    Making cards - Ideas (part 5) 29th Sep 10 at 11:17 PM
    Welcome to the Card Craft thread where there are many members who are new to card making as well as the more experienced members who love helping others out on their path to making cards. If you are new to this craft please do post and somebody will be along with some advice for you

    Please note this thread is now a continuation of an original thread on making cards - Part 1, the second thread - Part 2 , the third thread - Part 3, and the fourth thread here - Part 4, it may be a good idea to look these first for advice or ideas.

    £62 for a card Fabulous if you can sell them for that I think but who would buy a card for that??? The lady who made the card has a blog here, it's full of beautiful things, she is a designer for several stamp companies such as LOTV and Stampavie and demonstrates at shows. She also gives away a Magnolia stamp every weekend courtesy of Simon Says Stamp.

    Flourgirl, congratulations to your neice, I love the name Lola

    Louby, fab news about your neice, must be such a relief that she is on a normal ward now.

    Tomsmom, please name and shame if it was me, I took your card to the post office so I hope they charged me correctly

    I got most of my ironing done, tidied and cleaned a bit so we are set for a new week

    Hi everyone, I'm quite pleased with myself today, I've nearly finished a birthday card for my Mum, just got to stick the flowers down. Its not her birthday until valentines day but she's coming up to visit tomorrow with my sister so I'm trying to get her card and presents ready so that she can take them back with her. I really must get cracking with some new baby cards - s-i-l is due in 6 weeks and she decided not to find out what she's having so I need to make one of each. I find it really hard choosing baby images and paper, I think I'm going to order the cute baby and blanket one from LOTV.

    My OH also thinks the house cleans itself I'm sure *rolls eyes*

    Hi Everyone

    just flying through,

    Louby I'm so glad your niece is doing ok

    Tomsmum I don't blame you, our post office puts mine through the letter box checker thingy first

    I'm blooming hopping mad this weekend, In December I lost the diamond out of my engagement ring, it was insured and they agreed to replace it, after waiting 7 weeks for it to come back I received it on Saturday, My ring was a 0.27 carat diamond solitaire, which they had the box, receipt and a photo of, they have replaced it with a 0.05 carat flake set in a illusion setting!!!!!!!!!!!!, I have had it verified by an independent jeweller and he has given me written details saying it is not what it should be and I'll be making several heated phone calls tomorrow to get it sorted, so my advice is do not let your insurance company use IVAL they are robbing gits

    on a brighter not my tattered flowers die arrived yesterday and I treated myself to one of the new xcut multi shaper punches today to cheer my self up ( I'm still bloody angry though_

    take care
    Take care Jo x
  • melissa75
    Rainmac - that's really kind of you! I was going to place an order there tomorrow anyway so I wont bother you!!! I'll have a look at the ladybug set - I don't think I've seen them. My OH thinks that fairies come in the middle of the night and pick up his dirty clothes too!

    But looking at her blog i would say it was chipboard embossed. But what i mean are these hearts on this card

    Louby Great news about your neice.

    Jowri What a bloomin' cheek about your ring. Good luck in getting it sorted.

    KMS Thanks for the email, I'll have a proper look tomorrow. There should be something I can use.

    Evening! Just typed a long message and lost it somehow. Oh bother or words to that effect. Will try again. First of all thanks for all the tooth-healing wishes. Not too bad at all today although the hole feels enormous. Thanks also for all the freebie links etc which I've bookmarked for later.

    flourgirl - congrats on becoming a great aunt and great that the wedding invites going well.
    Louby - fab news about your niece, what a huge relief for you all.
    viclspence - sorry your physio didn't go too well, hope next one is better. Hope you won't have to wait too long for your new car.
    Melissa - please don't put off the dentist, that's what I did and look where that ended up.
    jowri - That's appalling about your ring - make sure you chew a few ears tomorrow. How are you finding the punch? I got one yesterday but finding it a bit awkward because of my (arthritic) hands. I'll have another go tomorrow.
    Rusty - I'll watch WL tommorrow. Hope your MIL did well.
    Rainmac - Plenty of ironing here if you've got any energy left. Hope your Mum's dental work goes OK.
    Marg - I think I'd have had to tell DH where his mop could go. Don't get doing too much light housework.
    Mary-op - Only 6 cards? That's major output as far as I'm concerned. Hope you find your papers soon. I had a tidy up and 'lost' everything. GL for the hospital appointments this week.
    TomsMom - Lovely birthday cards you received. Sorry but I cant help with either of those images you're after.

    Think that's more or less what I wrote before. Off for some blog hopping now.

    I've done the Black Ball Card. It's in the usual place.

    I think this was posted before somewhere on MSE but it might have been missed by people. Cath Kidston has some digital wallpapers for free download and they print off nicely for backing papers.

    Morning all, thought I'd get on early before the school run - dont know where the weekend has gone!!! I've blogged and think I've commented on blogs but didnt get chance to come on here so missed the last few pages - sorry.

    Hope all poorlies are on the mend.
    marg - hope you are doing ok
    tomsmum- ooh hope it wasnt me I just put a stamp on at home - I've got a couple of others to go so will double check them at the post office just to be sure.
    £62 for a card - Bevs cards are beautiful though but...mind just think of the stash you could buy
    Sorry if I've missed anyone - hugs to you all - will try and catch up properly later - right best go and check the boys have brushed their teeth.

    Thank you for all your wishs for the funeral, OH's cousin was a smashing chap who adored all his family and it's so sad that a really nice person should go before some of those nasty people that exist forever. Huge funeral with over 100 people there. It was good to see all of OH's extended family that we haven't seen for a few years and its sad that we meet under those circumstances. Oh asked that we all meet in the summer at our house, well, thats nearly thirty people inc, little ones for a barbie. Should be fun in our little house

    If it brightens up a tiny tad I should be able to get some pictures taken of the recent cards made and get them on the glob 18 down (US card swap time) and several Red Hat birthdays.

    Huge thanks coming your way Georgiegirl, the image of the granny on the bike will be brilliant for my Hatter chums
