New card


Hope you are having a great summer. Wanted to share this card I made for someone at the golf club. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley and coloured with watercolours. The sentiment stamp is from Crafter's Companion. Really like this image and can see myself using it a lot. Must admit I was a bit disappointed with with the depth of the LOTV stamp a bit shallow, personally I like stamps that are deep etched. Hope the weather improves for the rest of the summer.

Hello everyone and welcome to my new follower. I am grateful for all those who follow my blog and more so to those who take time to leave a comment, thank you.  
This is the second card I had to make this week. I really had fun making the background. Used lots of Club Scrap stamps and the star mask (love this mask). The golfer image was stamped and coloured with watercolours. Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week.
God bless you and keep you.

Golf card

 Click on photo for a better view

Hope you are all having a good day. Made this card for a male golfer at our club. On the kraft card I used a star mask with distress ink and then dusted Fairy dust over it. Then stamped the golf bag image (Papermania) in black all over. The green background was made using a rain drop stamp (Designs by Ryn) and wiped over with Panpastels and chalk ink. The main image is from Lili of the Valley and coloured with watercolours.  Really pleased with how it turned out only hope he will like it. Have a great day.

You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
 defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.

Sympathy card

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather. Made this card yesterday for a friend who lost her mother this week. I did not want to use black and white and used this lovely blue/green paper instead. I used four different dies on this card. Have a great day.

My second bucket hat!



Finally got around to making a second bucket ha,t as the first one did not fit. This one fits but maybe a tiny bit too big (I have a small head). Got the pattern for the Kitsch Bitsch blog. Used denim for one side and curtain weight fabric for the other. Really did not take very long to make. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Male card

Hope you are enjoying the lovely weather we are having. Sharing  a photo of this card I made last week. Sorry for the poor photo but it's the only one I took. Made the background using cosmic shimmer mist (brushed onto white card) and then embossed and metallic waxes applied on top. The main image was found on the internet and coloured with alcohol markers. It does look so much better in real life. Thanks for looking and have a great day. Playing lots of golf at the moment so crafting is taking a back seat for a while.

Birthday card

Hope you are enjoying the lovely weather. Finally had time to play in my craft room. Was asked to make a card for someone turning 50 and who liked sewing and crafty things. The background was made using Panpastels and stamps. Used some of the same stamps and embossed them and cut them out. Really pleased with how it came out. Have a great week.

Happy Birthday to Ewe!

Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather we are having. Visited my local craft shop (Crafting Time) yesterday and this is one of the stamp set I came back with. This set is called Love EWE  and is a Rachelle Anne Miller design from Crafter's Companion.  The image was stamped and embossed with clear powder and coloured with watercolours. The background was made by stamping the large image stamp on blue card with brown ink. Added the faux stitching detail to the image and sentiment. Used  Tonic dies to cut the sentiment. Have a lovely day.

A bit of felting with cat hair

My first attempt at felting and I am pretty happy with it. I won some wool felt from Claire at Hope Jacare Designs a while ago and my friend bought me some felting tools for my birthday so I finally had a go. The centre of the flower is felted cat hair. The cat hair was donated by my lovely Skipper. There will be more felting with cat hair in the future. :) Have a lovely day.

Golfing card

It's another beautiful day here. Must make the most of the sunshine, even though doing anything in this heat is hard work. :) Made this card over the weekend. The background was sprayed with Glimmer mist and embossed. The image is a Papermania one, which I coloured with alcohol markers. Enjoy the lovely sunshine.
