Hello baby!

Hi friends......hope you're all well.
'Tis a dull, dismal morning here on the Yorkshire Coast......perfect weather for cosying up in the craft room, I think! Who's with me? Once I've got the jobs done, tea in the slow cooker, a clear desk & a nice hot mug of coffee......I'll be raring to go lol!
Today I have a couple of new baby makes to share.....perfect as card toppers, to be added to a scrapbook page .......or maybe even an album cover? As usual, when making my own I got carried away and as I had a few bits left it would have been rude not to make a couple extra!
I used only die cuts, one topper sheet, a couple of stamps & a couple of gems and I love how they came together so easily.

Wednesday, 14 March 2018 make my gears spin!

Hi friends......happy Wednesday!
Don't know where the days are going but they sure are flying past!
Today's card has been sat in my unblogged folder for a while........we can't be having that lol so today's the day to share! Lots of snippets of silver mirri card were used on this one, just one piece of A4 black card (and I had some left from that!) and a snippet of patterned paper from my scrap box!
A couple of dies, I distressed some edges & a computer generated sentiment and that's
it......job done! I thought to add some gems but as it's intended for a male I thought maybe not......I'll save them for the girly cards!
Thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave......see you soon!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi crafty friends......hope you're all well, warm & having a lovely weekend!
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mum's out there........wishing you all a lovely day!
For today I have a card for a Mum.....made for Mother's Day but would work for maybe a fact I think it would suit any occasion. I chose cream, kraft & peach tones.....definitely one of my favourite colour combo's and I've taken a bit of a liking to hammer card too lol. Lots of distresssed edge layers, die cuts, mulberry flowers and faux pearls........and that's it......job done.
Thanks for calling, have a lovely day......see you soon!

Rudolph Days February 2018's a bit chilly here today..........and we have snow! 
Sons College is closed as is Daughter's school so they're having a cheeky lie in........and once jobs are done I'm gonna have a crafty play!
I wanted to join in with Mo's Rudolph Days challenge again this month......had a bit of a panic on when I remembered it's a short month so had to get my thinking cap on!
I made the simplest of cards......a 6x6 card blank, a piece of coloured cardstock (I used adorable scorable) and a die cut snowflake panel. I layered them all up, stamped a greeting on a banner die cut then added a few gems......job done........and I love how the coloured card can be any colour, you could even make the card to match the recipients decor!!
Thanks for popping in......stay safe & warm.

Good Friends

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well.
Today I have a card topper to share....... simply layered it into a black die cut frame  that would have been enough to make a stunning card with a beautiful verse but I just wanted to show how you can add other bits & bobs to a premade this case a flower arrangement & a die cut flourish!
So there we go.......quick & easy and, I think, quite beautiful.

To the best Mum!

Hi friends, hope you're all well!
Thanks so much for all the lovely, encouraging comments you've been leaving me, I'm really enjoying going through my crafty stash.......even if it is only for a little time as & when I can.
Today I have a card for a Mum, I love the colour combo on this one although I'm really not a pink girl lol......I do love me some black though! Again, lots of snippets used here, all the same paper pad too which means I can enter the first challenge over at Creative Crafting World as the paper is from their Raspberry Ripple stack & the black card is Lynda's famous (and fabulous) black card!
Lots of die cut embellishments, some paper roses, gems & a stamped sentiment & that's it......once I decided on a layout it came together fairly quickly.
Thanks for calling......see you soon!
