Don’t Let Life Dull Your Sparkle



I fell in love with this Spellbinders  Away We Go  die when I spotted it at the Alexandra Palace Craft show earlier this year.It cuts beautifully, I do often struggle with dies not cutting very well!  I enjoyed creating backgrounds with my aqua markers pens so much I made another one, but no swirls this time. I also added some fibres and dried flowers. 
I currently have some pretty Forget-Me -Not flowers in my flower press, yes I actually put them in the press and not between book pages ! They should be ready in the next few weeks, so I am looking forward to using them.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you are having time to enjoy your crafting xx

I would like to enter this into the Artistic Stamper Backgrounds Challenge.

Kindle your Spark of Madness


Hello, I hope all is well in your corner of the world. Thank you so much for visiting, and for the kind comments you leave me, they are truly appreciated xx

I always like to take part in the Country View Challenges  This month the theme is Be  Humourous - so I am a bit out of my comfort zone with this one ! 

This cheeky giraffe by Carabelle immediately came to mind, I have only ever used him in my art journal before so I thought it was time he came out and jumped onto a card! 

I experimented with my aqua markers to create a swirly background, I really enjoyed doing that as 
I was just playing and not trying too hard, and it came out okisssh  so I think I may make some more : )
I fussy cut the funny giraffe and used sticky pads to adhere him to the card. He is humorous in himself but I added the fab quote by Dina Wakley

As well as entering Country View Challenges I would like to enter Artistic Stamper Backgrounds. 

Have a lovely day.

Party Sheep




Hello how are you today? Sadly I have still not heard from the winner of the giveaway, I have posted on her blog and Facebook to no avail. If I have still not heard by Monday evening I will randomly select another winnner. I do hope that the winner Linda  is ok.

Today I have made a tag to tie around a gift for my sisters friends birthday. Oops I haven’t made the gift yet...... it is going to be a 3d picture in a frame. My sister and friends go on several holidays in the Lake District each year so I wanted to create  a country scene. The Crafty Individual Stamps are perfect for this.

As this is for a birthday the sheep of course had to be holding balloons! I used Watercolours for all of the colouring, and added texture with Flowersoft for the hedge and white Flowersoft for the sheep. I crushed up some Prima Art Stones to make the pathway. I finished the tag by tying on  several different shades of green raffia. 

Thank you so much for visiting today. Wishing you a happy, and hopefully sunny weekend xx 

I would like to enter Party Sheep into the following challenges.
