Something for Easter At Last!

It's been a funny old day today - I crammed two months of college work into two nights on Thursday and Friday evenings in preparation for my exam this morning, only to receive a phone call to tell me it had been cancelled because they hadn't prepared all the paperwork! So despite having plenty on my "to do" list, it left me at a loose end. I forced myself to go to Asda and get the week's shopping and then thought 'blow the housework' and decided to do some crafting. Came up with these little Easter bags. I needed something for Sam's two Teachers and a couple of friends of mine and these fitted the bill. I did actually make some similar to this last Easter, the instructions are on the Scor-pal site - they are so quick and easy which is what I like!

I used Elzybells stamp and two sentiment stamps from Papertrey Ink. Images are coloured with Promarkers. Card and paper are from my scrap box as is the ribbon and flowers and brads are from my stash...a real mish-mash! Sorry the photos are all in a line but for some reason, I'm having trouble trying to move them about!

Hope you all have a great weekend.

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.
