Hi Folks

As the eagle eyed of you will see by the title, I am back on the DT for 
My Craft Studio and  Tattered Lace. So I have gone from doing nothing to being
in the thick of it again. 

The dies I used are Blissful Blooms and are part of the 
Sweet Serenity collection of  Dies and a CD.
The die will be shown on Create & Craft over the next few days

Thank you for visiting.

Hi Everyone,

It has been a while, but, hopefully I will be back 
blogging more regularly from now on. 

I have a couple of  exciting things happening, one I can tell you about now
the other in the near future.

I have been asked to rejoin the Magik Graphic DT. ( it was previously 
Jems Designs ) it is still owned and run by the lovely
Susan Andrews. This is taking me back to my 1st love in crafting working with 
CD roms.

My card today is for the 16th Birthday of my friends son
Jamie, he loves vintage transport mainly Trains & Ships so thought this
would be ideal for him, I have even thrown in a vintage car and Penny Farthin
for good measure.
The image come from 

I also used a couple of Tattered Lace dies
Foil Glue from BeCreative.
my new Watermark is from

Thanks for dropping by
Hugs to al

Sheenagh & Dave Anniversary 2016

Hi Folks

This is a post I scheduled before Christmas.

I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas, we have had friends from 
Scotland staying you will probable know Sheenagh Hulin from FB and here Hubby Dave.

We had a great time, ( well I hope we did as am writing this just before they arrived lol ).

Their anniversary is on the 31st January, so had to get it finished before they arrived.

I think the Heart Wreath from Clarity Groovi plates  work so well and loved
making this one, as I do all my parchment creations using Groovi plates.

I hope everyone has a truely amazing 2017 
Hugs to all.

Peacock Beauty

Good Afternoon Folks
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas,
 we did, had our good friends Sheenagh Hulin and Hubby to stay, lots of
eating and drinking lol.

 I didnt get anytime to spend in my craft room, and am still struggling with an
absent mojo, however,  today  I made it there.

The CD is Collage Fusion Stamp it up and the folder I used is
Peacock Beauty, just love the colours of this folder.

I did play around with the background and the frame,  using Serif Craft Artist., so this background is
not on the cd. didn't change the colours, 
just superimposed the ladies head and some Butterflies, onto the background, 

Anyway hope you like this card.

Memories are forever

Hi Everyone 

I have finally managed to make a card and blog it. It has been a while lol.

As most of you know, we are back in our house finally, it has taken nearly 11 months
and a lot of heart ache, don't think I could go through another flood like Storm Desmond, 
get very jittery every time it rains !! hopefully, that will pass with time.

Anyway enough of being maudlin,

This is a card I made using a CD the first one for a year or two, and am a bit out of practise
with this medium, but, could not resist using the new CD from
Magik Graphics ( formerly JemsDesigns ) 
Collage Fusion Stamp it up.
It contains 12 folders all gorgeous and very usable.

As I said I do need some practise, icluding my photography skills , but, hope you like what I have
managed to create.
Hugs to all

Clarity Groovi "Velvet"

Good Evening All
I hope you have all had a great weekend, once again
we have been packing boxes, just for a change lol.
Our house is coming along slowly but nicely, Kitchen is been delivered
on Tuesday fingers crossed.

I needed to make a card for a neighbour, who is going back to work as a
Trainee GP at our surgery, after having a year off on  maternety leave.

So, once again I have used my current favourite Groovi plate 
Velvet Art Nouveau border plate I also used the swirls on the same plate
I also used the Art Deco Alphabet and Pricking Border plate.
all available from 

The Eagle eyes of you will notice this is not stuck together, mainly because,
I have no idea which box all my glues, & tapes are so will buy some instead
of opening lots of boxes.
I hope you like this as much as I have enjoyed making it. 
Thank you for visiting
