Love What You Do

I am so lucky that I love what I do,
so this set is right up my street.
A pretty adaptable set, and an even prettier set of Papers.

I needed some quick cards so chose one of the papers,
(I think you can see some of the shimmer in the pics),
sandwiched a doily (cut into two) between two oval layers.

The topper was stamped in black and embossed with clear powder,
then coloured slightly differently, adding some small enamel shapes.
Not sure the differences show up in the pics as well as in reality,
but was pleased with the results and love the colours.
Cards don't have to be complicated or take hours to make to be pretty, don't you agree?


I just remembered to pop over to the Snippets Playground, as I used snippets of card for the ovals.
(Cutting a doily in half probably doesn't count as a snippet lol)
Do take a look at this fab blog!

Hope you've enjoyed your weekend,
thanks for visiting, I always appreciate you stopping by.

Beautiful Blizzard

Well we've gone from heatwave to rain all day,
that's more the norm here,
but now I'm talking Blizzards!
But don't worry.....only in the world of Stampin' Up!

The new seasonal Autumn/Winter catalogue is due out next month...
Yes I know, far too soon!......I haven't gone through the annual one properly yet!

But, I have to say this is one catalogue where I want it all!

I just had to show you this one, as it works for any time of year....

It's quite abstract....splats and splodges....and in my favourite red rubber too!
You can do so much more with red rubber.
Another new product is some Shimmer Paint, which can be used on lots of surfaces,
and adds a subtle sheen.

I used some Twinkle Twinkle DSP for the main background,
then splodged on the focal point, adding some sequins and shimmer paint.

Thanks for stopping by, I really do appreciate your visits and comments.

Notes of Kindness

Hello again, thanks for stopping by, and I am hoping you are well.
I'm sharing some kit cards today.....from one of my favourite kits.....

Notes of Kindness

I just love the soft colours, the delicate images, and all the elements,
and I did add some extra sequins etc on some of them


I held my first All Day Class recently where everyone chose a Kit to work on for the day,
and it was a huge success, and such good fun

I decorated each set, and made them a stamp case with printed insert
according to the kit they chose, and had a few "extras" available.

You may have seen my holiday pics, and I took this set on board!
It was so easy, as everything you needed was in the kit, I just took scissors and glue.

Wizard Weekend

Hello there
thanks for visiting.....hope alls well with you and yours...

Here's a magical card for a friend, was a BIG birthday,
so wanted it to be a bit special.....started with the Wizard, gently coloured,
added the sentiment.....a piece of the Designer Series Paper mounted as the background.
then wanted to add some "magic"....
Didn't have time to get out powders etc, so took the small star stamps in the set,
and created the "magic" with different coloured inks,
then added some stars from Twinkling stars to add dimension.


Stamped inside with Around The Corner, and mounted the paper and topper on 
Granny Apple Green Card Stock.
I also added a bit of Wink of Stella to the wizard, but fear I need a replacement,
as it seemed a bit dry.

Hope you are managing to keep cool in this hot weather.
Stay Safe

Brecon Beacons

Hello there, thanks for stopping by!

I thought I'd share some holiday pics for a change....
our latest adventure was a Narrowboat......

Here's Captain Alan looking very happy at the Helm...


Here's me very hot and bothered doing the locks...
We have never done this before........Alan took to it like a duck to water.... :)

I on the other hand was stressed and found it quite hard.
I was too terrified to steer the boat through the locks,
so manning them and the drawbridges was down to me.
We did meet LOTS of lovely people along the way, and I did get help from them sometimes,
and I did steer the boat in calmer waters, when there were no bends!

Totally out of my comfort zone, but I'm glad I did it,
and funnily enough yes I would do it again!
Just goes to show.....it's good to challenge ourselves sometimes.

A lovely family of 10 we met....8 babies eek!


Very pretty village Crickhowell


Stunning scenery......

Lots of fun decks at houses and moorings....

 some had barbecues, sheds, patio furniture......fun weekends and hols I'm sure,...

Quaint Villages.....

and of course an on board craft room.... ;)
(well I had to take some with me didn't I ?!........SU Kits were ideal!)

with a fabulous view!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend
and I hope to see you again very soon!

Thanks for visiting
