Hello 2018!

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well & warm and not struggling too much weather wise. We had snow over the weekend so guess what I'm doing today? You guessed.....snuggling down in my craft room! Before I waffle on anymore I'd like to wish you all a (very belated) wonderful happy, healthy & craft filled New Year! I hope 2018 is everything you want it to be! Ok, I know I'm late but at least we're still in January lol! Have you made (and broken) any New Year resolutions? None for me, I'm just gonna take each day as it comes, craft when I can, blog more & try and challenge myself more craft wise........and maybe have a much tidier craft desk!
So for today I have a card topper to share........a great way of using up those snippets we all have lying around.......and a topper is much easier to store too then when needed I can just mount it onto a card blank & that's it......job done! I used simple matting & layering of black card and silver mirri then finished with some die cut pieces........simple!
Rightio, got some jobs to do.........then it's playtime! Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to I hope your day's a good one! xx

If you go out when it's snowing......

.........and look up at the'll feel lots of icy kisses the snowflakes flutter by!

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well & warm, it's bitterly cold & wet here
this morning but no snow......yet.......I think the warmest place to be might just
be my craft room......any excuse lol!
Today's card is another Hunkydory image......isn't it sweet? And I love the verse too.
Simple matting & layering again and I assembled some die cut poinsettias.........added
a couple extra bits & pieces & that's it.........another card done!
Loving these quick & easy makes.....they definitely scratch my crafty itch since I
can't sit & craft as I used to and as the image came from a sheet there's lots of
bits & pieces left over to make something else with!
Thanks for poppy by......have a lovely day, see you tomorrow!

Seasons Greetings!

Morning my crafty friends........hope you're all well!
Oooh, it's a cold morning, I think the craft room might just be my room of choice today!
A quick & easy card for today made using Hunkydory mirri, die & topper matted & layered 
onto a black card front. I used a banner die to add the peel off sentiment.....yes, peel off..... you remember them lol? Haven't used them for ages but found a box full and well, it would be rude not too.......and to be honest they're perfect for the banner dies! A few gems 
to finish & that's it.......super quick & easy so a great make for those last minute cards!
Thanks for popping by & whatever you're up to......have a lovely day!

Vintage Santa

Hi friends......hope you're all well & warm!
The weather seems to have taken a turn for the worse with storm warnings going out
across parts of the country........stay safe everyone.
Another card topper to share today, I LOVE the silver & white combo.....and I used
up so many snippets too! Not sure where the stamp came from but I simply stamped it in
 black & added a sprinkle of glitter, matted onto some Hunkydory mirri (love it!) & edged with a Hunkydory die cut frame. The poinsettias were cut from white & solver mirri and finished with a pearl and lastly I added a die cut sentiment edged with a silver bow.
A bit more Christmas shopping is the plan for today........thanks for calling & whatever you're 
up to have a lovely day............see you soon!

Merry Creepmas!

Morning lovelies......hope you're all well & warm!
Ooh not long now........the days are growing ever shorter, the list of things to do is getting
longer..........and it's oh, so very cold! As always though, I'm sure we'll get it all done.......and if
we don't I'm sure we'll still have a fabulous Christmas anyway!
So for today I have a  creepy card to share......this was from a set of 4 I made......all the same 
size & design, just a different image on each. Probably the simplest card to make I printed an image from a cd called I'm Screaming of a White Christmas by Jem's Designs. I layered
 onto silver mirri then mounted onto a black card blank & finished with a die cut snowflake
 and a gem.I love the versatility of these cd's.......will definitely be going back for more!
 There's some gorgeous ones to choose from, they're not all gothic & creepy....there's steampunk, vintage, flowers, romance, fantasy...........too many to mention! for some breakfast then maybe a crafty play.....thanks for calling!

And another Christmas card!

Morning crafty friends.......hope you're all well this cold & frosty morning!
There's a real Christmas feel in the air around here, I think because last year was so rotten
healthwise we're making an extra effort this year........ooh, it's exciting, I feel like a big kid lol!
So as the title says I have another Christmas card to share today.....this one made with a Hunkydory topper, a piece of paper from my scrap box & some die cut elements. Some simple matting & layering, I distressed the edges of the paper & added the bits & pieces.......done!
It amazes me each time I make something without using my Copics or paint & ink......
clean crafting I call it lol.
Rightio, that's my lot for today, thanks for callling......see you soon!
