Are they hollyhocks???

Hello and welcome.  Thank you for all the lovely comments left last time.

Here's a card I made yesterday

The backing paper is from Craftwork Cards Cottage Garden Collection, the image is Creative Expressions Birdsong Meadow mounted onto one of Sue Wilsons Spanish Collection dies.  The flowers are from Spellbinders Rose Creation dies.  The background looks lilac, but it is in fact a pale teal!

Till next time ..............

All that Glitters ............

Hello and welcome to another blog post.  Thank you again for the lovely comments left on my last post.

I had two days that whatever I went to do went wrong - had a better day today!

Here's what I've been up to:

The frame is from Imagination Crafts which I painted with eco-friendly acrylic paint, and Pebeo acrylic paint.  The Stencil is Wysteria, also from Imagination Crafts as is the Sparkle Medium used to colour it.  The fairy, butterfly and sentiment I have had for yonks!!! lol  The flowers are Faux Quilled Blooms from Creative Expressions and designed by the lovely Sue Wilson.  Sorry about the glare on the butterfly, it is actually glittered in the same colour as the Wysteria!!!

Till next time .................

Always a first time for everything!

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last blog post.  I Always look forward to a visit.

Well. today, whilst I was thinking what I was going to do craft wise, I suddenly remembered that I had a canvas that I hadn't used.

 I decided to paint the background with Eco friendly periwinkle acrylic paint
and a little bit of Indigo Blu's Grandma's Teacup Acrylic Paint.  Next I used a mask from Imagination Crafts - Butterfly Daisy (I only used the daisies), and dabbed some Cosmic Shimmer Matt Chalk White Paint,  Indigo Blue Banana Custard Acrylic Paint, and Mallard Green Silks through the stencil with cut and dry foam..

The topper, charm, ribbon and flowers are all from Lelli-bot.  The butterfly was from my stash, and the trail was done with Cosmic Shimmer Pearlised PVA.

So, using a canvas,  the acrylic paints and the silks through a stencil were all new to me.  Hope you like it.

                Till next time .......................

Thank you so much for the kind comments left on my blog post on Thursday.  I have made a card from another kit from:
The kit is called Pure Elegance and Lace, and has some lovely toppers etc in it.  Do go and have a look when you have a minute or two.

I embossed the background with a butterfly embossing folder, unfortunately I threw the packaging away so don't know whose it is!!!  The lattice was made from a cutting file, the turquoise card and the flowers are  from my stash.  The topper, butterflies and sentiment are from the kit.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  Till next time ............

Fabulous flutterbies!

Well, at last I am back in the world of crafting.  Haven't done any since January due to illness - am still not 100% and am waiting on an appointment at the ENT Clinic.  I may not be blogging as I used to, but it's good to do at least one post.

Here's the card I made today 

 Everything on the card with the exception of the gems and mirri card is from the Radiant Butterflies range from Lelli-bot Crafts, which is a new company 
. The background card is embossed with the Cabbage Rose embossing folder.

Lelli-bot's can be found on facebook here:
 there is a giveaway on this page when 1,000 members is reached and the winner will receive a full kit of their choice.

They can also be found here:

Hope you will pop over and join the groups, where you will be made welcome, and also don't forget to have a look at the website at:

Please forgive me if I don't manage to get to comment on your blogs, but I can't be on my laptop for too long before I begin to feel poorly, but I am thinking of you all and miss you.

Take care till next time ...................... xxx
