You make me Smile

Hi friends.....hope you're all well & having a lovely weekend!
Did you enjoy the rain, wind & thunder? Oh my, it was fabulous.....still quite warm 
but it's been lovely sat watching the rainfall & the lightening through the patio doors.
I have a Dr appointment today so I hope it's not as bad as it has been, never happy am I lol!
Anyway, another card topper to share today, could have sworn I posted this a while ago 
but can't find it anywhere. I started, as may of my cards do, with a black base.....
.....added a distressed paper layer then added some die cuts & some handmade paper
 flowers finished with a faux pearl centre.
As I was typing this I was thinking this might look quite nice in a picture frame as
a piece of home decor......what do you think?
Rightio, better get a move on, thanks for calling......see you soon!

70th Birthday

Hi crafty friends......hope you're all well.
A quick & easy card to share today.......and super flat for posting too which
is always a bonus! Measuring 5x5 inches, I started with a card blank & simply
added some stars that were die cut & layered in silver mirri, navy card & patterned
paper.......then numbers were die cut from silver mirri then I finished with a
stamped happy birthday!
Rightio, short & sweet today.......gonna try for a crafty play later once the jobs are done.
Thanks for calling & whatever you're up to.....hope your days' a good one!

A little bit shabby, a little bit chic!

Hi crafty friends......hope you're all well & not struggling too much in this heat!
Don't know about you but I'm hoping the forecast of rain on Friday is right......I'm about
melting here & would love some rain, especially if I'm in my craft room!
I have another card topper to share today, ready for any occasion with a simple
sentiment.....lots of paper flowers & die cut embellishments......I really enjoyed making
this one but needless to say I started out with something completely different in mind!
It all started with the wood effect paper....I distressed the edges then simply added all the 
bits & pieces........and job done!
Thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave.....I so appreciate it!
See you soon!

some die cut letters, a couple of banners & finished with those luscious lips!
Rightio, better go do some jobs if I want a crafty play later on.....thanks

New challenge at Crafty Cardmakers!

Hi crafty friends......hope you're all well!
So sorry I've not been around for a while, real life has an awful habit of getting
in the way of crafty time at the moment lol.......and with this awful sunshine we're
having I don't seem to be able to do much of anything......roll on Autumn & Winter!
So today I have a Dt make for the new challenge starting over at
where the theme is to use at least 2 dies/punches or 1 of each.
A nice easy theme as I know you all love your dies & punches! As usual, any & all
makes are welcome & you can find all rules & some fabulous Dt makes for your
inspiration over on the main blog.
I used silver mirri card, pink adorable scorable card & an assortment of dies &
punches for my make.....the unicorn looks so much nicer in real life, the silver mirri
is so pretty. I finished with a trio of punched flowers with a faux pearl centre.
Thanks for popping by, I'll be round real soon.....take care.
