I did this card for a challnege but missed the closing date! Oops! I still like it though and wanted to share it. I am thinking of adding an orange lily to it which i coloured in earlier in the week but have not used yet! I will post that if it looks ok!
The stamp is from Sheena Douglass collection. I have embossed the edges of the topper with WOW black glint embossing powder. I have set it all onto white pearl card and used some peel offs to finish the corners.


I have made this card with the intention of using up some scrap paper. The papers have come from an unknown source. The ribbon is also from my stash of older stuff. I used a stamp with handbags on and have glittered them with Lidls glitter! Around the edges I embossed using WOW black glint embossing powder. The 'with love' stamp is from a Docrafts country companion set. Wish I had a handbag like these!!
Have a good weekend all!

Hi all!
I have been busy looking after my poorly little boy so there's not been much time for crafting this week :-( I have however purchased a big shot at last!!
I made this card at my craft club last weekend. It's for my partners uncle for his birthday. I have used a Kanban kit my mum gave me and some peel offs from create and craft. I tied some string round the corners to add something extra but it's incredibly hard to embellish a man card!!Any ideas would be welcome on this!
Enjoy your day

I am entering this in the bearly there challenge as it has some twine on!

time spent with cats....

Good morning everyone on this gorgeous sunny morning!
I have made this card for my friends birthday-she has a love of cats as do I!
I don't know who has made these stamps-they are from my stash. The background papers are also unknown as I bought them from a friend. The ribbon came from Lidl and so did the burgundy card. Lidl can sometimes have some great crafting bits-you just have to be in the ght place at the right time!I have made a concertina strip to go underneath the main stamp and have mounted that onto silver mirri card.I coloured this with pro-markers. My colouring definately needs some more practice!
hope you all have a good day.
