A mid-week card

Hi Bloggers

I just wanted to share with you this card that I made mid-week. I have only just got around to taking a photograph.

This card is some co-ordinations yellow card that has been embossed with the Cuttlebug and then sanded with a block to show the pattern. To neaten it up I have rounded of the corners. I have then 3d'd some flowers and put onto the background. The stamped embellishment is mounted on gold card and cut out with a spellbinder (scalloped small circle). I have then stuck a co-ordinating ribbon to finish it off. I am pleased with how it turned out.

Look out for some more cards over the weekend.

Sunday cards.

Hi Bloggers

Well, I have finished two cards that I started last night, made Gooseberry Jam with Gooseberries from the garden and done some gardening. I bought two roses that I have planted and they look lovely.

Anyway, on to the cards......

This card is for a swap - a Man's card. I wanted to do a theme of wheels and cogs. I am pleased with how it turned out.

This card is for my brothers birthday - Shhhhh! Incase he see's it before the day :)

I hope to have some more cards to post in the week.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

A saturday evening in.

Hi Bloggers!

I have had a Saturday evening in and have made a couple of cards.

I did some stitching around the edge and used one of my Lily Of The Valley sentiments on the card. I am quiet pleased with how it has turned out. I may just send it out as a RAK. If you would like it, please leave me a message on my blog and I will randomly pick someone.

The second card I have made is using a new Cuttlebug embossing folder called Butterfly's. This then has an inked up Paper Butterfly. This is again, finished off with a Lily Of The Valley sentiment. What do you think?

Catch up again soon.

What a cold and wet Sunday.

Hello Bloggers :)

What a cold and wet day it is today. It is the 12 June 2011 and we have the woodburner on! LOL
As it is cold and wet, I have spent the day making things. I have made some strawberry jam and three cards - oh and a mess! LOL

Here are the cards:

The first is a flower card using a Martha Stewart Punch that I purchased yesterday in Hobbycraft. The punch embosses and cuts the flowers. It was such a nice completed flower that I thought I would make it a central feature of my card.

The second card is using a Little Claire Stamp. I am not sure I like this card - or the stamp. x

Maybe it is the colours I have used when colouring with the Promarkers?!

The final card is a stamped Tatty Ted coloured with Promarkers. The stamp is from the Do-crafts Magazine and I have only just got round to using it.

Anyway, as always, look forward to your comments on my cards.
Happy Crafting :)

What have I been doing?

Well, lots of things but not much crafting!

I have made a couple of cards in the last 24hrs for RAK's - so keep an eye on the post bloggers. One may land on your doorstep.

I do love 3d - so made this :)

I have also made about 5 of these teabag holders. They are very simple to make and look quiet effective with a couple of Twynings teabags inside. Ideal for crafty friends when they have a refreshing break. I have shown two photo's - One from the outside and one from the inside. What do you think?

Many thanks for all your kind comments. I do appreciate you leaving a comment whilst you are passing through.
Happy crafting :)
