Morning all,
Hope you've all got fabulous bank holidays planned,
Today's post is some thing a little different,
I've had a little plan for this going on for a while,
So after visiting a few charity shops,I've managed to pick up 
Some tea cups and saucers 
I got some bargain bin lace from the market,and dug out,
An old kanban kit for the paper roses and butterfly's,
I used pinflair ice diamonds and pearls from my stash
The hat pins I've had some time and wove on a bit of organza ribbon
To finish it off
Happy crafting all

Funky vw camper van

Morning all from a very wet and windy West Midlands,
Today's my birthday and I'm feel under the weather to say the least,
So today its a hippy and funky card to try and cheer us all up,
I've been playing with my birthday die stash from the Robert Addams collection,
the camper van is not quite as challenging as the bike,but just as effective I love it.
I've used the dove craft paper again,and as I only had 12x12 papers I cut the front cover
Up to get the smaller design on the camper,the sentiment is from the tattered lace sentiment set
And the frame is spellbinders timeless rectangles 4,docrafts big bloomer and ribbon and daisy from my stash

My Crafting stash

Morning one and all 
As I posted yesterday,I was off to the Birmingham motorcycle museum 
Craft fair, so I thought I would share what I bought,it's my birthday on 
The 6th of May so my budget was higher,as they are birthday gifts,so I'm trying
Robert Addams die for the first time,I wanted some thing a bit more manly,
And some thing for the youth,so I got techno gadgets,camper van and the classic motor cycle,and they were kind enough to give me a cup cake die,I was over the moon.
The start of my Robert Addams die collection 
When I studied the motor cycle I though I may of bit off more than I could chew,but following
The on line instructions I did fine and more than happy with the results,just need to get it on 
To a card now.i also managed to find some bargain dies,the record being £1.50 for a film strip die,plus some others,see in the photos 
Crafty hugs Debbs xx
These are my crafty bargain dies.
The classic motorcycle made up
I think any guy would be
Made up to receive
This on a card.
