Male card

It's been such a beautiful sunny day today. Hope you had some sunshine as well. In this card, I used a Inky Doodles background stamp, Funstamps (teddy), Sheena Douglas embossing folder and Dienamic dies. The banner was made with glimmer mists and a mask before it was embossed. The teddy image was coloured with water colours.  

Would like to enter this in the following challenges:

Do not fret because of evildoers or be envious of the wicked,
 for the evildoer has no future hope, 
and the lamp of the wicked will be snuffed out.

Cute image from PSX

Hope you are keeping nice and warm. It's very cold here but at least we have sunshine. Making some cards for the Cat Protection charity shop in Cambridge this week. For this card I used a large embossing folder and pearl card in the background. The image and sentiment are both by PSX. The image was coloured with watercolours .  Really please with how the card came out and the colours look a bit softer in real life.

Valentines card

This is a valentines card I made recently. I used Tonic dies and Penny black image. The embossing folder is a Sheena Douglas one which I used for the white layers. Hoping that you are having a good day today and keep warm.

Cross stitch project

Over the holidays I did a bit of stitching. Don't do as much cross stitch as I once did as it makes my wrists hurt. Made this for a friend I play golf with and hoping she will like it. Got the pattern from an old cross stitch magazine. 

I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness.

We are so blessed, to live in a place where see  such beautiful sunrises. May we see God's hand in our lives each and every day and may we give thanks for it. I pray that 2015 will see me follow the path that God has set out for me. 
Have a blessed 2015.

Bit of sewing and a new card

Hope the sun is shining where you are. Here is a card I made yesterday. The image is a Penny Black stamp and coloured with watercolours. I used two embossing folders for the circle and the start backgrounds. The elements were cut out suing Die-namic dies. 

Did a bit of sewing yesterday. Made this tablet holder with this adorable cat fabric (bought 5 years ago). It was really easy to make. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
When they say the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him.

My painted canvas

Hope you are having a good day. Finished this canvas yesterday for a friend's birthday. The bag was decorated to hold the canvas. Had no idea how the canvas would turn out but really pleased with it, the blue is a metallic blue and looks really lovely. The blue was mixed from Deco art paints (still trying to used them up) so will not be able to replicate the colour. 
Hope you have a lovely day.

Handmade coasters

It's a beautiful sunny morning here. Made a second set of coasters for a friend and decorated a tin to put them in. Really please with how they turned out. I used Startburst stains for the backgrounds and Club scrap stamps  and Dienamic dies. In the process of making another set with different words.

Hope you have a lovely day.

I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence;
 I possess knowledge and discretion.

Handmade Christmas stocking

My passion is stamping, so I decided to use a stamp to create a Christmas stocking. I cut two pieces of calico fabric and then using a woodware Christmas tree stamp and Versafine ink, stamped the image randomly over the fabric. Then used alcohol markers to colour the images, which worked really well. Making up the stocking was easy, lots of tutorials on the internet. Really enjoyed making my own pattern fabric, it's just like making your own pattern paper (which I love doing). This is my fifth stocking and will be my last for this year. 

Thanks for the visit and I have not a resolution with my Create and Craft order as yet. So if you are buying from them be very careful.

Update: finally got a refund from Create and Craft!
