Our very brave little man

We spent a very long day yesterday at Great Ormond Street Hospital with Louis. He has now been selected to go on the 5 year DMD Heart Protection Trial. He endured 7 hours of tests including ECG, Cardio, blood tests. lung capacity tests, numerous scans, physical tests, motor skills, he was prodded and poked all over and never complained once. He even had to sign his own consent form to take part. He is such a brave little boy and we are so proud of him.

If anybody can spare £1 you can text DUCH22£1 and send to 70070 to donate to duchennenow . Every £ donated goes to help find a cure or even a treatment for this terrible disease. Thankyou so much. xx

Just a piece of pretty card

I made this large 8x8 card very easily with just a piece of pretty card from the Hunkydory kit i was given. I attached it to a piece of American cardstock, tied a piece of organze ribbon into a bow and attached a slider. A simple greeting with a pearl added and this is the result. I just love the pastel colours, very me, lol TFL xx

Framelits Easel

Thought i would use a different colour for this card, i'm getting in a bit of a rut with all the pastel cards i make. For this card i used a sizzix framelits set for the flowers. In the set you get the stamps and the dies, great value. The sentiment is computer generated using Scriptina and a dingbat font , both of which i downloaded from dafont. I finished off with a bow and some pearls. Hope you like. TFL xx

Hunkydory easel

Similar to my previous hunkydory card made from a kit, but this time i played about and chopped it up, added a different backing card and made it into an easel. Although it's a bit bright and colourful for me i quite like it. TFL xx

Louis' had his echo heart scan yesterday, GOOD NEWS... his heart is the correct size with normal function. A great relief for all of us. He is such a brave little boy.

Rolled Flowers.

My sister has asked me to make her a batch of cards and she especially likes the easel style, good job really cos i'm addicted to making them lol. This is another really simple card. I have made some rolled flowers and put pretty pink beads inside. For this one i used the spellbinders fancy labels die as a stopper. TFL xx

Hunkydory card kit

I made this from a Hunkydory kit that i had forgotten about. I got the kit for my birthday from my daughter and found it whilst i was searching for something else. I made the card as per the instructions but just added a leafy flourish, a few flowers , some gems and a Craftwork Cards sentiment, just to tart it up a bit. lol (Sorry about the naff photo) TFL xx

Another Easel

Same ole, same ole, lol, but i just can't stop making these easel cards. I used American cardstock again and some simple die cut shapes. Just a bit of layering, a large rose and a few gems to finish. I used a big bow again as a stopper. My tying of bows is getting better, although i think i might invest in a bow maker. if anybody has one, i would love your verdict on it. TFL xx

Swirly butterflies

Morning everyone. Sun is shining here today, but it's blimming cold, i was freezing in bed last night, think i need to get some thick jim jams lol. Well on to the card. As you can tell i'm in love with this butterfly die. I used mostly the same ingrediants as my last card but just a different layout. I love the backing paper, think i will have to get another pad before it's discontinued. Hope you like it. TFL xx
