May this birthday...

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.

Still not 100% over this awful flu bug that has been going around. I just wish this cough would go away and not wake me up. I can't tell you the last time I had a decent nights sleep!

Today I have a birthday card to share using my new Mosaic Stencil from Linda Simpson Designs and one of the new stamps New Beginnings from Stamps by Me


Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square scalloped edge base card.
2. Matted and layered fuchsia pink card.
3. Matted and layered the background which was created using the Mosaic stencil and colour bursts.
4. Stamped the laminate part of the stamp with Fuchsia and green Generation INX.
5. I then stamped the outline and sentiment with  Versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fantastic Birthday

Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all today!

I have got a very busy day here today catching up on admin and some crafting to do.

Yesterday I received an email from You Tube that they are taking away my monetisation unless I reach 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of viewing by 20th February 2018.

I have put this on my Facebook profile but would love it if my blogging friends would help me by subscribing to my channel and watching at least one of my videos. I am 1036 hours short and this would help me such a great deal. I have worked really hard in providing tutorials and how to videos for my crafting friends and would appreciate it if you could all help me. Here is the link to my You Tube Channel!

Many thanks in advance for your support as I couldn't do it without you!

Today sharing a vintage card with you.


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white square scalloped edge base card.
2. Matted and layered yellow card and patterned paper from LOTV beach bliss paper pack.
3. Matted and layered yellow card and mulberry paper which I have distressed with weathered wood.
4. Matted and layered image onto yellow card.
5. To finish off added the sentiment and made a double bow with yellow organza ribbon and added a gold butterfly to the centre.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
