Another dull and dismal day today here in the West Midlands of the UK.  Not much like summer at all at the moment but hopefully the sun will get his hat on before too long.

A very good friend of mine became a Nanny for the first time last week to a gorgeous baby girl Olivia Louise. So today I am sharing with you the cards I made for the very proud parents and grandparents.

For this first one for the parents I used the fabulous Crealies patchwork die, which I love, and the stamped image is LOTV. The heart pattered paper I printed from the Dreamee's Floral Delight CD

For this one for the Grandparents I used the same LOTV stamp and again papers and flowers from the Dreamee's CD. The banner is LaLa Land and the die is Spellbinders

I have also created a frame but will have to wait to show that as I haven't parted with it yet.

Well that's about it from me today.
Bye for now

I'm back with a couple of last weeks makes. Still got the bug  for creating these frames so this is the latest I made last week. Find this very relaxing and therapeutic. Amazing what you can do with a bit of cardboard, some black gesso and gilding wax.

Another of my latest favourites is the Crealies patchwork die No.1. I used a Sweet Poppy stencil and Cosmic Shimmer glitter paste.

Kind regards

The sun has got his hat on

Well I've had a lovely few days both out enjoying the lovely sunshine and crafting.
On Thursday we had a ride out and guess what ended up at a craft shop, the lovely Sunrise Crafts at Wombourne, Staffordshire. I treated myself to a Sweet Poppy stencil and a set of tonic dies. Anyway while I was there and Bhanu was showing me some cards she'd made using some of the stencils I spied a lovely altered art mirror. Turned out that there was a class on Saturday to create one, so I signed up. Although I have shopped at this store many times I have never joined in any of the classes. Well what a great class it was by Andy Coates. Thoroughly enjoyable with lovely company. I shall join more.

So here is the mirror I created, hope you like it. It has a fantastic metalic look.

Now here is what I created with the Sweet poppy stencil I bought. I used some Creative Expressions Glitter paste though the stencil and added some background detail using distress ink and sequin waste.

Here's hoping the good weather stays a while.
So until the next time
Kind regards
