Wild Child

Morning... yes it's been a few days, mojo has been hiding again but I did manage to make a card for todays Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks using an image printed on vellum completely by mistake! Don't you just love it when that happens!!

I simply coloured the back of the image with Alcohol markers and then mounted in an aperture with a few sequins behind it!


I'm off to Wales today for the weekend with Lizy and the rest of the girls....

Have a Fab Friday

Speedy Recovery

Morning..  had plans for a crafty weekend and that just didn't happen in the end.... Oh well... I do have a little card for you that I finally finished putting together last night...

This is the perfect sentiment for friends and family who are recovering from illness....


Have a great day...

Floral Thanks

Morning.... I've been playing around with this card for about 6 weeks, finally decided that Jet lag may help me finish it so I'm here at silly o'clock on a Saturday morning, mojo completely in flow! I absolutely love this paper from Stampin Up... the colours are stunning!


I'm off to The Craft Bug in Chirk today to see my good Friend Della and the wonderful new A4 Bigshot in action... have a great Saturday!

Sorry I have to rush today... Have a great Tuesday!

Travel Notes!

Morning.... wow what a busy couple of weeks.... I really would like to be able to craft and blog more, but the job takes me away from that for a few weeks of the month so I'll be far more sporadic in the future.. although looking forward to a few days off in a couple of weeks to catch up...

Last week Switzerland, this week Dubai, so I decided to make myself a little travel journal to take with me....

I simply removed the front of the plain book and re-covered with this map paper (SU retired) and added a little tag... It was really quick and easy and far more fun than a plain note book!

I'm hoping to get some cards made this afternoon to show you this week whilst I'm away.. but we will see how my mojo is.. been pretty much non-existent recently!

Hope you have a great Sunday and for all those UK mums out there a fab Mother's day!

With Love

Morning... It's finally release day at Clearly Besotted and I have one last teaser for you today... It's been a pleasure to be able to share my creations with you this month and I hope you are looking forward to 10pm tonight!

Today I have used the "On Your Day" stamps and matching dies... and I seem to have a thing for spotty paper this week too!!

I think this set is a favourite this month, and the flower is also perfect for last minute Mother's day cards too!

Hope you have a fabulous Thurday

Inky Engagement..

Morning, it's not often I get inky but I wanted to do a different background for these beautiful graphic stamps from this months CBS release. For this card I have used the Mr & Mrs set!

Fabulous purple distress ink works well with the while embossing and I have added a little bit of stitching and bling as well!

I have used the sketch from this weeks CASe This Sketch as Inspiration #112

Hopefully this will post, blogger is playing up at the moment so we can only hope!

Join me tomorrow for the final teaser and the full release...

Have a great Wednesday!

Spring Daffs

Morning, see told you I would be back.... I have another teaser for you today using the stunning daffodil from the "Just Darling" set... simply white heat embossed onto vellum and added a touch of colour from behind using copics!

I realised I completely forgot to add the sentiment tag before I took the photos, oh well... been one of those months already!


Make sure you come back tomorrow for another teaser...

Have a fabulous Tuesday!


Missing Ewe..

Morning.. it's time for another challenge at Tiddly Inks and this week we want to see you use a charm on your creations.. difficult one for me, as I don't really have any ... Managed to find a tiny star to add to some twine...

I really do love these sheep, and this card was literally a 10 minute make...  Make sure you pop over and say hi to the rest of the DT...


The twine is SU and the charm from my stash...

I'll be back in a moment with another teaser from CBS... 2 cards in one day!

Grateful For You!

Morning.. It's day 2 of teasers at Clearly Besotted and today I have a really quick card using the "Flower Blocks" set... I have made a tiny card using stitched dies to make the base.

I simply stamped onto crumbcake card stock the solid flower block with shadow ink, used the matching die to cut it out and then smothered it in wink of stella... Simples..

Not sure where the weekend went, didn't really get as much done as planned and crazy work week ahead... I'll see you tomorrow for more teasers...

Sunburst... CBS Teasers Day 1

Morning.. remember me?  Sorry I had to take a little hiatus due to work commitments and the fact I wasn't in the country to craft at all :-(  I need to find something I can take with me easily on my travels!..  My plan for today is to spend the whole day crafting of some description, so in the next couple of weeks I'll have something different to show you!

Anyhow, onto today... I'm am honoured to again be designing for Clearly Besotted again this month and the release this month is fabulous as always.. Here is today's card using the "Sunburst" set with one of the older word dies....
