Baby boy keepsake....

Hi all, I hope you are well & happy!
Here is a card I finished over the weekend. My friend asked if I could come up with a card for her, as a keepsake to celebrate the birth of her Nephew.
This is the result, card, box & matching tag.
Papers are all from a free baby download kit at Epson. Lil duck is from another download kit 'Bundle of Boy' found at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

Verse is one found on the Internet. (apologies as I can't remember where...)
White bazzill cs & eyelets, ribbon & buttons from my stash.

I don't make many cards for other peeps, only now & then so I'm always a lil nervous, but my friend was really pleased so I'm happy!

Thanks for popping by, Kerry xxx

Wow weeeeee........yummy, yummy goodies!!!!!!!!!

This gorgeous package of goodies came yesterday whilst I was out shopping, so first thing this morning off to collect it (wasn't sure if SS goodies were in the package at the & wow what an absolute delight to open up!!!
I think I've got a good idea who my SS is & can't wait to thank her personally but for now......"Thank you soooooooooo much!" huge hugs to you xxx

I can't wait to play with them all & feel a major distressing time is on its way...hehe....I've been meaning to get some of the Core'dinations card for a while & now.......yay.....distressed heaven!!!!!!

Trick or treat?.....

As I said yesterday before my hols I'd coloured a few images in, Martha Witch being another one. This card did take quite a while to make & lets just say hubby thought I'd gone mad when he realised what I was

Text background paper & spider with it's web are from a download paper kit 'Falloween' from Sweet Shoppe Designs.
Reason hubby thought I was mad was due to the fact that I cut the web out with my craft knife, & in a strange way I found it quite therapeutic. I thought it would add extra dimension to the card.
Sentiment is computer generated & eyelets are from my stash.

I have only attached the web with the eyelets & because the scalloped circles underneath are foam mounted the web stands proud of the card, giving extra shadows

Many thanks for taking the time to look & hopefully I'll see you again soon,

A card....yay!!...... last!
Before I went on my hols I coloured a few images in & so decided to make some cards up with them. It seems such a long time since I made my last

Anyway here we have Harry the Fireman which I've coloured with my watercolour pencils. Backing paper is Basic Grey & the flames are from a downloaded elements kit at Sweet Shoppe Designs. (can't let myself look on there too of those places where things seem to jump into the cart!)
Sentiment computer generated & bits & bobs from my stash.

Hopefully I'll pop the next one on when I get the chance.

Apologies for been such a bad blogger of late! Since returning from my hols I've been so busy & not had the chance to do much blogging, my own & looking round at others....sorry!!!
Crafting has also taken a back seat, I've plenty of ideas but just haven't had any motivation to do anything about it. Something tells me I'm not the only one who this happens to from time to time........I hope not anyway lol.
Huge thanks for the awards I have received too, I'll make sure I pop them on over the next few days.

Now, I thought I'd share a few piccies with you. Our weekend was spent travelling down to Somerset so as we could attend my cousins Wedding. What a beautiful day Saturday was!!! Having rained on the Friday our fingers. toes & everything else were firmly crossed, hoping for sunshine & boy did we get it. My cousin looked stunning as the beautiful Bride, along with the rest of the bridal party. The church, was then followed by a fab day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Huge thanks Em & Guy!!!

Me with my oh so smart lil men.

Hubby & myself. Saturday was also our 11th Anniversary, I just can't believe where the time has gone......only seems like yesterday since our Wedding day!

Now, whilst we were down south, Jools & her gang had come up to attend her Sisters birthday party, so they stayed at our house lol. Pop over to her blog & have a nosey at them in their fancy dress outfits......hehe, you all looked fab Jools!!!
Huge thanks to Jools & Neil too, as when we got home there was a beautiful card & a bottle of red waiting for us........Cheers!!!

Our gorgeous card, now proudly on show.

Many thanks for popping by & hopefully I'll get back into my crafting sooner rather than!

Washing, washing & more washing!!!.....

Hi all, I hope you are happy & well?!
Back from Tenerife where the weather has been hot, sunny & fab, to.........rain & cold!!! Well can't say I expected anything less lol. I remember saying I had a mountain of ironing before I went away, but you should see it now. I'm sure I didn't pack as much as I came back with!

Anyway, I haven't touched a computer for the last two weeks so I think I might have a bit to catch up with, hopefully I can get round to visiting everyone over the weekend & see what fab things you've been doing. In the meantime I can show you a few cards I made a while back.

I was contacted by docrafts & asked, if I was sent some goodies, could I make a few cards up so as they could be put into the next Creativity magazine, under the 'online talent spot' section. They sent the goodies, I made the cards, hey presto!

The original card which Clare 'spotted' was made for my Mom & Dad. I took a copy of the mag & gave it to my Mom today, of which she thought it was fab that I was in the mag, but really excited that it was her card in
Here are each of the cards I made,

All made with Anita's Classic Black Christmas papers.
Very yummy!!!

I also had a surprise whilst doing a bit of shopping in Asda yesterday when I got back. I tend not to look down the magazine aisle, as the craft mags have a strange habit of jumping into my trolley.....strange but true!!!.......hehe. Anyway, thought I'd have a peek, picked up the latest issue (October) of Cardmaking & Papercraft & spotted two cards on the front made by the very lovely & talented Alex, with the Kerry jo images. My response a verbal "oooooh", which was probably a lil louder than should have been judging by the look on the man walking past at the (obviously not a crafter...) So of course the mag flew into my trolley!

Alex has made five beautiful cards, here they are,
Now all I need to do is get back into my crafting & blogging, that is after the ironing has been
See you soon,
