Left overs

I love my papermaina signature range papers and when there are little bits left over I just cant bear to throw them away.  So today I made a card using the odd bits that normally go into my daughters craft box, not this time!!!!

I have used a gorgeous image, its a gorgeous Tilda that was sent to me by the lovely Cheryl, it only arrived yesterday and I just had to use it straight away, its been a long time since I have used a tilda image and they are so wonderful to work with! 

The Papers are Paper mania, image coloured with water colour pencils, pro markers and gel pen to do faux stitching detail, polymer flowers, pearl beads from my stash.

She is with out a sentiment at the moment as I do not know what she will be used for as there are many options.  I hope you like her as much as I do.

Have a lovely crafty weekend!!!

Spring Westie for 2 challenges.

Here is my latest card, I am working on another but I cant get it to go right so I thought I would take a break and show you this one and then maybe my brain may work and I will be able to finish the other!  Here is my Spring Westie.

This Stamp is a little claires stamp and I love it, I don't get to use it a lot so when 2 challenges came along that involved animals I thought this was my chance.

I have used some papers from the dasiy and dandelion range, they are from last year, they have dasisys all over them as you can see.  The ribbon is new and has daisys on too.  I have coloured with Pro markers and water colour pencils.  Gems and flowers are from my stash.

I am going to enter this card into:
THE CRAFTY PAD challenge 54 - Animals
 PAPERPLAY challenges - week 2 - furry friends

Thanks for popping by, and thank you for your comments.

Think I am finally getting there

Well there is still lots going on in the Dazie house hold but I think I am managing to get back on top of things and my crafting Mojo is a go again, whoop whoop!  I have so many thank you's yet to do for the lovely christmas cards I recieved.  I didnt manage to get any sent out to my crafting friends and I am so sorry I PROMISE to make up for it, I am slowly working my way through a very long list of wonderful people!!!!

Last year we spent a lot of time going to lots of meetings about my son which has been very hard,  we are finally getting to the point where we may get some long awaited answers!  We are just hoping and praying that the next meeting that is coming up will not be the start to another year of sitting answering questions but to a year of getting the help we all need.

Any way I just want to say thank you to everyone who has kindly sent me goodies in the post and for the fabulous swaps that I have received! 

Catch you all next week with some more makes hopefully!!!

Some thing For Meeee

Well this snow has definetly got my mojo going and I am loving it, the crafting not the snow might I add!!!  We had heavy snow last night and there was trouble on the roads again! 

Any way Tales From Pollycraft have a fabulous freebie this week, well they have fabulous freebies all the time!!!  But this weeks I really love!  Its cherrie kisses frame - Adore there are some more gorgeous digi stamps in the cherrie kisses frame range on the pollycraft website   .  Here is my little altered note book

The note book, ribbon buttons and gems are from my stash.  The image is Pollycrafts flower is prima. I have used water colour pencils and a little tiny bit of gel pen.  I have sewn the buttons on to the bookmark ribbon that I have threaded through the spine of the note book and I have sewn them to the flower.

Hope you like it!

Time Tag

This month over on JJ Forum Susan has set us the challenge to make some thing with the theme based around this quote  "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date" examples are Alice in Wonderlands white rabbit, clocks, watches, sundials anything time related.  Here is my take on the theme.

I used lots of different clocks that I have found in various places and a printable that I bought from Caroles crafts.  The paper is the signature range from papermania, and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for popping by!

Another Tag

Well going with the theme of all wrapped up over on JJ's Forum I managed to do 2 tags previously shown but decided to do another one which I am going to enter into the magical crafts challenge (Thanks Susan).  Here it is,

The theme is Vintage.  The image is from some where but I cant remember as it was a the bottom of one of my stash drawers!  The stamp was sent to be by the lovely Cheryl flower papers and all other bits and bobs are from my stash.

Byeee for now!

Creative Inspiriations - anniversary card

Here is my entry for the creative inspriations challenge blog, the theme for this week is make a anniversary card.  I tried lots of lovey dovey images and ways of doing things and couldn't get them to work the way I wanted.  Then I remembered a lovely Verse that was sent to me By Lisa over at Allissa's Design Cabin and I think its just perfect for a anniversary card.

I have kept it very simple, flowers are paper mania, buttons from caroles crafts, papers are paper mania ribbon is from my stash and the verse is from lisa.   I have used my little xcut thingymebob to do all the shapes. I have also used chalks around all the edges.

Thanks for popping by!

snow trouble!

This weather has me all in a pickle, I have been working on a few little things but with the schools being shut then open, but too dangerous for us to venture out, it seems the kids Christmas holiday is dragging on and on.  At the moment I have my eldest at home, he finished his home work in quick time so he could get on the wii so I have managed to get some craft time to myself.

We are forcast more heavy snow, which is nice for some but I am fed up with it all now!  Its the ice that bothers me the most as its so unsafe.

Any how I shall return to show you my latest makes this week.

Stay safe everyone!

Here At Last

Here at last are some makes from this week the pics arent great as 1. the light is still terrible here and 2. I think hubby has been fiddling with the camera for his 'snow' pics!

Anyway here we go with the first its a thank you card.  I have made it using a gift bag that I have chopped up.  It had lots of lovely giesha girls on so I thought I am going to use that!  I have used backing paper from dove craft I think, I know I have had it for ages and never used it but I think it goes so well with these little ladies!

The flowers are from my stash prima ones I believe, pearls from some little boxes of goodies I bought at caroles crafts and the skeleton leaf is one from hobby craft.  Ribbon and any thing else is from my stash.
This is a tag I made using the same bag, its for a forum swap called All Wrapped up, as I have used a gift bag instead of wrapping paper (which all went in to the recycling bin )  I thought it would work just as well.  I decoupaged the geisha girl and have used the same papers as before but the flowers are paper mania as are the gems and I have added colour to the edges with Tim Holtz ink.  Ribbon is from my stash.
This is the last tag for today, I may use it in the Wrapped Up theme as I have used a ribbon from pressies and wrapped it around the tag also the lady in the picture is wrapped or should I say swathed in fabric, and the ribbon is from a gift box that had it wrapped it around.  The paper is a scrap piece from my stash as are the little flowers.

I do have one more card I want to share, I wasnt going to show it as it needs to be sent and recieved but I think that may well be some time what with all this snow!  So finally here is the last of this weeks makes.

I have pretty much used all the same things from my stash as I have already mentioned, the quote is from a blog that I cant remember right now, will have to show it to you all another day as it is so fab and has all these fabulous qoutes to print off.

So there we go this weeks makes all finally up on my blog!!!!  I have already started on some more makes, which is unusal for me as the old mojo is still returning.

Anyway all thanks for popping by its lovely to read your comments!  Take care in this wintery weather where ever you are!!

Thursday, 7 January 2010

Our 3 in the front garden, snow angels and snow man building, Pinky too having fun!
My beautiful little lady PINKY who was 3 on Monday, she absolutely adored the snow and wanted to play in it every time the door was opened!  Her little paws were covered in snow lol

Will hopefully be back to finally show you a couple of cards and some tags that I have made for a forum swap. 

Bye for now keep safe all that have snow!
