Ethans 1st Easter Card


How's this for a 1st Easter card - not only is it Ebears 1st card it is also my first Easter card - him indoors decided that we had to have an easter card for the ebear - even tho i never had one for his dad or uncle - but they did have easter eggs which ebear can't have because of his allergies.

I purchased the image from FredSheSaid - they are fab and also pre-colored which certainly made my life easier LOL - the papers are from a K miller kit which i purchased on

Ribbon Weaving

Hi all - I wanted to share this card with you - it has Ribbon Weaving on it - which my good friend Jill taught me how to do - i didnt do very well to start with and my other good friend Sue had to help me quite a bit - but once i got into the swing of it i was away - you can make the finished piece of weaving into many shapes - one of the ladies(Maxine) at my monthly card socials made hers into the shape of the number 3 for her grandaughters card and Leigh  http://charitycrafter.blogspot.com/  made her finished weaving into a heart - you can see her finished card on her blog -The digi image which i used on the front is from the Paper Shelter -  i hope you like the card and thanks for looking - all comments greatly appreciated - Kym xx

Birthday Cards for Family Members




These 3 cards were made with family members in mind - The Pink card was for my niece Charmaine - The art deco card was for my Daughter-in-Law Lizzie and the Blue card was for my Niece Nickie.



I loved making these cards - and i think the people receiving them liked them also

Another Dreasel Card - this one for charity


Maxines Coffee afternoon was amazing so many people turning up - there were hand made cakes for sale and knitted items and handmade cards which maxine and her sister Audrey worked really hard on - also there were some donated cards from myself and some cardmaking friends - I think the total that was raised on the day was in the region of £250:00




Charity marathon walkers are getting some help from hunky men.
The 11 Halstead girls and women, aged 14 to 62, have enlisted the help of famous stripping troupe, The Dreamboys, in their bid to raise money for breast cancer charities.
Dubbed the Halstead Hunnies, the women are taking part in the Playtex Moonwalk, an overnight power walk following the 26.2-mile London marathon route.
They have organised several fundraising events to raise sponsorship - including a ladies night with the male strippers

The Happy Couple

This is a piccy of my Niece Charmaine and her new hubby Joey - this is who i sent the dreasel card to as a new home card - Charmaine & Joey loved the dreasel card also the choccy that was hidden in the drawers - I wish them much love & happiness in their new life together and also with their new home
