Another card to give me chance to play with some more new stamps I bought.  This one uses one of the many designs in this collection by Clear Dollar Stamps called Home Tweet Home.  There are so many cute images I can't wait to use them all.

I used some patterned papers by s.e.i. and they are embossed and gorgeous to use.  
Twine is from Waltzing Mouse and is a lovely rich brown colour.

Have a great evening.

A quickie post to share a card I made up this morning using some new stamps and dies I purchased recently.

Stamp images by  Paper Smooches called Chubby Chumbs 
and fence die is by Die-namics and is called Woodgrain fence.

I rubbed over the fence die with some brown chalks to show the grain a bit more and added 
some glitter to the eyes.  Coloured using Copics and Prisma pencils.

Weather here today is fab so intend to make the most of it this afternoon!  Have a good weekend.

Sorry its been a while since I last posted.  Its been a little crazy here.  I was at my nieces wedding in Surrey last weekend so was away for a while, then I had a job interview on Tuesday last week, got the job and started Monday this week.  I feel like I'm running a marathon at the mo, I just haven't stopped!

Its all good though but I am finding it hard to make time to do anything remotely crafty soooo,  I am popping in to share a little project I completed a few weeks ago.

 I put this wee lady together using an adapted bit of a Tilda template and a bit of my own template - it was actually supposed to be a sheep but the face element of it (my own pattern) turned out a little too long in the face so I made her a cow instead!  I think it worked :)

The dress was an enlarged Tilda pattern and I just added sleeves to the arms to ring the changes a bit.

These little shoes took me AGES to do and were a bit of pain so I very much doubt 
I will attempt to do them again!

I hope to be able to post something again very soon but I am struggling a bit at the moment to spend any quality time getting things done.  Bear with me - I will be back - soon!

Have a great evening all.
