Cuttlebug Embossing

Hi Crafters,
I don't know about any one else, but I am getting fed up with this cold weather. I don't like wishing my life away but roll on Spring.....

Here is a card Embossed using Cuttlebug embossing folder and the Buterfly also from Cuttlebug. Left blank so suitable for any occasion

I cut out the butterfly in white card embossed it, then coloured the edges with blue and brown fluid chalks  until I got the affect I was after.I then added beads for the body.

I only embossed part of the white backing leaving it plain at the bottom. I then added some ribbon from My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow range to finish off the card.

Well that's all for now. I hope you like it. Thanks, see you soon.

Crocheted Flower

Hi Crafters,

Gosh where does the time go, I can't believe it has been so long since my last post.
And my goodness hasn't the weather been awful, just Snow, snow and yet more snow and I am just about getting board with it now. Please someone, tell me spring will soon be on it's way.

Right I'd better get on. Here is my first card of the year.

I have been doing a bit of crocheting. I have made some lovely little flowers I'm sure you have seen them around lately. Well I thought I would have a go at making some myself. If you can crochet then you will be able to make these they are so easy.
The backing paper used is from My Minds Eye, Bloom and Grow range
The Flower is made up of 2 sizes of crocheted flowers and a flower cut from the backing paper. A jewel brad for the centre to hold them together.

Well that's it for now. I hope you like it. Thanks I'll see you soon.
