Hello Crafty Friends, hope you have managed to stay dry  and warm today.  We've been lucky here it was a beautiful frosty but sunny day.  Pity the sun goes down just after 3pm. though!   Well it has taken me more hours than I care to think about but I eventually managed to put 1 card together.  I can't really work with these small cards 4" x not quite 6"  I had so many ideas but nothing would come together. I finally settled for this one.  White card embossed with the Spellbinders M-bossabilities Christmas Folder EL 014  scalloped and plain circle dies, Memory box Leaping reindeer.  The stamped image is one I've had for a few years not sure where it's from but it might be Tanda Stamps and sentiment is a Marianne die
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the lovely comments you leave.

It's been almost 2 weeks since I was last in blogland.  I hope everyone is well and enjoying lots of crafty time.  I've made a couple of cards last night and this afternoon.  Earlier in the week I tried making box-envelopes for some of my more embellished cards.  That didn't quite work out, I didn't have any instructions to follow so  it took me a few tries to get it almost right but not quite good enough to give to anyone, so ended up just making boxes for them.  It made making my cards seem easy lol!

This Art Deco lady came free with the Docrafts Creativity magazine.  I stamped it on to a plain white card.  I used my Tied together embossing folder on a 5x7 card which was mostly hidden by my stamped image, so I dry embossed  a polkadot pattern around the image added some flowers, jewels and home made beaded pins.
I coloured in using promarkers

The 2nd card is another variation with die-cuts and card candi.  The image was coloured using Distress inks (Peacock Feathers and Shaded Lilac)

Christmas card, plain card embossed using Spellbinders M-bossabilities Christmas folder EL-014  Mariane snowflakes,  Spellbinders circles, scalloped and plain, printed sentiment from pc, left over sticky backed jewels and an image from my stash

Thanks for popping by, enjoy the rest of your week.

Evening crafty friends.  I hope you have all had a good week.  I managed to make a couple of cards this week but I think I spent more time cutting out with the GC thank actually crafting. 

These cards are smaller than I'm used to so found it a bit difficult to get my ideas to work out.  The image for this one was a  gift tag I found from last year matted and layered on to an embossed card and using various die-cuts
 Memory box corner and leaping deer, Cheery Lynn holly corner and Spellbinders  layered poinsettia  Marianne greeting all used on the second card

I can't remember which stamp set this image is from, I'll look it up tomorrow but right now it's time for my bed.  Hope you all have a good and happy weekend

Hello folks, thank you so much those of you who sympathised with me on my loss.  Still can't believe it.  But I have tried to keep up with my card making.  I've not done a lot though.  I did a lot of die-cuts and moved a lot of things from here to there and back again.  Finally a card came together today.
I used some die-cuts   - Marriane, Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn.  Flowers and beads from my stash.   The scripture verse is from   Our Daily Bread stamps Scripture Collection 1  which I got from Oyster Stamps when I was at the SECC a couple of weeks ago.
Thanks for any comments you leave and I do hope you have all had a great weekend

A very quick post from me tonight.  My lovely companion for the last 13 years (almost) took ill last Sunday and died on Monday.  So this page is for him                   Last winter having to get carried home after a long walk in the snow.

Waiting patiently for me to finish cutting his hair.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend
