Well did you all have a lovely Christmas? The time seems to go so fast but we had a lovely day. I had lots of lovely goodies including a melting pot, so watch this space for some different creations next year. Just thought I'd show you all what i made as a gift for the girls at the Bristol meet, i decorated them each their initial. Put them all in my craft room and took a photo. The individual one was for Sophie, this wasn't included in the other  photo as she was coming to lunch on Christmas day i was later finishing it.
Happy New Year to you all.

Stamp N Craft Design Team......

Good Morning
Well today is the first day for the Stamp N Craft design team, of which I'm proud to say I am part of. The lovely Beth has 6 of us on her team and each of us will be showcasing our card or project on one day of the week, mine is Wednesday so watch this space.
For the first project we all used the same stamp set, the lovely Chocolate Baroque Harlequine Christmas Set which can be found at Stamp n craft along with lots of other fab craft goodies.
So to my card a very simple christmas card as i think when you have so many to make you sometimes just need something easy. I stamped the bauble straight onto my white card, then masked it off and stamped
 another either side. I used Tim Holtz distressed inks, in Barn Door, Peeled Paint and Broken China these can be found  here. I then put  different colour pearls as a hanging on each bauble along with a bow. Then i stamped a Happy Christmas using the 3 colour distressed inks. Simple!!
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Don't forget to check out the other girl blogs Here and pop back on Wednesday to see my next design card.

Inspired by Craft Stamper Mag

Good Morning Well home again today resting lol Yesterday i felt like crafting for the first time in ages, and was insprired by the lovely Hel's in the Craft Stamper mag. The blue card is avery similar to hel's card the green is my take on it. This was the first time i'd used my TH distressed pens and to be honest if i'd read the magazine first i would have used different paper and not the paper i'd used lol but never mind i was really pleased with the result. I will defo be using them again. Have a great day. Thanks for leaving the comments i will be catching up later. Hugs Sandra x

Well i never!

At long last i'm putting something on my blog. Have been feeling a bit under the weather lately, the docter said it is a virus which usually means they can't find anything elsa and i needed to rest. So i'm on the way up i think. fingers crossed. Anyhow enough there reason for today's post is to put on the little box that i was making over and not got round to finishing. I have put in the little photo of it when i bought it from the boot sale but stupidly i forgot to take one before the make over began. Its so cute, not decided how to decorate but have finished the basics. Painted black, used Graphic 45 papers and black soot distressed ink to ink edges. Tim Holts feet and corners. Hope your all well. Thanks if you manage to leave a comment, i will return the favour. Hugs Sandra xx
