Good morning - but only just! I've been rather busy finishing a Memory Album for my friend's daughter's 21st birthday. I'm almost there, just a couple of pages to finish . I have the pictures ready to use,  it's just sorting out embellishments etc. I've taken a break to make a very quick card for a friend. I came across the Docrafts Daisy and Dandelion stuff whilst I was clearing out last week. (My craft room is even worse now than before I started!!)

My Card

It made a very quick and easy card, which is just as well since time is short at the moment.  I can scarcely believe it's Thursday already. Last time I checked it was Sunday!!! Lol! It makes a change that a guy card was an easy one to put together.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

love and hugs from Christine xx

PS I know it is now afternoon - but John interupted me to find something! Are all men missing the "find item" gene? He will open cupboard or drawer and swear that said item is not there. He hasn't yet grasped that you actually have to move things, it's not simply going to jump up into your hands! I guess after 40 years I'm not going to change him now!!!


  1. Hi Christine,
    a really lovely card. Just really fabulous the whole thing. My hubby just wandered in as I was looking at it and said the same too.
    Now I know what you mean about this missing gene men seem to have, about finding anything. My hubby can look into a cupboard,draw, freezer draw, and say I can't see what I want. If I look it's right there in front of his eyes, and when I say there it is, he says well I didn't see that.
    Have a lovely crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  5. I had a good chuckle at your DH is exactly the same and so is my little grandson! teehee...I agree with must be genetic!

    Lovely would be so appropriate for my SH who is not at all handy! Whenever he undertakes a project I just feel awful as I know I will eventually be called in to help! teehee

    Your card is so sweet...the image is coloured beautifully!

    Thanks for the nice comments about crafting with my friend. We have totally different styles and she teased me about being too picky with my carddmaking! She finishes everything she does in about 3 on the other hand, I move all the elements about till they are nearly worn out and then I glue them down. She has usually made 6 or 8 cards by then. teehee

    We get along great and she is the best neighbour and friend! I feel truly blessed to have her right next door. She has one of those really posh latte/cappucino machines...think it was maybe $1500 so I always get a fabulous latte when I craft over there!!!
    Poor thing, she has to suffer through a drip pot coffee over here! teehee

  6. Men are the same everywhere lol, hubby just asked where the dog's coat was, as it is cold here this evening, only to find he was looking right at!!
