About Me

My photo

Been crafting in one form or another for too many years to remember.  Enjoy many crafts but  cardmaking and papercraft is my main passion.   I have been married for 42+years and have two lovely daughters and 4 fantastic grandchildren.

Made this one from patterned acetate I had in a pack from Crafters Companion.  I put the shaped card through my ebosser using the embossing folder and cut out my spellbinder butterflies. The greeting was cut  using my cricut.  The shaped card I then put around the acetate, added the embellishments and there we have it.
Happy Easter to all.  Just back from our week away and feeling like time to get back to my workshop.  Got lots of images coloured while I was away so now time to put them together.  Hope everyone has kept safe through the bad weather and speak to you all again soon.

Second in the theme.  used wide ribbon behind her this time which showed the nice summery feel of the card I thought.  Used my embossilicious spotty folder for the background.

Latest card to add to the stash.  Used my CC toppers and nestabilities.  Added some lace around the first layer to give some added texture and peel offs around the edge.

The sad cards that have to be made.  Used my nesties to cut these out and then layered them up. It fits  an A5 or should I say C6 envelope, never get the size of envelopes right!  Was pleased with result anyway. xFeel free to comment if you can see a way to improve etc. xx

Proud Grandma

Not posted for a couple of days.  Been away with my daughter and Grandaughter who was competing in the Scottish Gymnastic Comp.  She got a Gold medal for her freestyle piece and a Gold medal for her Ball piece which made her the under 9's Scottish Champion, so she came away with a Trophy too.   What a lovely Mothers Day I had.  So proud of her.  Then came home to a lovely cooked dinner, done by my lovely husband and he had picked up my Mum and other daughter and youngest grandson
