Card for Special Friend...


No time to craft at the moment I'm busy making a couple of patchwork quilts and doing some crochet.... 
This sweet card I made a couple of weeks ago using another serviette image....The backing paper I found in my paper stash, just added a little piece of lace and a die cut flower and my card was made.

Masculine Get well card...


I'm back after a week away celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary we had a lovely time away.  
Before we went away I made this get well card for my friends son who rides a motorbike so the image was very apt ....luckily I also found the backing paper amongst my stash of papers.

Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful warm weather we are having...is it going to last for the Bank Holiday??

Thanks for stopping by

Floating die cut Frame technique...


This afternoon I've had a little play with the Floating die Frame technique...for this you ideally need some stamps and co-ordinating dies also something called 'Gad Press 'n'Seal'  which is a bit like sticky cling film, I purchased that from Amazon 

 I managed to find some die cuts in my snippets die box these were from the old Stampin up 'A Rose is a Rose' stamp set....you can make two card from one sheet,  I used a circle die which I cut from the main sheet hence I manged to get two cards and I think these look very pretty.

I watched Jennie Mcquire tutorial which is so easy to do....Please have a go its so easy.

Thanks for looking..

Special friend....

 Made this 'thank you' card for a special friend who I know loves owls, its made from part of a serviette, luckily I still had a little bit of Modge Podge left so just gave it a couple of coats and it was ready to be die cut.  Trying to use up all my old backing papers this one is a very old one from SU.

Another week has flown by and its almost the weekend again but hope you all have a good one.

 Thanks for stopping by its really appreciated.

Garden card....


Just spend a lovely week in and around the Cotswolds, it was a bit chilly to start with but the skies were blue and we had lots of glorious sunshine and no rain until a shower yesterday.

This card I've made for my friends husband who's birthday is coming up soon..I can't remember what the stamp is called as I no longer have it but always stamp a few images to keep of stamps I get rid of but I know its a very old image, the embelishments are from an old Craftwork cards pad called The Potting Shed.

Birthday wishes.....

This a card I recently made for my friend Eileen.  I've used the Penny Black cling stamp 'Botanical Notes' and did a little bit 3D work on the image to make the flowers and leaves pop out.
After a beautiful sunny and warm day yesterday I am back in my jumper today roll of summer....

Easter cards.....

The only Easter cards I make are for the younger grandchildren to put with their Easter Eggs...my lovely friend Michelle very kindly let me borrow her Best Bunny stamp set (crafty friends are so kind in sharing) and these are the cards I've made.
 
Our youngest grandson Alfie is absolutely Rabbit mad he hasn't got a real one but four very special rabbits.  The first we bought when he was first born which no longer has lovely soft fur but it has been loved to bits....He wanted me to knit a blanket for so he could tuck the rabbits up in bed when he's at school....bless...

We have a beautiful sunny morning down here in Somerset which certainly makes you feel happy..

Thanks for stopping by
