Hi, my name is Jill. I am a stay at home Mummy, born in Scotland and living in Dubai. I love to scrapbook, make hand-crafted cards and paper projects. I am a full-time mummy to Adam and have a wonderful husband and great family. I love stamping and being creative. I lie awake at night thinking up new designs! Does everyone do this or is it just me? :) Thanks for stopping by. Jill x

It's a sketch at Crafty Catz

Good evening all,
Before I let you all know about this week's fab challenge at Crafty Catz, I just want to say thank you to everyone who has sent me thoughtful messages these last few weeks.  Although I am not getting around to blog, I am reading all your wishes and they make me realise (even more than I already knew), how fab you girls really are. 
Also, apologies to the Crafty Catz girls for not posting this morning.  I forgot it was Friday today! Honestly! If I had a brain, I would be dangerous!
Anyway, the theme at Crafty Catz is a fantastic SKETCH.  Take a look at this beauty.....
Here is my take on the sketch.  It was my Mum's Birthday recently and I made this card for my son to send to her. Unfortunately, we were in Dubai at the time and Mum was in hospital in UK but still, Mum loves homemade cards. She appreciates the time and effort that gets put into every one. 
I hope you will all pop over to Crafty Catz and view the gorgeous inspiration my teamies have prepared for you.  If you can join in too, that would be even better.
Take care and Big Hugs to all,
Jill xx

Anything Goes at Crafty Catz

Good evening all,
I am sorry I am a few hours late with this post. Due to my Mum's poor health and the fact I am staying in UK at the moment, I am only managing to nip onto the computer for a few minutes at a time. 
Today, there is a new challenge at Crafty Catz.  An easy one for you all.......... Anything Goes!
For this challenge, I created a Mother's Day card.  Argh..... I have temporarily forgotten who the papers were by (help! senior moment I think or is it a blonde moment! Hard to tell these days!). The flowers were made using my recently purchased Sizzix stamp and die cut set.
Thank you for visiting and as soon as I am able, I will be around to visit our blogs.  Apologies again for not being around these days. :(
If you pop over to Crafty Catz blog you will be in for a treat with the beautiful creations that my DT teamies have created for you. Hope to see you joining in this week's challenge. :D
Big hugs, Jill x
