As I am certain, everyone will by now know Mia turns 11 today, 
Here are a few 'rough' pictures of the book I have been trying to put together this last week....
I'm exhausted from sorting through bags and bags of pictures and then the tears...lol...
not the best, sorry to say, but sure you'll get the idea....
sorry for the 'blurry' pic
of all the days....
This is the front..
Lots of Tags, every picture tells a story..lol...
Put pockets inside front and back covers for extras...
This is a picture of Carla and Matt playing the 'waiting' game...lol...


Carla with Mia just born...
Matt just a few hours afterwards...

First Christmas, the only one she would get to spend with my Mam..
She was the greatest gift for the last months of Mam's life...for that alone I am thankful......

Here she is, my beautiful girl..
Forever my Heart Mia..
Happy Birthday..sweet girl..xxxxxxx

Hope you like , she was over the moon, better than a card anyway..lol...
Have a lovely day and thanks for the visit..xxxx

Morning to All,
Hope you had a good week and a fab week-end is what your looking forward to...

Use 2 or more Dies on your creation...

We have a fabulous new sponsor this week
CraftySentiments
with 3 digi's to give one lucky winner...
I must apologise for not using one of the fab images from our sponsor,
my excuse is that this card was already done and ready to go for a friends birthday,
and I didn't have a chance to make another this week...sorry...
So, here is my card, don't you just love that image though, so cute....
We also have our GDT call, now changed to a 3month stay with us, as a full team member, I promise you won't be sorry,it is so much fun being part of this team....so get your GDT next to your name when you enter the challenge...

I am entering this into the fabulous challenge at
Papermill blog..you can win a box of there brilliant card...
sounds perfect to me....
*******************************
That's about it for now, I have had a busy week...
It's my beautiful Mia's Birthday tomorrow, she will be 11...for those who don't already know this..lol....
She had hinted she would prefer a book to a card from me, like the one I made for her Mum when she hit 30....guess who didn't think she was really serious until Monday....
what a week, how many pictures can you take of one child in just 11 years...
ALOT...
omgoodness me...I am on the last leg and exhausted by it, my room is a war zone and when I sat to try and write for her, I went blank, in between bouts of  REALLY crying...lol....I mean serious stuff.....
GRANDCHILDREN....who knew...lol..
So,I will try and finish the pages today and then write all the little Tags etc; ready for Saturday....I will actually be glad to see it go..lol....and I should have made it bigger...but hey-ho....
Have a wonderful week-end...
Lots of hugs...
Janette.xxx
