Happy Sunday.....

Can you beleive it's the last day of the Olympics!  I'm looking forward to the closing ceremony - Team GB have certainly done us all proud...........fantastic and well done to each and everyone of you.  Now we can have a little break before we welcome the Paralympic teams - Goooooooo Team GB!

And so begins Christmas......

Good evening - how well are our Team GB doing, fair play to them all they are doing a marvellous job and should be very proud of themselves.
Now the crafting stuff.....I managed to get to our Craft Club on Friday evening and even took along some card crafting to do (much to the shock of the other girls who know me - they where expecting jewellery lol).  I thought it was time to get on with some Christmas cards given that I have bought soooooooo much Hunkydory and Kanban sets over the last few of weeks!  So here are the 4 cards I managed to complete on Friday, which has given me the 'urge' to get on and do more, I thoroughly enjoyed making these which came as the 'freebie' with the latest Hunkydory magazine...well apart from the twisted easel card which was from one of the kits.

An a5 simple card

Another A5 for the owl lovers

How to make an 8x8 card with just 1 piece of A4 base card - just crease one end at the DL size and don't trim, them just decorate to suit :o)

This is the inside of the 8x8 card above

6" square twisted easel card using Hunkydory Christmas set.
I do hope you like these and that they inspire you to give it a go - Happy Crafting xx

OMG I've actually Blogged!

Good evening, have you all got Olympic fever yet or are you fed up already?  I thought the opening ceremony was a fantastic success and would like to say a big well done to all those who helped create and performed including all those volunteers!  So let's be proud of who we are and cheer on our very own Team GB - goooo Olympiads!  This is something we can all be very proud of and show the world that GB is a fantastic island and as strong today as ever!

For anyone who bothers to follow my little blog I must apologise for my lack of posts, I've had a sudden allergy to my laptop - I just couldn't bring myself to log on at home after spending all day at my work computer lol.....well, I've had a little play with both jewellery and card making and here is my recent work, I hope you like it xxx thanks for reading and may the craft be with you!!

I'm quite please with the way these have turned out - a friend asked me to make some Special Birthday Party invites and this is the result.

It's a Tribal thing....

Hi Everyone,

Here's my little make for tonight...I think it's pretty tribal like and is made using genuine Jasper.  Jasper comes in many varierties and here I have used Picture Jasper and Red Jasper, a little different to my usual (whatever that is lol) and felt a little out of my comfort zone, but I'm trying to broaden my horizons - what do you think?

A little mix.......

Well here we are, another weekend of rain to look forward to, so what a good excuse to play with all your crafty goodies, I really don't know where this year has gone and can't believe we're already halfway through June! 
As most of you know who follow my little bloggings, my card making has kind of taken a back seat since discovering I have a talent for jewellery making - well I'm pleased to say the urge to make cards is slowly starting to return and I now think I'll be able to happily juggle both :o)
Here is a last nights efforts, please let me know what you think, I love to read your comments.
