Hobby Art 'Mae' Christmas Wreath

Ooo am slightly late in posting this, apologies one and all!
Have been very busy this week with Hobby Art Workshop makes and my classes over at The Craft Barn.
Here is my Hobby Art blog project using the gorgeous little fairy 'Mae'.  I have given her a Christmas feel by making her my central image for my little wreath. I have coloured her in using Promarker's and the flowers are made from some lovely cream pearl envelopes that I have just lying around.
Off to grab a large coffee and then back to the craft room.  Am starting my Christmas cards today, so hopefully I will be organised in time, fingers crossed X
Have a great weekend!

What If I Fall? Competition

Hi, am sharing a couple of my recent cards using the beautiful new stamp set - 'What if I fall?'
This little set is a new one from 'Little Claire'.  The DT have made some gorgeous cards, which you can go visit HERE.
My first card is in blue and pink tones and have gone mono using cream and black on my second.

'Little Claire' are running a competition where you could win this lovely little set, you just need to pop over to the blog and tell Gill and Steve what you are frightened of.
I am really scared of large brown spiders, deep water, heights and metal coat-hangers.  Yes, its a strange one, but I really don't like to touch them at all! I think I have this in common with the famous American actress Joan Crawford lol :)
Anyway, you have until Thursday, 27th November 2014 to enter, so good luck!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Am busy prepping for my classes at The Craft Barn tomorrow.  We will be making cards using acetate and gilding flakes.
Take care,

What if I fall? Stamp Set

Happy Friday to you!
Am sharing a couple of cards using a lovely new stamp set from Little Claire, called 'What if I fall?'. It is newly launched this week, along with some other images, my cards to follow.
Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love birds so this little image is so me!
Firstly, I have made a mono card, just cream & black, which I feel goes so well today.  Have teamed it up with some gorgeous paper from the 'Noir et Chic' paper stack, a lovely swirl, bird cage and bird die finish my card off.
My second is in turquoise, my favourite colour!  The little flowers are made of felt and the ribbon is some from Wilko's, a bargain at £1 per reel - ribbon heaven!

Anyway, do pop on over to the blog to see the newly launched stamps.  Go via HERE and if your not lucky enough to visit the NEC this week, like myself, go treat yourself to some bargains on the website.
Have a great weekend!

Little Claire November Club & Little Claire Likes Cards

Good afternoon, am sharing a couple of Little Claire makes today.
Firstly, a card using the new November club stamp - 'Little Elephants', its a cute little set for both adult and children's cards.

My first card is a quick and easy make. Just love this little image! Pop on over to the blog to see the other DT makes HERE.
My second card for the day is my 'Little Claire Likes' project using 'The Magic of Christmas' stamp set, which you can buy at a special price over on the blog HERE.
It has a secret sentiment part inside.

I have had a very busy but fun weekend! Firstly, on Saturday, I did my first demo at The Craft Barn, met lots of lovely new crafters and old friends.  Then yesterday, I went with my lovely friend Lindsay to the Sincerely Yours show at Tonbridge in Kent.  Managed to get everything on my 'Want' list plus more I just 'had' to buy lol.  Now playing catch up with housework, washing etc, it never ends!
There are still a couple of spaces left for my 'Star' & 'Slider' card classes at The Craft Barn on Friday, 14th November.  Do hope you can make them!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today, have a great day!
