Wishing you a wonderful day!

Morning, back to share a recent make. I love the colours on this one!

Wooftastic Birthday!

Morning, back to share a card I made for my partner for his birthday. Most of you will have no idea that almost a year ago we got a puppy, he is now 1 and the most amazing boy ever!! .... oh and we also got a 2nd puppy recently, he is only 16 weeks old and half brother to our big lad! They are German Shepherds and both gorgeous! 

So it only seemed fitting to make a dog themed card, I had some pollyanna pickering card kits with lots of different breeds, put it all together and here is what I came up with! 

Hoping I get this right, it has been years since I entered any challenges but time to start getting out there again! 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Happy birthday!!

Morning, its been a few days since I last posted. These 2 cards were requested by the children for their Dads birthday which was tuesday!!

This burger card is 8x8 inches and all of the papers and image are part of a second hand lot I picked up cheap. I believe they are Hunkydory. 

This one was a bit different, I have done a different kind of fold but not thought it through properly!! I didn't think about an envelope to fit but saved by tesco envelopes (the big 50 packs for normal letters!) 

Papers: Echo park
Beer glass - PTI die 
letters - Cosmo Cricket tiny alphas.

New Year - New Start!

Morning, it's been over a year since I posted on this blog, I originally set up a new one as Blogger ate my pictures, every single one of them from years of blogging! I  then posted for a while on the new blog but with only a tiny amount of followers it seemed pointless as those also followed me on my facebook page (Highland Handmade). So now we are in a new year and I am going to try and blog again, and join in with challenged and made more of an effort all round! 

So that brings me on to todays card, I won't babble on much, but put basic details about the card. 

Image - Digistamp Boutique - Cute Dino
Papers - Basic Grey Archaic
Twine, and sentiment  are from my stash. 

Thats all for today!

Snow princess

Morning all, back to share these couple of cards. The top one if for Maddison from my dad and step mom, I always make their cards and then usually send them in time for birthdays and christmas as the postage costs from Bulgaria would be as horrendous as royal mail! The second card is my card to them!
