The image I've used for my card is Winter Wonderland by Sugar Nellie. I got this stamp this morning from Lyndsey Marie's new shop "Lora Crafts" which is very near to where I live. So pleased that Lyndsey has been chosen to stock these fabulous stamps, well done Lyndsey.
Back to the card. I coloured the image with copics and cut it out with the nestie label die. The snowflake I cut on the cuttlebug and embossed the snowflake panel on the cuttlebug too. Getting plenty of use out of the cuttlebug today. Added two layers of card which were cut with a scalloped edge blade on my Woodware cutter. I added white glitter to the snowflake, scalloped borders and the little flakes on the image. The pearls, ribbon and trim are from stash and the greeting is Craftwork Cards from Lyndsey's shop.
Just off to the hospital now to see poor John. Do hope he's picked up a bit today.
Bye for now,
Love Pat x
Please check out all the DT members creations on the TT blog and more importantly please join in with the challenge. This week the Craft Barn are sponsoring us so you could win a £15 voucher to spend on their fantastic new look website. Why not check the site out by clicking the button on my sidebar.
I decided to make a tri-fold triangular card. The image, which I water coloured and highlighted with stickles, I downloaded from Elizabeth O Dulemba's site. I created the word in Wordart and the curling ribbons are from some I had left over from present wrapping last Christmas.
Do hope you'll join us this week and I look forward to checking out your creations.
Hugs, Pat xx

I've felt like a spare part all morning waiting for the doc and feeling helpless. Decided I'd cut out some snowflakes on the Cuttlebug so who knows I may get some chrissie cards done sometime soon, funny aren't I?
Sorry I haven't come on with some fantastic creation or some cheerful and interesting conversation but hopefully I'll be back in action soon.
Love, Pat xx

I've uploaded some of the cards I've made for the launch to give you a bit of a sneak preview. If you are busy watching Strictly or X Factor you might want to record the show or check out the C&C website beforehand.
Well hope you all have a good weekend, a great one for crafting as it's not too nice outside, well not here in the West Midlands.

I decided I had better get my act together this afternoon as it's my daughters wedding anniversary tomorrow and her birthday on Monday and I hadn't even got started on a card.
The first one is for her birthday. I decided I wouldn't use any DP but would stamp my own. The backing panel was made using distresss inks worn lipstick and milled lavender dabbed onto a craft sheet spritzed with water and the white card placed onto it. I then used a Crafty Individuals swirl stamp from the C1-235 set and stamped using the milled lavender. The main image panel was stamped using the swirls and a gorgeous art deco lady that I got from Gail at Circa Design, it only cost me 50p 'cause there is a little fault on it but I soon sorted that. I coloured the image very delicately using watercolours. The ribbon and gorgeous brad are from stash.
I decided not to put sentiments on either as I thought it would spoil the look.
Well that's it for the moment. Hope you have a good weekend.
Hugs, Pat xx

Looks quite tidy doesn't it? But oh what's this lot doing out on the landing!
Well as it's Tuesday it time for Tuesday Taggers challenge which this week is "Things that go bump in the night". I think this could be a bumper week for entries as I know so many people are into the Halloween theme at the moment. Should you need any inspiration please pop over and check out my fellow DT members creations, they are brilliant. Don't forget it doesn't have to be a card (although mine is), it can be anything you like, altered art, tag, atc, box whatever tickles your fancy. We'd really love you to join in.
Well here's mine.
The image and sentiment I got from my dear friend Linda. I won a fabulous folder from her full with Halloween images, so thank you once again Linda. You might like to check out Linda's blog as she's one very clever lady.
The papers are basic grey and I drew purple and green lines on the orange strip. The image is watercoloured and the pinafore is actually purple not blue, flippin camera!
Well better go and "tidy" up the craft room, looks like a bombs hit it, well you know what I mean don't you?
Love, Pat xx

Sorry I haven't been visiting any of you the last few days but I've been a bit under the weather with a cold and chest infection. I'm feeling a little better now so hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things in the next couple of days.
I just couldn't face even picking up the computer but I must be on the mend 'cause here I am.
I've got so many things to catch up on in the house and garden but I think I'll leave that for another day, again! and force myself out to spend some money. Just the thereapy I need.
Well I'll try and catch up with you all very soon.
Love Pat xx

For this one I printed a vellum wrap and edged it with MS doily punch. I coloured the image with copics and then put it though the bug with the swiss dots folder.
For the card base I printed onto printable pearl card from Crafters Companion and printed onto vellum for the top layer which is edged with the MS doily punch. I coloured the stamped image with copics and stamped the flower onto vellum, coloured it with whispers, embossed it and 3D layered it.
Made the base of this shadow box out of card from the printable card pack. The patterned paper is off the CD. Stamped images of tree, biscuit the dog and soufle the duck and coloured with copics. Snowflake is cuttlebug diecut.

Well at long last I've got a card to post. This one is for the Tuesday Taggers challenge which this week is Trees. The challenge is sonsored by the Craft Barn this week so there is a great incentive to join in. If you need inspiration pop over to the TT blog because the DT have some great creations on show.
I brayered the background using a Big & Juicy ink pad. The trees were stamped in black stazon using a stamp I got from Gail at Circa Design way back when. The fruit on the trees and the birds in the sky were added using a gold Sakura stadust pen. The DP is basic Grey and the tag was cut using a nestie die. Ribbon and greeting from stash.
Hope the rest of the weekend is good for you. I'm off to see Cliff again tonight, how much fun can a girl have?
Take care, & don't forget to tune into Create and Craft & Ideal World tomorrow afternoon between 2 & 4pm to see what goodies Sara from Crafters Companion has on offer.
Love, Pat xx
