Punches and/or Dies with Crafty Calendar!

                                                           Hi crafty friends, hope you're all well & have something nice planned for the weekend! Can you believe it's July 2nd already......and we're now closer to next Christmas than we are to last lol!!
So the 1st Saturday of any month means only one thing......a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar! This time the theme is a nice, easy one for you...... PUNCHES and/or DIES!

We're lucky enough to have the fabulous All Dressed Up sponsor us this month & they very kindly gave us some images to play with. I chose Smile, It's Your Birthday......she reminds me so much of my own little Miss who can often be found with a camera in her hands! I coloured her with Copics, used papers that were freebies with a mag, I added a filmstrip die cut, a die cut butterfly & leaves then finished with some hand dyed seam binding, lots of flowers & a few gems.

Rightio my friends, that's my lot for today......thanks for calling & for any comments you might leave. Whatever you're up to have a lovely weekend!

Festive Greetings!

Hi crafty friends, hope you're all well & enjoying the weekend. We have sunshine today & beautiful blue skies.......and a line full of washing......oh, it's the simple things that make me happy lol.
So for today I have a Christmas card to share, I'm way behind this year so I better get a wiggle on if I don't want to be rushing around later on in the year! I wanted to use up some stash & the first thing I came to was this gorgeous snowman & paper by Nitwits.
There's 3 layers to him & I added some glitter for extra sparkle. a die cut signpost, some punched snowflakes & chitchat word stickers. The larger snowflake is layered with a ribbon bow & finished with a sprinkling of glitter.
Rightio, I'm off for a crafty hour or two..........thanks for calling & whatever you're up to I hope you manage a little crafty time!

Sharing an Oldie this Friday!

Hey lovelies, happy Friday! Hope you're all well & have something nice planned for the weekend. Me? I'm planning a long, lazy's been a strange kind of a week.......super busy but not very productive so 'm hoping a couple of days to recharge my batteries will see me raring to go come Monday morning!

So being Friday you know what that means......time to share an oldie with our lovely hostess Erika over at Snappycrafts as she invites us to look back over past crafty makes. If you fancy joining in it's easy, just pop on over & link up! I'm feeling a little bit Christmas-y right now so thought I'd share a couple of Christmas themed ATC's I made the year before last.
I started with inky backgrounds then rolled up & slightly flatted lots of snippets of different widths to form the tree. A stamped word, a length of twine & a sprinkle of frantage and that was it!
Rightio, that's me for today.....better go get on if I want my lazy weekend, Thanks for calling......have a lovely weekend!

A little bit shabby......

Hi crafty friends, hope you're all well & had a lovely weekend.
Here's hoping your Monday is going, I've only cut through the magnetic shim for my cut'n'boss.....not once.....and not even twice........but three times!!! Don't know what I was thinking lol. So today the weather was perfect for & rainy, just how I like it so I made a card!
Lots of distressed layers, I gave the top one a whitewash then added an assortment of flowers, a wooden birdcage, some die cut leaves & a sentiment.......sounds simple? It took me ages lol, couldn't decide on a layout so in the end I just stuck the brown flower & went for it! It was a lovely change to make a card without a stamped or digital image on......kind of reminded me of the early days when I was scrapbook crazy & I definitely got the urge to do some more. Plus, it's a lot easier on my hands!
Rightio, off for a wander around your blogs......once I've ordered myself another magnetic shim!!
Thanks for calling & any comments you might leave........I'm so very thankful.
