well, here's a little something I did on my Cricut (Arnie) I was playing around this afternoon instead of doing some housework..... its nothing special but at least its got me thinking again!! forgot to leave somewhere for sentiment AS USUAL but its not going to anyone anyway so 'am I bovvered'?
don't know which picture I prefer so I'll change them around later! looking at this card now I can think of several things I SHOULD have done which would have made it much nicer! Hindesight, what a wonderful thing it is!!
Well I finally made something... I'm amazed too! I can't say its inspirational but at least I've finally made a card again! this is for freinds who are celebrating their 25th Anninversary and I thought I'd keep it all silver cos its a silver anniversary DERRRR!! I made this using my newly purchased dies, theyre ok but will take a bit of learning cos theyre not as easy as I thought they would be! anyway if you're having a shufty..... thanks for dropping by!!
OMG I can't believe I'm posting this, but what the hell, I've got broad shoulders and can take the flack.. I'm only posting this cos I wanted to show some of my first efforts (pre cricut) when I actually used wallpaper to make my cards with.... 'what a tight cow' I hear you cry! and of course you're absolutely right.. I AM!! isnt it pretty paper tho? just imagine if the recipient of the card had this on her living room walls! luckily it was for my SIL so I know she doesnt have it! have you spotted the dreaded peel offs! I don't care I LIKE EM!!
well as you know I'm not one to brag but I've gained a NEW follower, so welcome Janie from El Paso, Texas and thank you for following my blog, I'd better get my finger out and produce something for my 3 followers to look at, I've toyed with the idea of dragging more of my older efforts out of the bowels of my computer (which I hasten to add is where they belong!!) whats your thoughts ladies?? failing that I'll try and make something worth looking at, but it may take time so carry on with your own stuff and get it on YOUR blogs so I can nip over and have a look at them and get some idea's for what to do with my squillions of pounds worth of stash!!! catch yer later gals xx
I liked the card I did for Lin so did another one for Lav (Lavinia) why she would shorten her name to Lav is beyond me, just glad her surname isn't Bogdanovich!! I had to do something quick so used the design again!! could be I'm just out of idea's!
this little number is for a freind of DD who has just moved into her first home, I wish the topper card showed up better, I got this card last year for something and liked it so much I took it apart and used it to make this one!! not sure if I like this card but at least the colours and bits are pretty!!
This is a card I made for my friend Teresa's birthday in a couple of weeks, she'd better remember mine this year, OR ELSE!! I wouldnt mind but its only 3 days before mine so it shouldn't be that difficult TERESA!! I started designing something on DS but then changed my mind as I'm starting to use my nestabilities more now! so I've tried to go for the 'Oppulent' look as Teresa is a true spaniard and loves all that stuff!!
Hi, my name is Sandie, but I'm better known as Barmybird for reasons that will become apparant if you get to know me!! I'm married to THE most wonderful man who puts up with me buying stash like its going out of fashion, loves everything I make (now that IS love) and just makes me so very happy, Thank you Lewis xxxxx
its not a very exciting blog but if you're here and having a look... welcome and thanks for stopping by!!
