Sleigh Ride!

 Good Morning!
Whilst putting craft supplies away that had been lying gathering dust and unloved. I stumbled across this decoupage that I just had to have at the time!
I think this was last Christmas decoupage or dare I say may even have been the years before EEEKKK!!!
I just loved the style and colours and popped it out the packet and decided to rustle up a card - I know it's been so long I am surprised I remembered what I was doing lol x
So this is how it turned out and I love it!
Maybe this is the beginning of actually getting my Christmas cards done before December and rushing around like a mad thing!

My 6th Post!

Good Afternoon!!
What a glorious day it is but the clouds are creeping in!!!
I am trying to blow them away but am clean out of puff now !!!
Well, as my title suggests I have been reminded that this will be my 6th post of the year!!!
Yes the year! What a disgrace, not even 1 a month what is happening things must change around here!!
My lovely buddy Caz has reminded me I need to be creating and posting on my blog apparently she is missing my updates - I think she is the only one - lol!!!!
I will make a conscious effort to be posting as after all this is why i started my blog in the first place to share my creations with a hobby i enjoy!
Thank you Caz x
PS she has some fab cards and news on her blog!!

Lawn Fawn 3D Box Card

Good Morning!!
As it is a lovely Sunshiny Day I thought you  may like to see my lovely 'sunshiny' :) card I made for my friend Stamping Caz!
 It was her birthday on Monday and as she likes cute -  that is exactly what she got, I knew straight away I just had to use the Lawn Fawn Into the woods stamp set and papers to create a little scene!
 One tiny little sparrow and then another came along..........
 On the flaps I also used the Lawn Fawn - winter sparrows set - Sooooo Tweet!!!
I know I have said before how easy they are to make but you really should have a pop at this style of card as the recipient really does appreciate it once opened!!!
Especially so if they are Crafters!!!!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everybody or should I be saying "Hoppy Easter!"
Here are a few of the Easter treat holders I made which were supposed to house a Creme Egg!!
Unfortunately as usual  I was last minute and the shops I chose to go to had sold out!!!
So they ended up housing a lickle bunny and a caramel bunny,which was in keeping I suppose with the packaging even though there was a round hole for an egg!
Maybe I shall change the design next year and use a chick!
The treat holders were extremely easy to make I got this wonderful idea from here
Well don't eat to many eggs!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, shame about the rain!

Pretty Flowers Everywhere!

 Good Morning!
Here is what I made my lovely Mum for Mother's Day!
I love love love this style of card and could not believe my luck in learning how incredibly easy they are - bonus!!!!
To know that this little beauty will fold flat into an envelope is so cool and she absolutely loved it!
 I did have to pain stakingly cut around all these flowers as I did not have the matching die but in the end it was quite therapeutic as I stamped all the flowers and then cut while watching TV so didn't really notice I was doing it.
Here is a "fangy dangy" angle so you can see what an impact this style of card has.
I followed this brilliant tutorial where the lady gives you all the measurements in inches or cm definitely one to try!
Hope you like!
Have a wonderful Sunday x

Puss in Pink!

Good Morning!
Pink today and very girly!
A recent card I made for a friends birthday using the Elizabeth Craft Accordion Circle card with matching Square with circle frame edges (these are a must have to compliment your Accordion Circle Card!)
Kraft and gingham - match made in heaven!

I didn't actually do this card justice as silly me glued the card together wrong!!!!
Sooooooooooo annoying to say the least!
The inside white circles should be pointing forwards, a small error but still a pain!
Still as they say you learn from your mistakes, hopefully I will not repeat it lol x
Top tip I learn't from Caz was to first back your cardstock with Scortape before cutting the intricate filigree pieces from Square with circle frame edges so you can then peel back and stick straight to your card without having to use a glue pen!
Believe me I started off doing this first and it was very fiddly!
Hope you like, next one will be glued correctly!
Have a great sunny weekend!

New Home Card!

Good Evening!
At long last, a card , it seems I have had a bit of a break since my last post lol !!!
Well I hope you all had a nice Christmas and that you were hopefully not too affected by the dreaded floods!!
The card above was made for a friend who has moved into her first home so of course I had to reach for the Karen Burniston House set, it is so cool I was really pleased with the result in the end. 
I am loving Karen's new dies at the moment so hopefully will post again in the near future!
