New Home

I made this card this morning for a dear friend who is moving next week.  The shape of the card was cut on my Silhouette using Birds Cards SVG.

I used a roller to spread the big and juicy ink (waterfall)

Birthday Wishes

A friend requested a non-flowery card for her Stepdaughter yesterday so this is it.  I sent her a photo and fortunately, she loved it.

The lattice cut was made by my trusted Silhouette Cameo, I just love using this machine it still makes me smile when it is working at its best.  I'm pretty sure the cutting file is by Birds Cards.

Thank you for passing by and looking.

Good morning all, I have been looking at this Le Suh image for some time and finally made a card from it.  It comes from a Le Suh 3D decoupage book I have had for some time now.  I think the images are perfect for male or female nature lovers so I may be making a few more cards from these images.

Thank you for passing by and looking

Early Morning

Good Morning all, it’s very windy here and it has woken me up so here I am.  I made this card as I wanted to use my sponges that I bought at the Ally Pally show in September 2016, I don't get a chance to go to many of the craft shows so I really enjoyed this one, I went with my sister and we had a fabulous day.  I also met a good blogging friend Wendy Townsend we speak via the Internet and have never met before so that was lovely.   
I haven’t been able to do much crafting for a while but I am back into it again now.  

The Stamp I have used for this card is IndigoBlu Peony (Designed by Kay Halliwell-Sutton)
I have used the sponge technique as the background for this card using Tim Holtz spiced marmalade Distress Ink by Tim Holtz. The banner stamp is a freebie from a magazine. The beautiful hat pins are made by Wendy Townsend and you will find the link to her blog Here, Spanish Crafter

I would like to Enter this card for the
