Father's Day

Hello, I don't know where the past two weeks have gone - time has just flown by. The number of cards I have got to make for birthdays etc is growing by the day and I want to make some bookmarks for my little boy's summer fair. I managed to make a couple of cards last night while watching football / big brother for fathers day. I have lots of ideas in my head for the various cards I want to make but have to keep stopping to do the washing, cooking, other household chores - I need a maid !!!
Have a fab weekend, love Kitty

Hello - hope you are enjoying your Sunday, I made this card using papers from from the kanban All seasons CD - I just loved the flower paper so much I thought it was a shame to cover it up, so I just added one of the gift tags on the disc and a jewel. xx

Crafters Companion #1

Good morning, This is the card I made last night I'm going to enter it into the Crafters Companion Challenge. You start off with the sketch they provide and work from that. I started with a 7" by 7"base and then mattted and layered onto it with the olive and pale orange card I then used a piece of floral paper from the popcorn floral CD. I used the cuttlebug to emboss the white card and used a popcorn topper as the central image. I rounded all my corners (I'm obsessed with having round corners) and then gave it a coat of silver spray and shine.

I think this is about the third sketch I have followed to make a card and I have found them really good and very inspiring. I have found using the sketches is a great way to combine lots of different techniques and a nice way of using papers and embelishments in your craft box that you were perhaps a little unsure of how to use.

Have a lovely day from

Hello we have been for a swim this morning and I should now really be doing the housework but I thought I would look for a crafting challenge to do instead - the housework can wait.
Here are a few of the cards I have made from all the christenings we have been to recently.
The alphabets are from a CD from I then added an image and here and there gave a spray with crafters companion spray and sparkle.

Entry for Fairymoon Sketch #21

Good evening - it's been such a lovely sunny day - went shopping today to buy my little boy some new shoes - we came back with two pairs plus I managed to get some christmas shopping done !!!

I know it's only June but if you see some bargains then you have to buy them don't you - plus the fact when it comes to December I can avoid the crowds and stay at home and make some cards :-)

Here is a card that I made this morning I am going to enter it into the fairymoon crafts ( sketch challenge. The sketch for this week was #21 and the colour needed to be black and white.

I made it using some plain cardstock which I layered up I embossed the panels and the label with the cuttlebug and punched the border with one of the Martha Stewart edge punches, then just finished it off with a piece of ribbon and some jewels - and I can't seem to make a card without rounding the corners !

Have a lovely evening x

Mum's Posh Hat

I made this card using one of the alphabets from a CD from I printed it out several times and decoupaged the letters adding some fine glitter around the edges of the final layer- to give them a bit of bling ! I then added a forever friends bear from the Forever Friends Collectors CD and a couple of jewels.
