Just made this and couldn't wait to show you. I love these clasps!!
Well hello. Long time no see. I'm sorry for that. When I started this blog I had intended to post most days but life has been throwing spinners left right and centre!
Since my last post I have made some new items but mainly ive been dealing with uni work - it's getting frighteningly close to exam time! Then there was the decision of what to study next and preparing for that. Ive now enrolled for my penultimate year which is daunting as it gets harder but it also means a step closer to graduation (and loosing my beloved NUS card lol). It only seems like 5 minutes since I embarked on this journey. Now it's drawing ever closer to the end!
I have also been to see the neurosurgeon. Nothing much to report other than another scan and another appointment so it's back to waiting, more gp appointments and keep taking the tablets!
Then there is the allotment Association. Ive had my allotment for almost a year, for the past 6 months or so ive been the vice chair but at the recent agm i have been promoted to chair. I am looking forward to this but with some trepidation as there are several issues to be resolved and not all easy to resolve so that has kept me busy too!
The creative stuff will be hsppening soon but in the meantime, here are some recent makes and some things i can make for you to buy, my items cover the cost of materials, no time is included. I make them because I enjoy it and it keeps me busy when I have nothing else to deal with :)
Take care :)

Latest Mother's Day card. I made this last week but managed to smudge the ink on the right hand edge with my finger. In an attempt to find a solution I stamped birds down the left edge because when I got the bird out he was facing the wrong way. I went overboard and completely wrecked the card and just shoved it to the side thinking I would have to write it off and learn from my idiot mistake. Ive been thinking about it in and off all week and this morning in a last ditch attempt to save it come up with this....
Well ive started making something new - bracelets!! I'm addicted do expect more stuff soon!! For now ive depleted supplies as I only bought a few bits to try. Here are some pics ... Some are for sale too x
Hi all. That's another week flown by!! Not much to post at the moment as I'm in the process of a large crochet piece which is taking all of my crafting time just now. Hopefully it will be done soon and I'll be back at the card making desk. I have made a card but had a bit of a disaster with it so I need to try and fix that before carrying on. See we all have off days lol. For now though it's bedtime. Night. The Greens x
Hey everyone, yesterday I made a white on white mothers day card and recorded it, here a link to the video :)
Mother's Day will soon be upon us do ive been making cards. First the green one I showed you the other day but also a blu variation using the same stamp and similar techniques.
The stamp is stampin up morning meadow, happy Mother's Day is from a WOW set of sentiments stamps, paper is again Dovecraft Basics II, blue card is from paper mill direct, ink is salty ocean by Tim Holtz and the dues are scalloped circles by X-Cut and the fancy shaped kne is Soellbinders from a Christmas set. This card was made for a good friend and fellow driving instructor to give to his 'old dear'
I was then asked by another driving instructor and good friend to make a white on white card with some pearls. I used an X-Cut embossing folder - butterflies, Soellbinders labels for the due cut and paper mania mum stamp using the wow clear ink pak and platinum embossing powder and finished with a few pearls in white. I love being inspired by people, it gives me immense pleasure to make cards but it's even better when people ask me to make something special.
Lastly for today's post, I finished a monkey, thus little guy is all ready to go to his forever home :)
Now I can't say goodbye before showing my handsome boy proudly showing off his new tag which arrived in the post this morning...
So today ive made a card using a stamp a good friend of mine Lea managed to find through her stampin up contacts, she is a demonstrator for them so if ever you need anything, she is the lady to ask :)
I put it to work with Tim Holtz Distress Ink 'mowed lawn' and promarkers apple, leaf green, buttercup, tulip yellow and eggnog. I also used X-Cut dies (the name evades me just now) and gorgeous green polka dot paper from Dovecraft Back to Basics II. Hope you like it.
The gorgeous stampin up stamp from the 'morning meadow' set.
All cut and stamped and ready for colouring, mounting and finishing touches. Below is the finished card. Hope you like it :)
I also used some gold halfback pearls, stickles diamond and my trusty tools, ebosser, collall glue, scissors and double sided foam tape :)
