Birthday Boy!

Hello Crafters

Have you been enjoying this wonderful sunshine? I couldn’t resist going outside and gardening, my craft room was saying ‘pick me, pick me’, but I had to go outside and enjoy the warmth. It was well worth it, as the garden looks fantastic, and of course, my other half enjoys me invading his territory for a while!

Here’s the rockery that we have just started, and as we find bigger and better rocks, we shall build it up, and we edged all the lawn and hopefully in the next couple of weeks, the mess of wood at the back will become a shed! So spring has sprung and so have we!

I have been crafting though, and I enjoyed every minute, this time for my nephew’s birthday. Just wanted something clean and simple, so that was exactly what I ended up with. I love these Stampin’ Up The Open Sea stamps. I use them quite often, think they have been retired now. The numbers are Spellbinders Victorian Numbers. The clock is Marianne Clock, and the background sheet is from The Range – Craft Sensations Some Memories – brilliant value and such good quality.


My next card was again another bereavement, just seems no end at the moment, so I have made another sympathy card. This was using Spellbinders Victorian Corners, Heirloom Oval, Grand Decorative Ovals (Discontinued), Paper from Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters, one of my favourites. The stamps are from Justrite Caring Thoughts.

Well that’s all for today, but I will be back next weekend, with hopefully some fun makes.

Have a lovely evening

  1. Truly beautiful cards Kim. I love the clock on the Birthday card, and the two sympathy cards hit the right ‘note’ perfectly. They look peaceful, calm and composed, and yet filled with caring thoughts and made with love.

    Sympathy cards can be one of those cards which are so difficult to make, but you’ve hit the mark spot on. Very well done, you clever card artist. I’m filled with admiration.
    Sending love, as always ~ Cobs. x
