♥ Sweet little shabby chic crochet hanging ornaments ♥

Hi there ... what a beautiful day it is here in Northern Ireland :)  I do hope the weather is great were you are.  I am getting back into my love of shabby chic creating,  I didn't realise just how much I missed it and now that I have learned to crochet I am loving combining my paper crafting with my crocheting  My friend custom ordered these for a birthday gift for her friend and I was super excited to make them for her.
I crocheted around the paper {I found an old cuttlebug die that has a circle with holes pierced round it and it is perfect!! for this technique} and I used Melissa Frances 5th Ave paper, beautiful pink paper roses, pearl trim and pearl hearts and beautiful seam binding.  I must make myself one as I love how they turned out. The butterfly is cut from a Papertrey ink die.

Have a blessed weekend ♥

♥ Simon says stamp ~ anything goes ♥

Hi there ... just a quick post to share a cute 3 x 3 notecard I made using up my stash :)  you would not believe how old this sticker is ... LOL ... it's from K & Co, bought it years ago.
The gorgeous background paper is one of my all time favourites (I hoard it) Melissa Frances 5th Ave.
I so enjoy making these tiny cards, great to have on hand and also to use up those little bits of paper we cannot bin .. LOL

♥ CAS butterfly card ♥

Hi there, I made this card a few weeks back using some new crafty goodies I bought.  Very clean and simple design.  The embossed background is the weathered embossing folder from Taylored Expressions .... the gorgeous paper I cut out the butterfly from is from My Minds Eye on trend 2 collection ... stunning paper!!
The celebrate is cut from a Waffle Flower die (love the font)  The tiny heart in centre of butterfly is from a Paper Smooches set.

Hope you are all having a great Monday

♥ Mr & Mrs ♥

Hi there ... two posts in one week ... LOL ... on a roll :)   I made this card for our niece who is getting married this year and I love how it turned out, a lovely soft shabby chic design.
The little bird cage is a wood veneer piece and I added a ribbon bow and lace, mulberry flower and at either side of the flower I added two heart pearl embellishments.  The background paper is a new paper pad I got, its from Lemoncraft ~ House of Roses , absolutely gorgeous paper and it is quite a heavy weight paper, definitely buying more! :)

Have a blessed week ♥

♥ Crocheted hair clips ♥

Just popping in to say hi and to show you all what I have been making :)   I'm in a crocheting mood at the moment, once I start I cannot put the crochet hook down .... LOL
I have been making these cute little hair clips crocheting little flowers and adding a little pearl.
I am delighted how they turned out.  They would make perfect little gifts for any age, I would wear them myself.  I also have hearts ready to make some more.

Hope you are all doing well
Blessings!! ♥
