Ruby Wedding Box

After a long gap, and moving house (that`s another story) it seems my mojo is back. At a time when I should be painting and putting right a very unloved house, I want to make cards! I made this box with a file from Silhouette. I don`t think I`ll have time to be making Xmas cards though!!

Feathered Friends

Good Morning Bloggers, I seem to be in a 'Bird' phase. The birds were cut with my Silhouette Cameo and the Blossoms were using the print and cut feature. Spotty Flamingos, doily and sun also cut with Cameo.

Bird House

My poor neglected blog, something different for me today. I saw a birdhouse at the Range for £1 and couldn't resist it. I painted it with Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint, then mica powders in green and pink followed by Pearl moon Guilding wax. I really enjoyed making this Birdhouse, think I will be making more!! Have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend everyone xx

Pretty in Pink

Its a lovely sunny day here in Colchester, hope your all getting some of it as well. This card is using a Saturated Canary image called 'Princess Rose Red' Sentiment is also a digi from 'Little Claire' It wasn't too much of a strain on my colouring abilities which are very limited. Patterened paper is from HOTP and I used a ribbon punch from EK Sucess. Sorry I can't give links as I haven't learnt how to do that yet. Have a good day.

A Cute Butterfly

After a long absence I have returned to my lonely blog with a card, my first since Christmas. I haven't been totally idol though, I have made a Tudor costume for my little Grand Daughter and a Dress for my Daughter. I've also crocheted a couple of headbands.
