Time to get back blogging again!

So, it's been a while...
I've decided that in 2020 I am back blogging.
I know that there are many social media sites that people use these days but I like blogging.
If nothing else it's a place to share the adventures that kris and I have been on or some of the dt work I have done.
So watch this space!

Creative Crafting World

Creating with Creative Crafting World papers and cds.
I've loved making these cards.
The sunflower collection is bright and cheery and will brighten your day and the Pollyanna Pickering images are just beautiful.

They both work really well with the Creative Crafting World dies - I love them all!!!

So easy to find your creativity when you have such beautiful things to work with and inspire you.

What is your favourite CCW product?

Happy Easter

I don't celebrate Easter - except from perhaps eating some chocolate, which to be honest kind of misses the point! lol
I've been really busy over the last month, lots of commission work, some things non crafty that I can't share with you guys yet (but I will as soon as I can) xxx
I always like a challenge or 2 and one of these commissions came in when one of my colleagues at work discovered that I crafted!
Sorry about the water bottle in the first piccy....
I do love all things purple!

 Mary had a wedding to attend last month, this was the card I made her for the special day x
 A few close ups for you.... I do love making quilled roses.
The button picture was a commission from Sharon.... I'm really happy with the way it turned out. She must have loved it too as she's asked me to make one for her family too x
It's a manic few weeks for me. We have a very poorly pupster at the moment and a very very busy couple of weeks at work with all the Easter classes and kids clubs.

Happy crafting whatever you are up to xxx

I 💜 ProMarkers

 Over on the I 💜 ProMarkers blog there has been some love in the air.
This was the image that I worked with from our sponsor - The Paper Shelter.
I loved working with their background papers and images  to create this card.
If you look at my next picture you will see that I just had to add loads of glitter to it as well.
I do love a bit of sparkle.
