Cottage Garden Cards

 A busy day at the Cottage, Enjoying making these cards with the Cottage Garden Paper Pad and Candi Pack found in the Craftwork Cards section of the shop.
The square card has been made using just 1 sheet from the pad layered onto some Mirri, I punched out some butterflys from the left over pieces of the page and also stamped the sentiment onto scraps from the same page. Added some gems a little glitter and the card Candi....Quick and simple yet so stunning.

 The 2 cards above, again each of them made from just 1 sheet of the Cottage Garden paper pad and Candi pack.

 This card has been made using 2 sheets from the pad, I have decoupaged the flowers with just 1 extra layer, These have been coloured using promarkers as on the sheet they are a mono tone colour.
A little added sparkle with a quickie glue pen and some glitter and a stunning birthday card is ready....
Please take a look around the shop and see if I can tempt you....... Happy Crafting..... ju x

Normal Service Resumes....... Well almost

Its been a long time since I last blogged.....
But at last I have something to blog about, I have just opened, in the last month my own little crafty shop.   
As you all know I am a mad cardmaker and love to make cards. I am hoping to show some of my skills in cardmaking once again using quality products, which we all know make all the difference to our projects
If your in for a crafty fix today, you've had your chips, but hopefully in the morning I will be on top of Blogger once again and into the swing of using Blogger once more,
Have a fun filled crafty day and evening.........  ju x
