Two sister cards today

Hello my crafty friends ...

It is my dear sisters birthday next week so have made her a special card ... have not done the insert yet ... so please watch this space

Also it is dh's sisters birthday at the end of the month ... went a bit silly with this one and not sure if I have fallen out with it (Leonie's) saying ... it took me ages and I couldn't leave it alone ...

I have become addicted to the three little dots that I saw being demonstrated on hochanda ... can you see them ... they are in gold on both cards ... they maybe featured on all my future cards ha ha

anyway here are the cards ...

oh dear not sure what has happened at do-crafts !!

Its an awful shame because there will not be a blog hop now ... seems to have been a bit of trouble ...

So I will hop about on my own lol

Had fun with this little card and when my grandson came over ( Ols he is 10 going on 21) ... I showed it to him because he is quite crafty he loved the night time scene with the moon and dark sky ... but Grandma he said ... you had to have a dark sky didn't you ... it would not have looked the same with a moon on a summer sky ... SO ...

night time sky 

day time sky


 cant wait for him to come over again

hope you are all having a great weekend ... beautiful weather down here in waterlooville
