Hello and Welcome...

Hello & Welcome...My name is Anne-Marie, I am a full-time administration assistant for a local housing association, I have a husband, two adult sons, and a mad dog named Fritz. I spend any spare minute crafting (although there are never enough spare minutes)...anything from making cards, papercrafts, knitting, crochet, baking and making jams, curds etc. I also enjoy growing my own fruit/veg in my greenhouse/garden.

I hope I will post something that may be of interest to you.
..thanks for visiting xx

Gruffies & Guests Challenge #3 Fit for Mum or Special Female

Hi All

Here's my half-way reminder for our latest challenge over at Gruffies & Guests the lovely theme this month is Fit for Mum or Special Female.  

The Lucky Winner will receive a £15 voucher from our Sponsor Scribble and Scrap

The Scribble & Scrap Shop 

Here's my DT creation, hope it gives some inspiration and helps you with your creations.

I have made this for my Mum for Mother's Day, using the cute Happy Hoppers image from the Gruffies & Happy Hoppers cd

Which you can get HERE

I have used a glossing glue pen on the bubbles to make them 3d, not sure if you can see from the picture but it gives a great effect.

I cut a piece out of a facecloth to make the mini towel.

Hope you like my card.  Please join us over at Gruffies & Guests and enter this month's blog challenge with your lovely mother's day cards or cards for a special female.  I look forward to seeing all your lovely creations.

Thanks for popping by Anne-Marie xx

Nephew's Birthday

Ooooohh the smell of chocolate cupcakes baking in the oven is gorgeous!  Yes, I'm baking cupcakes again...this time for my nephew's tea party tomorrow afternoon.  I will be decorating them with chocolate butter icing and mini eggs tomorrow so no photos to show tonight.  

He will be 5! Five years have gone by sooooo quickly.

I've made him a personalised birthday card...hope he likes it.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
