Hello Everyone,

I'm struggling a little this week and have little time having spent most of it at Addenbrookes Hospital.  I am pleased to say that the kidney transplant for my brother in law went extremely well and hopefully he will be home on Tuesday and make visiting a little easier as the journey is taking it's toll.  Heather, (the donor), went home yesterday and was looking really well.  I'm happy the operation is behind us now, it's been a long journey for sure and now time for them both to recover and in Tim's case, to start to enjoy life and food once again!

I'm sharing my DT card for Live and Love Crafts and I have used papers from Pion Design's To My Valentine collection.

I have used a new stencil from Dutch Doobadoo due out on 1st February.  Also new on my card is the Vintage Flourish Cupid die, isn't it cute :)

I added 20mm red roses to the centre of a bark heart an added red cord.

Just to the right of the Pion Design image is one of Live and Love Crafts new paperclips

I used the sending love heart die and added pearl dots using the Dutch Doobadoo pearl pen in black.  The gorgeous butterflies are from the To My Valentine Borders sheet.

 I cut a tag in matching paper and added a cord bow and a beautiful embellishment.

Summer Time

Hello, Tracy here sharing my card using of the forthcoming releases due out in February and showcased at CHA recently.  I think this image could be used for so many occassions, birthday, get well, mother's day, thinking of you etc.etc. and the good news is it is coming to NOOR DESIGN UK.

The image is by DoveArt Studios and called Tea Time, look out for it in the middle of February.
I made two diecuts of the LOVELY VIEW die, one in the matching paper and one in cream cardstock. If any of my customers are looking for this die just message me and I can get one for you :)

You will find the image in the pre-order section of the store, head on over to pre-order to avoid disappointment.  Click on the image to be taken to the store.

I have coloured using distress inks and used the new wilted violet and abandoned coral for the first time, lol.

The spade is from the Springtime die set

I used the floral edge for the top of the card

Vintage flourish leaves

The bobbly flower is by joycraft as is the large white flower which comes in a pack of 6 white and 6 red, all links below.

Hope you like it.

Hello Everyone,

Before I get onto today's post a reminder that the 30% OFF over 200 dies at Noor Design UK ends tonight at 8pm, don't miss out, hop over after you have read my post today, lol.

Monday again and time for my LLC DT card.  This week I am kicking off a new theme of "winter", and it has certainly hit home this weekend with flourishes of snow and freezing temperatures.  Hopefully it won't last, I'm not keen on the snow, unless I'm at home snuggled in front of the fire :)

I have used papers from Pion Design's "Christmas in Norway" collection and also from the Pion Design Palette Blue cardstock VI.

The image is also by Pion Design Grandma's Attic "Christmas Time".

I have added 20mm white roses and a 19mm white rose to the centres of the poinsettia's and also on the little sledge.

I couldn't find my shabby white frantage containing little specks of gold so I had to use my chunky white frantage, which is dotted around.

String pearls and lace across the bottom.

I also added a little Melissa Frances paper doily behind the image.

Hugs Tracy x
