Hi there, I'm Ali and brand new to this blogging thingy so not sure how things work. I decided to start a blog because a very good friend of mine kept saying I should have one, told me it's easy, so here goes.

I have decided to call it Blossom and Grow because over the last few years that's exactly how I feel my life has been. Maybe i'm a late developer. You're never too old to try new
things and life definitely starts at 40 something.

March is Card Making Month

Well I've been really busy making cards for a lovely lady from D's school. She gives me a list of what she wants and then I make it to her specification. I don't usually make the same card twice and over the years have made some very unusual cards for different people.
I have decided to start taken photos of my card creations and post them in my blog as I often can't remember what I've done. So here goes hope you like them.

Cath Kidston Birthday Card

I used my CK material squares scanned them to make paper and then did a patchwork design background. White organza ribbon woven to make the grid and cut out a 40 with my number templates and used some papermania summer blossom papers. I used some petal punches to make the flowers it came out really pretty.

Everton Balloons
Didn't I say some are unusual specifications Everton Balloons on a 25th Wedding card is the buyers choice not mine.
25th Wedding Anniversary

I also made dad an anniversary card and dropped it off earlier today. I've used my Martha Stewart Punch and some lovely wedding paper from papermania. Lovely effect.

Tomorrow I'm going to make some friendly plastic jewellery new craft not sure how that's going to go but worth a try. Having a craft morning with mate M and then we will have to take lunch but no cake as I'm on a quest to lose some pounds before a big calendar shoot on the 9th April 2011. I haven't got long yikes! Watch this space for photos, NO not of the calendar, of my creations Hee!!
