I love a bargain ...

Well blogger finally let me on today. I gave up yesterday after numerous tries for some reason it just wouldn't load. But today 1st attempt WOOHOO .

If you're like me you'll like a crafty bargain. Well this was mine at the weekend. £1.50 each or all 4 for £4.00, good eh ! I know that the patterns are fairly old but still a fab treat. I got them from a new little stall that's opened in our market in Derby. There were good named stamps at silly prices, lots of 12 x 12 papers at 5 sheets for a £1 and lots of other scrummy crafty goodies. Needless to say I'l be going back this friday to have another look. I can hear my purse crying already LOL.

Order for a friend ...

My friend asked me to make a card for her niece's 1st birthday. I've used a Mo Manning image (Kiki), which is one of my favourites. She's coloured using pencils and sansador and a little glamour dust. The paper and embellies are from my stash. In fact the paper my MIL got for me and is from a really pretty pack, not sure of the name.

Hope she liked it and had a lovely birthday.

Chooo chooo Dad ...

Well my Dad was 71 years young at the weekend and this is the card I made for him. It's using one of Mo Manning's images, which I love because my Dad worked for years on the railways in Derby.
I've coloured him using pencils and Sansador and added floc and glamour dust to the steam.
The papers and card are all from my stash. Actually the base card is the back of an A4 pad. Very useful for boys and men's cards. And I love using garden twine on men's cards, it's better than ribbon at times.
I'm pleased to say that he loved it.

Wedding season is upon us ...

My friend has got 5 weddings this year and asked if I'd make the cards for her. No pressure !
This is the 1st one and I thought it fitted the bill for the challenge over at Pear tree designs as it's Valentines/anything to do with love. They offer a weekly challenge and this is the 1st time I've entered, so fingers crossed.

The card is a mix of SU and papermill, the image is by Mo Manning ( coloured using pencils and sansador ). All the embellies and ribbon are from my stash.

My friend loved the card and I'm just waiting to see if the happy couple did too.
