Morning everyone

Well, it is the weekend and I guess a lot of us will be out Christmas shopping, so what better card and image to share today than this.

These images are great for a quicker card because there is no colouring.  This is one of the pre-colored images from LOTV.

The papers are from  a Joy pad purchased from Noor Designs UK and again I delved into my stash

I think this would double up as an all occasion card really, it is suitable for birthday or Christmas.

Thanks for looking today and have a great weekend

Hi everyone

Here I have a photo of an altered Gift bag I made a little while ago when I was building stock for the Craft Fairs.

The large tree is from a Dutch Doobadoo template from Noor Designs UK.  The hessian tree is from a set of decorations I purchased locally and the papers are from LOTV

This is quite plain but I actually do like it!

Thanks for looking

Hi everyone

Today I have a quick card to share, again using the Vintage and Shabby Chic style which I so love.   This is another card from my saved card photos.

I opted for quite a quick card using an image from either Magic Moonlight or Janet K ( I love these freebie images), papers from LOTV and items from my stash.  The die is a Joy die purchased from Noor Designs UK.

Thanks for looking today,

Hi everyone,

Brrrr what a cold day it was yesterday!  I hope it is not going to be like this all week although I think it is forecast!

Today I have a Christmas tag to share which I made to go on a friend's Christmas present this year.  Fortunately I do not think she will look at my Blog so I think I am safe.

I picked up a pack of bought tags from somewhere that I cannot remember now!  Well, when I opened them out I just could not use them - I was immediately inspired to use them on my own tags as toppers.  They were ideal.

This was quite a quick make really. The photo does not do it justice.  I simply delved into my stash and somehow it just went right first time.  That does not always happen as we all know!  Will I make more?  You bet I will.  It is great to use up scraps.

Thanks for looking and keep cosy

Morning everyone

I am gradually making headway with sharing my saved card photos.  This one was a fairly quick card (quick for me).  I hooked my papers out again from Live and Love Crafts and also the image is from there.  The two dies are both Tim Holtz on the edge and the snowflake is a Cheery Lynn die.

Everything else came from my stash.

As always thanks for looking today

Hi everyone

Brrrr it is cold today!  Thankfully it is not snowing and blowing like it was yesterday though.

This is my second posting today, just scroll down if you wish to see my first post featuring the double easel card.

You will notice that I am really hooked on using the lovely Star stencil by Dutch Doobadoo from  

When I made this duo I was working toward inspiration from three Challenges.  The stars form the base of the card itself and then I made a co-ordinating tag. The lovely angel images are from Live and Love Crafts as are the flowers.  As theChallenge for Liveand LoveCrafts is a Tic Tac Toe and glitter is called for there is lashings of glitter in place of the Dutch Doobadoo Structure  paste which I would normally use.  The Stickles Stardust and Glamour Dust don't show on the photographs but the gold Stickles does thankfully.
Can you see the heart die-cut peeping through at the top of the card?  That one is a Magnolia die.

There are also La La Land banner die-cuts at each side of the card, these have been inked and glittered.  I cannot believe how well these cut, they are a real joy to work with.

The base of the card and the tag are embossed but again it it hard to see on the photos.
I have added cheesecloth, pompom trims and lashing of lace.

AND I loved making these!

I would like to enter these into the following Challenges:

As always thanks for looking

Hi everyone.

It is my turn to post again today on Kraftyhands Blog at

I am sure you will recognise these lovely papers ( Watercolour Blends Set 1) from  I just love these papers, and particularly the blue and turquoise blends (or maybe you had noticed! lol

Here we have a double easel card I have made using the lovely Dutch Doobadoo star template.  The edges are tinged with the Dutch Doobadoo Structure Paste.  The image is from Magic Moonlight and the embellishments from  Live and Love Crafts.

Take a look at  Kraftyhands online shop and I bet you will find lots of different combinations using this layout with their lovely products.

As always, thanks for looking, and have a great day!
