♥ Joy ♥

Hi there ... continuing sharing my handmade tags which I am enjoying making and also great way to use up bits and pieces of cardstock which we all tend to gather and seems a shame to bin.
I love this particular die from Papertrey as it looks quite like a Christmas tree bauble, and I also love how my stitched circle die-mamics dies fit perfectly with this die.  The "Joy" word die is from Wplus9 and snowflake from Hero Arts.  Speaking of "snow" we had a little flurry of it today,  I think it's safe to say winter is definitely here.

Have a fab weekend and stay warm
hugs ♥♥

♥ Jingle bells Christmas tag ♥

Hi there .... very long time from I blogged.  I have been busy crocheting blankets over the last few months for Christmas presents, so my card making was "slightly" neglected.  So I decided to go through all embellishment I have hoarded (some for years!!) and sat at my craft desk creating Christmas tags.  I love how this one turned out and this is for my Mum :)
I used Kraft card from Papertrey cut out tag from Waltzing Mouse stitched tag dies (love these!)
and the bells I must have in my stash about 8 years ... LOL ,  can anyone else relate to this kind of "hoarding?"   The little reindeer is a wood embellishment, and I used L'il Inkers stitched banner die and Hero Arts Christmas tree die and a wooden star.

I am going to join in with Simon says stamp challenge ~ Christmas

I am looking forward to putting up our decorations in couple of weeks
Thanks for stopping by ♥

Hi there ... long time from I blogged.  Haven't been too well and I finally decided to teach myself to crochet.  this is something I have wanted to learn for years!!  So I have been following tutorials on Youtube and now I have loooooads of wool ... LOL ... I thought stamps were addictive ... haha!!
I crocheted these cute little baby slippers with bows and I am delighted how they turned out.
I used Drops Muskat yarn which has a lovely sheen to it, beautiful to work with and I shop at the Wool Warehouse, amazing!! service, the fastest delivery service ever and also comes packaged beautifully in a huge organza drawstring bag.

Its a beautiful day here

♥ Little hanging cushion ♥

Hi there :)   no cards today .  I got out all my sewing bits and bobs and made this little decorative hanging cushion.  I forgot I had this beautiful Tilda fabric that I bought ages ago in a sample pack off Ebay.  I made the rosette flower using elastic gingham ribbon and added a Tilda fabric brad as the button for centre and stitched two chunky felt leaves.  I hand stitched on the bobbin trim and the seam binding and also the buttons.  The buttons are also from Tilda (I am loving the Tilda range, soooo adorable! )  I actually won a little bundle of Tilda supplies a few years ago which included ... fabric, a bottle of pink buttons, 5 x rolls ribbon, a pack of appliques and fabric brads .... hoarding as usual .... LOL :)

Hope you are all doing well 
have a fab evening ♥

♥ Lawn Fawn ~ Thinking of you ♥

I recently bought myself some Lawn fawn stamps and I think they are sooooo adorable!!!  I love this set especially, called "chit chat" and I then bought the matching dies as I think they look nicer cut out with the matching dies, it gives them a lovely crisp finish.
I added a scallop stitched border from L'il Inkers using Avery Elle paper along the bottom ... very CAS and cute!

Have a fab day ♥

♥ City Crafter Challenge ~ Week 265 ~ tic TAG toe ♥

Hi there .... Something a little different from me today :)  .... Well I used to make shabby chic style cards, tags etc if you have followed me for years you will already know this.  I love this style just as much as CAS.  This gorgeous! paper is one I have hoarded ... LOL (we all have those paper pads?? ... don't we??) is Melissa Frances Fifth Ave and I adore this paper, don't even know if it is retired.
Anyhow I was browsing through challenge blogs and City Crafter's Challenge, is to make a tag or use a tag on your project.  So I got out a few of my shabby chic trimmings ... seam binding, jute, paper rose and pearl string and die cut a stitched tag from Waltzing Mouse and butterfly die from Memory box and a little silver puffy heart dangle embellishment that Mandy sent me years ago :) and this is what I created :)

Hope you all have a fab weekend ♥
