Poor good Tilda gone bad she started of so sweet an angelic and ended up
very devilish ..... but still very cute.

Sixxiz ideas

My poor die cuts were sat on the shelf looking very neglected so I decided to

for a tea party.

Two challenges in one
Paper bag card and buttons.

Button/paper bag card challenge
The back view of the card.

I made a pull pocket for a really sweet letter Lily has

written to her which I'm sure she'll cherish for years to come.

I also decorated a brown paper lunch bag for the chocolates.

The chocolate box was my inspiration for the colours I used.

Hannah's flown the nest...

Wow where does time go????It's been a month since my last post (how bad am I?}
Well I have good reasons, Hannah,Chris and the twins finally moved into there own home
last week,they have flown the nest.....
It's sooo quiet here now and empty I have two other children but still very strange now they have gone ,they only moved 5 mins away so I will see plenty of them
Mornings are the wierdest not getting up and seeing there smiling faces even though I still have a full house I now understand the empty nest syndrome feeling ,bonus side I have much more time to craft now
Going to do some now so good-night to you allx

My First Challenge


Well here it is the first of many challenges I hope!

I have slightly moved the sketch around but still the same as the sketch.

I had loads of fun doing this one,thanks to the girls at

( just magnolia) for letting me join in.

Here's a look at the stamped images,which I them heat

embossed with chocolate brown,coloured with copic's

Colouring the image was a bit like the velvet art pictures,you

have the raised edges so you don't go out the lines.

The front of the envelope and inside of the card.

Layered up beautiful butterfly wings,

the top layer is vellum and the bottom white cardstock.

A final look at the finished card.
