Tilda I missed ya!

Today's post is a card I made yesterday for the Christmas box,this is number 29!!!!!! I used one of my Magnolia's from last years Christmas stamp club. I have not used any Tilda's for ages and I had forgot what a joy to colour they are!!! I must make more use of them, instead of buying more new stamps!!!!! Instead I could buy a few more promarkers ;) I am off now too prepare the kids craft activity at Toddler group, tissue paper flower gardens! xxx

21 again!

Today's card is my Brothers 21st birthday card,he is a fishing fan as you can guess! The Daisy & Dandelion stamp was coloured with Promarkers & I also hand stamped the back round. I am enjoying being a bit more creative again with my stamping,instead of just using printed papers all the time. I am also officially tired of Christmas cards for a while, so am looking forward to making a Christening card this weekend. xxx

Scrappy Christmas!

Just a quick post today to show you another one for my Christmas box, was up to 27 Christmas cards last time I counted! My aim is for about 30 by the end of September,then I will be half way there! This card is also my enrty for the "Creative Inspirations" challenge blog,where the theme this week is animals! A nice easy one for me,as I love the cute & cuddly animal images. This card was made using a free stamp from "card making & paper craft" magazine, and scraps from my Christmas papers box. Ribbon off cut and glass beads to embellish. Quick post today as I am getting all my washing & cleaning done today before I go to work tonight. Then I have peace of mind its done for the weekend before my energy has run out! xxx

I enjoyed making this card and it was nice to have a change from my usual stamping & colouring in. I enjoyed using the different stamping techniques. Recipe:
  • Versamark water mark stamped back round.
  • Stamped & embossed silver image
  • lace & ribbon from stash
  • card stock & adhesive pearls from papermill
  • Prima flowers & leaf
  • Anita's greeting stamped on ribbon with Stazon

Just Because!

Hello,sorry I have not posted much this week. I have not had as much time to craft this week as I would have hoped,despite me having another week off work!
Today's cards are a selection of Christmas cards I have made,not for any challenges, just what I wanted to make. I think have been following too many sketches recently, as I really enjoyed doing what I want for a change.
Got a busy weekend which hopefully includes a trip to Gunwarf so I can restock at Papermill. My two boxes of thick white card have lasted a whole year!
Hope you all have a fab weekend,hope to get some blog hopping done so I can catch up soon.
