Just a little tealight................


Well it has been some time since I have written on my Blog. I guess that's because I have been so busy making my Christmas cards and things.

I wanted to share with you a little tea-light holder that I have made this afternoon - very easy and effective.

Happy Christmas to one and all!

The NEC was Fab!

Well, it has been sometime since I have posted so I thought that I would drop in.

I spent two days at the NEC with some crafting friends - Boss Wendy, Betty and Ev. We spent two days looking at all the crafting stalls and deciding how to spend our money. We also met up with some crafting friends from other groups and it was great to catch up with them all.

I will share some more cards with you in a few days when the RAK's have landed! But, at the moment I can share two Christmas cards that I have made this last weekend. I hope that you like them. Please feel free to leave a comment - Its appreciated :)

Happy Crafting!

Relaxing cardmaking ....and more :)


What a week I have had - work has been busy and no time to play. Have been working silly hours. It is great when you do then get some time to be creative. I have been having some fun again with my daisy and dandelion stamps. Firstly, I made two Christmas cards with them. What do you think? I do so love these little characters - they look good for christmas as well.

I then went on to do some more stamping and used a digital image that I got for free from one blog - the duck in the wellingtons. Both are coloured with my Copics and I am just a beginner here. I am sure that the more I do the better I will get with them. I would love to hear from you on what you use to colour your stamped images and what techniques. Please leave me a comment.

Well, enjoy your week everyone!

Some Sunday Stamping

I have had some time this weekend for crafting. I visited Hobbycraft on Saturday and for me I didn't spend very much. I bought a new punch and decided to use it, along with my stamps and my Copic markers that I have had a few weeks but hadn't yet used. The reason I hadn't used them was because I was waiting for my memento ink to arrive.

I have only coloured in two stamps with them so far, but I am very impressed with them. I am hoping that I will get an opportunity later today to colour some more stamps.

Here is the card that I have made using my new punch and my Copics - Hope you like it :)

First Christmas cards of the year


Well, I have attached the first two Christmas cards that I have made this year. They are daisy and dandelion ones. I bought the packs thinking that they were de-coupage and they were not. Oh Well!

I am after some small silver and gold flowers to purchase - if you can help, please leave me a message.

Hope you have a good day :)

What more is there to do when it's raining?


Well, it's raining here in Herefordshire and that means only one thing - cardmaking!
I am not so good at the photographs, but wanted to share three cards that I have made this last evening. One is for my Sister's Birthday and the other two are for RAK's. I have been stamping as well as 3D - two techniques I love. I have used my whisper pens to colour as I am waiting for a new ink stamping pad to be delivered so that I can use my Copic pens. Hopefully, mr postman will bring that for me today.
Happy Crafting followers :)

and more.......

And more.............

My twee cards......

Here are a few more that I have made in the last few days. They are again using up some of my stash that I have had for ages. Not bad eh?

Here is one I made earlier

This is a card that I put together last night. It is the stamps that I had as part of my Claire's stamps membership. What do you think? This card is about to go out in the post as a RAK. Hope the recipient likes it :)


It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to something.

I decided it would be good to have a space for my crafting - and to display some of the work I have done in Papercrafting over the last few months.

Please do leave a comment to say that you have visited.
