2nd post today, I don't know what's got into me!!!

I decided to make a couple of new baubles for the old Christmas Tree this year and here's what I made...

This is made using a polystyrene ball from a craft shop.  The papers are Craftwork Cards Candy Cane Glitter Pad.  I've punched out little daisy shapes and just pushed them in with a pearl headed pin, no glue and it looks lovely shining on my tree.

The next one is made using scraps of paper left over from another project...

The papers are also by Craftwork Cards here.  I've torn and randomly stuck them over the ball.  I've then given it a little varnish and sprayed with some Crafters Companion gold spray.  I'm really pleased with how they have turned out.

I'm going to enter them into the   ABC Challenges - Deck the Halls

See you Soon

Hi again everyone,  well two posts in two days, this is a miracle for me, but I wanted to show you a card I've just finished. (My apologies for the shocking photo, it is now 4.20pm and no daylight left in the UK).

The papers are from Craftwork Cards Twinkle Paper Pack, it's beautiful white pearl paper with silver foiled snowflakes (the photo doesn't do it justice!).  The snowflakes are also from Craftwork Cards made from Kraft card also with foiled snowflakes.  I've also added Candi and some Stickles Glitter Glue.

I'm going to enter this card into the Freshly Made Sketches challenge..

Hope you like it.

Bye for now

Christmas Wreath

Hi everyone, long time no blogging.  There are no excuses or reasons as to why I've been missing in action, there has just been no blogging done at all, and I'm very sorry.  I have however, been busy with a few bits and pieces and here is a card I made recently I'd like to show you...

It's an easel card I made recently for the Craftwork Cards blog.  It's made using strips of paper from the Candy Cane Glitter pad.  The robin is also from Craftwork Cards.  I've chalked his tummy and added a lovely gold glitter outline.  I have to say I'm thrilled with how this card turned out and hopefully will be making more.

I'm going to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Crafting for All Seasons - Green, Red, Glitter & Sparkle
Sparkles Monthly Challenges - Anything Goes
DYSU - Christmas

Check back soon for some more Christmassy posts.

Hi Everyone, hope you are all well.

This is a very very exciting day for me as I was recently asked to be a Guest Designer for Ladybug Crafts Ink.   It is also exciting because they have a new set of Digi's released today.

I was honoured and thrilled to be asked, I love all the images they have and these are just fantastic.

The card I've made is using an image called 'Home Tweet Home' and I just love love love it!!!  

There is also a challenge to coincide with the new release and that is to use EMBOSSING AND FLOWERS.  Here is my card....

I've coloured the image with Copics and highlighted the leaves and bird houses with Glossy Accents.  The background is from Craftwork Cards Embossed Kraft Cardstock and the flower is made from CWC Card Candi...

I really hope you like it.  Hop on over to the Ladybug Challenge Blog HERE to see what the other Design Team have made and enter their challenge.

Bye for now
