Hiya folks, I go AWOL for ages and now you can´t keep me away lol. It is fabulous being fit enough again to play in my craft room so I am taking advantage. Something different from me today, no bright colours, papers nor flowers - yeeks what´s happened to me! I have taken the plunge and tried my hand at CAS but not too sure I have managed that yet.
This card I have made for a friend who has just started chemo and radiotherapy bless her.

I was fortunate and won this Ferns and Butterflies Silhouette stamp by Crafty Individuals  on   Crafty Hazelnut´s Christmas Challenge, I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black and matted onto black card. The verse/sentiment was already embossed on the card and is very appropriate I think.

Use a Digi

Good morning all I hope you are all well. Ooh it sure is a white out and the snow is still falling, being out of town there isn´t much traffic here and the roads are as bad as the pavements so it´s a stay indoors day again for me
This weeks theme at  Whoopsi Daisy is


You can use any digi to enter the challenge but if you use an image from the    Whoopsi Daisy Digi Shop you will win 2 sheets rather than 1 and let me tell you there are lots of beauties to be found there plus some freebies too.

I have used this girlie girl from sheet 389 and coloured her with my copics, isn´t she a cutie? I´m back to playing with my punches and this is my favourite corner punch ,both flowers have been punched and embossed and the brads are from Papermania and I think I got the wee flowers around image from the 100 peseta shop in Spain. Not sure whose backing papers they are as front page has come off the book, messy crafter I know! Ribbon is SU and sentiment from an old See D set.

1st Christmas card of the year

Good morning peeps I hope you are all well and not feeling the cold too much. Boy it´s bloomin freezing here, cold enough for fur lined knickers lol.  I am keeping cozy in my craft room and enjoying getting back into crafting at long last.

Today I have inked up "Willow with Lantern" and coloured her with my copics, such a pity she has lain here a few years without being used especially as she is so pretty and cute. I wonder who she´s looking for!

The papers are old ones too DCWV, Rose Tinted Christmas. Not a bad start to the New Year using up my old stash but method in my madness as there will be more room for the new stash I´ve just ordered. Sentiment was a freebie in a magazine and ribbon and pearls from Mei Flower.

Good morning everyone, I can´t believe it´s almost six months since I made a card, my poor blog has been so neglected this past two years so hopefully now that we have this New Year and I now have my two new hips things will gradually return to normal.

I am so excited to now be part of   Whoopsi Daisy Design Team and this week we have a fabulous theme for you to use your


Make sure you pop along to   Whoopsi Daisy Digi Shop where you will find the most adorable images and even some freebies.

I have used Sheet 389 and coloured her with my copics. Papers are Me to You Spring Chic, punched the leaves and bottom border not wasting those little hearts and die cut the swirl, flower and central panel with my new Die'sire Lace Border 3. Sentiment is from an old See D set and roses from WOC
