Jeremy Fisher - Hexagon Easel Card

Here's a quick card made from the Jeremy Fisher CD, I printed off the Easel Page but thought the card was too small so I used my Crafters Companion Christmas Embossing Board as there is a Hexagon shape on there to make it bigger!  I used backing papers from the CD, Core'dinations, stamped the sentiment and the fish and then used some Card Candi for embellishments.

Thanks for looking :-)

Tale of Tom Kitten Card

Oh WOW new Beatrix Potter launched from Crafters Companion!!! Haven't managed to get round to making anything yet from the new CDs but thought I would show something made a little while ago from the Tale of Tom Kitten CD. It was a card for my daughters friend on her birthday, she loved it!

Thanks for popping by and taking a look!

Paintbox Poppets Box Card!

Another post! - 2 in a day, OMG!  I am trying to make up really for lack of blogging!!

Here's a card I have made today using Paintbox Poppets again!  I got the idea of the card design shape from Franki of Franki's Crafty Touch. It is made from a sheet of A3 card and when made fits it an 8x8 envelope which I have made using the Enveloplus so its all matching!!!

I used Pink Core'dinations quite a bit as you can see and punched the edges using an EK Success Border Punch "Dots and Swirls".  I have used the decoupage from the CD and added a couple of sentiments, flowers and gems!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! :-)

Paintbox Poppets - 1st card

Been ages since I posted I know, it's just my PC decided to give up on me last Sunday and I am still waiting on a new part!! Luckily though my daughter has let me use her laptop but I had problems trying to upload my pictures from my phone but have now finally got it to work!!!

So here is my 1st card from the new Crafters Companion CD - Paintbox Poppets! It is such an adorable CD I think me and everyone out there who has got it - Love it!!!!  I had a couple of crafty hours with my friend Franki from Franki's Crafty Touch near where I live and with both made a card in under 2 hours, unheard from me, it usually takes me a lot longer!!!
The card is now sitting proud along side Franki's at her shop as "demo" cards, hope you all like it :-)

Thanks for stopping by!

Liebster Award

Oh my, what a surprise!!!  The lovely Donka has awarded me the Liebster award - Thank you so much!!!!

The idea of the LIEBSTER BLOG AWARD is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread the knowledge and readership.

To accept the award, you must:
  1. Link back to the person who gave it and to thank them for thinking of you.
  2. Post the award to your blog.
  3. Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
  4. Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know. ‘Liebster’ in German means ‘dearest, so to carry on the Liebster tradition, I am going to pass this award on to 5 people whose blogs have been an inspiration to me.
