Few more Cards for this Week

Here are a few more cards for this week.

I think Christmas is coming as that seems to be the theme at the moment.

I have been using Fairy Dust on my card, and I think you will agree that the results on the Christmas tree is lovely. I even used Gilding Foil to give it a lovely finish

Secretary says sorry but the colours are not up to scratch this time.  The lighting at the craft club wasn't at it's best. Never mind the next lot might turn out better.

Thanks for looking in, comments will be appreciated
Take care

Love Sandy xx

2 Cards for this Week

Hi Everyone

Here are just 2 cards for this week. I have made these using the lovely Heartfelt Creations Hibiscus dies and then used Wow embossing powders to give them a lovely glitter effect. When these were dry I painted them with the gorgeous Spectrum Noir Aqua Tint paints.

Hope you like the finished effect.

Well that's it for this week.

Now the Secretary speaking, -- I don't think Sandy knows I have put these on here, we will see how long it will take for her to realise haha!!

Have a really good week everyone, comments will be very much appreciated as usual, thanks for taking the time to look in.

Some more Cards

Hi Everyone
Here are a few more cards. As you can see most of them have been done using paints.
I stamp, emboss and then paint the flowers. Also I have painted the backgrounds.
(Actually this is the secretary writing this - The photos didn't come out very good, they don't show the true beauty of the cards. But here goes anyway at least I have done my best haha)

This one is folding  box card

The three above are the painted ones. 

And finally a card that I haven't painted.

Well now for a bit of news. This is the Secretary speaking, I have had Sandy's laptop at home, to do a bit of work on it to get it running faster. Fingers cross I think I have managed the challenge.

Whilst I had it I decided to set my boss up with her very own Google account, so hopefully with a couple of lessons she will be able to put her own cards on here.  That way she can tell you more about the cards and how she gets to such a great result.

Well that's about it for now, have a good crafting week, take care, and any comments will be appreciated. Thanks for looking in xx

Birthday Cards

Hi Everyone
Just three more cards for you this week. Her ladyship has only allowed me 3 this time (only kidding)
Two of the Cards are one again using the Groovi Plates, I just love them. I started the craze going at the Craft Clubs, everyone is hooked now and cursing me for making them spend money. I don't mind because the more plates they get the more choices I have to borrow. We have some proper parchers at the clubs so they can give us help and advice on tricks of the trade. All looking good.
Enough of the rabbit,

The lady is really Groovi

Above is the Frilly Circle from Groovi, daisies are included

The card above is made from a wonderful stamp I bought at Ally Pally in the last show.

I hope you like all the above cards, comments will be most welcome
Have a good week
Love Sandy

Groovi Cards

Hi Everyone
A bit of a long time coming but at last the secretary has woken up. She has had photos of these cards
for simply ages now and at last is putting them up for you all to see.
As you will see I have now been bitten by the GROOVI bug by Barbara Gray, they are wonderful plates and once you get used to them the bug bites. As you will see haha!!

 The two cards above are done with  the Groovi plates

The remainder of the cards are ones made recently.

Well thats all for the moment. The secretary has been having problems (so she says) with uploading some of these.  The Lady groovi  card and the Shoe with flowers card wouldn't stay put they kept turning and wouldn't rotate, so she has had to redo them.

So far so good, hopefully she might put some on here more regularly.

That's it for now thanks for taking the time to look in and any comments will be appreciated, even if you tell me to get a new secretary LOL!!!

Bye for now Sandy

Hi Everyone
Here are five cards for this week. My secretary is trying to do an upload of my cards for me

 The one above is a lovely shade of Purple, but unfortunately the colour didn't come out that well so hope the boss agrees it is ok, if not I will have to remove it LOL!!

Hope you like my cards, thank you for looking in, any comments will be appreciated

A wall Plaque and more cards

Hi Everyone
The first item I am showing you is a wall plaque I have made on a canvas,
I rather like it and so does my friend (Secretary).

Now for a few cards

The one below is done using the fabulous Groovi plates by Barbara Gray of Clarity Stamps. The ladies at the Tuesday club have now decided to buy these plates. Pergamano made so easy and very very fast.

Hope you like all the above, comments will be very much appreciated

Book Folded Vase


My secretary has at last woke up.  I have been nagging her for months to put some of my work on here to show, she kept coming up with all sorts of excuses. She said she was having trouble getting items on here.

I suppose I had better believe her so here goes a picture of the vase I made out of a book. I then decorated it with all these artificial flowers (as the vase doesn't hold water - it would get a bit soggy)

Less waffle here's the picture

Well that seemed to work LOL!!

I will have to speak to her nicely again so she will put more on here (fingers crossed)
Thanks for looking in, comments will be appreciated
