Reds,Blues and Kraft too!!

Good Day lovely people!!
Yes a couple of Christmas cards to share today made just for the fun of it, gotta make a start somewhere I suppose as it is now November doesn't time fly at this time of year it is frightening!!!
I'st up is a little stamp from docrafts which i initially bought for the sentiment which is stamped inside, a bit fiddly to colour this one!!
Next up is a lovely little robin from Poppy stamps designs, it also has a matching die (result!) but I actually forgot I owned it! (what a div!)
Not a great pic, but this is lovely and sparkly using platinum stickles, loving this colour at the moment!!
As you can see the obligatory Kraft  was used on both -don't think I will ever,ever,ever tire of this card stock!
Did you notice the stitched dies too??
They are from Lil Inker and a must have for every crafter!!
Hope you have a great weekend!

Girlie Card and Holder

Good Morning!!!
I have a couple of girlie creations to share today as it was my son's Fiancee's birthday yesterday!
Above you can see the money card holder I made using an Elzybell girl stamp (retired) it suited the occasion perfectly as she wanted money to go towards some Benefit make up!!
Apparently it's going to cost around £400 + to make her look drop dead gorgeous!!! lol x
They are staying up in London for the weekend as they went to see "The Bodyguard" last night
Yes I am "Well jel " !!!!

Below you can see the card I made her

This was so quick and easy to make using the new Stephanie Barnard Triple circle flip its die, it didn't take long at all to rustle up will definitely be using this for my last minute cards!
Well I am off to " batten down me hatches " incase the dreaded storm decides to pay us a visit tomorrow.
Hope you stay safe and  do not experience too much damage wherever you may be x

Birthday Owl card!

Hullo, Hullo,
A card !!!!
Yes I do sometimes make them these days just not as often as I would like :(
Unfortunately I cannot claim to be behind the brains of this layout as I cased this card from a very talented Chinese lady who for the life of me I cannot seem to find at the moment but she makes the most amazing 
I also made another in a pink version but silly me forgot to photo it!!
Hope you all well if there is anyone who still pops by on the off chance to see if I have made anything!
Here's hoping xxx

Christmas Tags!

Hi de hi!!!
Yes you are seeing spots and yes you are seeing Christmas Tags!!!!
"Christmas in July"??????
I'm afraid so the challenge over at Clearly Besotted isn't Christmas but "seeing spots"
I thought this would be the perfect excuse to use my Signature Christmas stamp set along with matching dies both available from Clearly Besotted.
This was i think my first purchase and i love it, they are so easy to use and even better now they have matching dies!!
Please do not be fooled though it doesn't mean i will be ready for Christmas this year, the panic normally sets in around the 20th December lol !!!
I must say seems rather strange doing Christmas items especially as we are due for a heatwave this weekend!
Hoorah! We have Summer!

Enjoy your weekend x

The sun is shining and the sky is blue!!!
Hip Hip horray a sunshiney day ahead!
I've not posted for yonks (naughty me) so here are a couple of cards that i had forgotten to share that i had made for my mums birthday and mothers day.
Here i have used that fab Sizzix accordion die again!!
This is a definite must have for those special occasion cards and so easy to use.
I do have lots of cards to make as have birthdays on 4th,5th,6th and 7th July not to mention the belated ones (oops!)
So................ hopefully there should not be as long a gap as to when i next post x

Cutesie Card!

Good Morning!
It was Stamping Caz's birthday on Sunday and this is the card i made for her!
For obvious reasons it had to be a cute card as Caz is a lover of all things cute and a huge Penny Black fan!!
On the front i have used a Jack and Puss image from LOTV, how sweet is this stamp!

I couldn't make her a card without her beloved Penny Black images so popped a couple on the inside to surprise her!
Have a lovely day!

Crimbo Card!

Hullo Hullo!
I know, a little too early for Christmas cards yet!!! 
This is one I hadn't shared, and will probably forget I have when it comes nearer the time.
This was a freebie stamp with a magazine, I forget which one now but a handy one to have.
As you can see lots of Kraft, which has been stamped with an Elzybell snowflake in white and grey , the image has been coloured with copics and for the jumper I have used white flower soft to make it look like a nice warm, snuggly jumper!
Part of the Anjas Quadrate have been used to make the shape, along with a lil inker bow die.
Hope you like!

18th Girly Card!

Good Morning!
Ooh it's a bit fresh out there today wish that wind would drop!!
As mentioned before this is one of the milestone birthday cards I made recently using a couple of Lil Inker dies, I do love these dies I really like the stitched detailing on them i think it really makes them stand out.
Quite a simple card really nice and pink and girly!

I have been a little busy making a few cards for Easter!
Hope you all had a lovely Easter and that the Easter Bunny had time to deliver some delicious chocolate eggs for you !!
There were, and I mean WERE lots of Malteser bunnies in our house but they have mysteriously disappeared now I fancy one!!
Funny how that happens, ten ton of chocolate here one minute then gone the next.
My motto is if you want to eat it all at once and be sick - then go for it but you're cleaning up the mess!!!

Here they are a little closer

 Penny Black Duck with flowers, this one always comes out at Easter...
 Plus, my lovely Elzybell chicks, I've told you before I have Elzybells for any occasion!!!

Anna's 16th!!

OOh! it has been so long I confess I have forgotten what I am doing!!!!
Lots of cobwebs in here and lots of dust !
I have tried a couple of times to post without success due to one thing or another and then given up so hopefully fingers crossed this will work.
It was a while ago when i made this for my lovely niece Anna on her 16th birthday, didn't want anything too cutesy as obviously she is growing up into a fine young lady but still wanted it to be girly.
Pink and yes of course Kraft - hope you like.
Milestone birthdays seem to be the thing at the mo for me, will have a couple more to share soon.
Blogger permitting of course lol x
Hope you are all well, that is if anyone still visits x
Bye for now x

Why Now?

Why do I now get the urge to start making Christmas cards when the event is over?
Yet it seemed like such a chore to do before the event!
Is it cos i know i have a whole year to make them?
Or is it cos I have new stash!!!!!!
Yes obviously it is because i have new stash , I just love these new meoples stamps they are so cute and i manage to bag them in the sale yeeha!!!
Here is another from the same set look at their lil faces Awwww they make me smile!
They also came with the sentiments.
Everyone else is probably sick of the site of Christmas but for some strange reason i am enjoying making them!
And last but not least my MFT stitched stocking set with matching dies there are so many sentiments and bits and bobs in this set it's a must have!
Hope you like !
Anyone still sticking to their new years resolutions?
If your anything like me the answer is probably "No!"
Oh well roll along tomorrow when i'll start again lol x
Enjoy whats left of your Sunday!
