This is a cheeky card I did for Jan for a forthcoming workshop and she loved it - I thought I would share it with you. It's just a little easy peasy pop up and I have used a couple of Sissix die cuts, some PP paper, gold peel offs (well they do come in useful at times!!) and for the edge of the pelmet and feet on the bath I used gold Glamour Dust which I got from Creative Pastimes.
This last one was inspired by Mich's tutorial which you can check out here. It is a wonderful way to use ribbon and her instructions are so easy to follow. The paper as always is PP and the blooms are Poppicrafts. The lace and ribbon is from Hobbycraft (I think lol xx) The front bit opens to show the greeting - I just thought it was a bit different. Thanks for sharing xx

Isn't this THE most adorable stamp - I just love her. Katharina is giving away this little beauty to celebrate her 30th birthday so pop over to her blog and take a look. She has the most wonderful stuff there.
I have been awol from the blog for a while due to work commitments - I work in the Finance industry and this time of year is completely mad for us. Anyway, that is it for another year so normal service will be resumed shortly. Problem is that once you put your bits and pieces away, it seems really hard to get them out again (or is that just me lol xx). I am off for a quick blog hop now to see what I have been missing. Hope you all had a lovely weekend xx

Here is my card for the PTW challenge - Making Waves "the challenge is to use scallops or zigzags (or both if you are really keen). Well I must be keen cos I have used both- the scallops for the frame and the zig zags for the fake stitching. I got the lovely Dottie download from Charmed Cards and Crafts - http://www.charmedcardsandcrafts.co.uk/ - I just love them. I coloured the picture in with Dovecraft Brush Markers and the paper for the 'frame' is my own which I did on the computer. The ribbons are from the fabulous Poppicrafts and as always there is a bit of Glamour Dust here and there lol xx
Same Dotty download here. PP dots and Mad About Cards checked papers and the buttons and scrap of ribbons I found in my stash - no idea where they came from - sorry!! I used watercolour pencils on these so they look a bit 'softer'. Thanks for looking xx
