Cute Card Thursday - Can't stop the rain

This week on Cute Card Thursday the theme is 
Can't stop the rain
I don't have many rainy images, maybe because I don't love rain, but this one is just perfect for this theme!

My desk has been taken over by my kids this week!  They are making cards for their school Community Service to send to OWH.

 I was relegated to my little table in front of the window (must admit I prefer to colour here anyway so it is fine).
 Managed to snatch this pic of a northern flicker on my front lawn, tricky to get the pic as I had to try to shoot between the blinds!
If you would like to join in this week go and visit Julia's blog for links and details!

Cute Card Thursday - Butterfly Kisses

Our theme over at Cute Card Thursday this week is
Butterfly Kisses
The obvious thing to do is add a butterfly but I thought I would try to use the kisses part too and create a mini album I have had in mind for a while now.
I have lots of photos of the hubster and me from our early days together and thought it would be nice to have them all in one place!
The paper collection I have used here is My Minds Eye - Lost and Found 3 Ruby.

We are sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy who will give a stamp of choice to the winner!
Thanks for dropping by!

On my work desk today are some delicious MME papers, that is not unusual at all!
This is what I will be working on today, come back tomorrow to see it finished (I hope) yesterday I had a number of hiccups and didn't get to work on this much so fingers crossed for a better day today!

Look what arrived at the weekend!
Lovely Jan offered to make me this fabulous knitting needle holder, I totally love it, huge thanks to Jan!

 How gorgeous is that fabric and the buttons?
It is still sitting on my desk where I can admire it whenever I am in my craft room!
A quick post from me today, I was out last night so didn't manage to get my post written up ready for  this morning, like I usually do!
 If you want to play along pop on over to Julia's blog for more details!

Cute Card Thursday - Something Borrowed

Our theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is Something Borrowed.
As always, we welcome your own interpretation.  I used a recycled 'something', the little flower came off another card, it has been laying around on my table for months so I decided this would be my perfect borrowed thing!
The sentiment and leaf stamp is Whimsy Stamps Spring Silhouettes Notables 6 I love this collection of sentiments I may be making a full set of these thank you tags! 
Papers are My Minds Eye, of course!

We are sponsored this week by Bunny Zoe's Crafts, a great prize as always! Hope you can join us!

WOYWW time! Wednesday came around so fast and we didn't even have Monday off!
We did have  a lovely weekend though, the weather was perfect and we managed to fit in 3 lovely long walks, hence another bird picture below!
First though, my workspace.
In the process of making a card for tomorrow (isn't that always the same here?)
Those stamps are MME aren't they fab?
I went to a reliable source for the identification of this one (after my red headed sparrow mistake last week, reminding me not to believe everything on the internet!)
I love the call these birds make as you walk along past them.
