Well I`m still here ,I have a busy day today Hubby at doc`s and me seeing my Liver Dr at hospital . I have had to make these early as the big ones need to Japan and Austrila ,
the small ones are for my sept daughter she gets me the calanders and I make them into desk calanders for her they are so easy to do ,

Here is the recipe if anyone wants to try them  they then fit in a DL envelope once finished,

Strong A4 Card, scored at 9cm,18cm,22.5cm then 27cm ,the rest is stuck to the front inside to ajoin it together ,the 22.5cm is a mountain fold , make sure scores are crisp for it to stand up , I then decorate to how I want ,well here are the 5 I have made for her this year :

I`m sure she will ask me to do more as I had a phone call today and she had got more ,I do tend to use my off cuts as the front is only 9cm in height. LOL we all have them
Here are the ones I have to send abroad they are from Joanna Sheen CD Time goes by

And these are for Me and my Daughter  I got them from CC in there birthday week deals only only £7 for 2 . I couldn`t get them ,I normal do make them and put all the birthday dates in for the family and her friend`s but I thought these would be a change, I shall just have to phone to remind her when the birthdays are ,

I have used my Clinch to bind them we both love Beatrix and as it was 110 yr this year I thought it was fitting,

Thanks for stopping by it means so much ,have a safe day what ever you are doing .

Commission card

Well I have just finished the other 2 Advent frames for my sister-in -law so I have now done 5 I found the numbers the longest to do you need loads of 1 & 2`s she has asked me  to do 4 Xmas cards for her but she is paying for these but its my choice ,only one though has to be football theme Man U,

The card I am showing now was commissioned card for some one else it was for a silver wedding anniversary I did it in the break from the advent frames .

Here is the inside
And the card envelope as I had made bitty blossom flowers

 Card and envelope together

I had to do the names in peel off`s that was the only thing I was not happy in doing but I couldn't do anything else , the hearts on the card I sniped one gently to in twine them and you couldn't see the join
I was really pleased how it turned out in the end .
