Easy Day

Hi Everyone

Had a real easy day today watching a little TV with my eldest daughter. We watched the box set of Jerico. Not seen it in a while and she just want to take it easy also.

This is a photo of a piece of art work I created for a family friend as a thank you for all the kindness he has shown my youngest daughter throughout her on going illness. He is a big fan of Supernatural and the Winchester boys I must admit I have a kind of soft spot for them myself so no hardship at all creating this piece of work. LOL.

Thank you once again for looking and happy crafting.

Heart with a fairy

Hi everyone

really going to try and keep up with my blog from now on. Things seem to be settleing down now so really no excuse.

Well I thought I would show you all what I made for the circle of crafters iris folding challenge this month. We had to use a heart with it being the month of love and an extra IF design also.

I decided to use the C.O.Cs own heart pattern designed by BobbiLynn but I added my own fairy design. I couldn't keep it simple could I? Oh no I had to place the fairy in front of the heart and mould both designs together.

Some might saY I don't like to make my life easy but I do, I would rather have an easy life than a difficult one but nthis design might tell you differently.

I hope that you like what you see I'm not to sure about the bow on this one but I can always change it later if it really greats on me. LOL

Hugs to you all and happy crafting.


Hi Everyone

Today I have been having a play with the Serif Scrapbook Artist programme and have created these pages using photos my daughter has taken of herself. We certainly can't say that the kids today are shy can we.

The one was taken this morning no idea what she did to it to make it so interesting but I just love it. It is so emo/goth looking that I had to give it a moody treatment. I hope that I suceeded. My daughter likes what I have done with it so that is half the battle won LOL.

This photo was taken again by Brittannie on the way to my mothers the other week. We were stuck in traffic and so she decided to have a play and came up with this dreamy looking image of herself.

It is hard to believe that both photographs are of the same girl taken only weeks apart. They certainly do grow up very very fast..

Thank you so much for taking time out to visit my little blog I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs and happy crafting.

Faceless Fairy

Hi Everyone

This is a new image that I drew but decided not to add a face. Don't ask me why maybe my face drawing ability confidence was lacking that day, I don't know. At first I was unsure about it and the others that I have drawn but the more I look at them the more they grow on me, as you the crafter and the recipient of the finished item can decide what look they may have.

Would be very interested to know what you think. Thanks for looking and comments both positive and hopefully not to negative welcome.

Appliqued tree

Hi Everyone

Had real fun with this one. I received this free from Faith this week for playing along in her challenge last week. If you like the design you can purchase it here. I thought also seeing how the image is called Appliqued tree then it just had to be paper pieced together instead of coloured in. I created the backing papers myself most of which are available at craftsuprint in various colours and kit forms. The ones that are not listed yet will be doing so very soon.

Why not take a look at both website and see what great things are on offer. Plus if you play along this week with Faith and the design team you will receive a brand new stamp to play with and join in the fun all over again this week only this time it will be for free and you can't get better than that!!!

Thanks again for looking at my blogg.

Kaela in spring D2D challenge

Hi Everyone

Here is a card that I made using Faiths brilliant Kaela in Spring set. It is for this weeks challenge over on her Blog. I have left the card sentiment free as I am not sure who is going to get this yet. I have 2 people in mind for 2 different occasions and I know if I put one sentiment on it I will have wished I had put the other so until both cards are made it will remain sentiment free.

Why not take a look and see what it is all about. If you play along every week every Friday you will find a free gift from Faith in your email box. There are some really lovely designs avaiable.

Thanks for looking and hope everyone has a good time playing along with us all.

Hugs Sarah
