Another Tatty Ted .............

Hi everyone, I have another Tatty Ted card to show you today.  I seem to keep using this pack everytime I have an order for a card. This is for my Nan to give to my mum as it is her Birthday next month. 

I decided at the last minute today to go to the Craft show at Thetford.  I only went for a couple of hours but I really enjoyed it and got some lovely goodies and I also meet one of facebook/blogging craft buddies Caroline which was really nice.  Thanks for coming and saying hello Caroline!

A Fizzy Moon Card

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.  I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself as I've been to the dentist today for a filling and my mouth is all numb.  I can't wait till my mouth is back to normal!

Anyway onto my card which I made a few weeks ago now for my mum's best friend.  I have used some Fizzy Moon decoupage for the image on this card.  The papers are Fizzy moon and SWALK. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

A Scrapbook Layout ...........

Hi everyone, I hope you have all had a great weekend.   I have a scrapbook layout to share with you tonight which I have made using a free kit from Scrapbook Magazine and lots of cutting on my wonderful e-craft machine from Crafter's Companion.    I cut my letters, flowers, swirls and bunting all on my e-craft machine which I love.  It's great for cards but as you can see from this layout it is also fantastic for scrapbook layouts too.   As the e-craft will cut all the fonts on your computer you never need worry about your titles again as you will have loads of fonts to choose from and it cuts them so perfectly! 

The pictures on my layouts are of my little Grace being made into a sand mermaid on the beach by her uncle and as you can see by the smile on her face Grace loved it! 

I am entering this layout into the following challenges:

Fancy a Nosey ?

Hi everyone and welcome to my new followers.  I wondered if you might like a look at my new craft room, if you are anything like me I love to have a nosey at other crafter's craft rooms and see what solutions they come up with for storage. 

My room had to be pink as this is my favourite colour.   I would like some of the storage to be a bit prettier but its difficult to get the balance between pretty and practical.  I think mine is more practical but I love having my own space and everything to hand.  Before this room was finished I used to craft on the dinning table which was no good when I was so tired and left everything out and then there was no where for my little girl Grace to eat her breakfast!

Anyway I hope you enjoy having a look at my craft room. 

Can you see my lovely speccies on my desk and my other new love which is my e-craft machine?  This is a lovely corner desk but I still manage to run out of space!

This is the other side of the room with my other desk which has my sizzix bigshot and paper trays.  The lovely colourful storage unit is from Hobbycraft and holds my A4 card.  This was a fantastic buy I only wish I could fit another one in the room but there is not enough floor space!

I had to share this picture with you of my fanastic teapot hanging line.  I can't take credit for finding this my friend Marianne came accross it and so I got one too, and it is great for hanging sketches on and info on my DT work for Crafter's Companion.

Well I hope you enjoyed the tour of my craft room, have a great weekend.

Winter Wonderland Challenge.........

Hi everyone, I have a Christmas card to share with you today for my DT card for Winter Wonderland and our theme for you this week as set by my DT buddy Suzi is White on White so we only want to see colour on your image.  I always come out in cold sweat at the thought of not using patterned paper but I am very pleased with the results I have achieved with this card and I really must make more of them! 

I have used a gorgeous snowman stamp for my card which I have coloured with fabby spectrum noir pens which are both from Crafter's Companion.  I just love the shading you can achieve with the spectrum noir pens.  

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
