Best Wishes

Good morning to you

As you know by now it is my day to share some inspiration on those gorgeous 

Products.  So

Papers - Silverton Hall
Sentiment Die - Vivianna Corner
Sentiment - Vivianna Greetings
Die - Oval Frame

I made a birthday card.  I used a lovely soft grey contrast as the first layer and matched this with the foliage on the flowers.
Those gorgeous new papers were the next layer and I added the image using the oval frame die, this cute panda fits perfectly.  I coloured the image with copics, before adding the sentiment die the florals some pearl embellishments and of course the bow.

Here is a close up of that cute panda
I loved colouring this one up

As always I would like to thank all of my wonderful followers and visitors, your comments at this time are keeping me going, letting me smile at the end of each day.  Fingers crossed the time to relax will return soon and I can start to visit you all again.  So thank you.

Happy Crafting to you all

To The Happy Couple

Good morning to you all

Hope you are all well.  I had a lovely colouring session at the weekend, I do love colouring as it does relax you so.  Once I had coloured up all my images, it was hard to choose which one to use to create today's inspiration for 

With the Summer on it's way, well Spring is here at least, I have seen the snowdrops and the crocus' and the daffodil's are starting to make their way up to the sun, I thought I would prepare for all those Weddings.  

So I created a Wedding Card for the Happy Couple

This is a 15 cm square card with a vintage feel, it comes with a box and is for sale on my 

The base layer is kraft card and I have used some of those gorgeous papers from Wild Rose Studio, click on the link in my sidebar.
I also used two dies from WRS the oval frame and the new Wedding Cascade.
I added a punched border to hold the layer of ribbon, the lace and a string of pearls.  The ribbon bow is a triple single layer.  I added some pearls and some flowers to finish it off.

The image is coloured with copics and is a Mo Manning image called
Bridge and Groom.

The lace and ribbon is of course from 
I used some of the gorgeous lace and ribbon from the store those details are:

thank you to all of my lovely followers and visitors your comments are keeping me smiling at the moment.

So Using
Sentiment Die - Oval Flower
Sentiment - Everyday Sentiments

This is a silhouette cameo svg file created by myself but adapted from a 6" shadow box on the online store.  I have used an embossing folder on the back, hammered card for the frame.  

The dies were coloured first then stamped and then glittered before adding the pearls.

I added some more pearls around the frame and a little bow and pearl on the stem of the flower die.

Mother's Day

Good morning to you all

Today as you know is my day to share with you some inspiration for those gorgeous products from

We are all probably in the flow of making

Mother's Day cards,

so here is mine 


I made this one from another of those gorgeous svg files on the silhouette cameo online store.  I cut this in pink with the white overlay.  Before using one of my MFT pierced round dies to cut out the panel to fit the centre circle.  I added some pink florals a little pink bow, a small diamante bling for the centre of the bow, a small charm, a tag with the sentiment some foliage and a string of pink pearls around the image.  Love how this one turned out.

I have had a few comments asking me how I am, I know that I am not blogging as much or commenting as much, this is down to changes in my job role, although please believe me when I say I miss you all and I am working hard on changing the work and home life balance for the better.

I would like to say thank you to all my visitors for keeping me smiling reading your comments whilst I get through this.

60th Wedding Anniversary

Good morning to you all

Hope you are having a lovely weekend, I am having quite a relaxing one, for a change, so I decided to show you a card I made a couple of weeks ago for an order.

So without to much waffling, here it is

This is a Diamond Wedding Anniversary Card and it is an 8" square

I started by using my Spun Sugar distress ink and colouring my background layers, there were two of them on the front and two inside, so my arm was aching by the time I had finished, but I still needed to distress the edges of the grand circle and also the white ribbon, so I persevered.

I ran the white top layer through one of my favourite embossing folders and lightly distressed the edges too, before creating my triple layer double bow and adding the ribbon around the top layer.  I used a grand fancy circle to layer the sentiment topper on and then distressed the edges of this too before running a ring of lace under and around.  I used my foam to raise this from the card.

I decorated by adding tiny rhinestones in all the spaces on the embossing and finally added the florals and foliage to complete.

Loving this classy style of card, works so well for special occasions.

okay off to deliver a birthday card (handmade of course) and present

but before I head off I would like to enter the following challenges
