5 minute cards with Toppers

Happy Thursday Everyone
We all do it don't we? Yes there is always a need for a last minute card, someone forgotten pops up or an unexpected card pops through the door, I am sure I get caught out most years.
So this year I set myself a target 5 minute cards
I had discovered Crafty Ribbons do the most cutest toppers at an absolute amazing price
Check them all out Here

I really can not wait to get my hands on more of these beauties
I simply grabbed a few dies and popped them through my big shot but to be honest you could just use them as they are
So I gathered all my supplies and set the clock....

I dusted round each image with Distress Oxides, die-cut 3 little tags and stamped a sentiment in each and adhered a little string , layed up using foam tags to stick each topper to white card stock (cut at 3.5 x 3.5) , attached my ribbons, and then adhered to coloured card stock (cut at 4.0 x 4.0). I then glues to my 5 x 5 white card blank , attached my tag and a couple of dew drops to each card. I then stopped the clock
I worked on all three cards together and I stopped the clock at 14 minutes and 25 seconds!!
The lush ribbons are from the Christmas Cupcake Collection
and I have used
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Chocolate
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Red
Christmas Cupcake ~ Happy Christmas Turquoise

CoCo Pops Wreath

Happy Thursday to you all
Here today to share with you my first ever wreath
I love the colours of Autumn so that was my aim but also to feel Christmassy

First of all I cut out the circles several times so it was nice and sturdy , I used empty Coco pops cereal boxes ideal for my project
The Ribbon is from the 
I totally adore these Embellies, you get tons of WOW bits n pieces
Once my ribbon was attached I was away stamping tons of different flowers and leafs from different stamp sets, 
Stamp Sets used
I used this set for the leaves, this will be well used I adore them and such a lovely size they were perfect

I then set about painting using Shimmering Watercolour paints, scrunched them up and left to dry
I layered up the flowers using Pinflair glue for depth and popped the leaves in any gaps and there my project was complete 
I really enjoyed making this up and am looking set to make another real soon!

Big Wheels Keep on Turnin'

Happy Wednesday to you 
Wow these weeks are flying past so very quickly
I've totally lots and lots of Mojo when it comes to crafting I hope it lasts 
so many new ideas and things I want to try and make
I started last week with a penny slider card (new to me), I cut it from a Sil file I loved it so much I decided to make my own to fit a 6 x 6 card
I also found a lack of pennies used as sliders, so I made my own from thick cardboard sandwiched together with a foam pad , works a treat

I have taken 3 main photo's as I liked to follow her on her little adventure.
The stunning image is from Tiddly Inks and is called Big Wheels Keep on Turnin'
She is half way there!!
The papers I have used .....hmmmmm confession time I was in B and M's I love there huge craft section it's perfect for getting my Granddaughter bits and pieces when I found a 12x12 double sided pad £2.99 Bargain so in my trolley it did fall.
When I got it home I realised actually how beautiful it was , such good quality to ....Sooooo I sneaked a few pages ssshhhhh
The flowers were a very old die also cut on one of the sneaked papers lol
With some sparkling gems added
The sentiment was a freebie stamp from a mag.
The lovely ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons
Sheer Puff Dot - Royal
very scrummy
Thank you so much for popping by today

Shadow box Hanger

Happy Monday to you all
Now I really needed a break from Christmas makes
I love Crafting with my Granddaughter, she totally appreciates hand made items and the time that goes into making items, so I decided on a little present for her for her bedroom for no other reason than just because....
Now as its for Felicity it totally had to be pink!
So I made a shadow box for her to hang
I cut the  box on my portrait- Really adore making these

I was so very pleased how it turned out
The images I used are from Tiddly Inks
(The flowers in the center were also with the image)
Felicity was generated on my computer
I coloured the images with Graph'It Markers and Polychromo Pencils
I then decorated with paper flowers, gems and some random buttons

The ribbon I have used is from Crafty Ribbons and probably one of my much used
Organza Swiss Dot Ribbon ~ It comes in an array of beautiful colours - I have just restocked and treated myself to the Want It All such great value!!

I totally adore those lush ribbons and the fitted perfectly with the Image I chose.

Happy Halloween

What another fun weekend we have had
Our lovely Granddaughter Felicity came to stay
We had a spooky visit to the farm on Friday where there was a Halloween experience
It was great everything from Pumkin carving to a spooky tractor ride where we got squirted with water by skeletons, our driver was hit over the head by a grave digger and he continued to drive the tractor (not very well I might add)
Felicity goes home tommorow so alas will not be with us for Halloween but that did not stop her crafting
this little lot took her hours and hours
Soooo Happy Halloween to you all
Love from Grandma & Felicity
