    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.

    Hi! Dallam and welcome to the bestest cardmaking forum ever! That's me over on your blog, just left you a comment.

    Marg, my entry for your challenge is over on the glob and I'll pop back later and catch up with everyone.

    I'm getting ready for a large tea party this afternoon and I've made a cake and not dived into it yet. Thank you flourgirl, I used your recipe for Apple Cake from over on CP. I've had strict instructions from OH that I'm to bring it back home after, he'll be waiting at the door with the custard in his hand.
    Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning the devil says, "OH CARP, SHE'S UP"!

    PONR - I know its a shame some of it needs to be spent on the roof, but at least I have some for stash.

    Dallam - Welcome, your card is lovely, I am also a follower now too.

    I was speaking to someone yesterday about cardmaking and they said 'it must save you a fortune!' Well I just burst out laughing, because I spend more on cards now than I ever did before!

    melissa, your be fine, im sure, the older ones will want to help by passing you nappies when doing changes etc, i always find the youngest seems to grow up slightly and become a bit more independant when a new baby comes along. its hard because you need to get that happy medium between not leaving them out completely but also showing them that the baby needs mummys attention aswell. ive always bought a little present for mine for the birth day so the new baby can give there siblings presents. another thing which has probably helped me is ive had all mine at home, so ive not been gone for a day or so. im so sure you will be fine though , and you have a girl to look forward too, all those pink and frill dresses after having boys, you will love it

    georgiegirl could you please email your card to me,as my comp wont let me open your blog it just keeps closing down for some reason? thanks xx

    Well after my 2 day extended birthday celebrations I decided yesterday that I really wanted the Create and Craft pick of the week, ended up spending £60 on it with adding the bits on too, but its on flexi pay and looks SOOOO cute!

    Hmm, thought I'd quoted Melissa75 as well, but seems i didn't, unless there is a limit on quoted folks - Fortunately, the legoman digi is available from one of our own.

    Hi ladies,

    Can anyone tell me which card it is that they are always advertising on Create and Craft please? I need some more card, i usually use Rymans smooth but i can't get to one until the week after next, so need some asap or can anyone recommend some i need it to use with promarkers?

    Also is the Create and Craft Club worth it? I am thinking about joining it and am soooooo tempted by the pick of the week!

    And last thing Would one of you more experienced ladies take a look at a card i have done? (i can't post it on my bl*g yet as it is a DT card) I'm not sure about it and can't put my finger on whats wrong with it and to make things worse it has to be uploaded tonight!

    Hope everyone is well

    OK, own up, who stole the last few days

    I don't know where this week has gone, had an opticians appt, DH has had two hospital appts in the last week. His radiotherapy consultant said it went OK and wants to see him 4 months. His haemotology consultant said radiotherapy went according to plan and wants to see him in 2 months. Again no guarantees, a reminder that it is not curable and he hopes the latest treatment brings about a longer lasting remission. DH is taking a while to get back to normal after the radiotherapy and doesn't seem to have bounced back like he did with his chemo and his bone marrow transplant. Fingers crossed he gets back to normal soon.

    Again I'm so far behind I haven't managed to catch up on all the pages but I did notice

    Tomsmum [/B]- I take it no package from me still? I'm going to put in yet another complaint - I bet the cheeky so n so's send me more postage stamps! Just wish they'd sort out the sorting office as it would appear that the problem lies there!
    Originally posted by wanna-b-rich
    Sorry to snip you. No WBR, no package has arrived. What must be going on at your sorting office for this to keep happening? Sounds like they know they have a problem there. It must be really annoying for you and everyone else having post going missing. The only time we've ever had anything not turn up before is when it's been sent to the old address and the new owners haven't given it to us and we live about 6 steps from their back gate!

    Just wanted to say I got paid today for the Wedding Invites and the lady was soooo pleased I got a £20 tip!!!! Whooo Hooo!!! feel a little spend coming on now

    Sorry, snipped again. Well done Flourgirl, they must have been very happy with your invites (and seeing your cards in the flesh I know how beautifully made they are).

    I see lots of new names so welcome to all newbies.

    Well done winners

    I've lost my motivation lately, not made a card since the Christmas ones. Really must get botty in gear soon with the family birthdays coming up.

    Hope you're all well. Big hugs. I'll try and keep up a bit better this week .

    kms I use the Neenah card from C & C or Crafters Companion or Craftwork Cards Digital Paper which I prefer for printing background papers. Either aren't bad for Promarkers

    The Hunkydory POW is gorgeous but I only bought the dog one as I have lots of doggie friends and I also bought the stamps which look brilliant. There's an awful lot in this kit. I also put in heavy stuff to warrant their hefty postage. I've been a member for some time now and get some good ideas from them. If you do decide to get the POW save a couple of the programs on sky for checking back on. The colours are gorgeous.

    Right, Wifey, get yer 'at on and go tea party!

    Afternoon all
    I am a footie widow today 3 matches on sky that DH must watch
    so I have been blog hopping and had a lovely hour going oooo and arrr at the lovely makes and have left comments.

    Marg when does your challenge finish please? I have a "water" card done but its for a birthday for someone who may well look at my blog.

    KMS26 I answered your e mail

    We have been a bit lucky this past week winning £80 on the lottery and 50 on the premium bonds.... more spends for the SECC craft show next month.

    Would you belive it there is now a window in the footie watching schedule so " are we taking the dog for his walk now" !!!!!
    since the pm walk is my main exercise I need to go.... now.... back later
  • THE-WIFE
    TomsMom, everything crossed for DH. Good news that he doesn't have to go back for 4 months to radiotherapy. Each little gap of time will make you feel more positive.

    Congratulations to our latest winner Fab prize

    Thankyou for all your lovely comments ladies, much appreciated xxx

    Wifey I hope your guests like the Apple Cake and you save some for the custard loving man in your life

    TomsMom I'm glad to hear your DH's treatment was successful, it must have been such a worrying time for you both. I'm sure that the tender loving care you will be giving him will soon have him back on his feet and getting under yours lol

    After spending the last couple of hours on a card and nothing being right I have packed it all up and put the bits in the scrap box!!! Why is it that we have times like that? Grrrrr.....
