When I need to do a quick card I can always rely on LOTV cute squares to provide the inspiration. Made this card for my sister and brother-in-law for their 2nd anniversary using a colour combo I dont usually go for.

Another birthday today. My good friend Mark is just 8 days older than me so when it gets to his birthday I know I will soon be celebrating. Used a piece of foundation pieced patchwork using a Sally Holman design for the card. A real mixture of paper and thread.

The card I made for daughter Kat's birthday didnt quite turn out as expected but I still like it. I used punches and die cuts for the matting and layering and the rose is my first attempt with my new Spellbinders Donna Salazar rose set. Think I need to go on Youtube again and watch the tutorial more carefully. The butterflies were from the K&Co goodies which friend Marilyn brought from the USA. Kat described the card as a 'definite keeper'- job done!

It doesnt seem long since I was posting last year's Mothers Day cards. I know I am lucky to have a Mum and Mum-in-law to make cards for as so many of my friends have lost their Mums. This year I used a lovely hydrangea image which I downloaded and then used the Cuttlebug (or Clutterbug as my Mum calls it) to cut some shapes. Happy with the results.

The first card I posted, I think, was a birthday card for son Jon two years ago. Time flies and my baby was 24 yesterday. Always try and do him a topical card so this year it just had to be Union Jacks- they are everywhere. I used some Papermania Portabello Road papers and ribbons and am looking forward to doing more.
I did actually make LSH (Long Suffering Husband) a card for Valentine's Day but I didnt photo it. 14th February is also my Auntie's birthday and for that I used a Muchas image from a calendar I was given and some of the lovely K&Co papers which Marilyn bought me.
