Happy Birthday Iris Rae~

Hello Girls~
Hope you are all well, thank you so much for the lovely comments you leave for me, much appreciated.

I have a card to show you today. I have made this for my Great Niece, Iris Rae, she will be 2 at the end of April, she is a real cutie so I hope she will like this sweet little fairy on the card (if she doesn't then her Mum Leah will love it....LOL)

This is a photo of Iris, taken just last weekend. She loves my Pot Pig called "Delores" and always asks to see her when she calls, mind you she knows she's not allowed to play with her, just to look at her!! This is her doing her best, I am just looking and not touching act!!
(She does however always give her a kiss right on the flat end of Delores's snout!!)

And the Card:

The image is a New Stamp I bought a few weeks ago at Port Sunlight. It is by Sherri Baldy called My-Besties, cute eh?
The papers are MME, the little Kite is a die from Memory Box, the Alphabet Stamps are a new set from Inky Doodles called "Stitched Alphabet". the image is coloured with Pro-Markers.

Chicken Girl~

Hi Girls~

Dreadful rainy weather here today, so after all my jobs this morning and into the afternoon, I have finally had a wee play.

I bought this Stampotique Wooden Stamp a couple of weeks ago from Art From the Heart shop, (they have a great Stampotique collection, you can find them here).
This stamp is called "Chicken" which did make me laugh, and I just love her. As with all stampotique Stamps she is a bit scarey, but I like her little swing dress which I have PP.

I started with a Prima Doll Tag which I chopped a bit smaller and covered in papers which were free in a Scrapbook Magazine. I have also used ink through a couple of Mask/Stencils in the background, the lace effect in Aqua is a Tim Holt's mask and the one I have done in red ink is a Sunburst by Crafters Workshop (love this one).
I have used several different bits of Washi Tape including the "Love" which I think looks a bit like a rub on!
The little bird is a rubber stamp too but no idea who's make as it's in a plain packet.
"Chicken" is coloured with Pro-Markers.

No Way...An "Easter" card!!

Hi there~

I cannot believe I am showing you an "Easter Card".......It can't be that time of year yet...can it?

Well that's the theme this week at "Sweet Stampin'" anyway, so here is my interpretation. I don't make any Easter cards for myself, but am always happy to do a commission for one if asked.
Our Sponsors this week are "Crafty Devils".

This card is a bit of a "Craftwork Cards" fest.....This nice shaped easel card is one of theirs, I don't often use this shaped card but wanted to use something different for the image of "Warren" the rabbit (also by Craftwrok Cards) and lastly these adorable papers are also from one of their new Block Pads.
The flowers are cut from a Die-Namic's die, and the Sentiment is a LOTV set which I love. All finished off with some Aurora Borealis gems from Mei Flowers.

Relax and Enjoy

Hello Girls

Thank you for all the lovely comments you have been leaving me, I really do appreciate all of them.

I have had a busy day today and not had any chance to Craft 'till tonight. I had Zumba early this morning, then I had some sewing jobs to do (which took me a little longer than expected) then I finished my Commission for 89 Wedding Table Name Setting. These have been a real joy to do, and I finished them quite quickly once I had an example made.

So onto tonight's project.

It is another card for one of my Daughter's Work Friend's. A retirement card.
I went straight for this LOTV Art Pad Topper for this card, just love this one, the boy in his cap on his old fashioned deck chair, with dog and book at his feet....I think is just perfect.
The papers are MME, and the Sentiment is also LOTV. The little stick on button is K & co and the sweet little banner is Memory Box.

No Place Like Home~

Hello Ladies~

Hope I find you all well.
I am excited as I am off to Port Sunlight for some Retail Therapy this Saturday. I am lacking a bit in funds (Harrogate Show two weeks ago, I did spend a bit too much!!) but I love this show as there are lots of Demo's going on and it's nice just to be amongst other crafters. There are about 8 of us going together, so I predict FUN!

I have a House Warming card to show you today. I have made this for one of my Daughter's friend's.

I have used one of the images from a LOTV Art Pad I think this little door is so cute and just right for a house warming card.
The papers are from a Prima Pad, the little lazer cut bike is from my stash as are the flowers. The tiny flowers are by Anna Marie Designs and the bigger rose is Hobby House.

I would like to entering this card into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday--Floral

Crafts for Eternity--Anything Goes

Mother's Day this Weekend~

Hello Girlies~

Angie and I had a very successful "Early Easter/Spring Fair" yesterday. The turn out of people buying could have been better (as it was a nice day, maybe people went further afield ) but those that did come seemed to be spending, and I am pleased to say, they seemed to like our items. That's good news for us, make's all the hard work worth it....and it's more dosh to spend this weekend at the brilliant "Happy Stamper Show" at Port Sunlight Liverpool.
Unfortunately if you would like to go to PS at the weekend it is a ticket only show, no payment on the door, they usually sell out of tickets pretty early too, but you could always check out "Happy Stamper Show" and see if there are any tickets left, it's a great show and I have a list building already!!

I have a couple of Mother's Day things to show you today. I made these for yesterday's Fair.
I have not made my MiL or Mum any of these, I have other nice goodies for them.

I have wanted to make little T Light boxes for a while now and I found a great tutorial on the web from a lovely lady who is a Stampin' Up member, it's a great tutorial and you can find it here.

I have used Anna Marie Design dotty cardstock, her card is lovely and comes in lots of different colours, she does stripy card too!  The little tag is one of my Die Namic dies sets (love these, there are four tags in all and this one is the smallest), the ribbon is from my stash. These boxes look really small, yet they hold 12 small (Asda's own) tea lights.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!
