The Best thing to hold onto........

in life is each other!!!
What a beautiful sentiment this is from Penny Black, i made this the main focus of the card for a create and take at work recently.
Rather a simple card using crafts too pansy frame embossing folder accenting the flowers and leaves with pencils and stickles for that added sparkle!!
I've not done much creating of late as you can probably tell - my last post was the 7th May!!
OOH! the shame !!!
I think i will blame it on the weather as soon as the sun comes out you feel like you need to be outside instead of stuck indoors, but i am glad it has turned a little cooler as do not enjoy it when it's humid and stuffy.
Right must dash have washing to hang!

So Cute!!

Good Morning!!
Well i was up with the larks this morning the sun was streaming through my bedroom window it was gorgeous!
Sadly now it is a little bit overcast but i will not let it dampen my day lots of jobs to do today including hoovering the car - it really needs it, where do all the little bits come from!!!
I did decide to do a little bit of creating before everyone got up and i followed a fab sketch from Midnight Madness.
I have used some very old papers, i think they are Crate paper - Sweet branch collection, i love these colours together.
I have inked for the first time one of my fave stamps (yes this is a newbie) LOTV Blossom - so adorable!!
I have used a bit of everything on here really, embossing folder, ms hydrangea punch (invaluable) CB corner die, I cut out in two colours and painstakingly pieced the two together !
Note to oneself DO NOT wear lovely warm fleecy dressing gown with huge cuffs so all the tiny pieces hang themselves from it!!
I do have a question if anybody knows the answer i would be most grateful!!
Where do i find the little bit at the bottom that used to be on posts where you list the items you used, it used to automatically be there! Didn't it?
Maybe it is just me being daft or has it really disappeared!
Just a thought it anyone knows?
Well must stop chatting lots of jobs to do and now i'm sitting here going off the idea - sound familiar? lol x
LOTV - anything goes
craft room challenge - emboss it
oldie but a goodie - die cuts and punches
papertake weekly - anything goes
my mums craftshop - embossing
simon say's - birthday
Toodle pop!

A Get Well Card!

Hope you are all well and managing to get a bit of crafty time to yourselves!
This card seemed to take me an age and was a little overdue for the recipient Mrs Wonka but i am pleased to say once received she loved it!
It was a little get well card for an operation she had not so long ago.
I have used a Pure innocence stamp set called Better get better , i thought it was rather cute, this also comes with a couple of sentiments (not the one on my card)
I have also used MFT border die Faux crochet and matching oval die.
The personalised banner was made using some letter beads which i have had for yonks and a lovely little stamp i got for christmas from Caz
I also decorated the inside for a change, it really makes it that extra special.
Have you any plans for the weekend? for some reason i keep forgetting it's a Bank Holiday probably because the weather is so pants!!!
I am in need of a new frock as i have a wedding to go to, i was searching today, i saw a few but none that will cover my "bingo wings!"
So back to the drawing board - I'm not really a frock person so this is proving somewhat difficult lol!!
Whatever you may be doing have fun - see you soon!
Craftsulove have a big sale day on tomorrow lots of goodies to be had if you are near to Charlwood Surrey!

papertake weekly - anything goes

Rain Rain Go Away!!!!!

Good Morning!
Well is it ?
Lots and lots of rain, someone really needs to turn the tap off i need some sunshine, a friend of mine is on her hols at the moment and she sure picked the best 2 weeks me thinks!!
Pinks and browns today for my card - i do like these two colours together and i have used a lovely magenta stamp called Butterfly post duo it say's duo so yup that means you get 2 stamps - bargain!!!
I have given it a distressed feel, unfortunately this is probably just about how far i get with distressing as it makes me too distressed it don't come natural to me lol x
I have also used the memory box founded fence these dies are so so nice and delicate i love them all, but BEWARE they are like Pringles once you have one you just can't stop!!
Have fun and hope you don't get too wet today!
