Thank YouGood Afternoon All

Gotta go to work in a wee while, so this will probably be a bit of a quickie.

I’ve followed the current Mojo Monday challenge as usual, it’s tall and skinny this week, so a standard DL card base.

I started with the sentiment, which is a topper from the Tatty Ted kit that I spoke about last week – trying to use up various bits and pieces that get put into a pot for later 🙂

Bet we’ve all got them!

So I decided to go with just white and silver.  The background has been embossed with an Argyle pattern, which I think is a Darice Embossing Folder, the swirl is one of the new Sue Wilson dies and the flower has been made with a white patterned vellum using a punch and I’ve just shaped the petals slightly and added a card candi to the centre.

Clean and simple 🙂

Anyway, must dash, but I’ll be back again soon

Tatty Ted BannersGood Morning All,

Well yet another mad month for me, so a major lack of card making 😦

However, I have been off this week, and have been determined to at least try and spend some time in my craft room and I finally succeeded on Tuesday evening 🙂

It’s a 5×7 card and the layout is based on this weeks Mojo Monday challenge.  The topper is one I had from  a Tatty Ted kit from ages ago, and was already decoupaged and embellished, so all I’ve had to do is the matting and layering, a little bit of embossing, some die cutting and ribbon tying!!!!

Not too bad, bearing in mind it was quite late at night and I was very hot and bothered.

Anyhow, off to the hairdressers now, so need to dash, but I will try and be back again soon

Best WishesGood Evening All

A pretty pink card for you today using one of my many Tatty Ted toppers.  I’ve used the current Mojo Monday layout on an A5 card.  The papers are some really old ones from my stash and these have been matted and layered onto white card.  I’ve faux stitched round the sections with a white gelly roll pen and added some white ribbon and pink gems to finish it off.

I’m not stopping long as I’m still feeling rather poorly and hopefully my dinner will be cooked in a mo 🙂

But I shall be back again soon

Good Evening All

Well the week hasn’t improved much – I still don’t have a car, my Dad is poorly and work has been hard going.  Still, such is life!

So, I thought I would produce a nice bright card this week, and try to cheer things up a little 🙂

I’ve used a cream A5 card and the Mojo Monday layout for this week.  The papers are from Papermania and the lovely mustard coloured card is from Stampin Up, both of which seemed to tie in quite nicely with the flower that Tatty Ted is holding.  I’ve added some faux stitching around two of the layers with a sparkly gel pen and the letters have been cut with my Cricut using the gypsy font.  The huge big button is from Stampin Up and I’ve added a double bow made from some sparkly ribbon from my stash.  It certainly is a brightly coloured card!

Anyway, I know it’s short and sweet but I’ve had a long day and I really need to go to my bed.

Thank you to everyone who stops by and has a look at my musings.

Back again soon





Triple Easel Card 23/05/2012

Good Evening All

This will be a quick post this evening, as I’m absolutely shattered – it’s been a long day!

I was asked by my friend Sonia, to test her instructions for a triple easel card, the attached photo is the result.  The photo isn’t brilliant for some reason, but I can guarantee that Sonia’s tutorial instructions are and they can be obtained via her website – Sonia’s Crafty Patch.

I used a different die to Sonia, but the process and the result is exactly that same.

Anyway I hope you like and if so, pop along and have a look 😀

That’s all for tonight, but I will be back again soon
