Good Afternoon!
Hubbies Christmas present from our Son, was a an  invitation for two
to have  meal and then watch the Footie! Afterwards to meet the players!
Okay! Not my kinda scene lol..Well the food is, but, sadly nothing else...So he's gone with his brother.
Gave me time to play.

I've been tidying my Craft room out this week and discovered my old sewing machine!
Believe it or not it worked straight away, hence I've stitched my card together, pleased it still works! 
This image came from Bugaboo Stamps and is called Blocks ~ Humming Bird
I've taken the Humming bird out of the image with and  replaced it with a sentiment. Think this image could be used for any occasion.
Coloured with Copics.. Lots of stickles on the tiny stars and a small pearl on five of the flowers.
Papers/Ribbon/Embellishments from stash.

Good Morning!
This card has been made a couple of weeks!
It was for our daughter who sometimes {but, not often} takes a peek at my blog..
Now I know if I'd have shown this one? She might have guessed it was for her, because it's 'To Someone Special' so that's what it says on the sentiment.

I know this is a Hangler Strangler stamp because someone sent it to me many moons ago and I've only just managed to part with her. 
Coloured with Copics..LOts of glitter on her little wings. I've used a Gelly Roll pen  on her hat/flowers....Papers/embellishments from stash.
The flowers and sentiment have been coloured with distress ink Spun Sugar.
Poppy, Spellbinder, Crafts Express and Kreaxions dies used.

Good Afternoon!
 Well there's not to much of the good.
We are having all kinda weathers here today, and boy is it cold..
Even the birds came early for their tea, sure sign that it's going to get worse later on.

Now this little sweetie is a digi from LOTV...
Coloured with Copics..I've had that drawer out again were the mosquito net lives. I'm sure it's not going down any still a push to get it back in, well worth the £5.00 in cost many moons ago.
I've used a Lawn Fawn edge die..Flowers are a Kreaxions die coloured with Distress Ink Peeled Paint. There's a little heart pin there too just under the small flowers, always bothered to use a pin when sending cards, but, the flowers will kept it covered.
