Pollyanna Pickering...

Hi Folks,

Im here today after a busy week, not sure what I've been up too though but the days seem to have vanished!!! 

I have made a few wee cards for the new Pollyanna Pickering DVD which is launching from Creative Crafting World on Sunday and Monday over on Create and Craft TV. Show Times are below.

Now I have said before I haven't really been one to do CD/DVD crafting. I have such a huge hoard of papers that I haven't done much in the way of it. I do love it though. I really like the fact that you can just nip to the computer and print out a piece of paper that's just right instead of spending hours in my cupboard looking for the one piece that I cant find!!! 

So here is my first card. I will have a few over the weekend. This one features an amazing wolf. Its an 8 x 8 card made using white card and die cuts from my ever expanding stash. 

I would like to thank my Dad for the generous use of his printer over the last few days. Mine is terrible and only likes printing black and white images. I think I am going to have to work out how to get a new one!!! 

Thanks for dropping by,

Love and Sparkles,

Ive already been up for ages and watched the 1st of Lynda Chapman shows on Create and Craft showing off the lovely Forest Friends kit from Creative Crafting World. 

Ive made this wee card using the 9.5cm x 9.5cm cards making them into a dinky easel card and using elements from the kit. I punched some wee snowflakes too just for a festive feel.

Lyndas Black Card...

Hi Folks,

Im back again with some cards I've made using the latest collection from the Paper Boutique Range from Creative Crafting World.   The Collection is called Summer Blooms and is all in shades of pinks. 

Now I have titled my post Lyndas Black Card as I have a wee addiction to this wonderful stuff.  In my opinion its the best black cardstock on the market!!! The black is a true black and the core is black too. It cuts and is fantastic thought a die cutter and I use it on loads of my makes these days!!! I have just used a little here as I dont think the collection is really one for a huge amount of black but it just finishes off this topper and adds an elegant touch to it.  You can buy the card here. You honestly won't be disappointed!!! 
(Ive not been paid to say this. Its my opinion)
