This is my second set of jewellery made this morning!  I am really liking this one. xxx

Saturday, 7 April 2012

Hello!  Today I plucked up the courage and made my very first set of jewellery.  I don't know about one to one and a half hours for a set - I have been doing this since 2.00 p.m. this afternoon and have just finished.  My fingers are sore but I am happy!  What do you think?

Hello!  I have had the most fantastic day at the NEC with my daughter Lisa, who did all the hard work while I just shopped!  (She shopped as well I have to say)!  Thought you might like a look at what I bought! xxx

Hello!  I have made a card today using the new Paintbox Poppets Die Cuts, core-dinations card embossed with a Darice folder and various paper and embellishments from my stash.  I hope you like it!

I haven't had time lately to put anything on here, but have made a couple of cards to give to friends of mine.  One of them is to a lady I have been going to radiotherapy with and she finishes her treatment on Monday, so I will give it to her then.  I hope she likes it!  The other one is a thank you card!
Look what I found! xxx Just had to make him up didn't I?

Hiya!  I cannot believe that I have not blogged since 14th February!  In mitigation I have been going to radiotherapy for breast cancer so all the days have sort of rolled into one!  I am trying to find a card I made before all this started that you have not seen!  I don't believe you have seen these (please don't tell my husband about the owl card - it's for his birthday!)  Anyhoo - everything is going well. xxx

I had a play last night - inspired by Sheena!  This is the result. xxx

I said yesterday that I was going to make an Adorables card - well here it is! xxx

Saturday, 11 February 2012

Hello!  Well its a very cold morning (-12 degrees).  I am going nowhere today and am in my craft room cutting out some decoupage of a lovely sunny beach!  I am going to put together an adorables card today I think.  So that brings in colouring (need more practice!) and core-dinations (I love this card) and maybe some embossing as well! So shall be busy ALL day.

Whilst on the subject of craft rooms - I updated mine in November of last year.  I put pictures on facebook but they went all over the place!  So, I thought I would put them on here and they would stay where I put them! Hope you like - feel free to comment! xxx

I want to enter this in the Crafters Companion 'Anything Goes' competition.  I'm not sure how to do it so I will put in on my blog first.  It was made using Centura Pearl as the base - Neenah card through the GC and then I played with Mica Powder.

How about some flower fairies?  Its cold outside and these were made a while ago - I hope you like them!  All done with Reddy decoupage and the fairyopolis kit. xxx

I have made two commission cards for a friend.  A 21st birthday card and an 18th birthday card.
I thought I would have a play at making a single colour card!  This is done with centura pearl throughout - I love this stuff! xxx

Here is another one! xxx
I found this image already coloured, so made it into a card! xxx  Winter Cheer - Core'dinations - Neenah card! xxx

I really love this Humphrey image.  The core'dinations card is exactly the right colour! xxx  I coloured the flower with my speccies!

More of little humphrey! xxx
This card was made a while ago - as you can see - humphrey on core'dinations card.
Well - have not had time to put cards together today as have been filling in forms for emigration to Canada!  If you think our forms are bad, you should try theirs!  Anyhoo - they are done now for the time being and we just wait now for the next round.  I would like to thank everyone for their very kind comments on this blog and let you know that they have inspired me to keep blogging!

I shall be posting more cards as I make them, both for my pleasure and also the cards I make for commissions.  Thank you very much for taking the time to look!
