Not this old?

Hi there , welcome to my room and this reestablished site of mine . This is where I am sharing a collection of cards made just for my stash .

Cold and wet here today so spare time for crafting . looking forward to tomorrow morning when I have a couple of friends over for card making .  Have 3 kits for them to make and take . Actually has been a busy week for me but I handled it ok .Two birthday cards , a DT card and two B/cards and a few comments . No time for some groups that I had joined in and am  so sorry .Feel bad about not joining in on some of the group shares and conversations and it has been months since I made an  appearance . Have you done that ? There are so many wonderful people out there in so many fabulous groups sharing so much talent and friendship that it really is hard not to want to join in .

But I digress….

Here is another square masculine card .

P1030787 Found this image on  the internet . The back ground and sentiment tags are from Kraftyhands CD ROM , By Gone Transport . Rhinestones from Kraftyhands  Card base is from my  SU stash .Star punch from SU. all elements are edged sponged with  JH, Distress Ink , Vintage Photo.I went over the word “older” with red  Wink of Stella .

Must find some images for male cards other than motor related as I am on a roll with masculine cards .

Must leave the room for now as it is afternoon tea time and I am craving for a sweet biscuit.

See you here again soon ,  hugs Shirley-Anne.

Rest easy.

Hello craft pals .Thank you for calling in .  I do hope that all is well with you and yours.

To all of you  who are not well or are feeling down in spirit may peace and tranquility find you while I send the warmest of hugs .

Am sharing a card made a few days ago .I have a few male rellies who have birthdays coming up and this may just suit .  This is the card front . Sorry I have cropped and straightened recklessly . It is a 14.5 cm square card and the front panel has been adhered with foam dots .



Soft Suede card base with Choc Chip layers and LOTV paper  and pre coloured image .              Words are from old SU set , Happy Everything . While the sentiment for inside is so old the name has gone .




In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. - Abraham Lincoln

Or as I say you are only as old as you feel .

See you you soon .
