Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree

This is a lovely stamp set and there is so much that you can do with it. Today I have been playing with a valentine card idea using the ground stamp which reminds me of the gorgeous grunge set. I tried to do some primary colours of red yellow blue and green and the finished them off with a few punched hearts.

Really pleased with the way it came out. All my cards are for sale so please drop me an email if there is anything you see that you would like

Stampin' Up! Baby we've grown

Well it is my youngest granddaughters birthday and she is one.  How time flies, it seems like only yesterday that we were all welcoming her into the world.

So here is the card to celebrate her special day

Love this stamp set as it is good for girls & boys and for new born as well as for little birthdays.  There is also a lovely bunny in this stamp set which I will use for some of my Easter cards later in the year.

Thanks for dropping by as always 😃

Spirit animal totem

This is a beautifully crafted totem with my own personal spirit animals, the hare, owl and mouse.
It is a small totem which is perfect to be displayed in the home. Larger totems can be made for the garden and are especially fun if you are having a tree taken down to leave some of the trunk for a totem.

As always just get in touch if you would like one for your own home

Happy New Year

Well what a fantastic Christmas break that was. I was overwhelmed with the wonderful gifts that I was given, one being this amazing iPad from my son which I am trying out for the first time on my blog. 

I have had a little break from my blog only really because life got in the way and the run up to Christmas was very busy at work and at home. So now it is the 1st January 2015 and the new year has begun I though I would put a post up and start posting my crafty bits.

My bestest girlfriend Lauren bought me some amazing stamp sets for my birthday 2nd & Christmas and I am just starting to play with them.

They are beautiful victorianna stamps so I though I would have a little mix and match with a sentiment set also from her. Great fun and although I am more of a fairy person there is something special about Angels too.

So a happy new year to everyone and let's hope that 2015 will be good for everyone.
