Here's one I made earlier!!

Another scheduled post already, that's twice in one week. I have to take my youngest daughter up to Durham tomorrow to get a new passport. She used hers for ID in town and it has either been stolen or she has lost it. Apparently now the police have to send them straight back to Liverpool if any are handed in and if any of the regional passport offices get any handed in they are destroyed. They then sting you for £103 to fast track a new passport. She needs it urgently as she and a friend are going to a concert in Dublin in four weeks. I wouldn't mind but she has only had her (lost) passport for about 18 months :( Still, I suppose it gets me out of the house for a couple of hours and Durham is lovely. I haven't been for about 20 years so I suppose it will have changed a bit lol. My parents used to have a newsagents and tearoom in the town centre.

So more cards for you!

 I've had this Penny Black stamp for a long time and still use it quite a bit. I love the sentiment underneath it too.  

"A friend is like a good bra: hard to find, comfortable, supportive, always lifts you up, makes you look better, never lets you down or leaves you hanging, and always close to your heart."

 One of my favourite Lili Of The Valley images. Ribbon from Ribbon Oasis and finished with some small crystals.
 I didn't realise until I opened this that it was a Papermania card making kit, I thought it was just a decoupage kit. I will use all the elements separately though and get a few cards from the pack instead of just the one.
Another very quick and easy card to make. I bought this bassinet die cut years ago but haven't a clue where from. I think it was a pack of 10 and this might be the last one but I may come across others in my quest for organisation!! I put it all together onto a piece of white hammered card then mounted it onto a piece of the beautiful Kanban paper from the Sugar Buttons paper pad from Crafted By You. The ribbon, ric rac, teddy etc were all from my stock. I made this card for one of 'my couples' whose wedding stationery I made about two and a half years ago. Baby Alex is about 10 days old now....congratulations, Jo and Phil xx

That's it for now, I shall be back soon (unless I get kidnapped in Durham lol)
