i love you

Hello. 'Tis the season of hearts and flowers! This isn't the card I will be giving to Mr BforB as it was lying on my desk when he came in to tell me tea was ready (I know - how lucky am I - he cooks).

The little Penny Black hedgie 'sweet surrender' was coloured with watercolour pencils. And have a wee look here. A two minute video of my colouring!

Shout Hooray - my first video for Craft Stash is here!!

Hello. You may recognise this card. I shared it here a little while back. Well now it has star (see what I did there) billing on You Tube! Yep, my first video for Craft Stash is now available here. Hopefully the first of many quick little tutorials. All comments, good, bad or indifferent are welcome - I think I still have a lot to learn when it comes to videos!! Oh, and any ideas for future videos are welcome too!

Grow Love

Hello. And another stamp fron Unity! This one is called 'Grow Love'. The papers are 'Viola' by Memory Box. The tree is a die but, in my quest to super organise my dies, I no longer have the packaging and have no idea of the makers name. The stamp has been coloured with watercolour pencils and fussy cut.

I am entering the challenge over at Creative Inspirations - hugs & kisses.

And, I was really chuffed to see that this card was top 3 in the last challenge. Thank you.

Hello. Can you tell I'm loving my Unity stamps? This one is from the January Kit (and my February kit will soon be winging it's way to me - yay). Once again I watercoloured the image. The papers are 'Beach House' by Craft Sensations.

And on a completely different note, I know I promised a video. Well, it's been a little delayed, but will be here soon!

Your wings exist

Hello. Sometimes a card comes together pretty easily and other times I have nearly every piece of patterned paper, stamp and embellishment out looking for the perfect match. Well, this was one of those easy times! And in 'card world' I don't even think it matters that the dandelion clocks are way out of proportion!

The stamp is 'your wings exist' from Unity. And the background is a stencil (sorry, no makers name and the packaging is long gone).

I'll be back tomorrow, I have a little video to share!

Magazine News

Hello. Thought I would let you all know about two fabby magazines that have just recently hit the shelves! They are a great crafty read choc full of gorgeous inspiration. Both have cool free gifts too. With Creative Stamping you get a huge 34 piece stamp set and Simply Cards and Papercraft has a free embossing folder and stamp set. 
Of course, I might be a wee bit biased. I have cards in both mags.

 The cardmakers challenge which was 'creative die cutting'.
 And in Creative Stamping a set of six creations using the free stamp set.

Go on, treat yourself!
