Time to share

These are the birthday cards I've made over the past few months.

I also made a wedding card: 

A Baby card and a card for Grandma!

Lots of goodies from Greatest View.

Haven't been able to work out how to download photos from my ipad!

School holidays now hopefully the creative urge will hit me!

Far too long!

I can't believe that nearly three months have passed and I haven't added anything to my blog. Could be because I've returned to work 4 days a week, which hasn't been too bad but the money makes it better! Bought myself a present an iPad - quite excited and now it should be quicker to add photos etc to my blog! Of course I'll have to find time to be creative !!! I have made several cards over the past months and I'm half way through one now so hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow and then I can share all creative exploits.

So until tomorrow Cheerio

Birthday Card for Mum

I've had a lot on my mind of late and just haven't been able to settle and tackle any scrapping, even though I have some wonderful goodies from Greatest View.

I used a few in my card (the pin, rosette, birthday badge) that I made for mum's 81st birthday. She loved it - or at least she said she did. 

Thanks for looking

Lion Safari

I was determined to complete a LO on Sat and this is it!

I've left the journalling tag blank so that Rob or Farah can complete it - they are the intrepid explorers with the big cats! They are both cat lovers and to have this experience with the King of Cats was the ultimate. There was only one other person on this safari and two guides. These are young lions, one was on its last safari adventure as it was nearly 20months old and it would be too dangerous for it to continue on these walks!! The guide only told Rob while they were on the walk! He watched it even more intently on hearing that.

Rob & Farah are great photographers and have some incredible photos of their African experience. They witnessed a lion kill quite graphic but still incredible. This is just before the kill.

Here is a selection of some of their pics:

Until next time

Wedding Card

Having trouble finding time and motivation at the moment to scrap! Enjoying browsing lots of your blogs and hoping the creative urge will hit me.
Any way start out small - made a wedding card for one of Marg's friends. Simple but I quite like it.

Looking forward to your comments.

Mother's Day Card

I've been out of action for a while but trying to find time to get back scrapping. I did make a very pretty engagement card but you'll have to take my word for that as I forgot to take a photo before giving it away!
Any way this is the card I've made for my mum :

Just a quick LO that I was going to do for a challenge but missed the deadline an April Stuck?! challenge.

Thanks for looking

the top

This is for a "Stuck Challenge" the photo though not of very good quality has very special memories. In 1987 we all climbed to the top of Mt Dromedary, it was quite a climb over 9kms return and Margaret was only 6, Mathew 7, Robert nearly 9 and James 11.

Here is the sketch:
