Its the weekend!!

Finally the weekend is here, and now I have done the grocery shopping, the rest of the weekend is mine to craft.  My Humphrey christmas stamps and cd rom were delivered yesterday, so I think he is going to take up most of my time.

I thought I would share with you a card I made this week for my friends little boys birthday.

The easel card is made using spellbinders labels 8 die, and again the matting and layering was mage with using this die.  The check paper is some I found in my stash.  The stamped image is from Lilly of the Valley, which I then coloured with Spectrum Noirs.  I distressed around the edge of the stamped image using faded jeans.  I attached a sentiment to the base of the easel and 2 button (martha stewart punch).

I am gradually getting used to blogging, and I think I am soon going to start taking place in challenges.

I hope you like this card, and thank you for stopping by to say hello.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Good afternoon. I just thought I would share with you a christmas card I made earlier today. I used a Humphrey stamp that was free with a magazine.  He is just sooooo adorable, and I cannot wait until later when I can order him from Crafters Companion.
I created an easel card by using grand nestabilitie Labels 23 and I also stamped the image on this nestie.  I coloured the image with spectrum noirs, used glitter on the bottom of the image, and then using faded jeans distress ink to create the sky.  The paper was from my stash.  A marianne die was used to create the poinsettia, and heart pins I got from my local craft shop.  Finally a MS punch was used as the easel stopper and ribbon tied on it.

I hope you like this, and thanks for stopping by.

Take care and big hugs Caroline xxx

Ruby, ruby, ruby.

Morning!!.  Well its a wet and windy Monday morning in Lincolnshire which makes it the perfect day to make some cards.
I thought I would show you a card book I was asked to make for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary present.  It took 12 hours to complete, and there are many photos.  I was given copies of the original wedding invitations, orderof service and newspaper clipping.

 Behind the 40 is the original invitation
I left blank mirror card spaces for them to put photos in from their anniversary party.  I then made a box to keep it in.

Thanks for stopping by and for following me.

Christmas in September.

Hello everyone, sorry I've not been active on my blog, but we have been away in windy Norfolk in a tent!!.

I thought I would share with you my first christmas card.  I brought this stampendous stamp this morning and could not wait to get into my craft room and play.
The snowmen are coloured in using spectrum noirs, the edges are distressed with tumbled glass, as is the base paper.Also around the edges of the snowmen layer I applied glitter glue.  I used a snowflake mask that I embossed using core card stock and then sanded to reveal the snowflakes.  The sentiment is from Little Claires.  The snowflakes are die-cut using marianne dies, then I applied champagne versamark ink on them and ultra thick embossing powder.  Then just to finish it off I found some ribbon out of my stash.

Thank you for stopping by.
