Beccy's Place - Country Floral Digital image set

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors 

How has your weekend been? On Saturday we had a trip to our local garden centre. We had a coffee there and we picked up some supplies. As the weather was nice we spent the afternoon cleaning and oiling a garden table we had been given.  On Sunday we had a trip to see our daughter and son-in-law we took them some supplies for packing. We are all hoping they are going to move soon. 

I am one of the Blog Contributors for Beccy's Place. Which means that I get some truly gorgeous images to work with. The one I am show casing now is the Encore Set Country Floral. The images are just so pretty. I am featured on Beccy's Blog today click HERE to see my makes there


The papers were in my stash. 


This is the Country Floral Digital Stamp set and it is available HERE. There are pre-coloured images and line art in the set. 


I used the oval with the flowers. I coloured the flowers with my Prismacolor pencils. Once the image was coloured I fussy cut it. 


This sentiment added nicely inside the oval. 


I coloured the ladybird and then I cut is out. I added the antennae with a Micron pen my cutting out isn't that good.  


I made a cute little tag too. The ladybirds look good in different colours. 


I really did enjoy using this set. I think I will turn to this set often.

Have a good week.

Super Cute Christmas card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? We have had a relatively quiet week that has been nice. I heard the other day that there won't be any invigilating in November. To be honest I am quiet relieved I had no idea how they would make it safe for us and the students. My hubby, daughter and son-in-law are all still working from home. There is no news on a Moving Date for our daughter and son-in-law. I do hope they hear something soon. I want my spare room back. 

Every month I like to join in with the Rudolph Days Challenge it runs from the 25th until the end of the month. I have done this for a few years now. I do like to make Christmas cards all year round. 


The patterned papers I used were in my stash. 


This is an image from Di's Digi stamps it was free in the Kit and Clowder colouring ground a few weeks ago. The cute image was coloured with my Polychromo pencils. The image and the mats were cut with my Double Pierced Rectangles from Creative Expressions. 


That is another Christmas card for my stash. I now have about 90 Christmas cards. This year I am not sure how many I will need.

Have a great weekend.

A Little Note

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? This a a quiet week for us. Later I will be colouring along with Barbara Gray. She has cut her sessions down to three times a week. I must admit this helps a lot as I was getting behind with things I should be doing. I really appreciate those sessions though and I can't believe what I have learnt. 

Way back at the beginning of lockdown I joined the Clarity Stamp die of the month subscription. I have been very pleased with the dies I have received. I made this card with the last month's die. 


In the background I have used one of the Clarity Designer papers. I am not good with the names I have a few pads of the papers and I usually hunt through until I find a colour combination that is right for my project. 


This is what the die looks like when is it cut. I did make a drop shadow for each die cut. The seed heads round about were snipped from the frame. I do like playing around with dies to get different effect.  


This was cut from a sentiment die from one of the other months. 


I was rather pleased with this design I do love that die it is gorgeous.

Anniversary Card for our very good Friends

 Hello My Craft Blog Friends and Visitors 

How was your weekend? On Saturday we had friends round for tea and cake in the garden. On Sunday we went to see our daughter and son-in-law's new house. It is a new build so it meant going to a building site. The house is very nearly complete so hopefully they will get a moving date soon. We are going to help them on moving day but we don't know when that is yet. 

In July our good friends have their birthdays and anniversary very close together. This is the anniversary card I made for them. 


I used some of my Claritystamp Designer papers. 


This Clarity Fresh Cut die is called Panoramic Vista it is an aperture die.  


This is a Signature die. 


I had bits left over after making this card. So I made a smaller version without a sentiment. It was one of the first ones to sell in the sale a few weeks ago.

Have a great week,

Forest Scene Christmas Card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been? The weather has been lovely. We have spent a lot of time in the garden again. It is good to make the most of it while the weather is so nice. 

I treated myself to three die set from the  new Christmas release from the John Next Door range. They are: Jane's Tree, Sam's Circles and Christmas Time. I used dies from all three of the sets to make this card. 


I used the background die from the Sam's Circles die set. It does cut very nicely.


The scene come with the Sam's Circles die set. The holly wreath was made with dies from the Christmas Time die set. 


 The sentiment came from the Jane's Tree die set. 


We had some good news on Wednesday. Rosie our cow, who lives in France with Katie and Sven, had a calf. Both are doing well. We do like having a cow thought we have never met her. If we can travel next year we might go and stay on the farm. 


I am so pleased I treated myself. All the die sets I bought work so well together. I am looking forward to having another play with them I can see lots of possibilities.

Have a great weekend

Congratulations on your Wedding Card

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you are all well and enjoying the sunny weather we are having. We have been making iced lattes they are very nice. The coffee machine was a good investment. 

Last week we went to the wedding of one of our good friends. Sadly his first wife died four years ago. We had all known each other for years. Even with all the restrictions the wedding was lovely. We had refreshments in the grounds of the church after the weather was perfect. We are so pleased that they have found each other. 


I used the Heart Lattice embossing folder in the background. I also added a selection of dies. 


This is an image drawn by our daughter. It was so lovely to be able to make such a personalised card. 


Here is one of the pictures from the wedding. They look so happy together. 


As I had the images I was able to make a matching tag for their small gift. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

A bit More Time to Craft Challenge blog - Challenge 124 - Anything Goes

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? My hubby has a couple of days off. Today we have the excitement of getting our eyes tested. I noticed a significant difference with my eyes so the time is right. 

Today Challenge 174 starts at the A Bit More Time to Craft Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes and there are fantastic digi papers on offer as prizes. 


 I used the Gingham papers for my creation. 


Our challenges are lots of fun. Click on the logo and you will be taken to the challenge blog


Some time ago I treated myself to a magazine that had a Flower Fairy paper collection.
The tags were left over from the kit so I decided to put them together to make a card. 


This is a Crafter's Companion die. 


My mother-in-law loves the flower fairies. I might just save this until next year for her. By then I might well have made her something else she is a very special lady. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting
