Cardio Stamps Card.....

 Morning all, well here we are another weekend is upon us !!!

I recently received some knitting/crochet/craft patterns from Mrs Duck (another blogger), and along with them was a lovely card she made using cardio stamps.

I thought it was lovely, and by chance, my friend has some cardio stamps. So I've had a go at doing a similar ccard

Have a good weekend. Bye for now x

Dumbo....The Worlds Cutest Elephant !!

Morning all, hope you are all well & happy. Did you all enjoy spring??? It happened last week and now we've bypassed summer and gone back to Autumn Lol !!

On a brighter note, my son's girlfriend is home for a couple of weeks. She is teaching in Dubai for a year. It was her birthday in February. I didn't post a card to her, but instead have made her this belated birthday/ welcome home card.

She loves Dumbo (don't we all) and I found a pattern on pinterest. It was supposed to be for hot fix crystals, but works equally well with my sewing on card. I used a pink/silver/black sparkly thread, and added googly eyes afterwards.

Once again using my Sue Wilson Noble square die. I didn't want to add any wording so just added a small butterfly.

 hope she likes it !!

Thanks for popping by, and hopefully I will see you all again soon. x

Results.....Not !!!!!

Morning all, hope your weekend is going great so far.

Did the craft fair yesterday, and what a waste of time that was !!!

When my friend and I was approached and asked if we would like a stall, we were told it was a fund raising day for the scouts.

What it actually was on the day, was a jumble sale !!! There were only 4 stalls, including us, that were selling new items. The rest of the stalls (about 12) were all full of jumble. There were no scout's about on any stalls, just the parents (i presume), no stalls with things that the scouts had made to sell. Nothing.

What was worse, was that there were no people coming in to buy either !!!

I sold an owl key-ring, my friend sold a hedgehog key-ring. The other stalls that were selling new things didn't sell anything. It should have been from 10-2, but we started packing up just after one.

A complete waste of time - oh well, I'll put that down to experience and move on.

I'm doing another stall on Friday evening at a pamper night event. Hopefully to better then.

Bye for now, and thanks for listening to me moan LOL !! x

Chocolate Bars for Mother's Day.....

 Morning all, a very quick blog today, as I'm out doing a craft fair this morning. Managed to decorate 10 chocolate bars ready to sell for Mother's day pressies. 

Christine Emberson, first showed this a few years ago, before I started doing craft fairs, such a simple idea, but very effective.
 A close-up of some of the bars.....

I'm doing another craft fair before Mother's Day, so hopefully will sell them all. If not, I can always take the wrappers off and re-decorate, ready for Father's day LOL !!! That's if I hide them away from him indoors LOL !!!

Bye for now x

Flying High !!!!

Morning all, hope the week has treated you ok so far, and that you are looking forward to the weekend.

It's my Ex husbands birthday next month, and although I always make him a card, I don't normally put in as much effort as I've done for this card. (I know that sounds mean.....but he is my ex for a reason !!)

Anyway, it's his 60th birthday and he is arranging to go up in a spitfire for a flight. I was given this decoupage airman (which was attached to another plane- but I cut that off) so I thought I must use it for him. I went on google images - a great place to find backgrounds etc - and found this image of spitfires taking off. 

I've backed it onto red, and then navy card stock, then added the airman on the front, along with the happy birthday and the number "60".

Hope he likes the card, and his flight.

I'm doing a craft fair tomorrow, so will report back with the outcome over the weekend.

Have fun, and thanks for stopping by xx

MAWTT CHALLENGE - flowers.....

 Morning all, it's that time again - the MAWTT challenge. This month it's set by Jenny, who wants to see handmade or die cut flowers.

I've made these small flowers by layering and colouring, then adding gems in the centre.

The vase is made from a circle of card, folded. Then i added a doily. The candi at the bottom ties in nicely with the colours.

Pop over to mawtt blog to see the other DT entries.....or why not enter yourself. No prizes, but just fun. x

 Morning all, hope your week is going great so far. Lovely sunny day here in Kent yesterday....let's hope it continues everywhere.

After making a few more owl key rings, I decided to make a few more clown fish key rings. I did orange and yellow ones then decided to do other colours.
 bright blue
 sea green
I'm doing a craft fair on Saturday to raise money for scouts locally. Hopefully they will sell well.

Pop by on Thursday as it's the MAWTT Challenge again.

Bye for now. x
