Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Happy Birthday to................

..........Me!  Yep, the old biddy is 52 today, even deafer and blinder than yesterday, but another day wiser (treadmill lol). In true Speed fashion we'll be starting with the smoked salmon and champagne brunch.Then out for a bit of boozing late this afternoon followed by a help yourself Chinese buffet in town. It's race day in Chester today so we'll have to find the pubs that aren't full of punters in frocks (and that's just the men lol). I've got some stash from my sis and lots of stash money to spend. I did a bit of crafting yesterday as i dont think i;ll be doing any tomorrow with the shaky hands!
I didn't make this for anyone particular but to satisfy my obsession with making boxes and notecards. The musical card is from Payper box and the peel offs were leftovers from making wedding invites.
The little cards are only 4"x4". I just love making them, they don't need much "filling up". Well that's all from me today apart from.................

..........The friday weigh in!! Are you ready for this.....9st 6lb,  2lb off after scoffing for Queen and country last weekend!! That's 10lb in total. There is a really funny reason for this, if you didn't read my last post scroll down and get ready to wet yourself.
