Birthday card

Hi there,

Just a quick birthday card but afraid I've gone back to my favourite stamp set again. I just love those chinese ladies and they are perfect for paperpiecing. The paper is by papermania and the stamp set is woodware. Everything else is from my stash.

Thanks for looking

Birthday Bouquet

Hello again,

Well finally managed to finish this for my friends 40th birthday, just as well as we are all going out tonite to celebrate!

I saw the idea on okieladybugs blog and decided it was perfect as my friend loves all things sparkly. Used my cropadile to set eyelets in the tin bucket and attached flowers through these with brads. Assorted ribbon is tied around the handle. The big 40 was cut with george and the design studio, whilst the smaller shapes were cut with my sidekick.

Crafty Goodies

Hi there,

Not had any time to craft for a week but hopefully be able to post something new later. In the mean time look what I got in the post yesterday.

I entered a card for CCT challenge 14 and was lucky enough to have my card picked. These goodies are from Tracy Janes Crafts and they are scrummy.

Penny Black Saturday challenge

Hi there,

Just found time to make a card for the new Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog using a sketch by Di Hickman. As its their first week the challenge was to use your very first PB stamp. Mine was "Buzz in the air! " and hopping around seems this was a popular stamp. I deliberatly frayed the edges of the ribbon as its very thick, the idea was to make it 'tasselly' but think I might need to trim that again. I also seem to be obsessesed with scallop circles lately!

paper and sentiment sticker by papermania

ribbon from a selection at hobbycraft
This card below is the very first card I made with my very 1st PB stamp lol.

Another Wallet

Hi there,
Just a quick post with yet another wallet along the oriental theme, just lovin this woodware stamp set.

Paper is by papermania, I think it is being discontinued which is a real shame as I have just fell in love with it. Keep buying odd sheets in different styles when I see it.

Daringcard makers - criss cross card

Hi there,

This is a friendship card I have made for a forum swap. I am entering this for this weeks DCM challenge as it has wheels!


This card, all of it, was cut on my cricut with a cut file from Okieladybug.
I tell you she is one clever lady and certainly inspires me to use my babybug more. The main stamp set is loads of love from stampin up! and the swirls are studio G. Paper is dovecraft.
Again photographed ( not scanned!) with our new camera. Woo hoo can't wait until I learn how to use it properly not just point and shoot. Mind you I could be waiting a long time lol!

Pif Gifts and Cute card thursday

Hi there,

Made these today.

Totally cased the pif wallet design from the one Alex sent me but gave mine an oriental feel as been wanting to play with my new woodware stamps but first chance I've had. So one of these will be winging its way to my pif girls as soon as I get them in the post.

I'm entering these for the cutecard thursday challenge this week which is to use three different embellishments on your card. I've used gems, a brad and flowers on each of them.

Best of all though I actually managed to photograph these not scan them! Woo hoo we finally got a new camera a Nikon of some sort ( sorry not technically minded if I was talking about a car and you asked me what make it was I'd probably say blue lol!)

Pay it Forward

Hi there,
What a bad blogger I have been lately but with half term and relatives staying I haven't had time for anything. Anyway to the point of this post, look what I recieved at the weekend from the lovely Alex.

There are some gorgeous papers and loads of images including the new kerry jo doodles, how fab is that! This lovely parcel was a pass it forward gift which means its now my turn to pass on some of my goodies to the first three people who leave a comment on this post.
RULES: The first three people to post a comment will recieve a PIF gift from me ( some printed and stamped images and some papers). Then these people need to pass a gift forward (PIF) to three other people, does that explain it to everyone? You MUST have a blog to do this AND you MUST pass this onto three people.
