Warm & Toastie....

Hi....I've been sitting by the fire and doing a lot of crocheting lately...not in the mood again for making cards. I'm thinking of having a major sort out in my craft room soon as some of the stamps I have are a bit 'old hat' now and apart from a few new Tim Holtz products I haven't been tempted to buy anything new for a while. Its hard to keep up with all the new stuff coming out!!

This is my recent crochet make....


A pretty Cath Kidston colour inspired Hot Water Bottle cover. its now available in my Esty Shop (link on side bar) together with some hand dyed sock yarn. 

I'm currently finishing off a pretty baby blanket which should be in the shop in a few days.

Ok I'm off for a cup of tea and a toasted tea cake..yummmm

Happy Crafting

Its Been a Long Time Coming....

...and by that I mean finding my creating MoJo again...its been almost a year since I posted something.

All has been fine in my part of the world I just didn't seem to want to get inky....I have been crocheting and making 'pretties' for the odd craft fair but no cards.

Then after trawling around the crafty blogs I started to get itchy fingers again...just shows it never leaves us totally.  So I cleared up my craft room to get know my crafty stuff again and this is what I came up with.


I used a gorgeous stamp from StarTrish Design I coloured her with pencils and cut her out.  For the background I used distress inks, stencils etc., I adhered the image to the tag using a 3D pad and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle.  I made this with my niece in mind as she wants to have her hair coloured like this...so Sarah as the message says Be Brave..Make it Happen..xxxx

I am going to enter this for this months Craft Stamper magazine challenge 'Anything Goes'

Happy Crafting
