Just in Time


Here a little card I've made for
There challenge is Time 
So I went  to my polka doodles cd 
Winnie in wonderland 
All the elements are from the cd 
I made the sentiment with docrafts digital designer 
And cut with a circle cutter 
Then layered it on to a watch face 
So the Element is framed

Cardz 4 galz

I'm back 

So sorry I've been neglecting blog land
I do hope your all well 
I've had my hand rather full
With one thing and another 
Well hubbies back to work tomorrow 
Hopefully he will be ok 
I've been struggling abit with my own health
I suffer with ME and my pain has been abit off the scale 
And we've also sold my mother in laws house 
Not to mention my new furry baby 
And yes it is 
I've having a baby she on my lap now 
She sleeps with me 
I have to sneak out if I don't want her to come 
The only places she doesn't really come,
 is hospital,doctors and supermarket 
 Any way back to the card 
Use at least one die challenge 
I hot foiled a sentiment off my docrafts designer 
Matted on gold Miri 
The pointsettia is from spellbinders
And the fir branch from mariannes design
Finished off with a few gems.
Here's a little pic of coco she growing fast

Shape it up @ cd Sunday

Hi what a beautiful day 

The card  today is for the Cdsunday shape it up challenge
I had a few ideas but went with my bottle card 
I love my Winnie in wonderland cd 
And thought this shape was perfect 
With a drink me label around the neck of the bottle 
All the images,papers and labels were off the cd 
I used the bottle image to cut around on a DL card 
I added some silver leaf to the bottle top 

I've done lots of layers and added and old book page to
I used my distress ink around the papers 
It took all my will power not to add a white rabbit 
I love him so much 
Hope you like it 

Thank you for visiting 
Happy crafting

Hello all 

Hubbys suffering a bit today 
He's rather black blue purple yellow
You get the picture 
Every day he has new bruises 
And still in loads of pain with his neck 
Let's hope tomorrow is better, 
Well on to my card 
When I saw the hobby art show on tv 
I just had to have Daryl the quirky turkey 
I've coloured him with spectrum noir pens 
And added gogglie eyes 
The sentiments all come with the stamp set 
I think there so funny paper and gems from my stash 

There's a smaller Daryl who i added in side 
Along with a couple more sentiments 
I think you'll agree he make a real fun alternative Christmas card 
Theme Christmas

I'm late I'm late

I glazed the watch faces with glossy accents and added some enamel dots and heart charm 

Thanks for the lovely comments on my posts
I do appreciate each and every one 
I've been a bit preoccupied 
Since Friday,hubby had a nasty accident at work 
He was knocked unconscious by a large coil of metal 
His work partner thought he was dead 
Thank god for hard hats or things could of been very different 
He still knocked about and very fragile 
But hopefully on the mend 
Any way back to the card 

It's from Winnie in wonderland by poolka doodles 
I'm in love with the white rabbit 
And a little bit crazy for flamingoes 
I love the cd and the fabulous sentiments 

Happy crafting

Summer vacation

Morning from bright and sunny West Midlands 

As you can tell from my introduction I'm on the mend 
Seeing one of Pauline's post
I quickly caught the shops before closing 
To get the making cards magazine
As I was inspired by the free cd
And Pauline's amazing creations 
As I wanted to join in at
The theme being summer vacation 
After looking through the cd 
I feel in love with this image 
Takes me right back to long summers
In the garden at home or even the carvan parks we visited

I used some green lidl card to Matt and layer
All the papers are from the free cd called play time
Pearls and pin wheel from home bargains 
I even added a small image on the back of my card to finish it of 
And mirrored some of the lay out on the inside 

Enjoy the summer special if you have young one 
They grow far to quick
