Hello. This is a bit bold don't you think? At first I wasn't sure, but it's growing on me! The stamp and butterfly die is by Waffle Flower ' enveloper little birdie'. I coloured using my ZIg Real Brush markers.

I am entering my card into the challenge over at Creative Inspirations - Autumn/Halloween.

beaded snowflakes

Hello. At my monthly Craftaholics meeting I made these! Three new snowflake decorations for my tree. Surprisingly quick and easy once you know how, my demonstrator did a wonderful job of teaching me!

Next month it's felted angels, can't wait. Will let you know how I get on!

magazine article

Have you seen this on the shelves? It's a bumper boxed kit packed with inspiration for Christmas. As well as the magazine, which includes my article on shaker cards, you get loads of crafty goodies. An A4 stamp set, 7 dies, an embossing folder and loads of papers.

Did I Miss the Cake?

Hello. By the look on the little bears face he certainly did miss the cake! The stamp set is 'Friends for All Seasons - Fall' by Wplus9. I bought it (and another, but more of that later) with the voucher I won over at the Seven Hills Crafts monthly challenge.

So, it seems only right and proper that I should enter this card into their new challenge which is a fabby sketch....

More Memories - part three

Hello. I've been busy adding a few more pages to my Simple Stories Sn@p Album. 
This time featuring a cottage break in Alston and a two night break in Alnmouth.

A day trip to Hexham, and yes, that's me in the stocks! 
Punishment for spending too much time in the craft shop!!

A blackboard sign outside a cheese shop - 

Sweet dreams are made of cheese
Who am I to diss a Brie
I Cheddar the world and the Feta cheese
Everybody's looking for Stilton

Our lucky greyhound Boyd was left treats by the house dog when we spent a very relaxing two days at the St Valery. A boutique B&B in Alnmouth. 
I can totally recommend a stay here, very luxurious.

You can read parts one and two of my memory keeping blog posts here and here.
