Good News

Well where to start, had a very busy few weeks.  After spending a year and half out of work after spinal surgury I have now started working again as a chat moderator and I am loving it.  Working 4pm to midnight  5 days a week takes up a lot of my free time which i used to spend crafting.  Once I am settled into a nice routine I will be able to craft on and on and on.....

Below is a card i made for inspiration.

Ribbon & Lace Challenge over at THAT CRAFT PLACE

The decoupage I used  is one of many supplied by That Craft Place
I find it quite relaxing sat cutting out these wonder designs from the House of Zandra. 

The backing papers are form First Edition Boho Chic.   The accessories are all from That Craft Place

The corners and swirls were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo which is my baby. Wouldn't be without it now.  This can also be purchased form That Craft Place

Stop on by That Craft place Facebook page and have a look at the wonderful lace, ribbon and  accessories.

Well that's all for now i better go get ready for work.

Pop back soon and see what's new.

All Dressed Up 

Well it's that time again for our latest challenge over at That Craft Place

I don't often get my Promarkers out  but for this challenge i thought i would give it a go.

My Card

As with most of my cards I use the Silhouette Cameo  which i purchased from That Craft Place  last year and which i love.  The image is from All Dressed Up. I used Promarkers  to colour the image in  and also to colour the happy birthday and word niece.

The Cameo was used to  cut out the card blank, backing paper and the sentiment.  The papers were from First Edition's Summer Breeze which Ican be purchased from The Range .  That Craft Place  supplies a wide range of emblishments and ribbons  so why not have a lookround their online shop or visit Facebook  or even That Craft Place Chat and Natter where you will find lots of inspiration.

Good Luck and Pop back soon

Bit Pink!!!

Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by to view my latest card.  This card is for a friends Great Niece and she loves pink!

The card blank is cut out using the Silhouette Cameo which I purchased from That Craft Place last year and can honestly say it's the best thing ever.  All the shapes are cut out from the cameo including the rolled roses  which I love to make. 
The image is from  LOTV   Coloured Art Pad set 9.  
I have used  pan pastels to dust the edges of the card blank and the edges of the image. Pan pastels can also be purchased from That Craft Place along with a wide range of ribbon and lace.
