First card for a wee wee while

Good afternoon anyone. Finally managed to take a photo of one card and hopefully it looks ok. Thanks for looking.

Hi anyone. It's been so long since I visited here as I gave up cardmaking due to lack of enthusiasm so all my stash has been mouldering in the loft and various other dark and dingy corners of my house. However, around Christmas time I felt the urge to start again and made some small cards for work friends and since then I have been visiting blogs, web sites and just generally catching up on trends and all the new stuff that has appeared. I did treat myself to a few new stamps and have made a couple of cards so far. I think I just want to craft when I feel like it so that's what I'll do.

All I need now is to work out how to get the photos on here once again ~ always a trial to someone as technologically dense as myself! Well bye for now and hopefully I'll get something on here eventually.

Two more as before.

Good evening - just popping these 2 on but promise they will be the last. I need to make a few more and then a few special ones if I can pull myself together enough crafty wise!

Thanks for visiting.

Finally a few Christmas cards!

Hello folks - golly it's been ages since I last posted anything but I've at last managed to make a few cards for friends at work. I saw this new download from Pink Petticoat which is called Have an Ice Christmas and I thought it looked so cute and just what I needed. These are only small 4x4" cards and as you can see they are as simple as I am! Images coloured with Promarkers, cuttlebugged backgrounds and a bit of sparkle. No need to worry about the sentiment as they are already there if you want them.

Apologies for the duff photos but they were taken under my desk lamp as it gets dark so early now. Thanks so much for visiting.

Little Boxes........da de da - you know the song!

Afternoon - my day off and it's peeing with rain but I don't care. I'm in the warm and doing a bit of crafting for a change. Haven't felt like making anything lately but I got down and made the polar bear triangle box today - the Christmas tree one I made a while ago. The blue one is larger as I can't imagine what you could put in the teeny one apart from jewellery or in my case about 3 chocolates! The larger one gives more scope for trinkets.

Paper and stamps on both are by Imaginisce. The little Snag'em stamps are such good value at about £1 each. On the first one I embossed the tree in gold then just put some dots of red and green Stickles for decoration. The blue one is coloured with Promarkers with some glitter on his scarf and round the edge I've decorated with Diamond Dust which is glass glitter (you can't see it all that well if at all).

Thanks for visiting.

Diddy Notecards and Box

I'm always short of a little notecard when I need one so thought I'd make a few teeny ones and a little box to keep them in. These are 3x3 and I did start off with 8 but ended up with 6! Just very simple - some are embossed with various CB folders, others are textured card and one I just put some patterned paper on cos I felt like it! Elzybells stamps used for everything. The box lid just slips behind the flower and stays put nicely. Oh the patterned paper on the box is SU.

Many thanks to my friend Mandy who very kindly sent me some diddy envies so I didn't have to muck about making them. Much appreciated.

Thanks for visiting.

Digital Tuesday Challenge card

Afternoon to you. We have lovely sun but it's a tad chilly in the shade - all in all it's been a great week to be on holiday. I bought a few of the new cute images from CC Designs - you can purchase them here - and couldn't resist this one although I don't make Halloween cards normally. The Challenge from Digital Tuesday this week is 'All about the kids' so I think he fits the bill perfectly.

Kept it as simple as me! - black card which has been embossed down the side but doesn't show up. Image is coloured with PMs, spiders were a wide ribbon I had so cut out 2 circles and stuck them on and the Boo is cut from an old Sizzlets alpha set I have.

Thanks for visiting.
