Love Launch…



Hello my lovelies, just a quick post tonight…

I’ll be back at the weekend for a catch up but just wanted to share this card I made using one of the new stamps from LOTV

The launch is on Saturday and is a love theme but I needed a ‘new home’ card and thought this sweet image was perfect…


Cosy Together


This one is called ‘cosy together’. There are 2 wedding images and some cute new animals all available in rubber and as digis. I used a digi for this card because I wanted to add some text to the tag

Oval lacey die – Sue Wilson

Twine, lace and charmthe Ribbon Girl

Papers – My Mind’s Eye


I’d gone along the bottom sticking those tiny pearls on which took ages and then realised there wasn’t an even number of holes. I have a bit of OCD and things like that drive me mad but I had to get it in the post so I carried on but it really bothers me if I look at it!!


Have a nice evening folks whatever you’re doing, I’m just watching the TV awards and can’t believe that Casualty beat Game of Thrones, Happy Valley and Night Manager…   but I don’t watch Casualty so maybe I need to, because the other 3 shows are fab. Then again, maybe I just need to get out more!!

Delightful Daisies



Good evening crafters, I hope you’re all safe and not affected by the awful weather in parts of the country. We have some snow forecast for tomorrow but I think we will miss the worst of it here

I went on another mixed media workshop at the weekend, this one was a planner class with the fantastic Kate Crane. After being a stamper for 22 years it’s a whole new way of doing things and really takes me out of my comfort zone - but I tell you, I absolutely love it. I have a few magazine and DT cards to do and then I’m going to be playing so I’ll be sure to share and see what you think


Lili of the Valley are having the first Facebook challenge of 2017 and it’s a nice easy ‘anything goes’. There are 3 prizes and the winners will be drawn at random

All the details are on the challenge page and entries close on the 15th

I used one of the new images, this is Delightful Daisies and is a birthday card I made for a special friend…


Delightful Daisies 2


The sentiments are new too and I used the digi version to shrink it down and add to the tag – a great advantage to digis is that you can change the size

Circle die – Sizzix

Flowers from the Ribbon Girl

Papers from NitWits – Butterfly Kisses


Hope you like it, thanks so much for all your comments

Stay safe everyone

Happy New Year!



Hello crafty friends, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year

The house looks so bare now without the trimmings, I love fairy lights and would have them all year round if it was up to me

I made all the usual nonsensical resolutions that will last about a week…  lose weight, go to bed earlier, use my crafty stash, blah blah blah!


A quick post tonight before it’s too late to share Christmas cards, or is it too late already, or too early??

This is one I made for a lovely little card swap group I’m in on Facebook. It’s about 4 times a year and you make a card to send to your allocated partner. It’s just a bit of fun, you get a different partner each time and everyone has very different styles. Let me know if anyone is interested to join in the next one and I’ll let you have some details for Nat who runs the group


christmas swap


I used some stamps and papers that are discontinued so can’t give much in the line of supplies for this but thought I’d still share as I didn’t actually make many Christmas cards for 2016 despite having good intentions

The flowers, pearls, cheesecloth, twine and seam binding are all from the Ribbon Girl

The sentiment is from Digistamp Boutique – they have some lovely ones, cheap as chips too!


Enjoy your weekend everyone, hope you’re doing something nice
