Happy Birthday Alex



Can you believe it my only grandson was 11 on Wednesday and who forgot to take a photo of his card before posting!!! Yeh, just knew you would be disappointed not to see it so I made another which is very similar. Made Alex a T slider card …. in his card I added a photo to the middle so when he pulled the slider it revealed his picture, cool eh. Used Timmy’s inks and also black embossing powder for the edges.

Image used is from Phindy’s Place called connected boy, you can find him here.

I Feel Pretty



Inspired by a song is our theme this week at Sentimental Sundays challenge and this delightful image called Grande Dame made me think of the song from West Side Story

I feel pretty, oh so pretty, I feel pretty and witty and bright, and I pity any girl who isn’t me tonight

Take a stroll over to the challenge and see all the beautiful creations from the other DT’s, see if you can spot what their songs are …. while there check out the prizes you can win when you enter and the freebie this week is fabulous. Nearly forgot to mention the easy part your card has to have a sentiment on it, can’t wait to visit and see all your projects.

I was sooooo engrossed in making this card …. so pleased with how it was turning out …. totally concentrating on what I was doing, that I ended up making a teensy teensy little mistake with it …. well, it was a whopping mistake really …. pop back later today …. when I will be showing my granddaughter’s Christmas card …. and all will be revealed … then after you have stopped laughing please tell me if you too have ever done this. Unless any eagle eyed person can guess what I did before I post????

If anyone can tell me what I did wrong …. before I post ….I will send you this card for being so clever. OK a little hint for you, there is nothing wrong with the actual card itself, it is what I was going to do with the card, but couldn’t, because of what I did wrong …

My adorable image is from Phindy’s Place …. entering her into their challenge this week which is to use one of their creatures. Grande Dame is adorable, coloured with water colours, flocked her dress around the edges, added loads of micro beads and a little bit of cotton wool for her powder puff. The inside sentiment on the tag is a rub-on.

Scarlet’s Letter



Basic Grey and digi whoo hoo …. Scarlet Letter was one of the paper pads that I never managed to get over the years but now I have it forever in digi.

Off home to see the grandkiddies today (4 months since I have seen them), because they are still at school I am having a crafting day with Irene and Diane tomorrow. Made lots of tags so I can colour them in but had to keep them safe so made this book … (wallet really but too many letters for the tag). The book is made from the Scarlet Letter digi papers and all the embellies on the tags are from the kit as well, buttons and brads look so real will be adding the cotton later.

Three of the tags have images which I stamped and then scanned (you can just see a peak of the new stamps from docrafts it’s from the Nostalgia collection called Rainy Day oh so delish) but all the rest are digi images from various shops. Tags are 13.5cm in length (5.5 inches) and the book is 15cm (5.14 inches).

Had to colour at least one of them so chose an image from Phindy’s Place called Romantic Moment …. ahh …. Grande Dame is another of her images and couldn’t resist adding sentiments. Watch out for the image called …. Mrs Comfy crafting …. on my to do list. Ribbon will be added later to the tags.

A big big sorry girls but not sure what has been happening with the Crafty Angels Challenge blog since 7th June. Week 39 challenge for In Vogue Papers didn’t get posted, week 40 not mentioned, week 41 only posted the day before which was too late for me to make my DT card but this week we are back on track yippee.

Crafty Angels Challenge today want to see some red and black on your projects, Laura set the challenge which really went well with my new kit …. must be some kind of telepathy because I could not have chosen better. She has been having a painting session with the colour red, it all sounds really yummy.

Take care and I will be back in one week.
