Thinking of You

morning all, last Weekend hubby and I had such an amazing weekend as our son got married near Louth not far from Lincoln, as that's where his lovely wife comes from. There actual wedding took place in Tattershall Castle what a beautiful place it is, they were brave enough to climb  all the steps to the top of the castle to have some of there wedding photo's taken, not me I don't have a good head for heights these days lol.  Now it's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly this month Cathy has chosen to go with Sympathy or Thinking of You. I have gone with Thinking of you and used a beautiful embossing folder from darcie not sure what they call it as it just came in a clear pkt and was a birthday gift from a friend. Oval and scalloped edge Die's  are from Tonic,  I inked a bit of the white oval shape with Shabby Shutters then stamped  a bit of Sky of fields . Then I die cut the beautiful Ragged Daisy in white then coloured the stem and leaves with Shabby Shutters distress ink , the petals  I did the same but I used Spun Sugar distress ink. I added a few sequins to finish off. I used a piece of waste card  I cut from stitched edges to stamp my sentiment on and coloured it with Shabby Shutters distress ink pad , the little flower I found in my craft box. We hope you will join in the fun with us at Sparkles Monthly as always we look forward to seeing your creation, pop over to the blog and see all the beautiful projects my teamies have made, I am sure you will find plenty of inspiration there.

Sew n Sew

 Morning all, hope you all are enjoying this lovely weather. I can not believe where these weeks are going, I've had a migraine for the last two days, so last night I had A very early night,   but then about 11.30  I woke up with a jolt and remembered I hadn't scheduled my post, lol. It took me ages to do my post as the Internet kept going off and on, but hey I got there in the end.. For the next two weeks at  Cardz 4 Galz we have a new challenge for you and it's Sew and Sew  chosen by Caz, we would love to see your creations as always, so come on guys get your sewing stamps and dies out or anything else you have to do with sewing, we hope you will find inspiration from the DT to help you get started. I am not happy with my card, it took me ages to think what I can do and normally I love making sewing themed cards but I could not think of anything to make, I think it's this migraine,   I eventually used an  image from Flonz crafts called Vintage Retro which I stamped twice and paper pieced , I have had these stamps for years and this is the first time I have used them, now that's shocking eh..lol,  the Taylor's dummy and ruler were free with the card making magazine years ago, I have used a rectangle die which i seem to be using a lot just recently that's from The Works, buttons and the little flower are out of my craft box, handmade by stamp was a present from a friend.

Enjoy Your BIRTHDAY

morning all hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful sunshine yesterday I was hoping summer had come at last. Today I would like to share a card with you that I made for our new challenge over at Sparkles Monthly which is Embossing (heat or Dry) chosen by Silvi. For my background I have used one of Sue Wilson embossing folders called Rose Bloom, Die's used are Maddison Square and Mosaic Leaves also from Sue Wilson. The sentiment  (Go Confidently)  is from friskers. which I embossed in gold embossing powder,  I had been playing with some New to me Honey Doo stamps and stamped them on parchment after watching a video on YouTube, my son is getting married next month and the bridesmaids are in lilac, so I thought I would have a go at making my own button hole, I was so pleased with the way they turned out, I showed them to my daughter-in-law to be and she love's them too, the smaller ones I added to my card here and added some diamant√©'s. Hope to see you over at Sparkles Monthly come and joy in with the fun we always look forward to seeing your beautiful creation's and as always you will find plenty of inspiration from the rest of the DT ..

Love

 What a beautiful day it's been, I have spent the day with my friend in the yorkshire dales, we didn't get to do much crafting,  but I did manage to make this card using the beautiful poppy stamp from Penny Black called  Blooming Garden. My friend has a die for the poppy which I really struggled with to cut out the poppy, I did manage to do it this one time but when I tried to cut some more out I could not get the die to line up with the stamped  image, Which I coloured with promarkers, I cut the aperture and frame using a rectangle die, I coloured the cloud embossing folder with memento sky blue ink  pad, and put my piece of card in between the embossing folder and rang it through my spellbinders machine to emboss it. The love die is from Sizzix..

especially for you

Yesterday I was watching a video on how to use masking liquid, then I saw a beautiful card on Facebook made in the same way, so then I was inspired to have a go, I stamped this image from a set of Penny Black stamps called efflorescence twice,  then painted it with masking liquid I waited for it to dry before I coloured it all over using memento ink pads, New Sprout n Pear Tart, then I removed the masking liquid just by rubbing over the stamped image with my finger , the sentiment is from Woodware. i was really pleased with the end result.. you can colour the image or just leave it like I have..

Girls just..

Hello my blogging friends, I would just like to say I am sorry for not visiting all your blogs and leaving comments but a few weeks ago I had a fall and hurt my wrist, so due to that I have not been able to do any crafting or comment on all your beautiful creations, I am right handed and thats the hand I fell on, I am useless with my left hand, but hopefully now my wrist is on the mend I am able to do a bit of crafting and visit your blogs and leave comments again, it's still a bit sore so I am still a bit slow but managing to do a bit.  So today we have a new challenge for you at Cardz4Galz this time the challenge is Handbags and Glad Rags picked by Julie,  please do join in with the fun we would love to see your creations and I am sure you will get plenty of inspiration from the design team  also. for my DT card I have gone with a image called Shopping Kate, I coloured her with my new Graph'it twin tip alcohol based marker pens that I bought here in Portugal and they come in loads of different colours and are lovely to use. I am sorry but I am not sure the make of the sentiment as I have lost the packet it came in, they are a  few more stamps that came with this one.

JUST to SAY


Hi it's been raining all day today in my part of Portugal so I had a trip to our local Craft shop, and they had just had delivery of  some new punches  I loved this one as soon as I saw it, with these new punches you can punch anywhere on your piece of card it takes up to 220 grams, you can easily punch in the middle of your card too,like I have here on my stitched edge circle, then added it to a scollope edged circle, the punch  it reminds me of a flying saucer, the bottom half is separate from the top, you place your card on the bottom half then the top piece you just put it down on the base and your card too its magnetic then punch out. the butterflies are lovely that come out, I have used both. I think I will be going back for another one of these punches they had a lovely heart one, stars and a couple of others. My sentiment stamp has lost it packet so I am not sure where they came from.
