Please accept my apologies for being late on posting, l blame the weather...haha.
These two card were made from the Tilly Daydream Ultimate pack that l purchased recently
from my Craft Shop, and after finding the "Spinner" cards in my stash l thought l would make
a couple up from the decoupage section. They are self explanatory really as l layered toning
backing papers on the main card and then put the decoupage onto the spinner part. Very quick
two 6 x 6m cards, but quite effective don't you think?
Many thanks for visiting my blog and if you have any comments they would be welcome.

My card for today is a 6 x 6 white square base card, for the pink matt, l used my Gold Shine sparkle medium from Imagination Crafts, and used one of my masks to apply it, and chose the
one with sprays of leaves. The topper was cut from one of my Spellbinders, and l inked through
whilst it was still in the die using Faded Lipstick distressed ink to give a hint of colour. The
flowers and leaves were made from my newly bought paper clay, they were also coloured with
the same ink. A card suitable for any occasion l think.
Hope you like my card and would be happy for any comments, and thank you for visiting my blog.

Thought l would post this morning for a change so here we go here's my card for today.
This is a change, its a 6 x 6 cream card and the main matt is some paper out of my stash
that was appropriate for this design. As it has small dots l co-ordinated with putting it
through my Calibur using a larger dotty folder, then lightly tinted it with Faded Lipstick
distressed ink to bring out the dots. I then, using my nesties cut out the darker pink, that
is some mulberry paper, then a larger matt in cream. the main image is a recently bought
die of Marianne collectables that includes the stamp for the "baby", think it is so cute. I
finished off by die-cutting a couple of corners also inked on edges.
Thank you for visiting my blog and hope you like what l have done, any comments are

Hope you aren't all sizzled with the weather, but it is nice to be able to enjoy the garden, thus l am
a little late on keeping up with my posts.
For this card l chose a black landscape style, and delved into my stash and found these dotty papers
that match, these were matt and layered with each other to form the base, and l offset them. The shape was yet again in my stash, and the flowers had been floating about on my desk after l had been playing with the new Tattered Lace set, both the floral and the sentiments, so l made the arrangement for the left corner and added the sentiment in the top right. Finished off cutting a swirl
out of some of the off-cuts. This was a pleasant change to work just in black and white.
Hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog and if you have any comments they would be greatly

Hope you are all having good weather, its been very muggy here today, but looking forward to
the sunshine they've given out for the next few days.
My card for today is once again another commission, am doing quite well for these just lately,
this one is for my friend that is on the checkout at Asda, and she asked for Peppa Pig theme as
its for her Great Grand-daughter who is two.
I chose a 8 x 8 scalloped white card for the base, and for the images l Googled and took them
into my Digital Designer programme, made the backing paper and traced out to follow the scallops.
The no: 2 and "Birthday Blessings" l cut with my Cricut machine, and shadowed with pink glitter
card. Attached the two pics of Peppa Pig, and card completed.
Thank you for visiting my blog and hope you return....any comments are welcome.

Hope you are all well, busy crafting hopefully.
My card today is an A5 portrait dark beige pearlescent base card and the main matt is of a lighter shade, trimmed with a wavy edge. The main image is a KanBan stamp and l stamped with my distressed inks and lightly coloured with a hint, then l cut out using my Spellbinders and also cut a larger size in the same colour as the main card. The rosette was made by punching out a border and scored using my Hougie board, joined up and made the rosette and topped with a text topper. This was made for a 65th birthday commission, it also was submitted as a sample for the "Craftateers" blog...."Two Colours" Hope you go to visit this blog as there are many lovely designs to look at.
