Thank You Trevor!

Well I am as officially bad at making and sending thank you cards as I am at blogging!
This is my thank you to Trevor, my uncle for sending us Marks and Spencers vouchers for Christmas (yes Christmas!).
I decided to keep it simple and used the gorgeous orange papers from Daisy D's Autumn collection. The ribbon is a piece from my scraps that with orange trim, just happens to co-ordinate. The Thank You was printed using my trusty design runner.

So what did we do with the vouchers? Used them to buy Chocolate Melting Middle puddings of course! - don't you just love them ..... the way that hot glossy melted chocolate flows gracefully out of the pudding as you break into the soft dark brown sponge - (just think of Dervla saying that in her beautiful Irish accent - sounds much sexier!).
Off to put the oven on!!!!

Digi Scrapping

I have been investigating digi scrapping this weekend, no layouts yet, but I just had to share with you that I found a digi website with gorgeous cats. Now anyone that knows me will know that I am a sucker for cats.
Just look at this little cutie!
It is from Weeds and Wildflowers (what a wonderful name) - just check out their shop here. They even have a sweet little blinkieThere is a lot more to do yet and certainly a lot more to learn! But these images were very different to anything else I was finding in other digi stores. I did Kirsty Wiseman's digi classes a few months ago - which were excellent, but I still need some confidence building and I need to change my blog header - so watch this space.

PS - mum seemed to like the wedding dress!!!

Well I'm back in action, did you miss me?!

I spent the last week making 10 ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) for an any ATC swap on UK Scrappers. I chose a flower theme, although a theme wasn't necessary, these are the 3 designs I created.
It was my first attempt at stitching with the sewing machine onto card, I used a rik rak stitch on my Singer, and it was quite effective. The word flower was embossed using my Habico Clear Stamps Typerwriter alphabet font set and embossed using bronze embossing powder. The flower images were then decoupaged onto a Crafty Bitz harlequin background.
I am really looking forward to receiving the 10 cards back, and the inspiration they will give.
Just got 10 cat ones to do now, because I signed up for the cat ATC swap - he, he!!!
