Project Of The Week

Whilst I am getting to terms with 2009, I realised I have not made any new cards recently. Really bad of me. I am sorry. I am getting into the swing of things and recovering from this nasty flu. I certainly am drained. Once I have made a few projects I feel happy with. I will share really soon.

Meanwhile, I love the Project of the week at Take a look at the picture of the card above. Isnt it so cute! The instructions and items used can be by going to the home page, and clicking on the project at the top of the page.

Recently since I have upgraded my internet explorer the zoom function on the projects at docrafts does not work. Does anybody have any suggestions? Any other browsers?

Craft Fayre

I am a stall holder at a Craft Fayre tomorrow. It is at Nuneaton Town Centre, right next to Ropewalk in the Church. If you are near by, please do drop by.


Hi all, I have not done a disappearing act I have been really busy, and since Tuesday I have been in bed suffering. I think it is the flu, but coming back from India the doctor said it could be anything. He said if it don't clear with antiobiotics, come back for blood tests. They are really concerned that I am having fever that comes and goes.

Meanwhile, this new money minded docrafts really did not bother me before. I did feel sorry for the small craft shops but they have found other ways to cope with other brands and their own classes,etc. However they have now discontinued their glass paints! I make my living based on those, and was disheartened. I then did a round of all docraft shops and stocked up on what I can get hold of. I will have to try other brands but they are all so expensive. I really do not know what to do. I am extremely frustrated.

I have arrived back home safely safe and sound yesterday. However I am absolutely shattered. I spent a couple of hours trying to catch up on peoples galleries, its impossible to leave everyone feedback but would just like to say all your galleries are beautiful as ever. I am back at work tomorrow, and will now try to catch up on your blogs later in the week.

I think it is about time I changed my blog background, what do you think?

Its Christmas Time

I created the following card using the snowflake stamp in Daisy and Dandelion's Santa's Little Helpers. I stamped this all over the background. I cut two cards one in blue and the other in White card. Using one the embossed transfers from the QVC Kit, i transferred this over. Added glitter and doodle lines. Added a couple of stamped snowflakes, adhesive shimmy dots. I added a strip of card at the bottom, and stamped one of the greetings in same colours.

The QVC Kit was an amazing price of £19.99 on on its debut. Honestly, i purchased the kit, it has so much in this and truly value for money.

I hope you like the card.

Products used:
Daisy and Dandeion - Christmas Collection Santa's Little Helpers
