Moreheads Sneak Peek 4

Well I have some more Moreheads for you today.


I have used a mixture of christmas decoupage and Hunkydory kits for these 4 cards. These cards are just simple but it shows that the kits look just as good when used this way.


I hope you all tune in to Create and Craft today to watch Leann Chivers demonstrating all of the products and showing the rest of the Design Team’s Wonderful Samples.


Hope you all have a good day

Hi all

Hi all i'm still here, I just haven't been blogging lately due to personal reasons and being away on holiday.
 We had a brilliant holiday, here's a picture of the wonderful sunset from the hotel's bar. It was stunning.

 I have been doing a little bit of crafting the past few weeks to keep me going though. I hope to be back soon with some DT cards I have made for Crafter's Companion but for now I can't post them - all I can say though is watch this space. 

In the mean time though here is the link to the new challenge over on my Jewellery Challenge Blog. Why not pop over and join in if you like making Jewellery.

This is the necklace I have made for inspiration.


Take care and I will be back soon with some of my creations
