Sweet Kitty Cross Stitch


Morning lovelies, hope you're all well.

One thing about lockdown is it inspired me to finish some of my works in
progress, not all of it, just some lol........and I say finished but I'm not really
 sure if it is or not......what do you think? Not sure whether to leave as is or
 to add some little flowers or maybe some sequins......thoughts please.
I did enjoy stitching this little sweetie & have an idea to stitch another
reversing the pattern so they'd be facing each other and with a blue bow.
Rightio, shopping day today so I'd better get a move on.....thanks for calling
and for any comments you might leave.......stay safe.

New Dies at Crafter's Companion!


There's a new launch over at Crafter's Companion today, the fabulous
INTERCHANGEABLE DIES! Each set comes with a frame die and three
interchangeable sentiments so the possibilities are endless. Catch them over on 
Crafter's TV and Create & Craft.....there's some fantastic deals to be had!

I kept my make pretty simple as I wanted to show the die off......some simple
matting & layering finished with some faux gems and that's it....all mounted onto
a 7x7 card blank.

Thanks for calling......stay safe!

Paper Frosting Friday!


Morning lovelies.....hope you're all well.
It's a lovely cool, damp day here on the Yorkshire Coast.....such a welcome relief
from the heat we've recently had.....on the flip side though it's so hard to
take a decent pic! Oh well, we can't have it all.
So today  have some paper frosting to share......all made from the beautiful
Paper Posies decoupage pad by Dovecraft. A really lovely collection, I made up
one from each of the pages, you actually get 3 pages of each......yes, 3! And there's
 extra bits on some of the pages too! I always like to have some paper frosting on 
standby.....it comes in so handy if you need  quick card but is also lovely for
journal, scrapbook pages and even home decor.
Rightio, off to get the jobs done.....and then hopefully a little craft time.
Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to........stay safe.

Hello 18!


Hi friends, hope you're all well.

I have a card topper for an 18th birthday to share today..............oh my, it seems such
 a long time ago since I was 18! Would I go back to that age? Not a chance lol.....would you?
Lots of scraps used in the making of this topper but still not much of a dent made
in the scrap box. Rightio.......off to have a couple hours in the craft room before tea.
Thanks for calling......have a lovely rest of the day!

Santa's Favourite!


Hello! Tea time already.......Tuesday sure did run away faster than I hoped!
I have another Christmas card to share, this one with a particular male in mind

All ingredients, except the paper string from Crafter's Companion......the sentiment
another in the fab Quirky Sentiments range.
Thanks for looking & for any comments you might leave.....I so appreciate them.

Make Your own Background with Crafty Cardmakers!


Hey lovelies, hope you're all well & rested after the weekend and looking
forward to the week ahead.
Over at Crafty Cardmakers we have just the thing to kickstart your crafty
 week........a new challenge and the theme as chosen by our Jackie is....

CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND

As usual any and all makes are welcome  & if you're low on inspiration then
look no further than the main blog.......we have a fabulously varied DT.

For my make I made the simplest of backgrounds......3 inks blended onto a
piece of white card. I then stamped over the top & finished with 4 mini gems.

Looking forward to seeing your makes!

Sweet Kitty

Hi friends, hope you're all well.
I have a little card to share today......was certain I'd already blogged it but up it
popped in my unblogged folder so here we are.
The sweet kitty topper  & paper came with Making Cards magazine....isn't he so
adorable? I kept it real simple adding a 'just because' sentiment so it can be used for
 any occasion.
Are you up to anything nice this aft? I'm going to prep tea then have a nice
lazy afternoon in the craft room then hopefully a little cross stitch later as well.
Thanks for calling......see you tomorrow.
