Bring on the BLING

Hi everyone, hope you all having a good day.  It's abit windy up North, but that's not stopped my darling 3 year old boy going to school in his SHORTS!!!

Anyway I'm nicely tucked away in my little back bedroom with the second post of the week (wow, can't believe it).

This one is for the Less is More challenge which this week is Bring on the Bling!  I haven't done a LIM challenge for sometime, other things just seemed to get in the way of getting any crafting done.  So I was pleased when I finally got down to making a card for this one, and here it it...

I cut out a Christmas tree shape onto card with a free template I had and with my Art Institute glue covered the whole thing and then sprinkled on lovely lovely green sparkly glitter, added a few red gems and a sentiment from Pink Petticoat there you have it, and it really is quite sparkly.  I'm pleased with how it's turned out as this was a lightbulb moment at three in the morning, and you just never know with those ideas.

Hope you like it.

Winter Blue's

Hi everyone, well it's been a long while since I last posted anything on here.  I have been looking at what's been going on though.  It's just been such a busy time with work, kids and three craft fairs under my belt.  Hopefully now I can start blogging again.

I met one of my blogging friends the other day, Lisa Jane from My Makes 'n' Me.  I won some of her Candy and we realised we lived within 5 miles of each other so she popped by for a cuppa.  We had a lovely chat and got on really well so I hope to see her again soon.

Anyway, I wanted to show you a card I made recently.  I'm also entering this card into the Ladybug Craft Ink Challenge which is named 'Winter Blues'....

The image is an old Elzybells stamp teamed up with some Pink Petticoat papers and Craftwork Cards Candi.

Hope you like it.

Have a lovely weekend.

Hi everyone, sorry it's been soooo long but it's been mega busy at home, work etc. plus I also spent a lovely week in Marbella with some of my friends from work, a fab time was had by all.

Now it's back to the grind and I'm busy making Christmas cards for a few fayres I'm going to.

But I've got a little problem,  I've recently bought and downloaded some Hero Arts Digi Kits, these come as PNG files, however when I've copied / imported the image into word or Serif Page Plus I can't get rid of the grey background behind the image.  I've tried everything I can think of, you are my only hope.  It must be possible somehow cos I've seen cards made with them, I'm not sure if I'm using the wrong programme.

Is there anyone out there who can help.
