So cute

hello, so pleased you have popped in, this is the second of my two new stamps I received last week, it's from wild rose Studio, I stamped them on to a oval shape cut from tonic oval die, then onto another oval shape this time it's the scallop edge from tonic, I coloured them with pro-markers, and added some lose glitter, I did not have a Christmas word so I just stamped Christmas and add the cut out wishes, I am not sure on the die behind my stamped image as it was cut out a while ago , buttons and papers are from my craft box and scrap box, I was rushing to finish my card last night before the day light went, I had my card with the opening at the top but I stuck my image on with out realising serves me right for rushing haha..

Well that's the summer holidays over,the last of my family headed off home to England first thing this morning! When my niece arrived last Saturday she brought me two gorgeously cute stamps from Wildrose studio, which I love , i have been waiting all week to stamp them up, so now the washing and cleaning done I sat down and made this card with one of my new stamps called Robins on Branch. I coloured them with my water colour pencils, I don't use them often and I feel out of my comfort zone when I do, but anyway that's what i used and I enjoyed using them, just need more practice lol..I added glitter to there cute little hats and some glitter on the berries too, the Merry Christmas sentiment is a old stamp from Woodward, the Star Die is from Memory Box, papers, buttons, and confetti are all from my craft box..

boo !

Yesterday I decided I wanted to make a card,  i haven't been doing much crafting recently but yesterday for the first time in weeks I really felt like doing some crafting, so not really knowing what I wanted to do I just played about and eventually I came up with this card. I think I will send it to my friend in America seeing she sent me some Halloween stamps last month, the crazy cats I had stamped already so I just coloured it with memento potter's clay and the hat with bamboo leaves. The background I used is a piece of card I cut from a wall die, then I used it to stencil through with memento LondonFog. The orange shaped hexagon card I stamped  a spiders web on it  from MSE using memento London Fog, as you can see I have used a few die cuts that I cut out ages ago, I know the brands but I can not remember the names of all of them.

funky Angels

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog, firstly  I just want to say I am sorry I have not been about a lot just recently, I am having issues with my health, and haven't felt up to crafting , but i am determined it won't get the better of me and hope to be back to full time crafting 
again soon.  We have a new challenge starting at  Sparkles Christmas  and Brenda has Choosen Angels/Fairies.. For my card to have used a old stamp from Stamposurus stamped onto a stitched edged die from memory box, I  coloured my imaged with Promarkers, added some glitter, and two snowflakes , then I mounted it onto a 5x5 scolloped edge card, the sentiment Hark the Hearld Angels sings came with the Angel stamp.
We have a lovely prize this month, sponsored by Sandra
