Some Spring Cards

Good Morning,

Hope the weather is as beautiful where you are as it is here.  I wanted to share a few cards made using Echo Park, Victoria Gardens papers.  They are just so sunny and vibrant.  I love that they also suit both Male and Female cards.  The first card uses a Craftwork Cards Chipboard mannequin, I covered the mannequin with a pearlised paper, attached some pink tulle to make the skirt and added some gems from Meiflower.  The second card uses a sentiment from a pinkpetticoat download and a flowers and ribbon from ribbongirl.  The 'pearls' around the edge were created using a white pearl pen from Viva Decor.

Enjoy your day,

Halloween Altered Art Project

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well and enjoying Autumn as much as I am.  I found these microslide holders on the 'Imagination Crafts'   website and used some Halloween downloads from  'Made by Janet'.  I also used Inkadinadoo Halloween stamps and some MME 'Blackbird' paper.  All papers used were off course distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink by Tim Holtz. Apologies for the poor lighting. I am entering this into the Grungy Monday Challenge

Craft Fair Prep!

Hello Everyone,

My friend and I have decided to try to make a bit of crafting money this year by taking part in a local Christmas Craft Fair.

Here are a few samples of  fabric baubles and cones and a few of the cards we are in the process of making.  I also make little paper heart gift bags.  The patterns from the baubles, cones and giftbags are from Tilda's Christmas Ideas by Tone Finnanger.  It is a gorgeous book and I want to make everything!
 The paper for the little gift bags is from and the pompom trims, lace and jingle bells are, fabric is from Pelenna
The Christmas trees are decopatched ( The Decopatch Place ) and glittered.

Bye for now,

Commenting on other peoples blogs, aaargh!!!

Hi Everyone,

I don't know if anyone else is having problems signing into their google accounts when they are commenting on other peoples blogs?  I have been so frustrated for the last week or 2 as I can't leave comments on everyones blog that I would like to.  I want to say a particular apology to Lisa-Jane, I hope you are reading this!  You leave so many lovely comments for me and I can't do the same for you. 

I am not very techno savvy but it seems I can leave comments where there is a Name/Url option if I am asked to sign in to my google account I just keep encountering problems.

Anyone know anything about this let me know please,
