CAS in white and blue

 Here is another CAS card I made using the Stampin up Butterfly stamp and punch. I have also used the fab Cheery Lynn frond die too.I LOVE this die! I have cut the card blank ( using my Grand Calibur) at a funky angle for a change.
Tip:  Save all your scraps of card stock and paper and cut out leaves, branches etc using your dies and punches and store them in a box to use at a later date. The can make great "fillers" on your cards.

Speak to you soon and Thank you for taking the time to visit

Follow the butterfly

 Here is a CAS card I recently made. I love these scalloped edged cards as they make the finished card look so pretty. The fronds are Lavinia stamps and the butterfly is a Stampin up stamp and matching punch. . The butterfly trail is made from small clear gemstones.

I think this card can be used for a number of ocassions

have a great day

Blue beaded hair comb

Blue and pearl hand wrapped hair comb - £4.50 + p.p

I hope this scheduled post works as I am away on holiday.
This is a gorgeous hair comb. The photo doesn't do it any justice. All the beads are hand wrapped onto the comb. A great way to dress up an outfit.

I will be making different coloured hair combs soon as well as Bridal ones

Totally Gorjuss DT card - Cute and cuddly

today at Totally Gorjuss our theme is Cute and Cuddly and we want to see an animal on your card. Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp.

Now rhino's are not known for being the most cuddly of animals but I think this from Magnolia stamps is just soooo cute. I have made a Congratulations easel card for a baby boy. The backing card stock I used was part of a gift I received from one of my lovely ladies, Maggie, after she had a visit to a craft store up north.

We hope you will join in

CAS card

Hi all
I have been busy in Tiara making mode so cards have gone by the wayside a bit. But here is one I made recently. A CAS card. The stamp is a Clarity stamp and I used a Brown Adirondack ink. I punched 3 flowers from a scrap of Textured card I had, and added 3 Poundland gems in the middle of each. A very quick and easy card.

have a lovely day and thank you for visiting

Candy last!..................and 2 cards

 Well I am sorry it has taken me so long to announce my wedding candy winner.
Life has been hectic with the wedding. We took them to the airport yesterdayat  an unearthly hour to go on their Honeymoon.

Also it was our 29th Wedding Annivesary yesterday and we have been out on family meals to celebrate.
Unfortunately Dan is still quite ill and missed one of the meals. He hasn't eaten for over a week. He tried the meal we went on yesterday because by saturday he felt improved. Within a very short time he was ill again, shivering, feeling sick and generally unwell. He may be 20 and nearly 6 foot but he is still my poorly little baby!

I have made a lot of jewellery and this morning made a Tiara. I will post pics later this week.
Here are 2  comissioned cards. But because I was not around the people sourced cards from elsewhere. So if anyone is after a 25th Silver wedding Anniversary card. I have 2 for sale!. Just email me.

So for the Wedding candy winner
Thank you so much to those of you who entered. I only had 8 entries but I loved the stories you told. They were touching and amusing. It has been soooooooo hard to choose a winner. You are all winners in my heart. But I have to choose one and it is.....................................................Coops

Congrats Nic. If you could email me I will send the stamp out to you

Hugs to everyone
