Thought you might like to see my dining table! Craft stuff has taken over. You can make out my Patchwork pal images I stamped and coloured to the left of the picture which have now been made into a christmas card. The table has been cluttered for a while as i usually pack up my christmas craft stuff and put away upstairs but while I am using it I cant be bothered to keep packing it away and get it out again much to my families disgust. Oh well only a few more weeks and then it can all go away until next year!!

Just love the Daisy & Dandelion christmas papers. The rich red and green papers are sooo nice. The sentiments are from the paper pack also.These are just a selection I have made using my magnolia stamp, pink gem rudolph stamp and craft uk santa and penguin set. I have had so much fun colouring them in with my copic pens. I have been searching for fabric christmas flowers ie poinsettia's to no avail , so decided to get the sizzlit die and make my own paper ones!! The father christmas' in the craft uk set are adorable. I have one problem I keep stamping and colouring so I have loads of images to make into cards.LOL.The magnolia card has been coloured with promarkers- my superbargains from hobbycraft. Still prefer my copic though.

Got a busy few weeks ahead on the card front. I have recently made a 40th ,50th and 60th and Golden wedding anniversary card for my mum but forgot to take pictures.OOps.
I have now made another 40th and still have a 50th to make for me, for the same people, so need different designs and styles!
I also need a wedding anniversary card for OH at the weekend and birthday card for son for August.I am also trying to get ahead with my xmas cards so will post some of those soon. I have the patchwork pals kit and some pink gem stamps along with lots of other things from previous years so have lots to play with. Now we have the school holidays upon us I have a little bit of spare time as I get school hols off too..yippee. Off to check out some flower diecuts so I can cut my own. Fed up cos my super bargain flowers have been lost in the post they were posted a fortnight ago and no sign of them so have now given up hope of ever getting them.
The blue card has been made with Kanban card as the base and papermania textured card which has been embossed with swiss dots and floral border. I have used craftwork card flowers. One is lightly inked blue and the other embossed with the swiss dots folder.The pearl gems are from lakeland so once I have used them all up will have to find some somewhere else. The stamp is a Sarah kay masked over an inkadinkado stamp and coloured in with copics.
The lilac card has DCWV pocket full of posies card on it and the stamp is a Wild Rose studio stamp. Coloured in with copics and then I have used a versamark pen to pick out the flowers and added clear embossing powder to add dimension . I have also added coloured gems to the flowers.The flowers are from the craft section of WH Smiths and the centre is a papermania jewelled brad.

Have just started to make this card with a lovely sugar nellie stamp from Funky kits . I have not quite finished as it needs a sentiment adding but will wait until I know who I am sending it to. I was lucky enough to get a lucky bag and this was one of the stamps included. Coloured with copic pens.I have used my cuttlebug swiss dots emboss folder and nestabilities. I have used some self adhesive silver border but am awaiting my first Martha stewart punch.

Here is a picture of a birthday card I made for an 11 year old. I used the crafters delight fairy castle template and decorated with smirk decoupage. The girl waving from the window is from a set from the woodware clear range and was coloured in with Sakura glitter pens. Word of warning don't make the same mistake as me and make sure you position the largest turret so it will fit in an A4 envelope!!!
