Latest Cards

The papers I won this week are so lovely that I just wanted to sit and stroke them,  but I gritted my teeth and have started to make some cards with them!

This glittery flamingo uses the papers from the Paradise Crush pack

Whilst this cute felt hedgehog has a textured leaf background paper from Wild A Heart!

Lucky Me!

I came home today to find I have won 2 packs of paper from Trimcraft!
The 12 x 12 'Wild At Heart ' scrapbook papers are especially lovely

The papers are doubled sided and include these cute bunnies
And also vintage newspapers with embossed stags, deers and hares! The competition closed at the end of July, but the prize was well worth the wait.

Christmas is Coming

I know many of you started making your Christmas cards ages ago - some even make them all the year round!

I could not get started until the weather started to cool a little, I just can't get in the mood when it is so hot!

Anyway, this weekend I finally dug out my Christmas craft box out from under the stairs and started to get a few ideas. In the end I made 11 cards, a good start, but I do need to get a crack on so that I can make enough to give some to a couple of local charities too!

Embossed ATC's

I've joined in with the technique swap at Docrafts - this months technique is Embossing.

It made me realize that it was ages since I got out my embossing powders and hot air gun.

I enjoyed making these, so perhaps I should make the effort more often!

Bumble Bee Colour Scheme

These papers, tags and embellishments came from my recent USA trip - I like the mix of patterns, textures and colours, a bit different from my usual cards!

American Craft Goodies

I've just come back from a holiday in Florida - in between visiting all the theme parks, I squeezed in a visit to Michael's Craft Store. I had some dollars given to me for my birthday, so I treated myself to this lot of goodies

Some I will be using to put together a scrapbook of the holiday - but most will be used for birthday cards. Now that I have finished all the washing, I shall retreat to my craft room for a play!
