Before I say anything here, I must apologise to the lovely Katty. I got a pif from her and duly photographed it. Then trying to be tidy, put all the lovely goodies away in their proper place. Then what did I do??? Only went and deleted the photo without saving it on here first. If I hadn't put them tidy, I could have done another photo but now they are mixed up with the rest of my stash. So I am truly sorry Katty, but the goodies were just wonderful. So there is some yummy pif blog candy going here for the first 3 comments. And Katty, I'll send you something nice as well hunny xxx

I have been a bit naughty this week and treated myself to some Nestabilities. How fabbiedoodles are they? I got them yesterday and then realised that I hadn't ordered the spacer plate so that I could use them on my Big Shot. Well panic set in cos I just wanted to have a play with them, like NOW lol xx. I rang a shop that sells loads of Sissix stuff and they had a plate that was suitable so I set off to pick it up. Well they were supposed to close at 4.30pm but I got lost on the way (I hadn't been there before and yes, it was yet another blonde moment!!). I still was not there at 4.15pm so I rang them to tell them and bless them, they waited for me. How nice was that. So a big thank you to the lovely ladies at The Craft Bug in Chirk, near Wrexham xx. And to Ruth for your help and advice xx.

Had a real cardy day today and this is what I have done. As always, please excuse the dreadful photography. Any tips on how to photograph your cards would be really appreciated peeps, cos everyone elses always look brilliant. -

For my nephew James - he loves Liverpool and I thought the turtle download from PP was just perfect for him. The sentiments are mine done on the computer

Spot the Nestabilites!!! PP papers and the ribbons, white paper flower and big diamond brad are from the fabulous Poppicrafts. The lilac flowers are from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port (great shop and well worth a visit - the girls are soooo helpful, there is all sorts of wonderful things in there and they really care about their customers!!!!!) This photo does not do those beautiful flowers justice.
For my Aunty Jean and Uncle Ed - I had a go at the frame card from PTW challenge last week (I'm always behind lol xx) and I did a box to put it on. A great big thank you to Jo K for the instructions for the paper bow xxx . Papers, flowers and Totally Ewe download from PP, ribbons from Poppicrafts and liquid pearls to finish off. The blooms and brad on the paper bow are also Poppicrafts


And another - this one is for my Mother in law. PP papers. ribbons from Inspirations, stamps are Fresh New Day and the cutey little chick is from my local garden centre - I couldn't resist sitting him on the frame.




And a box to put it in with a matching paper bow. Brad and blooms from Poppicrafts. I did this one after the pink one and this one is much better - got the hang of it now. Still not as neat as Jo's though so better keep practicing

Hi Dawny....Nothing wrong with your photography. Love the little chick card, so cute. They are all great. Do you ever get blank moments and everything goes pear shaped??

Nice, shop people, waiting for you.

Top work Dawny you have been busy these are realy gorgeous ,love them all ,Dawnie xxxx

Dawny P said...

Cheryl, I do get blank moments to be honest. It's usually when I haven't made anything for a few days. I once sat and looked at a blank piece of paper for hours without anything coming to me!! And if I am trying to do extra nice things, for example to submit to a mag or for a competition, you can bet my grey cells pack up completely!!! And yes, I thought it was nice of the girls in the shop, especially the night before the bank holiday when they probably just wanted to get home.

Your bows are just beautiful :) All your cards are gorgeous. The scallops on my card are punched circles, attached to the back of the card - I could never cut them that neatly lol :)

Dawny P said...

Thanks Jo. Although I cant really take the credit for the bows cos the instructions were yours. But they are just lovely and I can't stop making them. I will never ever buy shop ones again xx
