I made these two a while ago for a swap on UKScrappers and forgot all about them until today.The photos aren't very clear-poor quality mobile!-but they make me smile so I wanted to put them here!
I just couldn't resist the hat!

another quickie birthday card

Left it to the last minute again and had to make a very quick card for my nephew.Knowing he is a Toy Story fan made it all a bit easier to decide what to do!

These three ATCs are for a swap on UKStampers. The theme was open, just each ATC had to be different. I raided my stamp box and found some that I'd forgotten about. It was good fun having a mess and I got to spray Shimmerz everywhere!  

The background was done with Shimmerz spray with a few small pieces of paper used as masks. The girl is stamped and stuck over the top. There's a coating of rock candy stickles but the pic doesn't show that. I love this stamp of the girl and will be using it again soon I'm sure!

I found a spare bit of angelina fibres that I was going to throw and thought it'd make a good background. The image was stamped and coated with mod podge and the crown stuck on. 

The background was done with Shimmerz spray with lighter ink around the outside. I stamped the image twice and stuck the bird on top. Couldn't resist a jaunty orange hat!

New baby card

The new baby caught me off guard by arriving on time so I had to rustle up a card pretty quickly! I remembered this stamp that I've had for ages and hardly ever think to use. I stamped it with tattered rose distress ink and stuck it to some angelina fibres. I was going to stick the princess crown to the baby's head but as I was in a rush I threaded it on ribbon instead.....I must be more organised and then I'll be prepared!

This is one of ten ATCs I made for a swap on UKScrappers based around bees and inspirational words. I don't have a bee stamp so I had to draw them (apologies for the poor state of my drawing!). The background is distress ink sprayed with vintage photo reinker. The title of the ATC is..' Tiddles always wanted to be a bee!'

Christmas card

I didn't get round to making many cards this year due to being in the middle of an assignment for uni.This is one I was pleased with because I got to use the bird from my Tim Holtz die-any excuse!I had so many stamps and papers for Christmas and was gutted not to have the time to use them.So, no more studying after June this year so that I have time to Christmas-it-up properly!

Wedding present

The first time I've ever dared to make a present for something so important. I was so pleased that it turned how out exactly as I envisaged it. The finished product had a photo of the happy couple in the centre over the lace but I forgot to take a photo of it!


I've not made many this year (oops!-last year!) because I stupidly signed up for a few modules and study got in the way. I'm posting a few of the ones that actually made it, and here's hoping that I get chance to make much more this year.

More ATCs

ATC for a swap that I did when I wanted to try using telephone directory paper for a background!

The second page of favourite season. It was a challenge choosing which photos to use as I have so many!

I've been involved in a circle journal on my crafting forum and thought it was about time I got round to posting the photos up!
This is the first page I did in a journal about favourite seasons.
