Dream Valley Challenge 85 - Inspired by a song/movie/book


Hope you are all well and you're enjoying some beautiful weather! I love this time of year and being able to get out and enjoy the garden or going for a drive somewhere new. My hubby loves going out somewhere in the car so this LOTV image was perfect for his birthday card and for our new challenge at Dream Valley:

Inspired by a song/movie/book

The song is, of course, Driving in my Car by Madness (I can't even type it without wanting to add in the horn noises....!)

A close up of the image...

I love the creations put together for this challenge by the rest of the DT. Make sure you pop over to Dream Valley and join in the fun!

Love 'n' hugs,

Dream Valley Challenge 84 - Monochrome


Hope you are all well. I've had a lovely weekend including a really nice Father's Day picnic. Paul had to work so I took the boys to meet him in his lunch break and we went to the park for some fun and a lovely picnic - beautiful! :-)

The challenge this time at Dream Valley is


I'm going through a bit of a brown thing at the moment - virtually every card I make has a shade of brown in it, so when I was making my monochrome card it just seemed to be the way to go!

Some of you may know that we're in the process of selling our house and moving to be nearer to my Mom. The amount of paperwork involved is horrendous - not at all the sort of paper I like to be working with! So when I eventually got some time in my craft room I was totally in the mood for duffing up papers and letting them know exactly how I feel about them at the moment :-) This is the result....

This card is for the anniversary of my very good friends Yvonne and Graham - I hope they had a lovely day!  They have a huge amount of books so this LOTV image was perfect for them :-)

Anyway, I have a fair few cards I need to be making at the moment so I'd better get off the computer and back into my craft room :-)

Don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley to join in all the fun!

Love 'n' hugs,

Dream Valley Challenge 83 - Baby!


It's time for another challenge over at Dream Valley and this one is one of my faves.....


There's so much I love about this challenge. I love being able to do a really cute little girlie card.... And I LOVE this LOTV image.... And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! that there's a gorgeous new person in the world :-) Congratulations, Robyn, on the birth of beautiful Frankie. I hope she brings you endless joy!

It was really nice to get my flowers out again too. They don't see much daylight these days with all the boys cards I end up doing :-) That's the way it goes for a crafting mom of three boys!

A close up so you can see the sentiment better and all the sparkle..... You can just make out the clouds in the background....

Anyway, I hope you like it. Don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley to join in all the fun! :-)

Love 'n' hugs,
