Spring Birthday

Not bad eh, I have actually made another card and I'm hoping to get a bit of time over the weekend to have a play, after I have washed and groomed the dog that is but I think I am finally getting my mojo back, I hope so as I have so many birthdays this month and they are all boys, yikes!!. 

The gorgeous papers are from Nitwits, I think it is the Val'n'tine one and the image is a SWALK one from Crafters Companion (I love these images, they are so cute).  The lovely diecut is a Marianne Die (my favourite) and the flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes
Patti's Creations - Anything Goes
Marianne's Design Divas - Spring into Spring
Crafters Companion - Spring

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

My Latest Craze - Jewellery Making

I thought I would show you some ChainMaille jewellery that I have been making recently.  I saw this technique a while back using jump rings and must admit to being slightly hooked , it has also got me itching to do a bit more jewellery making as I found it was quite therapeutic when I had lost my mojo for cardmaking.  At least now I will have something else to do when I am lost for inspiration when making cards.

Sorry about the rubbishy photos , yes that is another thing on my evergrowing list of things I "NEED" a decent camera lol.

Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.

Mother's Day

Hi all,

well I realise it has been a long time since I have been on here but with everything going on in my life over the last year something had to give and that was blogging.  I have though been busy with personal requests but found it a struggle to get the inspiration or inclanation to just craft for fun.  Well I am pleased to say that I have started to get itchy feet again and have made an Easel card for my Mum for Mother's Day (I can't believe I have actually bought cards recently as I couldn't be bothered to make them lol) using some fabulous free papers that I found over at Lena Scraps.  Aren't they just gorgeous, the beautiful bow was also a freebie.

Papers - Lena Scraps Freebie
Die Cuts - Spellbinders & Magnolia
Sentiments - Pink Petticoat "Lovely Mum Sentiments"
Embellishments - Wild Orchid Crafts

I am going to enter this into the following challenges.

Delightful Sketches - Someone Special
Little Miss Muffett - Easel, Shaped or Step cards

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
