Spellbinders trefoil accents
a sissix snowflakes embossing folder
a snowflake punch
plain white   and blue glitter card.

xmas card 3

Not exactly breaking any records but getting back into cardmaking again - just realised how much to do before christmas! Thanks to all who have left comments - they are much appreciated.

I have used:
  • sissix snowflake embossing folder on acetate
  • white organza ribbon
  • nestie
  • embellishment from an old kit

xmas card 2

Well now I've started xmas cards thought I'd bash on - this is the only one that hasn't got wet glossy accents!
I've decided to start using up some of the bargains I have bought previously that have sat in boxes and bags. I got these bubbles from a sale about 15 months ago so definately time they found a purpose.. Also used a cuttlebug swiss dots folder as it is so versatile and one of the accent sets by spellbinders as I watched Sue Wislon the other week and she makes them look so effective. Plus one of my unknown no of ribbons as I so love ribbons I can never reisit them!!

New LiM entry - Week 43 - A bit of bling

Here is my entry for the LiM challenge this week
I have used:
  • a free stamp from Craftystamper    
  • memento ink
  • promarkers to colour in the image
  • layerd on to a punch out from a Martha Stewart punch
  • tied on with ribbon and a peel off greeting on the ribbon
  • added bling to the foliage
I have used peels offs as I have so many that I have gathered over time that I really need to use some of them up! I aee them and think they will come in handy and then they just join the existing pile as I never remember what I have!

updated my profile

hi all I have become a fan of QR codes as am looking at their use for my day job - so thought I'd have one for my blog.

5 mins of fame again

Hi bloggers
Here are some accessories that I put on the WAF on and they were shown and my email read out again during the programme - it is quite exciting especially when the presenter Fee said how much she liked the bobby pins. I am enjoying it while it lasts. The other items are a mobile phone charm and a bag charm using some odd gemstones I had left..

I was meant to put up my sons birthday card but forgot about it til I had stuck the envelope with heavy duty tape as it is going to Spain!!
