A Vintage Frame

Good morning, yay it's Friday again!
Here is my altered frame that I have made using the wonderful 'Vintage' stamp set from Hobby Art. I have accompanied it with a new stamp called 'Swallow Flight', which is just glorious!
The papers I have used are from Maja Design, I have used a Memento 'Rich Plum' inkpad to stamp up the elements and edge the frame.  Finished off with a little glass bottle, some white lace and little white pearls.
The lovely Jenny Mayes will be on Create & Craft this Monday, 29th @ 9am and 2pm, don't forget to join her! She will be showing off some wonderful new stamps and goodies.
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog today.

A Postcard Christmas

Good evening,
Am sharing a little card I made for the weekly 'Little Claire Likes' project over on their blog, HERE.
This week it is the turn of the 'Christmas Postcards' set of stamps, they are at a special price of £8.99 (normally £12.99) or whilst stocks last.
I have stamped lots of the postcards around the edge of my card, used some lush papers from Dovecraft, cream lace and a MS snowflake punch.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

A Wonderful Hobby Art Christmas

Good evening, hoping you have had a wonderful week?
Am sharing a little card I have made using some gorgeously new 'Hobby Art' stamps, that were recently launched by Jenny on Create & Craft.
This little beauty is called 'Robin on Wellies'.  The Ivy comes from a set called 'Christmas Flourishes' and the lovely sentiment from 'Christmas Sentiments' - love them all!  If you want to treat yourself to them, you can go straight to the website by clicking on the above link.
On my card today, I have used some gorgeous Dovecraft paper and have coloured in using my trusty 'Promarkers'.  There is also lots of 'Wink of Stella' in clear, if you can catch it in the light.
This little stamp is just right for some traditional Christmas cards and is lovely to colour in.
Have a lovely weekend,

My Birthday, Little Claire Autumn Sale and some crafty news

Hi there,
Been a bad blogger again this week.  I do have a couple of excuses.
I celebrated my big birthday on Monday, so was out seeing family, friends and drinking lots of Costa and eating lots of cake lol!
Then on Tuesday, I was treated to a day in London, lunch in a 1950's diner and then a visit to the Piccadilly Theatre to see 'The Jersey Boy's', oh my it was absolutely fantastic!
My girls even got me a 'Russian Doll' cake, especially made.  It tastes as good as it looks!

Changing Birdhouse Card

Good evening,

My card has been made using 'Changing Birdhouse' stamp set, which you can purchase at a special price for the website HERE, for only £6.99.

Snowflake Owl

Good morning,
Am sharing another brand new Christmas/Winter stamp from Little Claire.  The cute little 'Snowflake Owl' is so gorgeous, she even comes as a 'Dinky' stamp, if you prefer smaller images.
Here is my card using the larger image.  I think she looks like a girly owl, so hence my pink dotty paper and white/pink dotty ribbons.
The ribbons are from Little Claire, the card blanks and white poinsettia are from Hobbycraft.
Have a lovely day,
