2nd Post for today!!

This card is also made using the Provo Craft embossing folder. Stampin Up coloured Card. Sentiment was from stash (Craftwork Cards) I think. The image is from Pink Gem, stamped and de coupaged. I added some die cut snowflakes, Pearls and Glamour Dust.

Thanks for looking.


Christmas Cards!

Good Evening everyone,  I made two cards at the weekend for Christmas Fun challenge and Snoflakes Challenge on DC.  Due to a couple of nightmare days resulting in my eldest daughter being admitted to hospital, I have only just got the chance to post them.  I am pleased to say that she is home now and safely tucked up in bed.

The first one is using my new stamp from Inkylicious called "The Coppice"  I have stamped the image using Distress Inks and added some Glamour Dust (although you can't really see it in this picture).  The sentiment was from a set of stamps I bought from "Sentiments 4 You" ages ago.  I also used Stampin Up coloured card and Provo Craft embossing folder.

Sorry for the bad picture, the lighting is not very good!

Thanks for looking.

50th Birthday Card

Hi, I hope you are all keeping warm and dry.  Some of the houses at the bottom of the estate where I live have been flooded today, for some it is the 3rd time in the last 2 weeks. I feel so sorry for them.   We have been lucky so far and I hope it stays that way, we are further up the hill, so should be ok.

I would like to show you a card I made for a friend last year for her 50th Birthday.

Items used:

I can't remember where this digi image is from, but I coloured it with my copics.
Sentiment was printed from my computer.  
Ribbon from stash.
Card blank cut on cricut.
Backing paper from Nitwits.

Thanks for looking.

1st Card of the year and it's a Christmas Card!

Good Evening,  I hope you are all keeping warm and dry. Will this horrible weather ever end?

I had a lovely day crafting with my Mum on Thursday and I made some Christmas Cards. They are all the same but a bit different. I will show you one of them tonight.

The red greeting was designed and cut on my cricut using SCAL.
The white card was embossed.
Ribbon was from Asda.
Poinsettia was created with my Spellbinder die "Layered Poinsettia"
Hot fix nailhead used for centre of Ponsettia.
Hot fix gem used for the dot on the "i".

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Snoflake's challenge on DC.

Happy New Year!

Hi, it's been a long time since I have posted on here and wanted to wish everybody a Happy New Year.  I hope everyone has recovered from their hangovers from last night! We had a quiet night in watching a film, finishing a puzzle from last Christmas and watching Gary Barlow and the fireworks.

I  am hoping to be back to blogging regularly very soon. I am reducing my hours at work for January and looking for a part time job with less hours, so this will hopefully give me more time to craft.  See you soon.
