Tatty Twinkle

Hi Folks
Well I am here again, I have been really  enjoying myself  over the past few days
making all the cards that I have been to busy  to make
While I am waiting for my new Tatty Twinkle stamps to arrive, I though
I would colour this one from the last release.
I teamed it up with some of Tattered Lace dies from the Oriental collection
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and I will leave you in peace for a day or two now.

Good Afternoon Folks
I have another Christmas Card for you today using
the wonderful DVD  Snow & Ice, from
Pollyanna Pickering you can buy this from
This DVD is fast becoming my obsession lol
Have to tell you though this card turned out nothing like I planned lol
and still not sure about it.
I "might" be back with another one later, now is that a threat or a promise I wonder !!

Just because I have some time to spare

Hi Everyone
Well as the title suggest, I have not got any samples to make.
We have not got any Visitors this week and my cold has gone, so
I have plenty of time to spare and can craft for just ME
The card I have made is for my son & daughter in law's Wedding Anniversary.
It might seem an odd choice with all the black on it, but as their
wedding was at Halloween I thought it was very apt it is from
a CD  Wildlife by Pollyanna Pickering and this is the 1st time I have used it.
 I used Folder No.16

Thank you for visiting, it is much appreciated.
