2S4U and 2 Cards For You xxx

Did you know that ........


I know it's a bit late in the month, but better late than never, especially as this is such a good cause.

I've bloggered about this kit before but it's worth telling you about it again as it is just so gorgeous. It's the Awareness Kit designed by the very lovely and talented Summer Driggs and she has dedicated to everyone who has suffered or is suffering from this dreadful thing. I used the papers from it for this week's 2S4U challenge which you can see here. You had the option to either do a pop up or leave it flat.

So I decided to pop lol xxx

The photo is plain dreadful - I found it quite difficult to get a decent angle and you probably cannot tell it is a pop up from this rubbish pic, but it is!! The ribbons are from Hobbycraft (or Hobbycrap as my kids call it - slaps to the pair of them) and those gorgeous blooms are from Poppicrafts. The MSBP got an airing - just for a change (weeeeell I loves it a lot!!! ). I used a sentiment stamp from Butterfly Kisses and the tiny pearls are Kars which I got from Creative Pastimes. It's my MIL's birthday on 27th so I thought it would be nice for her. I'll put 'Mum' on it somewhere (maybe / maybe not!!)

It's quite weird but Richard's Mum and my Dad were born on the same day. My Dad was only 64 when he died and as a result, I find it hard to imagine him as old as Richard's Mum (83).

And now for something completely different!!!!

This is my card for Sketch Saturday. When I first saw the sketch it didn't immediately grab me as some do, but I have to say that I really LOVE it. The snowflake paper is from the new PP download, Tis The Season (fab as ever - great work Liz xx) as is the image which I coloured with PMs, creature of habit that I am, and the stripey paper is PP Little Fleurs, one of my all time faves.

The poinsettia is from Poppicrafts and if you haven't got one of these sets, you truly don't know what you are missing cos they are gorgeous and great value as well at only £5.99 for shed loads!!!

Well that's me done for today.

Have a great night and see ya soon xxxx

Bizzy wizzy Dawny ... 2 fab cards as ever :-) Sure your MIL will love the pop up one. I know what you mean about ages ... I never knew my in-laws as they died nearly 30 years ago when my husband was at college, but they would be the same age as my parents now - my husband has known my parents longer than he knew his own .. tis very strange!
