PIF - Cute Stash!


I received lots of bits to play with from Steph..... Thankyou Steph, I can't wait to settle down to some 'me' time & play, things have been full-on for me over the last few days, but hopefully I'll gain a respite soon!
The first three people to leave a comment will each get a few crafty bits from my stash sent out to them & then they too can PIF to 3 more who are first to leave comments. I think thats how it works?! I am new to this!
Hopefully will have some more things to post over the next few days.
TTFN.

Birthday Cards







Two more cards . These were made for two of my daughter's friends who both share a birthday .


Pink Petticoat images used on the first along with duo pink/orange card stock & Making Memories 'maddie' papers & tiny pink buttons, images coloured with aqua pencils.


The second I used Pink Petticoat Big Dots & Blooming Doodles images coloured with aqua pencils & with a smidge of stickles glitter & layered onto dark pink card . Dotty grosgrain ribbon is from my own stash. Square scallop punch (woodware)

Love Was In the Air! (Belated)











Just popping these up to share. They were a team effort between my daughters & meself!
I had a frantic day when trying to make these, as usual everything was last minute with me.... I really must get organised! The first one was made with a leather look blue card, pink petticoat papers & heart image medium red brads from dovecraft & smashed font edited in word.








The second was so simple & quick that I had to pinch myself & then restrain myself from going any further. Again, Big Dots download from pink petticoat & heart image from sweet cupcake collection were used.

Handmade with Love.


I have just brought this home with me after a flying visit this weekend to the in-laws, it needed some more glue on the photos as they were starting to lift. It was a Christmas present to them back in 2006. My first attempt at trying to put something nice together on canvas.

Canvas was bought from eBay & I used Prima Flowers & Clear Swarovski flatback crystals to embellish. The decorative corners were made by using some freebie foam stamps from a paper craft magazine - pigment ink & gold embossing powder.

View From Our front Door




I took this series of piccies a month or so back after getting up at an unearthly hour to drop my other half off at work...I needed the car. (the things I have to do! He has a lambretta (:cool of cool :) but, not much use when the weather is a bit chilly.....bless.)


They were only taken within a matter of minutes of each other & I was amazed that you can actually see the difference. We live in a small house in a quietish village, we need to move really as we are all a bit cramped, but as you can see the location is lovely.... even on a cold, frosty morning.

Could'nt Resist!


At long last I have managed to find a few spare moments & a camera for a few days, I've just a few images to upload as I am a busy bunny at the mo..... Lots of catching up to do!

The card was just crying out to be made with yet another Pink Petticoat purchase!

Paper, sweet cupcake collection images, monograms - curly tail's downloads all from Pink Petticoat & just simple cutting, layering, a bit of tweaking in MS paint & a dab here & there with 3d gloss accents, plus eyelets.

Voila! A rather cheeky card for my beloved!

Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh! HELP!

Horror has struck today. My trusted camera has finally packed up & run out on me!
I've had it years & just lately my pics have not been brilliant.... I thought it was my limited photography skills, but now I am not so sure!
I am lost without my camera. I had some cards to upload & pics to take for work too! What's a girl to do? I am skint, so no chance of a new one :(
Think I will have to go on the scrounge & ring round to see if friends or family maybe can lend me one for a day or two.
Posting will resume when problem is solved.
Katty.
OXOXO.
