It was craft group again last Thursday and I was more productive than I have been for a while, I had to be really as it was Mum-in-laws birthday on Saturday and up till then I still had not made her a card.

So here's the card I made.

Papers are Basic Grey Kioshi and Bazzill Two scoops
Cardstock and ribbon are American Crafts
Sentiment is Craftwork Cards
Flowers and flourishes are Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms and Jewel flowers and flourishes, here's a close up

Thank you for visiting

Candle decorating

The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday  this month is for anything but a card and gave me the perfect opportunity to try out something I have been wanting to have a go at for a while.
So out came a candle, tissue and greaseproof paper, my heat gun, copics and the Whispers stamp from Penny Black and after a bit of trimming up with some paper, lace ribbon and pins this is the result.

Hope you like it and hope the person who may get it as a Christmas gift does too. There is a great tutorial on the Lili of the Valley site if you want to see how it is done.

A tiny bit digi

I was thinking about showing a bit of scrapping today but as I don't have any scrapping in my web album I thought I'd post this card which I made for Anne at our Brighouse Craft Group instead.
The image is one of the digi stamps from the Fabulous Fashion CD Rom coloured with Copics I think.
Papers are First edition
The swirl is the harrington vine from Simon Says Stamps

Ribbon and pearls are from the craft room shelves

I am hopefully going to have a bit of a session in the craft room today in between soting out the laundry, need to do a bit of experimenting I think :-D
