You're One of a Kind

What a wet and rainy day it has been today....just perfect for crafting :)

I have had so much fun making this card :)   I have used some papers from  Kaisercraft 'The Lake House' paper pad and a Pure Innocence- Paper doll stamp. The Die-namics paper dolls die was just perfect for this image.  I have used a Memory box die to make the flowers and added some pearls to embellish.  The sentiment has been stamped onto a die-cut strip that was part of the paper pad.

Halloween Tags

I don't usually make anything for Halloween and not really sure what I am going to do with these but I just couldn't resist the little spider and web in this set so thought I should do something with them :)  I have inked three luggage tags with Distress ink and then stamped a feint script background.  I then simply stamped the images with black ink and added some black and brown ribbon to two and then stamped the little spider onto some cream ribbon with black brilliance ink and used it on the tag without a spider on.  Well not done much crafting lately except for my demos and a make and take at work really will have to get my self into action and get creative again....perhaps this rainy cold weather will do the trick!

For You...

Good afternoon everyone!  Well it's been a lovely day here in North Yorkshire, the sun has been shining and I have enjoyed some time crafting :)  Had a good walk round the market with Maisie my doggy and once I have posted this I am going to indulge in a Cadbury's Caramel ice-cream :) Mmmmm, yummy!

The stamp I have used here is Ketto's Dolly, by Stampingbella.  I have stamped her and coloured her with my Copics, then cut her out with my nesties.  I have used some of my favourite 'ever' 12x12 papers, it's the Bonjour collection from Kaisercraft, I just love the colours sooo much.  The background paper has been embossed using a cuttlebug border folder as I thought the paper, although very pretty, looked a little plain.  I am happy with the  embossed border, it stands out nicely with the 'bling' in the centre of the flowers :)  I have used some lace that I had in my ribbon and lace box and added some Hobbyhouse flowers and leaves that I got from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ticket is a Lili of the Valley stamp that I have stamped and cut out and then coloured with my Copics.  

Well thanks for popping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your day.
Love and Hugs
