wedding day

Hiya everyone
Hope your all fine, dandy and enjoying this mild weather we're lucky enough to be having.
I was making myself a cuppa there and looking out the kitchen window waiting for the kettle to boil.  Can you believe I still have summer bedding blooming away and some of the plants are still budding too and on top of that Mr Squirrel whom we haven't seen for weeks made an appearance too. 
Anyway, today's card is a commission for one of my regular customers that I made a month or two ago but have only now got around to blogging.

I've left this quite understated as this lady prefers her cards 'non fussy' so have only added a few blooms, some ribbon and a wee charm.  
Thanks for popping in, have a good old crafty afternoon :)

Pretty Penelope

Hiya everyone
It's my turn to host over on  Art by MiRan today and my new favourite image to showcase
This is Lady Penelope.  Stunning in her evening attire.  I just loved her as soon and I saw her and knew straight away she would be coloured in grey hues.

let's paint

Morning everyone
Hope your all fit, well and crafting lots
Today's card is one I made a few weeks back but being the bad blogger I am I'm only now getting around to showing it to you.  I just ever seem to have the time to keep this as updated as I'd like :)

I love my teddy and a DT call

Hiya Girls
It's that time of the month where myself and the other Dressy Girls show you some new releases available from today at the All Dressed Up Etsy Store

So, I hope you have had plenty of  allotted crafty time and are ready for some gorgeousness from the lovely Wendy. There are four gorgeous new images for you this month


      Aren't they fabulous? 

We are having a DT Call too.  Us Dressy girls are looking for a few more members to join our merry band :)
Follow the link for all the deets on how to enter.

Here's my card for this week.

I've gone all CAS with this one but I do like it and it was a nice change to paper piece rather than colour.
Don't forget that you still have loads of time to enter our anything goes challenge too.  We'd love to see you play along, just remember to use an All Dressed Up image on your creation
Happy Crafting

Good morning  Girls
It's my turn to host the Artbymiran blog today so I do hope you like my little bit of inspiration.
I love the traditional reds and greens for Christmas but thought I'd play around a wee bit with some non traditional colours.  Plus I've had these papers from many Christmases ago, so they are getting used this year by hook or by crook.

So now that I've shown you me card I've a question for you.  Who has stared their Christmas shopping? I've not a lot of people to buy for but haven't even thought about it yet.  Best get my thinking cap on and make a start soon or I'll be buying in the Boxing Day sales lol
