Hi my name is Heather I have been making my own cards for about 5yrs now mainly for family and friends but have since progressed into taking orders. I have 2 grown up children both left home now I love watching create and craft for inspiration I also make my own jewellery and bag charms and knit albeit not very well lol I am willing to give almost anything a try x even though ive been on here for a couple of years now im still not very good at the technical stuff so if things disappear dont be surprised lol x

hello and sorry .....

Im so bad at updating my blog when im on here im so busy reading everyone elses I forget to do mine and then get carried away with crafting after being inspired by everyones works I really am going to try and post more often.
I went sale shopping yesterday with friends and have most of my bits for next xmas lol LOVE LOVE LOVE the boots sale lol also treated myself to some perfume (half price just had todo it lol) both Cerrutti 1881 perfume and Eternity gift set for £32.50 bargain x

I have decided I am going to try to make at least 2 xmas cards a week so that im not in as much of a rush with my own cards like I was this year even down to making my sons card christmas day morning lol good job he was staying at his girlfriends lol had to do 4 cards altogether before 1pm as was being picked up to go to friends for the rest of the day lol.
Going to treat myself to the A3 cutting mat from the range as soon as they have them back in stock and saving for a Big shot or similar next year any help on which to go for would be much appreciated from those of you out there that already have them xxx
Right better get off here and get some work(crafting maybe as well ) done xxx
Happy New Year to all xxx

tea light card

 Here is my alternate version of the tealight card made for a birthday card with a miniature of Baileys and some Ferrero Rocher instead of candles using Me to You teddy (as the person it was for and the one sending it always send me to you cards to each other)
I used my ultimate to score box and card and just made the box deeper than you would for the candles I would have to get another bottle to do the measurements tho as I didnt write them down(silly of me I know but what can I say)

well off to create a 50th birthday card now xxx hope you like my card x

CC Challenge 17 Pink and Green

challenge 17 Pink and Green

 I used Tatty Teddy as its for my friend who loves him but he was printed on CC light printable card and I have used Collall glue gel from CC as well (hope this qualifies me for 2 entries lol) not sure it shows properly but the coat is a pale mint green and the paper inside the card has green in it and the square mat behind tatty is green also.

world card making day

 Well as it was world card making day yesterday when I got home from work I decided to use myHumphrey  freebies from creative cardmaking.I am going to enter the challenge on Crafters Companion with these lol hope you all like them.

Here are just 4 of the finished cards.I used some cardstock and glittercard from my stash and a calender on the easel card with a greeting I think is from a papermania sheet and a gem from  my collection. All the papers are from the freebies. I am going to finish the others later enough left for at least another 8 maybe more
I also did some Me to You cards which I will add to my blog later as they dont qualify for the challenge on Crafters Companion

Spent a lovely day on Sunday at a demo with Shiela Halliwell from Docrafts at the Range near me was a great day and picked up a few tips and made some new crafty friends like Raye and Ann-Marie.
