You've been tangoed


You may be wondering why I titled my post
You've been tangoed
Well it because I've made my flower from a tango can
Die cut with X cut bloosem dies
The sentiments are from tattered lace
Sentiment dies cut in silver Miri
The embossing folder is crafters compaion
Rose vine
I'd like to enter
No patterned papers
Some thing tactile

Have a fantastic weekend

Hobby arts quirky turkey

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 

Happy crafting

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

Having a hoot

Hi all 

Really wanted to join in at less is more 
The theme is repetition,
So I thought I'd get the owl punch out 
He's so much fun 
His eyes give him so much character 
I've used a DL card 
Embossed three squares 
And added then to a gold foil Matt 
Then added my three owls 
The one in the middle doesn't know we're to look 
I made him and he make me smile 
Inside the card I added an insert 
With the sentiment 
Have a hoot on your birthday 

Happy crafting

Cardz 4 guyz Christmas card

morning all

Today I have a Christmas card to share
Over at 
The challenge is a #128 Christmas card
So after a little thought
Out came the foiling machine (laminator)
I designed the card on the docrafts digital designer
Using there Christmas past cd
Printed on the toner printer
And foiled in gold
While looking for ribbon I thought tartan
I found some gold thread
So I used it to rape the topper
Added a gold gem and some little ones
Matted on gold Mirri

Happy crafting
