My New Hobby

This is my first attempt at jewellery making.  I bought myself some beads, wire and a gizmo and created this necklace and earrings.  I have also booked to go to a class in February so should be able to improve after that.

I am entering this into the challenge at Beading Friends Forever

New Baby Card

Here we are almost half way through January, how fast the time goes, and we have another lovely sunny day.

For my card today I have used one of the Bebunni stamps from Crafter's Companion.

I have coloured with Spectrum Noir, the backing paper is from a Stampin' Up pad, the sentiment also comes with the stamp set.

Christmas is coming !!!

I thought it would be a good idea to keep up with my Christmas card making to save a rush at the end of the year.  This is my first one for 2014.

This is James the bear from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers.  I have embossed the background with a 6x6 holly folder from Crafter's Companion, then added die cut flowers and leaves.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all. I hope my life is going to be more settled this year and I will be able to get more craft time.

For my card today I have used a digi image from Aurora Wings, there are some beautiful images in her shop.  This one is called Girl with Pansies.

I have used Spectrum Noir for colouring, the background paper was printed from a Joanna Sheen cd.
