Up Up and away in my beautiful balloon.

Hi Crafter's

This is a quick and excited post to night.  For my birthday last month my DH bought me a ticket for a balloon flight.

Waa Hoooooo .... I went this afternoon and it was fantastic, brilliant, absolutely superb.
I have taken loads of pic's but I won't bore you with them all.

Yes the balloon is in that little bag.

    Unpacked.... now to blow it up....
Later we have to get in there with it lying down like that 
Here we are nearly ready to go....

Here we go, waving good bye to D H.....

We are on our way... Up Up and Away..

Well That's all for now I will post some more pics later this week.

Window stepper card.

Hi Crafter's,

Hope you have had a good weekend.

I have been playing with more Marianne Design Creatables, this time I have been using a Poinsettia cutter. I love these cutters.
I like a classic looking Christmas card.

Here it is again but this time cut out in white.

 The church window is a peeloff and I have cut out the card within the window.
The stamp used on both cards is a Clarity stamp.

Well that's all for now, thank you for visiting and I'll see you again soon.

Holly corner frame

Hi Crafter's

I have another card to show. I used a holly corner stamp from Clarity Stamps to create a frame.
Then stamped a tree ( also from Clarity Stamps ) on a separate piece of card stock, cut it out and mounted it on foam pads to one side of the frame.
Inside the frame I used one of the village die cutters used in my last post.

Well that's all for now. I hope you like it. Thank you for visiting and I'll see you again soon.

I hope you've had a good weekend.

I added a sprinkle of glammer dust for a bit of sparkle.

Open the door to Christmas....

Hi Crafter's
Here is a little classic card for you. I really like clean and simple looking cards.

The wreath on this card was made with ribbon and the greeting is hand written.
Here is a link of a tutorial  by Sue Wilson.
To make my wreath I used  1.5 mtr  of  3mm ribbon. I worked the ribbon until it was about 11cm.

The only tools used in making this was my trusty Fiskars trimmer, Hougie embossing board and a black fine liner pen.

Thank you for visiting I hope you enjoyed your visit. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. I do love reading your comments.  See you again soon.

Kanban Music

Hi Crafter's

Just a quick little post tonight before I go to bed.

Here is something different for the music lover I hope. I was playing with a set of stamps from Kanban and the T H Tatty flower.....

and this is what I came up with. Sometimes when I start playing I don't know what I'm going to end up with but I was quite happy with the end result.


I hope you like it and thank you for visiting. I will see you again soon with another card.
