New stamp

Love the santoro mirabelle stamps. This one is called Pursuit of Happiness, I definitely found some of that in my craft room this evening.  Finally started to get to grips with using Distress Markers for colouring. This is my first complete project using them.

Golden Wedding

Congratulations to my Mum and Dad they have been married 50 years tomorrow.  They have gone on holiday to a secret destination, just hope the weather doesn't spoil their plans.  I love these Lily of the Valley stamps, I couldn't choose between them so i used them both.  I made the flowers using a free cut on the cricut craft room.  The images are coloured with promarkers - I'm finally improving my technique.

Entering for the Allsorts Challenge 'Deco delight' and I love promarkers 'Anything Goes'

LOTV 9th birthday

My beautiful niece turned 21 last week and here is her card.  I love this image along with many other LOTV designs.  In fact I've just reorganised my stamps and was amazed by how many LOTV stamps I have amassed.  I have just treat myself to a couple of the new romantic stamps, they were the perfect images for a very speical card I have made for my parents wedding anniversary which is in a months time.  I spent a whole day playing in my craft room last week when it was half term, what a treat.  I can't wait to share the wedding anniversary card but I have to wait until the special day arrives.  In the meantime I want to enter this card for the LOTV 9th birthday competition.  Hopefully I can add a few more stamps to my collection.Thanks for stopping by.

Loving LOTV and Knitting!

A couple of recent cards made using LOTV stamps.

I love this range and have just ordered a couple of new ones, the images are so versatile, I have coloured these with Promarkers, I use them in a very simple way,  I haven't got hours for crafting and I had to do both of these cards in hurry.  I should build up a stash of cards but I just don't seem to work that way, I like to prepare cards specifically for the people who are going to receive them.

I've been having a go at knitting recently, inspired initially by Amber's attempt to knit a phone sock.  When i nipped in the wool shop for her, i spotted some scarf wool on offer, inspired by the wonderful advice by the lady in the shop I purchased a couple of balls.  The scarves are very satisfying, knit up extremely quickly and the result is a surprisingly professional scarf. 
Now I have well and truly got the knitting bug, I have embarked on knitting a teddy bear, a purple one of course!  It is the first time I have attempted to follow a pattern, the head and body are complete, partly due to the 4 days I have just spent on the sofa due to a mystery knee injury!!
Hopefully he or she will appear in a future entry.

So little time, so much to do

I have been crafting honest!!!  I just haven't got round to blogging. 

I have to confess I didn't decorate the pot for the bouquet myself, but I did make the bouquet.
Now I've discovered knitting, Amber and I are addicted to scarf wool and now I'm going to try knitting a bear, I'll probably get round to blogging them in August!

The Wedding

Oh dear I really must do some more regular blogging. I have done some crafting since February honest!!! Paul's brother got married last weekend so I was inspired to have a go at a towel cake and here is my first creation. To go with it I made a horseshoe (which has got a real horse shoe inside it) for Matthew to present to the bride. Last but not least I had just had to use the LOTV bride and groom to make the card.  We had a lovely day catching up with Paul's family who a spread out around the country and therefore rarely get together in one place.  Of course the sun shone all day and the bride and groom looked radiantly happy.
