You're Sew Special

Hello hope you all have had a lovely weekend
Today I have made what I think is called a lever card, one of my lovely followers gave me the recipe to make this shape card and I have really had fun making it...
I have used some papers I have had for a while to use as my back ground, all the images I asked a friend if she would mind stamping and sending them out to me which she very kindly did so, so thank you Joan..  the buttons are from my sewing box..I coloured the images a bit with my brown ink pad to try and make them look a bit old or vintage looking...

Let it SNOW...

                hello, welcome to my blog, I hope you all are having a fab weekend..
Well all my family went home to England this last week, its been very quite here and I must say I have really missed not having them around, but on the other hand, it means more time for card making...
today I have made a swing card, it's a long time since I made one and I really enjoyed making it.
The snow flake stamp was a freebie from a craft mag, which a very dear friend sent me, she also sent the stamped Penny Black image too, along with a few more stamped images, seeing that I left a load of stamped images back home in's about right for me lol..
