A birthday card

just found a Wallace and Grommit kit I bought last year...thats what lock down does to you...make me tidy up my craft room and frighten myself to death by finding all this stuff.....



I thought that this image would make a cool masculine card for my cousin Chris....
at the end of June....I did have fun with the dies...and my favorite embossing folder again...
Well the weather has changed but still no rain here and my garden is so crispy that walking on the lawn feels really strange.....
I hope you are keeping well out therein blog land....take care.

an anniversary card.....

I have been having a play with my Heartfelt creations pansy stamps and dies....again only embossing in gold ....




the background die is the heartfelt intricate swirl frame ...the pansies have had the addition of some prills ...and the sentiment is also a heartfelt one....
thanks for popping by my blog today and stay safe and take care .

hubbys christmas card for this year...

I know I am early getting it done but I do love this LOTV image....





the card shape is made from a paper boutique die and the sentiment is a Sue Wilson one....
I am looking forward to seeing all the new christmas die that come out in June and July...I really shouldn't buy anything new as all the stuff I have discovered I have yet to use is giving me a guilty conscience .....
I hope you are staying safe and well....

New blogger

Well I finally plucked up the courage to try the new blogger and I have to say that it is okay....just took a while to click on all the icons and buttons to see what they do...finally found the new post button and even managed to do a permanent link....
I have scheduled 2 posts so I just have to see if they go live but all in all not as scary as I thought it was going to be...I really hate change....
I hope you are all keeping well out there in blog land and staying safe....
Take care

a christmas stocking....

another one of last years purchases that didn't get used.....


I made this into an over the edge card as there is a half die in the set to enable that....its a tattered lave one again I really did buy a lot last year I must have been on the naughty step for much of the time....
the bells are from a flexi frame set and the backing paper from the over the mantle cd....
Ihope you are having a lovely day today and doing some crafting....take care

May Rudolph day challenge.....

I am still going through some of my pre printed sheets from other projects and doing some using up....and thought I would post for the challenge this month.....at Maureens.....




the backing papers are from the tattered lace over the mantle cd as is the poinsettia....just a tattered lace sentiment and a few snowflakes....I cut the base card shape on my scan and cut....
another card for my christmas card box...this lockdown is certainly helping me to get my cards done....
stay safe and take care.

playing with my Heartfelt stamps and dies....

I love these sets of dies and stamps....and you don't always have to colour them to make realistic flowers


I have used the eyelet lace frames and the diamond basics and the flowers are oakberry lane blossoms embossed in gold on cream card.....a bit of gold matting and layering...it wasnt a quick card but Iam pleased with the look.....
I hope you are well and safe out there.....
