Yes another one.....Please follow me on Bloglovin!

Hi everyone :)

I hope you are all well and not having too much snow wherever you are in the world lol 

The same as a lot of people lately I have joined up with Bloglovin in a panic when I heard the news that Google Reader will be closing on the 1st of July. I'm not too sure if the google "friend connect" follower thingy that we all have and use will be dissapearing also but I actually read and keep track of blogs via Google Reader so this is a pain in the backside :( I find it a lot easier as with the blogger dashboard you keep having to scroll up the page once you have click on a blog in your list.......

Anyway enough waffeling from me lol!!  I have added a follow me button for Bloglovin to the very top of my sidebar and I would really appreciate it if you could follow me on there.

Thanks a million,
Happy Crafting,
Fiona x

For my card I have tried to make it look distressed by filing and ripping up the edges.....but I think this will be my last attempt at the grungy/distressed look lol I always just think that my customers will just think that I have used old ripped paper and think that the card just looks tatty hahahaha!

Anyway..... For my card today I have used this little sweetheart Oliver Greeting Farm Stamp from the Happy Day set. I have coloured him with my ProMarkers. My papers are from the Crafts Too Spots and Stripes paper pack. I also added some twine and small green star shaped buttons from my stash.

An extremely early Christmas card



Well I think I can safely say that March is the earliest that I have ever made a Christmas card lol but I recently won a Christmas paper pack and decided that I wanted to use some of it as a bit of an incentive to make at least one Christmas card extra early this year. So here it is.....
For this card I have used "Tilda Hiding Gift" Magnolia stamp. All of the papers that I have used are from the Carta Bella "Merry and Bright" collection ( that I won recently couresy of SJ Crafts) And they are very BRIGHT lol not my usual style at all but I fancied a change :) I have used an oval nestie die, the scalloped oval was cut with my Cricut and all the various sizes of snowflakes were cut with my Die-namics snowflake dies. The ribbon, charm, gems and buttons are all from my stash. And lastly I added lots of Stickles to Tilda and also to my mini buttons at the bottom of the card.
