Majestic Mare

A bit of a clean and simple easel card from me today using  the Majestic Mare stamp from Honey Doo crafts
I used the Honey Doo Dark Moonstone embossing Powder but didn't matter how many time I tried I couldn't get it photographed to show the amazing colours in it,

Made the flower and leaves from flower silk.

Wedding/Valentine Card

Front of Card

After I can't believe almost four years since I last posted on my blog, I have finally moved and got my own little craft room, all my stash is out of storage and I can finally play again, Yay!

I first saw the Foamiran at Ally Pally being demonstrated by my old DT buddy Tracy Payne of - Tracy makes the most beautiful cards and flowers.

Following the Oyster Craft retreat, where we got to play with Foamiran I couldn't wait to have a go and make some flowers myself.

These are my first attempts and have to say am well impressed.

With some inspiration from Martine Smith I made this boxed Wedding/Valentines card.

3 Embellishments at Fab n Funky

Hiya everyone

Havent been around for ages,things have been hectic here, had a little holiday to Turkey then came back and went straight into hospital for an op on my knee, come out and got what had to be MAN flu,
seriously never knew women could catch it!

Today Im hosting what will be my last challenge with Fab n Funky for a while as I have had to pack up all my craft stuff as we are completely redecorating our house ready to sell in the new year.

For the theme this week I have chosen 3 Embellishments so should be nice and easy lol.

 I have kept really simple using some holly, twine and a charm, but you can use as many of each embellishment as you like.

This real cute image is Claudia Loves Christmas which is available from our fab sponsor this week

Altered Photo Box

Hello Peeps

Wow the last two weeks have been totally manic I had to go to Manchester to work for a few days followed by the Heartfelt Retreat in Warwick back for a day and off to Euro Disney for a few days with my 3 year old grandson (where it rained continually) back from there totally knackered  and straight out to see Miss Saigon with a real good friend Jan.

Here's a photo of my gorgeous little munchkin Mason at Disneyland.

I made this box for Jan for her travel photos. Inspired by Penny's use of metal embellishments and paints I made this without a piece of designer paper or copic in sight.

I stuck a whole mixture of things on the box which I then covered in gesso, added Paperartsy Grunge paste and crackle paste using various stamps and masks.
 I then painted it with Very Berry, Rose, Smoked Paprika, Blood Orange and Claret Fresco Acrylic paints by Paperartsy. I then used black gold and white acrylic paints which I dry brushed over the top. Added Treasure gold in areas.

Some close ups of the details.

 I then sprayed red glimmer mist over the whole thing, followed by a pearl and gold mist.

 The insert is a postcard embossing folder I think maybe spellbinders but not too sure.
 The bird and elephant I picked up at Camden Market along with other metalic bits.
 The cogs and corner embellishments are from Make It Crafty
 The faces I made with air dry clay.
 Letters are Tim Holtz die cuts with gold Treasure Gold 
 and a quick look at the back

Best Medicine
 is the theme chosen by my talented teamie Shirley 
for this weeks challenge at 

inspired i'm sure by this weeks sponsor
Bugaboo Stamps
I got to play with a Bugaboo image from the Gus series

and this is what I did

sorry about the photo not very good but with the trouble I was having tonight Im just grateful I managed to get the card done at all.

Talk about ditzy I was totally stoopid tonight and thought I had broken
my ebossser completely when I 
picked my magnetic sheet up along with my sandwich and put it through the machine at the bottom
it got caught completely and started to go through to the mechanisms.
luckily hubby came to my rescue and managed to take the machine apart to get it all out and its working once more yay.

Photo inspiration at Fab N Funky


The challenge this week at Fab n Funky is a photo inspiration

The colours are one of my favourite colours schemes, and was just perfect for the image that I chose from our amazing sponsor this week who is

and here is what I did

She is called Dragon Rider and I just loved colouring her.

I made her quite big cos there is soo much detail on her so kept the card really simple.
I coloured the image with copics I would list the colours but would you believe I ended up using over 25 different colours lol.
Im not always happy with my colouring but am quite pleased with how this turned out and just know I will be colouring this one again.
