Can I Come Up With Anything Crafty?

Well, it certainly has been a while...

I have still be dabbling in craft but did quite a stint in baking after realising that Jo Wheatley's recipes worked for me .
As this caused massive weight gain I have ditched the baking for a while, although I did buy a mini muffin tray the other week! :)

I am trying to get some kind of crafting mojo back, whether  I succeed or not remains to be seen. As usual my efforts good or bad will be posted...

Take care,

Having a Go at...

Jewellery making! Since seeing Jewellerymaker on tv I thought I would give it a go. I didn't make one single Christmas card this/ last year despite buying in stamps to do them (may get started on them this summer, lol).

This is my latest effort in making a jewellery set, beads used are Jade rounds, Sage amethyst nuggets and mystic quartz rounds.

Bye for now

Simon Says Stamp And Show - Numbers

Hi All

Sorry I haven't been getting around to your blogs to see all of your wonderful pieces. My computer has been down for the last couple of weeks and trying to get any time on the one downstairs is a real struggle between my daughters and husband I don't really stand a chance, lol.

So while everyone is otherwise engaged I just wanted to show my piece for Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge - Use Your Numbers.

I have this made this card using my TH stamp and die, TSS mould (Thanks Dan you made me think of this), a resin key I made and LLB paper.

Thanks for looking, apologies is I don't manage to make any comments before I get booted off here.

Take Care

Simon Says Stamp And Show - Distressed/Sanded

Morning ! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little brother Kern!
This is the card I am entering for SSSS challenge and it has more distress than you will know, mainly because I snipped my finger with my micro serated scissors instead of the ribbon... OUCH! That really hurts! (notice how I didn't go back to even the ribbon up).
My image is another homemade stamp using my stampmaker and another copyright free image. I used lots of distress inks to grubby up around the edges as well as THOSE scissors to roughen the edges too. I used K&Co brads cut in half for the corners of the topper and inked around the card with chalk ink.
Lol, I forgot to mention the distressed balloon, made in error, peel off balloon outline stuck to glitter vinyl and heat gunned.

Well that's it! Thanks for looking.

Take care

'Stamp' tember blog hop

What a great challenge this is... Simon Says stamp and Show have teamed up with Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog for a blog hop. The theme is holiday fun, you choose which holiday.
Mine is halloween i loved making this card, because the stamp i made myself with Teresa Collins stampmaker and a copyright free image. Cobwebs, I haven't drawn them since i was at high school. Also it involved slooshing lots of paint, ink and perfect pearls.
I'm off to blog hop now...

Thanks for looking

Take care

Simon Says Stamp and Show - Use Your layers Challenge

What a rush! My entry for the above challenge is not what I intended at all! BUT I didn't want to miss the challege altogether so here it is... Sadly the only layers I could manage were the butterflies and the flower. Can you see them? I hope so. Monochrome probably wasn't the best way to go with this.

Apologies to the terrific design team, your pieces were all fantastic.

Thanks for looking
