AS you may or may not know I will be of on Holiday tomorrow. No internet access as I am going to indulge myself in my second love painting. So I am of to Croatia tomorrow for 1 week. Back to England and of on another jaunt. Celebrating my Aunts 90th Birthday, seeing my daugther, spending time with my sisters and brother and then staying with my sister in law and back home on the 14th May. Have fun crafting.
This is my new design, Flowers from Granny Art and the CU Template from Dizzy Designs
I use Kaleiedoscope to make the base and frame around the flowers. I use CS2 to put everything together and the Sentiments. You will be able to purchase the design from cardmakingdownloads. There are two different bases and 2 envelopes so it makes it a bit of a mix and match set.
This card I have designed with Fathers Day in mind But I know it will do for other occasions if I change the sentiment. I am getting really hooked on the Double Twisted Easel Card it is so simple to make. The sentiment reads. Your Ace Dad Happy Fathers Day. I made this purely in CS2. The decoupagae sheet can be bought from cardmakingdownloads. Look for Susan Slogrove designer
What a wonderful sporting weekend. Loved the Gran Prix. Well done Hammie and sorry to see Murray beaten. But did watch the final and it was as good as the Murray match so not to disappointed. Rapha is good. Looking forward to the next gran prix and tenis tornament
I stepped into my friends Garden the other day a saw this rose. I new what it would become as soon as I saw it. With the help of Granny Art I came up with this pocket card. I just love the colours. This design is being sold at craftmakingdownloads
I was trying to clear some of the bits in my craft room when I found these three characters in a bag ready to put together. So I stopped tidying and started to make them up. I used my Martha Stewart border punches and my cuttlebug for the shapes,
This is Roger the aritist and he is a digi stamp being sold to help the funds of the Air Ambulance in Yorkshire. I used Promakers to colour him in and this is a list of colours I used to do it. Gold, Tulip Yellow,Leaf Green, Pear Green,Powder Blue Azure,Royal Blue,Poppy,Antique Pink, Orchid, SatinTan, Shade, Cinnamon, Cocoa.
I have just finished knitting this for the little boy up the road. It was his birthday on Friday but he was not very well. I have got his green jelly in the fridge waiting for him to come round and see me.
This is my latest card design. Granny Art has the Mermaid I made the backing sheets in CS2.
I saw the image that Granny had made and liked it but was not sure how to use it. Then I was sitting having a cup of tea and an image of a card came into my head with the mermaid on it.
I made a tag to secure the mermaid to the shell. I also decided to print a backing sheet on the card first then turned over and printed the shell on the other side so the card is patterned on both sides. I hope you like it
This week I have been busy with cards for the car boot I have also been designing some new cards which you can see on cardmakingdownloads I will hopefully make some of my designs to show you next week.
Over the past ten years I have had a lot of happy moments crafting. Wether it be Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Painting or Card Making. I have also made some patchwork items macrami wall plaques and hanging basket hangers, I have had a lesson in how to make a stain glass windows. My best friend is my partner of 25 years and my camera. I have taken over 17,ooo. pictures in just under 7 years and I probably have not zapped many.
