My pop up card for Mothers Day

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well. Excuse my lack of posts as usual! I will try to get my behind in gear and get posting more as I am still regularly making my cards and other things.

I would also like to share with you photos of my craft room which has come together recently.

I made a pop up card for my Mum for Mothers Day using beautiful craft work card goodies, 
I used snippets of designer papers that had been used on another project to make this project. Don't you just love it when you have scraps that fit a space on your card perfectly?

I would like to enter my card in to Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge here!

Di has an absolutely stunning card this week with a beautiful fairy on, she is giving away some amazing goodies too so if you have a snippets card then go and join in!

I would also like to enter this card in to the following challenges:
Avenue 613 - anything goes with optional twist (sound of birds singing, smell of flowers blooming)
The Shabby Tea Room - Pretty in Pink
Just Inspirational Challenges - Friends or Family
A Creative Romance - Spring Flowers
Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Pastels

Hi everyone!


Hi everyone!

How are you doing?

It feels like forever that I started typing a blog entry. Hope everyone is well. We moved in to our house about a month ago after a wonderful holiday in Portugal and have been busy ever since!! It is wonderful being in the house finally.

I have still been making my cards, I will post a couple up :-)








Thank you for looking!!

Little Fairy


Hi all,

Hope you are all well! Just a random post from me with a card I made for my God Daughters First Birthday a week ago. 

I have been busy recently, we have had our bathroom fitted so we now have a bath, sink and toilet woohoo! I have finished all of the bedrooms so we just need carpet fitting now which will be within the next couple of weeks. The next big task is to fit our kitchen but we have built about 4 units ourselves so far. Hopefully about a month or so and we will be in... :-)

Hope to post again soon.

Hiatus

Hi all,

I have decided to have a blogging hiatus, just for a little while... I find I don't have enough time for crafting at the moment what with trying to get the house ready to move in to and work. I also have to start a new job in a month as I am on rotation so have a few things going on currently which means I'm going to take a short break from blogging.

I will continue to work for my Forever Friends design team and may occasionally post the odd card if I get chance, I just thought it would be good to announce that I may not be as regular as usual rather than leave you in the dark!

We are looking to move in to our house in the next month or two so hopefully it won't be long until I have my craft room up and running and can start making cards regularly!!

Thanks for all of your support recently, I will continue to comment on your blogs too!!

Thanks for looking

21st Birthday Card








Hi everyone,

Hope you have had a lovely weekend and week!

I spent last weekend at home in Norfolk with my parents after they returned from their holiday in Egypt. 

I have made this card for my best friend for her 21st birthday. I must admit, I absolutely loved how this one turned out! Probably one of my favourites and I think that might be down to the gorgeous flowers, they remind me of all the lovely flowers out at the moment! Thank you so much Di ;-)

The image is from kanban crafts and I used snippets of white card for the butterfly and the swirlies! All of the flowers are from wild orchid crafts, absolutely stunning! Background paper from kanban crafts too. Topped with glitter, pearls and a gorgeous wooden heart bought off ebay!

A little giveaway




Hi all!

I had a little clear out of one of my craft drawers today and have these wooden stamps I have hardly used. Some of them haven't even been inked! They may catch your eye, or they may be suitable for the younger people you know!

I wondered if anybody would be interested in these or could give them a good home?

If so, please leave a comment on this post and I will draw a name out of a hat in a months time.

Draw closes 20th April.

If you would like to put the pic on your sidebar you may but it is not a requirement. Also, I would love it if you could become a follower.

Thanks for looking!
