Dream Valley Challenge 64 - For a Child

Hi there!

I've just got back from the most wonderfully relaxing holiday in Yorkshire - absolutely beautiful! My hip is on the mend and I managed to get back in my craft room yesterday for the first time in aaaages :-) It wasn't this card I was making - I had to make sure I had this one ready before my op in case I wasn't able to craft - but I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I went to the Lili of the Valley shop on my way up North and spent all of my holiday money before I even got to Yorkshire :-) Beautiful, beautiful shop. I could have spent the whole week there. I'll show you what I bought over my next few posts.....

Anyway, it's time for another challenge from Dream Valley and this time we'd like to see your creations

For A Child!

Now, this one is easy for me. With two young boys at school I'm always making birthday cards for their friends, so this is for my little Charlie's friend, Poppy!

I've used a cute little image from Digistamp Boutique....

I've cut out the letters and number using my fave Bang! Zoom! alphabet dies from sizzix and added a little faux stitching. Hope you like!

Please pop over to Dream Valley to see what the rest of the DT have made :-)

Love 'n' hugs,

Dream Valley Challenge 63 - Monochrome


I hope you are all well. I'm recovering from the operation I had on my dodgy hip so I haven't been able to go into my craft room for a bit. Thankfully I managed to get a little ahead on my DT cards and got this one made before I went into hospital for Dream Valley's latest challenge:


I have recently been given a few beautiful vellums and I really wanted to try them out. They worked really well with some of the paper I had left from when I made my wedding invitations so I thought I'd use them to make an anniversary card for some good friends of mine.....

Another cute LOTV image.... (Did I tell you I'm going to visit the shop soon??? I can't wait!!!)

Anyway, I can't sit and type much longer - my poorly hip is quite sore when I'm sitting.... or standing.... Aw, heck, I'd better just go back to bed! :-)

Don't forget to pop over and check out the other monochrome creations at Dream Valley!

Love 'n' hugs,
