Sorry my compter has been off but here is soe cards I have made

Hi all, can I firstly say a huge sorry for not blogging lately but I have had to reboot all my computers at home so I have been so busy sorting them out.
I have also made a few cards, I went to make my mothers day cards and guess what I had no ink left in my printer and of course I had left it too late to order some so i had tomake 3 cards without a printer. I didn't relise hw much I relied on the printer so I have decided not to order any ink for a week and see what cards I can come up with just using stash.
The first one is the card I gave to my mam I stitched this card with a pattern from Sam I used red ang gold metalic thread and the butter flies are 3d peeloffs from Wilkinsons.

This one is for Ians mam. Made with 3d peeloffs again on lilac card. I used a punch I bought ages ago and hardly use and put holographic paper behind it. I then finished it off with white ribbon and gold border and corner peeloffs.

I made this one for my Brother to give to my Mam. I used a digi stamp is Archie a freebie from Little Musings, I coloured him using promarkers and made a shaker card with a bubble front, added a couple of peeloffs and a flower. Archie even looks a little bit like my brother Spencer lol

These are another couple of stitched cards from Sam
The first one was an order for a friend and the second one for my Mam to give a friend a work who lost his Mam on Saturday.

I was like a kid in a sweetshop lol I bought flowers, gems, peel offs, card, you name it, I even bought myself the oblong Nellie cutter so I had to make this quick card when I got back
I used the Swiss dots cuttlebug folder then the largest Nellie cutter, the image was one I already had colured with my promarkers, The ribbon was my bargian, it came wrapped around the pyjamas I bought the kids for Christmas all I had to do was iron where the bow had been tied lol the flower and buttins were from my stash

My great Valenties day.

Valentines day was last Sunday the same Day as Chinese New Year. Now normally me and Ian don't celebrate valentines he says why just use one dy to tell somebody yu ove them you should tell them every day - Sweet I hear you say, but wait till you hear what he did. We arrange to take the children to Stowell Street (Newcastles China Town) where all of the chinese resteraunts are to watch the New Year Dragon dance (the dragon starts at the top of the streets and dances into each resteraunt for good luck) the kids were all excited and told their teacher and all their friends. Did we have a good time I hear you ask...... We didn't even get there Ian forgot and went fishing with his friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I reminde him al I got was Oh I completely forgot about that. Not Sorry I will fish another day or even would you mind if I go fishing instead just oops I forgot!!!!!!! Needless to say we have not been speaking all week lol

A bit of fun

I made this quick card just for fun. I was hunting around for something and found my SU old people stamps. I bouth these when I hosted a SU craft party at my house. I loved them at the time but for some reason forgot I had them and have never used them. Now I remember why I love them and I have left them in clear veiw so I don't forget about them again.
