Call myself a Crafter?!?!!?

Well so far I haven't posted any of my creations so thought it was time I did. This card and box was made for a friend's nephew's black and white themed wedding. The ribbon bloom is from instructions by Pam Bassett. As I had to guess the number of pieces of ribbon she had used I went completely over the top and did 60 - I later read a question on her blog and discovered that she uses between 15 and 37 - rather more manageable than mine I think.

This next is for my niece's birthday. I used Anna Griffin DSP and stamped with Chalk Cats Eye Peony. Stamp is from Paper Inspirations and the sentiment is clear embossed.

Electric Nightmares

An update from my previous post. The band did not make it through to the finals, despite a brilliant performance. As grandma to Rob I know that I am biased but the general opinion in the room was that they were the group with the most talent.
However, their first CD has it's official launch on 12th May and will be available for downloading from most of the UK, European and USA music sites. It is called 'Bullet for You' and has four of their own songs on it. I have just received the hard copy CD's which are very professional - superb graphics on both the case and the CD itself. Will have to see how it goes. Would love for them to have a good response, they would be so thrilled.

New Header

I have to thank my very talented friend Jak for sending me my beautiful header. When I work out how to do it I will add a proper link to her blog, Crafters Kitchen, so that you can see her fantastic handmade cards.
Wow - there's another new skill I've learned. You can now go straight to Jak's blog and it is worth a visit.

Electric Nightmares- grandson is drummer

Most of my family have been round for lunch today and had exciting news. My youngest grandson, 13, plays the drums in a group with three of his friends and they are through to the semi - finals of a local 'Battle of the Bands'. Will be going to watch them on Tuesday night. They are all in the 13-16 age group and are competing with bands that are much older so have done really well to get this far but they are also very, very good so I do hope that they get through to the finals. Will be going to cheer them on. They have just released a CD of all their own songs - and it is now available from CDBaby to buy or download. Am a very proud grandma.
