Happy birthday

Well i watched hobbyart person Jenny Mayes make beautiful cards with her landscape stamps. I thought I will have a go at that and here is my first attempt. I used the Barbara Gray method of making a sun and when I had finished painting the fields etc. I sprayed a shimmer paint over it. I think it made a watery sun and an interesting effect. A happy birthday card for my mum in law.

Out for the day

Yesterday my friend her boys and I went to Morden hall park and walked around to see if the farm was open but unfortunately it was closed only for Monday. We played rounders/cricket and went onto a newly discovered playground, it even had a mini zip wire. We ate a very yummy picnic.
We walked to Merton abbey mills which has changed quite a bit since i was last there! What a lovely busy day.

Make a house...

Debbie adding the final decorations
It was Debbies birthday early august so as a treat I bought her a craft workshop. She chose an all day workshop called Home tweet home by Kathy Byrne. So off we went via two trains to Lingfield to our favourite shop the craft barn and it was fantastic!! We got very messy and learnt lots of different techniques and tried lots of different products we may not have normally used. Debbie said she enjoyed herself and I certainly did so a good day out. Go have a look at the workshops and try something new :)

Another Easter card

Here is another creation using hobby art stamps I found in a crafty shop in Angmering along with some other goodies oops! I used pink petticoat paper behind and coloured the images (after masking them) using promarkers. A nice simple card.

On mother's day I spent the day with mum and dad

As you can see we had great fun in dressing up in Edwardian attire. We also had fun looking at all the scenery around

and the unusual outdoor baths?

We also spotted a residential cat.

Happy anniversary

Well mum and dads anniversary is here again only 6 months before my birthday, need I say more ;) and here is a card I made for them. I would share the mothers day card but forgot to take a photo before sealing it. How many of you do that too? I can't be the only one.

This is a digi stamp from bugaboo stamps and they are funny. Well worth the visit.

As I sit here!!!

As I sit on the sofa pondering on whether to get a coffee before practicing piano after a disastrous lesson or writing labels, making resources, looking at the info sheet about the course tomorrow at work. I realise I can blog instead about what I made over the weekend, much more fun :)

I made this cute bunny card and it may confuse those who like straightness in their life but the gingham print is wobbly so difficult to get straight!!!
I hope you all had a lovely Monday and if not at least it's over now ;)

Getting it sorted

Hope you can see the photo now oops

Getting it sorted

I am now determined to try and get better at blogging now I have downloaded blog press app. It should be easier taking photos and uploading them without the need to turn on my very old computer and then connect up the camera, so no excuses!!! Using my ottlite and iPod I will endeavour to get a photo of the children's school birthday cards. Every child in my class has or will receive a Julia original :) . It is very simple and unisex so just make a load and in the drawer for the next birthday. I used popcorn but printed on Centura pearl White card.
