Hugs

I've really no idea if anyone still visits my blog as I seem to have got out of the blogging habit, however, thought I would share my latest creation.  I find it so hard to make time these days for card making with general life taking over so much but needed a card for a work colleague of mine who has recently had an operation.



I've used a Mo Manning image which I've had for ages but had never used before and coloured with Promarkers.  Sentiment is from Paper Smooches and various papers are from my stash as are the gems.  Punch and Paperclip are from SU.

Long Time, No See

It's been such a long time since I last posted on here but trying hard to get back into the habit.

I haven't made a card in a long while, instead I've been trying to organise and catalogue my stamp collection and other craft items and I'm slowly (very slowly!) getting through it!

One of my clients recently became a Granny for the first time and I wanted to make her a special card so here it is…


I've used my favourite baby image - Baby Hammock by Penny Black coloured with Copics and Promarkers with a bit of Glamour Dust for sparkle.  Papers are Magnolia, stitched around the edges and finished off with some flowers (The Ribbon Girl), punched leaves (Martha Stewart), webbing (Bunny Zoe Crafts), Sparkly jewels (Stampin Up)and a Teddy Bear charm from my stash.  Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.


This is the inside - not a good photo I know but for some unknown reason my camera was playing up and this was the best shot I could get!  Decorated with Magnolia papers, again stitched around the edges and then added a Paper Smooches sentiment to the plain white card together with a Penny Black Stickeroo and some doodling.

And A Couple More!

Here's a couple more cards I made with the Docrafts Gorjuss decoupage sets and papers.  Had quite a bit of time on my hands while Sam was ill last week and haven't made so many cards in a long time!  However, now everything is back to normal, back to the boring things like housework and shopping!

A Few Gorjuss Girls

Had some spare time on my hands today while I was waiting for the Plumber to call so put together a few cards using the Docrafts Gorjuss kits.





Used dies from SU and MFT and sentiment stamps from Paper Smooches plus Washi Tape from Docrafts Gorjuss range.

Two the Same but Slightly Different!

Not sure if anyone out there in blogland reads my posts any more so if you do visit me, please leave a comment so I know you're there!

Here's two cards I made using the Gorjuss papers - I just love these at the moment but this time, decided to use a CC Design image which has remained uninked up until now.  She is called Ice Cream Beatrice and is coloured with Promarkers.  Used some dies from MFT, La La Land Crafts and Fiskars together with some SU ribbon and remainder from my stash.

Simply Gorjuss!

Popped out with my Sister at the weekend to Hobbycraft to get some bits and pieces to make a scrapbook for Sam's London trip and ended up buying some of the new Gorjuss products from DoCrafts which are obviously no good for the London scrapbook!


I'm loving the papers in this pack!  Used a separate mini decoupage kit and then just added a couple of bits from my stash and voila...finished!  Might just have to pop up the Range and get a few more of these packs!

New Beginnings

Here's a card I made for one of my crafter friends who's recently moved house...think this stamp is the only one I ever use when making this type of card!


The stamp is Whipper snapper and think the papers are MME, used with some mirricard. Sentiment is Papertrey Ink from the Just Hatched set.
