    Making Cards - Ideas for a card craft beginner (Part 3) 4th Aug 09 at 11:21 AM
    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, and the second thread - Part 2 it may be a good idea to look these first for advice

    New shiny thread.
    Not long now rainmac - I thought it was this weekend. You look after Elliot and the rest of us will craft - you can courier him to me when he's about 8 - them baby things are far too much hard work for me .

    He is very cute though .

    I get DD back later today - she'll be incredibly cranky as she won't have had anywhere near enough sleep - so will be tearing my hair out after a bit have finally made her bed up once I found it under cuddlies

    Hels - thanks for posting up my card & saying nice things about it. How are the wedding plans going?

    Rusty - Hope your son is feeling better very soon.

    Melissa - you can put me on the rota for looking after Elliot (is that the right spelling?) Think I'm near enough to collect!! Seriously, get plenty of rest if you can.

    I overslept this morning, so feeling a bit sluggish - must get moving NOW! Housework to do, cards to make, etc etc......

    Rusty - Try getting him to sip lemonade let down with some boiled water if you have any. (lemonade that is!). The boiled water takes away the Fizz and yet it's a bit sweet. I do this with my DH (& he's worse than any child when he's poorly!)

    Ooh! Mumhug - Have a good holiday, where are you going? Is your sister Ok now? I hope so.

    Thankyou Marg I will try that. He worries me sick cause normally he could eat and eat and eat at breakfast but I used one of the small boxes this morning so I knew he was having something but not too much to upset his stomach and he hardly touched it I have just made him some dinner so hopefully he will sit and eat some of that.


    Mumhug - Thankyou for your email I will try and get OH to show me how to get them on the web! I have loads from various people to get on there!! Enjoy your holiday

    Mel, please can I have a go too? It'll be wonderful to hold a little chap after five girls.

    Marg We are off to Cornwall for a week I will need it after packing for the 5 of us. My sister is on the mend now thank you for asking. She is very happy to be able to get on with being a mum.

    Rusty glad the email found you ok I am really sorry to hear that your ds is feeling worse. Good luck at the docs.

    I think I have lost my brain this week I made my challenge card and then posted it to Mel and forgot to take a pic so I guess I will have to miss it this time.

    ooh a new thread, feels strange being on page 1 instead of a hundred and something!!

    hope your DS gets better soon rusty, good luck for the Dr's

    the wife - 5 girls!!!! what on earth did you let yourself in for! If I ever have any I'd prefer boys I think, they seem like less trouble! lol

    My Mum had me, then 3 boys and said she would have had another 'tomorrow' if she could have been certain it was a girl. (Don't know why!! perhaps just fed up of boys)

    Hi girls. Couple of things - have any of you checked out the monthly comp on the Fiskarettes site? I haven't been entering as I thought you had to use Fiskars stuff but apparantly not and the organisers are worried that if they don't get more participants it will get pulled. Some great prizes each month.

    Also I wonder if you would be interested in what I've been making this week? I would think for you clever things you would be able to do it in card form? Have a peep at my blog it's my first ever tutorial so be gentle
    Huuuuuuge thank you hugs to all posters

    Thank you for all of my lovely cards - I received some beautiful ones today from Rainmac, The_Wife and Mumhug, and I opened my cards that people had sent with my nappy cake and goodies - so big thanks as well to Jailhousebabe, flourgirl and Gemm!!! They are all so lovely and have pride of place on my shelf - I look very popular!!! I'll take some pics and put them on my blog so that I can thank you all properly.

    Whoopidoo - your clicker clacker is fabulous - I might try and give one of those a go!

    Rusty - sorry to hear your little one is sick - hope he recovers soon. I'll try and put a few more pics of Elliot on my blog tomorrow - I'll be busy though - my Mum and sister are coming up for the day!!

    Louby-Lou-Lou - how did your scan go today - is it a little boy or girl?????? I can't believe you're 20 wks already. Hope you're felling better after your crash.

    Paddingtondoo - fab cards on your blog - those bunnies are so cute!

    I'm in the middle of preparing a rota at the minute for little Elliot - I'll let you know when your time slot is!!!! He has behaved very well today and has had a few hours sleep - so I've managed to get a bit of sorting done!
