Colours of Autumn

Morning crafty friends......hope you're all well?
'Tis a gorgeous morning here, the sun is shining & the skies are blue......but there's a definite nip in the air! I love this time of the year when you can feel the changing of the seasons...... Autumn & Winter are my favourites so I just had to make a card to celebrate! Again, the simplest of cards using up some scraps, I wanted to keep it simple to show off the stunning image........wouldn't you just love to be walking through those trees.......I can almost feel & hear those leaves crunching underfoot!
Rightio, that's me for to do then hopefully a crafty afternoon.......and Strictly on the tv tonight........looking forward to seeing this year's line up!
Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to......have a lovely day!

Simply Snowflakes

Morning friends......hope you're all well.
Another stash busting card to share today........not much stash busted I'll admit but every little helps lol! This time I used just one piece of card, a snowflake die, a sentiment stamp & some blue gems. It looks so much softer & prettier in real life but the light isn't showing it off to it's best today. I started with a 6x6 card blank & layered a piece of white card on top,
Then I simply die cut the snowflakes, placed them in a circle & filled each one with a gem. The sentiment was stamped last & luckily it worked out ok but in hindsight I should have probably stamped the sentiment first!
That's it for today, thanks for looking.......have a lovely day!

Using up some bits!

Morning crafty friends, hope you're all well!
Today I have a quick & easy card to share......and it's just perfect for using up all
those scraps/oddments of paper! I started with the small piece of paper that's been hanging around in my scrap box for ages! I layered it onto black card then onto a 6x6 card blank. A die cut car pieced together with red & black card snippets & finished with a 'you did it' sentiment........and that's it......a great way to use up your snippets of card and the pieces of paper we all have that aren't quite big enough to do much else with!
Thanks for calling today....hopefully I'll see you tomorrow......I'm on a mission to use up
some stash so have lots to share!

Hello........I'm back!!

Hello my crafty friends, it's been a long time.......I hope you're all well!

 I really need to start this post with an apology........I'm so sorry to anyone I've let down over the past year or so........I do hope you can forgive me?
Maybe you're wondering where I've been? Well, the simple answer is nowhere......literally nowhere......I haven't left the house in over a year! I wont go into too much detail......suffice to say I've had the year from hell healthwise but......dare I say it out loud......things are finally starting to improve. And the icing on the cake? In 8 weeks my 1st grandson is due.......and I'm so, so excited!
So craftwise things have had to change......I'm no longer able to colour & craft as I used to so you might notice my crafting style has changed dramatically......but so long as I can still craft who cares lol!
I have to focus on the positive & concentrate on the things I can do......and I sure do have a long list of things I want to try!
So how are you all? Well, I hope........I've so missed popping round your blogs & haven't a hope of catching up but will definitely be calling sometime soon!
I do have a card to share, a kit card & something I've not really done much of but I have to say they're great.......and they definitely scratch my crafty itch lol! This is my 1st Christmas card of 2017 so I'm much later than normal but considering I didn't make one card last Christmas I'm feeling pretty much ahead of myself!
Rightio, that's enough waffling from me.......if you're still reading this then thanks very much for sticking with me.......I'll be back soon but for now I'm off to see if I can remember how to enter a competition......or two!
Thanks for calling......see you soon!

Punches and/or Dies with Crafty Calendar!

                                                           Hi crafty friends, hope you're all well & have something nice planned for the weekend! Can you believe it's July 2nd already......and we're now closer to next Christmas than we are to last lol!!
So the 1st Saturday of any month means only one thing......a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar! This time the theme is a nice, easy one for you...... PUNCHES and/or DIES!

We're lucky enough to have the fabulous All Dressed Up sponsor us this month & they very kindly gave us some images to play with. I chose Smile, It's Your Birthday......she reminds me so much of my own little Miss who can often be found with a camera in her hands! I coloured her with Copics, used papers that were freebies with a mag, I added a filmstrip die cut, a die cut butterfly & leaves then finished with some hand dyed seam binding, lots of flowers & a few gems.

Rightio my friends, that's my lot for today......thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave. Whatever you're up to have a lovely weekend!
