Hello Everyone..

I'm back with my DT project for Christmas Crafts All Year Round  and we have a theme as always and it is.... ANYTHING GOES  with the opition of "SNOW BUDDIES "..

Aren't these guys awesome..freebie images from Kajans Scrapblog..

Coloured with my markers and then I inked around the edges of the circle..added snow splatters with a white gel pen, not as much fun as splattering ink...
Their little hats were trimmed with flower soft and fun flock mixed together..

Die cut out music notes and just kept it pretty simple ..stamped the sentiment and white embossed..

So there go, a bit quieter than my post below, but do scroll down and  check it out, there is so much to see..

Hello everyone..

Hope you are all well and keeping busy..Sunday here today and it has gone by pretty fast as I was busy doing lots of housework and a bit of crafting, okay lots of crafting and a bit of housework, but I was busy and the day flew..just had homemade[ obviously] mac n cheese, was very yummy, and going to pop my post up then watch some telly and call it a night..

Sharing a fun little project I made earlier this week, another for my stash..

A cute little birdhouse and bird nestled inside an array of flowers..

I really enjoyed putting this one together..

Lovely dimension...

Pretty pearls scattered through..

The bird house was cut 5 times and layered up, the bottom half in kraft,last layer, and so was the little bird.. he was cut in white and I just added a bit of sponging on him..

So there we go..thanks so much for stopping by, gosh only 2 more days and it is April..

Hello everyone..

Hope you are well and safe..I have the undesirables down the back not obeying the rules and myself and the nice neighbour have called the cops several dirty piece of nothing blew his nose, as they do, walking up my drive....he was arrested.

Anyway, away from bad stuff and onto a project that went with the DAD card the other day..this one was for the MUM..

She loves orange so that is what she got...

These letters were a soft chipboard,painted white, then gold embossed with a Stampin' up Leaf stamp..I'm gonig to do that again as I really like it..

No matter how I photographed this the letters looked crooked, but they weren't..

Okay, the bottom one my have been a bit skew wiff, just tilt the head slightly and we are good to go..

Lots of flowers from my stash and die cut leaves..

My "V"on my keyboard is all sticky as I spilled my coffee and the "N"is not much better..I cannot use number 3 across the top at all and I found a tomato pip stuck in the middle..I must stop eating and drinking by my computor..

So there we go moans and groans and all, but all in all I am enjoying being locked up and I think today I will make thank you card sets, or tidy my craft flowers and put them all back into colours.. why would I take them out of colours is beyond me, but I did, and now it is so hard to find what I want..

Have a great evening/day and I will see you tomorrow..
Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hello everyone..

I'm sharing a Birthday card I made my Daughter for her last Birthday..

I was going throuhg my dies which took a week, and found the grapes with leaves that I hadn't used for a long time, so set to and die cut out 4 times in white then the gold,and burgundy, then glued all together..added green card on the leaves..this made them really thick like chipboard..

Made the mirror with mirror card stock and a nice die cut frame, nearly blinded myself photographing the card..

The shoes were embossed and die cute and left white, just coloured the soles..

I adore the Nuvo Gems..I bought three more bottles not too long ago...just in case.

And just to show  I did things on the inside too..

So there you go again, thank you so much for stopping by and I will see you tomorrow..

Hello everyone..

Hope you are all well and staying safe..just had my eggs for breakfast, it is 7am Wednesday morning and still a tad dark, oh, okay, I just looked out from behind the curtains and it is day at home playoing in my craftroom, thank goodness for craft.

So I made this card ages ago and it was sitting in my folders and it is time to share..

I had a lot of fun making this, I always do love to make scenes..

Lots of dies..mountains, trees, rocks[ which is an upside down cloud die in grey]...Glitter cardstock for the water, my boat,oars and post for securing the boat dies and a piece of string..

The lettering was little chipboard letters which I painted and added something I cannot remember and it bubbled and blistered but was a happy accident which I really liked..

And there is a side has a happy birthday die cut inside..

And the postie came to my front door threw this on the step and took off..

I'm a happy only took 2 months to get here..

So there we go,  I'm off to do something, corrugated card today, found a neat box and pulled it apart and my head got full of ideas so jotted them down real quick andgoing to play today..

Thank so much for stopping by, see you tomorrow..

Hello Everyone..

My first morning on my PC as a retired person...I slept in today until 6.20am..awesome, a whole hour of extra sleep, and I LOVE my sleep..we put our clocks back weekend after this one on the 4th, so that will take a bit of getting used to, but I do enjoy Winter, so that's alright.[ even more this year as I do not have to go out in it if I don't want too..yay.]

So onto a project..

I white embossed some flower stamps and played with Nuvo Shimmer  Powders..

The shine or sheen is very pretty and fun to watch the colours burst in the water..

Added some Gems an a die cut sentiment..

Then I moved up the colours to purples...

And a LOT more water to make these powders move..

Slightly different angle and more true to the colours...

These  powders are pretty clever with blues and deep pinks bleeding out to make purple and you can see all the pigments coming alive as the water plays with them..

You really need the water though..this one I added sequins..

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by and all the good wishes on my countdown to this wonderful time of my life, I'm so ready for this..

 And New Zealand has gone into lock down for 4 weeks..the streets are empty, we will beat please stay safe everyone, and as my  Mum used to say, If you have an egg in the house, you have a meal in the house, so I bought a whole tray and should be growing feathers in 4 weeks..


My lovely card from Carol  thank you so much..
