My Nail Varnish Box

Good Morning Everyone
 I hope you all had a lovely Christmas  we had a fabulous time with Family & Friends
I have been having a little break from crafting, blogging and Face Book, but,
I am now feeling the urge once more, so hope the creativity starts to flow.
I did manage to have a play with a box I have had for months which I wanted to use for
my collection of Nail Varnishes, mind they still don't all fit in lol.
I would like to wish all my friends a
Very Happy New Year
and hope it brings you all that you would wish for.
A big Thank You All for visiting my blog  throughout the 2104 it is very
much appreciated.
Hugs to you all

I finally took the plunge and used some of my Graph 45 papers,  used a mask and distressed
ink on them and embossed them with  Tattered Lace Embossing Folder and  added some
Pinflair Gilding wax.
One of the things I received for Christmas was a fancy Light Box, with lamps etc
so hopefully my photos will now improve.
I do hope you like it.

Snow & Ice DVD

Good Morning Everyone
Well yet again it is dark, dismal and wet here in Kendal
Hence the quality of the photos for my card
I have made another Christmas card from  
Pollyanna Pickering's
Snow & Ice, as you  know  this DVD  is a bit of an obsession with me at the moment  lol
This card is for my Son & Daughter in Law, the problem was
picking a folder to use as they would love them all, but as they
have rescued and Owl or two over the yrs thought this one was very apt.
I hope you like how I have used this amazing image

Here Comes the Girls

Good Afternoon All
From a very wet and miserable Kendal
I have just popped in with a quick little card I made
using an absolutely gorgeous digi image from
Here Comes the Girls CD from
Creative Crafting World unfortunately  this
CD is no longer available to buy
It is a very simple card ( as most of you know I don't do simple lol)
However, it was very difficult to photograph,
The acetate base was printed and then embossed and finally sprayed with pearl sparkle
 unfortunately the
printing was very pale and does not show up on the photo. but as I wanted
the image to take centre stage it is no problem really.
Thank you for visiting

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.
