Tiddly Inks Wryn-Heartfelt Love

Hi everyone
I was like a kid waiting to finish school today so I could play! I was clockwatching at work until it was time to pack away the work computer. Log out of emails. Open the Copics box (I work from home so this happened within minutes hehe) and away I went.
I just HAD to use another gorgeous Tiddly Ink image.
What!!! No Lace?? No Ribbons?? No Flowers??? Is this really my card! To be honest I thought the image really does the card justice itself with the string of hearts.
Image is Wryn-Heartfelt Love From Tiddly Inks.
I used a Be My Valentine chipboard from Make It Crafty.

Chasing Butterflies

Hi everyone 

Well, as promised I am going to keep up with my blogging this year. Here we are 4 days in and already 3 cards done! 2018 is off to a great crafting start. 

For today's card I have used yet another Saturated Canary image. Oh I do miss Krista's shop and images. I have a LOT of them but you can never have too many right?

Hi everyone

Happy New Year! 

I hope you all had a fantastic night last night and there weren't too many sore heads this morning. 

I have had a very relaxed, chilled day crafting while the kids do their own thing and hubby has been glued to football on TV all day. 

So here is my first card of 2018

Image - Wineoclock - Saturated Canary
'Celebrate' Chipboard - Make It Crafty

How cute is that little wine bottle charm!

Last Card of 2017

Hi everyone 

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. Are you all doing anything exciting for New Year tonight? I am off to my sisters for a big family party but before I go get ready I just wanted to quickly blog my last card of 2017. Looking back I haven't blogged that many cards this year and a few months ago I was seriously thinking of closing my blog down. Does anyone bother with blogs anymore. Then I thought about it and realised that I love my blog. I love looking back and seeing how my crafting has progressed through the years and all the memories that go with each and every card. So my New Years Resolution is to get back into what I love - crafting for me, not because I want to be like someone else or because I think I should be using XXX products because everyone else thinks they are cool. 

Anyway onto my last card of 2017. It was so nice to make a non-Christmas card and to get back out all the flowers and lace etc.  

The credit for the layout of this card goes to Kim Piggot. I saw Kim's card on Pinterest and loved the design. I asked Kim if she would mind me recreating the layout. You can see Kims card HERE. Thank you Kim. 

And here is mine 

Papers - Red Textures - Claire Tale  (I print with 50% opacity to make them more softer pink) 
All embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl 

Button Twine Pink 10 metres
Heart Clear Diamante with Side Loop Charm
Cheesecloth WHITE
Heart Pins Pale Pink Pk of 10
