A Mermaid Card ............


Hi all, just a quick post from me tonight before I head up the wooden hill to bed!  This is a card that I have made my niece Anya for her Birthday tomorrow.  She loves mermaids so I decided the new Lawn Fawn stamps would be perfect for her. I've used my favourite papers from LOTV, I can't get enough of these papers, they are just my favourite colours.   

Thanks so much for stopping by.

A Heart Room Plaque ..............


Hi all and happy Saturday to you!  I have another gift to share with you today that I made for one of Grace's friend's whose party she went to recently.  As her friend has an unusual name I thought she might not have anything like this and her mum was very pleased as she said they can never find anything with her Daughter's name on.   

I used an mdf heart for the base and covered it 2 layers of paper from Lili of the Valley.  I painted the edges in cream paint and distressed the edges of the inner heart.   The flowers are from the ribbon girl and I added some paint to the centre of them and sprinkled glitter on whilst it was still wet so the glitter then sticks nicely to the inside.   The leaf is a Joy die and one of my favourites at the moment, I love all the detail on it! 

I hope you have a nice Saturday planned.  Me and Grace are off to the village hall this morning as they have a Queens Birthday celebrate and there are craft stalls and cream teas so hopefully that will nice and then I'm off to a workshop at my local craft shop Sprinkle Twinkle this afternoon. 

Thanks for stopping by.
