Merry Christmas

 Its Christmas hooray
I love Christmas and always get a bit hyper :)
I am so looking forward to a great family Christmas hope you are too.
I have received this lovely Christmas card from my really good friend Judith and I thought it was so nice I have shared it with the Artful Times challenge.
And I must welcome Von back
and also welcome my blog land friend  Chrissie 
to the Artful Times DT crew 
also best wishes to Neet hope you feel better soon.
Judith made this card from a project in a popular magazine
and made a gorgeous job of it.
I haven't blogged much lately but not been resting on my laurel's
I have made this pram quilt for a lovely young couple
who have just had a baby girl.
Thanks for looking and you're lovely comments
they really do make a difference
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New year

A Cold n Frosty Die cut Tag

Hello everyone hope you all enjoyed a great weekend 
Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post 
and Suze it was so good to have your company on the naughty step LOL. X

I have been very busy as usual 
(actually I confess I am reading an excellent series of  books I cant put down Hee Hee) 

but did managed to fit in some precious crafting time :()

I wanted to join in with the Artful Times ladies, its Neet and Sam this week. 
Last one for Sam! so good luck to Sam :)
I also wanted to join in the Vintage Stamping Challenge a great DT and they are asking for Cold & Frosty

I choose to do a tag 

which I firstly gave a light wash of blues and pinks water colour paints 
stamped with a grey ink crackle effect and a turquoise text
die cut a centre panel in a gorgeous turquoise sparkle card I have has stashed for ages. 
The die cut leaves have been crackle stamped and the die cut rolled flower have been stamped dotty
there is also a small die sparkle swirl 
finished with mini tinsel and tiny icicle beads

Its a sparkly cold and frosty die cut stamped tag :)

Thank you for dropping by and taking time to comment I do appreciate it.

Have a great week

Silver and Lilac

Hello Hello 
I have been a very bad blogger :( just life getting the better of me
I have been AWOL since October and now suddenly its nearly Christmas phew
I have tried to make amends by joining in with the Artful Times (only just) challenge 
Neet is asking for a seasonal stamp using Silver and Lilac
I have painted the tag with a watery acrylic and then a pearlised wash for a silvery shimmer
The snowflakes (my seasonal stamp) are stamped and then heat embossed then gave another lilac swoosh
Stamped in a darker lilac a swirl 
Made die cut flowers, leaves added a silver swirl 
finished off with a frosty stickles
I must say I really enjoyed myself and shall get back into the zone :)
Thanks for looking and big hugs
