I had fun yesterday going through my massive box of stamps, and seeing ones  that I have not used for years...... yes they will be back in circulation soon lol.
One of my favourite christmas stamps is the Poinsettia which I nearly always use every year, I`m surprised it has`nt worn out yet.
The stamp is from Creative Expressions which I stamped onto red card several times and once onto green card, embossed with Debbie Moores Gold embossing powder and cut out. Next I used an Embossalicious folder with white card and matted onto red card and matted these onto an 8 x 8 white card, the sentiment was stamped and embossed in red, then cut with spellbinders Fancy Tags 2. Ribbon from stash and a couple of gold peeloffs which I don`t usually use, and a few punched pine leaves.
Thank you for popping by and hope you all have a lovely weekend
whatever you are doing

In the Pink.....

Have you ever had one of those days where you cannot make your mind up what colours to use on a card.........That was me this morning, then I thought I would go out of my comfort zone and use just shades of pink!!!!!!!. I am not a pink person at all, so this was quite hard for me as I dont have much crafty stuff in that colour lol.
The roses on the card I made myself and are my first attempt,I feel quite chuffed
6 x 6 scalloped card,
stamped backing card & main image in Versamagic Pink Petunia.
layered onto flourish card stock from Pinflair.
The rose leaves are the new Signature Dies from Joanna Sheen. Lace, ribbon and jems from stash.
I would like to enter this into:-

Christmas Wreath..

Well here I am again with a card I made on Monday. I got the idea for this from pinterest which was a white on white... mine is`nt lol.
I won`t bore you with any waffle today... well I might after you have seen the card and some piccies too.
6 x 6 white scalloped card, green base card, papers from Dovecraft, centre embossed, Pine punched with Mcgill punch, poinsettia dies and ribbon/jems from stash.
This morning I got a message from my DIL on FB asking if I wanted some card that belonged to her Aunt Christine who sadly passed away a short while ago. Of course I said yes please, well within 15 mins or so my DIL`s mum Mary turned up with it and her boot was stacked to the hilt. Mary did not want the money she has asked me to donate to a little girl who has Leukemia.
These are only 2 piccies there is even more that I have to sort through. I cannot even start to list them all yet. Would you say £50 is good for the donation.

Even More Beautiful......

Hi everybody, it seems ages since I last blogged.... yep a whole 10 days.
Well let me tell you a story lol.
Firstly I had to make my DT samples for Jem`s designs brand new cd`s which were on Create & Craft on Wednesday ( I hope you saw it) I had the pleasure of using the Even More Beautiful cd and wow it is fabulous. The other one is titled Lililicious. They are only available from Create & Craft until 31/8/13 then you can get them from
Once I finished my samples and posted them off to Sue. I had a mad moment.
I have been wanting to decorate the craft/office room for quite a while, so last week when it was at it hottest I decided to do it, what a fool I was lol. It was a case of do a bit have a break, do a bit have a break, so instead of it just taking me a couple of days it took me a week. So of course after that was done I had to buy myself a shelving unit as I could not just let all my boxes of craft sit about willy nilly. Lets just say its tidier but I need some proper A4 containers now to make it look even neater. Please let me know where I can get them, nice and cheap of course.
Well that`s enough of me waffling on.
Here are my samples and a couple of piccies of my room now.
This card shape was hand cut from template, I hope it does not show.
This shape I found on Pinterest
Again this one was cut from template
All the images and backing papers from Jem`s Designs cd.
Flowers and ribbon from stash.
Now for my room,
The strange object to the right of the last piccie is my killer of a cross trainer.
