Mr & Mrs ...

Today I have a card complete with matching box that I have made for my MIL who is due to be married tomorrow, I wanted something really special and I know she will treasure it so I decided to go with paper aida and cross stitch in the colours of the wedding, cream & pale pink.  It has taken me countless hours to plan & stitch but I am really pleased with the result.
I have used Rymans cardstock and Anitas card blank, the backing paper is from Pink Petticoat (little fleurs).  Cream linen card from my stash, flowers & ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts and the branch is a Martha Stewart punch.  The pearls and beads are from also my my stash which I have wired together.  Finished with Tim Holtz distress ink, Antique Linen.  As before I have made the aida on the computer and hand punched the holes and then stitched.
Thanks so much for dropping by and any comments you wish to leave.
Fingers crossed for the weather and the wedding?
Love Jane x

Craft Goodies ...

Today I have received a lovely parcel full of Papermania goodies which I won when I came second in the Papermania category of the National Cardmaker of the Year 2010.
Pic isn't too good as it has been rather dark today (sky full of snow)! but I hope you can see that I have brads, eyelets, flowers, gems, buttons, paper, glitter, cardstock, ribbon and embellishments in three different colour ways along with some templates, punches, card blanks and some lovely metallic markers.
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my achievement, it really means alot.
Take care, Jane x

Merry Christmas fellow bloggers ....

Sorry I have been away for some weeks, I have been busy catching up on making the Christmas cards.  Pretty much done now apart from the three most important people in my life, hubby, son & daughter;
so no pressure!
The card I have for you today started out just playing with the image and putting a nose on Tilda, I was rather pleased with the way she looked so I finished a card with her, hope you like her too.
Onto the ingredients - backing paper is from Polka Doodles 'Sundae of Seasons'
edged using Tim Holtz distress inks.  Adorable Tilda coloured using Promarkers.  Sentiments from LOTV and the Adorables range.  Martha Stewart snowflake punch, glittered using crystal Stickles.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Bells, heart, beads and red nose from my stash.
Thanks for dropping by and any comments you wish to leave, off to blog hop now, take care everyone
