Spot The Difference!

Can you tell what the difference is? Apart from the fact that Coriander has been coloured differently, one is a normal card and the other is a paperbag card. I needed to send some images to a couple of friends so, while the Gas Engineer was checking my heating system out, I got on with crafting. Image is from CC Designs and coloured with Promarkers with Glamour Dust added to her wings. Papers are MME and c.s. is Bazzill. Flowers and brads are from my stash. Plenty of stitching and distressing! </

Eric cordially invites you....

Where has the weekend gone? We had a lovely time...decorating, walking on the beach and out for Sunday lunch but now it's back to normal. No work tomorrow but I have to stay in to wait for the Gas Engineer to come and check my heating. Was busy last week making some invitations for Sam's birthday party and here's what I came up with. I used Eric from TGF, coloured with Promarkers. Papers are mostly K & Co Hopscotch although a couple of others may have crept in! Sentiment and inside stamp are MFT and balloon stamp is a very old old in fact, I can't remember who made it! Added some string/raffia and plenty of stitching. And here's a couple of group shots!! Coffee time now I think, and then bed. Have a great week everyone.

Not so happy with this one

Another quick post...really must get round to visiting all those lovely blogs out there but have been busy decorating my dining room and there really aren't enough hours in the day! Not too sure about this creation...I had such big ideas for it and it's a bit bare and simple. Anyway, thought I'd put it on here as I haven't made any cards for a while and might not have another chance for a few days. The image is Hanglar and was a RAK ages ago, coloured with Promarkers with a Woodware sentiment. Still using the MME papers and added some Bazzill cardstock and blew the dust off my one and only Martha Stewart punch! Finally, added some ribbon and sticky gems from my stash. Off to iron the boys' uniform as they are back to school tomorrow after the Easter holiday and hopefully, we can get some normality back into this household!!

...and a Card with Stitching!

Managed to do some sewing but how long it lasts is beyond me! This was originally intended to be a birthday card but have used it for a get well card as someone I know has just had an operation and needed something pdq to give them. Found the image in my RAK box - Hanglar of course....ooh, I dream of owning some of these stamps! Coloured with Promarkers and papers are MME - same as before. Flowers are from my stash and brads are Doodlebug sugar coated. Finally added an East of India wooden heart which I've been hanging onto for years! Feeling a bit under the weather today so going for a sit down now...the rest of the ironing will have to wait!

A Card Without Stitching!

I was hoping that this card would have stitching on it....well that was the idea but unfortunately my sewing machine had other plans! Let's put it this way - it's out of action at the moment and that could possibly be permanently after I've thrown it out of the window! So here's the card I eventually put together without the use of my sewing machine! I've used the little cutie Daisy stamp, coloured with Promarkers and papers from MME Bloom and Grow. Sentiment is Woodware, ribbon and buttons are from my stash and string is from Leann - see, I am using it Leann!

A Recycled Cake Box!

Just popping by to show you something I made very quickly at the weekend. Had a small cake box at home from the supermarket which was remarkably clean so decided to do a quick decorating job on it and turn it into a gift box. I promise the ribbon was straight on's just my non-existent photographic skills which make it look bendy! Used the Whipper Snapper bunny image which I had already coloured and some scrap paper and ribbon and then added some pink shredded paper and scrummy chocolate to the inside! Hope you all had a Happy Easter!
