Snow & Ice DVD

Good Morning Everyone
Well yet again it is dark, dismal and wet here in Kendal
Hence the quality of the photos for my card
I have made another Christmas card from  
Pollyanna Pickering's
Snow & Ice, as you  know  this DVD  is a bit of an obsession with me at the moment  lol
This card is for my Son & Daughter in Law, the problem was
picking a folder to use as they would love them all, but as they
have rescued and Owl or two over the yrs thought this one was very apt.
I hope you like how I have used this amazing image

Here Comes the Girls

Good Afternoon All
From a very wet and miserable Kendal
I have just popped in with a quick little card I made
using an absolutely gorgeous digi image from
Here Comes the Girls CD from
Creative Crafting World unfortunately  this
CD is no longer available to buy
It is a very simple card ( as most of you know I don't do simple lol)
However, it was very difficult to photograph,
The acetate base was printed and then embossed and finally sprayed with pearl sparkle
 unfortunately the
printing was very pale and does not show up on the photo. but as I wanted
the image to take centre stage it is no problem really.
Thank you for visiting

Tatty Twinkle

Hi Folks
Well I am here again, I have been really  enjoying myself  over the past few days
making all the cards that I have been to busy  to make
While I am waiting for my new Tatty Twinkle stamps to arrive, I though
I would colour this one from the last release.
I teamed it up with some of Tattered Lace dies from the Oriental collection
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and I will leave you in peace for a day or two now.

Just because I have some time to spare

Hi Everyone
Well as the title suggest, I have not got any samples to make.
We have not got any Visitors this week and my cold has gone, so
I have plenty of time to spare and can craft for just ME
The card I have made is for my son & daughter in law's Wedding Anniversary.
It might seem an odd choice with all the black on it, but as their
wedding was at Halloween I thought it was very apt it is from
a CD  Wildlife by Pollyanna Pickering and this is the 1st time I have used it.
 I used Folder No.16

Thank you for visiting, it is much appreciated.
