Snow flakes

Good morning everyone what a beautiful start to the weekend. The sun is shinning here in London. I am off to try and do some Christmas shopping in a minute so to get me into the spirit of things I had on a Christmas CD which my husband promptly took off and said it was far too early.  What a killjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Teddy Bea Christmas card to share with you today. i have used one of my much awaited memory box dies and they only arrived yesterday.


The papers were a complete bargain, I found them in the clearance bin reduced from £7.99 the stack to £2.99. They are by Dovecraft. The card it's self is an easel cut from a piece of A4 white card stock in 380gm.

Lots and lots of embellishments on this one. A Sizzix die was used for the large snowflake, the snow flake boarder is of course Memory Box (I love how they look so delicate). Oval nesties have been used for the image base which has then been matted onto a scalloped oval nestie in kaleidoscopic silver. The small snow flakes are…

Good afternoon every one.  Friday is finally here and I can have a nice lay in in the morning.

Just a quick post as I am off to visit my mum and should have left already.

I have an Edwin card I want to share today. He has only ever been stamped once before and I thought that it was about time he came out of the draw to play.


I have used the sketch from the Just Magnolia challenge last week.  The paper are all My Minds Eye Complete boy. 

I have used quite a collection of Magnolia stamps for this one and they are: Old oak tree Edwin on bike Butterfly background Magnolia ticket stamp
I then spent a good few hours colouring this lot in and cutting out. the tree took me ages with a scalpel.

Challenges I would like to enter: Simply Magnolia - Anything goes 2 Sisters Challenge blog - Anything goes
Hope you like it  Jayne x

Hang me out to dry

Good evening everyone. Where did the weekend go. My husband and son went of to do boy things over the weekend and I tried unsuccessfully to get some Christmas shopping done but it didn't work and I came home empty handed. I really must try harder!!!

Any way the card that I would like to share today has been one of those on off projects that I cant quite make up my mind about. Take a look and let me know what you think.


I have used the The First edition Summer Breeze papers on this project which I think work quite nicely with the image. The base is from Craftwork Cards and is a 6inch in scalloped square  (sorry i'm still in yards and inches).
The image is a Gorgous girl stamp called Hang me out to dry which I bought from the Glitter pot.

The roses I made using a Marianne die and some pearls. The cute little metal corners are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the gathered ribbon is by Tim Holtz and bought from Sugar and Spice.
Please don't look too closely at the bunting as I cut this …

Sweet Christmas

Good evening everyone.

I am so sorry I have been such a terrible blogger that I haven't been anywhere near a blog in well over a week. My intentions are always good but there doesn't seems to be enough hours in the day. My family always seem to need me for something just as I am about to sit down and craft so I am afraid I just gave up!!!.

The card I want to share has taken me over a week to complete I am ashamed to say. I really must get my act together.....


I think with this card I just opened the craft draw and threw every thing at it and then sat back to see what had happened. i think I may have to call this a clutter card.

The papers for this one are Lost and found Christmas by My Minds eye. I have to say this is definitely one of my new  favorites.  you cant quite see from this photo but it is an easel card cut from white card stock.  (not that you can much of the base card anymore)

I don't have the Magnolia tree doohickey so I trawled through my Cricut cartridges and cam…
