Cuddle Up

Thanks so much for all the lovely messages I received yesterday, it was really appreciated, when I was feeling at my lowest and was ready to delete my blog and never craft again, it was the thought of all the fabulous friends and their kindness that kept me going.

I am off to London to stay with my son Matthew today, we are going to the Olympic Stadium tomorrow evening to see the athletics, I think we are going to get there early and take a tour of the whole Olympic site plus hopefully take the Gondola over to the Excel centre, cannot wait.


After my break I am really behind with my Christmas Cards so thought I had better make a start now, this image is by Fizzy Moon and although I have had it since last year it has never seen ink, like many of my stamps Smile.

It was stamped onto to Neenah Classic card and coloured with Copics (numbers below), the papers are last years Magnolia Xmas collection, I am pleased with the classic Christmas Greens and Reds I have used, last year I was into more contemporary colours.  A little square of lint has been popped behind the image, and 3 Marianne Design Snowflakes have been cut and glittered from White Card.  The Roses are made with another Marianne designs die – Flowers & Leaves both dies are in stock at J & C Creations.    The little Tag is from the Lili of the Valley Sentiment Tags .


Copics used:

Greens: G99, YG67, YG63

Reds R46, R27, R24

Bears Muzzles: E51, E53

Body: E35, E33, E30, E50

Nose: E79, E74, E71

Fence: E71, E70

Have a good day

Wow its been a long time

Morning all I am back but I am taking my return very slowly , I have had a torrid 6 weeks but hopefully things are beginning to look much better (keep your fingers crossed). I didn’t realise how hard it was going to be to get back into crafting, I feel as if I have forgotten everything I knew, I even feel as if I have got to have hours of practise just to get back to my normal standard of colouring, and as for taking pictures !!!! as you will see from the photos below that also needs some work.

It seems fate that the first card I made after 6 weeks should be made using a Lili of the Valley image, they were, after all, my first love.  Todays card is for the new Lilis Little Fairies Challenge which this week has the theme of Anything but a Square.  We have a prize of 3 LOTV stamps on the challenge plus we are looking for 3 new Design Team Members, so I do hope you can come and join us.


My Cousin has just given birth to a lovely little Girl called Megan so I have made this little wall hanging to welcome her to the world.  The Chipboard hearts are available from J & C Creations I painted the chipboard with Pink Sherbert Paint Dabber and then covered front and back with Backing paper from the Papermania Lucy Cornwall paper pack.  The Lili of the Valley image is called “Special delivery”  and has been coloured with Copics.  I have used lots of Punches and Dies to finish the card.


This is short but I hope sweet, but I will improve promise

Hugs to you all
