Gone Fishing

Another fortnight has flown by and it's time again for another challenge over at  Ooh la La
Our theme for this fortnight is  It's a Man Thing, and this is a card I have made for my Brother's Birthday.   He is mad on fishing and even comes to France on fishing holidays, good job his wife loves fishing aswell.
The DT have some fabulous creations this week to help inspire you so do pop over and take a look
The paper and image are from the  Boys to Men CD  and the Birthday Wishes is a stamp
the silver looking spots are stickles.  We shall have new freebies on the website tomorrow and we have new embellishments in the shop with more goodies being added very soon.
Please join in if you can inspiration for mens cards always come in handy, they are a difficult lot at most times.

Perfect day so far

What a fabulous day I am having and they say it always comes in three's

It started early this morning, my daughter and I are arranging an Anglo/French Exposition/Market
here in France which we shall be holding every 2nd & 4th Saturday in the month starting in April
We have lots of interest from both French & English and it sounds an exciting venture
We have lots of different stalls ranging from Cards, Craft, Breads made in a traditional French bread oven, Preserves, Jewellery, Neals yard, Wood & Leather gifts, Scarf Sensations &Patchwork to name but a few. 

Then as I arrived home a beautiful vase of Tulips were delivered from my Son who lives in the UK for Mother's Day, which was the best surprise ever.



 Wishing all Mums a wonderful day tomorrow

Four Legged Friends

Good morning and I hope it's a blue sky where you are today, I always find I feel so much brighter when the sun is shining and it certainly is here today

This weeks challenge is all about our 4 legged friends and I have chosen these adorable kittens for my card this week, it's for my son inlaws Mum who loves cats

The entries we had last week were all amazing and so many thank you all so much for taking the time to join in with us, I hope you like our challenge this fortnight too and I look foward to seeing your creations

Now on to mine, this is a simple card, I added the wording on in my graphics program and just mat and layered onto some beautiful shiny red card

If you like Vintage you will love this CD which was a sell out on C&C last month, there are all sorts to choose from, cute animals, birds, beautiful floral, vintage fashion, and some lovely Xmas images too, you can purchase your copy   here
