Labrador & Robin - Pollyanna Pickering

Good Morning Crafters!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the daughter of friends.  They have a brown Labrador who she dotes on and loves to play with our Fergus, so I thought this would make a perfect card for her.  It's another fabulous image from Pollyanna Pickering and both, this topper sheet and the backing paper, were from Foil Play




The Merry Christmas die was a freebie with Papercrafter magazine.



I haven't quite managed to perfect the drop shadow on die cuts yet. 

As this is my last card for 2017 all that is left for me is to wish you all the best for 2018 and thank you for your support over the last year, and I would love it if you would continue to support me in the new year.

Not Quite a Newfie!

Good Morning Peeps!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.  This is the last day of our holiday in Scotland, this is my most favourite place and I shall be very sad to travel home tomorrow.  




Today I am sharing a card I made for friends in Denmark who have 3 Newfoundlands.  I had to go with this image of a dog pulling a tree on a sledge, this is something you can see the Newfoundlands do in various places, the closest one to us is at Elveden.  

I found the image, sentiment and papers in my stash.  The stamp is from the Woodware Sparkly Tress stamp set and stamped with Moonlight White Archival Brilliance ink.

Vintage Girl - Studiolight

Good Morning Peeps!

I am doing a little last minute packing as we are off to Scotland for Christmas, we have been before at this time of year but never for Christmas Day and I am so excited it's ridiculous, and of course I am hoping for a white Christmas! 

Today I am sharing a Christmas card made using elements from a Studiolight booklet that I picked up at Crafting Live Peterborough.

Studiolight is one of my favourite brands and I first fell in love with it when Carley Duff used it on Create and Craft along with the Noor! Design dies quite a few years ago now. There is something about the Dutch brands that I just can't resist.  

I have also used a script stamp from my stash and a Mixed Media stamp MM218 also from Studio Light with Jet Black Archival and Rich Cocoa Momento Inks.

Acid Drops & Whatnots - Christmas Dinner

Good Morning Crafters! 

Gosh another week over and we have a busy weekend ahead, tomorrow is the 3D day at Keep on Crafting, there will be drinks and nibbles, demos and 10% discount!  If you are in Bury St Edmunds do pop so we can wish you a Merry Christmas! On Sunday we are meeting up with friends so we can go for a walk with our dogs down to the beach, I love a festive beach walk. 

Here is today's card which is for my mum from my dad, it hints at a family joke!  



I have used a 7 x 7 base card and smooth glitter card from Keep on Crafting.  The sentiment is from the Woodware Yew and Holly stamp set using Picked Raspberry distress ink and the dots are made with Ranger Enamel Accents all from Keep on Crafting.

Pollyanna Pickering - Christmas Moments Spaniel and Land Rover

Good Morning Crafters

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We went to the Stratford Upon Avon Christmas Fayre which was beautiful, it had snowed and was very cold, so also felt very festive. 

Today I am sharing the Christmas card I made for my sister and her husband.  I purchased the topper sheet from Foil Play, it is a design by Pollyanna Pickering and comes with the backing paper and card.  



The observant amongst you will have noticed that the vehicle is a Land Rover and I have mentioned on more than one occasion that my brother-in-law is a LR enthusiast.  I was inspired to make this after seeing the print hanging in the holiday home we stayed in during my sister's Wedding, so it seemed very apt. 

The trees are a Noor! Design die which I have sponged with white gesso.

Crystal Art Christmas Owls card

Good Morning Crafters!

I thought I had almost finished my Christmas cards but as I was writing them realised I was a few short, so I made up one of the Crystal Art cards in super quick time which has helped get me back on track.  Just half a dozen left to make but mostly for family and friends I will be meeting up with so no need to worry about posting dates. 

I picked these cute Christmas owls which took me less than 20 minutes to complete. 


Creative Blessings.

Keep on Crafting Blog Makes 29th-30th Nov

Hello Crafters!

Not much planned for today apart from maybe a little gift wrapping for Christmas. 

As it's mid-week I'm sharing my makes for the Keep on Crafting shop blog from last week. 

First up is a Christmas bauble.  The bauble was an inexpensive one from the supermarket and was a set of 8.  I used the Katy Sue Designs Holly and Mistletoe mould, Pebeo acrylic paints and John Next Door sentiment stamp from Winter Trees. 



My next make uses the other half of my background from the mixed media time card and a topper from the Hunkydory Little Book of Woodland Wonder and Woodware stamps from the Being Positive set.

Elephant birthday card - Pollyanna Pickering

Good Morning Peeps!

I hope you had a good weekend.  Before the Christmas festivities really kick off there are a couple of birthdays.  the first one is my dad and it's his birthday today so no prizes for guessing that I'm sharing his birthday card!

I may have mentioned before that my dad's favourite animals are elephants and I think Pollyanna Pickering is the best artist of animals so I picked a few elephant topper sheets from Foil Play.  It took me a while to decide which to use but I finally settled on this one. 


The back papers are also from a Pollyanna Pickering paper kit.  The camera and film are dies by Noor! Design.
