I'm Back

Hi again folks!

Well I'm back from hollibobs, and what a brilliant time it was, with LOTS of sunshine and relaxing.
Can't really say I'm glad to back home as the weather here is flipping AWFUL and it is giving me severe post holiday blues lol!!!!

The weather is just typical bank holiday rain, rain and more rain so back to the craft room it has sent me.

Decided to just tinker around with a few different things and techniques. Got my Tim Holtz book out for some inspiration and decided to do some distress inking and eventually came up with a small tag sample.

I inked the base tag with distress inks 'vintage photo' and 'rusty hinge'. The centre piece was inked with 'spiced marmalade' and 'wild honey'. The very small label tag was inked with 'crushed olive'. I then just added some paper flowerd and gold glitter brads and a mustard coloured bow at the top. Oh yeah and I mustn't forget the small wire heart I made under the bottom flower.

Hope you like it.

Back to some more experimenting and practising. Speak to you all again soon, bye for now xx

Hi all,

Just wanted to let you all know I won't be doing much blogging for the next 2 weeks as I won't be near a computer as I'm off my hollibobs HOORAY!!!!!
Would love to take all my crafting gear with me but there just wouldn't be enough room in the car and hopefully the weather will be that nice I won't be moving too far from the beach, lol!!!!! Well one can dream anyway!
Keep on crafting and blogging folks and I will be back blogging after my lovely holiday full of inspiration and motivation.

Enjoy folks xx

Polka Doodles August Challenge Card No 3

Hi everyone. I've been busy crafting for the last 2 nights as I have got a special birthday coming up. My best friends twin daughters are 18 on Wednesday so wanted to make them a special card each. Perfect inspirational timing when Nikki at Polka Doodle Dandies announced a blog challenge. Well I decided to take up that challenge. I added two new cards (below) at long last to my blog, which has been neglected for quite a while, and I have now completed the final part of the challenge to use the Emma Canning digi image.
Well here are the 2 designs I came up with. Hope you like them.x

Come back soon and I will share some other craft projects I have been completing this last month.
Bye for now!!!

Polkadoodles August Challenge No 2

This card was created in June for my work colleague and friend who had just engaged. Thought it quite fitting for the Polkadooles August Challenge, celebrations all round for a great idea to get us all blogging and sharing are great creations and having pride in what we do.

Here it is, hope you like it as much as the recipient did.

Polkadoodles August Challenge

Well I am back!! Its been a long time since I blogged. I have been making and creating but never seem to get the time to update my blog.
Then along came the kick up the bum I needed. A challenge from Nikky Hall at the Polka Doodles FB page.
The challenge is to put 3 cards on to our blogs and one has to be using the Emma Canning Image from the team.
So here goes here is the first card, it was made in May for a work colleague of my husband who had just successfully got the job as the new headteacher at his school.

Hope you get the little twist............
