Timeless Textures....

 I've been looking at the Stampin Up Timeless textures stamp set for ages as you can create lovely backgrounds with it and when I spotted one on Ebay I bought it and that is what I've used for the backgroun on this card.

The image was an odd one I found in my odds box so can't tell you where it came from so just mounted it up on oval dies used my Timless Texture stamp set to stamp on a piece of old Stampin Up DSP,    added a touch of cream lace,   a bow and my card was created...hope to play more with the little stamp set...

Its a beautiful Saturday morning down here in Somerest the sun is out and it ceertainly makes you feel happy and I would like to think that Spring is on its way with the daffodils out in the garden...

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine...

Beautiful you.....

I've not beel a very good blogger lately but I have been doing other things and sometimes other things in your life take over.

One of my New Years resolutions was to try and  NOT buy anymore DSP but to use up DSP paper that has  been laying around for a very long time...also, we all have papers  left in our paper pads that we aren't that keen on and these papers are some of those....  I decided to use one of the Beautiful You images, I paper pieced her umbrella and I think I really should have done her dress darker as the papers aren't that bright...but it done now....

thanks for popping by

Rosetta...

These are two really quick cards made from a Hobby Horse kit  that I had bought a long time ago....the images are delightful... 
If you are short of time (which  have been this past two weeks) then it's nice to have something that you can make a quick card from....The photographs are brilliant as the light was poor when I took pictures..
I haven't been idle I've been busy making samples for our Stamping day we are having on 25th March but can't post anything I made until after then....

Have a good weekend

Little Cutie...

Quite a simple cutie card, I found this gorgeous image in a box I think it came from A Touch of Craft....just mounted her onto a scallop circle and added a bit of sparkle with my Wink of Stella clear brush, popped her into an apperture card and added a little bow....its always nice to have pre-coloured images in your stash to be able to make quick cards with.

Thanks for stopping by

Organized Craft Day 25th March...and craft club..

 My friend Jill Lackford has has kindly offered to do a crafting day for us....it will be held in East Coker Village Hall, nr Yeovil Somerset... its not only open to our craft club members but to anyone....All details are on the flyer if theres anyone who is  interested in coming please either contact me (email on side bar) or Jill, her contact details are on the flyer also..

Craft Club...


It was our crafty Bunch meeting on Wednesday and I did a small demonstration using the SU woodland embossing folder and a couple of tree stamps, you ink up your embossing folder then stamp on your tree stamp before putting it through the Bigshot... (you can find lots of techniques on Utube)  the girls then all had a go......such a quick and easy technique to do especially if you want to make your Christmas cards in batches!......also changing the colours of the tress and card it makes a lovely masculine card...

Hope your are all managing to keep safe and warm in this cold weather..
have a lovely weekend..

Male card....

Christmas and New Year seem a long time ago now it doesn't take long to get back into the routine of normal life......I have been busy card making but not cards I can put on my blog yet....

Mens cards are always a headache but one of my lovely friends very kindly gave me some Hunkydory male images which are great so I shall be using some of these up for my male cards this year.  I love the vintage look of a lot of the images and for this one I've just added an embossed background, a little leaf branch in the corner and the little black cat....

Thanks for looking
