WOYWW #356 - Bird Die

Gosh second week in a row.

I spurred on another lapsed desker last week, who in turn has spurred me on this week.

Thanks Cindy.

From last week's freebie peacock die I made some more peacock cards.

I made some Anniversary cards too, I used toppers I had bought yonks ago.

They are all ready to post.

Also made a few Easter cards for next year so I can breath a sigh of relief like I did this year when I found some already made in my card box!

Then I got out my new number dies and made a couple of little girl's cards as well.

All set up for the next few months in the card department now.

To join in the WOYWW desk hopping go to Julia's Page.

Number Dies

So what to get with my birthday money. Well I splashed out and got some big Number Dies. Each digit is 4" high and they range from 1 1/4" to 4" wide.

I had enough room on my Sizzix Bigz shelf so it would have been rude not to get them!

I made my SWAP group card this month using them. We've been doing SWAPs for 10 years this month so a bit of a celebration for me.

Also I guess a lot of Birthdays to come will feature them heavily. Not to mention my birthday scrap page - got the photos printed and am working my way there via Christmas.

Got some ideas for preschool too.... I made some number cards for the children to clip pegs on.

And whilst I was at it I cut some eggs and flowers out for another Easter craft.

Autumn Layouts

We applied for our son's provisional driving licence back in September and had to take quite a few shots of him to get the right one. Scrapped a few of the others too.

Then hubby went off on yet another business trip, this time to Toulouse in France.

Hubby and I did some geocaching down in Reigate which showed us around the little town, its Castle Park and Caves. We need to go back in late Spring or Summer to be able to see into the caves though.

My latest page shows our garden with the Winter snows. First on 21st November last year and nothing until 17th January this year. Neither time did it last for very long.

In between some Parakeets came to visit too! I blogged them on my old blog HERE.
