Hi Crafters,

Thank you for visiting today, my blog has been rather neglected and posts have been sparse of late but today I am here to share my DT card for Passion For Promarkers.
This week our challenge is to...


I've managed to use lace and ribbon in my design but you can use just one if you like.

I've coloured an image that I had in my collection from our sponsor, Di's Digi Stamps, with my markers and added a little glitter to the icing on the cake - this is pink in real life but the light from the camera is turning it lilac.

Hi Crafters,

I recently won a blog candy from Pauline, check out her blog, she makes some fabulous projects. It was a magazine with dies and stamps attached and I couldn't wait to get started.
Here are the post-it note holders that I made and a card.

The die cuts the outline and a filigree centre, it's very pretty and versatile. Then there's the matching stamp too and some useful sentiments.

I love this wavy sentiment stamp, I can see me using this one a lot.


Well this post is rather late in the day, I've been busy getting some orders finished, poor hubby hasn't seen me all evening :o/ Now I'm done in and ready for bed so I'll toddle off now and see you soon.

It's a bright, Sunny morning here in Norfolk, a promise of what's to come.
An hour later
(well that was short lived....the promise of what was to come was...RAIN!)

Our Zoe has chosen a theme of 


This made me scratch my head a little but eventually I came up with a card that was somewhat quirky for Christmas.

Although it still has a Christmas tree the colours are not usual for Christmas. I bought this Britannia Christmas Tree die a long time ago with great expectations from it but each time I use it I find I don't like the result, but maybe that's just me.

Crafty Friends - #52 All That Glitters

Christmas Card Club Challenge #4 - Snowy Mountains and Skies

Hi Crafters,

Firstly I'd like to apologise for not visiting you all lately. 
Orders have been coming in thick and fast and whilst this is a good thing it prevents me from spending time blogging and commenting so I'm sorry if you haven't heard from me for a while. I appreciate all who have commented here of late and I will try to pop by soon.

Now on to the Christmas Card Club theme for this fortnight...


Christmas Village Die by Crafters Companion
Gold Glitter Card
Gold glitter Embossing Powder


This is a very minimal and CAS card design for me. I cut the die and inked through it with Versamark embossing ink then sprinkled with gold glitter embossing powder and heat set.
It looks very sparkly in real life.
I've only managed one card this challenge but a lot of the team have been making multiple cards this year to get ahead with the Christmas rush, do take a look at their marvelous designs - a list of their blogs is in the tab at the top of my page.
