happy birthday

 good morning everyone and welcome to my share for today
i thought that i would have a change of colouring medium on my card project today and i've been dabling with my prismacolor pencils.
i felt a little rusty, it's been quite a while since i used them last.

Fairy wings
my card has been kept fairly simple using glittered backing papers and i've used white glitter card for all the die cuts to coordinate the project. 
pink and white always go perfect together.
i just love all the sparkles.


here's my list of goodies used:
card: 6x6" white base, glittered paper & card from my stash, strathmore 400 series paper (image)
ink: memento espresso truffle
rubber stamps: Lili of the valley image and sentiment
dies: ldrs, tonic, magnolia, corner die from my stash
embellishments: pink satin ribbon, glitter paste and sakura glitter pen.
medium: prisma colour pencils in:
white, eggshell, peach, light peach, light umber, hot pink, deco pink, lavender, chocolate, dark brown.

for my next projects i am debating which images i need to choose for my up-coming distress ink colouring fest. 
oh the dilemma lol

all it leave me to say now is:
thanks for popping by, enjoy your day and craft happy. Ann. xx

knitted dolls dress


good morning crafters
popping in today with a spot of knitting, it's been a while since iv'e picked up a pattern, followed it all the way through and made a little dress. 
i found this little cutie pattern via: ravelry.com 
ravelry is a site that you can join were knitters and crocheters can go to give, ask and share plenty of tips and ideas and you to can share your makes and knowledge.

voila: my dress, pattern by Julie Williams, little cotton rabitts 


the pattern was straight forward to follow (although i have chosen to use dk wool and 4mm needles) i'm pleased as punch with my little dress.
Now to finish off my doll the dress is intended for.
a number of these cute bunny dresses and other patterns (including bunnies) are available to buy from Julies blog's in the form of a PDF pattern.

all it leaves me to say now is:
thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day and craft happy. Ann

happy christmas to someone special

Hi and good morning crafters.
Welcome to my festive share for today.
For my final share of this year i have created a card using Lili of the valley's: Plum Pudding which was previously coloured in my last colouring fest.
And I would like to take this oppotunity to thank everyone who has visited and been kind enough to follow my blog and leave lovely comments on my projects.  
A HUGE THANK YOU

Today's card:









i have made a 2/3 fronted card using some of my trusted Lili of the valley stamps along with a couple of festive dies.

goodies used:
inks: memento esspresso truffle, distress re-inkers
paper: 6x6" white card base, papers - lili of the valley, silver mirri card
stamps: Lili of the valley - image and sentiment, snowflake from my stash
dies: tonic, joycraft, tutti designs
atyou glitter pens

i have to admit i have hit a few stumbling blocks over the last few months as my Mum took poorly in October and has been hospitalised, this has left me with no energy to colour or craft hence my infrequent post.

Finally i would like to wish you all a very happy and peaceful New Year and i look forward to creating some new projects to share with you all in 2019.

again thanks for stopping by enjoy the festive period and craft happy. Ann xx
