A trickle of inspiration

Well it isn't much but I have had some inspiration over the past few days, a little help from my crafting friends at Creative Minds Craft Group
Elke and Sylvia, Thanks Ladies you have been a big help.
Last week we were playing with inks and I made quite a few backgrounds with inks and water.

Then this week I was determined to make at
least 1 card but instead I made 6!
Yes they are only small 4" x 4" but they are still cards.
I was really happy with them but some need finishing off a little.

and I just had to share this photo as although I didn't really enjoy the snow Oscar did..

Hope you have a good day.

Dabbler's Birthdays

I thought a good way to get my mojo flowing would be to join the birthday list for Dabblers, you send everyone on the list a card on their birthday and then when it is your birthday, everyone on the list sends you one. It is really amazing to see all the different styles of cards that come through your door and makes it all worth while. I have sent cards to Pauline, Elvie, Lesley and Liz this month hope you all had a good day ladies. Here are the cards I made but apologies as I cannot remember who I sent which card. 



I used the free papers and toppers from the latest issue of Making Cards, my aim this year, to use up some of the many editions I have and actually make them into cards.
 Hope you like them.

Happy New Year

I know it is a little late, but better late than never. Well Christmas is now just a memory and a hole in my bank account but don't want to dwell on that have got Christmas this year to save for. Hope you all had a good one though, I did, nice and quiet, spent with family. I have made a few resolutions for this year, I won't go into too much detail but one of them is to do more crafting and keep my blog up to date, I want my mojo to stick around this year and it seems to be flowing at the moment. I have so much stuff that I am going to use up as much as I can, before buying anything new....we'll see how long that will last! 

Here is some Snowman Soup packets (Hot Chocolate sachet, Candy Cane and mini marshmallows) I made up for Lesley at Little Treats in Spondon, Derby for Christmas. These were fun to make, used up a lot of my old papers and proved to be quite popular.

Here is a card I made for
Sheila and Dave's 25th Wedding Anniversary.
Picture isn't very good as was taken inside whilst dark but it was the only chance
I got to take it before giving it to them.

Hope to be back soon.
