Peace, love and Joy.

This beautiful snowflake image downloaded ages ago nedded very little else. So I kept the card cas (clean and simple).
Just glittered the edges and added some bling. Cuttlebug swiss dots folder as background with a very simple sentiment. Now I know that snowflakes aren't exactly appropriate in our warm climate, but it was just so pretty that I couldn't resist.
I have a shocking headache this morning. Not feeling quite with it.....think I'll take a rest for an hour or so.

Sweet enough to eat

Hello there on this beautiful Spring day. What a stunning time of the year! Today's card is so sweet... I think it's good enough to eat...what with all the 'ice-cream'  colours. Such fun to make too. The scan is a bit blurry, but in real life this little beauty has glittered background paper. Sentiment was computer generated, also used Martha Stewart punch to make tree, to which I added the daintiest little buttons. Tree mounted on a Nestie circle. Talking about ice-cream.....mmmh that would go down very well!

Another Christmas card

What a stunningly glorious day! Spring has arrived. My garden is a delight with all the new life stating to show. Today another card with a festive flavour. Used Nesties for frame, Cuttlebug alphabet for sentiment, some flat-back pearls, a bit of lace and ribbon and voila!

Christmas crafting begins

Well for me its countdown to Christmas.....and my studio is full of everything that smacks of Christmas. So you won't get much else from me for the next months. I just love creating for brings out the child in me. Thought I'd start off with a festive card. Used the 'Lace Tree' Cuttlebug folder (with a lot of tweeking to make it fit!), some VERY old sheet music, a computer generated sentiment, some nesties, Martha Stewart punch for the greenery, and some Christmas flowers. As you know, I love anything with a vintage feel.....and I think this card turned out rather nicely. Lots more to follow over the days and keep visiting.

Thursday threesome

Not such a great day for me today. Tweaked my back stretching for something.....leaving me pretty immobile. Frustrating, because I have SO much to do! But I've found if I just sit relatively still it is not too bad, so here goes........
Three cards today, using the same range of papers, but very different layouts. Hope you like them.

Sunday Scraps

I always try and clear my desk on a Sunday, so that I can start the new week with a clean space. Masde this card in under 10 minutes, using a scrap of 7 Gypseys paper a couple of stamps that were lying around and a scrap of ribbon. Thank You cards are always so useful.....always have something to be grateful for. I have a friend who laughs at me for saving all my tiny paper scraps ( and hers!). But look what you can do with those small pieces.
Have a great Sunday. The sun is actually shining on the East Coast!

It's COLD....Brrrrrr....but think on SPRING!

Yes, okay, I know it is freezing...and dark...and WET! AGAIN! And I know we are in the depths of winter. Iwas so cold this morning that I decided to make a card which would take my thoughts to Spring, and the beautiful, fresh, sunny, flowery days to come. Doesn't it just make your heart sing?

The paper used  was an oldie from FABSCRAPS from the Sweet Shop range. Embellishments came from my stash.

I don't usually make tall cards like this one, but at times the design just calls for a long card. I rather like it!
