Happy Birthday Dad!

Hi! It's not actually his birthday til the beginning of June but I'll have a newborn by then and I'm not really sure how much downtime (if any) I'll get! I've made a shaker card using this weeks My Favourite Things sketch. I'm also going to enter into this weeks Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge and the 3 little circle/letter elements on the sketch count towards the Three Thirds theme on CAS-ual Fridays too. I thought these little letters would look fab in cork in the circle elements. I used the Scattered Stars die to make all the little stars for the shaker window, not too sparkly for a male card :-) Thanks for looking, I hope you like it!

Papers - Lawn Fawn 'Lets Polka'
Dies - MFT 'Scattered Stars', 'LLD Little Letters' & 'Sentiment Strips', Simon Says Stamp 'Holiday Shapes' and circle & square Nestabilities
Sentiment - MFT 'Birthday Princess'
Other - DCWV adhesive cork sheets & acetate

I think I've gone with the Clean & Layered style again - it always seems to be what I like making most, lots of lovely patterned papers but not too fussy! :-) The butterfly is clear embossed so it's nice and shiny. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Mothers Day card

Hiya! I hope you're enjoying the weekend so far. I'm back with a card I've made for Jamie's mum, using this weeks MFT Sketch. She retired just over a year ago and has recently been learning to sew. The new Carta Bella pad is perfect for cards for her so I made a full-on sewing themed card! The stitched sentiment is one I made on the PC, printed out and pierced holes through to the pink paper, then just sewed through them - easy peasy! I didn't actually end up using any MFT goodies on the front of my card, just a couple of dies on the inside. This is also for this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge of Buttons. I hope you like it, thanks for looking!

Sentiment stamps - Papertrey Ink 'Keep it Simple: Birthday Mini'
Paper - Carta Bella 'Sew Lovely'
Dies - Nestabilities 'Labels #14', MFT 'Button Quartet' & Lil' Inker 'Stitched Mats: Rectangles'
Cardstock - Stampin' Up 'Island Indigo'
Ribbon - Stampin' Up 'Island Indigo'
Other - printed sentiment in Cotton Candy font, white thread & various buttons

Let's Dance!

Hi again! I love having loads of time to craft! I've just got a cold though so I hope it doesn't slow me down as I have all day to myself! Here's another little card I've made this weekend using the same paper pad as yesterday as it was still out on my desk. I paper pieced the back panel, his suit and her dress with papers from the background then gave him a sparkly bow-tie to match the little heart in the corner. I used this doily punch but covered most of the lace up, it looks really different so I'm quite happy with that! I also used a little circle punch for the inverted corners and a square punch for the sentiment banner tails. Thanks for stopping in, I hope you enjoyed the extra hour in bed this morning (in the UK that is)!

A Purple Christmas!

Hello again! I'm back today with a Christmas card I made on sunday night when I couldn't sleep, no big surprise as I dozed all day!! I'm getting really rubbish photos at the moment, not sure why, I think I need some daylight lamps, can anyone suggest any good ones? You'd think we'd have some decent natural light in July - nope!! Anyway, not sure it shows but I've put the 3 baubles on 1, 2 and 3mm foam pads to give them different heights. Thanks for looking, I hope you like it!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge #201!

Good morning! Well what is this?! A sunny weekend?! Surely not! We're off for a BBQ and saying those words will probably change everything, sorry if so!
But there's a brand new Penny Black Saturday challenge to play along with and this weeks theme is In the Garden! Penny Black do zillions of garden related stamps so hopefully you'll find something to play along with! If so, you'll be popped into the draw for a $20 voucher to 1-2-3 Stitch!
Here's my card using some very delish papers with a bit of doodling! Sorry for the pants photo, I took it last night when the light was rubbish, the ribbon is navy and the gems are green, not black like they seem! I might get around to taking a better one, who knows!
Have a great weekend!

Cupcake Guest Designer! Ooh la la!

Good morning! Sorry this is a bit late, I thought I'd scheduled it! As promised though I'm back with some news, I'm one of this months Guest Designers for the Cupcake Craft challenge! I was dead chuffed to be asked and had to say yes! The themes coming up are fab by the way! ;-)

This weeks theme is Ooh la la! Choose whatever that means to you, maybe a saucy image, maybe something french or red, white & blue, totally up to you!

Here's my card, I've gone down the french wine route - typical me! And coupled it with a saucy bit of lace and some beautiful frenchy-style papers. I thought it would make a nice anniversary card or something. I hope you like it and can join us this week, there's 2 prizes up for grabs; 3 digi images from Heather Ellis (of Pure Innocence fame - cute!) and and $20 gift voucher for the lovely Simon Says Stamp!

60th Birthday Card!

Afternoon all! Just popped on to show you the card I've made for my Auntie's 60th Birthday in a few weeks, it's going to be passed around so all the cousins can sign it so I've had to be organised for once! I absolutely adore these papers but have just gazed at them til now! I thought they went quite well with a spare bit of fabric I had left from some trousers I made shorter - I'm only 5'3 so this tends to happen a lot! ;-) So I made a little shabby fabric flower from them, some felt and a brad I had in my stash but can't for the life of me remember where it's from - sorry! Thanks for looking!

Ooh, and incase you didn't see, I've decided to open a little Etsy shop, not sure how much will sell but I'll never know if I don't try - plus I need more room and money for stash! Hee hee! Bye for now!
