Best Wishes

Good morning all. Hope you are having a good day?

We start a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart today.

Our challenge is Just for Fun and the theme is the usual

Always Anything Goes.

My project has been made for a very special person but she will not have received it yet so I cannot say her name, just hope she likes it.

The dies I have used are sue wilsons noble dies for the frame.  The sentiment is a freebie die from the Tattered Lace magazine which I just thought would be such a useful die hence buying the magazine.

I have also used some backing paper from the same magazine.  The leaves are also a tattered lace die and the flowers have been stamped onto parchment and embossed using white detail embossing powder but I cannot remember which flower stamp I have used sorry.  I then finished off with tonic nuvo pearl drops which I just love.

To see more projects from our design team follow the link HERE to the blog and to enter your own project just don't forget to link your blog page to the challenge.

Thanks for visiting today and take care.

Good morning. Well I had a brilliant birthday last weekend, started  last Thursday with a meal out with my friend and ended Wednesday on a birthday bash with my slimming world chums.

Today I start to take advantage of my new 'oapie' status with an eye test, a free one.  Yippee, only free thing I have ever had so clearly there is some good points to reaching the big 60.  

We also start a lovely new challenge at Crafty Girlz today.

Our theme is

Anything Goes or an option theme of Back to School 

I have used a digi kit in craft artist called 'Certificates' so it is sort of 'back to school' but could also be for graduation too.

Why not pop over to our blog to enter your own project and to see what the rest of our design team have posted.

Thank you for visiting today.

See you soon.

Good morning all.  How are you all? 

Today sees a new challenge beginning at Crafting from the Heart.

Our challenge is sponsored by 

The digi stamp I chose to use from our sponsor is called 'Memories'

I do like Ppinky Dolls digis because can be used coloured or uncoloured.

I chose to keep mine uncoloured for this challenge and have made it up as a sympathy card, a subject that is needed but often hard to make.

I have dies from Sue Wilson Noble collection - the rectangles and ovals.  Also an embossing folder from Sue Wilson.

The sentiment is from Phill Martin, the flowers are stamped and embossed onto vellum and are from Dreamees and the 'leaves' are Marianne dies.

To enter your own project into our challenge follow the link HERE.  Also we have a facebook  page where you can showcase your makes.

Thank you for visiting, hope to see you again soon.

Snow Lady in Autumn

My 2nd post of the day is to launch a new challenge at Get Creative Challenge

Challenge 62 has a theme of

Our sponsors for this challenge are

My post for today is using a digi stamp from Fred She Said Designs.

I have a confession to make, when I chose this digi, called 'Snow Lady Light Up Your Holidays' I had in mind to start my christmas cards - silly me never reminded myself of the theme for this challenge.

You can image when I was sent my digi, I thought, 'Oh Lord have I messed up, then I remembered a conversation with someone years ago, her small daughter had a birthday in November but absolutely adored snowmen, this was before Disney's film with Oleg.

So I thought, follow the autumn colours and make a birthday card for someone who just loves snowmen.  Hopefully you like my finished sample and don't think it too wacky - LOL.

I did print out my image in craftartist and added some autumnal leaves before printing.  I have coloured it in using my copics and also printed a backing paper from the same digi kit.

The dies I have used are from Sue Wilson noble collection - you will gathered by now I use these collections loads.  The flowers were die cut using dies from Tattered Lace and I finished off with leaf dies from Sue Wilson.  Given I also am a big face of nuvo drops I have added those too.

To enter your own project into our challenge follow the ling HERE but don't forget to follow the theme.

That's me for today  Thanks for visiting again.

See you soon and do take care.
