It's been ages.. whoops

My goodness where are the weeks going, they are flying by and I've been so busy having a clear out of clutter that my crafting time seems to have disappeared which isn't good as my sanity seems to have disappreared with it.
I have had a few sneaky minutes and heres a card I have made using the new Magnolia Apples & Cherries images. This one is the carosel horse and the sitting Tilda which I have coloured with Promarkers.

I used summer papers from Docrafts for the backing and used a pink straw which I wrapped green satin ribbon around it to give the appearance of the pole. Which i think works really well.

Here's a close up of my Tilda on the horse. I'm really pleased with how this turned out.

Hopefully be back for more blogging soon.

Monday again?? Here's some Christmas Toppers I've been working on

Well I know it's a bit early for Christmas but seen as my local craft shop has a section filled with goodies maybe it isn't. I raided my box of Christmas bits and pieces and some Magnolia Tilda's from various Christmas selections and here are a few I have made.

I have used Kars Christmas paper that I got from www.stampeezee.co.uk last week and used bits I'd got in my craft stash.

All the Tilda's have been coloured with Promarkers and also the Christmas tree in the picture above.
These are all available from my little Crafty corner on ebay
See you all soon

Hello Monday!

Wow how quickly did that Weekend go. To quickly for me had a busy weekend helping our lovely Nanny.

I had a little spare time and I made a few new toppers and here they are

I had some new Magnolia Rubber Stamps arrive last week and 2 of them were the Grand Oak tree and a set of leaves. I have gone for a Autumn theme with this small topper. I have stamped a leaf on the backing and then cut the tree in half and added a cute Tilda in her rain coat image.

I tried something a little different on this topper with Edwin. I weaved several different strips of coordinating papers, I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

A little cute Tilda topper as she waits for her bath to run.

A baking topper her of Magnolia's Tilda holding a rolling pin and stood next to a jars. I have used glossy accents to give a glass front to the cookie jar.

And finally Tilda and a peony topper with deep orange backing papers and a stack of paper flowers.

All my toppers and cards are availble on Ebay and usually start from 75p

It's Saturday and the sun is shining

Good Morning everyone, just a quickie this morning as I desperately need to do some work, I have been trying to use some of my other rubber stamps and here's a couple of examples for you.

I love woodware stamps and have quite a few, this is a Wooden Stamp of a wizard and then I used the Clear Stamps of a Wizardy theme to stamp the backing.

Here is an always popular image from Penny Black Rubber Stamps of a Cat in a bra on the washing line. I've left this one quite plain compared to some of my previous designs as I have popped it on a A6 size backing card.

All my toppers are availble for sale and can usually be found on Ebay.

Some new card toppers this week

I'm enjoying the peace and quiet now my 2 boys have gone back to school and so have enjoyed making some more toppers.
Here they are

I have used my Promarkers as usual to colour the images of Tilda by magnolia & the letter rack by Hanglar Stanglar.

I have used a lovely Tilda image and placed her with some scrummy treats
Makes me feel hungry!

Finally for today here is a topper I have made which I have made a simple pocket in the corner and slotted in a pull out recipe card ( I have a whole pack of these) and then stamped the backing with Woodware's sweet treat stamps.
Just perfect as it is now Lunchtime and they have me hungry.
Thanks for looking
