I started with good intentions to make Christmas cards, but I confess to getting distracted far too easily! I had already coloured up this cute saturated canary image and so needed to make her up into a card and I came across this beautiful flowery sheer ribbon that was a present from hubby a couple of years ago. I played with my bowdabra and made this beautiful bow. This one was coloured with promarkers. The die cuts are a mixture of joy craft and memory box and the papers are freebies from a magazine.

Dancing with stars Tilda...yay a Christmas card!

I have been so busy not making Christmas careds, that I thought I needed to give myself a good talking to and get on with some! I dug out my MAHOOSIVE collection of Tilda stamps and found this little cutie  from last year's Christmas collection. I have used this one quite a few times and I love her all over again! She has been coloured with copics. A big thanks to my friend, Diane, who sent me the heart pin. xxxx Thanks

Tilda on the loose

I really must stop making cards just for my own pleasure and get on with the Christmas ones. The rate I'm going nobody will end up receiving one this year! Still, I did love messing around with this little cutie from one of the older Magnolia collections. This is from the Bon Voyage Collection. Maybe, it's Bon Voyage to these kinds of cards and Bonjour to all the Christmas ones I haven't yet made!
Tilda has been coloured with copics and I have used pumice stone distress ink aroud the DPs. Hope you like her!

Happy Birthday Clare.

This is the card I sent the very lovely Clare from Miscanthus crafts.

Blog updates!

Wow, I have been awol for over a month! What have I been doing? Ok, I have been off on hols, been to a fab wedding and behind the scenes I have been making a few cards, but I am struggling to find the time to do everything. My apologies to Di and the team for blogging these cards so late.
