Fabulous shoes.....

Its amazing what I've found buried under a pile on my desk...cards that I've started over the past few months while I was unwell  and never finished so my mission is to finish off all the ones that I have started.

This lovely image is from Katy Sue designs Fabulous Shoes.....
Sorry its not the best photograph must find a better way to take pictures of my cards...

Hope you are all enjoying the glorious hot weather we are having I know it gets too hot at times but its certainly better than the rain.

Thank for stopping by

Whisper a Wish.....


We've had a lovely week away in the Cotswolds and the weather of course was beautiful...who needs to go abroad when we've got weather like this?

My lovely friend Gill sent me some of these gorgeoues owl images which is a stamp from Little Claires called Silhouette Owl and hedgehog....
just added some ink to the background and popped some grass on the bottom (which is my icicle punch)  Gill also sent me these gorgeous little rabbit die cuts.

It actually got me to make a card which was good... as i'm still struggling to craft...but Gill's images inspired me....

Blooming Basket...



I've managed to make a card....yipppeee...having been away from craft so quite a long time its taking me ages to get any of my mojo back but its a start.....


A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to win a raffle prize at one of Jill's crafting days (Jill stamps up blog) the lovely stamp set called Blooming Basket also came with a great Basket weave embossing folder and although you can't see much of the embossing fold on this card I'm sure I will be using both the stamp set and the embossing folder a lot more. the little butterfly is from a retired SU butterfly die .....

My health I am happy to say is so much better now with all the new medication and hoping to improve even more as time goes on... 

thanks for stopping by

Eclipse Birthday card,,,,

Its been a long time since I've actually posted or made a card....still having health issues but I am feeling better than I was....
I've found it so hard to get back into my craft room after such a long time away from it but having to make a card for a friend hopefully has got my mojo back a little bit...
Sorry about the photograph not being straight...

The background paper I had in my stash and just stamped leaves directly onto the paper before using my large 5cm letter dies (which I got off a that well known auction site very cheap )..the leaves were cut from scraps of left over alcohol ink paper..so a very quick and easy card to make....I think I will be using my new 5cm alphabet dies a lot.

Hope to start visiting some of your blogs as well to see what you've been up to... 

Thanks for popping by

3D embossing & Rub on Wax

Its been a long time since I last blogged due to being poorly  I am slowly now getting there..

I've struggled to get back into my craft room and my mojo seems to have left me but as we have club night this week so I needed to do some samples and this is one of them.
Using Crafters Companion 3D English Rose embossing folder I've used some Gare Luster rub ons which are wax based.... with these Gare rub ons they work beautifully with dark card paricularly black and brown.

I would like to also wish you all a belated Happy and Healthly New Year

Anne

Stampin Up Christmas Extravaganza day...

 What a fabulous day I had yesterday at Jenny's (stamping  moments)Stampin Up  Christmas Extravaganza day....we made some great projects and my favourite one was this beautiful framed scene we created  from the Hometown Greetings thinlits set  we also added some LED lights which turned it into a fabulous night scene...
This picture of the LED lights on isn't very good as I took it today in my craftroom when it was light...but you can see the effect its gorgeous and I certainly want to make more...


We also made a selection of cards using the Merry Mistletoe set which we were given...
Lovely winter scene using trees from the set and some beautiful glitter card
I really enjoyed making this clothes peg wreath and found it very relaxing sticking all the DSP on (both sides) ..and it means if I make another one I can use up all my odd bits of Christmas DSP...we added the reindeer from our Merry Mistletoe set....
Just loved Christmas card using more of the SU thinlit dies.....I'm afraid I was tempted and did give in to buying the Hometown greetings thinlits set...


This was the lovely table give we all had....



Sorry my photographs aren't that good but I took them on my mobile phone  wanted to share them with you today....
Thank you Jenny for giving us such a great crafting day once again...
