Hope everyone is well peeps. Had a real cardy day today and even did the PTW challenge IN TIME and did my first cute card Thursday challenge at the same time (same card for both lol xx) !!!! Hope you enjoy this little lot xx


Woodware Wedding set stamped onto vellum and a touch of Glamour Dust. Nestabiltes to mat and layer using silver and pearlised card and the die cut hearts are from the Cuttlebug heart set for kids!! I love those funky shapes - far too good for kids if you ask me lol xx White organza ribbon is from my stash. I hope the lady I did these for likes them.






This is my card for our card club challenge next week (Saughall ladies, if you are looking, skip this bit lol xx). Our challenge this month was inspired by Michelle @ Poppicraft's challenge a few weeks back but with a twist - this was 4-3-2-1 so 4 brads, 3 blooms, 2 pieces of ribbon and 1 square. Other than that, you could use whatever you want -haaaaa!!! Brads, ribbons and blooms are from the wonderful Poppicrafts and the paper is Pink Petticoat. The square is Nestabilites with a bit of lilac glitter. I can't help myself with the glitter folks - I LOVE the stuff. You should see our cat sometimes cos she sits by me and gets covered with the stuff - fabby tabby she is lol xx



OK this is not my usual style but I was cutting out some small white flowers with my Cricut for one of the cards for card club and I was about the throw the negative bit away when I thought how nice it was - almost like lace. It inspired me to do this. The paper is Pink Petticoat, the lace is from Hobbycraft (I think!!) with a bit of black narrow ribbon tied with it, the brads are actually giant brass paper fasteners from Staples and the black dots in between the cut out flower shapes are peel offs.





Ahh I saved my fave till last. This is my card for the PTW challenge. The stamp is Maggie Dressing Up from Funky Kits - I love that stamp. And have you noticed how much better my stamping is getting, cos it was pretty awful not that long ago!! This is thanks to my absolutely lovely friend who I won't name but she will know who she is - she has helped me loads so thank you chicken - love ya loads and you are a star xxxxx The papers are Pink Petticoat with a bit of Dawny doodles ie the fake stitching. I added a bit of Glamour Dust (yes again, I know, can't help it lolxx) and pink liquid pearls for her necklace which I got from Creative Pastimes in Ellesmere Port. The ribbon is from my stash.

Hi Dawny....What a lovely stash of cards. All so different. I love the pale lilac card with the flowers, so very pretty. You are a very talented lady.

I was eating in the conservatory this evening, when thud a sparrowhawk landed with a dove in its talons. It plucked the bird in front of the glass doors. I couldn't move in case I frightened him away and he lost his kill. You and Richard would have loved it, I know you love your birds of prey. Only got a pic of the feathers left behind!!!

Have a great weekend, lol

How busy have you been??? LOL x
I love everything here. The wedding stationery is so understated that it really says something. I adore the lilac card and think it's really cheeky of you to do a 4-3-2-1! LOL again!!! And I can't believe your stamping was ever iffy -that last card is out of this world. What an inspiration you are! By the way, take a look at my blog -I've posted a card using Hetty!!!! How proud ;-)
