Quick Post of some cards

It has been a hard go this past few months with the end result being my mum is now in a seniors home..

So I have been doing some quick cards for her that I send off at least once a week.. She is in Alberta and I am in BC.. 12 to 13 hours away.. Mum has always enjoyed my cards..

These two were very quick as I used some punch outs from a British mag.. that I try and get every month..
Has lovely ideas and the paper and extra's they have with it are just great..

This one I had the image colored with copic's for a long time and when I came across it had to use with the new set of Graphic 45 stamps I got a couple of weeks ago..

Well thanks for stopping by.. hope to have a few more done this week end..

Tim's March Tags..

We had a fun get together yesterday.. Six of us this time and here are the tags we produced.. 
Had a couple of new comers to the group, they have produced some great tags for first timers.. 



As you can see everyone did two tags.. 







It is always surprising to me how we all work together and use the majority of the same items and how different they all look.. 

Be sure so let us know what you think of our fun inky day.. 
Thank yo for stopping by..

Picture Wallets

Had a fun get together with some crafty friends on Jan. 2, 2014 to start the year off right.. Debbie showed some of us that were interested, how to make these lovely Picture wallets.. I have fallen in love with them  and I do believe a lot of friends will be getting them for cards this year..

Picture of the three I have done so far.. 

Top one has been sent to my mum full of Christmas pictures of her Great Grandchildren for her 85th birthday today.. just wish I could be there to give it to her..


here it is open with the pictures.. 

This one is for Aimee her birthday is tomorrow.. she let me know hers arrived safely and she is in love with it


This is how the Wallet opens two pictures to show how much space you have to put pictures in 

Just so you know these fit in an 7-1/2" envelope and were not to expensive to mail. ( well till the new rates go into effect in March)

Thanks for stopping by .. Hope you have started your crafting year off with some great projects.
