Girly door hanger

This door hanger was part of a pressie for Milly, one of my daughter's friends, her favourite colours are lilacs and aqua, so out came the acrylic paints along with glue, glitter, die-cutting machine and dies, ribbon, chipboard and my absoloute fave embellishments, prima flowers. I really enjoyed making this, it was the perfect excuse to get my crafty hoards out and get messy :)

Shame about the tidying up that had to be done afterwards :(

Birdy Card

The card above was made using hero arts sparkle stamp sets, I love working with these, they are so handy, the ones with birdy images on are just too cute!
Textured cardstock for the background which was stamped using a toning chalk ink pad. The main image stamped, coloured with watercolour pencils and layered using a fiskars circle template & cutter and a scallop punch. Stamped, coloured and cut flowers and a layered sentiment along with a finishing touch of teeny, swarovski crystals

Long time, no see, hear and speak!

Wow! I was beginning to think I was in serious danger of becoming a hermit!

I've missed blogging sooooooo much. Lot's to catch up on, I see I've been missing out on some fabulous work, girls (and guys!)

Computer crashes are definitely not fun.... coupled with a health crash too, things have been a little difficult lately to say the least! Anyway, I'm back, thank goodness.... and itching to set my fingers loose on lots more creative pursuits. I do hope you're all as well as can be and trying to make the most of the typical British weather..... I'm sure there is a big fireball, named the sun out there somewhere, fingers crossed we'll see it again pretty soon!

I've a few creative niblets that I managed to save from the archives that I can share. The one above is my first attempt at making jewellery. This was made at a trimcraft workshop nearly two years ago. We had to share a box of beads and findings, I was left with quite a lot of large beads and ended up making quite a 'different' bracelet than was originally intended. It was a fab day, everyone who attended had a great day and we had loads of fun learning some great beading techniques.
