Sweat pea stamps

I made these pages for Janet in USA, they are for her deco, her theme is fantasy and I know she likes sweet pea stamps so new i would be safe using them. Anyhow am pleased to say she did like them so I am happy if she is happy. I am getting really addicted to these Little beauty's. I love making deco's they are so lovely to keep.

Just a quicky

I made this yesterday and of coarse was trying different bits and bobs, added some little rabbits as if they are looking over the fence. Have a mixture of images on here as there are Sugar Nellie, sweat pea stamps and the rabbits Barbara Greys, think they look ok together

Post it not holder and blog hop

This was for a fun swap I run on KC, I send out an item and you have to make some thing with it. Well I made this flower, did not want to do just a card so made a post it note, the post it note is under the piece at the front with the S on. The original item was a absorbent piece of lint. I split it first of all so I had 2 pieces, then I sprayed it with cosmic shimmers and H2O's, when it dried I stamped on it with Stazon. Then cut it out with the new Tim die of shabby flowers, had to do a bit of sewing to gather it up, was surprised I managed to make it without ruining it as that would of been tragic as had no spares.
I am chuffed to bits too as I have won a prize off Sweat pea stamps on the blog hop, couldn't believe it

Little Dragon

This is my first attempt at an easel card, must admit wasn't as hard as i thought. I am terrible for doing something for the first time, get myself all chewed up. Daft isn't it as there is only me seeing it, so if it is an abortion no one will know.
Anyhow don't think it is too bad for a first go

Another one

I know you must be fed up of me uploading these cards but this is for my youngest Daughter, who is 29 on Thursday. A Disney nut especially Tinkerbell so cheated with this as there is no stamping except the verse on the back. Well I have no Tinkerbell stamps and I love these Micky mouse stickers, they don't look like stickers. Anyway why I wanted to show you is, ages ago I bought some kids hair slides that a shop was selling off to use as bellies, I did use one or too but they where bulky but they have made a great alternative for brads down the side of this card don't you think. New I would find a use for them eventually

ATC for my SOTH

Darlene loves frogs so I could not resist making her this ATC, love this image as you could put loads of different sayings with it. I can upload it as have just heard she has finally received it


These are the pages I did for Nora's deco, as you can guess her theme is angels, I am so pleased she liked them as always worry when making for some one.
I have a few things to upload but can't till the people I have sent them too receives them as I don't want to spoil there surprise. I think my parcel to my SOTH is walking to Canada, just hope it gets there as will be so upset if it doesn't

Elly's birthday

No pictures tonight folks. just want to say PHEW Elly loved her cards, she said the one I made for her Dad was the best card she got, so I am really relieved as was worried it would be too loud. If you know what I mean. When I was making it I wasn't happy as I thought it was too busy ( that is what I say when the background has a lot going on) I like things less bright on a background but had to keep telling myself she is a teenager. Blimey she is 16 today, she is the eldesed grandchild, where do the years go

This is my take for grunge, most likely not quite right but who cares, it is how I see it and everyone has there own idea's I did forget to distress the edges. Trust me, they were for a swap and there was some great variations done, all great

Children ATC's

These are for one of my groups I am in. You don't have to stamp so I thought I would do 3 generations of family, the boy ( yes boy) with his sister is my Dad, they dressed them in dresses in those days. The middle one is me, and the girl on a fish is my youngest Daughter Kim, she isn't really on a fish, just me messing around. Anyhow thought they would be different makes a change

Dry emboss challenge

This is one I made for a dry emboss challenge, I used one of my new Asian cuttle bug embossing plates then sanded over it slightly to enhance the pattern. I also used 2 of the new distressed ink colours. I really like these. The butterfly is a new woodware punch I got and the flower is a Marta Stewart Punch
