Good evening everyone, well what a day today, My lovely hubby who is disabled and can't do an awful lot had a work related interview today at the job centre, so he couldnt take his pain killing medication last night so we both had an awful night and were awake for most of it. Then up early so I could get him ready. Only to receive a phone call from the job centre five minutes before we were due to leave saying because we are appealing against this rather obserd plan to send him back to work and we did not have to go, I can't te;ll you how very annoyed i am at this government who clearly don't know what they are doing.

Anyway after calming down and having a sleep this afternoon, I have been able to craft a few cards. The first card is for Daisy at Tsunami Rose Designs

I have used Black card for the base and Green card on the top I have used a border punch for the three borders at the bottom, Two punched Black flowers with tiny green gems in the middle and an image added lightly colored with Glitter gel Pens. To finish off a Thank you sentiment.

Ther second card is for Flutter By Wednesday's and DYSU

For this card I have used White Card inked around the edges with a pink ink. I have then used Nestie Dies in two different sizes, these have then been embossed and again lightly inked. The image is from my stash, thought she was rather cute and apt for this challenge. She has been colored with promarkers. I have placed three dusky pink flowers with pink and white spotted buttons added to the centre of the flowers. To finish off i have used a For You sentiment xx


  1. Two lovely cards Abbie. The image on the second one is so cute, but I particularly like the black and green one (possibly because green is my favourite colour!).

  5. i love the green and black card, and i empathise with you re the job centre, i wish someone with a bit of common sense would come into a position of power to sort these numpties out. its a joke but the more worrying thing is it has real negative effects on innocent and lovely genuine families. don't get me started i could go on for ages. hope your appeal goes ok. louise xx ps i am now following.

  6. OOOh thank you so much ladies for your kind words xx
