The weather is damp and miserable here today, Apologies for not being about lately but its been a bit hectic and have had a rotten cold where I have not wanted to do too much, thankfully it has now gone. In fact I nearly forgot that I had a showcase today, so here I am at 7.30 in the morning getting it ready. 
This week it is New Home and I had great fun making this one, well after a while as a couple got thrown in the bin as they just did not look right. Right thats enough of me waffling on.

Yesterdays Dreams....

I just cannot believe it`s friday already and I have made 3 cards this week with another laying on my desk waiting for me to plan and make, I think my mojo has gone into overdrive.
The image for this card was sent to me by the lovely and very talented Sheenagh Hulin.
When I first saw the image, I had no idea what to do with it, so I had to bite the bullet and see what I could do. It has taken me nearly 2 days to come up with this as I kept changing my mind. At first I was not happy but the girls from Jem`s Designs facebook page have given me such lovely comments, I had to put it on my blog. Hope you like it. The image is from Jem`s Designs Yesterday Dreams.
The background paper came from MCS
Spellbinders Adorning Squares, Decorative Labels One, Frame One.
Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.
I printed the centre image twice so I could decoupage and glossy accent the centre picture, the ribbon was white so coloured with promarkers and flowers from stash.
Thank you for popping by.

Great Grandma to Shoes..........

You could be thinking what is all this about with a title like that lol.
Well let me explain, a few weeks ago my beautiful granddaughter Ashley told me  I am to be a great grandma in June, so of course I had to search for my knitting needles and get knitting and yes the card making was put to one side. I had forgotten how much I had enjoyed knitting. 2 cardigans and 1 pair of bootees in five days with the 2nd pair in progress.
Now we come to the shoes.
 I was sent two beautiful images by the lovely Sheenagh Hulin to make a card and hopefully be accepted for the design team at Jem`s Designs, unfortunately I was not well at the time and with other commitments I was unable to take part.
Jem`s Designs now have a facebook page and you can find it HERE.
They are a fabulous bunch of girls who make fabulous cards. Obviously I wanted to make a card and Sheenagh very kindly gave me permission to use the images and I have entered it for a competition on the facebook page.
Jem`s Designs have some fabulous Cd`s and I just love the last 2 they have just bought out.. A Swan`s Song and Wish upon a Rose which sold out when aired on C & C last week, so glad I got my order in. To see all the Cd`s click HERE.
You can also find Steampunk for you ladies that enjoy making these.
The image is from The Fancy Shoes cd available above.
Neenah Card, Silver and black card from stash
I printed the image 3 times so I could decoupage the frame with shoe and leaves
(leaves were fiddly to cut round) then the shoe again on its own and also the flowers in the top corner which I glittered with Pee Wee.
I added a couple of flourishes kindly given to me by Lindsay Craftymonster thank you. Pearl gems added  and for the final touch a metal flower with rose on top.
Thank you for popping by and hope you have enjoyed your visit.
