More box cards!

Hello again, I don't seem to get a lot of time to craft these days since Bazzil my Cockatiel arrived!  He likes to be out of his cage a lot so you can only imagine the mess there would be if I took him in my craft room!!  I am sure he would love it though!!

For one of the card swap groups I am in, we have to make a box card this month.  I have been a bit worried about doing one as they looked complicated but must say I enjoyed making the first one so here are another two!  

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Love Jean xxx

My latest makes!

Hello again!  Just thought I would share a few of my latest makes with you.  I just don't seem to have much inspiration these days but really enjoyed making the gift bags and the box card.  I am usually not very good at following instructions, but the video for the bags was really good and so easy to make, I think I could be making quite a few for Christmas for my grandsons school Christmas Fete!  Filled with sweets I am sure they would sell well! 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, would love to hear your comments, good or bad! xxx

Hi there, it is far too long since I last posted anything on here, I really must do better!!
Here are a few of my latest makes.
This one is for my friend Barbara.  She came down for the weekend and heard the local Peacocks making their noise during the night, so thought she would like a reminder!!  The background I made using my Gelli Plate, just love playing around with paints and stencils to see what I end up with!

Here is another one using a Gelli Plate background!

For the men!

I have been busy doing a few cards for the Men this week!  Can never get the same inspiration as I can when doing a card for a female but did manage to get on a role once I started, hope you like them!

Just because!

Hello again.  Yesterday I received 3 new stamps from the Sue Wilson range which match the new dies she has recently launched.  I couldn't wait to have a play with them so here they are!

Happy Birthday!

I don't seem to be able to stop playing with these Dies, here is another card made today, this is from the Spanish collection by Sue Wilson - Seville and the bow is from the Finishing Touches collection.  Papers are by Teresa Collins.


Well I seem to be on a roll with my blog this week!

Today I have made a card for the February card challenge for the card swap group I belong to.
We usually just make a card to a particular theme set by Heather but this month for a change we are not swapping cards, just posting a photo and whoever Heather picks will win a lovely green pearl braclet which she has made.  The group is on Facebook and is a closed group called Crafty Card Swap, we are more than happy to have more members so would love to see you there!

Hello again!  Today I decided to do something outside my comfort zone, an altered frame!  I am not great at distressing, it never turns out how I would like it to but one of these days I may get it right!  This was just a cheap wooden frame from The Pound Shop so wasn't too worried if I messed it up.  I covered it with some Graphic 45 paper from their French Connection collection and inked the edges.  I used my Melt Pot and Martha Stewart moulds to make the flower and butterfly.  I think it needs something else on it but not sure, what do you think?

Thinking of You!

Hi there, today I was inspired by Sue Wilson's blog card so thought I would try my version of it, hope you like it!  i decided to use gilding flakes instead of just stamping it.

Good Friends!

Good afternoon everyone,  I had a bit of a rummage through my craft stash and came across these card blanks which I must have had for about 5 years so thought I would make a quick card using one of them along with the new Seville Die from Sue Wilson's new collection.  The card blanks are just the right size for this Die!

Hope everyone has survived the storms of last night, we had a fairly good day today but looks like the storms are coming back tomorrow!

Well I have been playing with my new dies again today, I really do love them, wish I could afford the whole set, I will have to make do with these for now though!

Special Friend!

Well I said I might be back and this is what I have made this time.  I love this shade of green, one of my favourite colours at the moment.  It is still raining and blowing a gale here and freezing cold.  Think I will gave to turn the heating up as I feel cold even with the heating on!  Hope you are all keeping safe and warm!  May be back later! xxx

You are the Best!

Well it is a horrible wet windy day here today, just the sort of day where I feel very lucky to be retired so I can stay indoors and craft!

Yesterday I received my new Sue Wilson Dies and couldn't wait to have a play with them.
I really love them especially the bow, no more searching for ribbon to match my cards and always a perfectly tied bow!  This is the first card I have made using the dies, I am off to play again so I could be back later with another card for you!


 Hi there, well I am going to try and give my blog a bit more attention from now on, I wonder how long my good intentions will last?? Lol 
Below are a selection of cards which I have made in the last week using the lovely Digi Stamps from Glamoureyes, hope you like them!

Well I can't believe it is nearly 6 months since I last added anything to my blog!!  Where has the time gone??

It has been quite a busy time for me, after 22 years of living in Cambridge I took the decision to move down to Wiltshire to be near my lovely daughter and her family.  Having to pack up a house on my own and get rid of all the rubbish you collect over the years was not easy!!  I have still brought too much stuff with me but it is so hard to part with your memories!  I moved in November and it wasn't until the week before Christmas before I had unpacked, although I still have a couple of boxes to look in.

My crafting has taken a back seat during all this time, I am just getting back into the swing of things although I must admit my mojo is not what it was!

Anyway enough of my rambling, here is a card I made tonight which I would like to enter in the challenge over at:
