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.

Thank you for passing by and looking.

Toadstools

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
