Dad's birthday card

This is an attempt at steampunk, My dad likes steam trains, and hopefully i have captured the essence of both. I was worried it would end up a train card with toppers!

Barjan challenge.

This is my barjan challenge completed. We were given a 3 page mini book, and had to decorate and embelish it in anyway we wanted.
I chose to use my new "Me to You" bears stamps. I hope it meets the brief.

my advent calender

I saw a kiaser craft advent calender in a recent magazine, and this is my interpretation of it.

For craft club it was my turn to teach, and I came up with some door hangers for around the home.

The ladies all joined in and seemed to enjoy the evening.

where does time go?

If only i knew where time went to..... it has been a month since my last posting and i am sorry for that. Time this month has zipped past and with work being so horrid, i spend my days off  in states of catatonia! However  I have been crafting but just havent managed to get on line to up load it.
Anyhooo enough waffle....... more craft!

this is a leaving card for a colleague at work. I used Kanban stamps, they are very sweet.

I have been comissioned by a colleague to make some cards for Eid Mubarak. I had to ask her to be pretty prescriptive as to what she wanted, and I hope these do the job.

Have got the lurgy!

I've had the unfortunate missfortune to come down with coxsakie virus ( hand, foot and mouth!), catching it from a friends little girl, so I am off sick from work and confined to the house at the moment as its very contagious. I have tried to pass the time wisely by having a tidy up of my craft space and using up old supplies to make cards for cancer research........
they are made from old kits i would now never use myself, and instead of throwing away i put them to good use.
(24 cards in total).
I have also made some cards to sell at the loughborough do crafts meeting, proceeds going towards breath easy.

And today I have made some notelet sets for loughborough too, and hope someone takes a liking to them. I have used my scrap bag of bits of saved card and 3 sheets of  A3 card, so apart from hard work they have cost only pennies. I like my cottage cuts dies,  they look good each time.

As promised.

As i promised earlier, here are some of the other bits and pieces I have done in the last few weeks.
this is a pendant i made on our stamp and natter with maureen ( of maureens mixtures) and barry and anne. We dusted off the melting pot and had a play, great fun and love the out come.

I have also been making more jotters for the loughborough meet to go on the home produce table. Let me know what you think, and what i should charge. ( i think £1 ish ).

appologies for delay in updating my blog

applologies for the delay in not posting new projects to my blog, it isnt because i havent beeen crafting, it's because i cant find my camera! Grrrrrrrrr i annoy myself sometimes! never mind annoying anyone else!
this is a recent wedding card for a colleague at work, have my old camera on charge and will up load some more later.

shhhh dont tell him!

This is my dad's fathers day card I adapted from one I saw on the lilly of the valley site. The stamp is one of the new boy ranges and the papers are from my stash. I am hoping he likes it.

uploaded recent work

please forgive me uploading this on 2 sites, i have not got the hang of this yet!
these are 2 atc's i have made in preparation for loughorough 2011, I used gloss card, and cotton wool to blend the inks, and then stamped  using crafty individual trees and paperartsy birds.

This is my Easter challenge. I was out shopping i saw some cream egg boxes, and challenged Barjan to alter them. Mine is a mix of magnolia stamps and country companion flowers.
