Simple men's card



I've been AWOL from blog land for quite a while. Combo of family crises and my having shoulder surgery. 

I've had a problem with my neck & shoulder for about 18 months now, causing a lot of pain & limiting my activities - including crafting! 

Anyway, long story short, I had surgery just over 3 weeks ago to remove a section of my collarbone & some additional bony growths. I am well on the road to recovery, physio is quite tough & I can't drive yet, or wear anything that needs to go over my head, but that will come. 

Still not crafting, able to do some colouring tho, so thought I'd share a card I made a while ago but didn't blog. This is using leftover snippets from First Edition 'Isabella' 12x12 pad and a set of Little Claire stamps. Clean and simple, with a few snippets of backing card, some ribbon from the bit box & some card candi. 

Hope everyone is looking forward to the Bank Hol weekend. I'm looking forward to being able to hold a craft knife and ruler sometime soon!

Squeeze card

Hi everyone, it's been a long time since my last post, lots of family stuff going on & busy! My craft room is a neglected, dusty space full of dumped stuff - must remedy that!

Anyhow, I have a class next week, so thought I'd share what we're going to make.....

This squeeze card is easy to make & squashes flat for posting. Even fits in a standard C5 envelope ;-)

Used lots of snippets for the flowers & flourishes, so I'll be popping over to Pixies Snippets Playground to check out who else has been busy - see the side bar for the link. 

Hope you've had a lovely Easter and you're enjoying the Sunshine. 

Thanks for stopping by

Anniversary card

Happy new Year everyone! Know I'm a bit late, but as its my first post of 2015 thought it was ok :-)

Been a bit quiet in the craft room for a month or so due to a combo of work, flu & family schtuff. But it was my anniversary early jan, so I cracked open the door to the crafty hideaway & made this little guy


It's a crafters Companion stamp from last year that I've been saving, so it qualifies me to enter in Darnells NBUS (never been used schtuff!) challenge - Click on the link in the sidebar to see what other crafters have been up to!


I went to town with the Stickles, so took a close up to show how sparkly it is


Hard to show sparkles in camera! Also used lots of diddy snippets for the letters & heart, so linking to Pixies crafty Playground - check out the link in the side bar to join in. There's lots of crafty inspiration there!

So, day off today, first for quite a while. still in pj's at 10.30 - so decadent!! Suppose I ought to hit the shower....maybe one more cuppa first :-)

Thanks for stopping by
