I have always wanted to make a Christmas village,so I started it  about three weeks ago  to give me plenty of time.
  I am still looking for  things to  add to this.
 I made it from a cake stand from Poundland , and the xmas tree ,and lights from poundland to.the light switches are under the two of the houses ,and all the wires are hidden .....the houses and trees I cut on the silhouette ,some a from and others from silhouette store.  I stamped and glittered.. the ground coverage I used card made soft with glycerine and water and crinkled to look like snow, and used  Pva  and water for the snow to stick look better than the picture shows.x

                                                     3 Christmas cards i made

Tuesday, 23 September 2014


I had to put my card things away as we were decorating . Davie did most of it,i can't do a lot now after i damaged the nerves in my lover back ,last year .
 I couldn't wait to start crafting again, so i got the sewing machine out, and these are what i made... lavender tags....i stamped the image on cream cloth ,  and die cut the cloth twice,  and cut 1 card tag... I joined a piece of hessian to the bottom of  of each cream tag, then spayed  repositional stick and spay to hold the cloth both sides of the card tag  while i stitched  it  around ,....leave a gap for filling...   i put lavender from my cut bushes  to fill the hessian bottom........,i used fabric glue to stick  the small tag and around the edge to stop them fraying... ( I used brilliance ink for cloth)

                                                       CREATIVE BLOG HOP

monday 8th sep 2014
I was asked by      (Crafty Sutterbug blog )      if I'd like to join in with the Creative Bloggers Hop.  It's a continuous hop every Monday with a host of inspirational bloggers taking part every week.
So onto the questions

1. What am I working on?
I am card maker,  but at  the moment i am working on designing and making up my own card  cutting files on the   Silhouette Studio Designer software.

2.How does my work differ from others in my genre?
 i dont think my cardmaking differs from other crafters at all, i just like to learn something new all the time, no matter how hard it is, like making a new design of card.

3. Why do I write/create what I do?  
     I love all crafts ,but cardmaking i love the most , both me and my other half are crafters ,so its nice to be crafting in the same room and creating something we have made.

4. How does your writing/creative process work?
   I get a idea and i have to get the card making goodies out ,or sometimes    wake up with a idea.

 This is my contribution to the creative blog hop .
 I have only picked one person to follow ,and its JAN THOMPSON , I have known Jan for many years, and she as always at the other end of my  key board, when i need  help or advise on anything i am stuck with ,she is a great person with lots of talent,
  (well on to you jan.)
