Another Mother's Day card

Good afternoon all,

The card on my post today is another Mother's Day card, but a very different one!  The image is a Heather Ellis digi image from and is from the Pure Innocence range coloured with Promarkers. The card is embellished with rub-ons from K&Company; ribbon and blingy bits from my stash.  I found a boxolope template created by Dawnie's Den and decided to have a go at making it and sticking matching paper inside, just to make it a little more of a personal envelope.  The 'gussets' at the sides allow room for embellishments on the cards.  I don't think it turned out too bad.  I've added the photo below.

Well I'm off to do a bit of hopping around blogland now and maybe make another card?

Have a good weekend.

Flowers for Mum Stepper Card

Just shaken the dust off a Craft Creations 3D decoupage sheet that I have had sitting at the back of my desk - just right for a Mother's Day card I thought.  Lost my mojo a bit over the weekend and need something to get me started again.  Anyway struggled a bit putting this card together, but methinks me mojo may be on its way back again

Thanks for looking.

A brief post today

Hi all,  just thought you would like to see a couple of cards I made yesterday.  The blue one is for a friend's birthday and the one with the duck is for a friend who is not very well, having just completed a course of chemo and radiotherapy, which he was actually being administered over Christmas and New Year.  His prognosis is good but just thought this may cheer him up a little.

Hope you like them.

Is winter coming to an end ..........?

Hi folks. What a beautiful couple of days we have had weather wise.  I hope you have all been lucky enough to have had similar weather and have had the time and opportunity to get out there and enjoy it.  As you can see from the photo's we are lucky enough to live near Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding beauty, where we can roam with our dog Mac and take advantage of the weather.

Anyway back to this afternoon.  I found the address of a craft shop that I had never been to before (mmm don't know how I managed to miss it as it is only a couple of miles away) and spent the afternoon doing what most of us crafters seem to do best, look, touch and spend more than we should on crafting goodies.  Eventually my daughter Becci dragged me out of the shop, otherwise I might just still have been there.  Bought some Cosmic Shimmer Pigments - never used them before, so I'll let you know how I get on.  But if some of you lovely people out there have any hints or suggestions on how to use them, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you.

Below is a card I have just completed for a friend's retirement in April this year.

I have used Fairy Doodlers Teddy Bo and Teddy Bea, digi image, coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are from Papermania's Exquisite Paper Collection.  The leaves and swirls are Marianne Creatables that I cut out of blue card then went over them with blue Sakura gelly pen which put a shimmer on them.  Unfortunately the camera hasn't picked up the blue very well or the shimmer effect.

Thanks to anyone who may have popped by and read my blog.
