Ye Ha ....

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday weekend, the weather here in the north east has been pretty bleak, lots of cloud and grey skies but never mind i just baton down the hatches and do what i love to do CRAFT :o)

This card was rather a quick one for me and to make it I used a 6x6 scalloped card as my base, bazzill basics, not quite sure what the design papers are, sorry *slaps wrist*, some gold miri board, all of these are available fromThat Craft Place the navy polka dot organza ribbon is from Joanna Sheen and the card candy was from Craftwork Cards and the little brass made with love heart was from my own little *coughs* well not so little crafty stash.. The topper is one of the toppers coloured by the very talented Bev Rochester and is available from LOTV and I have just distressed it with a little Tim Holtz distress ink.

Well thats all from me for the time being, I must get back to my desk before I get twitchy fingers lol and I really should get started on my latest DT challenge.

Hello everyone, I hope that you've all had a good day, well I've been pretty busy and have only just lifted my head from my desk and I have to say its been great and I've loved every minute. So here's just one of my makes today.
This card was made using one of my lovely new Elisabeth Bell Stamps which was from That Craft Place which I coloured using my Promarkers & Flexmarkers. The Design Papers are First Edition Papers Spring Feast and are absolutely gorgeous and I've also used Bazzill Basics. 

The mulberry Roses, Rosebuds and Blooms are all from WOC and the organza ribbon, and flat back pearls are all available from That Craft Place and the pearl trim and small silver butterfly charm were from my own little crafty stash.

These two pictures show the silver butterfly charms two sides, on one side are the words created for you and on the other is an embossed butterfly design.


And now I think I should now go and make something to eat for my patient but very hungry family and then after I've washed up and tidied my craft area I think I'll have a lovely long soak in the bath.

Hi everyone, this is my DT card for this weeks challenge at That Craft Place Challenge where the challenge theme is VINTAGE which is I have to admit one of my favourites

to make my card I have used a Craftwork Cards 6x6 scalloped cream card, Prima Papers in Almanac (which are stunning ) and Bazzill Basics all of which can be purchased from That Craft Place as can the Spellbinders Scalloped Circle Nesties. The beautiful image is one that I was given by a friend and Its a sugar nellie one (I think) The Mulberry Roses and Blooms together with the Cameo are all to be found at WOC I have used Tim Holtz Distress Pad in Walnut to distress the Bias ribbon, Bow and Blooms and also the sentiment. The ivory bead trim, pearls and tule were all from my own crafty stash.

So there's my vintage challenge card I hope you like it and we would love for you to join us for our challenge and if you need anymore inspiration why not pop over to That Craft Place Challenge Blog where you'll see what my lovely teamates have done.

Good morning everyone,
 I hope you are all having a lovely weekend, I don't know about you but I'm finding this really warm spell is quite tiring, I much prefer it to be a little cooler but hey ho as they say.
Anyway onto a card that I made the day before yesterday using one of my new Christmas 2012 release Magnolia Tilda stamps which I bought from the lovely Lisa at That Craft Place and I think it is a super cutie.
For this card I have used one of my 6x6 scalloped White cards, Craft Card, Bazzill Basics pearls and gem brads all of which can be found at That Craft Place as can both the Spellbinders dies I've used.

I have coloured this Magnolia Tilda Stamp using my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and added a little Hunkydory Sparkle and these too are available from That Craft Place and I have used Mulberry Paper roses and Blooms in varying sizes which are from WOC The Design Papers I used are Digi Papers from Nitwit Collections and the pretty white crinkle Organza Ribbon that I used to make a double bow and also the Handmade Pearl Droplet Charm are all from my own little (well maybe not so little) crafty stash
.Well I think that about covers it but I must apologise for the poor quality Photo's I have used It's not been a good couple of weeks technically (and I mean that quite literally) speaking for me :-( you see a couple of weeks ago my laptop gave up on me so I have started to use my old net/web book until I save some pennies to replace my laptop and then 3 days ago my camera decided to have a hissy fit too lol so that will now need to be replaced, ahh well never mind lets just hope that old saying about things happening in 3's isn't written in stone lol.

Anyway I've got to go now and get my next DT challenge card done. And thank you all for taking a look at my card I hope you like it and please leave a comment I would love to hear from you.

Hi everybody, This is a card I have made for our new Challenge over at That Craft Place Challenge Blog
where the theme is
Things With Wings

To make this card I have used a cream scalloped 6x6 card. The stamp is one of my Elisabeth Bell stamps from my ever growing collection of Elisabeth Bell stamps which are available from That Craft Place and which I absolutely love, I have coloured her using my Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I have also glittered her wings using Glamour Dust. 

The papers used are Papermania, kanban, Bazzill Basics and a little Mirri Board. To make the flowers I have used Craftwork Cards Die Cut Flowers which I have curled and then added a Large Scalloped Pearl ( which was from WOC ) to the centre of each flower. The Pink Organza ribbon and Decorative Brad were from my own crafty little stash and the pearls and small silver Angels Wing  charm are all from That Craft Place

Thanks for looking and I really would love to hear all your comments

Good morning everyone, 

I really think that I should update my blog more often than this *slaps wrist* but anyway here's one of my latest makes. For this card I have used Elisabeth Bells Daisy stamp which I absolutely adore I just can't get enough of the Elisabeth Bell stamps and if you pop along to That Craft Place you will find these plus a huge range of other gorgeous stamps such as Magnolia, Simply Betty, Kraftin Kimmie etc.  

 I have coloured Daisy using my promarkers and flexmarkers these are also available from That Craft Placethe papers used were some that I was given so I'm unsure as to what they are called, the mulberry blooms, roses and rose buds are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the card stock is bazzill basics and coredinations. The lemon satin ribbon and bow, gem brad and iridescent flowers are all from my own stash, and last but not least I have used Rangers Liquid Pearls in Flamingo.

I really hope you like her and would love to hear what you think of this or any other of my cards so please don't be shy and please leave me  your comments.  Hope you all have a sunny fun filled crafty day and I will see you all soon.
