Some News

I have sadly resigned from the Eclectic Ellapu Design Team as of today. I have loved every minute of my time there and I'm so grateful to Elaine for believing in me and giving me that chance.

Ive a lot going on at the moment and my crafting has taken a back burner for a while.

I wish my fellow DT members all the best and hope to join in a challenge one day soon.

For not blogging for a while, I've simply been too poorly to have the energy to create, let alone switch on the computer and blog hop. On the mend now though, so hopefully back to normal soon.

Apologies for being a rubbish blogger and follower.

Dont look if your squeamish


Sorry ive not blogged properly for a while i've been really poorly with a bad kidney infection
And have had to have a scan coz they think iI have a kidney stone! Then yesterday i
Had an emmergency appointment at the Dentist thinking I needed a filling and ended up having my top right wisdom tooth removed.

I'm a phobic patient and in the past have had to be sedated for even just a simple cleaning, but last october I chose to go private and have not looked back since! I did have a bit of a wobble where I went really faint but my dentist was on the ball had the chair positioned so my head was almost on the floor and legs in the air lol and monitored my pulse and I was ok.

My worst nightmare survived! Im sore and on more antibiotics but really really PROUD of myself.

Birthday & Butterflies

Good Morning

Another Sunday Morning and another Challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and it's all change this week, we have now gone three weekly with our challenges and you have a choice of two themes, the Pinkies theme or the Purplies theme. This week the lovely Vicky  has chosen the Purplies theme: Birthday & Butterfly.

I have recently found "Live Love Crafts" and every month I treat myself to a few little goodies and this month it was these beautiful vintage images and the stunning lace. I have added some promarkers to the flowers in the image in matching colours to the design papers.

The beautiful pearls and flowers are from "The Ribbon Girl" and the butterflies are die cut. The sentiment stamp is by "Lili Of The Valley". I opted for a shaped card to create something a little special.

I cannot wait to see the fabulous entries this week and dont forget to check out my fellow teamies gorgeous inspiration.

Thanks for looking.

Winter Sparkle

Good Morning,

Another Sunday and another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, this week our purple hostess is Chris and she has chosen the theme: Sparkle with sequins or gems.

I have a Christmas Card to share with you made with my "Magnolia Tilda with Little Rudolph" stamp.

I coloured Tilda with my promarkers and added diamond stickles for a little sparkle, she was cut out using my oval and scalloped oval nesties. I added some liquid pearls to the background also. I then framed Tilda with irredescent beads from "The Ribbon Girl" and with my "Memory Box Die", I also added gems to the centre of all the snowflakes and diamond stickles. The blue ribbon, lace and all flowers are also from "The Ribbon Girl".

This is a close up of the sparkle and details. The DP's are Basic Grey, I also edged the whole card with beads you can never have enough sparkle at Christmas.

Thank you for looking, we cannot wait to see your entries. Don't forget to check out my fellow teamies inspirational projects over at Eclectic Ellapu.
