Happy Birthday wishes Val .....

Today is my friend Val's birthday and this is the card I made her. Using the Arianna Blooms again ( I love this Heartfelt set) I stamped the flowers onto pale green parchment and embossed with white WOW powder, the other dies I have used are Tonic Trellis (I used the 'waste' from the front to make my previously posted card) and Joanna sheens Wisteria die for the foliage, banner die S.U. 
Sorry about the awful photograph but it was a very dark and dull day when I took the picture is this was the best of 3...roll on spring....

Yesterday I went to a craft show at Westpoint near Exeter with friends, it was a mixture of crafts and sewing...we were all very good in not buying very much, I did keep to my resolution and not buy any crafty goodies in January but needed  essentials yesterday so I bought two lots of glue, pretty card boxes 50 for £10 from Anna Marie so shared them with a friend, a small stencil, 2 sponges and slightly bigger banner die than the one on the above card and I treated myself to a brooch pennant....
just goes to show I have more than enought crafty stash to use and hopefully  thats all my buying in February too.

Have a good weekend ...

Baby fairy....

I love these pre-coloured baby fairy images from Hobby House... I've struggled to get a good photograph this morning as the weather is awful its raining and blowing a gale and its so dark...because my card is on a slant it looks like the fairy is about to topple over!
I've used part of a Tonic Lattice die to mount her on, flowers were in my 'bit box' and so was the little green swirl...

I seem to have lost another 5 followers again this morning Mr Blogger is certainly messing around...gggrrrrr

Arianna blooms...

 This is a card  I made for my friend Janet who's birthday it was yesterday.

I thought it was time I stamped my Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms.  Jan loves parchement so I decided to stamp and emboss onto white parchment and coloured the flowers from behind with Copic pens.  I also added the behind the flowers one of Sue Wilsons Filigree Poinsetta dies which I thought looked effective instead of green leaves.
The embossing folder came free with Papercraft Essential magazine last year, backing paper is from Stampin Up.

We have sunshine down here in Somerset this morning which is lovely to see after all the rain we've had lately.

Pixies Snippets Playground week 211....

Its quite a while since I did a Pixies Snippets challenge but as I had together this little card it snippets thought I would be ideal for Di's challenge.

The sweet image is a bit it of recylcing from a birthday card I had, the little flower and pink background was in my parcel from Anneke along with the little metal daisy.

Just to remind you....

 You may have already heard that Google is going to start the process of cleaning out and streamlining how people access Blogger.

If I understand it correctly, that means if you don't have a Google account and you follow me via the blue "Join This Site" button (Google Friend Connect), you will be dropped as a follower as of Monday, January 11, 2016.
 I'm not for sure if the ONLY way you can leave a comment in the future is by the first choice of a "Google account," but I know some of those other options are disappearing. So just to be safe, if you set up a Google account, you will be able to leave comments on anybody's blog.
Its such a pain I know hopefully I will still be able to follow all my friends...

Thank you cards....

 Its my first day back in school today as a volunteer and yesterday I made a couple of thank cards to thank you the two classes I work with for their Christmas presents they gave me.

  I've  used up scrap bits of card and designer paper  from my Stampin Up  bit box, how come it never seems to get any smaller??
Its lovely to see the sun shining this morning instead of the awful rain we've had.
