RAK cards I've sent so far

June Card

May Card
April Card

My recent baking session -

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would share with you my first attempt at Pop making, (thats a small round cake ball on a lolly stick). what fun it was making them, even though the meter man came in the middle while I was dipping a pop into the candy covering to read my meters which are inside my Kitchen. (The candy covering is really yummy).

I would love making this as a business as its got so much scope and also you can send it anywhere really.

I sent out and gave out most of the pops to friends and family to taste and test the posting packaging and they were all received well and eaten very quickly!

Gone a bit Polka Doodles Double Sprinkles.....

I recently bought the Double Sprinkles of Kraft CD from Polka Doodles as I have always admired Nicky's images and with the promarkers that I recently got, needed some tutorials on how to use them, so have printed out a few sheets to do some colouring in and these are the very first of the tutorials that I have managed to do today before my little Yorkie decided that my lap was where she wanted to lay her head and have a snooze. so hence me working on my laptop uploading. lol

A Card from my Mother

My Mother who lives in South Africa, has just recently taken to card making with a little help from me.  When she came over for a holiday she brought me this birthday card which she made herself. I had explained over the phone how she could make the flowers from a stash that I had left with her when I visited her a few years ago, so I am so proud of her with this card, its really her first card she has ever made me... I have sent her back with so much craft stash and also all of the stash I won on Creations by Gills blog a while ago and she is just going craft made. She has learnt a lot while over here and up is the only way she is going. Look forward to more cards handmade by my Mum!

My RAK card received.

I am sorry for being so long in putting these cards onto my blog. No excuses just never put my card up, so today is the day. (Becky,Karey and Margaret, please forgive me).

My April card was from Becky and its such a lovely card and I just loved the information inside explaining what everything on the card stood for. Thank you Becky.http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/2011/04/rak-card-swap-club-is-now-underway.html

My May card was from Karey - a lovely all pink card with butterflies that have double wings and stick up - love it ~ thank you and yes I am enjoying being part of the RAK club.http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/2011/05/rak-card-swap-club-for-may-is-underway.html

My June card arrived  and what another lovely card from Margaret with a lovely message about herself and who has not been making card for very long. Margaret this card is very nicely made and just love the glitter on the poppies. Thank you. In answer to your question about my hobbies, well if its out there, I want to try it so I have had my hand at many things including needlework, knitting, and other wool/yarn crafts, papercraft, cooking, jewllery making (not very good yet) mad about gardening and love my doggies. So I could keep myself very broke and busy with all these things. (hahaha) http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/2011/06/rak-club-card-swap-for-june.html
