Happy Easter

I don't really like wreaths, but I was inspired to make this from a wreath I saw last Easter.  We stayed in a small guest house in Downham Market for a few days, near Easter time, and the lady had several handcrafted items around the house.  She had a lovely Easter Egg wreath on the front door and I thought then that I would have to have a go at making one this year. 

 I just used polystyrene eggs with decopatch paper, a few little chicks and a bit of ribbon.  I quite like how it turned out.

Today's make:

I thought I'd make a card today......and it's not a box card. Yay!?! 

I found a Hunkydory kit, that I'd put away in a very safe place, and thought I would see what I could do with it.  I really love butterflies so any excuse to use them, in my crafting, is fine by me.  This particular kit was called 'fluttering pearl' and is printed on Centua pearl card ( another favourite of mine.). I also used a plain (green) sheet of Centura pearl, and a sheet of craft card.  The cut out border is one of my new Tattered Lace dies.  Hope you like it :)

Harry's 5th Birthday

Where does the time go.  My lovely Grandson is 5 already!?!  So here's the card I made.  I'm so into my box cards at the moment, I promise I will post something different next time.  I do have another card waiting, but it is for the Craftmania March challenge so it will have to wait a while, until my crafty friends have done theirs.

February Challenge

My friendly, local, craft shop, Craftmania, in Lowestoft,  run a monthly challenge and this is my entry for February.

We buy a kit for the very reasonable price of £5.99.  For this we get lots of goodies, papers ribbon, embellishments and usually a card blank.  Sometimes we get a 'brief' to work to, and other times we are left to go wherever our creative juices take us, within the confines of the kit.  We are allowed to use any other bits from our crafty stash, but I really like to just use the stuff in the kit.  This month, the only extra I added was a sheet of A4 craft card, and this is what I came up with......

Hope you like it :) xx
