Male card...


I can now post this card as the recipient has now received it..Men as you know aren't easy to make cards for but the Hunkydory Men's pads have some lovely images...Thank you to my lovely friend Gill who kindly shared her pad of images with me...
Using up old maps for backgrounds works really well..

Its beautiful sunshine this morning down here in Somerset and thankfully its a bit warmer.

More Christmas cards....

A few more Christmas cards for my box...really enjoying using these paper pads...


                                         Love these slightly Vintage looking cards

This card was made from a different Craftwork card pad called 'Embellish me Vintage' at least I've got my mojo back again now...it just needed a kick start..

Its very cold today in Somerset and we've got thick fog in our village everywhere is still quite white from the frost it does look beautiful but I'm staying in my craft room today.

Grandson 18th

Very quick card this morning using the Spellbinders Happy Birthday circle die with numbers....I've just used snippets of blue card from my box, boys of that age don't like fussy cards I know ours didn't but hopefully if its your Grandson hearts are acceptable!

Lovely to see the out this morning down here in Somerset it was a heavy frost but a beautiful day.

New PC....and more Chocolate covers...

As Windows 7 is no longer being supported by Microsoft I needed to get a new Computer as my old one is almost 9 years old and they didn't recommend updating old PC's so whilst I was waiting for my new Windows 10 Computer  to be installed I've been busy knitting again ready for Christmas.

The snowman is another Chocolate Orange cover and the little rabbit takes a Cadburys Chocolate egg...OMG the eggs  are so small now but I suppose like most chocolate bars they have reduced the sizes...I know too much sugar isn't good for us but it is nice to have a little treat now and again.

Both patterns I bought on the interest.

I need to play with my new computer a bit as some things are different.

Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend

My first Christmas card...

My first Christmas card for 2020...   whilst emptying one cupboard this week I found a a couple of lovely Craftwork cards paper pad books, this one is called Christmas Post.  
I've no  idea when I bought these but it has to be at least 3/4 years ago.... that  shows I have too much crafty stuff!  
I'm trying not  to buy any more craft stuff this year but use what I have, This lovely pad has toppers and tags in it so plenty in to make lots of Christmas cards.

Thank for stopping by

Chocolate orange Hats...



 Firstly I would like to wish you all a Very Happy and Peaceful New Year,

 For my craft fair in November I made a lot of Hats for the Terrys Chocolate Orange...

                                  These little hats flew off my stall

This rabbit hat was a special one for our youngest grandson who is absolutely rabbit mad...the look on his face when he opened this present was priceless...
I've started knitting already for this year but will have some some new designs as well...

Hope you are all well have and kept clear of this awful Flu type bug which is going around both my Son in law and daughter are recovering from this...

Paper Pieced Robins.....

Last week was the last meeting of our craft club and we did paper pieced cards using the Woodware Robin stamp....I really enjoyed making the samples I think I made 10 cards it total...a good start to next years Christmas cards.
Paper piecing is a very good way of using up all those little snipepts of DSP.

Christmas will soon be upon us so this will be my last post before Christmas.  I would like to thank you all for your support in  visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comments I really appreciate it.

Wishing you All a Very Happy Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
