Hi all...sorry I haven't been around much....I have been busy with a new addition...

Meet Bailey...he is a Cockerpoo... totally adorable. ..and totally time consuming...its like having a baby in the house...nothing is getting done let alone card making.  Ollie is a little unsure of him so I having to share time between the two of them until Ollie gets the idea of a little playmate...also this little darling is not getting the idea between night and day and I have seen very many small hours of the day he's getting better although he thinks 3am is time to have a game.  He just had his first Jab and is being quite good in the house training dept  its been fun taking him out in the garden in my pj's in the small not!!!

I will post better pics soon.

A Few to Share...

Happy Monday!!!....just a quick post to share some cards I have made using some of the fab new releases from Clearly Besotted Stamps....

Two made using the gorgeous 'Dandelion Dreams'

A sweet Baby card using the 'Special Delivery' set
and here's one I made with a new MFT die I got this week from Die to Die For

Just plain and simple with a few clear sequins and gems I thought it would be great for a Wedding card.
Ok..I'm off to crochet 'chicks' for Twiggy Trees....
Have a lovely day

Sweet Pea...

Hi Guys....well its been a busy old week here in my craft room...I have been beavering away making cards for the craft fair next week...I just hope that I have done enough and my cards are tempting enough for people to part with their pennies ...Its a new Craft Fair so I really don't know how its going to go down...anyway...
I also have had lots of parcels delivered this week...a back order from SSS...I've been waiting since before Christmas for that...lots from Dies to Die for...and I was lucky enough to grab some of Stephanie's Clearly Besotted Stamps new releases...oh my...I have to say these are fab..I wanted them all but have just place a big order from Stampin' Up so had to show a little
I have used the Garden Fresh set for this weeks Less is More Challenge..its one layer with Anything I chose this .....

A simple little pea pod that I stamped with a couple of shades of green...used the sentiment from the set....and simple border from a Uniko Studio set - Round in Circles, finished with a couple of nailheads.
I spent all day yesterday playing with the new releases and I will share the results tomorrow.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Somewhere Over the Rainbow.....

Hi...yes I've been singing that since I saw that this weeks Challenge over at Less is More is 'Rainbow'.  They are also celebrating their third birthday....well congratulations ladies  and I hope your wonderful challenge will continue for another glorious 3 years!!
I also have to thank them for showcasing my Baby card...its such a thrill to be chosen. is my card for this weeks challenge

I used a MFT stamp set Abstract Art for this and stamped the rainbow using Memento Dew Drops.  Then used a SSS die and cut three and mounted them on top of each other to give a bit of depth and then used the cute teeny sequin stamps from a Mama Elephant stamp set to add a few embellies as well as a couple of  'nailheads'.
Thank you for stopping by.  I hope to be back tomorrow with some to share.
Happy Crafting
