I would like to show you some cards that I have made this year for family and friends - I have made over 100 cards and I am going to donate 20p a card to Ovarian Cancer seeing as how that is what I had. We seem to hear an awful lot about breast cancer and a lot of people support it (and quite rightly so) but we don't seem to hear anything much about Ovarian Cancer.
The first card is using one of my favourite Whipper Snapper stamps. The dark coloured card is Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
The second one is another Whipper Snapper Stamp which I really like
and this is the inside of it - using Pink Petticoat paper.
The third one is using one of my favourite Stampin Up stamps which I have used for both Christmas Cards and Birthday Cards.
Thank you for looking

Well only 4 more days to go - well just over 3 days I suppose.
I am almost ready for it but just have to make a card for my husband yet.
I thought I would show you some of the cards I have made.
I bought the Penny Black 12 days of Christmas stamp set and then I wondered how I would use it.
I saw a star card on a website, not using the Penny Black stamps, but when I came to look for it again I could not find it (I am always doing that, I should be more organised) so I have put one together myself. This is it:-

Yet another crazy week.
First and foremost I must say "Congratulations" to my niece, Lynda, and her husband John on the birth of their new baby son - a brother for the totally gorgeous Ethan. Congratulations to my sister, Kath, and her husband Chris on becoming grandparents again. Looks like Kath just will not have time for crafting now she has got two grandsons.
On Monday Chris had to go to the hospital to see a consultant and he has to have an operation for a trapped nerve.
Tuesday my Mother in Law had to go to the hospital.
Wednesday I went for my check up and was pleased that everything is OK apart from having a painful hip, which the consultant said could be arthritis.
The consultant said that when you have had chemo it can age your body by as much as 10 years - don't know whether that is right or not.
Thursday Lynda went to the hospital and it was the funeral of my husband's sister in law (his brother's wife)
Today I had to drop my husband at the hospital for the camera "up and down" (everything is alright.) Then I had to dash to the dentist. My sister rang me to say that my niece had started in labour. I came home and had a much needed coffee and my husband's sister rang to tell me she has a benign tumour!! Then my sister rang to say Lynda had had a little boy and then I had to pick my husband up. By the time I got home I was exhausted.
Today the decision has been made to fold the rugby team that we run (at least I won't have to embroider the t.shirts) due to lack of players. I don't know what has happened to all the young lads they don't seem very interested in playing rugby - I think they must be out shopping with their girlfriends. I am very disappointed about this really but I suppose these things happen. The players, including my husband, that are interested in still playing and trying to stay together as a team have decided to move on to Brighouse and join their club.
I am now frantically trying to get all my Christmas Cards made and sent out.
Below is one that I made using another Whipper Snapper Stamp
and I love the one below. I used 2 Magnolia stamps and I am very pleased with the outcome.
The backing paper is from Pink Petticoat, the ribbon and dark coloured card is from Stampin Up and the sentiment from Craftwork Cards.
I think I need to go and have a lie down now!!
thank you for looking (if anyone has!)
