Hi everyone, what a miserable day, rain, rain and more rain. Never mind I'm off out with the girls tonight so I've something to look forward to, nice meal, drink and a good old natter, lovely.
This is a card I started yesterday and finished off this morning. The papers are an odd strip of Basic grey but can't remember which set, a piece of paper coloured with pearl paints and the doily I got when I went to NEC. The image is a Penny Black, cinnamon, watercoloured. The ribbon flower and brads are from stash. You might notice a little crease at the bottom corner as I dropped it after I'd finished it, how annoying.

The first one was made using the new Cute Summer Stories stamps by Jayne Nestorenko and Crafters Companion. She has made this to give to Jayne when we see her on Sunday as she will be demonstrating at Mountain Ash Crafts which is located at the craft village at Halfpenny Green, Bobbington, Shropshire.
The others are using some odd bits of decoupage sheets I had in a folder, a couple are Rock Hard Fairies and I'm not sure about the other one.
Thank you for visiting and do come back soon.
Love from Pat & Jessica xx

This is my entry to the Just Magnolia
challenge which requires us to use Pink & Green and of cause a gorgeous magnolia stamp
The base card is a deep green. The paper is from Cratwork Cards as is the embossed frame, sentiment and flowers, they came in a pack. I've coloured the embossing with a green inkpad. The gorgeous Tilda with lamb has been watercoloured. I know her top and also the brad and gem look bit yellow but they are infact pale green just doesn't show up well on photo.
Thank you so much Linda for giving me this award, I feel really proud to have received it. If you haven't visited Linda yet I suggest you do 'cause she is a lovely lady with a brilliant blog. I'd also like to thank you for visiting me on a regular basis Linda and leaving your kind comments.
I have already received this award and passed it on but I will display it again. Thank You
This is my entry this week for the Colour Create challenge. It's such a coincidence that I made this card a couple of days ago and it fits the bill, well just about.
I used some wrapping paper left over from my hubbies birthday present and the ribbon is from his birthday cake (waste not want not is my motto). The image is of course a penny black. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the flower from stash.
I'd love to hear what you think of it

Well for this one I used some black card as the base and the Dp is Dovecraft Fairy. The pink dotty paper, fairy decoupage, wording and flowers are all from a folder where I keep bits that I haven't got around to using. I'm really gonna try and incorporate more of these bits & bobs on my cards. Mind you it'll be a never ending task, cause I'm sure that as fast as I use some I'll be adding some.
I said at the beginning of this post that I'd just popped on but that was about 6 hours ago and I've finally got it done. Too many comings and goings here today but at last I've got peace and quiet.
Thanks for visiting me ,
Love. Pat xx

The cards are not my usual type of thing. I don't go much for diecuts and peeloffs as I always feel I've cheated if I haven't actually produced the main body of the card either by stamping or cutting, but heyho I did enjoy making these two quickies and they haven't turned out too bad.
I had a Laura Ashley Decoupage pack that had slipped into my basket at the Range a while ago, as they do. The pack includes diecut decoupage and some plain backing papers. I used some card from a Crafters Companion pack as the base card and scored it using the CC Ultimate Pro. I layered the decoupage onto a couple of Nesties made from some CC pearl card. I used the plain backing paper onto the back of the card and cut some borders using the Xcut border cutting system. I added ribbon and brad from stash & the sentiment from Craftwork cards(they are so usful). Actually having written this down I realise I did contribute a bit of effort into this.
This card is made using Daisy & Dandelion peeloff stickers that jumped into my basket the same time as the Laura Ashley. The base card is Bazzill bling (I do love this card). I made a nestie layer using satin silver card from another of CC's packs. I stuck one of the images onto some pearl card from my ever growing bit box and layered it onto the nestie. I added two peeloff ribbons from the pack to the side and another peeloff cake accent. The sentiment is yes you've got it a peel off from the pack. The brad i think is a Dovecraft and a couple of gems from stash.
I'm reasonably happy with the results and hope you like them
Have a good Sunday and let's hope the weather is kind to us 'cause I've got to cut the lawn, if I can find the energy.
Love, Pat xx

This is my creation:-
The stamped image is of course a Magnolia and it's been water coloured.
The base card is made from Bazzill bling
The circle paper is cut from a Papermania Designer cards pack that I bought cheap a while ago and although I wouldn't use them as cards thought they would be useful for matting.
The circle is cut from pearl card using the nesties
The flowers ares stamped (another bargain bin find) onto basic grey sugar paper & cut out.
Sentiment from Craftwork cards
Gems & fibres from stash
Thank you for visiting and I'd be delighted if you'd leave a comment that way I can visit you too.
Have a good day.

The bronze base card is made from some Crafters Companion card and the patterned paper is from CC Foral CD and is actually more yellow than it appears. The bunny image is a stamp I picked up in a bargain bin some time ago and I don't know who it's by. I coloured it using watercolour pens. The flowers are from stash.
I'll try to get back tomorrow with the Colour Create challenge creation if I can manage to fit it in. My son is moving into his first house tomorrow and my daughter is moving house on Wednesday so as you can imagine it's a bit hectic around here. I was round my daughters today helping her with some packing and I really don't envy her the move. Think I'll stay put where I am.
Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon.
Hugs, Pat xx
