Cats and Dogs

Hello Crafty Friends,

This week is so hectic, my mind is full of appointments and things that need to be done etc...
However I did enjoy a lovely day away from it all yesterday with the hubby, nice afternoon tea with a nosey round the garden centre followed by a trip to costa before collecting the boys from school.. Then it's back to the madness of rushing around getting things done lol..

Managed to get some magazine work completed and posted this week and have masses of orders to get done along with DT work, good job I love being in my craft room ;-)

For todays share I have a couple of pop up box cards I made with the Free papers and images from Making Cards Magazine..


I fussy cut the cats and dogs out then arranged them popping out of the pop up box card..
Sentiments I printed from the computer

Die cutting

Morning Crafty Friends

Hope you are all well and had a good start to the week..

I've made several cards like the one I'm sharing today for occasions like weddings and anniversaries. However one of my customers asked if I could make another one in pinks and whites. So here it is slightly different to ones I usually make, where I add champage glasses, names etc..

I used Lace Heart create a card die from Crafters Companion along with nesting hearts and heart embossing folder also from Crafters Companion. Sentiment I printed on the computer. Ribbon, twine, pearls and resin rose all from my stash

Craft Stacks...

Good Morning Bloggers,

Hope you've all had a good weekend. I had a brilliant day yesterday at Faye's Copic Classes, Learned so much and had a really lovely day.. Even spent a few pennies on few more copics and MFT stamps sets ;-) Looking forward to the next classes in September..

I've been looking through all my un-blogged cards this morning. So thought I would share a selection of Christmas cards I still haven't shared with you.. These are ones I made using the Hunkydory Craft Stacks.


For the top two cards I used the Twas the night before Christmas stack and for the bottom two cards I used the Santa Paws Stack.. All papers, toppers, borders and sentiments are in the stacks so make it easy to make quick cards. Ideal at Christmas time.



Thanks for stopping by today.

Hope you are all well..

There's a new challenge starting today over at
Crafty Friends Chall.  

And as Pink Gem Designs are sponsoring Crafty Friends have asked if any of the Pink Gem Designers would like to play along as guest designers..

The Theme is "Love is in the Air"

So I decided to use the super cute Love Owls coloured with copics

The backing paper is some adhesive heart fabric that I purchases years ago from Docrafts.. The sentiment stamps are from Crafter's Companion set as are the die cut lovehearts.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-
