Lililicious Jems New CD

Good Afternoon Folks
Well it was suppose to be heavy rain this afternoon but at the moment it is brilliant sunshine,
I hope it is the same where ever you are.
Jems Designs have just launched 2 new CDs on Create and Craft today.
Lililicious and Even More Beautiful they are only available from C & C until 31st August after that you can buy them from Jems Designs
I hope you like my samples

Just to let you know, quite a few of the frames, fan and backgrounds cuts were
designed my Tina Fallon.
This is a MDF wall hanging
painted with black Gesso
the flowers were dipped in the melt pot with clear UTTE
and just on using a hot wax gun.

                                                The end panel is a book mark that is perforated which
                                                    makes it  easy to detach.

Hi All
what a scorcher it is today it was nearly unbearable in my Craft room, in winter I am freezing
in there and summer I swelter!!!!
Managed to get a card done today, I have used an image from
Rick St.Dennis, I had never heard of him or seem his images until checking out the blog
of a fellow DT member.
You can find his all his images  there are lots of unusual images for
you to see and buy, if your like me and could not resist. I bought 2 images, but, one is for
a DT project so cannot show you that yet.

Eleanor & Pickles Magical Christmas Flight

Hi Folks
I hope you are all ok, I would like to welcome all my new followers and
to thank everyone for all your wonderful comments, I really appreciate them.
As I only have a couple of cards scheduled this month, suppose to be on a break,
but I do get a bit bored, I thought I would make one or two Christmas cards.
I have used an image from my favourite Artist Heather Valentine,
and you can buy this and loads more from her shop at
 challenge 11  free digi is the adorable Gemma Gumdrop Sticky Wings.
Normally I put lots of bling, flowers and ribbons on my card, but, being conscious of the
high postage charges I have left this one quite plain
