Crafty Catch Up.


Well it seems I’m not doing so well with this regular blogging, haven’t  managed it yet!  Last week I had a catch up with one of my crafty friends Keren, didn’t get much crafting done though, more chatting I think but I did manage to make a card as well.


Yes another Christmas card, that makes two, think I’m on a roll…lol

Now Keren is a very inspirational person and can turn her hand to anything not just crafting and so on that note I must share with you this amazing set of stamps that she designed and had produced.


And this is a ‘thank you’ card I made using them.  Now I’m not sure just how many of these Keren had made but I know she did have some sets left to sell, you can check out her blog here.


Well time for bed but thank you for stopping by, I am grateful 😉

Christmas Wreath!


I know, it’s either too late or too early….lol   I’ve actually had this stamp for 12 months and only just inked it up (shameful!)



The stamps are from Chloe’s Creative Cards and have been heat embossed using ‘Wow’ embossing powder, I have added stickles glitter glue to the bow.

Have a good weekend,

Baby Boy!


Oh dear these days are flying by (no change there then!)  I’ve managed to make two cards this week, unfortunately can only show you one, the other one is for an up coming birthday and I know the person in question follows my blog (will post it next week.)

So this card is for my cousin who has just given birth to her third son, I had hoped for a girl for her this time but her little boy is healthy and gorgeous and they are both doing well 🙂


I’ve used a digi kit from ‘Daisy Chain’ here, the card base is made using Spellbinders’ Grand Labels 23′ and I’ve added some glitter, 3d gloss and a sentiment.  Wendy has some fabulous kits on her website, worth taking a look.

Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a fab weekend!

Clearly Besotted Stamps Challenge.


Well so far so good with my blog posts, I just need to keep them up….lol    Today I have a card to share that I’ve made for the ‘Love’ theme challenge over on the Clearly Besotted Stamps blog using the goodies I was lucky enough to win from the last challenge (thank you kindly ladies!)


I have used the stamp set ‘fancy florals’ along with the matching die,  first I stamped the flowers with a ‘brilliance’ ink pad (twilight), you can’t actually see it but the brilliance inks give a lovely pearly finish.  I then cut them out using the matching die and arranged them into the heart shape but not before drawing around a template first, I’m not that good…lol.  The sentiment is from ‘Stampin’Up’ and to finish I added some ‘Ranger’ liquid pearls.


Hope you are all having a good weekend and thank you for visiting me here on my blog, I do so appreciate it 😉

Birthday Cheer!


I’m quite sure it did bring a bit of birthday cheer too…lol


In case you hadn’t  guessed, I used the Katy Sue ‘Fabulous Gift Ware’ cd rom (again) to make this, the bottle covers are really fab!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and thanks for popping by.
