Butterfly Dreams

Hello, here is a card I made for Sentimental Sundays challenge #51 Celebrate Spring / Easter. I have a thing about butterflies and normally use this Penny Black 'Butterly Edge' stamp for the back of my cards, but I wanted to create something with this image on the front. I've added Stickles black diamond for some bling on the wings of the butterflies, but it doesn't show too well on the picture. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.............. Hugs, Vicki x

I've made a very quick card for my Uncle John's birthday. Ideas for mens cards don't come easily to me, but I'm pleased with this! and I don't normally do such simple cards...

and the inside

Apologies for the darkness of the pics, just not enough light and the card look much better in real life!

Music Saves my Soul

Hope you've all had a fab week and enjoying the lovely sunshine we're having (for a few days!) My son, Lewis is a part time radio presenter, he played this song for me on his show this week and I'm loving it, I've been playing it all week - enjoy!

Magnolia madness!

Hello, hope everyone is keeping well and happy. I've been busy making a couple of Easter cards as well as some other Tilda images that I've been wanting to stamp up and just not got round to! (probably because I'm too busy blog hopping and looking at all the gorgeous cards on some fabulous blogs, there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.) I want to use some of my massive paper collection before I buy anymore - lol - I keep seeing lovely new papers that I just can't resist, so I have a lot of cards to make before I can let myself buy more papers - honest :)) I am going to buy some fancy dies that I saw on some gorgeous cards on Lydia's blog 'My Little Craft Haven' as they really made the images stand out. Hope you like my cards, I haven't found any challenges to enter them into yet! - that's what I'm doing next...............

That's all for now, thank you for stopping by. Hugs, Vicki x

Music Saves my Soul

Hello, hope everyone has had a good week and enjoying the weekend. I do my crafting in my conservatory as the light is really good in there, and today has been just the right light to do some colouring, I've made some cards and will post the during the next few days, I need to to look for some challenges to enter them into as well. This is just a quick post as I want to share this song by Adele with you that I'm loving at the moment, It's not dancey, but she has an amazing voice. Hope you like it too. Thank you for stopping by and for all your lovely comments. Enjoy.............................
