Wow - time flies....

I've not been around here over the past week or so.... not because of anything exciting but because I have been poorly.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me get well messages on facebook or twitter - they have cheered me up!
I also wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who has taken the time to send my blog awards over the past few weeks - I have been blown away by the kindness of you all. I will accept them and do a proper post on them when I am feeling better. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all. You all inspire me every day!
Here are a few cards from my demos this loop that I wanted to share with you,

I'll be back soon with some more.
I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful sunshine.
Happy craftin'

Forever Friends, Spring Time - day 2

One of my favourite stamps from this set just has to be the bunting. I love it..... Here, I have coloured it with watercolour pencils - then I added anita's 3d gloss. This makes the colours pop from the bunting and it gives it a lovely shine.
I love love love 3d gloss - it's a must have for my stash....

All these Easter cards make me want a cream egg!!!
How do you eat yours....... lol

Forever Friends, Spring Time - day 1

Over the next 3 days I will share with you some of the samples that I made for the Create and Craft show that Dawn Bibby hosted last week.
I was working with the Forever Friends collection 'Spring Time'.
It's got paper, stickers, cards, ribbons, bows, alphabets and decoupage along with many more items.
It's a lovely collection that is brilliant for Easter cards as well as spring birthdays or weddings.....

What are you up to today?
Tomorrow I'll be on my way to the NEC.... woo hooooooo.....
I'll take lots of pictures to share with you.....

Capsule collection day 5

Here is my set for today.... I really have had fun making these.
I am lucky that I get to do a job that I love.

I am getting very excited about my upcoming visit to the NEC.... I've never been before and I have been working on some samples for the show (I will post them later on once they have been on the WOW stand at the show)....
I'm only going down for 2 days, I really wish I was there longer, but I have a demo on the Saturday in the very yummy Letham crafts store.... I love that shop!!! lol
Back with some more to show you later.
Have a very crafty day xxx

Capsule collection day 4

Take a teddy and a teacup and what do you get?
Well some of this......

I love the capsule collection. They are such a lovely group of papers that all go really well together.
And if you are looking for embellishments, well every collection has buttons, eyelets, ribbons, flowers and bows to name but a few...... and they all co-ordinate!!
As these show, they work with any decoupage or toppers that you will have in your stash too...
