Kira With Flowers

Good morning everyone, had quite a quiet weekend, was going for a walk into Wales on Saturday, but as we got closer the weather deteriorated, so we went to Eccleston Village instead and had a walk along the Dee.

I made this card for an example for my local craft shop. Hope you like it.

Christmas workshop

Wow how time flies, have been trying to update my blog for ages.

I had a busy day on Saturday, in the morning Dot and myself held a Christmas card making workshop, it went really well, the ladies seem to enjoy making the cards.

In the afternoon we held an everyday card workshop, some of the ladies stayed all day, they must have been shattered when they got home, i know i was. We had a good time its so nice to see all our friends again.

Here are a couple of the cards we made, hope you like them.

Milton With Sleigh

Hi everyone, have had couple of busy weeks recently, have spent alot of time preping for classes we have been doing, so haven't been able to post much on my blog.

This is one of the cards we made on our workshop, love this little bear he's so cute. I have used MME papers from my stash, just had enough for 17 card packs, glad nobody made a mistake.

Distressed snowflakes

Hi heres just some quick cards i made last night at a scrapbooking evening i go to once a month. I don't do scrapbooking but like to go for the company, and i usually make some cards, sometimes do more talking than anything.

I have used Kars wooden snowflakes, with a diamonte in the centre. The background has been stamped with a Hero Arts script stamp, i used Tim Holtz distress inks to ink the tags.

Make and Take cards

Its a lovely day, have just got back from a bike ride, and thought i would update my blog. These are two of the cards we did on our Make and Take class on Thursday, we did 6 cards altogether, it was a good night.

Went to Port Sunlight Stamp Festival yesterday, spent a fortune as usual. I bought the Tim Holtz Caged Bird die, so hopefully will do some cards and post them on my blog.

Winter Lady

Hi everyone, have been playing with one of the Wild Rose Studio stamps today. I dont usually do different shaped cards, but thought i would have a change. I stamped the 'Winter Lady' then coloured her in with Promarkers. It was a nice change to do a different colour theme other than reds and greens.

Oldie But A Goodie

I have eventually finished my card for the Oldie But a Goodie Challenge, the theme is Pink and Girlie, i am not really a pink and girlie person, but this stamp is one of my favourites, and have used it many times.

The stamp i have used is from Impression Obsession 'Feminine Form'. The background stamp is from Great Impressions, i have stamped the image with a versamark ink pad, which gives a watermark effect.

Oldie But A Gooodie Challenge

Hi everyone, today I thought i would have a go at entering a challenge, i have never done one before and not really sure what I am doing, so I hope it works. When i saw the challenge on Fleurs 'A Passion For Crafts' blog, i liked the idea. I have quite a few old (but favourite), stamps and thought i would like to use them again. I have used a Penny Black Stamp 'Nosey Butterfly Tea' hope you like it.

I have decided to do a 'New Baby' card

Emma's Birthday card

This is a card i made for Emmas birthday last year, have been having a sort out and found it tucked away, so i thought i would share it with you. I started to experiment at the time with mixed media (paper, spritzing inks, material, wool, my trusty sewing machine etc).

I made an A4 sheet and then cut it down to the size i wanted and then saved the rest for future projects.

A Tender Hug

Haven't had chance to do much of my blog recently,I have to share the computer with my son, it is actually his computer so I cant really moan. Have used one of my old Penny Black stamps for this card, he is so cute. I cut the scallop and circles using my nestibilities. The large brad is from Wild Rose Studio, they are a favourite of mine at the moment.

In The Office

Haven't posted any new cards for a while, found this card in my stash so i thought i would share it with you. This stamp makes a good mans card, especially if the person you give it to is a keen gardener. I coloured the image in with Promarkers.

Didnt get chance to post any cards yesterday, have made another card with the Rosie Posy stamp from LOTV, one of my favourite stamps at the moment. The other card is one i made for a Christmas workshop i did couple of weeks ago.

Tuesday, 20 July 2010

Good morning, not looking too bad here at the moment, the sun is shining. Hope to be able to have another card made today to show you all. I am new to blogging so i may be a bit slow, not sure wot i'm doing, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
