I've got more crafty plans for tomorrow so I will be back to share with you what I have made.

Take care for now.

Fairy Poppets Birthday Card

Hi all Happy New Year.

Well hope you are all well. I’ve had a busy few months and haven’t been blogging much again which is very naughty I know. Also I sometimes forgot to take photos of my cards to blog and post on facebook.

Well I am here today to share a card I made for my Mother for her birthday. Some of you may have seen my card on Facebook as I did post on there on Monday. I have used the Crafter’s Companion Fairy Poppets CD and Die Cut Decoupage.

Finally I added details with ribbon and gems


Thanks for stopping by
