Beautiful you....

For this card I've used a Beautiful You image and a couple of stamps from the Stampin UP High Tide set, the birds and the sea..... I've used the same paper for her dress and the the backing paper....a very quick and easy card to make.....

Have a good weekend...

Golf anyone?

Its over two weeks since my last post, my eyes are a lot better but still not completely clear, its made me quite miserable not being able to do much crafting and I've really missed it...

.I've got lots of Hunkydory toppers which I can make up into cards so at least I can do that now. This topper is  one  from the Magnificent Men collection,
I've found a huge box of embellishments that I need to use up and amongst them was this little golf tee and golf ball, shame a didn't have a third one to put on my card as things always look better in 3's..
My photograph isn't brilliant and the wording looks blurred the the actual card is fine its just me!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...and thanks for dropping by..

LOTV Art pads...

Since Thursday I have had conjunctivitis in both my eyes and have been unable to do very much in the way of crafting as my vision is very blurred with the eye drops but I did manage to put together a couple of LOTV cards using a couple of the Art pad images, it such a shame they have stopped these......the frame I already had in my 'spares' box so it was a nice quick card and I did find a box of charms including the little butterfly which I need to use...

I have some sqaure doylies which worked perfectly with this image...so far this year I have been very good using card and DSP that I already have but on the stamp front....sadly I've been a little naughty!!....
I see postage is going up again so trying to make my cards fairly flat.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Timeless Textures....

 I've been looking at the Stampin Up Timeless textures stamp set for ages as you can create lovely backgrounds with it and when I spotted one on Ebay I bought it and that is what I've used for the backgroun on this card.

The image was an odd one I found in my odds box so can't tell you where it came from so just mounted it up on oval dies used my Timless Texture stamp set to stamp on a piece of old Stampin Up DSP,    added a touch of cream lace,   a bow and my card was created...hope to play more with the little stamp set...

Its a beautiful Saturday morning down here in Somerest the sun is out and it ceertainly makes you feel happy and I would like to think that Spring is on its way with the daffodils out in the garden...

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine...

Beautiful you.....

I've not beel a very good blogger lately but I have been doing other things and sometimes other things in your life take over.

One of my New Years resolutions was to try and  NOT buy anymore DSP but to use up DSP paper that has  been laying around for a very long time...also, we all have papers  left in our paper pads that we aren't that keen on and these papers are some of those....  I decided to use one of the Beautiful You images, I paper pieced her umbrella and I think I really should have done her dress darker as the papers aren't that bright...but it done now....

thanks for popping by

Rosetta...

These are two really quick cards made from a Hobby Horse kit  that I had bought a long time ago....the images are delightful... 
If you are short of time (which  have been this past two weeks) then it's nice to have something that you can make a quick card from....The photographs are brilliant as the light was poor when I took pictures..
I haven't been idle I've been busy making samples for our Stamping day we are having on 25th March but can't post anything I made until after then....

Have a good weekend
