Baby Giraffe...

I did very well at my craft fair last week and had quite a few card orders which was nice....just finished them all.   One request was for this giraffe baby card so this lovely Marianne die for perfect..  

We are so lucky not to have snow here but today we have got lots of floods so the best place to be is in the craft room.

Thanks for stopping by

Christmas choir...

While sorting out my bits for my craft fair tomorrow I found a few images that hadn't been made up into cards this being one of them..  quick bit of colouring, some layering up and hey presto a small 4x4 Christmas card...

Can't remember who stamp this was but I know I don't have it anymore..

Another 'fractured' card....

Another fractured Christmas card, this time I've used a little image I find in my box...I will put a name on it later.

I'm busy getting ready for my craft fair which is a week on Saturday, I only do one a year and its in our village Playgroup...  I have also managed to just finish all my own 'special' Christmas  cards and luckily I can hand deliver them all by hand apart from two...with the postage quite high now I think like a lot of people we've cut down...

Its a horrible wet and dark morning down here in Somerset but nice and cosy in my craft room..

Have a good day whatever you are doing

Fractured card technique

Yesterday  it was our Coffee  and card morning and we made a card using the factured card technique..we stamped the background then added  the red square then going clockwise around the red square added the strips of green card...instead of putting a sentiment on the white centre piece I decided to add a poinsettia that I had already had made up in  my 'bit box' popped that in the centre then added the sentiment on the card.... I don't make 6 x 4 cards so I've  layered it up on a 5 x 7 card...A great technique for using up patterned  papers and it doesn't have to be Christmas DSP....hope you will give it a go its so easy.. 


Thanks for stopping by its very  much appreciated...

Cutie card and recyling....

Its been a rough 7 days having caught the dreaded Covid...8 days positive!  Still feeling very tired..  needed to do something so put together this card... It was part of a kit  I had bought a very very long time ago from The Hobby House... so just  layered it up and added some embellishments. 

This is a card I received a while ago and it was one I was definitely going to re-recycle....just mounted up and added the paw ribbon I had in my stash..We have cat lovers in our family so it will go to one of them....

I have a craft fair early next month so I really must get on and make a few more cards and.

Its  certainly got colder the last couple of days and we have had our heating on in the evening...

Be Bold blooms

We've just had another lovely week away with friends...managed to find enough 'flowers' in my bit box to put together another birthday card using the Be Bold Blooms dies..I've made several cards using this lovely die set...flower dies are always useful to have and are useful for so many occasions.

I will try and catch with all your blogs at some stage...

SU Beary Christmas...

Firstly thank to to those people who emailed and text to see if I was ok....Yes thank you I am...we've been away on holiday and of course the garden has needed  a lot of attention preparing for the Winter....  my craft room faces south which means its far to hot to craft in the extreme heat..I hope that I can get back into the swing of things mojo also has gone on holiday!

This card is one we made at our last Coffee and card morning...its the SU Beary Christmas...

I need to get things done for my Yearly craft fair which is in November so lots to do for that... 

I'll catch up with all your posts soon..
