Fancy a Magnolia?

Firstly, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the last six weeks. It's amazing, I really didn't think I would get so many hits when I started out. It really is appreciated.

Now to the blog candy......I've thought long and hard about this and decided to do something a little bit different. The reason being, I think even though we enjoy making cards, we're all so busy with birthdays, challenges, and everyday life, so I thought I'd make it simple.

I admit to being a bit(?) of a nosey old moo!! so what I would like you to do is send a link to a photo of your craft space. Don't worry how tidy(?)/untidy, small, big, whatever, your space is. Could be a room (I'd kill for one!), a corner of a room (like mine!), a dining room table. It doesn't matter, just add a comment with a link to your blog and if you haven't got a blog, then e-mail me a photo (my e-mail link is in my Profile).

Just to get you started, here's my space.




It's in my bedroom and seems quite tidy really when I'm not crafting, but look what happens when I start making things!



You see, my bed is directly behind me when I'm at my desk crafting so I tend to dump things on the bed when I'm looking for that certain little thing which will finish my card off perfectly!! I always have to make sure I tidy up when I've finished, otherwise I'd never get into bed at night!!

Thought you might like to see the stamp which is up for grabs.





I've already got one of these so have stamped an image so you can see it better.

This little competition is open to anyone, wherever you are, until 31 January when I will put all the names in a hat and get my two handsome Assistants (Lewis and Sam!) to pull out a winner.....hopefully without them fighting about it!!

Look forward to seeing your craft spaces and thanks once again for visiting.

Hi Jo, thanks for the fab idea of getting us all to show our craft space, unfortunately I'm a nosey moo too and had to go and look at everyones photos....God its depressing, most people seem to have their own space, but not me! Anyhow, I've decided to make it my soul mission to persuade my daughter that she needs to leave home lol then I too can have a craft room!!!!(evil laugh)

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...



...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.



Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
