dearest mother

Good morning! In honour of Mother's Day this Sunday in the UK, we have a theme of SPECIAL MOTHERS at Crafts 4 Eternity this week.

Well this is short and sweet from me today as I have taken the week off to paint the outside of my house, when it is not raining! I am feeling black and blue!

Papers and title: My Mind's Eye ~ Stella & Rose: Hazel.

Flowers & leaves: Prima

Thank you for looking.

love, love, love

Good morning! Today at Crafts 4 Eternity, we have an anything goes theme. 

I have made a box! Love making these.

I have used the Sizzix Matchbox die to create the three drawers.

The drawer pulls were created from a Marianne Design flower die, with a brad inserted. You will also see these dotted around the box.

I have added little lacey inserts inside the drawers.

For the top and base is used the Sizzix Notebook die to cut the back edge.

Then I cut the Tim Holtz Bird cage die. I've added some bling and a Prima vintage trinket.

Papers: Bo Bunny ~ Crush.

Back of the box.

Thank you for looking.

Graphic 45: a ladies' diary

Good morning! Today at Everybody Art Challenge, our theme is for a non-cute card.

I have used the Graphic 45 papers and the chipboard tag of the same name, to create this.

The top of the picture forms a scroll.

On the base layer, I have added a little mixed media dimension.

Prima wooden clocks complete.

Thank you for looking.

now we are 7

Good morning to you! It's been a while since I was here. I've started many projects, but not managed to finish any until now. Things have been a bit busy.

Today at Crafts 4 Eternity, we have a sketch for you.

So, what better way than to come back with a Magnolia card.

I wanted to make this A5 size, so I struggled a bit with trying to fit in with the sketch, having just coloured up quite a large Tilda and not thinking about the final design! So, I have used a little artistic licence to squish it all in and hope the challenge police aren't after me.

Papers: My Mind's Eye ~ The Sweetest Thing.
Bling: Webster's Pages
Butterfly: Prima

I've got an extra little strip going down the right hand side, which isn't part of the sketch. This is because I cut the flowery paper down to size, but I had meant to cut a different paper! Rather than throw it away, I decided to cover up the join!

Image: Tilda with Hawaiian Flower, coloured with copics.

And look! The sun is shining! I have shadow on my card. Happy days :)

Thank you for looking.

I can't wait to see how you interpret the sketch.
