Special Day ...


Delighted to share this card with you today & as you can probably see my Husband & I have just celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary.  Very difficult to make male anniversary cards but I am really pleased with this one, phew!

It is an 8x8 matted & layered with white linen & silver mirri card.  Sentiment is computer generated in silver and the cutting file; Heart Inverted Rhinestones from the fabulous Samantha Walker from the Silhouette Design Store.

The rhinestones and as you can see there are many are from an Ebay Seller
I can recommend, good price, delivery & quality.  
Beautiful sparkle, stunning.

You're so tweet ...


Very clean and simple today, some more new stamps which I did & notice past tense there, well
I loved the images as soon as I set eyes on them but (in my opinion) they don't stamp very well.
They are clear stamps and I know all stamps have different needs but I have been stamping for too many years now and I was disappointed with these ones, not producing a crisp image, only my opinion.

This stamp set; at is includes a few different images is from Basik & K called 'Basik & Sparrows'
and I just wanted a quick thank you card.  Hand stitched, coloured with Promarkers & matted on red cardstock with a small pearl to finish.

little ones in!

Thanks ...


A little thank you card to share today, tried this technique, really simple but so effective.
I will definitely be creating some more of these!

I have mat & layer black & white card to make it pop, stamped using the Stampin Up Garden in Bloom stamps using TH Distress markers, ink the outlines in black and then finally cut out the sentiment using the gorgeous Lawn Fawn Scripty thanks die.  Some gorgeous ribbon and couple of little gems to finish.

That is all for me today, see you again soon, happy crafting.
