 Hello everyone,

My friend Beryl had a Birthday not long ago and this was the vintage style card I made for her as she loves vintage...

It was good to get my flowers out again, paint them with gesso, and add them to a die cut floral piece..

I enjoyed painting over the roses on the ladies hat to simmer the colour down and added  one of my new gold Bees from a nail art place.. 

Hand painted some leaves with my water colour paints,
then die cut them out, enjoyed that to..

A side view of the card which was hand delivered as she lives around the corner from me..

The other side..still waiting on my order from MFT of black and white stripe papers, I'm getting low..

And another close up ..

So there we go, Beryl loved her card..good old Beryl, in fact I used to look after her, she was one of my clients and we kept in touch.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

I know it is not mothers Day, we had Mothers Day and I got an air fryer..I managed to destroy pumpkin in it and the spuds took just as long to cook this time as they did in the oven.. depends on your spud I think..[potatoes]..but, I'm having fun with it, chicken is so nice in there, just put a nice rub on it and pop it in there for 20 mins..yum..

Okay, Mothers Day..I made several cards for sale and they went and these are them....

My friend Aussie Annie sent me some die cute and one was a jar, which I used, just have not got round to posting it up, but I really loved the jar die so I went and bought one...and made these jars of flowers..

But first I needed a background and did this with oxide inks by smooshing..

The jars were die cut with acetate and oxide inking card stock..twine tied around the neck of the jar and tied into a bow....

And then I added little tags which were stamps with a sentiment..

A shot showing the gloss of the jar..

A wooden heart on this one and bubbles...

Two with Love....

Two Happy mothers day..

And that is how I used up the rest of my daisy die cuts...

Thank you so much for stopping by...and I'll see you tomorrow..

CAS..Clean and simple..mmm...

Fortunately my sentiment stamp set arrived which  is large set with loads of sentiment on it, so Sympathy it was..

I die cut a tiny snowdrop  flower,,,coloured the leaves and that was pretty much it..

Added some glass bubble gems and stamped the sentiment//

It came out so nice and was so quick...

I made nine more..

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all well and happy, I've finally got into my craftroom for a play and I managed to get done so many projects, I'm so happy to get ahead after such a lull..of course I cannot share just yet, but can share that green and grey work..

I started with patterned vellum I found in one of the drawers, gosh I bought this when I first started crafting about 12 years ago..

After I die cut these cut frames in black card stock, I smooshed over some Nuvo mousse in yellow, which didn't do a great deal..

So moved to the green and got what I wanted...


Then cut a multitude of leaves, flowers, flower centers which I coloured and glued them together, which I find so relaxing and pleasant..

So bunched them altogether and started building cards in which I made 4..and had a few leftovers..

Striped background was in order, not too busy and added a touch of elegance..

And there they are...but needed sentiments..

So went with Birthday...seem to be the most popular..

So there we go, very happy with these for my stash..

Thank you so much for stopping by, and I will see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

Back to share my Design Team project for 613 Avenue Create  and we have an anything goes/option paper piecing..I LOVE paper piecing and had so much fun colouring and fussy cutting this darling little pig..

This little cutie is a freebie at Skogstokiga " Gris"

I printed out this little pig a couple of times, once in white and once in pink.. coloured the bits and inked edges etc...

Made flower centers with yellow card stock punched with a hand held punch..So old school but felt like I had just discovered something new..had a great time.

I die cut out the MB umbrella in white

and in pattern paper, inked the edges and coloured the handle..

Then put it all together...the cute tags were die cut and stamped with a fun sentiment stamp,then added twine..

Made raindrops on front panelof the card with glossy accents and a toothpick dragged up to form a tip..

Then place the oval..

A side view...

and another one to see the rain..

Her cute boots and tiny die cut flowers to fill a void..

And there she is, happy as a pig in...rain.

So do come join us HERE  and check out what my teamies have come up with..

 Hello everyone,

Well, I'm back, all fluffy and healthy again, but didn't enjoy the ride one bit..I rested as asked to do and fluids, well the fluids went on and on and really sick of water now..but it worked and I'm fine now, so thank you so much for the get well wishes and I'm just glad to feel happy and well..

I have a box set of Thank you cards to share today...

Did some die cutting...frames and sunflowers which I coloured and the frames had mousse rubbed over them to add a bit of metal like colour..and I love the new Paper Rose papers that came one day when I was poorly and that gave me a happy buzz..

This is the box I made it hold 5 cards and envelope, [ if I made 5]

But as I only made 4, it hold 4 cards and envelopes...
The large sentiment stamp and die are from Simon Says Stamp called GREETINGS

These were made using Ephemera, gosh, I love using this now..added a some water drop gems and a simple gold sentiment die " Thank you"..and I actually inked the clouds onto the base, but they a bit hard to see..

Then the sunflowers, lace and frames with metal look came ..

And the set all together...these have been popular at my Sons garage, in the shop part of course, so I'm lucky to have that outlet to sell as well as my new page on Facebook which I see you are following or liked it so thank you so much for that and for stopping by today..

I'll see you tomorrow..

 Hello everyone,

My turn to be hostess over at LITTLE RED WAGON this week and my theme for this week is masculine..

I really get a kick out of making masculine and what better way to make myself happy is to make a scene....

I started with die cutting and spraying my trees...

They came out really nice...

Then die cut my mountains..

And inked them all up...

Gave then some snow caps...

Then made them a wintery snowy background with oxides and water splatter...

Die cut the background trees...

and placed them in front of the mountains..

Time for the foreground trees...

And that nearly completes my scene..

Just needed to add my gorgeous stag...

a simple Happy and a gold die cut Birthday and my scene is complete..

So bring your masculine projects and link up over HERE

Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll see you tomorrow..
