Fed up now

Good morning fellow bloggers. Well as the title says I am truly fed up at the moment. Work not finished yet and looks like I won't be back to normal till Monday now. Anyway, here is a project I did last year on my embroidery machine. It is a style of embroidery called Freestanding Lace. You embroider onto Water soluble Vilene. When finished you rinse under the tap to remove the stabilizer and leave to dry. This is for hanging in the window with one of those sucker things. I have just propped it up against my window to photograph. Well workmen just arrived so will get back later.
Thanks for dropping by.

Friday, 12 March 2010


Hello fellow bloggers. Haven't been able to do very much this week as having major works done at home. Craft room had to be cleared for floorboards coming up so everything is stacked behind the settee and difficult to access. However managed to haul out some of it and made a simple card for the challenge at Cute Card Thursday. The theme is celebrating and I have used dinner tilda and I think she is celebrating something special. I have masked her so she is sitting on the tree trunk. I have used the Tutorial for the base card from last weeks Just Magnolia challenge. Coloured with copics. SU paper and gem brads. Cut out was done with the Top Note Die. Flowers and corner gems are papermania. Ribbon is SU white grosgrain.
Hope to be back to normal by Thursday next week. Fingers crossed.
Many thanks for visiting and leaving your lovely comments. I so enjoy reading them. I also like to visit you.

Mother's Day

Hello again, I have done this card for the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers. We had a colour combo of Tulip Yellow and Baby Pink with the addition of some stitching on the card. I have used a digi image and unfortunately can't remember where I downloaded it from. If someone knows can you please let me know so I can credit the company. I have a base card of Bazzill and the mount is Bazzill polka dot. I did this parchment double frame and stitched it together with gold thread. I cut the image out with a craft knife so I could mount it without losing too much of my parchment backing. The vase has a patterned cut out over it to make it look more authentic. But I'm not sure it shows that well in the picture. Fairly simple card but time consuming. Thanks for visiting me and leaving comments. I read all of them and enjoy returning the favour.

Two challenges in one

Start of a new week and I hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for visiting my blog. This card is for two challenges. It is for the Anyone for anya challenge and the lili of the valley challenge. I have used the fabulous sketch by Domi . I loved this sketch and I am putting this one in my folder. Thanks Domi. Haven't got any LOTV stamps yet but hope to soon.
The anya challenge was for something not usually done and this card has been coloured with the new Promarkers I bought last week. Just got 10 of them but I love these. I find them easier to control than the copics. Need lessons in blending! Also this Anya stamp is a new one. Papers are SU flowers and buttons from stash. Ribbon from a local shop who sells cake crafting goodies. Got my sewing machine out and stitched around the edge. Ovals cut with Xcut frames. Pearls are SU from pretties kit.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog and I love to read any comments that are left.
