Wish Upon a Star

Hello again, another beautiful day and more time spent in the craft room.

Today, another Christmas card.  This time I printed out Sugar Nellie's "Wish Upon a Star".  She's coloured with copics and she's got plenty of crystal art glitter.  That's all I did with this one, very clean and simple!


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I'm entering this card in this weeks Merry Monday challenge here...

Snowman Down

Hello all, hope you're all keeping well and enjoying this beautiful weather.

I've had the week off and today found a little time for crafty play.

I made a Christmas card, mostly because they're my favourite cards to make, and you can never have too many!

The image is "Snowman Down" by Whipper Snapper and I coloured with copics.  The frame die is from Papertrey Ink (Shaker Shapes - Rectangles) and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley (Handwritten Phrases - Christmas).  The sequins are a mix from Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says.


That's it from me for now.  Take care.

It's been a while...

since I last showed my face here.  Many will have forgotten me, many more deleted me.  Hello to anyone still out there, I hope you've been well in my absence.

So here's a little catch-up...

I have been spending some quality time with my family and just generally enjoying life.  My daughter just started her first full time job after gaining her A levels last year.  She got an A* and 2 As, we are so very proud of her.

The Ginger kitty Milo has grown into a very handsome young man...



and Piglet is just getting stranger with age...


Trev now has two Geckos, 6 poison dart frogs and 6 tree frogs.... Don't ask!

I bought him a shed for Christmas, so hopefully all the amphibians will be living in that before long.

I have been crafting in one form or another since I last "saw" you, either crochet, card making or messing around with something else.  I fancied doing a little colouring, so I printed Saturated Canary's Ava on an A4 piece of Copic X-Press It card and just sat and coloured for a white.  I've absolutely no idea what I will do with her, but I love how she turned out.  She's been coloured with Copics.


I'm not sure how often I'll post anything, but hopefully I'll see you again soon.  Take care and thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Christmas Turtle & Dove

Hello my lovelies, hope you are all keeping well.  Sorry I haven't been about, I'm finding I have less and less time for blogging these days and I can't even really tell where the time is going.  Things are definitely a lot busier at work, which is where I would normally find time to visit people and comment.

Anyhoo, I have a Christmas card to show you today.  This one is for one of my brothers and his wife who loves turtles.  I actually coloured an image, it seems an age since I last sat down with a copic in my paw.

Pop-Up Box Card

Hello my lovelies, hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and have been able to enjoy the gorgeous weather we've been having.

The garden is looking lovely, although the daily chore of having to water it isn't much fun!

I've been seeing these pop-up box cards everywhere recently and just had to have a go.  I admit this was my second attempt, the first didn't quite go according to plan!  I found a great tutorial on YouTube.  As I'd recently bought a SU Owl Builder punch and had been making Owls pretty much non-stop (kinda overrun with Owls now), I added a couple to this card.  It's my favourite colour scheme again aqua/pink.  Don't think I'll be giving this one to anyone, it's currently sitting on my desk at work, brightening the place up.

She Passed!!

Hello everyone, hope you all had a good weekend.

My SIL and I went to Biggin Hill on Sunday.  Neither of us had anything in particular on our shopping list.  I was doing really well until I came across a stall selling Project Life products.  I bought my daughter a kit for Christmas and decided I just had to have one, so when I saw it, of course I had to get it!!  Ooops!

Never mind eh!  The first page is sorted as my daughter passed her driving test yesterday, so proud of her.  First time too.  This is the card I made her.  We took a couple of pictures too, so I can scrapbook it.

Make a Wish

Hello

Hope you're all doing well and enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend last week.

Sorry I haven't been around to see you all recently, I've been really busy and then a bit poorly.  Hopefully all behind me now so will be getting round to see you all soon.

Off to Biggn Hill on Sunday with my SIL for more crafty shopping, but I have absolutely nothing on my list.  Be interesting to see what I come home with!!

Today I have a birthday card I made for a friend.  It's very clean and simple and PINK!  She really likes pink, but doesn't like fussy at all.  So hopefully she'll like this.  A list of ingredients used is below.
