Hello everyone, 
I hope you are all well and happy with your weather.
Here is Glasgow it's been remarkably warm (for us), not always sunny but warm. It's been great. Ellie has had a fab time in the sun at the park (many, many times at the park!!!) I have added a page on the blog for adding pics of Ellie as otherwise the blog will be of her. I will let you know when I add more, if you are interested.
I have been trying to craft for a time each day but it has been difficult, as the weather has been so nice.
I made my dad's birthday card for later this month. Poor dad his birthday is so close to Father's day - he doesn't get spoiled as often as he would like. ;-)
I used an LOTV stamp and some papers from my scraps box and a couple of twine tied buttons. I like it a lot and hope he does.
This is my entry to ABC Challenge which is Masculine cards this week.
My goal this week is to make his Father's Day card
Off to the museum and the park with Ellie tomorrow so I hope you have a lovely day and I will be back later in the week.


  1. Your Dad is going to love this card. What an adorable Teddy spelling out the letters, and your papers and card shapes are so good together. Loved the checked border with the dotted papers, and adding the buttons was a perfect finishing touch. I'm off to see Ellie. TFS & enjoy your nice warm weather. Hugs

  2. Hi Alison, sorry I haven't been making the rounds as much as I would like, have been busy with Granddaughters, end of school, begining of swim lessons.......well, you get the picture LOL Only getting a few minutes here and there to create.
