I am home for a couple of days,nice to see family again,i have made a quick card and used the windswept stamp from funkykits,as its so windy today here i thought it was verry apt,hope you like her.i coloured it with dovecraft brushmarkers,used an off cut of pearls and cream satin ribbon.the usual sentiment stamp,the backing papers are from my stash .

i visited a little craft shop too today and bought a lovely snowflake stamp,some ribbon ,cello bags and some dst.i will have to curb my spending on stash from now on ,its getting silly the amount i spend on craft stuff,i guess we crafters are all guilty of that eh.

something different

I thought i would try my hand at doodling,it was i had a go at making a card ,this is made with a free stamp off of craft stamper mag,k and co sparkly sweet papers and a nestie scalloped oval frame.the flowers are just circles that are cut into round the outside and scruffied up,then layered together and secured with a brad,have a go freehand doodling,you dont have to be an artist and its quite effective.

It feels like Winter

The weather is so awful here today it feels like winter,maybe thats why i am making xmas cards,This is a cute card made using the free stamp from last months do crafts mag azine,i used papermania backing papers ,the red scalloped card has been embossed with the snowflake folder from cuttlebug,a pnch created the snowflakes and the sentiment is from trimcraft,hope you like .it

lovely day

Hi ,

i have had a lovely day,went to camarthen craft shopping,not many shops there unfortunately so i only bought a small snowflake punch and a couple of mags,then went visiting friends for an hour,lovely steph and mark who run a holiday park called cross parks in broadmoor near tenby.

Home then to do a quick card and catch up on my pals at trimcraft.

I used the pretty" snowflake " stamp from funkykits ,the little girl is perfect for xmas cards,the papers are from winter wonderland [dovecraft] i think,coloured with dovecraft brush markers and finished with a ribbon and a flower.i havent added a sentiment,i dont think it needs one,may change my mind at a later date and personalise it.
