Hi everyone
Just popped on to tell you I've had surgery on my arm/wrist to
insert plates, pins and screws. I am still in a lot of pain and worst of
all not able to craft and it's driving me bonkers. I've got to go back to
the fracture clinic in 3 weeks and I do hope it will be a lot better
by then.
I hope you can bear with me for a few weeks peeps and I'll be back for sure

Have  a great day

Pretty in Pink

Good morning everyone
For today's card I've used delicate pink colours.
I've made the flowers from white Foamiran and coloured them with 'Pink Petunia' Versa Magic'
ink then dusted them with crushed ice. I've ripped the paper at the top
and added different types of stamens to add interest.

Good Morning everyone
This is a card I did a few days ago before I broke my bones in my arm and wrist.
I had spring in mind when I  chose the colours.
Firstly I inked randomly onto white card with 'Spiced Marmalade' distress ink.
I then made an arrangement  using twigs from the garden, sisal, foam wheat sprigs,
frosted berries, stamens, natural moss and  an MDF bird.
I've made the large flower from white Foamiran, my
favourite product and coloured it with oil pastels.

Butterfly Frame

Hi everyone
So, who's an absolute numpty then, that would be me!!!
Fell off a footstool yesterday, it was only 12 inches off the floor, and I've
gone and broken not only my wrist but arm aswell. So if I'm a
little quiet on here, don't despair I'll be back before you know it.
Fortunately I have a couple of cards to post in the next few days.
I am in plaster for 6 weeks and will be going stir crazy if I can't get in my craftroom.

Anyway enough of me me I'm sharing a card using a gorgeous chipboard
called 'Butterfly Frame'  from Crafty Enjoyments online shop.
I've made the flowers from white Foamiran and coloured them with Tsukineko Versa Magic 'Pink Petunia' ink then dusted them with crushed ice.
I've added voile, die cut leaves and pearls to finish.

Easter Greetings

Hi everyone
Back from a fabulous creative weekend with Anna Marie from Anna Marie
Designs, she is such a lovely lady and so inspirational. We crammed
in 7 lovely projects.  I'll upload photo's of my makes shortly so you can see them.

For today's card it's another one for Easter as it's not too far away.
I just love these papers from Pion Design called 'Easter Greetings'
the photo just doesn't do them justice as they really are stunning.
I've added a chipboard Egg that I've mounted onto dotty card and added pearls.
I've made the flowers from white Foamiran, and coloured them with versa-magic ink. I am addicted to this stuff and if you haven't tried it yet have a go it is so easy and fun to use.

Happy Anniversary

Good morning peeps
I'm so looking forward to this weekend as I am off to the beautiful
Cotswolds today for  a two day craft workshop starting tomorrow with the
wonderful Anna Marie from Anna Marie Designs. So I hope I come back
with loads of new inspiration.
Today's card is very simple but I have to say very time consuming as each
of the flowers on the heart were handmade out of Foamiran, and I just popped a few pearls
in the centres. I've used contrasting lemon papers from Galeria Papieru WET PAINT 11
and distressed the edges. I've popped a paper lace square doily behind the centre panel
and just added a sentiment at the bottom.

Good morning everyone
Back today with a butterfly themed card using fabulous silver grey
and lilac papers from Galeria Papieru WET PAINT 111. All the papers
are double sided and are just lush.
I've made the flower out of  white Foamiran and inked it to match the papers.
The die cut butterflies put me in the mood for spring. I've used a Martha Stewart
punch for the silver centre panel and  tucked some voile under to add more texture.
The Foamiran was from  Crafty Enjoyments so check their website out for gorgeous Lemoncraft
papers, Foamiran, and to die for chipboards. They have a special all week offer on at the moment that ends on Sunday, plus if you're a first time customer you get an extra 10% off.
