Aqua Mist - Lovely Layers!

I received my PTI order just yesterday and, as usual, I am absolutely delighted with it! I just love, love, love this set and, of course, the dies to match!  It is wonderful to be 'off school' and 'on holidays'.  So far I have been really busy and had lots of lovely visitors - what a fantastic start to the summer!  On top of that, I have got up early every morning so far and made the most of the whole day - that of course included a little time yesterday and today in the Craft Room.  I have not had the opportunity to blog really since Easter as my eldest daughter used my crafting space as her 'Study Room' and I wanted to leave the space to her as she focussed on the first part of her GCSE's.  How great it is to be crafting again!  Here is my next effort!

50th Birthday Party Surprise!

My friend Maureen celebrated her 50th birthday at the weekend.  On Saturday evening we had Maureen, her husband Tom and some other friends for a surprise party for her!  We had a brilliant evening.  How lovely it is to spend time celebrating and catching up with old friends!  Here are the photos -

Mother's Day Card


I can't believe it is round to that time of year again - Mother's Day! It just feels like a snap of my fingers since I was making last years' card. I love using this Waltzingmouse stamp set - it lends itself so well to colouring and especially with Copic Markers.

Silver Wedding Anniversary







Do you like my ensemble - I made them the same colour as my bridesmaids dress was 25 years ago yesterday?















Congratulations, Maureen and Tom on 25 years of wedded bliss - and many more to come!






















Our friends Maureen and Tom celebrated their Silver Wedding Anniversary yesterday and we were fortunate enough to share in the celebrations! We joined our friends at Ardtara House - a wonderful Country House in Upperlands, Co Londonderry - and as usual had an amazing meal and a fantastic night out.

A Modern Christmas Card



I do so love the 'Clean and Simple' style and here is my clean and simple Christmas card. It was quick and easy to make - perfect for Christmas!

The True Meaning of Christmas







Isn't it so important to remember the true meaning of Christmas? I was looking for a new stamp which did just that. I thought that this stamp (which I found at the November Stitch and Crafts Show in Belfast) fitted the bill just perfectly.

Christmas Cards - at last!



Things have been pretty hectic - and stressful around the Smith household lately and I have just not had very much time to craft. However, I have managed a few Christmas cards and here is one of them. I hope you like it.
