Penny Black Monday Week 15

This card I made a while back using a slapstick stamp from Penny Black called Hedgehog Birthday. I think it is cute and adorable. A very simple design and layout for me and use of a border punch. Oh dear, how different would I do this card, if I was to do it all over again. For one I would use a Nestability on the centre panel, decoupage a couple of elements, and the scalloped punch, would be one of my edgeabilities. And I would use promarkers to colour in the image!

But it does show how we change as crafters over time, and new things we learn or new things that arrive on the market do change us.

I still have not managed to finish of another pack of gems, although I am close on a couple, but because you get left with the odd ones, it is a bit difficult.

Forever Friends Sunday Week 36

A quick post from me today, have only just managed to get some free time between cleaning and making cards, and making food!

This is a card I used from the Forever Friends A Christmas Tale range. The layout was a sketch layout I saw whilst I was blog hopping, and I adapted to how I wanted it to use it for this card.

Penny Black Monday Week 14

Morning folks. Welcome to a Happy Monday morning, it is really never happy. I always suffer from the Monday morning blues, first day back at work and so forth after a weekend off. It sucks. But today, I have the Monday off. So I will be suffering from those blues tomorrow!

Here is a card I made for a card making demonstration last year using Penny Black stamps. This is using the Penny Black Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and Forever Friends Pink Parfait Papers. This image was my favourite from the clear stamp set, I could have gone and made a few more using this image. I hope you like this card.

Forever Friends Week 35

Happy Sunday to you. Spent most of the morning cleaning and have only just had time to pop on over here and have a look

A few have recently asked me about my foot, so I thought I would give you a quick update. My foot is doing well, I am apparently showing early signs of Osteoprosis and am now given Ad-Cal tablets. Things have improved for me since taking those tablets and my local GP has finally referred me to physiotherapy. The hospital doctor who is specialist in this area, has agreed to see me in an appointment at the hospital too. So finally things are now working out. November has been a great month for me.

On to todays card, this is a version of Shielas card, with items I do have in my stash.

Me To You Saturday Week 14

Good Morning, I am here bright and early again. Sorry for the lack of posts this week, I had planned to come online and make some posts, but certain things happened that took my time away from it all. And in way, it was good to have that break.

Voting has started, giving the public a chance to put back in their person who was exited from the first week of the show by the judges. I couldnt decide between the lad, Amelia Lily or Two Shoes! I hope it is Amelia Lily, as she has the star quality and is diverse. I hope she goes back to her white hair and not her pink hair, cos to me that gave her the edge as well! I dont know why. But hey ho, will tune in to find out what happens tonight...

I am at a craft stall in Bedworth Town centre, in the Bedworth Methodist Church opposite Iceland. Come and join in and support the crafters, if you are local in the area. There are some knitwear, and other gorgeous goodies to fill up your basket with.

Here is todays card, it is an A5 card, using the Me To You Wrapped Up Stamp and papers from the Winter Wonderland Ultimate Decoupage Kit. I have recently loved doing large cards, I have always loved my A6 cards and square cards. But I don't have many A5 cards, I dont know why - they are good sellers. This was also one of my Demonstration cards at Abbeycraft.

Final Born to Shop Demo Card

Here is my final Born to Shop card, wow! I started in July and it is November. Four months of Born to Shop cards I have been showing. With the amount I have shown, I could have done Born to Shop Fridays! The final demo card - i hear rounds of applauses, lol!  This again was inspired by the talented Clare Curd. This was not made for the demo but after the demo with the Nostalgia range. I do miss Clare's contribution to docrafts. She is on later today on Create and Craft for a Looney Tunes CD Rom Launch.

Also, have you noticed the date today - 11/11/11! ooo... I do like the little things like this.

Demonstration This Saturday - Kims Craft

This Saturday at Kims Craft in Hinckley, I will be popping in for a 2 hour demonstration. The theme is One Stamp, Endless designs. I will be demonstrating the At Christmas Time Stamp from Papermania that was part of the September release from docrafts and showing you hopefully how to get the best of one stamp. As a lot of people are feeling the pinch this time of the year, and just to show you - how one stamp can make many cards.
