Still Free n Easy lol

Yes we are still enjoying a free and easy theme over at Allsorts. It has been lovely to make cards for the open theme, but oh wow what a huge number of entries we've been getting and commenting has been a busy job lol. Not that we are complaining! It's great to see so many entrants.
This week is my week to host and I made this card for it using my new Tatty Teddy stamp that I received a few weeks ago from a crafty aunt of mine :o) The paper is a scrap from the box so not sure where its from. I love paper piecing so thought it would suit the parasol.
This time next week the panda family will be all packed up and ready as we moving house. We will be sad to leave the Highlands, but I am glad to be moving closer to my family. With the arrival of the littlest panda (can you believe he's 19 months now?) our current house is a bit too small, only 2 bedrooms. So we are moving to a nice, larger home, where the wee pandas can have their own rooms :o)
Hope you will come and join in with us at Allsorts this week, why not it's free n easy after all lol

A school friend's daughter has just given birth to a gorgeous wee girl so I made this card to send to the new granny!

I am having to only do it after Alfie is in bed as it at the stage now where I need to concentrate and lets face it there is no way I can do that with the wee monster running around lol

Allsorts and Penny Black at Allsorts

Morning all and wow where has this week gone?? Last week of school always flies by I suppose, normally this is the day we leave for our holiday but with moving in 4 weeks we'll not be getting one this year, so here I am surrounded by empty boxes wishing I was driving to Devon!!
Anyway over at Allsorts we are having a Free and Easy month, yup July is an open theme month for a change :o) I decided on a 2 page wordbook for an 18th birthday. It printed out quite a dinky size (don't know how I did and if I will ever be able to do it again lol). It is from the Funky Hand cd Craft the Year Away. A few flowers, a flutterby and some scrummy ribbon to match the papers and a cute wee wordbook was made :o)
Truly Scrumptious ~ things with wings
We are sponsored this week by Letraset and as always we have a set of Aquamarkers for you to win :o)
My second card should have been blogged yesterday for the 1st but our broadband was playing up yesterday and kept cutting out so I gave up!! July's theme at Penny Black at Allsorts is "Flower Power" I've used a stickeroo on my card as I was a wee bit pushed for time as I also had teachers presents etc to make this week.
There is a gorgeous prize on offer (as always). Hope you will pop in and join in with the fun :o)
