A quick post...

just before bed!

 I made these with the new Anna Griffin stamp set I purchased from QVC, it was a steal so had to get it.  Wanted it for so long!

I was inspired by Barbara Gray to make some ATC's with them which I then had to make into cards!  I haven't been back to my desk since as been so busy but have spent tonight designing 2 A4 cards which I will cut and make tomorrow night!  Pics of those will follow!

That was just 5 stamps out of  8 x A5 size sheets!

More to follow!

A twist on yesterday's card...

An alternative to the card I posted yesterday, glad I spent my Christmas donations on the bird cage die!  I wanted to add an orange button but I seem to have every colour but the one I want so keeping an eye out for an orange one!

Having a lovely family day before returning to normal tomorrow, so sad it's the end of the holidays!

Christmas goodies...

...and new year treats!

I had to order my own pressie's again this year but it meant I got what I wanted!  Spellbinders, tim holtz die, paper and a splodge matt and brayer. I have been playing around with all of it and made a few lovely cards,  this one I don't think I will give away. It will be kept as a template and made again!  

There have been a few sales on so bagged an Anna Griffin stamp set and a Hot Off The Press this space for movement cards...  I did make one using just scraps of paper after watching a demo on tv of it though and it was pretty easy even with no measurements...

I did however add a line on the top one which I didn't need and I also made the lines at the back to big but that is remedied by putting another sheet of paper over the back and just cutting a line rather than a section out, I should have paid more attention when watching the demo!!!  


New years resolutions?  Well to keep my desk more tidy so I can get to it when I want to use it rather than move everything off of it first! Lets see how long that one lasts!  Oh and to try and blog more of my cards!

Happy New Year all, hope you had a wonderful christmas and got time to fit in some crafting!
