Wedding Bears....

Evening all,

Tonight I am sharing with you a card I made on Thursday :)

Friday we went to Jase's nephews wedding and although it was bitterly cold
and the evening saw us once again covered with the white snow it was a fabulous day!

The bride looked amazing and I have to say her dress was stunning :)

Anyway's on to the card I made for the happy couple...

I am loving the pearl flourishes and extremely happy with the flowers..
Here's a close up!

I just love my Grand Calibur and would be totally lost without it.. I added
pearls to the center of the flowers just to finish them off  :)

And finally here's a close up of those adorable bears...

Ingredients to make my card:

Wedding Bear Mega Kit - The Clipart Fairy
Pearls - Ebay
Pearl Flourishes - Want 2 Scrap
Lea'abilities Flower 002 - Ebay Seller 'Swincraft'

I highly recommend Swincraft, they provide an unbeatable service on PayPal and 
certainly my first stop when wanting new dies!

The challenges I would like to enter my card in to are:

Crafty Calendar Challenge - Something New (wedding = new beginning)
Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog - 3-2-1 (3 papers, 2 embellishments & 1 image)

is not a drop of the white stuff left insight!!

Just Balloons....

Evening all,

Tonight I have a couple of cards to show you from Colette...
Both cards are made using the same kit but the 2nd was a result of a little printing mishap
 and not wanting to waste the paper Colette put her thinking cap on :)

Colette has used the 'Just Balloons' card kit available HERE.

The kit contains everything you need to make a complete card including the choice of 
either a matching envelope or box!

Added extra's used:

Bakers Twine
Red Gingham Button - Meiflower

On to the second card....

All papers are from the same kit 'Just Balloons' but this time Colette
has chosen to add a flower!

Added extra's used:

Rose Creations Die - Spellbinders
Red Metallic Cord, Gingham Buttons & Gems - Meiflower

As you can see the kits can be very versatile and don't just have to be made as they come!
With a little imagination you can create something totally different :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Introducing Claire....


Please join me in welcoming....


to the Design Team :)

Hi my name is Claire, I am married with one daughter and have two furbabies (my cats)!

My poor husband often comes home to find my mess (cough cough) through the house and burnt dinners whilst my daughter often has to wait for Mum's taxi service so I can just add that last little gem!

The earliest crafting I can remember is making paper clothes for my poor Cindy doll. I started trying to make cards with cross stitch but it took too long so paper crafting took over. I love making cards and using all my different types of stamps, papers then mixing it up a little and seeing what I end up with. I am at my happiest when i'm covered with glitter and clue sat at my craft desk :o)

I look forward to bringing you some great inspiration and being apart of the Design Team!

Evening all,

I can not believe another week is almost over!!
Last week I decided 'A New Year A New Start' and embarked on a diet, I weighed myself already knowing I am overweight and off I started... I am using an app on my phone called 'My Fitness Pal' and after entering all my details it set me a goal of 1200 calories a day! Well I have stuck to it with just 2 days where I have gone slightly over, eating plenty of veg etc through the week and eating little but more often with healthy snacks.. The time came last night for my first weigh in and well....... I gained a 1lb!!! Not a happy bunny at all LOL

Anyway's with all that said I would like to share with you a card made by Colette..

Colette has used Sassy Cheryl's 'Special Stork Delivery - Girl' which you can find right HERE.
