Pearls and Gems

Another week, another challenge.

Over at Fab'n'Funky challenges we would like you to create a project using:

(or both)

I've created another masking-technique card. This is for a lovely lady who is retiring. It was quite difficult to decide what theme to use for her card. She loves travel, has a small interest in sewing (she's been working on a wee quilt since she was 19) and she loves flowers.
Every flower has a gem centre, because why not! The sentiment is another one of my "need to use stamp-sets, this is "FTLS-Blooming Sentiments" The flowers stamps are from Honey-Do Crafts.

Please pop over to Fab'n'Funky challenges and leave some love for our lovely design team

Back soon with more sharing

Sunny Summer

Hello again,

We are thinking summery thoughts over at Fab'n'Funky challenges.
Well you they say, cover up and seek shade, so I have masked up and multi toned for our lovely

"Sunny Summer"

I'm very much a flowery girl at heart

For this card I first stamped the sentiment, then created a mask with a sticky-note. Once the sentiment was masked I stamped the darkest coloured flowers (Plum), then the dark pink, and final the light pink. A few well placed leaves/foliage in two shades of green.
The sentiment - LOTV
Flowers - Cardio

I'm quite pleased because as I finished the card I noticed  my purple Campanula were flowering.

My fellow design team have some stunning cards to inspire you, so please pop over and leave them some sunny thoughts.

I'm still working on that beer mat bathrobe, but I'm hoping to share it with you the weekend after this one.

Back with more sharing soon

May your day be Furry and Bright

Hello again,

So this week over at Fab'n'Funky challenges we are thinking about


Yeah yeah, it's only June

June?!?! Already?!?

Where has the year gone?

Yes we would love to see your christmassy creations.
I am pleased to say this challenge has meant I have another stamp-set that has now been christened. I know I know, hanging my head in shame for the quantity of "For the Love of Stamps" stamp-sets waiting to be loved. But I reckon over the next month we can turn that around

But back to the important part..........Sharing
This is "Furry and Bright" set, the whole set is adorable but \I thought |I would just start with the deer and save the other cuddly creatures for another card. I used the masking technique to create the border (Cardio Majestic - Festive Fir Cones)

Our lovely design team always enjoy your creations and your feedback, so pop over and give them some love. Don't forget to enter.

Saving a friend in need

Well now, how many times have you accepted a job from someone you work with and then wonder what the heck you were thinking?

My lovely friend from work was asked if she could make a bathrobe out of Beer Mats. Yeah, beer mats! You know what's even worse than beer mats? A bag full of beer mats (40 of the blooming things) and only a few are the exact same size..........Yeah you heard me, beer mats are not a standard size...who knew!!

Yes, I agreed to help her create it, and why?
Because I'm slightly more insane than she is 😂

This is a small sample of all the mats. The 5 mats in the middle will make up the main back section.
As for the rest, I'm still deciding what should go where.

The chap who these belong to has been collecting them for years, and I am really trying to work out how to put it together whilst doing as little damage to them as possible.

Aaaw the joys of being nutty 😁

On the plus side my friend and I had a lovely morning chatting and creating together.

So as well as my daughters cosplay costume, I will be making a bathrobe.
But you will definitely get to see the robe before the tutu.

More sharing to follow shortly
