Rudolph Days - August 22

Hello there,

It's the 25th of the month, so time again for another 'Rudolph Days' challenge hosted by lovely Scrappy Mo.  Here's this month's card:

This card features a very old stamp of mine by Penny Black.  I just adore these wonderfully cute penguins.  I used a square mask so that I could create a frame and blend in the sky,  The sentiment is by Inkylicious and I added a few punched snowflakes which I think work really well against the background. 

I can't wait to see what you've all made for the challenge and I'd like to wish you all a very happy day xx

A Few Crafty Samples

Hello there,

I hope that you're all keeping well and happy.

I'm here today to share a few more of my samples from the last Crafty Individuals shows on Create and Craft:

The first card has a mandala that was designed by my crafty friend, Lynne Kirton, so I really wanted to do her proud and I'm happy with how the card turned out.  I've used Brushos in the background and then a gold glitter embossing powder to compliment the rich orange colour.

The last one with the ladybird on was a real labour of love as I used the front of the ladybird to create my border.....well, it seemed like a good idea at the time!

As you can probably see, I've enjoyed using my sequins this time around.

That's all from me for today but I'll be back soon with the last of my samples from the shows xx

Crafty Individuals On Telly Today

Hi there,

I just wanted to let you know that lovely Jean Hardy from Crafty Individuals will be on Create and Craft today at 12pm and 4pm.  She has some lovely new stamps and papers and who knows, you might even see a couple of my samples.  Here's just one of them:

I just fell in love with this paper as soon as I saw it and I knew that it would work perfectly with this fab honey bee drawn by Ellie Mulligan.  There are lots of layers on this one and I finished it by adding a blue jewel in the center of the bee and a few gold sequins to give it some sparkle .  I hope that you can join Jean but if not, then it will be available on catch up for the next couple of months.

Take care and I'll be back soon with more samples xx
