I'm like a little girl at christmas today because my new stamps have arrived from Liliofthevalley, i've had them on pre-order for a few weeks so the tension has been building LOL
i couldn't wait to get them ink'd up and coloured in. I've used promarkers again on this one.
the papers are papermania Regency and a couple of plain sheets from the papermill. woodware punches made the flowers and leaves and my new adorableMartha Stewart doily punch made the paper lacey. i finished it off with a couple of gems.
so this is my first new stamp....3 more to go so watch this space! lol
well it is time to pass on my award and after a lot of thought i decided to pass it on to Glenda because she has been a good friend to me and i know she is just one 'click' away. Glenda has just started her blog too and we are trying to work it out together. Kim always comes to the rescue of course. lol So Glenda...Thank you for being a friend.
My other friend Patricia doesn't have a blog so i can't pass this award on to her but i would like to thank her too. Pat, where would i be without you? You make me laugh every single day without fail. thank you for being my crafty friend. suzanne x
I must say a huge thank you to Kim for giving me this lovely award. I'm honoured to be in your circle of friends Kim and i will pass it on with pride. Please check out kims blogs and shop, she has some gorgeous digi stamps and lovely charms at excellent prices. Most of the charms used on my cards come from Kim's shop.
Thank you again Kim, i need to give this some thought before passing it on. watch this space!
My mum will be 79 this month and i didn't want to make her a card that was too cutie but i did still want pretty, so this is what i came up with, i do hope it's ok.
I used the side step design which is easier than it looks.
the papers are My Minds Eye, yes again! lol
the vellum butterflies were punched with a x-cut dimentions punch and i added a beautiful sparkly bindi. i bought these on that auction site, they came in a plastic container with 20 tiny pots inside, perfect for all my gems and brads etc, i've ended up buying 3 so far. lol
back to the card...
I used the birthday embossing folder from cuttlebug and the beautiful swirls were sent to me by a friend over on DoCrafts.
the letters were cut using Broadway Melody sizzix alphabet dies.
hello, i am suzanne, a craft addict!
i started making cards in july 08 and thanks to docrafts and all the lovely members i have learnt so much and made some lovely friends. Then DC went and made a ridiculous change to their site and spoilt everything for us. Many the DC members (over 300) of us now meet on facebook instead under the group name DC Refugees. (shame on you DoCrafts)!
I hope you find something you like here on my blog. please feel free to ask if you want to know anything about any of my projects and I would really appreciate it if you found the time to leave me some love in the comments box.
hell I could do with some love right now!
