As I mentioned in a previous post my daughter was pregnant and I'm pleased to say she has been  blessed with a gorgeous baby girl Lyla Mae, 9lb 10oz (ouch!)  Here are some pictures of her.

The top photo is of Lyla Mae being held by our sons daughter Amelia who is now 3 years old and loving the fact that she is now a big cousin!
The second photo is of Lyla Mae in her first dress. 
Will post later to catch you up on more of whats been going on since my last post, bye for now

Trevithic stall

Somewhat late but at last here are the photos of my stall.  Sadly the visitors were all watching their pennies this year so none of us did very well.  Still it was good fun and wonderful to see everyones lovely work.

The first picture shows one side of the tabel the second shows the other side with my sisters gorgeous cards in the stand.  The last 2 show some of the lose cards at the front most of which will be added to my Etsy shop
Hope you have all had a relaxing bank holiday weekend, my husband says he's going back to work for a rest! lol

Trevithick day

This saturday is Trevithick day in Camborne and along with all the other stalls  there will be an art and crafts sale in the community centre.  I have been busy this week preparing my crafts  in readiness.  I'll photograph it when its all set up so that you can see what I've been up to these last few weeks!

I also wanted to show you a wonderful painting that my daughter recieved from a friend for her new house.  Jess has painted this using mixed media and I'm sure you'll agree it's a stunning painting.  The colours and design are perfect for my daughters living room where she has it hanging above her sofa.

Crochet gift!

As you know my daughter has recently moved and I'm pleased to say is settling in now.  Her cat found it all a bit strange but is now happy to go out and about.  For the cats new home present I made her a kitty lay and play mat!   The free pattern can be found here. It's a lovely quick project so if you fancy getting your crochet hooks out try it.  Here's a couple of photos for you to see it.

What an amazing card

Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of posts and freebies.  I've been busy helping my daughter and her partner move house and also I've been organising new images to use in my designs with a fantastic photographer who has kindly agreed to let me use his images.  More about that in a future post.  I just had to show you this,  what a brilliant idea don't you think, well done Petrascards.
Hope you're all keeping well and continuing to enjoy your crafting.

Grand Nephews birthday

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend and enjoying a break from your usual weekly routine. Tomorrow it's a grand nephews 1st birthday, he is such a happy smiling boy.  Here's the card I've made him, please excuse the photography, unfortunately I fell over on friday when I popped to my local post office and am unable to bend easily as I'm all bruised and  caught my back! Oh well I 'll just have to be more careful and watch where I'm going! lol
I added the topper with dimensionals and then put some stickles diamond on the no. 1 and used a coral colour stickles to represent the flames coming from the rocket.  I add the rocket with dimensions to the frame with an extra dimensional at the end to keep it level.. The base card is cream colour and 5X5inch square.
