1st Valantines Card

Hi All,

Well what a strange weekend, but anyway I have made my first Valentines card because both my Mum and Sister in Law have got me lots of orders so it's full steam ahead with these.

This is one of the new Kenny K dowloads and I just love it. I purchased this one and the little angel & devil, so cute!

I have kept things very simple with this being for a man and I love it. I also like the blue & brown colour combo for a change instead of the typical red.

Right, I am off to colour some more images and I have even been to my local craft shop this morning for more supplies for my orders, but I am thinking of the new Maggies I can buy with my sales - lol!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, only a three day week for me this week and then I am off Thursday and Friday with my Mum.

Circle Card

I made this card for another order, but I am getting bored of doing the same old same old so I thought I would put my circle cutter to good use and make a circle card...................

Nothing too fancy, but I used my new Magnolia which was part of my Christmas box from my Auntie Chanelle and a few flowers. I don't usually do flowers but the card needed a little something more.

I am off to watch a bit of TV now and relax... 2 days off work!!!

Love Heart Tilda & my little friend....

I am back with another card. I learnt how to make this card at my weekly craft class at the Craft Box and I decided to come home and give it a go.

I used my new Tilda who I just love. These cards are actually really easy to make when you get going with them. I love learning how to do something different.

The lovely "My Friend" stamp was a gift from my lovely Auntie who is like a magpie for lovely crafty stash for us both. I have been to see her tonight and picked up another little maggie that she has got me!! She is so good.

Before I go here is a little pic of my neice who is waiting for me to paint her nails. She was getting ready to go in the bath but before she did she needed to pick a nail varnish for me to use, bless here!

Love Letter Tilda

So far so good with my postings.......

Here is another card that I have made for a order.

Loving the new Magnolia collection, my favourite so far!

I ran out of my normal 8 x 8 cards so had to use one with a spotted pattern around the edge so I had to incorporate that into the design. I quite like it though.....

I used some paper I had left over from another card so I don't know the name of them - sorry!!!

I do hope this week goes quick as seen as I am off work on Friday!

Wild Thing Tilda

Evening everyone. I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. It just goes a little too quick for me. I have had a lazy today because I didn't get up while late which isn't me at all and then I have just been at my Mum & Dads with Martin with a dog walk in between.

My Nephew is also 4 on Friday so I have been hunting for a Spiderman Cake for him to take to Nursery on his birthday to share with his little buddies. We managed to find one at our local Asda. I have also promised to bake him some Cupcakes for his party with my new Cupcake Maker that I got for Christmas so that should be fun!!! I am hopeless at cooking, but I love it!

I made this card last night for a order, hence why it says "Daughter" on it. I thought I would ink up my new Wild Thing Tilda. She is so fun and I am really pleased with how my colouring turned out on this one.

I kept it plain and simple, but I think the image says it all - lol.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

A very late Happy New Year.......

Hello Peeps!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year. My new years resolution will be to update this little place more but we shall see!

I had a lovely Christmas but I was working in between so that wasn't so good. I must save my holidays to have a work free Christmas one of these days.

On the run up to Christmas I just find it soo difficult to work, make loads of cards and blog at the same time. I have kept dropping in on my favourite blogs, but blogger was also playing up and not letting me log on, but enough of that here is a card I made for my Cousin's birthday using my new Tilda and OMG this is my favourite of the new collection - I love it!!!

Here is a close up of the image and I am really pleased with this one even if I do say so myself.

Here is a card that I made for a very special person, but I have just not had the time to drop it off yet. She knows who she is and I will eventually be giving this to her, but the weather in Sheffield (wind & rain) has been terrible this week.

I am very happy to own this Limited Edition stamp and it was given to me by my Auntie for Christmas - along with some other craft goodies, but this was very special.
