♥ Simon says stamp ~ anything goes ♥




A very modern CAS card from me today :)  tones in with my blog colours a bit :)
This is the first time I have used my new die-namics "hello" die (think there are around 5 in the set) Cut from kraft card and thought it looked nice against the cool minty chevron design paper from Echo Park and "5" .... enameled dots, also added a little stitched banner and i'm quite pleased how it all came together
I made this for Simon says stamp ~ anything goes challenge ♥

have a lovely week

♥ Let's craft and create ~ animal antics ♥


I'm  nearly a week late with my card for Let's Craft and Create, just having a hard week with my health.
This is a digi download from Etsy I bought quite a while ago and who doesn't like Winnie the Pooh :)  and of course little "piglet"
I machine stitched the printed download onto craft card and then just onto a regular white card.  I think this would look lovely framed


Enjoy your weekend

♥ Something to share ♥


Hi there ... :)  I haven't made a card in about 3 weeks, just been feeling a bit
poorly and have had to go through some more tests for my health. I shall not bore
you with the details, I just popped in to share something nice :)

My something "nice" I would like to share, is non-crafty related :)
I adore make-up and skincare, I have most of my life and the skincare I have
used for nearly 2 decades ... ooooh I feel old ... LOL  is called Decleor.
Anyhow I got chatting with the lady from Decleor in America on facebook, just by
leaving a comment on how much I loooved their products and the lady asked would I like to share my story ... I of course said "yes" and it was published on their blog last Friday.  If you would like to read it here is the link .. Skincare by Decleor  and I would love to hear your feedback.

I hope to get a card made soon as it's our challenge time again tomorrow over at Let's Craft and Create
