Hi all this is a card I have just finished this morning. I have used my adorable Humphrey’s Corner CD from Crafter’s Companion. I decided to choose one of the frame cards as I hadn’t made a one for a while. I just love this adorable image, they all look like there having so much fun at the party!!!
I have matted the base onto some red cardstock, then matted onto coordinations card stock from the brights pad. I then chose a backing paper from the cd. I have also included an insert in the matching design.
I have used my e-Craft to make the text for the Happy Birthday and have used the same coordinations card for this.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
As usual thanks for stopping by.

Hi all here are the images I coloured on Friday at the Aston Hotel in Darligton at our monthly Crafty Colouring meet.
I am pleased with how these have turned out. All I have to do now is make them into cards!!!
Thanks for stopping by again.

Hi all I’ve been a very naughty blogger again. I have been busty crafting but just haven’t been blogging!!
I thought I would share with you today a few of my jewellery items I have been making.
The first one is a herringbone spiral necklace made using size 8’s and 9 Seed beads finished with a glass heart catch.
This next one is a cellini spiral made using size 6 seed beads and size 9’s. I have added a glass bead as detail in the centre and a decorative T Bar Catch. I must say I do like this design and will make another few of these experimenting with different sized beads etc.
The next two are the same design but I have used different beads which gives them a completely different look.
This first one I have used 4mm silver pearls, 4mm cubes, size 8 and 11 seed beads.
And this one has 4mm crystals and 4mm cubes, size 8 and 11 seed beads. The same pattern but a totally different look in another colour.
This piece is a herringbone bracelet I have made using size 9 and 11 seed beads and 4mm crystals.
The next two are memory wire sets, I went through a spell of making loads of memory wire jewellery and these are two of them.
Hope you like and thanks for stopping by

This is the card I made for my Husband for his birthday in April. I was really pleased with how this card turned out. It is my DT card for the current challenge over on My Time To Craft.
The image I coloured using Spectrum Noir pens from Crafter’s Companion Humprey’s Corner . To be honest I coloured this image back in November at the Craftaganza with my first try of using the pens. I just loved them from the off!!!!
I have added a ‘bunch’ of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and added some stickles.
Other items added to this card include:
Ribbon from the Ribbon Box.
Punched details using My Woodware heart border bunch and Martha Stewart ribbon boarder punch.
Pearls from the Ribbon Box.
Stamped greeting from Cuddly Buddly and I have added this onto a spelbinders label detail.
The card layers are matted onto coordinations, red card and mirror card.
Thanks for stopping by
