Thinking of you

Hello everyone

I thought I would share this card I made for a friend who is going through a bad time at the moment.  She has just received it and is over the moon and I am pleased it made her smile.

I used an edging die as the focal point with distress oxides as the background - here is the pic.....

 Thanks for taking the time to drop in and take a peek - much appreciated

 Hi again all

I am now starting to post my cards individually so as to enter some challenges.  For this creation I used linen cardstock and unbranded die of butterflies.  I used distress oxide for the backing to show off these beautiful creatures.

Now for the pic

Thank you for taking the time to pop on over to see me

Sharing Christmas cards

 Hi all

I would just like to share some Christmas cards I have been working on.  This post will contain many pictures as I have not had much time to post individually.  

Here are a few of the many I have made over the last couple of weeks.  I will list cards singularly as time goes on as I will be entering challenges.

Thanks for taking the time to pop over and see me

2 X Simplicity

 Good morning all you crafty people

Today I am sharing with you another two really simple cards.  Just loving these for quickness especially when there are many to make for the up and coming season.  Diecut, stick add a little sparkle..... voila all done

Again these are unbranded dies and I love him so much - so regal.

Thank you for taking the time to look

Christmas cards

 Hi again

Yes I have made it back with some more Christmas cards I put together today.  I used the same die cuts for the first three cards but different variations.  I bought the dies from Amazon - unbranded.

The following two are also unbranded dies

I hope you like as much as I enjoyed putting them together

Belated Birthday card

 Well here I am with my first post of hopefully many to come.  I realized it is a friends birthday today so out came my supplies.

I used Linen card stock for the base.  I used my Memory Box frames, really fiddly but worth the patience.  I blended three of my oxide ink pads, bundled sage, scattered straw and speckled egg over the centre of the die cuts.  I then splattered with water.  Once dry I  stamped my sentiment and adhered my poppy die cut to the side.

That's it really - I hope you like it.

Watch this space..........

 Hi all

I have decided to try and reignite my blog.  As many of you know I used to run two design teams, Altered Eclectics and Eclectic Ellapu where I had lots of fabulous designers working tirelessly for my blogs to showcase their work on a monthly basis to give others inspiration.  They were absolutely so talented.  I was also a member of many design teams. Unfortunately I became ill and no longer had any aspirations to make anything at all. I was heavily into mixed media art and altering objects.  I decided a couple of months ago to restart concentrating on making cards.  

I will on occasion showcase some of my makes now and then and maybe enter some challenges in blogland and on Facebook pages.

Anyway that's my very short announcement and will be posting in the very near future

 Here are a couple of my favourite stamp sets for the humorous/sarcastic sayings.  I use alot of Dylusions sayings and Tim Holtz crazy cats and dogs. I love snarky cats too.  I have made several cards with just the sarcastic sayings in the centre, of which I will eventually get around to posting on my blog at some point,

Hope you like
